I feel like black Jesus with the escalation of Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors possible corruption case of Sheila Keuhl reaching the State Attorney General’s office.
Did I not say that although Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva would suffer injury and lose some battles during his elongated 4 year battle against the Board of Supervisors he would generate huge victories?
To put it simply the conflict that exists between the Sheriff and the Board (at least from my perspective) can be appropriately addressed in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s letter from the Birmingham Jail where he compares two forces in the “Negro” neighborhood, with one group of blacks feeling oppressed and beyond hope waiting for the promises of manna and honey, and another group of blacks whom through education or career obtained some level of wealth or social status and become less empathetic or sympathetic to those whom they should be sympathetic to even going so far as profiting off the masses pain and suffering any and every time the opportunity arises.
Let’s be real Sheriff Alex Villanueva isn’t the villain here he’s just a soilder carrying out his marching orders and I fully and unequivocally support him because he is exposing a corrupt system that has gotten so corrupt that it appears that the Board of Supervisors, along with other elected officials, have become so engrossed ,and with laser like focus has the sole goal in mind to enrich themselves, friends, families and rich corporate donors that they by design and malicious intent have openly and obstinately by words and actions have declared war on poor black and brown people.
War you ask ? What war?
Well let me ask you this?
Where is the money, the spoils and riches because it’s surely not reaching the hands of people that need it the most.
Let’s keep things in proper perspective and let the adults in the room acknowledge and accept the fact that poverty and crime go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly, and because the Sheriff’s education and training gives me confidence in his leadership, I wholeheartedly believe that he is the right leader at the right time that is filling a void in leadership not only in Los Angeles County but beyond.
With that being said I’m cautiously optimistic that the State Attorney General’s office is looking into Sheila Keuhl’s and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors dubious dealing but I would be remiss if I didn’t ask when will Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon launch his own investigation into Sheila Keuhl? He most likely won’t because he’s too close to her alleged co-conspirators. they put him in office as a shield just like Jackie Lacey served. Only difference is people weren’t actually voting for Gascon, they were voting against Lacey. They pushing the same play with Villanueva and Robert Luna. Lets make the public so mad they have no choice but to vote for Luna and with the LA Times running the point…
In closing, I think we all can collectively say that the “cleaning of house” so to speak has been long overdue because the ineptitude and inaction of these politicians, who are driven by greed has rendered Los Angeles County to the point of lawlessness and chaos and it appears more and more with revelations from your website and the applied public pressure that comes with transparency has forced the “powers that be” to act and I can take some momentary comfort with that.
