SUP. ANTONOVICH: ALSO ADD TO THAT THE ADAMSON FAMILY VERY SUPPORTIVE OF ME THROUGHOUT MY CAREER, AS WELL. THEY DID A GREAT JOB FOR A GREAT UNIVERSITY.
SUP. YAROSLAVSKY: ALL MEMBERS. THAT'S ALL I HAVE, MR. CHAIRMAN.
SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS, CHAIRMAN: SUPERVISOR KNABE, PLEASE.
SUP. KNABE: THANK YOU, MR. CHAIRMAN. I WOULD JUST ECHO ZEV'S COMMENTS AND MIKE'S ABOUT THE ADAMSON FAMILY AND GOING BACK TO THE DEANE DANA DAYS WHEN WE REPRESENTED THE MALIBU AREA, AS WELL. HE WAS JUST A GREAT YOUNG MAN WAY BACK THEN. JUST AS ZEV SAID AND ONE OF HIS STAFF MEMBERS SAID, HE WAS JUST ONE OF THOSE REALLY NICE PEOPLE THAT YOU ALWAYS ENJOYED BEING AROUND. I, TOO, HAVE SEVERAL ADJOURNMENTS. FIRST OF ALL, I'D LIKE TO ADJOURN IN MEMORY OF CLARENCE SMITH, A FORMER LONG BEACH CITY COUNCILMAN, WHO PASSED AWAY ON AUGUST 12 AT THE AGE OF 82. BORN IN SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA, SEVENTH OF 13 CHILDREN. MOVED TO LONG BEACH AT THE VERY YOUNG AGE OF 14. WENT TO POLY AND EXCELLED IN SPORTS. THAT'S WHERE HE MET AND MARRIED HIS WIFE, DOROTHY SUE BRASWELL WHILE ATTENDING LONG BEACH COLLEGE IN 1953. SERVED IN THE ARMY. GRADUATED FROM CAL STATE LONG BEACH. WORKED IN LONG BEACH PARKS AND REC FOR 35 YEARS, BEING RECOGNIZED WITH NUMEROUS AWARDS AND ACHIEVEMENTS. SERVED ON THE CITY COUNCIL FROM 1986 TO 1992. HE WAS THE ORGANIZER OF THE FIRST MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY UNITY PARADE AND FAIR. HE FOUNDED THE LONG BEACH CENTRAL AREA ASSOCIATION WHICH CONTINUES TODAY. HE WILL BE MISSED BY ALL WHO KNEW HIM. HE'S SURVIVED BY HIS WIFE, DOROTHY; HIS TWO SONS, JUNIOR AND GREGORY; AND FIVE GRANDCHILDREN. ALSO THAT WE ADJOURN IN MEMORY OF JANE BARNETT, FORMER CHAIR OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HERE IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY, WHO PASSED AWAY AFTER A LONG BATTLE WITH CANCER ON AUGUST 8. SHE HAD AN EXTENSIVE POLITICAL CAREER, MOST RECENTLY, AS I MENTIONED, CHAIRMAN OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HERE IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY. SHE WAS THE CANDIDATE FOR 43RD ASSEMBLY DISTRICT AS WELL AS BEING CHAIR OF THEIR CENTRAL COMMITTEE. SHE ALSO WORKED FOR SEVERAL ELECTED OFFICIALS, INCLUDED ASSEMBLYMAN AND MEMBER JAMES ROGAN, SERVED WITH SENATOR LESLIE AS WELL AS FORMER ASSEMBLY MEMBER PAT NOLAN. SHE IS SURVIVED BY HER HUSBAND, LOU, AND SEVEN CHILDREN. WE WANT TO EXTEND OUR DEEPEST CONDOLENCES TO HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS. ALSO WE ADJOURN IN MEMORY OF DOTTY KERWIN. DOTTY, A HERMOSA BEACH SURF PIONEER. SHE HAD AN INCREDIBLE LIFE FOR 80 YEARS AS ONE OF THE FIRST FAMILY MEMBERS OF THE SURFING COMMUNITY THERE IN HERMOSA. SHE ATTENDED EL SEGUNDO HIGH AND U.C.L.A. SHE MARRIED TED IN 1948, GAVE LIFE TO THEIR FIVE CHILDREN. WITH THE DUTIES OF RAISING FIVE CHILDREN SHE WAS VERY ACTIVE IN SEVERAL WOMEN'S ORGANIZATIONS AND VERY ACTIVE IN THE ST. JAMES WOMEN'S COUNCIL REDONDO BEACH. SHE'S SURVIVED BY FIVE CHILDREN, SCOTT, BRAD, BONNIE, DUFF, AND CASEY; AND NINE GRANDCHILDREN. ALSO THAT WE ADJOURN IN MEMORY OF LINDA STEPHANIE THOMPSON, WHO PASSED AWAY ON AUGUST 6 IN REDONDO BEACH. SHE WAS OWNER OF THE BANGS HAIR SALON IN HERMOSA FOR OVER 15 YEARS. SHE LOVED PLAYING TENNIS AND COOKING. SHE JOINED IN THE '50S AS A ROCK BAND AND PLAYING THE DRUMS AND PERFORMING WITH A BANDMATE. SHE IS SURVIVED BY HER HUSBAND OF 38 YEARS, RICHARD; DAUGHTERS, DEESA AND CIRCE; AS WELL AS FOUR GRANDCHILDREN. ALSO -- I THINK THAT'S ALL. AND SO ORDERED. I DO HAVE A READ-IN MOTION FOR NEXT WEEK. AS WE KNOW AND HAVE TALKED SO MANY TIMES, "AMERICA RELIES UPON THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE MILITARY TO PROTECT THE FREEDOMS THAT WE ALL ENJOY, AND PARTICULARLY OUR AMERICA'S DISABLED VETERANS WHO HAVE PAID A VERY HEAVY PRICE FOR THEIR MILITARY SERVICE. YET MANY OF THESE VETERANS SOMETIMES SUFFER DISADVANTAGES AFTER THEY LEAVE THEIR MILITARY LIFE AND ENTER THE BUSINESS WORLD. THE COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES NEEDS TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND ADDRESS SOME OF THESE ECONOMIC DISADVANTAGES FOR OUR VETERANS AND SERVICE-CONNECTED DISABILITIES WHO MADE EXTRAORDINARY SACRIFICES ON BEHALF OF OUR COUNTRY. TO ADDRESS THIS NEED I RECOMMEND THAT I.S.D. WORK WITH COUNTY COUNSEL TO ESTABLISH A DISABLED VETERANS' BUSINESS ENTERPRISE PREFERENCE PROGRAM THAT WOULD PROVIDE A BID PREFERENCE PRICE AS WELL AS IN OUR COUNTY SOLICITATION FOR GOODS AND SERVICES VERY SIMILAR TO OUR ESTABLISHED SMALL BUSINESS PROGRAM. SO I WOULD MOVE THAT THE BOARD DIRECT COUNTY COUNSEL AND I.S.D. TO SUBMIT BACK IN 60 DAYS AN ORDINANCE AMENDING TITLE 2 FOR ADMINISTRATIVE CODE AS IT RELATES TO DISABLED VETERANS BUSINESS ENTERPRISE PREFERENCE PROGRAM AS WELL AND WORK WITH OUR BOARD'S EXECUTIVE OFFICER TO PROVIDE THE APPROPRIATE LEGAL NOTICE. ALSO UPON ADOPTION OF THE ORDINANCE, I.S.D., IN CONSULTATION WITH COUNTY COUNSEL AND THE C.E.O., ISSUE INTERPRETATIONS OF THE ORDINANCE AND WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS ON THE IMPLEMENTATION AND ONGOING ADMINISTRATION OF THE ORDINANCE." AND THAT WOULD BE FOR NEXT WEEK. OKAY. SUPERVISOR ANTONOVICH, YOU'RE NEXT ON ADJOURNMENTS?
SUP. ANTONOVICH: I ALSO WANT TO JOIN IN ON JANE BARNETT, ON HER PASSING. I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY OF KNOWING SHE AND HER HUSBAND LOU FOR I GUESS THE PAST 50 YEARS. WE WERE IN YOUNG REPUBLICANS TOGETHER AND INVOLVED IN THE VARIOUS CAMPAIGNS THROUGHOUT THE STATE AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. SHE WAS A WONDERFUL PERSON, VERY DEDICATED TO HER FAMILY, TO HER COMMUNITY, AND A REAL LOSS. ANOTHER GOOD FRIEND WHO PASSED AWAY WHO PLAYED A MAJOR ROLE IN OUR STATE AND NATIONAL GOVERNMENT WAS JUDGE WILLIAM P. CLARK WHO PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 81. HE WAS A PATRIOTIC LEADER WITH A STRONG FAITH IN HIS CHURCH AND WHO DEVOTED HIS LIFE TO SEARCHING HIS COUNTRY. HE BEGAN WORKING FOR PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN BACK IN 1966 AS A VOLUNTEER MANAGING HIS GUBERNATORIAL CAMPAIGN IN VENTURA COUNTY. LATER, WHEN THE GOVERNOR WAS ELECTED, HE WAS APPOINTED A SUPERIOR COURT JUDGE IN SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY, AND LATER WAS APPOINTED BY PRESIDENT, THEN GOVERNOR, TO THE STATE APPELLATE COURT AND THEN TO THE CALIFORNIA STATE SUPREME COURT. HE WAS LATER CALLED TO WASHINGTON WHERE HE SERVED AS THE SECRETARY OF STATE, DEPUTY SECRETARY OF STATE AND NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER AND THEN BECAME SECRETARY OF THE INTERIOR. FOR OVER A QUARTER OF A CENTURY, HE SERVED THE PRESIDENT AS A PUBLIC OFFICIAL AND ADVISER LEADING THE UNITED STATES FOREIGN POLICY DURING THE COLD WAR. IN 1983 "TIME" MAGAZINE NAMED WILLIAM, BILL, THE SECOND MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE BECAUSE OF HIS CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PRESIDENT IN THE DE-ESCALATION OF THE CONFLICTS BETWEEN THE SOVIET UNION, WHICH LED TO THE DESTABILIZATION OF THE SOVIET UNION AND MADE IT A FREE COUNTRY. WHAT'S INTERESTING THOUGH, BILL ATTENDED BOTH STANFORD UNIVERSITY AND LOYOLA LAW SCHOOL BUT DID NOT GRADUATE FROM EITHER ONE. BUT HE DID PASS THE BAR EXAM, UNLIKE SOMEONE THAT WE KNEW THAT TOOK THE BAR EXAM FOUR TIMES AND NEVER PASSED IT. AFTER RETIRING FROM PUBLIC SERVICE, HE BUILT A CHAPEL IN PASO ROBLES WITH HIS LATE WIFE JOAN, WHICH HE HAD DONATED TO THE COMMUNITY. IT'S A CATHOLIC CHURCH TODAY. HE IS SURVIVED BY HIS FIVE CHILDREN, BECAUSE HIS WIFE PASSED AWAY A COUPLE YEARS AGO. WE WERE AT A DINNER A COUPLE YEARS AGO AND HE WAS IN HIS WHEELCHAIR, HE HAD PARKINSON'S. AND HIS LITTLE DOG WITH HIM. QUITE DEVOTED TO ANIMALS. BUT HE WAS A GOOD MAN AND GOOD PUBLIC SERVANT. ALSO I'D LIKE TO MOVE THAT WE ADJOURN IN MEMORY OF ONE OF THE LEADERS OF THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY WHO WAS A GREAT ROLE MODEL, SALVATORE ANTHONY BUCCIERI, HE PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 90 ON AUGUST 7. HE WAS A RECIPIENT OF THE PRESTIGIOUS FERNANDO AWARD. HE WAS QUITE INVOLVED IN ALL OF THE COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS. AND WHEN HE MOVED TO THE DESERT, HE WOULD ALWAYS COME BACK TO THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY FOR ALL OF THE VARIOUS PROGRAMS. GREAT ROLE MODEL AND A GREAT VOLUNTEER, COMMUNITY LEADER. AND HE IS SURVIVED BY HIS TWO SONS AND HIS BROTHER, JOSEPH, AND SISTER, CHRISTINA. SHARON GIVENS, OF THE SANTA CLARITA VALLEY, SHE WORKED FOR THE WILLIAM S. HART SCHOOL DISTRICT FOR OVER 20 YEARS AND SHE PIONEERED THE ORGANIZATION, "MOMS IN TOUCH." SHE'S SURVIVED BY HER THREE CHILDREN AND HER MOTHER. JOSEPH PAUL GIANNONE, WORKED FOR LOS ANGELES COUNTY ASSESSOR'S OFFICE FOR THE PAST 30 YEARS. HE WAS PRESIDENT OF THE SANTA CLARITA VALLEY. SISTER MADELINE MARIE BUTOROVICH, RESIDENT OF OAKLAND PASSED AWAY ON AUGUST 4. SHE IS SURVIVED BY HER SISTER-IN-LAW, LUCILLE, AND SHE WAS A MEMBER OF THE SISTERS OF ST. JOSEPH'S OF CARONDELET, THE ORDER THAT MY AUNT IS ALSO A MEMBER OF. AND WALTER MARGETICH OF UPLAND WHO WAS ACTIVE IN ST. SAVA ORTHODOX CHURCH. AND HE IS SURVIVED BY HIS WIFE, DANICA; AND HER DAUGHTERS. AND HE WAS A VETERAN OF WORLD WAR II. THOSE ARE MY ADJOURNMENT MOTIONS, MR. CHAIRMAN.
SUP. KNABE: OKAY. THANK YOU, SO ORDERED. SUPERVISOR MOLINA? OKAY. WE'LL MOVE TO PUBLIC COMMENTS, THEN? IS THAT CORRECT? IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE OFF THE AGENDA? OKAY. OSCAR JOHNSON. MIA BROWN. MORGAN CURRIER. RUDO MEDA. YOU'RE THE FIRST FOUR. GO AHEAD. MR. JOHNSON GO AHEAD.
OSCAR JOHNSON: MY NAME IS OSCAR. I'D LIKE TO SPEAK FOR THE OPPRESSED. I SPEAK FOR THE STRUGGLING POOR AND I SPEAK FOR CULTURE CHANGE. I'D LIKE TO TALK A LITTLE ABOUT RELIGION AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY. THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WAS FOUNDED UPON THE TRUE RELIGION. BUT SOME TYPE OF WAY WE HAVE GOTTEN AWAY FROM THE TRUE RELIGION. WE HAVE BEEN MISEDUCATED. WE HAVE BEEN UNEDUCATED. OUR FOUNDING FATHERS, JOHN ADAMS, SAID DEMOCRACY SHOULD NEVER RULE OVER MORALS. WE SHOULD REMOVE BLACK AMERICA OFF OF SKID ROW. WE SHOULD STOP DRUGS FROM COMING TO AMERICA. WE SHOULD STOP GUNS FROM BEING MADE IN AMERICA. WE SHOULD STOP GUNS FROM COMING INTO AMERICA. 30,000 PEOPLES A YEAR GET KILLED FROM HOMICIDE GUN VIOLENCE IN AMERICA. AMERICA HAS MORE GUNS THAN ANY NATION IN THE WORLD. AMERICA HAS MORE PEOPLES IN PRISON THAN ANY NATION IN THE WORLD. WE SHOULD STIFFEN THE -- WE SHOULD ASK MORE ACCOUNTABILITY FROM OUR LEADERS. WE SHOULD ASK MORE ACCOUNTABILITY FROM OUR LEADERS. WE SHOULD HAVE TURN OUR ATTENTION TO MORAL GOVERNMENT. WE SHOULD STOP -- WE SHOULD MOVE BLACK AMERICAN OFF OF SKID ROW. WE SHOULD ACCEPT PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. WE SHOULD ACCEPT SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY. PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY SHOULD GO TO -- PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY SHOULD LEAVE THE HOUSE AND GO INTO THE SOCIETY. WE SHOULD STOP OUR CHILDREN FROM BORN OUTSIDE WEDLOCK TODAY. WE HAVE TOO MANY CHILDREN BORN OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE TODAY IN AMERICA. OUR MORAL VALUE HAS GONE VERY FAR DOWN TODAY. WE HAVE TOO MANY UNFIT AUTHORITIES IN OUR LIFE TODAY. WE SHOULD REMOVE UNFIT AUTHORITY IN GOVERNMENT. WE SHOULD REMOVE UNFIT AUTHORITY IN OUR WORKFORCE TODAY. THE WORST CRIMINALS IN AMERICA IS OUR UNITED STATES CONGRESS. WE HAVE TOO MUCH POWER IN THE HANDS OF CRIMINALS. WE HAVE TOO MUCH AUTHORITY IN THE HANDS OF CRIMINALS.
SUP. KNABE: THANK YOU. NEXT?
MIA BROWN: GOOD MORNING, BOARD MEMBERS. MEMBERS OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS, I'M MIA BROWN, A CONSTITUTE IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY. THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO SPEAK HERE BEFORE YOU. IF ANY OF YOU ALL HAVE HAD THE JOY, THE BLESSING OF LOVING A CHILD OR CHILDREN, I KNOW THAT YOU WILL HEAR MY HUMBLE PLEA FOR YOUR INTERVENTION WITH MY NEPHEW, JEREMIAH BROWN, TO WHOM I'VE BEEN A LEGAL GUARDIAN FOR 5-1/2 YEARS. JEREMIAH'S 5-1/2 YEARS OLD. SO THE BEST AND MOST FORMATIVE YEARS OF HIS LIFE AS WELL AS MINE HAVE BEEN SPENT TOGETHER. ON AUGUST 2, 2013, JEREMIAH WAS ABRUPTLY TAKEN FROM MY CARE FROM SOME ALLEGED AND INERRANT ALLEGATIONS AGAINST ME. HE WAS PLACED IN MY MOTHER'S CARE. LET IT BE KNOWN THAT MY MOTHER AND MY CARE FOR JEREMIAH HAS ALLOWED US BOTH THE JOYS OF LOVING AND PROTECTING HIM. I AM THE SOLE FINANCIAL PROVIDER FOR BOTH JEREMIAH AND MY MOTHER. WITH A HOME, CAR, FOOD, CLOTHING AND LUXURIES OF SOCIAL ACTIVITIES. I AM HURT AND HEARTBROKEN BY MY MOTHER'S INVOLVEMENT WITH THE C.S.W. OF GAINING SOLE CUSTODY FOR JEREMIAH DUE TO MONETARY GAIN. THE ESTRANGEMENT IT HAS CAUSED ME. MORESO I AM CONCERNED AND HEARTBROKEN BY THE MISERIES AND MISUNDERSTANDING JEREMIAH'S FEELINGS ARE BEING INFLUENCED BY THIS TRANSITION. JEREMIAH ADDRESSES ME AS MOM, NOT AUNT. WE EXCHANGE LOVING HUGS AND COMMENTS ON A DAILY BASIS. I WAS TEACHING HIM ABOUT THE MORALS AND SOCIAL BEHAVIOR, AND WE SMILED AND LAUGHED TOGETHER. IMAGINE NOT SEEING JEREMIAH'S FACE, NOT HEARING HIS VOICE AND NOT ENVELOPING HIS BODY IN MY LOVING ARMS, I AM SPENT. SO I COME TO YOU. PLEASE LISTEN. PLEASE, PLEASE INVESTIGATE THE CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING JEREMIAH AND MYSELF. THIS LITTLE BOY JEREMIAH IS A PRECIOUS JEWEL TO ME. AND MEMBERS OF THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS, DO NOT SUFFER THIS CHILD. I ONLY WANT WHAT'S RIGHT AND HONORABLE FOR HIM. I LOVE HIM. AND TO PLEASE CONTINUE TO RAISE HIM AS A CHILD OF GOD. THANK YOU.
SUP. KNABE: THANK YOU. I'LL ASK -- [APPLAUSE.] PLEASE. GILBERT RAMIREZ, IRENE PANG. PATRICIA MULCAHEY AND ANNETTE BRICE TO COME FORWARD.
RUDO MEDA: GOOD MORNING MY NAME IS RUDO MEDA AND I'M WITH INTERPRETING FOR CALIFORNIA. WE ARE A STATEWIDE COALITION URGING SUPPORT FOR ASSEMBLY BILL 1263, WHICH IS CURRENTLY IN THE STATE SENATE. WE ARE TRYING TO UNITE, WE ARE A COALITION UNITING AROUND MORE ACCESSIBLE HEALTHCARE INTERPRETATION FOR MEDI-CAL USERS WITH LIMITED ENGLISH PROFICIENCY. WITH NATIONAL HEALTHCARE REFORM, MILLIONS OF CALIFORNIANS WILL BE NEWLY ELIGIBLE FOR HEALTHCARE. OF THOSE ENROLLING IN MEDI-CAL ABOUT 3 MILLION PEOPLE OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS WILL REQUIRE LANGUAGE ACCESS ASSISTANCE. THIS IS A MOMENT OF OPPORTUNITY FOR OUR STATE TO GET THIS RIGHT. THE DOLLARS ARE AVAILABLE TO CREATE AN INTERPRETERS' PROGRAM IN MEDI-CAL. THE GOVERNOR MUST SHOW LEADERSHIP ON THIS ISSUE. PATIENTS AND COMMUNITIES ARE ASKING FOR MEANINGFUL LANGUAGE ACCESS IN OUR STATE. WE ARE CALLING ON THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS TO TELL THE GOVERNOR THAT LOS ANGELES WANTS TO SPEAK THE LANGUAGE OF CARE. HOSPITALS DO EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO PROVIDE HEALTHCARE IN IN A PATIENT'S LANGUAGE. THEY USE EVERY RESOURCE THEY CAN FIND TO MAKE HEALTHCARE CULTURALLY COMPETENT. BUT THEY NEED ALL THE RESOURCES THEY CAN GET. GOVERNOR BROWN, WITH HIS SIGNATURE, CAN BRING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS INTO OUR STATE TO PAY FOR INTERPRETERS WHO WOULD THEN BE AVAILABLE TO SERVE PATIENTS WHEN THEY VISIT CLINICS, DOCTORS' OFFICES AND HOSPITALS. LACK OF LANGUAGE ACCESS IN LOS ANGELES HAS LED TO SERIOUS, IF NOT FATAL CONSEQUENCES, LIKE THE BENGALI WOMAN WHO WENT TO THE DOCTOR WITH HER DAUGHTER. BOTH OF THEM TRIED TO EXPLAIN WHAT THE CONDITION WAS TO THE DOCTOR, AND SHE WAS GIVEN MEDICATION, ONLY TO GO HOME. LUCKILY HER SON WAS VIGILANT. HE LOOKED ONLINE, FOUND THAT THE MEDICATION WAS FOR A CONDITION SHE DID NOT HAVE, AND HE WAS ABLE TO CALL THE DOCTOR, EXPLAIN THE CONDITION AND IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT SHE HAD BEEN MISDIAGNOSED BECAUSE OF LACK OF UNDERSTANDING RELATED TO LANGUAGE ACCESS. LACK OF LANGUAGE ACCESS IN HEALTHCARE INCREASES THE USE OF MORE EXPENSIVE EMERGENCY SERVICES, HIGHER DIAGNOSTIC AND TESTING COSTS AND INCREASED LIABILITY FOR PROVIDERS. THE PROGRAM WILL CREATE A NEW STATEWIDE SYSTEM FOR PROVIDING HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS WITH FUNDED PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL INTERPRETATION. ADDITIONALLY, OVER 10 YEARS, APPROXIMATELY 7,000 NEW JOBS WILL BE CREATED IN THE MEDICAL INTERPRETER FIELD. SO, AGAIN, WE ARE CALLING ON THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS TO TELL THE GOVERNOR THAT LOS ANGELES WANTS TO SPEAK THE LANGUAGE OF CARE AND NEEDS HIM TO APPROVE THIS PROGRAM. THANK YOU.
SUP. KNABE: THANK YOU. NEXT, MR. RAMIREZ?
GILBERT RAMIREZ: MY NAME IS GILBERT RAMIREZ AND THIS IS MY MOTHER, ANNIE RAMIREZ. I SUFFERED SOME PHYSICAL ABUSE IN THE COUNTY JAIL OVER 17 MONTHS AGO. I JUST GOT HELP LAST MONTH ON THE 22ND OF JULY. I'VE BEEN TRYING TO FACE THIS FOR OVER 17 MONTHS. I CALLED MR. KNABE'S OFFICE AND LEFT A MESSAGE AS WELL AS GLORIA, THE COMMISSIONER. I CALLED SEVERAL PLACES TO TRY TO GET HELP AND NOBODY'S HELPED ME AT ALL. I SPENT 17 MONTHS I FIGURE OF HELL. I TAKE MEDICATION -- NOW. I TAKE CARE OF MY MOTHER. AND IT'S EXTENDED OUT TO THE PICO RIVERA POLICE STATION. THEY HAVEN'T HELPED ME. THEY'VE DONE NOTHING BUT BADGER ME IN PICO RIVERA, AS WELL. I SUFFER NOW FROM NOT THINKING RIGHT. I CAN'T SLEEP AT NIGHT. I'M GOING THROUGH HELL IN MY MIND. I'VE GOT NOBODY TO EVER HELP ME AT ALL. I'VE GOT A THERAPIST NOW THAT HELPS ME. AND I'M DOING ALL RIGHT, KIND OF. BUT, STILL, I'VE ASKED FOR HELP AND NOBODY'S HELPED ME AT ALL. IT SEEMS AWFUL RIDICULOUS THAT I HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS AND YOU PEOPLE DON'T CARE ABOUT NOBODY AT ALL. I BEG FOR HELP TO THE SHERIFF'S STATION IN PICO AND ALL THEY DID IS MARTYR ME JUST BECAUSE I TAKE CARE OF MY MOTHER. AND NOBODY WANTS TO LISTEN. NOBODY WANTS TO SAY NOTHING TO ME. AND I'M GOING THROUGH HELL EVERY DAY, EVERY NIGHT, ALL THE TIME. I DON'T THINK IT'S FAIR AT ALL. I'VE DONE MY WRONG IN MY LIFE, BUT ALL I DO IS TAKE CARE OF MY MOTHER NOW. AND THE PICO RIVERA POLICE STATION IS AN AWFUL, AWFUL PLACE. I FEEL THAT THEY DON'T WANT TO LISTEN TO ME, THEY DON'T CARE. I'VE LEFT MESSAGES AT GLORIA'S ANSWERING MACHINE AND EVERYTHING. I'VE HAD SOCIAL WORKERS. I HAVE DETECTIVES AND ALL THEY DO IS BADGER ME. I'VE HAD CARDS OF ALL THE PLACES AND ALL THE THINGS THAT I HAVE DONE, AND I HAVE DONE EVERYTHING RIGHT THAT I COULD. BUT I DON'T FEEL IT'S FAIR THAT I HAVE TO SUFFER FOR SOMETHING I DIDN'T DO. AND NOBODY WANTS TO LISTEN TO ME. ROXIE, SHE'S HELPED ME. SHE'S MY THERAPIST. AND I OWE THAT LADY MY LIFE FOR HELPING ME. BUT IF FEEL LIKE NONE OF YOU PEOPLE CARE. AND IT'S AWFUL BECAUSE I DON'T DESERVE THIS FROM NOBODY. I'VE DONE MY WRONG IN MY LIFE BUT I PAID FOR IT. BUT I DON'T FEEL LIKE I SHOULD HAVE TO KEEP ON GOING ON PAYING FOR SOMETHING I DIDN'T DO. BUT THOSE OFFICERS IN THE COUNTY JAIL WHEN THEY BEAT ME, THEY DIDN'T CARE. IT WAS ALL DOCUMENTED AND I WENT THROUGH HELL AND THEY DIDN'T CARE AT ALL. THEY JUST BRUSHED IT UNDERNEATH THE TABLE LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO. THEY THREW ME IN DIFFERENT PLACES THAT I DIDN'T CARE FOR. I GOT A KNEE THAT HURTS ME NOW. IT'S OUT OF PLACE AND EVERYTHING. I DO EVERYTHING I CAN TO TRY TO SIT THERE AND DO THINGS OF EXERCISE BUT NOBODY CARES AT ALL. ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS THROW ME IN JAIL FOR SOMETHING, SAYING THAT I'M MEAN OR I DON'T UNDERSTAND THINGS OR ANYTHING ELSE. I JUST WANT TO BE HEARD. I WANT TO BE DEALT WITH. I WANT TO BE HEARD. THAT'S ALL. MY NAME IS GILBERT RAMIREZ. I LIVE IN PICO RIVERA. THANK YOU.
SUP. KNABE: THANK YOU. SUPERVISOR MOLINA, DO YOU WANT TO HAVE ANYONE TALK TO HIM? HE LIVES IN PICO RIVERA. ALL RIGHT. NEXT? IRENE? WHOEVER WANTS TO SPEAK.
ANNETTE BRICE: GOOD MORNING, MY NAME IS ANNETTE BRICE. ON JUNE 11, 2013, I CALLED D.C.F.S. TO REPORT A SIGNIFICANT PHYSICAL CHANGE IN THE BODY SIZE OF MY GRANDDAUGHTER, ELISHA BROWN. BUT I HAVE SINCE FOUND OUT THAT OTHER CALLS CAME IN TO THE HOTLINE, TWO OTHER CALLS, ACTUALLY, ON JUNE 8 TO D.C.F.S. AND L.A.P.D., WHICH THEY RESPONDED TO SOMEONE HEARING A SEVERE BEATING WHICH RESULTED IN A BLACK EYE ON MY SIX-YEAR-OLD GRANDDAUGHTER. THIS OCCURRED AFTER I SEEN ELISHA ON THAT DAY. AND STILL ELISHA HASN'T BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS SITUATION. ALL OF THE INFORMATION AND REQUESTS FOR ASSISTANCE AND PROTECTION FOR HER HAS NOT BEEN DEALT WITH. ELISHA HAS BEEN LIVING UNDER DURESS AND UNDER COERCION THROUGH BEATINGS CONSTANTLY. THREATS AND MORE VIOLENCE INCLUDING INTIMIDATION, MANIPULATION AND DENIAL OF FOOD FOR PUNISHMENT. SHE LIVES IN FEAR EVERY DAY OF HER LIFE. SHE'S IN FEAR OF HER LIFE AND FURTHER RETRIBUTION IF SHE TELLS. AND SHE NEEDS TO BE EXAMINED FOR INTERNAL INJURIES, LIKE OLD AND NEW FRACTURES, BRUISED ORGANS AND EVEN HEAD, BRAIN AND EYE TRAUMA. TWO DIFFERENT POLICE REPORTS MEANS THAT TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE HEARD THIS COMMOTION GOING ON WITH ELISHA BEING TOSSED AROUND THAT APARTMENT, AND THEY REPORTED IT BUT IT'S BEING CONTRIBUTED TO ME. THE EVIDENCE OF THE BLACK EYE IS ON HER FACE. AND IT'S TWO MONTHS LATER AND IT WAS MORE THAN A BLACK EYE. IT WAS A BLACK EYE WITH ADDITIONAL SEVERE WOUND ATTACHED TO IT. AND THIS IS UTTERLY RIDICULOUS. THE INJURY IS STILL VISIBLE. NOW D.C.F.S. AND PEOPLE FROM THE SUPERVISOR'S OFFICE IS DISTANCING THEMSELVES FROM ME AND TRYING TO FALSELY TO FIND SOMETHING TO INDICATE ON ME TAKING THE FOCUS OFF MY DAUGHTER WHO IS THIS CHILD ABUSER AND TRYING TO FIND SOMETHING TO ACCUSE ME OF. THE TWO REPORTS ARE IN THE POLICE COMPUTER. PICTURES OF ELISHA'S EYE IS WITH D.C.F.S. AND THEY'VE BEEN ASKING ME FOR NEW EVIDENCE WHEN ALL THE TIME THIS TWO-MONTH-OLD INJURY WAS THERE ALL THE TIME. BUT I HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF IT. SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE BEFORE ELISHA DIES IN THAT APARTMENT. THANK YOU.

OKAY, NOW ALSO THEY HEARD A CASE IN SAN FRANCISCO ABOUT CHILDREN BEING FORCED TO HAVE PSYCHO TROPICAL DRUGS. SOME PSYCHOTROPICAL DRUGS AND YOU LISTENED AND READ THE BACK OF THE F.D.A. WARNING STATES COULD BRING A RISK OF SUICIDE. NOW, THIS CASE WAS HEARD SEPTEMBER THE FOURTH, NO, NO, I'M SORRY. JUNE THE 19TH, 2013.

SUP. KNABE: THANK YOU. NEXT SPEAKER, PLEASE.
DENISE PAZ: HI, MY NAME IS DENISE PAZ. AND I WANT THE SPEAK ON ITEM 22. HERE'S AN EXAMPLE OF BLATANT ACTS OF CORRUPTION BY D.C.F.S., DIRECTOR PHILIP BROWNING AND MARILYN FLYNN. ON 8/9/2013, COMMISSIONER FLYNN HAD RECOGNIZED AND STATED INTENT ON FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS BECOMING INVOLVED WITH FOSTERING IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY. THIS IS UNETHICAL. IT IS QUITE OBVIOUS THIS BOARD IS NOT RECOGNIZING THE RIGHTS OF FOSTER CHILDREN OR BILL OF RIGHTS FOR FOSTER CHILDREN. IT STATES "YOU MAY NOT CHOOSE A RELIGION FOR FOSTER CHILD. BUT IT MUST BE CHOSEN OF THEIR OWN FREE WILL." THE WELFARE AND INSTITUTION CODE SECTION 16001.910 TO ATTEND RELIGIOUS SERVICES AND ACTIVITIES OF HIS OR HER CHOICE. THIS FURTHER PROVES THAT DIRECTOR OF D.C.F.S., PHILIP BROWNING, MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL TRAINING ON THE RIGHTS OF THESE CHILDREN. HE MUST DISPLAY -- HE IS FULLY AWARE AND COMPREHENSIVE OF THESE RIGHTS AND PROVES FURTHER REASON FOR MR. BROWNING TO BE PLACED ON LEAVE HIMSELF FOR FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND THE RIGHTS OF THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN UNDER THE DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES. AND I SEE WE GET THREE MINUTES NOW. WOW. OKAY. WELL I ALSO WANT TO ADDRESS PUBLIC SPEAKER ELISHA'S GRANDMA. SHE HAS A GREAT CONCERN ON HER GRANDSON. HE HAD A -- SHE HAD A BLACK EYE. THIS IS VERY CRITICAL. SO THIS NEEDS TO BE INVESTIGATED. BECAUSE SOMEBODY CALLED THE HOTLINE AND SHE HAS THE EVIDENCE. AND WE DON'T WANT ANOTHER FATALITY AS WHAT HAPPENED TO GABRIEL WHEN THE MANDATORY REPORTER REPORTS AND THE HOTLINE IS IGNORING THE, YOU KNOW, THESE ALLEGATIONS. ALSO, WHEN ARE YOU GUYS GOING TO MAKE A BLUE RIBBON COMMISSION WEBSITE? ON FRIDAY IT WAS AT 6 P.M. A LOT OF PEOPLE COULDN'T MAKE IT BECAUSE IT WAS LAST NOTICE. YOU GUYS NEED TO START CONSTRUCTION OF A WEBSITE ASAP FOR THE BLUE RIBBON COMMISSION. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
