  1. So grateful for this sensible debunking of what has now become urban legend. Since Tanaka has been mayor of the City of Gardena, their budget has a surplus and they’ve upgraded the streets and have many successful businesses thriving there. The Indictments, I think, are just blowback from Lee Baca’s tenure as Sheriff and I hope he’s exonerated of any wrongdoing by the Federal investigation. Seems they want to throw him under the bus for a cultural bias that has been a part of the Sheriff Department’s ways since the days of the late, Sherman Block, anyway. The explanation is sound as is his years with the department. But sensationalism type journalism will latch on to anything as long as it gets front page for the writer, thus good journalism has, apparently, taken back seat to getting the facts straight and not trying to showboat, as many of today’s aspiring journalist seems bent upon, as of late. This includes many of the inexperienced digital online “journalists” of today, many of whom seem nothing more than “hacks” trying to come up in the organization. Bryan Williams is a good example of what can happen when you violate journalistic integrity for headlines that sell. Good job, 2 UrbanGirls, once again. You’ve become my new “snopes” of the digital wild west now. Congrats on a good job getting to the facts, the real ones, about this man who experienced much in his career. Much better than the LAT’s on this one. A story their editorial department will never put front page or anywhere, apparently. “If it bleeds, it leads” seems, still, the mantra of many in the so-called, field of journalism today, unfortunately. Thanks again. Cheers!
