Former Compton Mayor Omar Bradley is in the June 8th runoff. His opponent is the current Mayor Aja Brown. He is also fighting the LA County District Attorney’s office who appears to be blowing smoke up Compton voters butts. Unfortunately, they’re not paying attention.
This author came across this meme on Facebook. It was posted by the “Compton Watchdog” who is alleged to be a city employee. The meme poses the question, “why is Omar Bradley running for office while awaiting charges for misappropriation of funds?”
Bradley will appear in Superior Court today fighting charges from 15 years ago, despite the CA Supreme Court throwing out his conviction, which enables him to run. His record contains no felonies.
2 Urban Girls remembers the DA’s office using this exact argument in 2013. The people should see this court case as the sham it is.
Are we to believe the DA’s office is that inept that they couldn’t have closed this case years ago, unless there is no case to begin with?
A good example of the court system running a Black man into the ground, with endless court dates, with NO conviction is Kalief Browder in New York.
He was held in prison for three years, spanning dozens of court dates, to be released citing “no witness”. He was 16.
The Black District Attorney and countless Black judges kept returning Kalief to solitary confinement, over two years of his three years being incarcerated. Despite this, the DA won reelection.
The District Attorney’s office should be admonished by the Board of Supervisors for wasting taxpayers money and the misprosecution of a Black man. There is one Black person on the five body board.
The DA is Black too.
Do we really need people in positions who look like us, if this is how they will treat those who look like them?
Where’s Aunty Maxine? Compton needs you.
