OMG you could cut the tension with a knife for those at the District the last 24 hours. How many times can you lie and expect to get away with it? Fire Al Alt? Are you kidding me? Where are those emails who sat on them and who is gonna let somebody know what really went on?

Does my crazy employer actually think they could get away with this stuff. I know/hear what goes on in Cabinet. There will be more revealed. I have tried to lie low because Superintendent Sociopath aka Ed Brand is always sniffing. There are some smart people on that Bond Committee. The public ought to pay attention carefully on what is said.

We District employees need to contact our representatives. Flood Lorena Gonzalez, Shirley Weber, David Alvarez and Ben Hueso with emails. Let them know what is going on. Contact their staff. We have to undermine Ed Brand.

Ed Brand needs to go to his Estate in Escondido and hide behind the access gates to his property in shame. Let him and Tom Hassey share war stories on how they were both misunderstood. Let Ed wind the Eight Day Clocks at Alliant University. Anything but making life miserable for all of us. He could become a member of the Putz Anonymous Support Group. Anything!!

What used to be called a bribe is now characterized as "free speech." Well, you can't blame Sunroad's lawyers for trying. That's what they get paid for, making black look white, wrong look right, and left look right.

Nearly a quarter MILLION dollars to SBCommunity Services in contracts on last month's Suhsd Board agenda alone! They are raking in the dough to pay their CEO nearly $200k per year, and nearly as much for Shirley Horton in a position for which she has no training....a former realtor?

Take a look at FERPA regulations. That is the FEDERAL law (which may be Fast Eddy's downfall) that clearly specifies that student record data is private and may NOT be released by the district without the express consent of the parents. So who asked the parents for permission to 'share' their students' record data.....address, telephone number, etc. etc.

Fast Eddy has been caught in so many lies...lies, lies, damned lies....Ruthie Chapman was right. (If Ed Brand's lips are moving, he is lying.) What an unholy mess.

Dec. 3, 2013

Ms. Luzzaro - I am thinking it is more like 'Ed Brand wants Castle Park Middle to become a charter school'.

It is worth sharing that I do not believe the Board had ANY knowledge of the truth regarding the shenanigans that surrounded the Arnie Duncan visit - now that they do one can only hope that they DEMAND answers.

I am thinking it is time for the board to contact legal counsel to have Ed Brand removed from his position. This story is not reporting a scandal it is reporting ILLEGAL ACTIVITY. Do Board Members currently involved in other legal matters really want to add this to their list of stresses - I am thinking NO.

The majority of Our Board members find themselves in the legal fight of their lives - Ed Brand was brought back allegedly to 'right the ship' and in doing so take any added pressure off their shoulders. Yet in truth Ed Brand has done the exact opposite - one scandal after another he has laid at their footsteps - claiming it was all the CAVE PEOPLE'S fault - now ALL OF THE BOARD HAVE PROOF POSITIVE with this story that Ed Brand will go to any lengths.

CAVE PEOPLE - the latest label Ed Brand has given those community members who dare to show up and speak up at Board meetings. (Citizens Against Virtually. Everything = CAVE). Hmmmmm I am wondering if anniej is one of those CAVE PEOPLE? Anyone taking bets?

Board members, I am recommending that you reread this story - the 'data' presented, no longer speculation, but actual written DOCUMENTED PROOF?

You now know the truth - all eyes will be watching to see your response. Will you aid and abed? Or will you stop this?

holmanspet, that video "evidence" is pretty weak, to say the least.

It is not a video of an assault, but a video of 2 or 3 still pictures that show nothing other than this guy giving you the one finger salute, with a bunch of stupid and distracting background music giving me brain damage as I watched it.

Everyone has the right to their own point of view-and I agree no one has the right to use force to challenge your view, but if your claim is this guy was using force against you then you need to bring some real evidence, like the police making an arrest based on probable cause, or a legit pic or video of an actual battery on the person.

This is just a toothless accusation on your part......

Oct. 23, 2010

RE "Pictures and two witnesses weak? What else would u like? Signed cofession from Tony Kranz? He looks like charlie Manson to me. This is not csi. In real life, pictures and witnesses are enough to convice a jury.":

Think again.

Also, talk to a real attorney.

It's possible that a real attorney has already had something to say, and you were not charged a fee.

Oct. 24, 2010

The video is likely inadmissible. I can't imagine an attorney on the opposite side not challenging it as a prejudicial fabrication. Standing alone, the photos are subject to numerous interpretations. It's possible that one may use the photos on their own to argue that the one with the complaint did not take the precaution of stepping back and walking away and thus contributed to the situation.

The one with the complaint should talk to a real attorney. I am no attorney, but I know what it feels like to lose big time as public interest plaintiffs without attorney to a battery of corporate attorneys on the other side in simultaneous federal and state legal actions, even though we had certified laboratory testing evidence that had been previously used to obtain federal felony convictions on our side, and we were crime victims recognized by the FBI and US Dept. of Justice. Losing was bad; court costs awarded to the corporate defendants only added insult to injury, and my neighbors and I still have concerns over asbestos-caused lung cancers caused by defendants' acts in the coming decades. One defendant attorney told us we could always sue over coming down with cancer when the time comes later... some comfort.

In a matter involving two parties' freedom of conflicting expression, I don't really see what the real, non-symbolic damages are. According to the video, this person has had a chance to present his political argument in a political forum, and he certainly can continue to do so. Just don't expect Superior Court as a LEGAL forum to ratify this person's political beliefs, because constitutionally, courts don't go there, most likely considering the matter to be a waste of Court resources. Besides, the one with the complaint will get no hearing until months after the election, anyways... even in Small Claims where this appears to be heading without significant damages.

Everyone needs to be careful and not hurt themselves legally. Build a better political argument and send him home at the polls.

Oct. 24, 2010

Pictures and two witnesses weak? What else would u like? Signed cofession from Tony Kranz? He looks like charlie Manson to me. This is not csi. In real life, pictures and witnesses are enough to convice a jury.

==============================

LOL.. that video is not going to convince a jury of anything holmanspet, other than the guy gave you the finger, which is certainly not against the law (not even under the "fighting words" doctrine). He does not look like C. Manson to me, but even if he did, that is not against the law.

In real life, when making accusations, the burden is upon the one making them, not the other way around.

Look, if the guy did the things you ALLEGE, he was wrong, but this video does not support a case, certainly not a criminal case and IMO not even a civil case where the evidence bar is substantially lower.

Oct. 24, 2010

Actually no, it is not like that at all.

More it is more like you are making wild claims, claiming it is attmepted murder, then showing a video of someone giving you the finger to back it up.

Not happening

RE #11:

When I wrote "Build a better political argument and send him home at the polls", this wasn't at the levels of intellectual honesty or political analysis of positions that I had in mind.

On the other hand, maybe this is what works for the Republican Party that I left two years ago to become an independent.

"pictures and two witnesses. motion denied. Tony Kranz GUILTY OF BEING A DICK."

....and of being set up by a Richard Cranium?

Oct. 25, 2010

RE #20:

There is no report of what was said prior to the alleged assault, and any comments made to Kranz are conveniently left of of the video. In this sort of political exchange, it would be difficult to get at the truth without a complete audio and video recording of the entire incident, and this apparently is not available.

To some Kranz may appear to be a hothead; others may see him as a courageous hero. It seems to depend only on the political viewpoint of the observer, as the credible unbiased evidence here seems to be rather short in supply.

In any case, outsiders such as myself still have no real clue from anything written here of what precisely those actual political views might be as they relate specifically to Encinitas, and it would have been nice to have them reported to provide some context for the alleged thrashing. As far as I can tell, fighting at Filner rallies in Encinitas is more or less OK as long as nobody pulls some hair or gives someone else a wedgie.

Oct. 28, 2010

The author of this article did not do his research or at least failed in presenting all the facts of this incident.

I was the organizer of the event that Roger Ogden was protesting. It was a Town Hall meeting featuring Congressman Bob Filner and radio personality Stacy Taylor.

http://stacytaylor.com/godammed-bastards/coffee-tea-or-me/

A couple of days before the event we found out from Roger Ogden's website that he was encouraging others to create a disturbance at our meeting.

On researching Roger Ogden further we decided we needed to hire a Security Guard for the event.

Here is a link to a image of the poster Roger Ogden was carrying that day: http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j186/DonaldDouglas/Americaneocon/Nancy%20Pelosi%20Protest/Slide2-1.jpg

Roger Ogden was there to provoke others and to bring attention to his views, anyway possible. Here is a quote from Mr. Ogden.

"The sign is designed to provoke in order to draw people’s attention to the Nazi-like racism of the doctrine of Obama’s church of 20 years. I have found that I do not have to do anything except display the sign for people to go ballistic."

Here is another quote of Mr. Ogden I found on line: “Hitler suggested that Jews should be ga[s]sed in Mein Kampf… The doctrine of Obama’s church advocates white genocide. Both were ignored. Doesn’t mean [Obama] HAS to turn out the same as Hitler, but I believe we should not ignore early warning sings. Appeasers groveled before Hitler in the early days, the same as you guys are doing now with Obama. Why should we tolerate a genocidal racist in the White House?”

Mr Ogden was invited into our meeting but only if he would sign a "Civility Pledge." He refused. So while we were inside our peaceful Town Hall meeting with Congressman Filner, Roger and his four or five goons goosestepped outside with bullhorns and their disgusting signs.

I heard later from the security guard that Mr.Kranz was just trying to get back to his car, he was blocked by Roger's protest. On seeing the Hitler sign, heated words were exchanged. Mr. Kranz then took the sign and broke the stick, but according the security guard he never touched Mr. Ogden.

While I don't condone Mr. Kranz's action, I wonder if put in the same situation would I done the same thing?

Here is a link to the poster Roger was carrying: http://americanpowerblog.blogspot.com/2009/12/battle-within-emerging-divisions-in-tea.html

Second image down.

Oct. 29, 2010

Who is going to be enthusiastic about electing another stupid council member, I mean except the people writing these comments, who are probably Kranz's friends and family members.

Hey Roger, if you read our profiles you will see we have no affiliation with your nemesis whatsoever, we are all regulars here at the Reader.

We just think you're spinning your tall tales a little bit too hard.

Oct. 31, 2010

RE "I was the organizer of the event that Roger Ogden was protesting. It was a Town Hall meeting featuring Congressman Bob Filner and radio personality Stacy Taylor":

Thank you for your side. As a member of the Old Guard under both Ford and Carter, I had been trained to ignore most protesters with signs, to stand at the ready but take no action against citizens taking a position under the First Amendment.

Still, my immediate opinion is that if anyone presented me with a picture of the Commander-in-Chief on my watch with Hitler hair on his upper lip, then perhaps that youngster would have been deserving of a history lesson in enemy identification. Clifford Alexander, the first African-American to be Secretary of the Army, got far better treatment and more respect from any and all of us in the Old Guard, at a time not far removed from Segregation at Fort Myer in Arlington, VA.

It's funny that more people don't notice the supreme irony of someone assaulting me in the street

Not true;

Hi Roger, uh, "Tristan"...

If I had been there, and you got in my face with your ignorant rants, I'd have broken more than your sign. Mr. Kranz acted with admirable restraint.

To compare Obama to Hitler means only that Roger Ogden lost the argument from the beginning.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin's_law

Oh yeah...learning pidgin German doesn't make you an expert in German history, and blathering on about Black Liberation Theology and contending that it's a plot to destroy America disqualifies you from ever being taken seriously by anyone.

Take A2Z's advice, and have a look at the real issues we're facing now. Maybe your deranged energy can be directed toward something useful...if you're looking for evil to oppose, take on CCDC...that's a real threat to every San Diegan's future.

Best,

Fred Williams

Nov. 2, 2010

Hiya, Roger - first of all, let me tell ya how gosh-darned proud of you we all are up here! You're doin' the race proud - got to celebrate it! Oh, and I love that you named your son "Tristan". Looks like we might have something in common, what with me havin' "Trig" and all. So, I was thinkin' that I could help ya refudiate these nut cases that're all wee-wee'd up over this patriotic thingy that you're doin' down there in your great pro-America town. My buddy Joe's got some guys he can loan ya, for a small fee, of course, who should be able to help ya loose these loosers. Or is it looze? I can never seem to get that one right, doncha know? Well, anyway Rogestan, keep on track (memo to Todd - put that down as our next kid's name - Track!!) beat the tar outta these b**tards and don't fergit to Shoot the Moose! (wink, wink)
