Garcetti reduce velocidad en las calles con la iniciativa Vision Zero

Bereavision TV Los Angeles, CA.- El propósito principal no es colectar dinero por las infracciones, señaló Garcetti, sino salvar vidas y reducir los accidentes por exceso de velocidad a cero.

En conferencia de prensa realizada en el Bulevar Washington a una cuadra del Bulevar Crenshaw, -dos arterias muy transitadas en Los Angeles-, el alcalde Eric Garcetti anunció la reducción de los límites de velocidad para 71 calles de la ciudad de Los Ángeles.

La ley del estado exige un estudio de los limites de velocidad, para esto la administración del alcalde encargó esta complicada tarea al Departamento de Transporte de Los Ángeles (LADOT). Como resultado de estas encuestas de velocidad realizadas recientemente por LADOT, se han hecho varios cambios para hacer una actualización de los limites de velocidad que ya están en vigencia en el 98.4% de la red de calles con mayor incidencia de colisiones severas y fatales; también llamada en ingles como “High Injury Network (HIN)”.

queremos que los angelinos estén al pendiente de estos cambios, los cuales la policía de Los Angeles aplicarán, para que siempre conduzcan con cuidado, hay 26 calles en la ciudad cuyos limites de velocidad han subido y 45 cuyos limites han bajado. Estamos implementando estos cambios porque queremos corregir el problema que ha causado accidentes y fatalidades en Los Angeles…, afirmó el alcalde Eric Garcetti en rueda de prensa a las 8:45am.

Entre los participantes que se presentaron en podio estuvo el concejal Mike Bonin, que señaló que las estadísticas de accidentes están aumentando y la iniciativa de “Vision Zero” es la manera de reducir la incidencia en las calles.

En este esfuerzo de la “Iniciativa Cero”, el Departamento de Policía LAPD, puso en su presupuesto 2017-18 apartar $1.5 millones en fondos de horas extras para hacer cumplir los nuevos límites de velocidad en la red de calles denominada HIN.

De aquí en adelante los residentes de Los Angeles podrán ver los cambios en los letreros de velocidad máxima en las calles y oficiales de policía que estarán revisando con radar la velocidad de los automóviles con mayor frecuencia. Gracias a estos cambios que se han realizado; 26 calles tendrán límites de velocidad aumentados y 45 calles tendrán sus límites de velocidad reducidos.

L.A. woman in videotaped arrest files excessive force lawsuit

Mar 28, 2013

LOS ANGELES – A Sunland woman who accused two Los Angeles police officers of using excessive force during a videotaped arrest at a fast food restaurant parking lot last year has filed a lawsuit against the city.

Michelle Jordan brought the suit Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court. She alleges excessive force, assault and battery, false imprisonment and negligent hiring, training and retention. She also names as defendants the two officers, Christopher Hajduk and Christopher Carr, and Capt. Joseph Hiltner, who at the time was commander of the Foothill Division.

The suit states that Hajduk is believed to be “one of the officers present during the LAPD’s beating of Rodney King in 1991.”

Jordan is seeking unspecified damages. An LAPD spokesman today declined to comment on the lawsuit.

The registered nurse, then 34, was stopped in a Del Taco parking lot near Foothill Boulevard and Saluda Avenue in Tujunga around 11:15 a.m. last Aug. 21 for allegedly using a cellphone while driving.

Police said Jordan got out of her car and was taken to the ground and handcuffed. After she was handcuffed, she was taken to the ground a second time. The video shows one of the officers landing on top of her during the second takedown.

Jordan was arrested and booked on suspicion of interfering and resisting arrest, and then released on her own recognizance, police said.

According to her lawsuit, Jordan was on her way to pick up her grandmother from a nearby hospital. She never threatened either officer, according to her suit.

“Without cause or justification, the officers grabbed Ms. Jordan and slammed her to the pavement,” her suit states. “The officers then laid on top of Ms. Jordan, forced her arms behind her and handcuffed her. After she was handcuffed, (the) officers picked Ms. Jordan up off the ground and shoved her against the side of their police car.”

After Jordan complained about the treatment, the officers then slammed her down to the pavement again, this time head first, according to her lawsuit. They used such force that skin was “torn off her face, neck and shoulders, and she sustained internal injuries to her abdomen and spine,” the suit states.

“Ms. Jordan was terrified for her life and in a state of utter shock,” the suit states.

After a bloodied Jordan was placed in the back of the patrol car, the officers “engaged in a jovial fist bump celebrating their beating of a defenseless young woman,” the suit states.

Unknown to the patrolmen, their acts were recorded by a parking lot security camera, according to the suit.

Jordan was later held for 6 1/2 hours, but never prosecuted, the suit states.

Jordan now has bulging discs in her spinal column and facial scars, the suit states.

“She experiences recurring nightmares about the beating and has fear and anxiety about her safety,” according to the suit. “The mere sight of police or police vehicles now creates such anxiety for Mr. Jordan that she suffers panic attacks.”

Last September, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck removed Hiltner from command of the Foothill Division and initiated a process to demote him.

“Proper steps were not taken, including appropriate notifications and the removal of the involved officers from the field,” Beck said.

Hiltner’s attorney said the demotion was in response to his involvement in an earlier, unrelated harassment case against another LAPD captain who was eventually exonerated.

Hiltner later filed a complaint with the state Department of Fair Employment and Housing.

Dorner suicide prevents reward money going to kidnap, carjack victims who alerted police

Mar 25, 2013

LOS ANGELES  – While the manhunt for fired LAPD Officer Christopher Dorner was in progress last month, rewards in excess of $1 million were offered in connection with the case, but some groups that pledged money are reconsidering, saying their criteria were not met, it was reported today.

Two claims have been made on the money since Dorner’s death Feb. 12 — by a couple near Big Bear who were tied up and whose car was stolen, and by a man whose pickup truck Dorner later hijacked.

However, some who pledged money have said they offered the reward for information that would have led to the arrest and conviction of Dorner, neither of which occurred, the Los Angeles Times reported. Dorner committed suicide while cornered in a burning cabin near Big Bear.

The Los Angeles Police Department, responding to the arguments donors have made publicly, said the money should be paid.

Much of the confusion surrounding the conditions of the reward began with the language used by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa in his announcement of a $1 million reward.

Donors specified that the money they pledged was for Dorner’s arrest and conviction. But Villaraigosa broadened it to “capture” in his public remarks — and some have argued that the word could be interpreted to include Dorner’s being surrounded in a cabin before he committed suicide, The Times reported.

Police believe Dorner went on a 10-day killing rampage of revenge against law enforcement officials whom he blamed for his 2009 firing from the force. He is thought to have killed Riverside Police Officer Michael Crain; San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeremiah MacKay; Monica Quan, the daughter of a retired LAPD captain; and Quan’s fiance, Keith Lawrence.

Washington DEA, LAPD arrest 41 in 2-state Oxycontin drug ring

Mar 1, 2013

LOS ANGELES – Dozens of people were arrested Thursday in the Los Angeles area and in Washington state for their alleged role in a drug ring peddling the pain medication  Oxycontin, authorities said.

“Members of this ring regularly circulate between Los Angeles and Spokane to fuel their customers’ insatiable appetite and pharmaceutical addiction,” said Matthew G. Barnes of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Seattle office.

In the Los Angeles area, authorities arrested 28 people on federal charges, two of whom were already in custody on state charges. In Washington state, 12 people were arrested on federal charges in Spokane, and one was arrested in Mountlake Terrace.

Also, three people were arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department on state arrest warrants in a “separate but related investigation,” officials said.

The names of the suspects were not immediately released.

“Today’s operation is another fine example of the outstanding partnerships that have been forged between agencies who are committed to ridding our communities of violent organized criminals who prey on our city,” LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said. The enforcement action stemmed from a 32-count federal indictment handed down in the Eastern District of Washington in January. The indictment charges numerous people with criminal violations relating to the distribution, possession and attempted possession of oxycodone hydrochloride in violation of the Federal Controlled Substances Act.

Some of the people named in the indictment face potential mandatory minimum sentences of 20 years in prison, officials said. Also, federal authorities have filed a notice of criminal forfeiture seeking a money judgment of $20 million, which is alleged to represent the amount of proceeds obtained as a result of the charged controlled substances offenses.

$ 1 million reward for ex-LAPD officer

Feb 11, 2013

LOS ANGELES  – The Los Angeles Police Department today lifted a tactical alert that allowed supervisors to keep officers past their shifts in connection with the search for suspected three-time killer Christopher Jordan Dorner, but motorcycle officers were ordered to continue doing their patrolling in cars to guard against them being picked off by the embittered ex-cop.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa Sunday announced a  $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the 33-year-old Dorner, saying it had been raised from “business, unions, government, law enforcement and community groups.” Police Chief Charlie Beck, who says the reward was his wife’s idea, called it “the largest award ever offered locally.”

Dorner last Sunday allegedly gunned down the daughter and future son-in- law of the ex-police captain who represented him at a hearing that resulted in his dismissal from the Los Angeles Police Department. The bodies of 28-year-old college basketball coach Monica Quan and her fiance, 27-year-old Keith Lawrence, were found in a parked car in Irvine.

The next day, Dorner allegedly posted a 6,000-word manifesto on Facebook, vowing to kill several LAPD officers he named and their families. Fifty Los Angeles police officers and their families are being watched, authorities said.

On Thursday, Dorner was involved in a shootout with Los Angeles police guarding an officer’s home in Corona, leaving an LAPD officer with a graze wound to the head, police said. About 20 minutes later, he allegedly fired on a pair of Riverside police officers stopped at a red light, killing one and wounding the other.     Riverside police Sunday identified the slain officer as 34-year-old Michael Crain, an ex-Marine survived by his wife, Regina, and two children, Ian, 10, and Kaitlyn, 4. Crain left “an unforgettable impression” on everyone he met, Riverside police Lt. Guy Toussaint said.

Crain’s funeral is set for Wednesday.

The search for Dorner, meanwhile, continues to include the area around Big Bear, where he abandoned his pickup truck and set it afire Thursday, but it has been scaled back.

An LAPD tactical alert that had been in effect over the weekend was lifted about 7 a.m. today, the LAPD reported. However, motorcycle patrols remained suspended by the LAPD as a security measure, according to the department.

Beck said Sunday that the crimes attributed to Beck in the past week amounted to “an act of domestic terrorism,” and Villaraigosa said the region rejects being placed under a “reign of terror.”

“This is a man who has targeted those that we entrust to protect the public. This is not about capturing a suspect, this is about preventing a future attack, maybe a murder,” Beck said.

Donors to the $1 million award for information leading to Dorner’s arrest and conviction included police officers associations in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, Irvine, Long Beach and the Port of Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Staples Center’s AEG contributed, as did the United Firefighters of Los Angeles, the Association of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputies, the FBI, First Watch, the city and county of Riverside and six anonymous donors.

Funeral for assassinated Riverside officer scheduled

Feb 9, 2013

RIVERSIDE – The name of the Riverside police officer apparently slain by a vengeful Los Angeles officer still cannot be revealed, even as funeral plans are being finalized, police said today.

The name of the 11-year veteran could be released by Monday night, said Lt. Guy Toussaint, the department’s public information officer, in an interview with City News Service.

Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz requested that the fallen officer’s name be withheld by news media while the whereabouts of Christopher Jordan Dorner were unknown. Dorner is suspected of killing the officer in an assassination-style attack at a Riverside intersection Thursday.

The dead officer’s partner remained hospitalized today, with serious injuries and stable life signs, Toussaint told CNS. His name has also been withheld.

Funeral services were scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Grove Community Church, 19900 Grove Community Drive. That church was also the site of services for slain Riverside police Officer Ryan Patrick Bonaminio in November 2010.

Like that ceremony, the entire Riverside police force will turn out for Wednesday’s funeral, complete with an honor guard procession that will bear the 34-year-old patrolman’s casket to Riverside National Cemetery for internment.

While the police department pays homage to its slain brother, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is expected to handle all emergency calls in the city.   The unnamed officer was killed during an attack at the intersection of Arlington and Magnolia avenues around 1:30 a.m. Thursday. Both he and his partner, identified only as a 27-year-old officer on a training detail, were struck in the upper bodies, according to Diaz.

Diaz described the shootings as a “cowardly ambush.”

Donations are being accepted to assist the family of the murdered officer. All checks should be made out to Riverside Police Officers Association Assistance Fund, or RPOA, and mailed to 1965 Chicago Ave., Suite B, Riverside, Calif. 92507.
