A NATURAL OR UNNATURAL ACT?

The right not to be deprived of liberty without due process of law; The right to be free from invasion or interference with Plaintiff’s zone of privacy; The right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures; The right to freedom of speech; The right to freedom of association; The right to petition for redress of grievances; The right to equal protection of the law; The right to be free from police use of excessive force;  The right to be free from discriminatory law enforcement; and the right to be free from arrest without probable cause.  These are rights secured by the Constitution of the United States for all American citizens.  Attorney Letitia Pepper states that the Mayor, City Attorney and Chief of Police acted with design and intention, to deprive her of these secured Constitutional rights.

In Pepper’s Federal law suit, she is suing the City of Riverside; named individually are Chief of Police Sergio Diaz, City Attorney Gregory Priamos and Mayor William “Rusty” Bailey.

Pepper also believes this letter started it all, sent to the Mayor two weeks before being arrested which ask him for a public apology.  TMC back in June 26, 2013 asked the same question: WAS THIS THE LETTER WHICH RUFFLED THE MAYOR’S FEATHERS?

On June 13, 2013, the above document was handed to Mayor Bailey in demand for a public apology for unlawful and discourteous actions at Council Chambers June 11, 2013.  Twelve days later at City Council, Ms. Pepper was arrested for clapping at the order of the Mayor, via a Citizens Arrest Complaint Form.  At the time, Ms. Pepper was representing three citizens, Vivian Moreno, Joel Udayke and Dvonne Pitruzzello regarding his position on no applauding during public comment.  Was this in fact, a personal vendetta against former BB&K Attorney, Letitia Pepper by Mayor Bailey? Why was Ms. Pepper targeted for removal and arrest my Mayor Rusty Bailey, when there were multiply clappers?  Why weren’t the other clappers removed and arrested?  Is this the Mayor’s attempt to control public participation in government?  Is the arrest a show of force in an attempt to intimidate the public not to participate in government?  At that time, Mayor Bailey has passed the 10 day response time.  To this day we’ve yet to hear a response or statement from Mayor Bailey regarding this letter.  As public servants, it’s a general consensus to respond back to your constituents as a standard practice.  Not to respond, only reflects back to those in elected leadership positions.

But I guess the questions many are asking these days, even those who voted for Rusty, why did he decide to take this position?  Many residents have said, they feel the city will retaliate against them if something derogatory is said regarding city politics.  So why is it, that the residents feel this way?  Our elects really out of touch?  But TMC is finding that the answer may be deeply rooted familial history of Riverside, whereby a conglomerate of politically tied families made the rules, and is the basis for politics in the City of Riverside, which of course includes the Bailey family.  You have Mayor William Rusty Bailey’s father, who is  judge, then you have the fathers friend who was a founder,  incidently,  of Best, Best & Krieger.  You also have the familial connection with Albert Webb Engineering and Chris Mac Arthur Family.  Halleluah, are we actually coming to the answers of why the City of Riverside is the way it is politically?

judge

In this pic we see Bailey’s father, Judge William R. Bailey II, with now Mayor William “Rusty” Bailey (middle) , and Judge John Gabbert.  Judge Gabbert has a history going back to the 40’s which answers the question of why the City of Riverside uses Best, Best and Krieger so much..  We can ask the question of why millions of dollars uncontracted outside legal is directed to BB&K?  What you are seeing folks, is a family run city, as what we would see in the South, which benefits a few.

hist_gabbert

Judge John Gabbert, in younger days, a Quandrangle of Influence within the City of Riverside?  What is the connection between Best, Best & Krieger and the City of Riverside?  What is taking that hold on Riverside that has everything to do with old family influences?  You get my drift, I wouldn’t attempt to try this case on the constitutionality of ‘clapping’ within the City of Riverside.

TWO CITIZEN ARREST COMPLAINTS MADE: ONE BY THE MAYOR, THE OTHER BY ATTORNEY LETITIA PEPPER.  RPD ACTS ON THE MAYORS, BUT REFUSES TO ACT ON PEPPER’S.  UNEQUAL APPLICATION OF THE LAW?

    Riverside taxpayers have had a tuff time with elected officials as it continues. Most educated Americans know the Constitutional Rights founded by our Nation. The new Mayor, City Attorney and DA Zellerbach feel they can violate the law. A citizen name Karen arrested for speaking over 3 mins. as it was not a city law at the time but because the Mayor did not want to hear what she was saying she was arrested. Interesting how the Council quickly changed the city rule after Karen’s arrest. As we got to watch President Obama had the respect to allow a citizen voice their view as the right to all citizens. Well the video seen World Wide as even relatives in Florida called me saying they saw it on the news. Well Pepper was a target. She clapped liked others did but again the Mayor/City Attorney felt it was not accepted by her but no problem with others. Well DA Zellerbach worked with the Mayor/City Attorney on ignoring the violation. Riverside taxpayers will again pay for large legal settlements because of the crimes of elected officials. We paid millions to police officers as Councilmen Adams decided to violate the law. Now the Mayor/City Attorney and DA are assuring legal settlement. Maybe we can elect a Mayor and Council that follows the law and looks to the interest of the citizens.

    I think ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! Riversiders need to TAKE BACK their City! Our First Amendment rights have been violated. Dictatorship telling us when or when NOT to …clap?(Pepper) When or when NOT to speak?(Wright) When or when NOT we can help our friends when they are in trouble? (To help a disabled friend up-Police interference)

    If it wasn’t for those that are willing to speak at City Council meetings, they are the ones that are fighting for Riversiders’ rights! Thank you!

    Recently, the City Council voted 4/2 to increase the sewer rates on all of Riverside! Most people
    are busy with their lives and “trust” that they voted someone in whom would look after their best interests. (Gardner, MacArthur, Perry, Adams against Davis and Soubirous (Melendrez was absent). But, once they get their present “Utility bill for 7/1” sewer rate increases for 5 years, they will either complain or succumb to this political pressure. I hope they will start being proactive or support those that are being proactive in the City that they love!

    I support Councilman Paul Davis request for a State independent audit!
    I support the RECALL of Jim Perry(Ward 6)!! And, the rest that voted for this increase!

    If you feel patriotic this weekend, keep that feeling, and invest it in taking back YOUR City!

    “TAKE BACK RIVERSIDE!”

    For you, your family, and your heirs!!
