LAPD Fails to Prosecute Hate Crime

A senior citizen was physically assaulted during Sunday's civil rights march in Los Angeles, however sources are telling the Sister City the Los Angeles Police Department has refused to pursue hate crime charges against the perpetrator.

The victim and witnesses allege that a individual from among the counter-protesters threw a full Coke can at her chest.

Community activist David Hernandez has announced that a reward will be offered and will demand that the City Council match the reward. They will also insist that hate crime charges be pursued.

An interview with the victim is below:

HElllOOOO!!!! Mayor Sam I thought you were a lot smarter then that. LAPD DOESN'T PROSECUTE THE CITY ATTORNEY OR DA DOES. Officers write their report and submit to the agency who then decides whether to follow through with the charges. In the report they will state what happened and then its up to the city attorney or DA depending on circumstances whether they want to prosecute for the crime.

What makes this a hate crime?

The fact that a Coke instead of a Pepsi was used makes this a hate crime. You know that Pepsi is the favored cola drink in Mexico. This old bag was lucky she wasn't punched in the face. This lady lives in the L.A. area, you can't go into Harlem and say you hate black people or you can't go into Idaho and so you hate White people - this is L.A., say you hate Brown people and see what you get.

BTW, doesn't David Hernandez look eerily like Mike Hernandez. The only thing worse than a slef hating Jew is a slef hating Mexican. How are those family reunions coming along David? Oh I forgot, you've got no family because there all Mexicans. You fool.

This happened at an event where cameras were everywhere.

But you've presented no documentation, whatsoever. Just a video of a befuddled old woman telling a story.

No evidence whatsoever.

Put up or shut up.

Gee, poor David Hernandez who at least has the guts to stand up for what he believes in and you get the loving supporters of illegals trashing him instead of dealing with the issue. I bet none of the idiots attacking him have done anything in their life let alone their own neigborhood that has been positive. You're just like the negative fools who post crap on here about Neighborhood Councils yet I'm sure none of you volunteer your time. David Hernandez is the voice for many Latinos in this city who don't support the illegals who have made this city a 3rd world country and wasted BILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS instead of applying for citiznship BECAUSE ITS THE LAW and they're lazy.

David it could be a hate crime if when they threw the coke can (which can be extremely dangerous especially to the head) they yelled out some type of racial slur.

You can bet if it was an illegal who got hit all you little dick men would be yelling

Not that race baiting attacks deserve any response. But there may be some who would appreciate more information.

The assault took place as the Marchers were returning to their staging point. The Victim was walking with other marchers on the sidewalk as part of the march. The LAPD had moved to the street and there were no officers between the marchers and the crowds along the business frontage.

The women,a grandmother who was marching and attempting to exercise her Civil Rights, was struck in the chest by a full unopened can of Coke. She fell to the ground and was assisted by members of the March and LAPD.

That was just for clarity.

LAPD took a report on the scene. The police report will be made available to Mayor Sam once it is received. On the report form there is a box to be checked if the victim believes this was a “Hate Crime”.

Given the circumstances of the incident, it is not likely the assault was just a college prank.

So the report and the Hate Crime indication is first done at the LAPD level. It is the LAPD who refused to have the Box checked.

The Los Angeles District Attorney will be the next agency in line to receive the report. Under the California Hate Crime Law, (which you can review) P.C. 422.7 states-Commission of a crime for the purpose of interfering with another’s exercise of civil rights.The section also places this as a Felony.

So my friends, that is the long and short of it. But make no mistake, this crime will not be ignored simply because it was an elderly white women who was attacked.

The white house has already been contacted and they are following up with the victim.

Hope that helps,

Mayor Sam you must do something about the little mindless boys you have posting on here. Anyone knows that anything to the head can be serious. I saw a man hit on the head with an apple that was thrown hard and he started bleeding it wouldn't stop. Doctors will tell bleeding from the head is very dangerous.

Finally Antonio seems to be getting it. Guess he doesn't like people who have been saying LA is the most underpoliced city in the nation.

A reward? Sounds like they don't even have a suspect in custody to even consider charging/prosecuting. Besides, LA County DA's office or the City Attorney charges/prosecutes. When police "prosecute" that falls under the catagory of "street justice." Therefore it is a GOOD thing that the LAPD didn't prosecute. I think you know all of this but your story is so lack luster that you felt you had to punch it up by misleading the reader with your header.

Coupla things...

614 when I said prosecute I meant as in follow up, pursue, etc. I realize the LAPD doesn't prosecute in a court of law. I was wondering when one of you were going to say "OH MAYOR SAM! LAPD doesn't prosecute!"

And I was wondering when someone was going to call David a "slef hating mexican." That presumes that all Mexicans must be monolithic and think the same way, therefore deviation indicates "slef (or perhaps self) hate." Dummy.

Lastly - as far as the white lady going to a Mexican area and saying she hates Mexicans - that's a brilliant statement. None of those people said they hate Mexicans. And many of them were Mexicans. What they were saying is they are tired of people cutting in line and coming the country illegally. The pro-open borders people can't counter that article so they play the race card.

I would like to highlight the fact that some of your one-dimensional and biased readers frequently dismiss woman of a certain age as an "old bag" or "befuddled old woman?" It seems to be a deep seated prejudice. Men of the same age or minorities in general are NOT as frequently referenced in this negative manner. This has got to change.

Toward the end of the Roman Empire, all the barbarians at the borders started imposing their culture on the Empire. Slowly, Classical civilization degenerated to the point where all of the structures, functions and institutions of society disappeared. Society entered a long period known as the Dark Ages.

That is the same thing that is happening here. Stores take pesos for pizza. Large swaths of society are unacquainted with American mores or the American language, which is English.

The contributions by straight, white, European, Christian males are pooh-poohed. You like your car? I have news for you. Invented by a white guy. You like flying home to Mexico. That plane, invented by a white guy. You like talking on the phone? Invented by a white guy. How about the Declaration of Independence? The Constitution? Anglo-American values, all.

When people are so stupid that they do not realize it is a double standard to assault someone who is white but has a different viewpoint, that is a bad sign.

All crimes are based on hate; but that this was a racially motivated crime cannot be disputed.

When people feel comfortable posting attacks on white people (meth lab, Riverside, etc. references above), and they don't see that this is the same kind of racism they would abhor were it against their people, we have a problem.

During Classical times, a letter took 21 days to get from England to Rome. People could travel freely because of centralized authority. Art and craftmaking flourished. Technology progressed.

During the Dark Ages, there was no post office. There was no free travel because bandits and thieves roamed the countryside. People lived in walled cities. Certain technologies actually moved backwards: the ability to make glass and the flamethrower (yes they had them) were lost.

Who will be here to preserve and run our institutions when we are swamped from undereducated, non-acculturated, uncaring foreigners?

We will soon live like they do in Brazil: armored cars for the rich, slums for everyone else. People will stop coming here from TJ because we will have become TJ.

Society can go backwards. It is happening in Zimbabwe. Kicking out all the educated whites because they were envied was a popular campaign idea. Now no one is left to fix the tractors and distill the fuel needed to run them. Farm production is down 80%.

If you are a foreigner, there is nothing wrong with you. The fact I am not racist is evinced by my equal opportunity criticism of barbarians. In the Roman Empire, they were mostly blue-eyed Germans, the ancestors of many Anglo-Americans in fact.

But you need to call a spade a spade. You need to acknowledge that you or your ancestors came to this country because they found value in its institutions. It is hugely ironic that you want to turn this country into the same place you left.

You can tell the negative postings making mean remarks about the lady shows these people weren't raised well by their mothers and are uneducated. I always tell my men friends don't say anything about a woman you wouldn't want someone to say about your mother, sister, grandmother etc. The immaturity level on this blog has gone down hill with these juveniles. Real men who are secure within themselves wouldn't post such crap.

Mayor Sam, a lot of quality has left this blog due to overlong posts by Zuma Dog and Red Spot.

You and Walter pick good issues and create short posts.

Can you limit the length of posts of those to whom you have granted the privilege?

Many of us feel this way. I hope others will join in evidencing this sentiment.
