Morning Briefs on the Los Angeles Political Machine for Monday

As the Los Angeles Times discloses on a Sunday Front Page Exclusive, the numbers-based strategies  behind LAPD"s COMPSTAT are flawed (or fraudulent) and an indictment of crime-fighting being usurp by a politically-driven need to show reduction in criminal activity.
 Damned the politically-driven vernacular, put the criminals behind bars (until now City Attorney Mike Feuer's co-authored AB 109 puts them back on the streets)!!
LAPD Chief Charlie Beck (with daughter Brandi) has now "COMPSTATgate" to go with "Ponygate" and an alleged Sex Scandal involving his uniformed off-spring.
** Bloggger's Note: Somewhere in the City of Angels are 1200 victims of violent crimes that are owed an apology. Never should the prosecuting of a criminal and the police work involved in the successful resolution of the case become captive to politics, period! The LA Times is to be commended for listening to the likes of retire Parole Officer Caroline Aguirre and other law enforcement activists in breaking this Exclusive. While the case by case reasons that 1200 Aggravated Assaults became mere simple Assaults may vary, the overriding factor here is that LAPD has become a politicized entity where the professional work of law enforcement, has been usurp by the need to immerse political goals into simple crime stopping. In the years since the selection of the Police Chief was taken out of the Civil Service process and turned into a political spectacle, I been witness to countless community meetings that have seen Senior Lead Officers become verbal pronouncers of politically-driven crime stats that only a few have dared to question (Ms. Aguirre being one). Thus, one can only hope with a new Mayor installed on the Third Floor, that he and his appointees on the Police Commission will take decisive steps in selecting new scandal-free leadership, in the spirit of returning professional leadership, free of political entanglements, to the LAPD...., and that cause would greatly be reinforce by reinstalling the Civil Service process in selecting a "Professional Chief"---Scott Johnson.
** In this week's installment of the "Daily Valley Moldy Green Sheet" (aka. LA Daily News) City Hall Beal Writer Rick Orlov's "Tipoff Column", mentions that former Assembly Speaker and losing State Controller Candidate known as "Tony Villar's First Cousin John (Perez)", was a guest (along with former Clowncil President and current State Senator Alex Padilla), of Mayor Eric Garcetti at City Hall. As Mayor Garcetti sought out the local Sacramento politico duo's insight on a myriad of issues, CD 14 observers could not help but wonder if this initial meeting between Mayor Garcetti and "First Cousin John" may motivate a "Perez for CD 14 Campaign"?
** In observing and musing on the Los Angeles Political Machine, the cast of characters is a ever growing list. The likes of "MEAT/Chief Parker", the "Huevon Princeton Graduate", "Gorda Boo Boo" and of course "The Failure Mayor", never fail to bloggin entertain. That said, one group of vile miscreants never fail to lower themselves into the cesspool of rhetoric, the GATTO TRUTHERS at the Astro Turf Burbank Blog. Consider their latest cowardy insult on Ron Kaye for calling out their Ethnic Cleansing Leader, Assemblymen "Slobo Mikey" Gatto's scam charade in attempting to overturn the "Citizen United Supreme Court Decision. One can also discern from their additional, repugnant, personal attacks on State Senate Candidate Anthony Portatino, that "Slobo Mikey" will not be joining the crowded field to replace CD 4 City Clowncilman Tom LaBonge.
** West Los Angeles was once the repository for the Leftist Husband and Wife Duo of Tom Hayden and "Hanoi Jane" Fonda. Now in 2014, Westside voters in the 33rd Congressional District will have a chance to choose as Liberal "Nostril Henry" Waxman's replacement "Hamas Teddy" Lieu. The Campaign of his Republican Challenger Elan Carr, is calling upon "Hamas Teddy" to return an award he received (he has so far refused to) from the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has alleged, documented links with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood among others.
** With less than 48 hours remaining to the much-anticipated (bloggin tongue in cheek) LAUSD District One Special Election Runoff between Distinguish Educator George McKenna and LA County Board of Supervisor Mark "Home Renovation-Thomas" Staffer Alex "Ridley-Johnson-Thomas", supporters of McKenna have sent the following mailer below to voters ........
Simply, Rookie Educational Neophytes have no place on a "Board of Educators". 
Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14
