Bonnie Dumanis Asked to Not Deliver Speech at City College

In recognition of Constitution Week, district attorney and mayoral candidate Bonnie Dumanis was scheduled to speak at City College’s Saville Theatre on Wednesday, September 21. However, because of the Diana Gonzalez case — in which Gonzalez, a 19-year-old mother, was killed in a City College restroom last October — activists expressed a desire for Dumanis not to show.

Social justice activists feel strongly that Dumanis’s office failed to prosecute and jail Gonzalez’s ex-husband — Armando Perez, the murder suspect — for abusing her prior to the murder. Students, friends, activists, and the Not Dumanis Facebook group were planning to ask the D.A. questions about the Gonzalez case that they feel were never thoroughly answered.

Students received news on Monday, September 19, that Dumanis was canceling her on-campus appearance.

Lacey Dorman, who was helping to organize a Dumanis protest, posted a Facebook message: "Thank you everyone for your support! Today we received amazing news...DA Bonnie Dumanis has canceled her appearance at City College:) We are so proud of the students, faculty, staff and community members who called her office over and over again asking her not to come!”

Instead of Dumanis’s speech, “an open forum on domestic violence and Diana's case" will take place at the Saville Theater on September 21, from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., according to the Not Dumanis facebook page.

Way to go!

And for the problems with the police not taking crime seriously, see http://www.familylawcourts.com/bad_cop.html

Or the "Trending" section.

Or the Bonnie Dumainis section.

Keep the heat on Bonnie Dumanis.

Continue to highlight her many failures and deceptions.

San Diego deserves a better District Attorney.

San Diego absolutely cannot afford to have her as mayor.

Stop the string of bad leaders with Jerry Sanders.

Do not let another good old boys club weasel into the mayor’s office.

Let this incident serve as a message to Bonnie Dumanis and any other public official who looks down their noses at the "little people" like Hispanic single mom Diana Gonzalez from National City. That poor soul deserved to be protected from her crazy ex-husband as much as anybody and tried to do everything right to keep herself and her family safe. Only the D.A. did not bother herself to jail, prosecute or charge the jailbird monster ex and he left Diana Gonzalez in a pool of blood-dead in the Men's Room at City College.

Diana Gonzalez may have seemed insignificant to some (in life,) but in death, she is a POTENT UNITING FORCE for positive social action! Remember: WE ARE ALL DIANA!

This case is not the worst one involving Bahnee D. She's been AWOL on many prosecutions that should have been. But, sadly, this one resonates with the public, and is easy to comprehend. Worse yet, she's just another candidate in a series of those who have owed their political careers to pandering to the corporate welfare establishment and the property developers. Yes, we deserved better than her on the bench, as DA, and we deserve better for mayor. Maybe this cancelled appearance and several other steps taken by those who know that she's bad news will guarantee that she's not the next mayor. Let her go back to Beantown with her partner and spare us any more of her presence.

Bonnie Dumanis must not be allowed to bring her culture of corruption to City Hall!

Sept. 20, 2011

Dumbass has NO chance whatsoever of becoming mayor. She is DOA.

Sept. 21, 2011

Bonnie is J. Edgar Hoover metamorphosed into a woman that wears ugly pants suits and by-gone hairdos. Like J. Edgar Hoover, Bonnie is paranoid, vindictive, corrupt and power hungry.

Jeez, Ponzi, why don't you tell us how you REALLY feel?
