Per Public Information Officer (aka, City Propaganda Minister) for the City of Riverside, Phil Pitchford:  Larry Gonzalez, a 27-year law enforcement veteran who has spent the past 15 years working his way through the management ranks of the Riverside Police Department, has been named Chief of Police by City Manager Al Zelinka.

“I believe in Larry as Riverside’s Police Chief because of his demonstrated performance to address important matters in the city and his trusted relationships throughout the community, department, and law enforcement agencies,” Zelinka said. “As Chief of Police, Larry has committed to me that he will implement the pillars of 21st Century Policing, evolve the Riverside Police Department to reflect Riverside’s diversity, and carry out organizational refinements around efficiency and effectiveness.”

Gonzalez was chosen after a comprehensive search and an unprecedented amount of community input and a series of interview panels with law enforcement professionals, community leaders and neighborhood groups. The multiple community meetings asked Riversiders what they wanted in their next Police Chief, and their responses were used as criteria for evaluating candidates. The responses also were documented and shared online for the public.

“I appreciate the meaningful input by the community this past fall to define the desired attributes for Riverside’s next police chief,” Zelinka said. “That input framed the whole recruitment effort and was reflected in the composition of the interview panels and the questions asked of the candidates. When making my selection, I took to heart the complete record of information contributed by the community and all participants, as well as the input provided by the candidates themselves.”

Gonzalez has served as Interim Police Chief since mid-September, following the retirement of Chief Sergio Diaz. In that role, he had daily responsibility for 576 employees, including 372 sworn police officers, as well as management of a $135 million budget. His promotion to Chief takes effect Feb. 7.

According to the Press Enterprise, Gonzalez pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of drunken driving in 2013, when he was a police lieutenant. He was sentenced to three years’ probation, in addition to other punishments, after he crashed a city-owned Ford Explorer into a mailbox and retaining wall and recorded a .15 percent blood-alcohol level.  At least we believe in carrying on tradition here in the ole’ River City…

TMC remembers the hi-jinks of Russell Leach, the O.G. of driving while under the influence.  Back in 2010 while intoxicated, Leach hit what appeared to be a city light fixture. When he was finally stopped by RPD, it was noticed that the city owned vehicle he was driving had no tires, and he was driving on just the rims.  According to the charges, Leach consumed 2 tabs of Vicodin (hydrocodone-pain pills), 2 tabs Xanax (alprazolam-anti-anxiety), 2 tabs Ambien (zolpidem-sleeping pills), 1 tab of Flexeril (cyclobenaprine-muscle relaxant), 1 tab Atarax (hydroxyzine-anti-histamine used with opioid analgesics to increase the pain killing ability), 4 cans of Miller Lite and 7 doubles of Chivas Regal Scotch.  Wow!  We’d hate to be his liver! We do have some sympathy for Leach though: we’d probably hit the bottle every night dealing with the likes of Loveridge, Hudson, DeSantis, Priamos, etc., etc. ad infinitum.

And who can forget the topless dancer Leach was embroiled with according to the Press Enterprise.  It all stunk to high heaven with typical Riverside City politics when former City Councilman Frank Schiavone decided to record a tape conversation with the topless dancer.  Then there was the local attempted RPD coverup of the whole fiasco, because as we know all too well: there’s rules for them, and different rules for you.

 

After Leach was put out to pasture (with his luxurious pension paid for by us), in came Police Chief Sergio Diaz, who turned out to be another nut.  He threatened a city council candidate by the name of John Brandriff and was a central figure in the St. Valentine’s Day blunder. What gives with these guys?  Some heroes!

Well the best of luck Larry, congratulations, and I know we look forward to your leadership in the coming year.  And of course, you have our support.

The John Burnard Story, was this a tragic story that had to happen?  Was it inevitable?  It seems it’s an unfortunate exposure to what all Riversidian’s have experienced in are not so great city when it comes to establishment politics.  Riverside’s Own Elitist Organization ‘The Raincross Group,’ the ‘Riverside Chamber of Commerce’ run by no other than Queen Bee Cindy Roth, and her husband, who allegedly padded his law bills to the City of Riverside with no contracts, is now Senator Richard Roth, who prefers to go by…. the Generalissimo … the incomparable General Roth.   A General who does not protect his taxpaying troops, but instead throws his taxpaying troops into the line of fire with increased taxes!  Yep, directly as a result of a bribe by former Governor ‘Moonbeam’ Brown himself to support his efforts, remember the gas tax?  So the question is , was it inevitable that the Riverside church going elitist chose someone as Burnard to replace former Councilman Steve Adams, who also had the alleged issue of domestic violence? Now, from wearing out his welcome with the County of Riverside and San Bernardino, Adams was whole heartily accepted back again to replace Burnard on the Riverside Council seat.

ADAMS ARREST 1994 KANSAS

What seems more relevant is the indoctrination of an individual colleague through alleged coercion.  Councilman Mike Soubirous, even though he received the wrath of the establishment attempting to frame him for an undue crime, he succumbed recently, and in turn voted for Adams to replace Burnard.  Adams who’s legacy will be remembered by allowing his constituents to die do to contaminated soil in his Ward, which he was very much aware of.  A law suit on this matter is being taken up by the Brokovich Firm.

A connection between Councilman Steve Adams and the newly christened candidate John Burnard?  A rigging of an election?

Burnard was destined to be the replacement for Adams by the Riverside Political Elite.  There was no doubt that Burnard’s historical actions were to come to a head.  Was Burnard’s grave error that it didn’t happened in the City of Riverside?  Where the elite and RPD could have made an attempted cover up as they did in the past, as they attempted to do with former Chief of Police Russ Leach?  Some call it s Political Machine.  Some call it the Cultural Elite in action.  Some call it a Culture of Entitlement.  This so called refined group of people are electable not only by default, but by those who have been there historically… those who have been politically ingrained within the political system, hence those who will continue their legacy.

But what concerns me is who knew what and when did they know it?  Well they all did and all are to guilty of perpetrating a culture of covering up each others dirty laundry, while supporting the narrative of truth, family, justice, God and the American way.  What those in the position of power who have benefited from the taxpayer, must ask what their legacy will be.  What will they be remembered for.  Did they do the right thing?  Did they have the courage to do the right thing?  Did they just withered away, and succumbed to the establishment, because it was easier than fighting and sacrificing for the rights of the residents and their tax money.

Riverside Ward 7 Councilman John Burnard with wife Kathy by his side is sworn in to office by The Honorable Cheryl C. Kersey, Superior Court Judge, San Bernardino County Tuesday in Riverside, June 30, 2015.

It’s a real tragedy for this individual, but the real tragedy of is for the taxpayer who always gets the bill.  But it’s typical as you can see with the usual suspects when it comes to the elite ruling class subjects who have given there christening and monies to continue there controlled legacy.  Is the real tragedy about this sequence of events by those who have power and control to chain of events which the end result would be the rigging of an election?  Or is the real tragedy is to support an individual who may not be truly qualified, or is it that they all have known who Burnard really was?  Bottom line, they had to.  Even Developer Henry Cox supported Burnard!

    

Even Developer Henry Cox who supported Burnard admitted Ag Park Parcel he planned for a housing development was contaminated as TMC has indicated in past postings.  What was he hoping to receive in some sort of support from Burnard?  Remember, prior Councilman Steve Adams did nothing. Mayor Bailey did nothing!  Remember that in the next election.

The real tragedy is how the City of Riverside have not been good stewards of the taxpayer money, and have not been good stewards of the utility monies, and have negotiated unsustainable union contracts, and caused legal liabilities.  All because of incompetence, unqualified and greed only to fill their own pockets when the taxpayers weren’t looking.

Is the real game for this elite culture is to provide an illusion of government that works, but doesn’t, simply because it’s under the guise of a democratic representation?  What gives?  Is this a system designed to build a financial treasure chest off the taxpayer for two pensions!  Maybe yes!  What gives?  This is what it seems, make no mistake about it.  One example is our Chief of Police Sergio Diaz, working on his second pension. In the real world this does not occur under any circumstance.  It is simply unsustainable via cost.  to retire early only to work elsewhere

What we have is a group of establishment elite who truly believe they know best, but at the same time creating unsustainable union contracts which down the line, as now, cannot be paid for.  Cities will continue to go bankrupt directly because of this behavior, and the State of California will go bankrupt as a whole.  People and businesses will continue to leave California for this reason leaving them with an economic crash which will not be revitalized.  It is unacceptable to continue to tax the residents for a cartel which has hijacked our government.

The purpose of government was to keep an eyeful watch over taxpayer resources, what is the purpose of government when it only benefits elite public worker pensions and the unions?  It seems that those within the government system are their to fight and protect their own as oppose to protect the very system that employs them.  It seems that that those in the public service realm are their to feed of the taxpayer trough, and to them, it should be vehemently protected, by any means possible.

Feeding Off the Taxpayer Trough?

The Arizona domestic violence trial of former Riverside City Councilman John Powell Burnard, was scheduled for April 9, 2018, has been postponed to July 30, according to Mohave County Superior Court. Burnard, 52 at the time, was arrested July 3, 2017, in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, after witnesses said they saw Burnard choking two women after an argument at a bar; their names were redacted from the police report. Burnard is married.  Burnard pleaded not guilty to two counts of aggravated assault by domestic violence.  One is a Class 4 felony, and the other is a Class 6 felony.  In Arizona, Class 1 is the most serious felony, and Class 6 is the least serious felony.  Was this the dirty little secret the establishment status quo ruling class knew about, but exposed itself in an undue fashion?

UPDATE: According to a August 17, 2019 article by Ryan Hagen in the Press Enterprise, charges were dropped against Burnard.  The County Attorneys Office stated that they lost contact with material witnesses that were necessary to prove the State’s case.  Even though Burnard was ecstatic that the charges were dropped, the County Attorneys Office went on to say that the charges were dropped without prejudice, meaning that Burnard could be charged again until the seven year statue of limitations expires.

Is this what happens when those of the ruling class elite completely self assured that no one else will be elected unless you’ve been given their christening?  Can this be construed as the rigging of an election?  Was this what Soubirous was talking about in this video.

Remember what happened when Soubirous didn’t follow the rules, the ruling status quo elite attempted to frame him on false charges by some members of the Council, the Police Union and the Chief of Police.  We’ve seen this with School Board Member Joseph Barragan to frame and defame through efforts of Gabriela Plascensia, the Teachers Union and even a local Congressman.  We’ve seen this when tax advocate Vivian Moreno worked with former Moreno Valley Mayor Jessie Molina.  We have also seen this with Donald Trump in Washington D.C. with the infamous Russian Hoax and weaponizing are FBI and CIA to spy on presidential candidate.

In the City of Riverside on July 22, 2014, Council held a hearing investigating the Councilman Mike Soubirous regarding charter violations and a claim of a hostile work environment by City Manager Scott Barber and Chief of Police Sergio Diaz.  What was found was that Council actually violated the Brown Act by holding this meeting, and council voted not to vote, except Councilman Perry, who actually voted in favor of violating the Brown Act a second time.  The full circus act is hear for your viewing pleasure below.  This has great similarities of how the Democratic based commissions attempted and continued to frame our President Donald J. Trump.  As I said before this nothing less than a soft coup d’état at a local city level.
