This clip is a great mix of a famous scene in the 1976 movie "Network" where the newscaster looses it and tries to get America to wake up. It's almost been 40 years now and we're on the verge of Revolution. (I do NOT endorse or mean to suggest any type of violence!)
My Wake Up Call
I found out yesterday that the court granted the defendants' motion for summary judgement in my lawsuit against the City of Redondo Beach police department. What that means is the judge didn't find enough evidence in my complaint to give me a trial. One of the cops Detective Robert Carlborg LIED in his sworn statement. He said "I never met plaintiff until the date she surrendered herself for arrest on the felony complaint." He committed perjury! He was the lead detective when I was burglarized in 2007. I decided not to press charges and he came back to my house to tell me what a big mistake I was making. He was PISSED! All he had to do was plug my name into his computer before he wrote in his sworn statement that he had never met me. He had met me and he didn't like the fact that I didn't do what he wanted me to do. How is that ok? We all know that cops are expert testiLIERS but to commit perjury in a lawsuit that is so clearly provable is beyond me.
I hired an expert witness, Joseph Gunn, who was a police commander, mayoral confidant, deputy mayor and liaison between the mayor's office and the Police commission in the 90's. As a patrolman, he exposed serious corruption among ranking members of his vice-enforcement detail. In his sworn statement he says that the other cop, Jim Booth, acted unprofessionally, not in accordance with accepted police practices and was guilty of police misconduct.
Those are just two facts in this case. With that kind of evidence you would think I would at least get a trial. This is America! How could this happen? Well America, police corruption is SOP, our politicians in both parties don't have our best interests in mind, and big corporations put profits ahead of the health of our planet and it's inhabitants. I don't know about you but I'm as mad as HELL and I'm not going to take it anymore!!!!!
