Can you please publish my comments for your readers.
Dear Mr. Campos,
I am sending this correspondence as I firmly believe that the Mayor and his actions on November 24th , 2021 and prior acts in interrupting public comments are in violation of Brown act and ongoing and concerted efforts by elected officials , including the City Clerk’s office and the Inglewood Police Department to violate my my rights to criticize public officials in violation of the Bain act.
Per my comments yesterday, my public comments were consistent with the agenda Items being discussed, specifically as it relates to the day to day functions of the Inglewood Police Dept and allocation of taxpayer funds.
With that being said it is incomprehensible to accept that either the Mayor or Council , including IPD Police Chief Mark Fronterotta has yet to address the indictment of Inglewood Police Detective John Baca and his subsequent arrest for drug trafficking.
Furthermore, I have grave concerns that Inglewood Police Department is completely compromised in it’s leadership as to date we have 16 murders in this City and you have officers , not to mention City employees in City vehicles that routinely travel out of the jurisdiction of Inglewood , which leads me to believe that the Department is being poorly managed and completely compromised the safety of the general public as a whole.
For example , on or about November 16 , 2021 about 5:00pm I witnessed an Inglewood Police vehicle waiting outside 5700 Centinela ave at the Aleesio Apts waiting outside of the gated area waiting on another vehicle to enter only to follow another vehicle in soon after .
Mr. Campos these issues are relative to allocation of public funds , and oversight of how funds are being spent since you clearly have officers in taxpayer funded vehicles , conducting personal business on taxpayers dollars and my comments along those lines was consistent with the agenda Items being discussed.
Additionally I have further questions as Mayor Butts emphatically denies ever paying Inglewood Police Detective John Baca from his campaign funds, where public documents clearly disputes this lie, as I have attached this document for your review.
As for my issues with the City Clerk and the Inglewood Police Department which have yet to be addressed, I kindly ask that your office, along with the City Manager’s office, kindly expedite my public records request as they have clearly made a choice not to honor my request although they appear willing to do so.
Finally, I kindly ask for you to suggest that you ask the Mayor that he respects and honors his rules of decorum without personal insults, as he is in no position, especially with the known and unknown skeleton’s in his closet to determine one’s mental well being or “happiness”, because one could argue a man married three times, multiple sexual harassment claims, and stalking claims, and his own son being arrested for DUI by the Inglewood Police Department, days after the department was allegedly raided by the FBI, has his own issues he needs to resolve before passing judgement.
In closing, I’m requesting that this comment be added to public records for the public comment portion of today’s meeting.
Thank you.Marvin McCoy
