Judge Suzanne Kinsburry

Judge Kingsbury is most certainly one of the most corrupted judges in the state why hasn’t the DOJ investigated them yet? what will it take?

They are on a path of certain destruction, by malicious prosecution, attorney malpractice, falsifying, withholding, and planting evidence is their specialty are they getting kickbacks from the prison industry from all the innocent people they send to prison?

When you appeal and complain your appeal is supposed to go to an independent panel of 3 judges but it is sent back to the same judge who tried the case? They sent my son to prison for 6 years for protecting himself on his own property from a man with a gun trying to kill him? Was this guy with a gun Assistant DA Robin Anthony Sears’s best friend? why did they falsify and withhold evidence, why was malicious prosecution and personal grudges allowed? Why are Public Defenders like Lori London sabotaging their own clients cases? What the hell is going on here? Why wont anyone do anything about it????????? I seriously want answers!!!!!

=====

South Lake Tahoe Superior Court is the most corrupt court in California they have sent thousands of innocent people to prison, when these people appeal instead of the appeals going through an independent panel of 3 it goes straight back to the corrupt judge who tried the case, corruption abounds my son was sentenced to 6 years without the possibility of parole and sabotaged by his own public defender for protecting himself in his own front yard when an armed criminal came to kill him how the hell is that justice? My son had just turned 18 the attacker was 24 Tony Sears withheld and falsified evidence and maliciously prosecuted my son on a personal grudge Mr. Sears admitted to our Attorney we had to hire after Lori London sabotaged her own clients case she told us to shut up stop sending her evidence, stop calling her that my son was going to prison for 6 years and there was nothing we could do about it, that was after his arraignment where she objected and when asked on what grounds she laughed out loud and said I don’t know? If you live in Tahoe GET OUT do whatever you have to leave that evil place before you find yourself in prison for protecting yourself from an armed criminal who happens to be friends with the Assistant DA very dangerous corrupt town!!!!

You can stop corruption

2015-12-07, 03:27:23 PLACERVILLE CA
Clean Government advocates uniting under the newly formed “Neighbors Against Corruption” served embattled Auditor-Controller Joe Harn and District Attorney Vern Pierson with a Notice of Intention to Recall under California Elections Code division 11, Article 2, triggering a recall petition drive.  Under State law, recall proponents must formally serve targeted elected officials with a legal notice that includes legitimate reasons or grounds for removal from office.
The proponents cited the following grounds for the removal of Harn:
— Failure to make authorized payments for reasons of personal and political motivation in violation of California State Government Code Sections 424 and 425. (Both felonies)
— Participating in an immoral scheme whereby some County Elected Officials receive non-performance bonuses increasing the amount of both their six figure base salaries and retirement pensions for reasons such as simply being re-elected or possessing the certificates required to hold office.
— Failure to protect the fiscal integrity of the County by willfully refusing to prepare a complete Cost Allocation Plan.
— Failure to produce and submit required County bill payment disclosure reports to the Board of Supervisors in violation of County Ordinance Code Sections 3.16.130 and 3.16.140.
— Engaging in inappropriate conduct including; harassment, bullying, and disrespectful conduct towards County employees, vendors, and staff of other agencies.
The proponents cited the following grounds for the removal of Pierson:
— Abusing the power and resources of office to pursue criminal prosecutions and civil litigation against innocent persons and businesses for personal and political reasons, such as, generating career building publicity and punishing political enemies.
— Participating in an immoral scheme whereby some County Elected Officials receive non-performance bonuses increasing the amount of both their six figure base salaries and retirement pensions for reasons such as simply being re-elected or possessing the certificates required to hold office.
— Participating in an immoral scheme whereby the District Attorney receives extra pay as “County Chief Technology Officer”, thereby gaining access to all e-mail messages moving through the County internet system including the Public Defender’s Office.
— Abusing court rules to discredit Judges for personal and political reasons.
Recall petitions will be available for circulation in the next few weeks.  Approximately 10,500 valid signatures are required to force a recall election of a County-wide elected official. Proponents also believe that Pierson’s continued failure to prosecute his political ally Harn for felony violations of the State Penal Code will prompt County voters to sign the recall petitions.

South Lake Tahoe City Council censures JoAnn Conner

 

Source: http://southtahoenow.com/story/10/19/2015/south-lake-tahoe-city-council-censures-joann-conner

During a special meeting of the South Lake Tahoe City Council on Monday, October 19, JoAnn Conner was publicly censured, a first of its kind for the City. An overflowing crowd spent over three hours in Council Chambers as comments were made both supporting Conner, and against what they said was “abusive, bullying and intolerant behavior.”

The meeting wasn’t a court proceeding, but at times it may have seemed like one. Conner never spoke during the afternoon, and had her legal representative, former City Attorney Jacqueline Mittelstadt, speak for her. Mittelstadt wanted to postpone the meeting, asking that all parties involved have time to meet and try and work out their differences prior to a public setting.

“We should all get along, but will we? No,” said Mittelstadt. “We may not like what she says, or how she says it, but it isn’t a basis for censure.”

Several issues were brought up, including Conner’s alleged use of inappropriate language when talking about Brooke Laine and others she didn’t agree with, perceived belittlement of people speaking to the Council during meetings and threatening to take away funding from programs that would lead to job loss in the City. Other issues with Conner circled around her dealings with City staff.

Mittelstadt asked for exact dates and people’s names in these instances, but they weren’t given to her.

“It’s not against the law to be a jerk or a bully,” said Mittelstadt. “Bad behavior is not illegal and is not the basis of censure.”

There were two items on the agenda. Besides censure, the Council voted 4-1 to ratify the actions of City Manager Nancy Kerry to make all communication between Conner and City staff to go through her. The approved resolutions don’t take away any of Conner’s rights, just impacts the way she can handle herself with employees. It prevents Conner from talking directly to City staff, and that all communication she wants with them must go through Kerry.

Cole said City employees were being subject to a hostile work environment because of the way Conner speaks with them, an accusation she has denied. He, along with other councilmembers, said they didn’t want the City to be in a position of being sued due to Conner’s behavior towards staff.

Mayor Hal Cole said he couldn’t sit by and let employees of the City be treated poorly by Conner.

City Council members cannot give directives towards staff, otherwise they’d be pulled in five different directions besides what their supervisors tells them, said Cole. Part of Kerry’s job is to be the middle person, and listen to complaints from Council, and then address it with staff.

“I didn’t want to get to this point today,” said Mayor Cole. “I have witnessed you conduct yourself in public for many years,” he said to Conner. “After our first formal discussion in February at the retreat you promised to change, and you seemed sincere. We have witnessed a return of that behavior.”

He was referring to a workshop the council had on February 21, 2015. During that retreat relationships between City and staff were discussed. Cole said that during that workshop Conner agreed to no longer behave abusively towards partner agencies, City staff, and other Councilmembers.

The censure resolution says Conner: has been disrespectful and discourteous; has detracted from the orderly, efficient and fair conduct of the City’s business; has been abusive to employees, Councilmembers and the public given the standing as an elected public official; has not served to increase the public confidence in the City government; and has not been in keeping with the heightened norms and standards of conduct required of Councilmembers.

During the meeting, letters were read from former City Councilmembers Brooke Laine and Angela Swanson, both of whom said they were the recipients of Conner’s hostility towards them, name calling and disrespect.

“You have brought this upon yourself,” Laine said to Conner in her letter. “I wish today could have been avoided.”

Cole described two instances where Conner didn’t treat Laine with the respect due a co-Councilmember. Right after Laine became Mayor Pro-Tem, he said Conner switched the nameplates of the elected officials up on the dais so she wouldn’t have to sit next to Laine. He also said she didn’t invited Laine to participate in her parade, though all others were invited.

While the letters received by the City Clerk were in favor of the censure, the majority of the attendees at the meeting were there in support of Conner or against the fact that the City Council was discussing censuring one of their own. Several clapped when supporters of Conner were finished at the speaker’s podium.

Seen often as a proponent for the “little guy and small business owner,” many of them joined in support of Conner.

“This matter doesn’t belong in the public arena,” said former Councilmember John Cefalu. “Can now expect a fractured City Council.” Cefalu said the voters voted Conner in, so leave it up to the voters to judge her.

What was called a public flogging by one, Kenny Curtzwiler added we “shouldn’t air our dirty laundry in public.”

“We shouldn’t embarrass our City this way,” added Curtzwiler. “JoAnn has always looked out for this community.”

“I think think this meeting shouldn’t be taking place,” said Mick Clarke. “It’s disgraceful.”

Former City Councilman Bruce Grego also spoke. “When you’re in the minority, you have to speak up and fight more against the majority,” he said. “This is a dangerous precedent. Be heroes for the community and let this go.”

“It isn’t the messenger, it’s the message,” said Cole. That was echoed by the other Councilmembers as well. Tom Davis, Wendy David and Austin Sass also spoke to Conner during the proceedings.

Each Councilmember spoke before the vote, which ended up 4-1 in favor of the Resolution of Censure.

“It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it,” said Davis. “We need to cooperate and work together. I’m sick and tired of this issue and its taken too much time.” He asked Conner to step up and admit error so they could all move on.

“People appreciate what you’ve done and that you reach out to them,” said Mayor Pro-Tem David. “I am very sad, and very angry that we have to be here. I wish we could have addressed this behind closed doors.”

“If your voice is not heard because people don’t want to work with you,” said Sass. “Then the citizens lose.”

There were publicly read letters from LTCC President Dr. Kindred Murillo and El Dorado County Supervisor Sue Novasel, both of whom said it was very hard to work with Conner. While Murillo said she’d experienced a “dressing down” by Conner and about how important it is to speak to people in a respectful manner, Novasel said her staff shouldn’t be subjected to the treatment they’ve received from Conner.

In a written response to what happened to today, Conner sent the following to South Tahoe Now: “Today was a sad day for South Lake Tahoe. Whether you like my style or not, I was elected by nearly 2,400 voters. The City Council stated they had ‘six’ complaints from employees, the City Manager stated she had ‘more’ and ‘more’ and ‘more’…but absolutely no concrete evidence was ever provided before the hearing, nor during the hearing. The conduct that was alluded to, or the few examples complained of amounted to lawful expressions of my opinions. The City Manager and the Council have decided they have the right to take away the power of the people’s vote. Approximately forty citizens were present, and a number objected, but they were scolded by Hal Cole and then ignored by the rest of Council two of whom read pre-prepared speeches into the record.”

Not knowing what to expect during the meeting Monday, law enforcement was at the meeting. Two deputies from the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office were in the Council Chambers, along with one South Lake Tahoe Police Sergeant who was in filling in for Chief Brian Uhler. The deputies were there since Uhler and other police officers were escorting the remains of Mark Hounsell, the officer who died along with his wife and a friend in a vehicle accident on Saturday.

The war within

PaulFolivi

Day in and day out, we are faced with a struggle within. A part of us wants to do what we are morally aware of as right and the other part wants to do what we feel would give us the satisfaction of the time. It is mostly a struggle for an apparent liberty from rules and regulations.

As Christians, that war is our survival mode. Upon us being born again, we became transformed from within with a new heart. Our Spirits became conditioned to always do the right thing. Our Spirits have been reborn to please God. We are spiritually aware of who we are. Deep within, we want to embrace that righteousness instilled in us. We have however been facing a problem. The problem doesn’t reside in that Spiritual instinct we have or that connection to God we have but the state of our souls.

Our souls have…

The Elf On The Shelf Is Preparing Your Child To Live In A Future Police State, Professor Warns

Whatshotn

For some, the Elf on the Shelf doll, with its doe-eyed gaze and cherubic face, has become a whimsical holiday tradition — one that helpfully reminds children to stay out of trouble in the lead-up to Christmas

Elfs-on-the-Shelf-WHATSHOTNFor others — like, say, digital technology professor Laura Pinto — the Elf on the Shelf is “a capillary form of power that normalizes the voluntary surrender of privacy, teaching young people to blindly accept panoptic surveillance and” [deep breath] “reify hegemonic power.” I mean, that’s obvious, right?

The latter perspective is detailed in “Who’s the Boss,” a paper published by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, in which Pinto and co-author Selena Nemorin argue that the popular seasonal doll is preparing a generation of children to uncritically accept “increasingly intrusive (albeit whimsically packaged) modes of surveillance.”

Before you burst out laughing, know that Pinto comes across as extremely friendly and not at all paranoid on the phone…

Psycho DA Vern Pierson is Getting Recalled Along with Ogre Joe Harn

Dec092015

 

Please note: Rumor has it Vern Pierson has endorsed a candidate in the AD06 race. However she has not posted it on her website yet, I wonder why?

For those of you that don’t read Right on Daily often – you should know that Vern Pierson is one of my favorite losers. He is up there with a certain non-college graduate Assembly-member with a hyped up resume. (Which may explain Pierson’s affinity for another such candidate – but I digress)

Joe Harn is legendary for his temper and abuse of staff. Vern Pierson is a loser District Attorney who abuses his office to get what he wants and also let a felony domestic abuser walk because it did not suit him to prosecute. Friends of Pierson get hand-slaps. Enemies of Pierson get assaulted with his abuse of the legal system.

Don’t forget that both Harn and Pierson rake in thousands in “Bonuses” over and above their bloated annual paychecks for abusing the taxpayers. Should you ever meet them, don’t bother shaking their hand – they both seem to have forgotten how to grip a handshake. (an Amazing irony, given they are a couple bullies)

Please note – the above is called commentary. I think the above of Harn / Pierson and am not alone. Eventually everyone else in El Dorado County will agree with me. Or, they could just resign and the beatings will stop.

Attached is a Press Release from a group seeking to cut Vern’s Hair a little shorter and to give Joe Harn some anger management counseling:

EDC DA Vern Pierson Blames a Single Person for His Recall

Kill the Messenger

2015-12-04, 09:50:55 PLACERVILLE CA

In a stunning response to a community driven recall of El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson, the DA singles out one person as the blame for his recall as he avoids responding to any of the complaints in the recall document.  On its face it looks like an attack without merit that is intended to divert attention away from the issues that have prompted the recall.  The DA has decided to attack the most visible person, Cris Alarcon.  Alarcon has publicly objected to what he calls the DA’s “politicization” of an non-partisan law enforcement office for purposes of advantaging his political friends and damaging his political enemies.

When asked about the DA’s attack on his character Alarcon said, “It is laughable and flattering.  That Vern has elevated me to such status is odd since I have no real power other than the ability to communication with over 25,000 local residents nearly every day.  I guess it is really the power of information that Vern fears and his attack on me makes that clear,” said Alarcon.

“The utter absurdity of an ad hominem attack to defend himself from criticism of how he runs his office is an indication of the poor logic facilities of our DA, or of how little he thinks of the citizen’s.  I have never complained about the driving ticket and this is simply Vern’s attempt to divert attention away from his real problems, his own behavior. These are just diversions to avoid answering the complaint: his abuse of the office; his subversion of the voter’s will; the failure to prosecute his friends like Auditor Joe Harn or a hand-slap for Jeremy Meyers’ first DUI.  I will stand by my criticism of Vern but he will need to expand his ad hominem attack to include a nurse, a restaurant owner, a miner, at least two other elected officials, and even a sitting Superior Court Judge.”

Asked about how he will respond to the personal attack Alarcon responded, “I will not let this diversionary tactic work.  Not only will I publish my FPPC complaint about his factual lies in this official document, I will also publicize my soon to be filed civil complaint about the intentional lies and misrepresentations made in this political document. But I will do that separately. I am not spotless by any means but I take pride in my total works and only ask that others do as I do, judge people by their fruits.”  He adds that in the mean time he wanted to be the first to publish this letter from the DA and let the public draw their own conclusions. He added that, “it is a false narrative but over the course of years I have learned that the DA has no positive injunction to tell the truth.”

Here is the letter unedited:

For almost 9 years it’s been my honor to serve as your District Attorney. The men and women of El Dorado County Law Enforcement continue to admirably serve the People of this county. I am particularly proud of everyone in the District Attorney’s office. From holding murderers and other criminals accountable to building one of the first paperless prosecutor offices, they are second to none. Criminals however, don’t like to be held to account. 

After serving as chair of the county charter review committee Chris Alarcon was stopped by a Sheriff’s deputy. Alarcon gave the deputy an Arizona license and claimed to be an Arizona resident. The plate tag on his car was stolen from his elderly neighbor. His wife admitted he did it to avoid license and registration. My office convicted him of multiple charges including receiving stolen property, driving on a revoked license and false registration. Last year I was re-elected by a margin of 3 to 1. My opponent, a Placer County resident claimed to live with Alarcon. 

http://www.abc10.com/story/news/local/eldorado-hills/2014/03/17/el-dorad…

Now this vengeful criminal seeks to waste thousands of your tax dollars on this bogus recall campaign. Don’t be conned by this criminal! 

Filed with the Elections Department on Nov. 30, 2015 by District Attorney Vern Pierson in response to a recall filing.

Deputies kill bear near South Lake Tahoe


El Dorado County sheriff’s deputies on the morning of Dec. 2 shot and killed what they called an aggressive bear.

Deputies said a 700- to 800-pound bear in the area of Minniconjou and Susquehana drives on the outskirts of South Lake Tahoe had been disrupting the neighborhood for several weeks by breaking into multiple residences.

Loud noises and less lethal beanbag rounds were unsuccessfully used to shoo the bear away.

Deputies said when the bear moved aggressively toward them that is when they shot it.

In the past year, deputies responded to 177 bear related calls, of which 23 were located in the same neighborhood as Wednesday’s incident. All but this one was resolved with the use of non-lethal measures.

Calls have been left with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to find out if this is the same bear that was found in Meyers and taken to Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care.
