LA SPIRALS: Los Angeles Democratic City Council Member Charged by FBI in Corruption Probe

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.24.20

From Fox News:

The FBI on Tuesday arrested Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar on racketeering charges after a long-running corruption probe.

Huizar, a 51-year-old Democrat, was accused of taking bribes from developers and others with business before the City Council Planning and Land Use Management Committee which he chaired.

The investigation, dubbed “Operation Casino Royale,” began five years ago after Huizar was seen cashing out casino chips he received from a Chinese billionaire with a hotel in his district, the FBI said.

The city council stripped Huizar of his powerful chairmanship after the FBI raided his home in 2018.

CHAOS LA: Los Angeles City Council Proposes ‘Unarmed Social Workers’ Instead of LAPD for Emergencies

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.22.20

Members of the Los Angeles City Council left millions of concerned citizens scratching their heads this week; urging first responders to deploy “Unarmed Social Workers” instead of police officers for some emergencies.

“Los Angeles City Council members believe they have an answer to minimize deaths at the hands of LAPD officers. Have unarmed mental health workers deal with the people instead. The proposal is an emergency-response model using trained ‘specialists’ instead of LAPD officers to attend those who are suffering from mental health and substance abuse, including the homeless,” reports TheGreggJarrett.com.

“Submitted by City Council members Nury Martinez, Herb Wesson, Marqueece Harris-Dawson, Curren Price and Bob Blumenfield, the motion “asks city departments to work with the Los Angeles Police Department and Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority to develop a model that diverts nonviolent calls for service away from the LAPD and to ‘appropriate non-law enforcement agencies” reported the Los Angeles Times,” adds the website.

“LAPD officers racked up $40 million in overtime during the recent protests, but won’t be paid for it, and will instead be given comp time, according to a memo sent out by Chief Moore I obtained. Budget is out of cash. LAPD sources tell me morale is at ‘rock bottom,’” posted a reporter with Fox Los Angeles.

 

“According to multiple LAPD sources, LAPD Transit Division/MTA services, which is paid via OT, had 43 officers cancel their shifts today, and they are now averaging 12-18 cancellations per shift,” adds the journalist.
