Meet Parolee Giovanni Ramirez, one of many examples of California's Parole System mistakes

 Parolee and "person of interest" in the Bryan Stow Beating Giovanni Ramirez as posted by KFI at 6 PM this evening.

Evening Update: KFI's Eric Leonard is reporting that all sided are tight-lipped about this evening's police line up at Twin Towers. Leonard reports that this evening's proceedings on Vignes Street are by far the most sensitive part of the developing case against Ramirez in the beating of Bryan Stow. Regardless whether Ramirez is formally indicted in the Stow Beating, it is relatively sure that the Varrio Nuevo Estrada (VNE) gang member will be returning to jail on a parole violation (procession of a fire arm according to Leonard).

Thursday Morning Update: LAPD at ease with last night's line up results.

The alleged actions of parolees such as Ramirez is sure to garner more attention on a California Parole System that has seen the accidental release of 450 high risk offenders and protests against department officials for illegal dumping of sex offenders in communities such as El Sereno.
In recent weeks, retire Parole Officer Caroline Agurrie noted in her NELA Lives Blog post and in The Voice Newspaper  the mistakes of parole officials in supervising parolee Edward Gonzalez, who enticed an six-year girl to follow him to a school near CD 14 Councilman Jose Huizar's Boyle Heights home and sexually assaulted her.
We should note that Councilman Huizar was one of the city elected officials who sought out camera time to denounce the Stow Beating. But like Mayor Villar and CD 1 Councilman Ed Reyes who were none too quick in seeking camera time in announcing the arrest of Ramirez, all three have been derelict in denouncing the costly mistakes of a parole system in need of reform.
Your thoughts..............

I just read the alert about the Autry Museum sneaking a new project through the Recreation and Parks meeting last Friday. Those people are the REAL criminals of the day. They may wear pretty shirts and ties, but they and the Recreation and Parks Board have shown just how low City Hall will go to please campaign contributors to the Mayor. Tell your friends to call Huziar's office tomorrow and demand he take some action to overturn these criminal acts.

The case is unraveling. Ramirez's 10 year old daughter says she was with him all day and his attorney submitted pictures supposedly proving he was not at the game. Plus the Stow family released Brian's criminal history record - somewhat similar to Giovanni's (not that this is any justification for the beating he got but trash talking while drunk is just asking for trouble, watch McCourt use this in his defense). Unless they catch the other two perps, Giovanni is walking.

With all the cameras and media at opening day, someone has to have this guy on film - he does have a unique appearence, even for a gang member.

Back to square one.

Say what you want to say about Giovanni Ramirez, but he doesn't post FALSE information about people on Mayor Sam.

Red Spot does.

And if all he's guilty of is a firearm possession, he will be back on the streets in a few months thanks to SCOTUS.

But lets just say he is the perp of the Dodgers beatdown, or lets say it's another parolee... Will the Parole Board, the state govt etc., be liable like the Dodgers are?

If the Dodgers, according to the plaintiffs, should have known about the dangers with a lack of security, surely the govt should have known what was possible if you release violent criminals out on to our streets before they have served their full sentence.

The photo is a perfect match. But there are lots of guys that look like the photo. Only time will tell and a jury.

Everyone needs to be patient to see if this guy turns out to be the right person the police are looking for.

Rep businessman will soon find a way around this law. Such hypocrites - "send back all the illegals but leave me some to augment my bottom line." This has always been the law - just that Rep businessman don't want to see it enforce. On the other hand, socially conscious Dem businessman who pay union wages do want this law enforced.

Photo is a perfect match. Only time will tell if his kid is lying or not. People need to be patient while authorities figure this all out. And, usually it takes a jury.

Police are doing the right thing by keeping things quiet. That is the smart thing to do.
