"Big Huizzy" keeps watch on Constituents in CD 14
Gonzalez and Sgt. Walker ride along marchers. With the likes of candidates for City Council, Neighborhood Council members, retire parole officers, off duty peace officers, community members and one or two Huizar supporters in the crowd. One is surprise that Councilman Huizar did not ask LAPD Chief Charlie Beck to call a "district-wide tactical alert". Better yet, Huizar may ask Chief Beck to reconstitute the dis-banded notorious SIS Bureau.
Nothing like a good Field Office Director keeping his boss inform on the numbers (small) and the who's who of the people in the crowd. BTW, how many other council districts in the City of Los Angeles have establish "staffer/ police ride along programs, to keep tabs on their outspoken constituents?
Gonzalez, third from the left, listens as University Hills Resident and LA-32 Neighborhood Council Member Mark Overstreet speaks to the audience. Nice to know in CD 14 that LAPD resources are always on standby to transport Councilman Huizar staffers to regurgitate written spin from the likes of Communications Director Rick "Coca Puffs" Coca. But this crowd wasn't buying his talking points.
Does CD 14 City Council Candidate Tony Butka, wearing glasses and light color shirt, merit his own LAPD provided "escort"? He may also want to watch to his right as Boyle Heights Neighborhood Council President Jose "H" Aguilar listens intently to the proceedings. Some have speculated that Aguilar and Huizar have "broken the tamale" and now are working together on a resolution to the Wyvernwood Apartment Complex issue.
