10-08-02 End to Advertising for "Church of Scientology" on Los Angeles Business Examiner Site Requested // Fin a la publicidad de "Iglesia de la Cienciología" en el sitio "Los Angeles Examiner de negocios requerido

Leroy Baca, Sheriff of Los Angeles County
Closely identified with 'Church of Scientology"
Los Angeles, August 2 - Human Rights Alert (NGO) and Joseph Zernik, PhD - Los Angeles Business Examiner, requested that cease advertising for the "Church of Scientology" on the Los Angeles Business Examiner site.
One of the main topics covered at the site was the alleged false imprisonment of the 70 year old former US Prosecutor Richard Fine, who blew the whistle on “not permitted” payments (“bribes”) secretly taken by judges of Los Angeles County, California.

The individual who was falsely holding Richard Fine under solitary confinement for the past 18 months was Leroy Baca, Sheriff of Los Angeles County, who was closely identified with the "Church of Scientology".

Other topics, which were covered at the site related to the ongoing large scale false imprisonments in Los Angeles County, as reported in official, unofficial, and media report for over a decade. In that case too, Mr Baca was a central figure among the perpetrators.

Therefore, advertising for the "Church of Scientology" at the site was considered by Human Rights Alert (NGO) at least in bad taste, if not inappropriate.
Human Rights Alert is dedicated to discovering, archiving, and disseminating evidence of Human Rights violations by the justice systems in Los Angeles County, California, and beyond. Special emphasis is given to the unique role of online public access and case management systems in the precipitous deterioration of integrity of the justice system in the United States.

10-08-01 Prison Discipline Hearing in California are Fixed // Audiencia de Disciplina prisión en California son fijos

The prison official assured his warden in an e-mail that everything was set: A group of 77 inmates accused of interfering with officers would be found guilty, no matter what.
Disciplinary hearings – required proceedings where inmates can defend themselves with witnesses and evidence – had not yet taken place at North Kern State Prison.
Yet, in the April e-mail obtained by The Bee, acting Associate Warden Steven Ojeda promised to provide the hearing officers – lieutenants he supervised – "with direction prior to the hearings and ensure they understand to hold all of these inmates accountable."
Leaving nothing to chance, Ojeda prescribed punishments, too: loss of good-behavior credit and visiting privileges, threat of a term in one of the prison system's security housing units – called "the hole" by prisoners – and other serious penalties.
By acting as judge and jury, Ojeda fit a pattern, a Bee investigation has found, that suggests widespread suppression of inmates' rights to contest allegations by guards or pursue claims of mistreatment.
Current and retired officers, prisoners and parolees allege that correctional officers and their superiors routinely file bogus or misleading reports, destroy or falsify documentation of abuses, and intimidate colleagues or inmates who push back.
