Blogger's notes: This blogger would be remiss if he did not take the time to highlight this act of giving from the family of retire parole officer Caroline Agurrie, along with daughter Dr. Maria Nieto , in honor of her late husband LAPD Highland Park Station Homicide Detective Joe F. Aguirre. Most in the local political community know Caroline for her "direct and blunt assessment" on policing and the state of California's Parole System. But what many don't see when engaging with Caroline on issues (especially if they are expressing an argument counter to Caroline's), is a heart that matches her petite size. You can judge for yourself with these facts. Between Walgreens, Target and Rite-Aid stores in Northeast LA, a total of eight LAPD vans and a flat bed truck were loaded with toys and given to Hollywood Division officers for their annual toy giveaway on December 10, 2011. Note that over 2000 children were given toys at this event and one would hope that at least that many thanks will make their way to Caroline and family---Scott Johnson. ** We should note that assisting Caroline in the toys pick up were Hollywood Division Officers Sgt. Darrell Davis and Lead Officers Ralph Sanchez, Robert Davenport, Danny Pesqueria and Irv Isabella.
