There was open cooperation between branches of law enforcement even before these events occurred, they confess this. At issue is whether the government solicited retroactive withdrawal of consent, as they seemed to do with their Sheriff's hotline. This is a variety of perjury. Filner doesn't choose to fight on this bridge.
I've never heard of hugs and kisses prosecuted as battery or false imprisonment, usually these charges involve malicious intent, with bruises and scratches proving the case.
And as for proving the malicious nature of the attack on Filner, we need only look at the continued attacks on him in this blog. Rapists go unindicted in this city, horrible crimes go unremarked on this blog. Can anyone doubt that the continued fury concerns who he was, not what he did. Compare this case; http://www.sandiegoreader.com/weblogs...
Visduh: The employees have been sweating bullets for some time. The employee cuts began at the end of the Copley reign, continued through Platinum Equity and Manchester. The employees are also embarrassed -- humiliated, really -- by the quality of the newspaper under Manchester, who is using it as a blatant propaganda vehicle.
Manchester and Lynch came in and said the paper would be a cheerleader for business and the military. That was telling readers not to believe what was in the paper, particularly since San Diego is one of the scam capitals of the U.S.
Yes, employees should not believe Lynch that the 401(k) match may be reestablished, and they should get IRAs outside the company. Most want to stay in San Diego, and there are almost no jobs around, so who knows what will happen?
Personally, I think the rumor that Manchester is fed up, is losing money, and knows he is being laughed at in the community, has credibility. He may be tone deaf, but at least he has some sensitivity. He may try to dump the company in whole or in part, but still hold on to the real estate, which is his real interest. I do believe it's possible -- I said possible, not probable -- that his reign will be over this year. Best, Don Bauder
Brian: If DeMaio is the candidate, and I believe that is not certain, this race would seem to be like the Faulconer/Alvarez race. The public loses either way. Best, Don Bauder
Let's memorialize that the "three people" were ex- City Councilwoman Donna Frye and lawyers Marco Gonzalez and Cory Briggs. Unforgettable and unforgiveable.
Irene McCormack Jackson will forever be known for her fury, and what she destroyed. She obviously is an untalented writer and public speaker. I will always remember the hateful look in her eyes as she said, "He shook me like a rag doll.". I wish someone would ask her if she went limp in his arms, and became his plaything, or what the hell she meant, because Filner doesn't seem powerful enough for a ripped bodice novel move like that. Her story was just silly sometimes.
Perhaps I'm too harsh on her writing skills, she has talent at fiction.
