Corrupt LA Politicians Silence Police Support of Occupy
As the Occupiers march to their destination, their hands clutching and thrusting upwards the signs of nonviolence, and peace, cars honk in solidarity and the Occupiers scream and cheer in solidarity as they march closer to their goal and protest the 1% or attempt to prevent an illegal foreclosure, or trying to shut down a port that is bringing in goods which used to be made in the U.S. is now coming in from China with slave labor. But in the distant, a sea of black, officers in military-type fatigue stopped in the middle of the road, the occasional car passes by and the feeling of horror and anger and disgust consumes the Occupiers and over a loudspeaker, they hear: This is an illegal assembly. You are ordered by the state of…to immediately disperse or face arrest and possible less than lethal weapons which includes but are not limited to: pepper mace, rubber bullets and tear gas. The occupiers mic check, ask if anyone wants to leave they can, some do, but many stay and march. Then shots are heard, screams shatter the silence and the arrests and pummeling begins.
According to several LAPD officers, many of the officers are in solidarity with the Occupiers, but because the management including the chief answers to the mayor, and the mayor answer to the big banks, they are silenced. They are silenced because they fear losing their jobs and their pension and for many, after losing their homes, they are one paycheck from losing everything.
The command staff and Mayor knows this, because after the crash in 2008, LAPD detectives were investigating fraud and were on the verge of making arrests. The charges were never filed, because, the mayor ordered the investigation to end…committing a felony. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, a former law student who failed the bar, is committing a federal felony
18 USC § 4 - Misprision of Felony
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
By not arresting the bank managers who approved the loans, which is fraud and a felony, the mayor, chief and their command staff can be charged with felonies and can be fined and imprisoned. And Misprision of Felony covers all felonies and a powerful tool to use while in court. A driver used this in traffic court and won.
The driver was pulled over by the police and was cited for not having the proper registration. The driver then went to court and said to the judge that according to California Vehicle Code, he doesn’t need one and showed the judge the law. The judge was visibly upset and threatened criminal charges (misdemeanor). Then the driver then questioned: Is an infraction according to the California Penal Codee an arrestable offense? And he stated that he wanted a jury trial. The judge then denied the driver a trial by jury. The driver then said that there is racketeering (felony) going on here and I am invoking 18 USC Section 4 Misprison of Felony. The judge realized what she did, got out of her bench and ran out. The Deputy escorted the driver to the court clerk and had all the charges dropped.
Also, there is allegation of blackmail within the police department’s command staff. Also evidence points to former Chief William Bratton , who admitted that he consulted with the Central Intelligence Agency. According to the local CBS affiliate:
“Under Bratton, the LAPD “had interactions with the CIA in the sense of meeting from them from time to time, certainly, just in order to make them aware of our capabilities and our needs,” he said. “There is nothing that precludes that, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
“It’s like going into a surgery and the doctor that’s going to perform the surgery is not going to talk with the anesthesiologist?” Bratton said. “I don’t know that I’d want to be in that operating room”
According to the FAQ at CIA.gov
Does the CIA spy on Americans? Does it keep a file on you?
CIA’s mission is to collect information related to foreign intelligence and foreign counterintelligence. By law, the CIA is specifically prohibited from collecting intelligence concerning the domestic activities of U.S. citizens. By direction of the President in Executive Order 12333, as amended, and in accordance with procedures approved by the Attorney General, the CIA is restricted in the collection of intelligence information directed against U.S. citizens. Collection is allowed only for an authorized intelligence purpose; for example, if there is a reason to believe that an individual is involved in espionage or international terrorist activities. The CIA’s procedures require senior approval for any such collection that is allowed, and, depending on the collection technique employed, the sanction of the Director of National Intelligence and Attorney General may be required. These restrictions on the CIA, or similar ones, have been in effect since the 1970s.
So was the former chief of police who now is in charge of the consulting/security group Altegrity who acquired Kroll and Associates for $1.2 billion, who also monitored the LAD under the Federal Consent Decree, concerned about the well-being of the public as well as the Officers? Apparently no, according to Bratton from an interview by 9/11 truth group WeAreChangeLA.
There is a disconnect between management and non-management, and it cost the city more than $100 million in lawsuits and billions in lost homes because of the fraud committed on and before 2008…which is a felony, but no arrests.
