Gov. Newsom Signs Executive Order Closing Prisons and Youth Lockups to New Prisoners

Taylor Walker
Written by Taylor Walker

California’s 35 prisons and four juvenile facilities will no longer accept new intakes, at least temporarily, under a new executive order from Governor Gavin Newsom meant to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

The order, signed on Tuesday evening, March 24, requires local jails and juvenile facilities to keep those adults and kids convicted of felonies who would otherwise be transferred to an adult or youth lockup run by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The point, Gov. Newsom said, “to make sure we’re not mixing” our incarcerated populations and creating more opportunities for the virus to spread behind bars.

Newsom suspended new prison intakes for 30 days with the option to extend the ban “if suspension continues to be necessary to protect the health, safety, and welfare of inmates and juveniles in CDCR’s custody and staff who work in the facilities.”

Late on Sunday, CA prison officials announced the first confirmed case of a prisoner having contracted COVID-19 at California State Prison-Los Angeles County, in Lancaster.

In addition to the Lancaster case, two CDCR employees at California State Prison, Sacramento, three at California Institution for Men, and a sixth employee at Folsom State Prison have tested positive for COVID-19, as of March 24, according to the CDCR. A seventh worker at California Health Care Facility, a prison in Stockton, has also tested positive but reportedly did not expose other staff or prisoners before being quarantined.

“The State of California is responding in real time and fighting hard to deploy every resource to reduce the spread of COVID-19, and we are working with our public health experts, corrections system and our local sheriff’s departments to ensure proper protocols and procedures are in place to effectively limit risks in correctional facilities,” said Governor Newsom.

Sheriff’s departments running big jail systems, including LA County’s, have been working to reduce low-level arrests and increase early releases. Yet justice reform advocates say more could be done at the local level, and have called on Newsom and state officials to ramp up early releases, as well as compassionate releases for sick and elderly people, in the state’s overcrowded prisons where social distancing is all but impossible.

The governor has not indicated he will support earlier releases from prison, however.

Additionally, coronavirus concerns had previously put parole hearings, which are conducted in-person, on pause at least until March 31.

With Tuesday’s executive order, Newsom sets a timeline and requirements for the state to get regular parole hearings back on track by harnessing the power of videoconferencing tools.

The governor has ordered the Board of Parole Hearings to get remote parole meetings functional by April 13, at the latest — a little less than a month after state officials first suspended the hearings.

  • 1. Reduce arrest.
    2. Release large number of inmates,
    3. And attempt to shut down gun stores.

    Sounds like a recipe for disaster!

    Sheriff has truly lost his mind. Shutting down gun stores, apparently he believes he can change or overrule the 2nd Amendment.

    I have lost all faith in him.

    • Disappointed,

      I don’t know what you’re so upset about. Marijuana dispensaries are “essential” operations, so just get some product and blaze up. You see, a certain element of our society values enumerated rights outlined in our Constitution less than what’s popular with the peanut gallery. Votes are more important than protecting rights.

    • It not surprising the decisions he makes. Compare and Contrast. 1 is versed in the law, the other is versed in politics, liberal politics, literally.

      Sheriff Villanueva
      •Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies from the University of the State of New York
      •Master’s Degree from California State University, Northridge
      •Doctorate from the University of La Verne, both in Public Administration.

      Sheriff McDonnell •Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire
      •Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Southern California. •Graduate of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Executive Institute
      •Executive Education Programs at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

      • Liberal studies does not mean “liberal” indoctrination. Liberal studies/arts is a term describing a broad education amongst several disciplines.
        More importantly, both of these clowns appear to have been “educated” by schools money grabbing from politicians with no education. Pay us money and get a worthless degree to inflate your actual education so you appear smarter.
        I’d put money neither of them actually stepped foot on a single campus for a class at those schools.

        • Well stated…online degree crap, nothing like actually attending and sitting an actual classroom,taking legit tests and meeting deadlines. Funny,command staff loves the online fluff!!

      • Military Service:

        Sheriff Villanueva

        1. USAF, an enlisted man in a troop-carrier unit.
        2. U.S. Army, officer in the National Guard’s 40th Infantry Division; a graduate of the National Guard version of the Army’s Officer Candidate School.

        Sheriff McDonnell

        ?.

        • Military service is of no help in interpreting law and making decisions as the sheriff based on laws.

          • Military service gives help when you’re getting back-stabbed politically, as is happening with A.V.

            It gives fortitude to keep going forward when the going gets tough.

            A.V made it clear that his concern that the long lines wrapping around the gun-shop buildings were not meeting social-distancing guidelines established by the State (six feet as opposed to the six inches we all saw in the pictures so kindly provided by the local MSM).

            A.V provided a valuable public service when he gave voice to his concern, and I thank him for it.

      • Temple and Broadway-I get what you are saying. But then again, the one educated in law broke a lot of laws and violated many employees due process. He’s not a good example to use. Just saying.

        • Cognistator-Ok. Well this past weekend I was standing in a line wrapping around my local Costco not honoring the 6ft rule. I didnt see AV close all Costcos in LA county.

          • Standing in a long line no matter where is how you’ll get this thing; remember, this thing is deeply contagious.

            I only go to places with fast moving lines, which rules out Costco, Wal-Mart, etc.

            Stay well

    • Placer county jail has one inmate infected with covid-19 so they had to move all the inmates from one side of the jail facility to the other side of the jail facility. the inmates who weren’t infected are on lockdown each inmate is in a single cell by their self. My fiance is in there with COPD a very severe case of it and he is fearing for his life. I want placer county jail to release inmate Brandon martherus before he ends up with covid-19 and dies in that facility.

      • Brandon Martherus P00261981 very high risk of contracting covid-19 and it is a even higher risk of fatality for him to be behind bars
        Release him!

  • @Cognistator

    Military service really. No self respecting military man would “brag” about rolling up a supervisor.

    I don’t care what branch!

  • @Cognistator

    It’s not something there will be a story about, but it happened and it’s out there spreading like a wildfire. I’m sure eventually you’ll get wind of it.

    He’s not exactly the type that would appreciate a leak like that, if you know what I mean.

      • @Cognistator

        In a meeting with TB, he said something was being done to his liking and stated “ that’s why I rolled up your last captain…”

        Paraphrase of course.

          • “That Captain” is more of a Deputy Sheriff than AV could ever dream of being. And “That Captain” didn’t have to sue for his stripes & bars…….

    • Ron Hernandez now acquiesced on ALADS Facebook to Villanueva’s antics with the Board of Supervisors. Incredible!

  • Cognistator- AV publicly stated his concern was that people cooped up in their homes and stressed out by the Coronavirus couldn’t be trusted to buy guns now and that gun stores were not essential. Your BS about his concern re:social distancing is ridiculous.
    He is a progressive- an obviously confused one, “I’m pro-second Amendment” but I am closing gun stores despite people wanting to exercise their constitutional right and buy guns to protect themselves not only makes him look like a man without legitimacy but a delusional one as well.
    Oh, illegally trying to close stores and then getting his ass handed to him by those more knowledgeable of his limitations doesn’t help his credibility/effectiveness as a LE leader either.
    You are obviously close to him and smitten (sycophant maybe?) so go ahead and attack me- I’m sure it will be as delusional as your favorite man’s diatribes are too.

    • Gov. Newsom just stated that he’ll defer to the Sheriff on gun store closures. Full particulars can be Googled

      S.F. Gate: gun store closures

      S.F. Gate is the on-line version of the San francisco Chronicle.

  • @Cognistator

    Military service gives help when you’re getting back-stabbed politically, as is happening with A.V.

    His military service didn’t help him recognize the bus Newsome threw him under regarding gun shops.

    • What bus?

      Governor Newsom said “I’ll defer to the Sheriff in this instance, and I’ll defer to sheriffs in their respective jurisdictions….”

      Letting the Sheriff do his job is NOT throwing him under the bus.

      The County Counsel, OTOH, has not publicly released the legal grounding of its opinion.

      Source:

      S.F. Gate: gun shop closures.

      It can be Googled. S.F. Gate is the on-line version of the S.F. Chronicle.

      • The bus the public is currently running him over with.

        Defer doesn’t mean authority. For instance.

        Alex closed gun shops.

        County counsel says you can’t do that.

        Alex re-opens gun shops and says he’ll leave it up to Newsome.

        Newsome says he’ll defer to county sheriff’s. He did not clarify that his order did or did not include gun shops. Newsome deferred to absolve himself from any blame or backlash.

        Alex again closes gun shops because he thinks when Newsome deferred, that meant county sheriff’s have the authority and not I don’t want to make that decision. Closes gun shops after county counsel, a lawyer said that can’t be done. County counsel would come to that conclusion after reviewing the governors declaration, based on the 2nd amendment, and any county ordinances that may apply.

        Plus, the back and forth really makes him look like he doesn’t know what he’s doing in the public eyes.

        • Has it ever occurred to you that county counsel’s move, to email the ASSOCIATED PRESS of all people, without conferring with the sheriff, was designed exactly to do what you claim? County counsel is supposed to represent the sheriff, not oppose him publicly. Those are grounds for disbarment.

          • Has it ever occurred to you JB that we know you’ll defend Villanueva on everything even when he’s wrong. We know you’re afraid to lose your COS assignment because you stated the truth and that upset County King Villanueva.

  • Come on there’s a lot of shitbirds in the military. They aren’t exempt from bad personnel and bad leaders, sorry.

  • Who is kidding who The Sheriff has repeatedly shown that he has no Leadership Skills. None, Zilch, Zero. If he did he would have came in and started leading people but instead he came in like a disgruntled kid that never got to be the Quarterback. Had he not brought in some of these tools he surrounds himself with, he would not be in this mess with the BOS. Case in point he sounds like an idiot when he speaks in public. Do any of this stellar stars tell him? You know they don’t just a bunch of yes men/women. I am so disgusted that I supported this clown.

    • The sheriff is in unchartered territory not by his own making. A worldwide pandemic and a BOS bent on ignoring well established emergency management rules, issuing poorly planned and executed health orders, and creating mass confusion in the LE community. I suppose you could have had McIdiot blathering away saying nothing while the BOS spays and neuters him, but our guy is doing what he can with what he’s given. BTW, he looked pretty good on Spectrum and Dr. Phil.

      Your analogy of the quarterback is pretty funny. In reality the assigned quarterback is being forced aside by Barger, who wants to grandstand with her fellow politicians. What can go wrong, right LOL?

      • The uncharted waters began when Lt. Alex was sworn in last year. Since then he has proceeded to waste millions, yes, millions of tax payer dollars with his boneheaded decisions. Here’s short list of 3 high profile idiotic decisions by the rookie sheriff in training:

        1) Unlawful reinstatement of legally fired former Deputy Mandoyan. The Board and County Council said you can’t do that. Lt. Alex fought and loss that court battle when the judge ordered Lil Alex to take back Creepy Carl’s badge & gun and stop referring to him as a deputy sheriff.

        2) Lt. Alex thought he could fight the Board and County Council by hiring his own high priced attorneys to fight them. When the Board and County Counsel B-Slapped little Alex with a letter informing him that he would have to personally foot that bill himself, he crawled back into his little HOJ Batcave with his tail between his legs quietly gave up on those big money attorneys.

        3) And now, Lt. Alex in an effort to use the COVID-19 Crisis for public attention to feed his “fragile ego” by throwing a public temper tantrum because the Board and the Director of Public Health wouldn’t kiss his arse while they appropriately handle this public HEALTH emergency, he decides to order a shut down of all gun stores with ridiculous and illogical justifications. County Counsel again tells the illiterate Sheriff, that order would be deemed unconstitutional, so Lt. Alex tries to plea to the Governor for backup. The Governor basically says, you are on your own with that one lil guy. So the illiterate Sheriff takes that statement as backing to move forward with his unconstitutional gun store closure order. But wait, he decides to try to gain support from the rest of the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs and over 90% of them tell him to pound sand you dumb knucklehead trainee. So the smartest man in the room defies all logic and moves ahead with his unconstitutional order and in nearly record time is promptly served with a FEDERAL LAWSUIT.

        Now he will waste millions in additional tax payer dollars to defend his idiotic attention grabbing decisions, and for what purpose?

        Dear Board of Supervisors, please protect our hard earned tax paid funds from this illiterate Sheriff. Since he defied the County Counsel’s sage legal advice and directions, please send him a message that any “Punitive Damage Awards” that come out of this lawsuit judgement WILL NOT be covered by the Board with our tax payer funds. Once he has to personally feel the pain of his idiotic decisions, maybe then, he will listen to the much smarter people in the room.

        • @AV Clown Show- First off, your #1 example is still going on. It hasnt finished yet. That’s the Sheriff’s upcoming court date.

          #2-The BOS attorney fees doubled what AV was paying his attorneys.

          Finally, you asked the BOS to protect our hard earned tax dollars? Uh you do know that a few years ago, Mark Ridley Thomas spent $400,000 to remodel his office downtown. Where were you then?

          You know, AV brought one valid point up in the past. Every branch or government service has some sort of watchdog over them to ensure they are following rules and laws. The BOS has no such thing. They are also the biggest BOS in the COUNTRY handling the most money. Do you believe there should be some sort of watchdog over them making sure they are handling those hard earned tax payer dollars you are talking about?

          • Skoppy:

            “The BOS has no such thing…Do you believe there should be some sort of watchdog over them…?”

            There is.

            The BOS is an elected body, and its watchdog is the electorate–the folks who go & vote.

            The question should be “Is the electorate getting the information it needs to make an informed decision inside the voting booth?”

            Too bad there is no objective investigatory body to explore that question, because it applies to every level of government.

            The Right to Know.

        • Clown Show, you really need professional help. AV is living rent free in your head, and you just can’t help yourself. You probably haven’t kept pace with what’s going on, but the entire Mandoyan case has been thoroughly discredited and now the legal crisis is in the board’s hands, not our sheriff. It turns out that members of the McDonnell administration engaged in criminal conduct by concealing exculpatory evidence, and now the board is spending millions of dollars in attorney fees to try to conceal that. Yeah, that’s not AV’s problem, but the board’s.

          AV’s attorney’s are paid the same rate as just one of the THREE law firms the board hired, including one Skip Miller. If you don’t know who he is, he represented Anthony Pellicano when he was convicted of illegal wire taps. You might want to educate yourself before you speak.

          Now that third item on your agenda list, again you fail to educate yourself. The city of LA has shut down all gun stores, and the city of Pasadena has done exactly what the sheriff has done. Now where did you determine that 90% of the police chiefs are in disagreement with the sheriff? You don’t think they have their own little conference calls and work on a consensus? Notice how Mike Feuer, LA’s city attorney, didn’t jump in front of a camera and countered the decision by Garcetti and Chief Moore, or did he? Oh that’s right, he stood right behind them and backed their play.

          You’re an idiot if you think there is any legitimacy to what the board and county counsel does with anything related to the sheriff or the LASD. The sheriff understands emergency management and all the rules, the board doesn’t, and it’s quite evident.

          • Lil Dreamer, you and the rest of Alex’s clowns truly take B.S.’ing to the next level. At least those who have been watching Lt. Alex fail at every turn can easily provide facts and evidence of such failures:

            1) https://abc7.com/5479271/
            Judge rules against Sheriff Villanueva, fired deputy fighting for reinstatement

            2) https://witnessla.com/federal-judge-shreds-fired-deputys-lawsuit-claiming-political-retaliation-in-the-latest-chapter-of-the-never-ending-carl-mandoyan-drama/
            Federal Judge Shreds Fired Deputy’s Lawsuit Claiming Political Retaliation, In The Latest Chapter Of The Never-Ending Carl Mandoyan Drama (Thanks Celeste)

            3) https://abc7.com/lawsuit-over-fired-la-deputy-costs-millions-of-tax-dollars/5747763/
            Lawsuit over fired LA Sheriff’s deputy costing county taxpayers millions in attorney fees
            Here’s an excerpt to help your comprehension of facts: (UPDATE ON JANUARY 22, 2020: About a month after this story was published, Sheriff Alex Villanueva parted ways with his attorneys at Quinn Emanuel who were charging county taxpayers up to $1120 per hour in legal fees. Villanueva’s new attorney, Stanley Friedman, has agreed to accept the county-approved rate of $495 per hour. Villanueva says his decision to change attorneys was not about the dispute over attorney fees.)

            4) As for the LACPCA conference call, lets just say I know a few people who were on that call. We all know the liberal leanings of L.A. and Pasadena. The rest of the 40+ chiefs basically told Alex he’s a fool and you do you! Somehow they were smart enough to avoid the obvious costly litigation that was sure to come. As for Lt. Alex, well we all know he’s not very wise:
            https://ktla.com/news/local-news/nra-and-3-other-gun-groups-suing-l-a-county-sheriff-villanueva-over-shutting-down-firearms-dealers/
            NRA and 3 other gun groups suing L.A. County Sheriff Villanueva over shutting down firearms dealers

            So Lil Dreamer, with all of the above provided for reference sake, I look forward to your head spinning responses. And please, don’t try the “Fake News” way out. SMDH

          • You still trying to resuscitate a debunked accusation? Give it up, you can read the entire LASD response to the OIG report online, just like I did. Try a real reference for once, LOL. BTW, it’s curious how much time you spend cheering on the wisdom of the BOS and assailing the efforts of the sheriff. Deputies are thankful you have their best interest in mind.

      • Hey Dreamer, yes the Sheriff is definitely in unchartered territory, but because he has no knowledge of the big picture with regards to the entire Emergency Management System, and becuse he has surrounded himself with others who have no knowledge, he is failing. It is not just the BOS that is upset, he is driving wedges between other County agencies. He can’t put his ego aside and just step back. Talk about creating mass confusion, how do you publickly announce no gun sales, then take it back, then take that back. This is not an elementary school playground.

        As far as being the quarterback, lets see in the last year this quarterback has lost the new MCJ Project, got subpoena power for the oversight committee and will most likely now be removed from the CEOC. That is just to name a few things. Yea he is getting his ass sacked by not just the BOS but now here comes the NRA. Oh and Yea I watched the Dr. Phil Show, what a straight embarrassment. For someone that touts his Doctrorate, he sounds like he has nothing more than a GED. Oh and one more thing, none of us liked buckles, so quit referring to him.

        • So Lil Dreamer basically waved the white flag when he has nothing to refute what I provided above. Time for Lil Alex to step aside and let the professionals take over.

  • Professional Tip Only:
    To ALADS Board of Directors, you MUST do better when making decisions concerning the members wants along with how THEIR money is spent politically.

    Most deputies would differ with you on many of your money spending expenditures, particularly politically.

    Look no further than the entire LASD family, past and present for the truth of the matter, more so of those who reside in Los Angeles County.

    • Ultimate deflection, get your head out of the sand and open your eyes. Ask tenured LEO’S, you can learn a thing or too.

      In the interim, work on YOUR spelling so YOU’RE not looked looked upon as slow.

      • Wowzer,

        Learn when to use apostrophes and capitalization. LEOs is not one of those cases. Using a comma to link to separate sentences is incorrect. Use either a period or a semi-colon. And finally, don’t confuse too for the numeric two.

  • What is the point of the link? To show that some news talking head, going for his “gotcha moment day in the sun”, doesn’t even know the correct terminology used to identify an individual in the LA County Sheriff’s academy? Or, is it to show that even though a pandemic is raging on, first responders, even in training, have to get up, go to work and keep on moving while jeopardizing their own health and that of their own families.

    If that’s your point, I SMH in agreement that medical personnel and first responders aren’t home with their families sitting out the virus.

  • HMM…. Interesting perspective you have there. Here’s another one to consider. Under the current failed leadership of Lieutenant sheriff Alejandro Villanueva, he and his hand picked “tenured” command staff are incapable of following the basic rules that all health professionals nationwide have been trying to drive home, for several weeks now, to maintain at least 6 feet from each other. You know, the justification that Lt. Alex tried to use for his unconstitutional shut down order of legal businesses that sell firearms in L.A. County.

    I guess this photo will be used as EXHIBIT 1 when they hand Lt. Alex his lunch in federal court.
    https://twitter.com/abc7robhayes/status/1242962045667966976?s=21

    • How do you suppose two law enforcement officers are supposed to accomplish the “recommended six feet distance” as prescribed by “health department experts” while riding in a car together, responding to a call…..just doing the routine things a police officer has to do in support of each other?

      Oh, it’s going to be really tough for fireman, having to live in such close quarters an all at the station and riding together on the engine or paramedic truck when responding to emergencies. Heck, ambulance crews…..what will they do?

      Get out of here with your nonsense.

      • Let me simplify it for you. It’s about how you manage the safety and well being of your potential newest members of the LASD while they are in the academy. You know, those young kids just starting out in seeking their professional careers while many of them still live at home with the parents and families. The ones who are not allowed to make any independent decisions unless directed or blessed by their D.I.’s.

        You sound as clueless as Lt. Alex and his entire executive team.

        • Speaking of clueless, you should spend more time learning what the training bureau is doing to accommodate social distancing while working with POST. Oh wait, you saw a post on social media, so that’s all you need to know, right?

  • LMFAO at you disgruntled rejects/cowards venting in your safe zone here, where no one else other than you 5 read or gives two shits about. While you bitch and complain, AV is running away with the highest percentage of public approval from the recent political poles taken during the primaries. But you’ll never admit to that because that will just kill all your stupid rhetoric.

    According to a campaign manager representing a political candidate, AV scored a 60%+ approval rating. He also has the support from all of his constituents and those that supported him from the onset. Here’s a little example of it in case you missed it. A strong message from the President of LACDP to the BOS.

    https://www.lacdp.org/updates

    Chew on this one for the next several terms. Finally, keep underestimating the man and he’ll keep shoving it up your arses.

    I’m sorry you’re no longer relevant and you stay up late every night re-reading your “Your services are no longer needed” letters. Hahahaha

    Go ahead and let me hear all your, “whaaaaa, whaaaaa, whaaaa, this isn’t true. It can’t be true! This is not possible. How can this be? You’re a AV supporter. I’m smarter than you. This is absurd. No way he can be doing a good job. We have to lie and manipulate the truth. I want my executive position back. I was promised the world for not doing any work. I use big words when I write. The truth can’t be true because it doesn’t fit our agenda. How is the public liking this bad bad man. Nothing we’re doing is working against him. Whaaaa whaaaa whaaaa. I’m going to stomp my feet now. ”

    Annnnd, go. Dying to read your nonsense now. This is as easy as having a crook walk himself in the back seat of a radio car and open the door himself.

    • Not calling you a liar, but please post the links to the polls you cite, the name of the campaign manager, which candidate etc. Spent some time on Google but dont see anything. Hard to separate fact from fiction on this site.

    • Say What?? Thanks for the link which basically says nothing except a feeble attempt to blame the motion to turn the county’s executive director of emergency management operations over to the capable hands of the CEO from the current disaster called Alex (I cried & sued to get promoted to lieutenant) Villanueva, on the lone Republican on the Board, Supv. Katherine Barger, when in fact, this motion was started by their fellow Democrat supervisors last year. Weak and wont mean a thing.

      The fact that Alex has reacted by throwing a public temper tantrum like an impulsive three year old child provides all of the justification that the BOS needs. Not to mention that this CEO led management model already exists and functions extremely well in many other counties.

      So lil Alex better get his pacifier cleaned off as he is about to be sent to his “time out” corner with a 5-0 vote. This is probably one of the first times Lil Alex can appropriately claim the title of “Five Oh!” Oh no, say it ain’t so.

      In these serious and troubled times, at least the BOS will be able to easily deliver some positive and good news as we move forward from, Alex’s ineptness and incompetence, to a professional and intelligent director of emergency management, for the residents of Los Angeles County.

      • Wow, your quite the intellectual giant. Would that be the CEO with zero experience or training in emergency management, a financial analyst named Sachi Hamai? So the board plan will add a layer of bureaucracy and they claim will cut red tape – this is hilarious!

        BTW, your hatred and rage over the fact Villanueva is Sheriff is duly noted. Please seek help.

        • Please add to your trusty old “duly noted” note pad that the help we are all seeking will take place today when the Board of Supervisors B*%ch Slap’s Lil Lying Alex off his ego thumping perch so he can focus on passing out soap to the inmates in his virus infected jail.

          Time to leave the big management decisions to the educated and competent professional adults!

          Oh no, say it ain’t so. Maybe you should have stuck with “Olmsted Instead?” What an absolute clown show.

          • Surprisingly ALADS can’t reel
            Villanueva back in, the worst part being no refund for the 1.3 million.

        • KD, since you’re COS for King of the County, is he going to take all his deputies and go home now that’s he’s been removed as head of EOC? I mean, being the only one concerned for everyones public safety, he did threaten to do just that and you know he fulfills his promises as he did with his campaign.

  • Former Sheriff was interviewed today.

    He spoke snd was on point about Covid 19 concerning 1st responders and their impact related to the job.

    Too bad he went soft on campaigning but chances are obviously much better next election.

  • Former Sheriff of Los Angeles County Jim McDonnell was interviewed yesterday.

    He spoke and was on point about Covid 19 concerning 1st responders and their impact related to the job.

    Too bad he went soft on campaigning but chances are obviously much better next election.

  • @ Say What?

    I’m most definitely not disgruntled. My point on the link was simple. Gun stores and gun possession are just as essential as recruits, but if your gonna make a point that they are not, then put the recruits on hold like other agencies.

    Secondly, I support 100 percent all first responders, they are most definitely essential and necessary. I would have no problem working in any of those aspects.

    Lastly, I agreed with some of his changes, but I also strongly disagree with some views. Nature of the beast I guess. He does come across as a person with a chip on his shoulder and loves to brag about his background. I guess I’m just more humble and was raised differently.

    • I must be missing something. Trump loves to brag about things, whereas I’ve never heard AV talk about himself or his education. His detractors seem obsessed for sure. Please share a link to make your case.

  • Well, the AV Clown show was in full effect this morning. Lt. Alex was competing for the Greatest Show on Earth title with his ill-informed live feed on Facebook. To be able to sit back and watch lil Alex get his arse handed to him while the Lady Supervisors took turns B*#ch Slapping him up and down and side to side, as they proceeded to hand down the predicted 5 – 0 unanimous “historic” decision to boot him out of his little CEOC Throne.

    Who ever convinced him to host his call and comments to the Board on Live Facebook, please keep up the great advice. You provided us with pure gold entertainment. Even Lil Dreamer wont be able to spin “Five-Oh Alex’s” performance on this one. Damn that was fun to watch!

  • Clown show tell me how it’s going to be in the next few weeks when the body bags start filling up, the ICU’s are crammed with patients on ventilators, and people dying because they can’t get one. Let me know how fun those ER waiting rooms are going to be, and the fact the BOS was responsible for the ability to respond to a pandemic.

    That’s going to be an interesting AAR, don’t you think? Can’t blame the sheriff for that one, eh? Have a good day.

    • Well now that they dont have to be side tracked by the Lil Clown’s temper tantrum, they can focus their efforts on working with the County Team of Department Heads. Nice doomsday threat but that only works with fools who don’t know any better.

      Everyone will learn that everything will remain intact at the County’s Emergency Operations Center. We just wont have to depend on the bumbling fool of a Sheriff trying to explain what he has no training on experience with. And that is Emergency Management. Heck, Alex couldn’t even manage a pursuit as a watch commander.

      All will be fine now! Bye Felicia

      • Clown show, when you try to make stuff up to see what sticks, you reveal your true hatred. Sheriff V at one point worked as a supervisor and instructor of ICS for the entire command and management staff of the department. He understands emergency management far more than most, including the BOS, the CEO, and appointed department heads. I know this may come as a disappointment to you, too bad. He also has a solid reputation for supporting good police work, something haters like you will never admit.

        • Great! He should have no problem then carrying out the directives from the new Director of the County’s Office of Emergency Management. Like always, I’m sure the smartest man in the room will be able to demonstrate his executive team building, teamwork and problem solving skills.

          I’m sure all CEOC workers will be as impressed with his performance based on what we have seen to date. Only problem and probably Lt. Alex’s biggest fear is that since they won’t be LASD personnel, they wont know that they are supposed to stroke his fragile ego by saying “yes boss” every time he makes an asinine recommendation.

          If his performance today is any indication, we will all be entertained every time a camera catches him in action. LMAO (I’m sure you know what that means). ;-0

    • @Keep Dreaming- I can agree with you on that one. BOS never take the blame for their mistakes. They always pin it on someone else. But unfortunately, I feel that something bad will happen in the future and the BOS will still blame the Sheriff.

      Gee, I hope the sheriff can have that day in court with the BOS soon. I have a feeling that he and his attorney are going to expose them with all the dirt they have on them.

    • Yo Bro, relax Bro. Seriously, all will be fine once you reach your bunker. Don’t worry, now that Lt. Alex doesn’t have to waste time pretending that he was running some sort of operation at the CEOC, he can now focus on dealing with ALADS‘ demands to take care of his adoring personnel. You know the ones who’s morale is so high, that they are willing to follow him anywhere. All will be okay.

      In Alex we Trust!

      • @Clown Show- After reading a bunch of your comments, I really feel that you have a personal vendetta against the sheriff. If that is the case, it’s best for you to forgive and forget. You holding onto those kind of feelings will drain you. Move on in life and dont worry so much. All of this will past if you let it.
        Take care and enjoy life. Tomorrow is never guaranteed.

        • Skippy, I’m glad you took the time to read them. I’m sorry they might have hurt your feelings or challenged your glowing admiration of the FORMER director of emergency operations.

          Please get back to holding Alex’s hand and keep that ice pack firmly against the back of his head as I’m sure Sheila Kuehl’s B@%ch Slaps this morning must have left a mark or two, or three, or four.

          Now, dust off that pacifier and take solace that I am totally enjoying The AV Clown Show as it’s has been the Greatest Show on Earth during these trouble times. Guaranteed 🙂

          • @Clown Show- Your comments didnt hurt my feelings at all. I just pitty you as a human being. Like I said before, your anger towards AV clearly shows that he has affected you someway in your life. You stand out as someone that did receive a “your services are no longer needed” letter. Your vile hatred for this man is far more potent than that of some concerned citizen. I get it. It must have sucked getting that letter.

            I dont agree with everything AV does, but on the other hand, he is better then that joke we had before. You of course will disagree obviously because the last clown we had for sheriff probably promised you the world.

            I’ve heard rumors that Jimbo the clown is considering running again. If he does decide to run again, i hope he takes some time and think about how he fucked so many things up before and tries to correct them if he wins in the future.

    • Leibrich, he has been IOD for the past week as he was following strict “stay at home” procedures because he is a man who LEADS from the rear by example. According to the SHAD-92, that he had his poor lieutenant “hostage” aide drive into the Hall of Justice to fill out for him, he was involved in an important tele-conference call, providing sage advice and strategy to Alex and the rest of the CEOC executive team on how to maintain control of Lil Alex’s throne in the face of an enemy “Coup d’etat” by those evil woman Supervisors.

      In true Timmy style, five minutes into the call he was overheard snoring. After repeated attempts to wake him by calling out his name, one of his doggies came in and began licking his ear. The startled Timmy quickly returned to consciousness but accidentally dropped his bowl of cheerios onto his foot causing a severe (6) blood drop laceration to his little toe. After letting out a few choice expletives over the phone while withering on the floor in pain, he was able to valiantly climb back into his sleeper lounge chair and regain his composure as he struggled with the life or death decision on whether to call 911 for those simple fire guys or go direct to ABD (aero bureau dispatch) and summons Air-5 for a videoed hoist rescue. Luckily for all, his radio battery was dead.

      After weighing all options, and considering his high risk health status vulnerability for contracting the severe form of the COVID-19 virus if he were to enter a hospital, he smartly found a bandaid and took the rest of the week off to speed up his recovery time. Unfortunately, without his on-scene hand holding guidance of Lil Alex, the enemy BOS Top-5 Swat Team violently overran the CEOC Bunker Room and evicted Lil Alex in a heart pounding, edge of your seat, televised fashion that will go down in Los Angeles County History as a day that will live in Infamy.

      I know most reading this are probably saying, oh geez, this guy and his April Fools Day jokes. But seriously folks, Tweets Don’t Lie! https://twitter.com/LASDMurakami/status/1242461161779412992

      Edited since the 1st post must have gotten lost in the moderation que.

    • A few years ago when he only had double bars on his collars, coming down the home stretch of a mediocre career. He was bent over holding his back in severe pain gearing up for that tax free medical exit……Fast forward and now miraculously AV anoints him U.S. and his back pain is no more……Hallelujah !!!! It’s a miracle even after gaining 75 pounds……

      • @Conquistador, Good Obs!

        I’m sure Sleepy Tim is quietly holding out to gain a few step raises at the undersheriff pay scale before that mysterious back pain re-emerges again. Then he’ll sit it out at home in his flip flops, oops, I mean “slippas” as he prefers to call them, for a year before cashing out with that tax-free disability. That is, unless Asst. Sheriff Gross gets impatient and pushes him out of HIS chair first?

  • @Skippy, seriously? Pity? Anger? Vile Hatred? Geeezz, get a grip man. You have to admit that watching the daily fumbling and bumbling antics of AV The Clown has been funnier and almost as interesting as watching The Tiger King.

    Now at least I didnt say or post something like, “I’m feeling sad and mad watching Alex on FB live. I’m sadden by the ignorant comments. I’m mad that the BOS are not held accountable to anyone. Barger couldn’t even mention him during roll call. The Lord will deal with the haters internal and external!”

    How pathetic is that to post? Although I have to admit, I’m glad Viv did because her posting has gone viral with behind the scenes sharing. What a pathetic self pity of victimization household that must be to live in.

    Skippy, the walls are crumbling down. Take cover while you still can. Oh yeah, and enjoy watching a Real Sheriff, Jim McDonnell, on KABC Ch 7 Eyewitness News as he provides a nice tutorial for bumbling Alex on how to speak intellectually and in a articulate fashion while providing expert and fact based information for all in the vast ABC viewership sphere. A hellava lot better than AV’s live Facebook broadcast.

    Viva La McDonnell!

    • It is indeed interesting that former Sheriff jim McDonnell is making frequent appearances on ABC-7 News as that station’s resident “Law Enforcement Expert”–that characterization comes from the station itself–rather than the current Sheriff A.V.

      Air time to get the public ready for another run in the next election?

      I wonder….

    • It’s bad enough watching Alex brawl with the Board of Supervisors but Ron Hernandez is not a referee or mediator.

      On behalf of my fellow constituents I have this to say to ALADS President, “Sit yo ass down” and mind your business!

    • @Clown Show-Well McDonnel probably gets on the news the same way he had good stories about him printed in the LA Times…he paid them. Funny how they label him a “law enforcement expert” knowing that he was a cancer to every agency he was in charge of.

      By the way, you are telling me to get a grip? Have you seen how much detail you put into your stories in this comment section? Talking about the BOS 3 women members bitch slapping the sheriff? I really think you need to get a grip and move on with your life.

      Yes AV was removed, we all know. But like I said before, which you never replied to, you most likely got that letter on your county email days before AV was sworn in. You have a personal vendetta against the guy. We get it. Now move on.

  • @ Clown Show, you are right on. I must say it was entertaining to watch the rambling, head shaking, finger fumbling and eye rolling.

  • So now, after yesterday’s beat down by the likes of Supervisor’s Barger, Kuehl, Hahn & Solis (MRT let the ladies give the beating), the petulant child Sheriff thinks now is the time to take on another very intelligent female county executive, Sachi Hamai. Yes, Sachi Hamai, the CEO! The lady who controls and smartly manages all of the monies for the entire County of Los Angeles.

    Is this some kind of April Fools Joke? No folks, Lt. Alejandro Villanueva believes the timing is perfect to publicly go after and attack the CEO regarding Coronavirus related leave time. But not quietly and professionally behind closed doors in a respectful manner. Nope, no sir. Not the smartest man in the room. No way, Jose!

    Lil Alex believes going public to try to embarrass the CEO into giving up what the current county codes, state and Federal laws do not currently allow, and outside of the unions bargaining process is the best way to go. Ignorant Alex believes he has the public’s love for our 1st Responders to rely on in his underhanded and unprofessional tactics.

    But wait, aren’t there many other front line hero’s out there dealing with this pandemic? Firefighters, Doctors, Nurses, truck drivers, grocery workers, etc…. You get the point. And what about all of the recently unemployed who are currently captive in their homes wondering how they are going to pay their rent, car notes, other bills and feed their families?

    Alex says, no worries: “I am the most respected leader of the largest Sheriff’s Department in the nation. The people have spoken when they elected me in the closest of margins when they harvested all of those crucial hidden ballots. They probably already forgot about my feelings on Sanctuary Policies and that pesky 2nd Amendment. They will back us all the way and my line deputies will lift me on their shoulders and cheer Viva Villanatti!!

    I know, you think I’m just making stuff up again. Don’t you? Be honest now…..

    Well, here it is: https://twitter.com/billfoxla/status/1245445479145410560

    Oops, but that CEO didnt blink. Did she just call out Lil Alex’s amateur move? Don’t worry all, I’m sure this won’t hurt the LASD in the long run.

    https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/CALACOUNTY/bulletins/2846d54

  • The once proud Organization in shambles…..walls are crumbling down from within. In Villanueva’s fit of anger and rage, he looked incoherent, disconnected, confused and muddled. He got schooled by County CEO.
    Sorry guys if you thought this ship was rudderless, it just hit the rocks yesterday.

  • JC, once again you nailed it concisely. Inept Alex seems to enjoy showing us why he is completely unfit to lead the honorable men and women of this great organization. He once again highlighted why he was repeatedly denied his demands for an executive aide assignment when he was a shift watch commander. Every executive back then knew he had zero administrative acumen for such a position and needed to simply try to work his way up the ladder by gaining necessary experience in operations at the unit level, first. Unfortunately, some of the partisan voters didn’t realize the extreme importance of executive experience necessary to hold the position of Sheriff and this is the “Hot Mess” we are left with.

    Lt. Villanueva, please ask one of your hand picked executives what an “A” letter is and how you can easily assign an employee to remain at home, “on-duty” and with full pay and benefits while they follow the quarantine mandates in hopes that they are not infected and are cleared to return to full duty. It’s really simple and even an operations sergeant can show you how it works.

    And Inept Alex, thanks again for showing the world that the BOS’ decision to replace you NOW with the CEO to manage the County’s response through the CEOC was the very important and wise decision.

    • Once again the Sheriff tries to embarrass the BOS and CEO. Once again he gets owned and looks utterly incompetent. A call to Pay and Leave, DHR or CEO Hamai could have resolved this in just a few minutes. Alex here’s a little advice you wont take: BEFORE you go to the press and make a fool out of yourself, have your facts straight. But I guess when you’re the smartest guy in the room…..

  • If you guys want to be taken seriously or even have any credibility, put your real names behind your comments. Other than that, no one will take you serious. If you’re retired like me, even better.

    I have two sons in the Department and both of them tell me how much they like their boss. So whatever nonsense you guys are spewing here, means absolutely nothing to me, because what i hear from the those in the front lines is completely opposite. The Sheriff in my eyes is doing a great job and isn’t afraid to lock horns with these filthy, lying politicians who as long as I can remember tried to take full control of LASD. Look how bad the probation department is. That’s what happens when politicians lead a law enforcement unit. Keep fighting these bastards Sheriff and stand your ground. Everyone I know agrees with me.

    • Craig, I wish nothing but the best for your sons and all of the men and women of the LASD.

      The problem is with the failed leadership of Alejandro Villanueva. If everyone around you thinks that Alex is doing a great job, I respectfully suggest you step outside of that current bubble and take a long hard unemotional look and assessment of the long term ramifications and professional reputation damage this inexperienced and narcissistic childlike guy is doing to a once great and respected organization.

    • Craig, are your sons proud of Villanueva’s latest plot to bring back his campaign bag man through the side door, or are you trying to stroke his fragile ego. If you continue promoting his ego he might just promote your sons.

  • Why is everyone complaining about Alex when he was touted as the cure to LASD woes?
    That is who you wanted and that’s who you got, backed and thanks to a hefty donation by ALADS.
    Let Alex do his job and if not satisfied then don’t reelect him. Until then, power down and do your job.

    • Based on what he has shown and done in only 16 months, AV is a guaranteed 1 termer. And his downfall started before he was even sworn in when he tried to get Creepy Carl reinstated by the prior administration. Luckily, prior execs with ethics and morals said no way Jose.

      Now AV tried to sneak Mandoyan in through the side door when he thought no one was looking. What went wrong Alex? I thought your court case to back your authority to reinstate Carl was a slam dunk?

      Right now Captain John McBride is panicked that someone under his authoritative command tipped of the media to AV’s latest plot to hit back his campaign bag man. Don’t worry McBride, since you filled all of those vacancies last year, there’s no way Alex would move you.

      But this is embarrassing: https://abc7.com/fired-la-county-sheriffs-deputy-mandoyan-attempting-again-to-return-to-lasd/6070358/

  • Hey Clown, we are tired of hearing from you. My guess is you are a disgruntled Captain that is out IOD. Your getting plenty from the County so just go away.

    • @10/3, show some respect. That’s Mr. AV Clown Show to you. I know it hurts to have so many point out the glaring inadequacies of your hero lieutenant who is trying so desperately to play sheriff, but someone needs to point out his corrupt b.s.

      I’m just trying to live up to and fulfill our Tradition of Service motto. Based on inept Alex’s history, i won’t be “going away” anytime soon. Enjoy the show.

      Your Welcome

  • Get a grip and you need a hobby. Even that old wacko CF has been quiet. Probably hold up somewhere in a bunker ….aka mom’s basement.

    You definitely are a retired, bitter ex McDonald leg-humper with a lot of extra time on their hands. Enjoy your golden years, let the bitterness go and do like most of the retired executives and double dip in the civil service trough and become a chief of police somewhere to satisfy your ego and make you feel important again.

    Get a life and stop obsessing on the current Sheriff.

    • @Jesh…. So based on all of the recent headline grabbing idiotic decisions by Egomaniacal Lt. Alejandro Villanueva, why should anyone ignore what he is doing to our beloved organization?

      I’ll make you and all of the rest of Lil Alex’s cheerleaders a deal. Convince the idiot in charge to stop embarrassing the LASD, locally, statewide and nationally, and I wont have anything negative to point out. But you and I (and the rest of AV’s ass kissers) know that is impossible.

      I promise you, I will stop once the Inept Alex stops!

      Deal?

  • Keep Dreaming (JB?), as someone very close to AV, you never responded to my question about the female deputy responsible for a 17 million dollar (so far) payout to the parents of two boys killed while she was on training at ELA. What, exactly, is her job in the Sheriff’s Office and why does she need a take-home Dodge Charger?

    Did you ever ask AV if he would post his “Mein Kampf” memo he wrote to Department executives as a lieutenant complaining about not being promoted, DESPITE his Latino-ness?

    Now, like herpes, Mandoyan is BACK and getting hired as a recruit! Was that orchestrated by AV or by Mandoyan’s attorney?

    Lastly, with ALL that’s happening now, and as AV continues his (embarrassing and losing) struggle with the Board of Supervisors and the CEO, I hear he’s taken another CRUCIAL step at improving the Department. He’s eliminating the “Legendary Lawman/woman” award…you know, the award given to very few people who’ve worked 10 or more years in patrol. It would seem that, for a guy who so highly values “doing hard time on the line,” this would be a contradiction. Could you ask him, or do you know, if it’s true and, if so, why? And why at THIS TIME?

    Ron Hernandez, do YOU know anything about this? Was ALADS consulted?

      • Keep Dreaming, please answer the question Apostle has been asking for over a month. Do not claim ignorance and deflect the question.

    • @LASD Apostle,
      Ironic that you called out ALADS Ronald Hernandez aka Station Detective Ron Hernandez.
      He’s still attempting to salvage that 1.3 million. LMAO!

    • @LASD Apostle

      Very interesting, I have a question.

      What happened to the $17 million dollar trust account that was basically stolen from a Montebello couple by the East LA Bandidos a few months ago??

      Ron Hernandez
      and the ALADS should know that by now.

  • “AV is a guaranteed one termer.” Hmmm, coming from the same camp who said McDonnell was a slam dunk. How did that work out? Speaking of embarrassing decisions, any comment on the BOS spending $400K on two PR firms in the middle of a pandemic? Was that to ensure they are cast in the best light possible? LOL, that’s going over real well while people are struggling to survive.

    Clown Show, stop pretending you’ve ever loved the LASD. You only loved what the organization did to your ego and pocketbook, and you didn’t give a rat’s ass when McDonnell was busy destroying it. Singing his praises now is pretty funny, since all the poorly buried bodies are coming to light. They have a far different take on McIdiot than you do.

    • Lil Dreamer, you are getting old and tired. Lieutenant Alex has left you nothing to fight with or for. You should have just stuck with “Olmsted Instead.” (For those who forget, here’s a little reminder clip: https://youtu.be/giwDlxVX3fw )
      Hey Dreamer, do you still keep in touch with good ole Bob, or did you cast him aside to attach yourself firmly to Alex’s backside?

      Oh, by the way, what did Alex do with his trusted mentor Bob Olmsted? Hum, I guess Lil Alex didnt like the advice Bob O. was giving him so he was also unceremoniously shown the exit door. For all of you Villanueva loyalist, take a long hard look at what that loyalty truly means to Lil Alex.

      Roll Call:
      Ray Leyva?
      Bob Olmsted?
      Maria Gutierrez?
      Larry DelMese?
      Eli Vera?
      Sandy Crosthwait?

      Anyone?

      • @ The AV Clown Show…..The roll call list is spot on and filled with good people. AV could give a rat’s ass about LASD. His entire career he was the nerd, outcast, whiner & always pulling the “victim” card at every stop. He & the first lady are on a worldwide reckoning tour and have a long list of all who have perceivably “done them wrong.” Enjoy the five minutes of fame & get all your vindictive assassinations done in time because time is running out.

          • AV Clown Show. The best part about that video, is a 6 year old comment. If only the public saw King Villanueva for the creepy guy we all know him as.

            Bob couldn’t run MCJ, how is he going to run the largest sheriff’s dept in the country? Picking Villanueva to speak on your behalf shows poor judgement. Villanueva is a chauvinist and has a horrible reputation as a supervisor. It wouldn’t surprise anyone if a sexual harassment case pops up in the future. He was investigated for calling an African American employee a “knuckle dragger and told a female that she was needed to get on a diet. Bob, maybe you should do a background on your team members.

  • The Clown, is sitting home IOD, and scared not to step outside because he is being watched and he knows it, so he has become a little keyboard bully. His entire career he tried to bully people, and people would just mock him. He was not one of Buckles favorite people, as Buckles new he made a mistake with him. I am no fan of what the Sheriff is doing, but I don’t come on here and cry the blues. Clown, go back to your next Netflix show and just retire already.

    • @10-3, you and Lil Dreamer putting out the assistance request for Alex’s ego going “man down” is hilarious. You probably need to change your WLA call sign to “10-33” because you are apparently pleading for me to stop. Did you forget what a REAL Lieutenant taught us back in the day? Lt. Mike McAndrews demanded that you never give up! You fight until the end!

      I think I’ll follow Lt. McAndrews’ mantra. You go ahead and stick with that embarrassment of a lieutenant Alejandro Villanueva. He needs the likes of you and Lil Dreamer to keep stroking that fragile ego of his.

    • @ 10/3, how’s that leg humping going. Do you really think AV would watch your back when you go through that door. I would not trust AV to have mine. The problem is no one trusted him to watch their back. Name me one person who would trust AV to watch their back.
      It’s all about TRUST.

  • KD: You are the king of deflection. Since you are obviously an insider you receive many questions from the rest of us. Why wont you answer any of them? For many months now, you have been claiming, in one statement or another, “the buried bodies are coming to light”. Its been 16 months; where are they? Where are the 200-400 deputies the Sheriff said were coming back? Where are the cases against Huntsman, Teran, Tyler, the County Supervisors and all the executives that were “fired” for corruption? Was the “public corruption unit” able to make the cases or not? Constant fighting with the BOS may look good to the new guys but those of us who have been around see the position of Sheriff being weakened by the day. Civilian oversight with subpoena power, removal from CEOC leadership, budget monies being sequestered and doled out like a kids allowance. Check the election results for each Supervisor. They are not going anywhere and with Wesson coming in the MRT philosophy continues. If this continues it could very well be the office of the L.A County Sheriff becomes an appointed position. Its already being discussed at the county and state level. Wouldn’t it be ironic if it was AV and not McDonnell that turned the LASD into the LAPD?

  • Hey Clown, or should I say Little Eddie Munster, Lt McAndrews was a real Lt. you were nothing but an imposter hiding behind the skirt of a certain Commander, who was actually a pretty good guy. Although I too believe he is a one time Sheriff, He is still the Sheriff and all you are is a disgraced crybaby that even Tanaka tossed out of the car. Mr. propaganda no need for me to leg hump as I wont even take a test, I’m good right where I am. I just hate listening to all the disgruntled folks. If you can’t make a difference where you are at, then step aside and let somebody else do it for you.

    • @ 10/3, you have not named a single person at LASD who TRUSTS Villanueva to have their back when they go through that door. The guy somehow manages to keep stooping lower and lower everyday. Prove me wrong.

  • 10/3 says: “I wont even take a test, I’m good right where I am. I just hate listening to all the disgruntled folks.”

    The ultimate statement of mediocrity and complacency. Part of the reason our beloved LASD is now sinking so fast under the current failed leadership!

  • @prop, first of all let me get this straight I am no fan of what AV has been doing. I did not like who he brought in, I do not like who (at least the Tanaka folks or just the plain incompetent ones) he has promoted. But, he has taken the handcuffs off those in the field and in line positions. Lt’s/Sgt’s/Deps are not afraid of doing the lords work any longer. So, I would say those are the ones that trust him to have their backs. And he does. Say what you want about the Kobe incident, but the Sheriff was truly trying to do the right thing by the Deps. Buckles and people like the clown would have nutted up and began relieving people. A firm grip should never be considered a use of force where people get demoted and fired over. Thats what was going on in the past, but no longer. Its just unfortunate that AV’s inner circle can’t advise him correctly . That and he wont listen to ANYBODY. Besides Carl.

  • 10/3, First off AV has poor impulse control, and an itchy media finger to make a fool out of himself. And, why take advise from CM. AV will go down in history as the Sheriff kept trying to re-hire creepy Carl. He is like the herpes … which keeps coming back to the LASD. I bet somewhere deep inside your soul you feel a twinge from time to time that his command staff has lost confidence in him to lead. He has opened the floodgates of bullshit, and laughably bad excuses, which are inexcusable for a once proud Department.

    • I find it highly unusual that Carl Mandoyan attempted to come through the back door as a Deputy Sheriff Trainee.

      Questions remain as who allowed this to happen and why? What did Mandoyan do to merit Villanueva’s favor?

      Even the Sheriff can’t be both the Judge and the jury for Carl. Taxpayers be damned!

      I truly believe that many actions within LASD by Alex is reminiscent of “How do you like me now” & “Who’s your Daddy” to those who oppose him. In the end the response will be “Who’s crying now”…

      • Knowing CM could never pass backgrounds normally, you have to wonder what was the deal? Was it just to get CM on the eligibility list so that the Department could push him through the hiring process? Was Personnel going to do a “FOS” background and decide all of Mandoyan’s issues were unfounded? For justification, they could point to the Department’s own “report” that decided there was a lack of due process? If so, when Mandoyan goes to court he could say, “See your honor, I passed backgrounds and I’m eligible to be hired.” Interestingly, the Director of DHR acted rather quickly ordering the Sheriff to take CM off the eligible list. I agree that you have to wonder why the Sheriff fights so hard for Mandoyan yet apparently is doing nothing for the 400 deputies (his words) who might actually have a case against the Department.

  • @skippy,
    Details? You don’t like details? We don’t need no stinking DETAILS! Please don’t provide details while you hammer my hero idiot sheriff.

    I’m sorry Skippy. Which details bothered you the most? Was it this one? (“I’m feeling sad and mad watching Alex on FB live. I’m sadden by the ignorant comments. I’m mad that the BOS are not held accountable to anyone. Barger couldn’t even mention him during roll call. The Lord will deal with the haters internal and external!”

    How pathetic is that to post? Although I have to admit, I’m glad Viv did because her posting has gone viral with behind the scenes sharing. What a pathetic self pity of victimization household that must be to live in.)

    Did that little detail hurt your feelings or embarrass your Car-1 stable household image? So tell me, what do you think about the Psychology of the household leadership that is guiding our beloved LASD into the rocks?

  • Where is A.V. handler, Ron Hernandez?

    It appears that Ron’s handler is doing a great job. Atta Boy ALADS!

    • I’m guessing ALADS is beginning to slowly distance themselves from the Sheriff. They recently took a shot at his administration for a lack of COVID equipment. The current contract expires in January so negotiations are not that far off. With the constant battles between the Sheriff and BOS, the conditions are not great for productive negotiations. We have worked without a contract in the past. It could happen again if the BOS decides they will drag their feet and wait for the next election and potentially negotiate with a new administration. ALADS should be concerned.

  • Is it true? Lil Alex’s favorite T.V. fantasy autobiography show on FOX 11, “Deputy” just got cancelled after one “term”, oops, I mean season (@cognistator – that would be a Freudian slip). The very show that Lil Alex blessed for production only if the his favorite actor, Stephen Dorff, agreed to wear his circle of stars on his collar as homage to his Alex’s unique “I want to be different” ego. It has been said that Lt. Alex even wrote the part of the script for an early episode to ensure that his anti-ICE sanctuary sheriff policy was prominently highlighted.

    Lil Alex was even quoted during a news interview when he offered his critique of the show when he felt it was a realistic depiction of the LASD, just a little faster. Well Alex, if this disaster of a cop show was realistic to you, pack your moving boxes now because your term in office should be coming to the same lackluster and embarrassing finale.

    CANCELLED!

    • @ Clown Show, it definitely will happen in June of 2021 if not sooner. He will not get past the primaries. He will go down as the only Sheriff of LA County who got canned in the primaries fir his incompetence. He is tone deaf and does not realize his approval ratings are somewhere above genital warts, and below every other Sheriff in modern LA County history.

  • So under the Alex administration, his son is hired. His delayed employment wasn’t cause he wasn’t of age yet, just saying. Just wonder why he wasn’t hired before.

    Secondly, Murakami son-in-law gets hired. Supposedly he worked law enforcement in Hawaii and may have had some questionable stuff in his backgrounds, but nonetheless he’s hired and on. Why wasn’t he hired before.

    Lastly, currently there is a older Hispanic female CA in the academy. From what I’ve heard they don’t know how she met any physical standards, but of course is has also been said she’s very close friend with Viv. Why couldn’t she get hired before.

    That looks, sounds, and smells like cronyism!

    Final thoughts, recently the sheriff mentioned wanting deputies with patrol line time, no more one year wonders for desirable positions and promotions, Interesting proposition. id like to know what qualifies that female east la trainee that took out a family in a Accident to join the office of the sheriff, with a take home car.

  • Editor’s Note:

    Dear “Tips” and Tips 2.0,”

    If you have a problem with someone in LASD upper management, fine. But trashing their kids and/or family is not fine.

    Tips, I deleted your comment for a reason. And yet you merrily put it back up. (You’ll find that it’s gone again.)

    Tips 2.0, you acknowledged that trashing family was not okay, then proceeded to up the ante in your (now deleted) comment and trash still more kids of members of the department.

    Please don’t attack family members.

    Thank you both in advance for your cooperation.

    C.

  • So I just read somewhere on Facebook this morning that The AV Clown Show was in full incompetent operational mode yesterday when none other than Inept Alex sent out a directive to all unit commanders to illegally ask department personnel to self report their COVID-19 at-risk health factors to their supervisors which would be in complete violation of Federal HIPAA privacy laws. Yes folks, the Neo-Prog Sheriff wants all of you to report if you smoke or vape, if you like to drink a little too much and might have damaged your liver a bit, maybe enjoyed a few too many donuts during court recesses and now might be a little diabetic, etc…

    Of course several of the prior regime experienced and educated leftover command staff, who have been summarily passed over for promotional considerations by the Idiot in charge, knew that this was one land mine laden illegal directive that they would follow alerted Lil Alex’s lieutenant to chief cronies to that fact. Alex’s crack senior executive team, now dumbfounded on what to do, hastily called all hands on deck Saturday conference calls to seek guidance. Right out of a scene from Austin Powers, Dr. Evil Alex was observed on the Zoom video chat sitting in his home office command chair, cradling his hairless cat (Chief of Staff John “Mr. Bigglesworth” Burcher) as he asked his Number 2 (Murakami, not Viv) for suggestions. And just like that, the decisive order was rescinded and replaced with another decisive order which basically stated: Never mind captains. Just do what you think is okay. Whatever you decide will be fine by me. Unless you screw up and it has negative blowback on my image, then you will be demoted and/or transferred.

    Gee, I wonder how many unit commanders didn’t get the word in time and actually gleefully jumped on that original land mine directive?
    And what happened to those employees who followed their Supreme Leader’s illegal orders and surrendered their private medical information?
    Where they sent home? I wonder how many were sent home?

    Lastly, was this just another attempt by Dr. Alex Evil and his hairless confidant cat Bigglesworth Burcher to figure out a way to challenge the CEO and the Board of Sups AGAIN with a manufactured staffing crisis emergency funding request? What could go wrong?

  • Two Riverside sheriff’s deputies died over the last few days because of COVID-19. How dare the sheriff try to prevent exposure to those with preexisting conditions, the insolence of him! Well, at least they will die peacefully according to Clown Show because their HIPAA privacy laws were honored. You can’t make this stuff up.

    So we have a dedicated group of haters, still smarting over the fact they are no longer in charge, complaining about the guy who is in charge. Sheriff Villanueva (I know it pains you to see that in print) is doing exactly what he was elected to do, lead the LASD. Crime down 6% countywide over the last two weeks, 1 positive COVID-19 case in the nation’s largest jail system, amazing.

    Battling a board of supervisors bent on expanding their power while encroaching on the sheriff’s, his administration continues to deliver record recruitment and hiring, dismantling the dual track system, creating a first in the nation transparency project, all while handling a once in a lifetime pandemic crisis. There is no playbook for this, so all you armchair quarterbacks are left with sniveling and sniping from anonymity. It’s OK, thank GOD he’s in charge and not you cowards.

    • Keep Dreaming (JB), you are the prince of deflection. You are AV’s loyal bullshit machine, held dear in the hearts of Car 1 family. You deflect attention from AV’s utter failures, blunders and spectrum of pathologies, all the while thinking it is some clever strategy to hype the COVID- 19 deaths to secure more funding from the BOS. Fool someone else with your fear mongering. How about all the front line health care workers throughout the Country who have succumbed while putting their lives on the line.
      Hey BTW, your boss knew very well Mandoyan could never pass backgrounds, so why was he put on the eligibility list for hire on the Department. Oh, wait… you never responded to @ APOSTLE about the female deputy responsible for a 17 million dollar (so far) payout to the parents of two boys killed while she was on training at ELA. What, exactly, is her job in the Sheriff’s Office and why does she need a take-home Dodge Charger? ( Fear V ?)

  • How utterly pathetic of lil Alex’s lead social warrior cheerleader to invoke the line of duty deaths of two Heroes from Riverside County in a feeble effort to defend and divert attention from the utter failure to provide sound crisis leadership by Lt. Alejandro Villanueva and his uninformed and lost team of unqualified executive cronies.

    Embarrassingly Heartless and Shameless Lil Dreamer!

  • Clown Show, I think you rubbed Mr. Bigglesworth’s fur…uh…skin, the wrong way. He came at you in his response like a wild cat, with teeth bared and claws out!

    I was amazed yesterday when the order came out to identify employees who might be high risk and ask them if they suffered from a list of conditions which, by the way, would eliminate most Department employees from continuing to actually go to work.

    Another ill-conceived, ill-advised and poorly executed endeavor which even most sergeants would know wasn’t a good idea.

    As for Mr. Bigglesworth, aka Keep Dreaming, he won’t talk about the female deputy working in the Sheriff’s Office who cost taxpayers 17 million (not to mention two boy’s lives) and now has a take home Charger.

    He won’t post AV’s manifesto because he KNOWS how embarrassing it is. He also won’t address AV eliminating the “Legendary Lawman/Woman” award for WHO KNOWS WHY in the middle of a world-wide crisis.

    And, of course, he definitely won’t talk about trying to sneak Carl “the Blister” Mandoyan back into the Department. I’d love to know WHO came up with THAT idea.

    • Speaking of dumbasses your name came up. Where did you hear that the Legendary Lawman/Woman award was eliminated? He created something in addition to that, the Senior Lawman Award, that goes to the most senior sworn member of the department. The horrors!

  • Clown Show, you mentioned the circle of stars on AV’s collar. Funny, every time I see him and those stars, I can’t get the image of a dog chasing it’s tale out of my mind. Sure seems to fit the guy.

  • Thank you, Keep Dreaming, for clearing that up, really. Now, can you address my other questions?

    The Deputy in the Sheriff’s Office….what is her role and can you confirm she has a take-home car?

    Could you possibly post AV’s memo he wrote to the Department’s execs as a lieutenant?

    Did AV know about Mandoyan trying to get re-hired as a recruit? Did he arrange it?

    If you are who I think you are, you could easily take care of these other rumors.

  • @LASD Apostle, good luck with getting any of those alarming and controversial questions answered about Lt. Villanatti’s corrupt actions from Lil Dreamer. He is Alex’s official Ri Chun-hee, the infamous North Korean broadcaster of propaganda and disinformation. Lil Dreamer will only spin and sling out Alex’s bullshit and lies like a K-10 5150 gassing the honest hard working deputies, CA’s and nursing staff.

    When it comes to questions like the ones you have been asking above, over and over again, Lil Dreamer will suddenly go into COVID-19 mode and practice his “social distancing” from providing the TRUTH.

  • Lol..

    Love how some clown hiding behind an alias is demanding answers. LMFAO. You guys really live in your own fantasy world. You need to get out more and stop concerning yourselves with LASD business. I know you’re upset that you can’t play on the 8th floor anymore and that just chaps your hides.

    Dude, people know who you are. Just stop while you guys are ahead.

    Anytime i see you guys’ post, this is what I think of.

    https://youtu.be/0xRrUVVKigk

  • @Apostle

    You sound like my wife… Lol

    “Tell me now, did you look at her ass?”
    “Tell me now, why are you working all this overtime all of a sudden?”
    “Tell me now, did you know she was going to work the same shift with you?”
    “Tell me now, why is she now texting you?”

    Do you realize how pathetic you guys sound? Look, we know who you are. Watching you dorks carry on is not entertaining anymore.

    This is all we hear when you relegated haters chime in.

    https://youtu.be/0xRrUVVKigk

  • Crazy stuff you all having going on here. I’ve been gone from the job quite awhile but I know one thing… anyone feeling secure enough and being secure enough carrying the boss’ water calling people names while criticizing others about hiding behind aliases him/herself on this blog or whatever the hell it is, is engaged in a hypocritical and cowardly act. There seems to be many of you here.
    Defending the boss, hence the organization, ought to make you “safe” enough to state who you are.
    I’m not name calling just offering some hopefully constructive criticism.

  • @Anthony

    Well, since you’re gone like the rest of these tough guys claim to be, then you wouldn’t have a problem posting your name behind your post. In my days, when you opened your mouth and talked shit to someone, you were man enough to do it to their face or put your real name on anything you posted. Don’t come in here like you just happened to see an old post that’s almost off the home page. You’re one of the 4 clowns chiming in under different aliases. EAD!

    • Aren’t you the one tuned up by Celeste for trying to post about people’s children? Yeah, you’re the beacon of righteousness. You better go, I think the Dear Leader needs his car washed.

      • Don’t let me unleash the truth about you clowns. We know who you are and will expose you. Remember, your own buddies snitched on you. Govern yourself accordingly clown boy. I’m dying to put you guys on blast. Just waiting for the right opportunity.

    • Wow! You might be needing some help there young man. You obviously ain’t learned much about respecting your elders nor making civil disagreement related discussions.
      I’ll leave you to your hate filled inner demons and wish you the best at making long term and loyal friends. I’m sure me, or anyone else, trying to give you advice on how to get through your career and enjoying retirement ain’t gonna be too well received either.
      Oh by the way, your investigative skills are lacking. I retired at the rank of sergeant. Don’t have any idea who the four guys(those inner demons maybe) living in your head are.
      I ain’t defending anybody. Just calling it as I see it. Helps for those who try it sometimes.

      • @Anthony

        FU! You like to jump in and get your kicks in, then when someone stands up to you one on one, you do what the rest of you clowns do and that’s retreat, deflect, point fingers and make excuses. Trust me, we very well know who you guys are. We’ll see how you are in person.

  • @Anthony

    You talk about feeling secure? A good amount of shit talking here isn’t just about the boss. They talk shit about others as well. I sincerely doubt anyone of these hard chargers have said anything to the people they talk shit about to their faces. You know why? Because they’re the real cowards. So a coward coming here defending cowards is an oxymoron. GTFOH!

  • Riddle me this, who got that piece of shit Joaquin Herran out of his hospital bed and made him relevant? Ray and Brian, you idiots should be ashamed of yourself. Now this moron is all over this board? Geeeeze, Joaquin is a fucking idiot and a back stabbing wannabe latino, only when it was convenient and profitable for him. That piece of shit burned more Deputies than anyone i know.

    I was just advised he’s here chiming in and is a regular. How many more senior citizens are you going to dig up from the hospice and put a keyboard in front of them. You guys keep losing even more credibility.

        • Two sides to every story–you should’ve learned that when trained to deal with 415F’s–so

          We’re still on the trail.

          • Oh, ok cool guy. Anyone that has to make a cop reference tells me they never really were one. There’s really 3 sides to every story, idiot. Do us all a favor and don’t make any more cop references. Weirdo.

          • Tips 2.0

            “There’s really 3 sides to every story….”

            From “Patrol Procedure” by George T. Payton, p.291

            “An officer should remember that there are at least two sides to each story, and…not to jump to conclusions until he has heard the other person’s side….”

            Payton’s book was the basic text-book used when I went through the LASD Academy a good many decades ago & was also the P.O.S.T. text-book in most if not all Academies throughout California.

            Point: more than one side to a story.

            And your side is fucked up.

        • @ Tips 2.0, you should know about the female deputy responsible for a 17 million dollar (so far) payout to the parents of two boys killed while she was on training at ELA. What, exactly, is her job in the Sheriff’s Office and why does she need a take-home Dodge Charger?

          • @Rak

            Once again, you don’t make sense trying to sound smart. Go back to Google. You’re annoying already.

  • @Propaganda

    Brother, who cares. Seriously. Is that something you’re losing sleep over? Who cares, I sure as hell don’t and neither should you. With that girl there, are you losing money? Are your day to day functions impacted? Dude, worry about shit that really impacts you. You guys sound like a bunch of gossipy women. Enough already with your bitching and moaning. My 15 year old daughter doesn’t complain nearly as much as you grow ass men do. Get a life, find a hobby, read a book, go spend time with your loved ones. Just do something else instead of worrying about who was promoted, who’s got a take home car, etc….. Does that make any sense to you guys? I hope it does. None of this will matter to anyone when you’re laying in your hospital bed. Stop wasting your energy. Fuuuuuuck, it’s like talking to children.

    • Tips 2.0, how about AV trying to re-hire creepy Carl through the side door. Do you not care, or do you look the other way on this bonehead decision too.

      • @Propaganda

        No, I don’t care. Mandoyan deserves his job back plus much more. That kid got hosed and became a victim of circumstance. We all hope he gets his job and his life back. I read the report on him. Not one executive was going to fire him. Facts should matter.

        So yes, I want to see Mandoyan back. Again, why do you care either way. Who cares? How will your life be impacted either way?

        What would you do if you were in his shoes. I know the answer to that question. You’d do what he’s doing.

        BTW, I bet you all my cars and bikes that you won’t have the manhood to call Carl names to his face. I can confidently put my money where my mouth is on that one.

        The saddest thing of all this is, you’re probably someone he calls a friend.

        • I’d tell him to his face. Cause my first comment would be, WTF were you thinking. She ( I know who She is) is most definitely not worth it. Dumb!

          Usually it’s the smaller dumbest mistake we pay the most for.

          Just saying

        • @ Tips 2.0, trying to re-hire Mandoyan is the true definition of insanity. Keep trying to do the same thing over and over again expecting different results. The Courts already decided for him, and no matter what AV wants, it will be stopped by the Courts, the County CEO and the BOS. I can assure you one thing for sure. If McDonnell comes back he will clean house.

          • Carl will be back. Trust me. If he’s not already back. There’s absolutely no reason how he can’t be back. He didn’t do anything. Just because you’re scared of him isn’t a good enough reason. Changing your alias and waiting a day before Celeste approves doesn’t add to your list of idiots, just makes you more of a loser.

  • I was just informed that many of the readers checking in to catch up on the latest Villanueva follies might not be familiar with the Ri Chun-hee, whom I mentioned above. So I’ve taken to liberty to provide an informative link: https://womenintheworld.com/2016/01/06/famed-n-korean-newscaster-comes-out-of-retirement-to-anchor-story-on-purported-h-bomb-detonation/

    Also, here is a link of The Crew from back in the day. You will notice the resemblance: https://youtu.be/giwDlxVX3fw

    • @Clown

      At least my link sums you and your buddies up accordingly.

      You’re reaching and trying to remain relevant.

      Shew, and go away now.

  • Well, it appears that Lieutenant Alex unleashed Tips 2.0 today to make as many emotionally useless posts as possible to bury the unflattering posts with legitimate corruption exposing questions. Don’t worry, most readers know how to scroll back up and take in all of the Villanueva mismanagement examples that are being revealed on a daily basis.

    Thank you Tips 2.0 for representing Team Villanueva so well.

  • @TIPs 2.0

    You talk about getting a life yet your here. I’m not losing sleep nor is it affecting my work, but just because it doesn’t, don’t mean I can’t have an opinion.

    Seems to me a weak deputy who happened to be involved in an accident that killed people shouldn’t be in whatever position she holds.

    Period, that’s all. I’m still working and promoting, doing the lords work!

    I just want the right people In the right places.

    • @3.0

      Who cares brother. Seriously. If you’re still in the department, have your partners back and let’s tighten our bond and back our Sheriff. He’s constantly fighting for us and wants to do good.

      It’s pathetic when the haters who got kicked out are bitching, when these clowns spent their career burning deputies. Just look at their comments bro, do you think these heathens would have your back when the chips are down? Fuck no, you also know the answer to that question.

      These are turds that worked for McStupid closely and ones that kissed his ass. The ones that are talking shit from within, are the ones who had their opportunity to be loyal and do the right thing, but they let the power get to their head and all got the boot. Everyone else, loves the man and will go to war with him. The relegated ones are gonna run around crying like they’re doing now. It’s no secret that we know who they are. Their own friends snitch them off. They all talk like typical crooks.

      • @tips 2.0

        I could agree with you on that. I will always have your back and/or my brothers/sisters. My thoughts will never change that.

        I never liked McD and still don’t. He was the worse kind of snake. I’m most definitely not on his loyalist bandwagon and have no desire to wish him back.

        Lastly, I do love doing the lords work and what I believe our department stands for, but there are some ideologies that I have experienced and heard from Alex that are out of touch and will only cause us further damage. Stuff that would change the future for all us and most importantly the new generation! I agree Alex does support proactive policing but if he instills some of his ideologies, there won’t be anyone to do it in the future regardless of support.

        I want our badge to always shine in more ways then one.

        I will never stop holding the line!

        • @3.0

          I think communication is key brother. AV has an open door policy and is one of the most approachable people I know. His Chief of Staff and Aide are also good guys, unlike the previous. His old group wouldn’t even let chiefs speak to AV. There’s a lot that AV doesn’t know about and it’s incumbent upon us to relay it to him. I have all the confidence in the man that he will listen and do what he can to fix things. He genuinely wants to do good.

          • @2.0

            For starters it just seems like for whatever reasons the standards for hiring are confusing. No more treadmill or body fat. One ideology expressed was that academy is not a “de-selector,” well then who is. If HR standards are what they are and backgrounds is being “pushed” to hire then how are we being genuine in our hiring practices.

            Minimizing the stress factor of the academy to me is a double edged sword. I understand teaching and being able to turn and not so great candidate into a deputy, but we all know they are some cats that just don’t belong.

            Trying to push that mentality of low stress in academy and field training seems risky to me. Which something he has expressed. FTO are not “ de-selectors.” Well then who is? Our out dated training program on paper. How do we know who is gonna have fight or flight without stress?

            It seems broad, but if he supports the troop we need t replenish them with people we trust!

    C.

    • Thanks Celeste for the explanation. Not sure how that one broke the rules but I have no problem letting it slide.

      I’m just curious, based on your numerous past articles on the previous LASD Sheriff’s Baca, Scott and McDonnell, why are you taking such a hands off or muted approach of covering the numerous jaw dropping exploits of Sheriff Villanueva? Seems unusual?

  • Hey Lil Dreamer, your were touting Lt. Alex for a meager 6% crime drop as some sort of noteworthy leadership feat. Meanwhile, all of Los Angeles just watched a real Law Enforcement executive note a 26% drop in crime within his vast jurisdiction.

    So basically, Lt. Villanueva is failing and falling short once again. Come on now, how hard can it be to realize a significant percentage drop in crime when EVERYONE is basically at home. With property crimes always leading the pack numerically, even the “Villans” know better than to chance an encounter with an armed resident, despite Alex’s flip flopping (sorry Murakami) unconstitutional efforts to prevent law abiding citizens from purchasing such protection devices.

    It was good to see Chief Moore in Prime Time along with law enforcement expert Sheriff Jim McDonnell on channel 7 today as they both provide intelligence based information to the public in an articulate and professional manner.

    • @Clown Show- I asked you a question on one of your previous posts. The one about roll call. What happened with Vera? I really like Vera.

      • He has been MIA for awhile now. Maybe ask Lt. Villanueva or his hairless social media monitor Mr. Bigglesworth Burcher.

        I remember one of Lt. Villanueva’s campaign claims that once he is in office, morale will be so high, that all IOD folks will be hopping back to work on one leg because they will love working for him so much.

        What a joke. As we could all predict under Alex’s failed leadership and blatant cronyism, the exact opposite has occurred. Since his time in office, IOD’s have increased and retirements hit record highs this past March.

        • @Clown boy

          The retirements are the long awaited ones from those people like you who had no business being in the positions they are now. Their gravy train and all the promises made to them came to a screeching stop. So, yes, those retirements are welcomed and most likely part of AV’s master plan to Reform, Rebuild and Restore. I don’t know what you’re smoking, but IOD’s have been the lowest the department has in decades. Good try with your ill advised fake news. It’s hard for you to get accurate information from the couch of your home. Try again partner.

          • Really now? If you are so in the know as you want to claim, then why don’t you tell us what happened to Chief’s Eli Vera and Larry DelMese? You know, some of the captains that Lt. Alex so wisely selected to lead his administration when he promoted them and others from captains to chiefs.

  • Lol… You forgot to mention that they abruptly cut the interview off within seconds of that incoherent dumbass McStupid because of the mayor’s press conference. Also, my contact at ABC tells me that every time Mcdummy speaks, their desk is bombarded with calls from the public and deputies telling them to take that idiot off.

    Typical LAPD to fudge the numbers, just like your old boss Mcdummy did and got caught.

    GTFOH groupie.

  • On Saturday, AV sent out a message asking Department personnel to consider letting their supervisors know if they had a medical condition which would place them in a high-risk category for Covid-19. He either sent it without consulting anyone OR he consulted incompetent staff, because he had to re-send the message with a “Voluntary only” qualification added in red at the bottom of the first non-HIPAA compliant message.

    He also sent a grammatically flawed message (doesn’t he have an entire STAFF to check what he releases?) to the Department on Friday regarding the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act. What he refers to as his “in-depth research” on the topic, was actually CEO Sachi Hamai publicly schooling him in a letter:

    “It’s unfortunate that the Sheriff continues to bring issues to the media with the sole purpose of picking a political fight rather than joining the County family in our urgent shared mission, which is the COVID-19 crisis. The Sheriff should know since the guidelines were sent out last week, that new federal benefits for employees affected by COVID-19 took effect beginning today.

    The guidelines for these programs are set by the federal government, not by the County. The Sheriff is responsible for his own decisions if he ordered employees to be placed on home leave. As a department head, he should be well aware that employees he orders to stay at home should be placed on paid administrative leave. If the Sheriff has any other concerns he should be working with the County’s Department of Human Resources to address any individual employees’ situations and needs instead of going to the media with misleading information.”

  • Clown Show, Apostle, Rim Job, and whoever else was busy throwing rocks at the sheriff while he does his job, my apologies for not getting back sooner. It’s harder to get timely information while the department is in full crisis mode, but I got enough from those in the know to address some of the drivel you guys think is important.

    First off, on the Mandoyan front, whatever he does is through his attorney’s advice, not the sheriff’s. That pretty much kills all those back door arguments, and the real issue is how much money the board is willing to spend to conceal misconduct from McDonnell’s administration. The facts are in, false accusation and willful concealment of exculpatory evidence by IAB, oops! The BOS burned an innocent man at the stake, so every penny spent by the board is to conceal that.

    Let’s see what’s next? Oh, a deputy with a take home car working the 8th floor I believe. Horrible situation for sure, but the fact the sheriff has a small team of personnel who drive all over the county and organize town halls and community advisory groups is nothing new or outrageous, its smart business. I was also told the sheriff doesn’t comment on personnel matters, so you’ll have to figure that one out from here.

    Last but not least is the BOS and their “victim” the CEO. Sachi told both the sheriff and the fire chief that benefits were not retroactive and that employees would have to use their own time. Last time I checked, pretty sure the HR expert in that conversation is Sachi, not the sheriff or the fire chief. This was a conference call with dozens of attendees, including from our department. Once the heat was on only then did she talk about administrative leave, which by then was already addressed. We will give Sachi the benefit of the doubt and not know which hat she was wearing at the time, but her subsequent claims are disingenuous at best.

    Sorry if this info disappoints you, or if you prefer that employees with pre-existing conditions keep their condition away from their employer, but perhaps you can offer a better solution in dealing with this pandemic, from your vast personal experiences of course.

    • Well well well, Lil Dreamer has returned after days of hiding and trying to figure out how in the heck can he attempt protect and cover for his failing hero sheriff. The only true line in his entire above list of complete bullshit is: “ It’s harder to get timely information while the department is in full crisis mode…”

      That is exactly the point everyone, including the Board of Supervisors (all five of them by the way), the CEO, and the media have been pointing out. Which is THE REASON Lil Alex got the boot out of the CEOC Director’s chair.

      Current LASD Leadership = Chaos and Crisis

        • Thanks Skippy, I missed that “Opinion” piece today. Here is the most concerning and telling excerpt of this article:

          “Then on April 3 the board sent a letter scolding Sheriff Alex Villanueva for making inaccurate and irresponsible — and ignorant, to be frank — statements about whether deputies placed on leave would be paid.

          As The Times reported Friday, the sheriff’s false and misleading statements led some commenters to post social media threats against the county’s chief executive officer, Sachi Hamai. Villanueva fumbled badly, and he deserved (at very least) the board’s angry letter in response.”

          I highly doubt the Brown Act enforcement action will be used in this circumstance when the Board of Sups needed to “Chin Check” the ignorant sheriff during his outlandish childlike temper tantrum with “5 Signature” STFU letter during a global pandemic.

          • @Clown Show- Of course that’s all you took from that piece. Shows how simple minded you are. Quick question for you…what was Sachi’s job before her current position?

      • @Clown boy

        Is that the best you can come back with?

        Ahhhhhh snap, KD not only dropped the mic on you, but bitch slapped you with both hands and feet.

        You just got taken to school homie. If I’m you I’d change my alias. Go back to Enema.

    • Keep Dreaming ( JB ), on the Mandoyan front, “whatever he does is through his attorney’s advice, not the sheriff’s”….. hahaha ok nice deflection. It has been over 16 months, I have yet to see any proof the board is concealing misconduct from McDonnell’s administration; where are the buried bodies. NO FACTS just bullshit.

      • @Propaganda

        It’s much bigger than Mandoyan. You’re obviously out of the loop.

        Question for you and Clown, all bullshit aside, what’s your real beef with AV? Seriously, as we go back and forth helping the analytics on Celeste’s blog, I’m really curious what AV has done to you guys? How hard would it be for you guys to help tighten our bond as Deputies, regardless of rank and help everyone, including AV to better our department. At what point did guys decide to go rogue and why? For once I’m not talking shit but talking partner to partner.

        • Tips 2.0, we have succumbed to years of mismanagement, public humiliations, incarcerations ( the rear view mirror albeit Baca ) among our LASD family. Let me be very clear about one thing: I’m not the arbiter of what constitutes phenomenal leadership. I sincerely thought AV was going to be different. However, decisions made by the AV are mind boggling, and these pesky charades continue on a weekly basis. Who gives him advise, and does he listen to any advise. What happened to our principles, ethics, sound decision making, disciplinary policies, merit based standards for both hiring, and promotions. I want to be optimistic, but for LASD to recover in the aftermath of the AV era, I am afraid it may be turned into one like the LAPD, and not be relevant as a Department.

    • I would like to address paragraph 3…Why are u trivializing the situation with that deputy.?? The deputy in question committed a HUGE error in action and response,resulting in a significant loss of life. Furthermore, she was, to my understanding a roll-up who was POEing everybody and their mother so she could get signed off. So u reward her with an A schedule and a take home car, that speaks volumes of our past leadership. Her actions during that “incident” should have resulted in termination not promotion.It is incidents like those that demonstrate why LASD has become a second tier and laughed at LE organization….

  • Propaganda, when you say “decisions made by the AV are mind boggling,” it would help if you gave some reference or context to that claim. Try not to use an LA Times article as reference, because they’ve abandoned all journalistic integrity a long time ago. The hiring standards haven’t changed one iota since 2006, and they are audited by POST on a yearly basis. The County HR eliminated the height and weight standard, so we are stuck with that for now, perhaps something you are unaware of.

    Clown show, you need professional help. There is the LA media outside of the Times, which has reported pretty accurately and your heroes at 500 W. Temple are not doing so well. Even the Times turned their attention towards the board and almost got it right, unchartered territory for them. In case you need some help, here is the link you need to read and absorb:

    https://lasd.org/pdf/Case-Analysis-Redacted-Public.pdf

    It would help if you went to the lasd.org website now and then and read all the documents that are now available courtesy of the Transparency Project the sheriff initiated when he took office.

    • Lil Dreamer, I have to admit, I almost spit out my morning coffee while laughing when I read your suggestion to review that fake ass Steve Gross authored, soul selling for assistant sheriff promotion application, reinstate Creepy Carl Mandoyan, white wash report. The one that failed to mention Alex’s directives to ousted and now forced to retire Chief of Staff Larry DelMese, to get Reaper Carl reinstated before Lil Alex was even sworn in. The one that glosses over the facts that Creepy Carl was fired for LYING about his alleged stalking activities.

      Ok, I’ll take your suggestion and not read the LA Times coverage for this one. Here’s a link that provides news coverage by all of the other reputable media outlets who have chronicled Lt. Villanueva’s illicit actions to illegally reinstate Creepy Carl:

      https://www.google.com/search?sxsrf=ALeKk02BXuPf3D2TjoUHOKZTLJWvSV719g%3A1586363545415&source=hp&ei=mfyNXrqIFYnUsAW6oZDIBw&q=carl+mandoyan+fired+for+lying&oq=carl+mandoyan+fired+for+lying&gs_lcp=CgZwc3ktYWIQAzIFCCEQqwIyBQghEKsCMgUIIRCrAjoECCMQJzoECAAQQzoFCAAQkQI6BQgAEIMBOgIIADoHCAAQFBCHAjoECAAQCjoECAAQAzoICAAQFhAKEB46BggAEBYQHjoICCEQoAEQiwM6CAghEKsCEIsDOgUIIRCgAUo1CBcSMTBnMTM0ZzE3OGcxMTJnMTE1ZzEwMmcxNDZnMTA1ZzMxMmcxNzdnMjQ1ZzI1MmcyMjVKHggYEhowZzFnMWcxZzFnMWcxZzFnMWcxZzVnNWcxMFCCCFiqUmCWaWgBcAB4AIABuQKIAccukgEIMi4xNC45LjSYAQCgAQGqAQdnd3Mtd2l6uAEC&sclient=psy-ab&ved=0ahUKEwj6uOvcoNnoAhUJKqwKHboQBHkQ4dUDCAw&uact=5

      You’re welcome

      • WOW!!!

        Six pages of stuff, ten items per page, all for

        Lying.

        Some of it is from the L.A. Times, but most of it isn’t.

        Where else but the LASD can you get caught lying and then get

        Googled.

        • Here’s one for the Google factor:

          Amazing how those (taxpayers) in the arena are paying the price for foolishness and cronyism. No big deal when it’s not coming out of their pocket.

          Before retiring in 2014, I saw something very similar at ALADS. The president of ALADS was booted out supposedly over attendance issues within their Board and he was removed, no big deal there.

          The big deal is ALADS filing a civil lawsuit (BC540789) after the fact which is still ongoing. Again no big deal to ALADS Board considering that members of ALADS is footing the bill.

        • Wow…where have you guys been? Everyone got fired under McDonnell for lying. That was their go to reason to be fired. One of my old partners got fired for lying. The best part of his termination is when they couldnt prove that he was lying, he asked the chief during his Skelly hearing wheres the proof that he lied. The chief’s response was “we dont have to prove it. We feel that you did.”

          • “The Chief’s response was ‘we don’t have to prove it. We feel that you did.’ ”

            Was that firing upheld on appeal?

            I really can’t imagine that kind of response surviving appellate perusal that can go all the way up to both the State & Federal Supreme Courts, especially since there are all kinds of top-notch labor lawyers that would handle the matter on a contingency basis, meaning that the lawyer charges a fee only if the case is won.

      • You’re only showing your ignorance with a Google search. Nice try at trying to discredit the report, but you fail miserably. I missed the part where Steve Gross authored it, by the way. Perhaps you can point to the citation? Oh wait you can’t. Bummer!

        An honest reading of the report reveals the accuser edited her own “evidence,” left out a segment that was over 90% of the exchange on video, and the IA investigators ignored text messages that contradicted the entire story. You also forgot the part where McDonnell’s own executives said it was neither a termination case nor were the findings of false statements substantiated. Oh snaps!

        Last but not least, you glossed over the part where the advocacy sergeant interviewed a witness who impeached the testimony of the accuser and then concealed that from the defense. Isn’t that a crime?

        Yes Clown Show, keep Googling all you want, it apparently does little for your reading comprehension.

        • @Rakkasan-No. He lost his civil service case. Since he was not able to record the skelly hearing, it was his word against the chief’s. Originally he won his case with the hearing officer. It went to the CSC and they voted 4-1 in him getting his job back. The county attorney appealed, like they always do, went back 2 months later and voted 5-0 in the county’s favor with no new evidence brought to the table. Now hes going through the appeal process which has been put on hold.

          • Skippy, what about the other 400+ Deputies who lost their jobs. Why is Mandoyan given the special preference, and why is AV going to bat only for him.

  • @Clown boy

    those are all LA Times piggy back stories, you IDIOT. Definitely not a good source of information. How about the physical emails from Department executives under McDonnell who ALL said he wasn’t lying and who ALL said it was NOT a discharge case. Guess facts don’t matter when it’s clear as day and doesn’t suit your agenda.

    It’s funny how you won’t call DelMese, Reaper Larry anymore. Lol… You must know about his pretty little American flag body art he acquired covering his Reaper one. What a Sellout!

    DelMese is now on Team Layva, since he became Ray’s bitch and sold the department down the drain while stabbing AV in the back. Why AV let that weasel survive a year was shocking to me. The boss really has a heart. I would have had him follow his boy Layva out of the door in April.

    • Soooooooo, what you are saying is the LA Times are the reputable news source that all other news media go to for their stories?

      • @Clown boy

        Sure buddy.. Also, none of the articles you listed says anything about him lying. You listed nonsense. Alleged is the key word! Keep reading the report. Mcdummy’s own executives knew he wasn’t lying and weren’t going to discharge him. Your girlfriend Teran fucked him as she did hundreds of others.

        What’s your obsession with Mandoyan? Did he hurt your feelings back in the day? Call it for what it is. Everyone in the department knows he got screwed. I know you deep down do too just won’t admit it because it doesn’t fit your narrative.

        • Well then, here’s a “TIP” for ya. Ya better convince the Judge who is handling Creepy Carl’s case because so far, he’s not buying Alex’s, Carl’s, Lil Dreamer’s or your bullshit about the “facts” that resulted in the “duly processed” and “upheld firing” of Mandoyan.

          And as for the focus on The Lying Stalker, he is just Exhibit -A of Alejandro Villanueva’s corrupt actions since even before assuming the office. The spark that is leading to the current day implosion of the AV led LASD.

          • @Clown show

            You’re obviously a female and probably a blonde one with initials of KB. Didn’t you learn your lesson before? Do you need to be called out again. You’re not smart, chipmunk.

          • @Clown KB

            Also, no one other than you gives two shits about any of this. Ask your husband to show you one of the polls done during the primaries and you’ll see that AV has an approval rating of over 60% from the community. Your husband should know since he cant win an election to save his life. Lol

    • Only Lt. Villanueva’s incompetence could generate such postings and commentary action. At least he’s accomplished something! LMAO

      • @Clown Show-These “postings” you talk about sound more like a bunch of sour grapes finding something to complain about. Bitter, sour individuals that got screwed by AV. You weren’t sour when you and your boy McDonnell were firing deputies left and right for things they never should’ve been fired for. Quite opposite, you were drinking that nice wine he was promising you and your buddies.

    • Tips 2.0, where did you get AV’s 60% approval rating. Any data to prove your flirtatious number. The last time I checked, he had a 73% dis-approval rating from the most recent elections held on March 3rd, where LA County residents overwhelemgly voted for civilian oversight of the Department. They did so because they do not trust AV to run the Department, and view him as an aberration in LASD history.
      If he continues the path he will definitely be recalled.

      • @Absurd

        I’ve seen two separate polls conducted by two separate campaigns. One for DA and the other for a school board election.

        The bullshit Measure R was misleading to the public anyway and had nothing to do with anything, and focused on jail population.

        Shows how much you know. If you know anyone who’s on a any campaign, just ask them. I had campaign managers from other candidates tell me repeatedly, “The BOS may not like your sheriff, but the public sure does.” You opinion and WLA doesn’t even show up on the map of what matters. Chew on that.

        • Tips 2.0

          You mean the DA who could not get 50% to win an election. Don’t worry, it won’t be Gascón who will defeat AV. The old saying fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. The people of LA County know they got played and fooled.

          Measure R passed with over 73% of the votes. This even after AV and his closest people pleaded to vote NO.

          ALEX VILLANUEVA = ONE TERM SHERIFF.

          • @Absurd

            You asked a question and I answered it for you with facts. Sorry you didn’t like the facts. That seems to be a common problem with you haters here. Remember, facts should matter.

  • Lil Dreamer and Tiptoes, since you two want to rewrite the Creepy Carl matter based on his lawyers “new evidence” here is a non-LA Times article that accurately recaps were we are today (complete with those priceless videos): https://laist.com/2019/08/19/judge_orders_fired_la_sheriffs_deputy_who_was_rehired_by_villanueva_to_give_up_his_badge_and_gun.php

    Basically, Lt. Alex and his Bagman have racked up loss after loss after humiliating and LASD reputational loss. Now we are just awaiting the Coronavirus delayed final court decision. Which I predict will finalize the Alex & Mandoyan costly losing streak. This would also explain why Lt. Alex and frantic Captain McBride got caught trying to slip Creepy Carl in through the back door as a new hire. Oops again.

    • @Clown

      You keep posting the same shit. There’s absolutely no evidence to keep him out.
      None. Keep posting old redundant articles. You must be scared of Carl for some reason. He’s definitely living rent free in your head. That’s hilarious.

  • Ha. That’s Funny! I’ve never heard anyone say that about him. Obviously it has to be from those hiding behind aliases. If he’s got you tards calling him names and living rent free in your heads while he’s home, he must definitely be doing something right. I’ll definitely give Carl credit though, he’s got a lot of you scared shitless. Lol. I bet you’ll never say it to him in person.

  • Really? U must not have worked SLA. Ask the people there. Please?! There must have been 3 or 4 females he “chased”… don’t make me name names…. please….?

  • Oh, and NOBODY is afraid of Creepy C. Only what his mommy and daddy will do to them. That’s all. Him? He’s a wannabe, a fake, a clown. EVERYONE knows (that matters) knows that….

  • @Alads member

    Bigggg sigh. Another tough guy talking big. Why don’t you call him and tell him yourself?

    You obviously know him. So, call him and let him know how you feel and let us know how that went. Lol… My money is you most likely won’t and when you see him, you’ll be, “Hey brother” this and “Hey Brother” that.

    Other than that you’re just white noise.

  • @Alads member

    I’m not CM.

    But like i said and suggest to you, take it to him like a man and please let us know how that went. Other than that stop hiding behind an alias.

  • Ok CM, (wink wink)….. only at 11:56 pm would “someone else” care about this…. CM, Creepy Moron, please stop bullying people on this site. It’s deplorable.

  • @Alads member

    I’ve been here all day. My rdo in quarantine, tough guy. You obviously do care because you choose to pile on a guy who’s been through hell. Be a man and call him. I’ll let him him know to look at your posts and i guarantee you he’ll know who you are.

  • No need 2.0, u are CM. CM, please seek help, ur personality disorder is alarming….keep engaging me, I want everyone here to see exactly why U SHOULD NEVER BE REINSTATED.

    • ALADS Member 2000,
      Your union (ALADS) payed dearly for Mandoyan’s enabler Alex Villanueva.
      Which one is more damaging? ALADS backing Villanueva or Villanueva backing Mandoyan.

      • @Befuddled, good question and an easy answer: A) ALADS backing the retired Clown Lt. who is now playing Sheriff.

        If that didn’t happen in the first place, none of the Mandoyan crap, the executive experience purge which led to the current cronyism and inexperienced yes men, the costly & losing battle with the Board of Supervisors, the huge fiscal year budget mismanagement and overruns, the landslide election loss which has now provided the Civilian Oversight Commission with subpoena power, the eviction of the Sheriff from the CEOC Director’s position, the recently filed federal lawsuit for unconstitutionally ordering the closure of gun stores, the soon to be filed HIPAA violations lawsuits due to AV’s idiotic directions to his command staff, and lastly, the long term and irreparable harm to the once great LASD’s standing amongst all of law enforcement in the nation as Lt Alex is now the laughing stock Sheriff in the land.

        I’m sure I missed a few other Lt Villanueva’s failed leadership blunders, but you probably get the point.

  • Circle of Stars, I’m laughing so hard at your post and video, absolutely hilarious. AV Clown Show, next firefight I’m in, I want you right next to me. You are relentless, it’s like you have a 50 cal, belt fed machine gun with unlimited ammo. AV circled himself with Tanaka clowns and they convinced him they, and only they, knew the way. And they took him right over a cliff, he will not recover and that is sad. There were so many people who wanted to help and guide AV with his new role for NO other reason but to make him successful and resurrect LASD. He kicked them all to the curb, meanwhile the Tanaka klan will all retire with rank, pay and are laughing at AV while saying, “Mission accomplished.” A sad clown show, but morale is through the roof.

    • Vover, you are absolutely right about that and when the new Lt. list comes out today people will see more of that. Obviously that thing AV tried to push about having 2 years of patrol is out the window. Clown, I am starting to like your rhetoric more and more. And tips you and Dreamer boy are having a hard time keeping up, this shit is getting good.

  • Tanaka:
    -Didn’t have significant field experience. Surrounded himself with Vikings/Reapers/Regulators to get “cred”
    -Promoted those who were PERSONALLY loyal to him regardless of their qualifications
    -Weighed in on each promotion from Sergeant all the way up to Chief
    -Vocal about his dislike of internal investigations and investigators
    -Had a small circle of advisors and it wasn’t the Department’s executive staff
    -Terrible relationship with the BOS even though he was the Department liaison
    -Supported the “hire per Waldie” system that hired against Background recommendations because they “wanted the numbers”.
    -Did not support the chain of command. Told deputies “call me if you don’t like what your Captain/Lieutenant/Sergeant is doing”
    -Picked one station to support above the others
    -Short tempered and vindictive

    There’s more but I think you get the point. Or do I have to draw a picture?

  • @sidkrimm: Looks like Tanaka and AV have a lot in common. Guess AV is going to follow Tanaka’s footsteps on a 5 year plan.

  • Saw AV giving his briefing at the BOS today and all I could see on his collar were those stars chasing themselves like that dog chasing its tail……………………

    You know what? I never trusted a guy who combs his hair straight back like a 30’s mobster.

    Just a thought.

  • I just saw the new Lt. promotion’s so much for that line time, AV is a straight up liar and a disaster. Clown let loose on this guy whenever you can.

    • @10/3, let loose? You want me to let loose now? No way Jose. I’m on that list! You won’t believe how my strategy worked. Let me fill you in on the new successful promotional game plan.

      Gone are the days of putting in long hours, making sound decisions, and impressing your bosses at every assignment of your dedication, knowledge, experience and demonstrated skills under real life situations. All I had to do now was buddy up to Captain McBride who spends his every breathing moment trying to kiss Lt. Villanueva’s old hobbled ass. I just had to give him hints and names of who I believed was talking the most crap on WLA. I just made up my detailed analysis link chart and justification for why only (4) imaginary retired guys would want to talk smack about our hero at the helm. My captain bought it hook, line and sinker, and scurried it up the chain. But don’t get me wrong; he didn’t take it up the normal chain through his commander, chief and so on. He took the Red Line directly to Captain Bigglesworth Burcher. Captain BB then called Asst Sheriff VV and BAM, I’m in like flint.

      Don’t hate the Playah, hate the Game. Laughing my way to Da Bank.

  • 10/3,
    Did you expect anything different from Stumbling, fumbling AV. Here is how both Mr & Mrs boot up: A self-fulfilling fuck-you attitude” This is my one shot to get even with the one’s who screwed me my entire career, damn the line time. The only one’s getting promoted are his band of merry lunatics who kiss the ring, and call him “his majesty”.
    AV will continue in his endless streams of fumbles and missteps. The guy has no character or honor, but the cracks are showing.
    Oh wait let me say my prayers now and fake being a good Christian. Our father in heaven…….whaaaa whaaaaa whaaaaa on a Good Friday.

          • Don’t keep us wondering–tell us more about these “Grey Market” (working the grey?) vehicles.

            For those who don’t know a “Grey Market” BMW is a BMW made in Germany & shipped into the U.S. without meeting Federal & Sate (Calif.) Emissions & safety standards.

            Deep shit, there.

          • Do tell the direct / indirect connection with Carl & Alex?
            It has to be a lot more to it in which I believe would be a national headline.

  • First, the 5th District’s Barger, traditionally a staunch ally of the Department sent a veiled, “What the hell were were you thinking?” letter to AV:

    https://kathrynbarger.lacounty.gov/letter-to-sheriff-alex-villanueva/

    Unfortunately, despite an immense intellect and advanced education, AV wasn’t quite clear on the point Barger was making. So the entire Board sent a letter for clarity (see below link).

    In more than 30 years, I’ve never seen the Board address a Sheriff like this and it’s truly embarrassing.

    For those out there (Keep Dreaming, Tips 2.0 or “Bro”) with their noses so far up AV’s butt all you can see are their Vibram soles, stand by. Unlike Villanueva, the BOS has a plan and I’m GUESSING it involves the flow of money to the Department. They are literally laying siege to the LASD and the troops he claims love him are already feeling the heat. It will only get worse.

    While LOTS of people now have take-home cars (including the deputy in the Sheriff’s Office who was responsible for the deaths of two ELA boys and shouldn’t be driving at all), ask a patrol deputy how easy it is to find a car at their station to go 10-8 or how abundant cleaning supplies and PPE were/are during this pandemic.

    http://file.lacounty.gov/SDSInter/bos/supdocs/145154.pdf

  • Ron Hernandez, How is ALADS investment working out as a stakeholder for Lieutenant Villanueva.

    My advice to you is to stop rolling the dice and save ALADS cash flow for a more genuine cause. If deputies only knew….

    I know morale has peaked with a record high, so let’s reward the deputies with more than bottles of hand sanitizers.

  • So Incompetent Alex has admitted to caving in to the #NoJails activist groups as he desperately seeks to retain any source of his dwindling Neo-Program support base, by releasing 25% of the L.A. County Jail’s INMATES. That’s right folks, the Clown that was elected to provide public safety by enforcing the state laws within LA County has instead chosen to release over 4200 INMATES back into the community under the guise of protecting them from the “possibility” of Coronavirus exposure.

    Inept Alex will try to downplay this by stating they were all “non-violent” offense criminals. We all know that might have been their current or latest offense, but I can guarantee a very large percentage of those released by incompetent Alex have prior arrests for crimes of violence. Stand by for the inevitable crime increases and true victims of Villanueva’s unsafe public policies. Pulled right out the files of: You Can’t Make This Shit Up!

    • Did you see AV lie, punt, and evade on yesterdays press conference. I bet the BOS has all restraints off when it comes to laying the siege when dealing with the incompetent man on the 8th floor. As we heard yesterday: The Sheriff of Los Angeles County is demonstratively a cheap date on the law and order front.
      Hey ALADS how’s that for your NEO-PROG choice.

    • “Under the guise of….”

      Not a guise at all.

      COVID-19 is

      1. Deeply contagious.
      2. There is no vaccine, treatment, or cure for it. Medical people say a vaccine is probably 18 months away, and that is considered “breakneck” speed in vaccine development..
      3. A healthy, young person who gets it will recover after about three weeks of gawd-awful sickness.

      The Sheriff did the right thing here, and he should be applauded for it.

      • If he was really concerned about the dangers posed by the COVID-19 virus he could have said the following: If you, or a household member experiences any of the following symptoms:
        Wheezing, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
        Fever
        Cough

        Contact your Doctor, get tested, wear a mask to protect others……. but unfortunately, he did not. The simple truth about Villanueva is that, he has been exposed over the past month by the BOS: He simply wasn’t (and isn’t) ready for the challenges that are self- inflicted onto LASD.

        • “But unfortunately, he did not.”

          Bullshit!!!

          Since there is no treatment or cure for this malady he is doing the right thing.

    • @Clown Show- I dont agree with a lot of things you say….but I’m backing you up on this one 100%.

      People in jail and prison have better chances of avoiding this virus in jail/prison than they would on the streets.

  • Watching King of the County is funnier than The Improv.

    He’s not fooling the public, he’s only fooling himself if he still believes he’s capable of doing the job.

  • Just circling back to last weeks Alejandro’s Clown Show Escapades with the Board of Supervisors, now that their 5-0hhhh “Alex B-Slap” signature letter was formally approved during yesterday’s official Board meeting. No wonder the CEO and the Board of Supervisors had to educate the illiterate Sheriff Villanueva with detailed and professional letters informing him on how to place possibly exposed COVID-19 personnel on paid administrative leave time while on home quarantine. Looks like they are “documenting” the trainee sheriff on the “Dopey” improvement needed training program.

    One more justification for removing him from the CEOC Directors chair during the pandemic crisis response, when it is painfully obvious that he can’t even properly lead the LASD, much less the County’s response.

    Which, by the way, has been going perfectly since his ouster!

    • No word from ALADS President Ronald Hernandez?

      Initially he was the referee between Villanueva and the Board of Supervisors.
      No returns as of yet for the 1.3 smackeroonies.
