THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD ; THE KILLER NEXT DOOR

Cold Case Units use psychological profiling, forensic anthropology, and a convicted felon’s rekindled memory to heat up old cases. In Missouri, a part-time missionary is convicted, 38 years later, of killing her 5-year-old stepdaughter, and the skeleton of a Michigan boy, dead for 10 years, leads police to a serial killer.

NEW G20 Police Brutality video from the climate camp protest in London SKY NEWS 18th May 09

New footage shows an officer using a police shield as a weapon on a G20 protester
G20 Police Face Legal Review On Tactics
A group of G20 protesters, who claim they were the victims of overly aggressive police tactics, say they are considering mounting a legal challenge against Scotland Yard. Lawyers acting for a group of climate camp demonstrators have put the Metropolitan police on notice that they may launch a Judicial Review of the tactics used to contain demonstrations.
Activists who staged the Bishopsgate climate camp want an explanation of how the Metropolitan Police handled the controversial City of London events last month.
Sky News has obtained exclusive new pictures of police attempts to break-up the climate camp on the evening of April 1.
They show one officer using his shield to hit out at demonstrators, who are sitting in the middle of the road. Another officer is seen apparently hitting out with his fist.
The climate campaigners’ legal representatives are also demanding that senior officers provide a legal basis for the practice known as “kettling”, where protesters are corralled into tight groups for extended periods of time. A “pre-action” legal letter is being submitted on their behalf to Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson by solicitors at London law firm Bindmans.
A spokesman for the group said it explains they will have no option but to seek a judicial review unless the force addresses their concerns.
Protesters have singled out decisions to hold climate camp participants in one place for more than four hours and then to forcibly clear the road.
Solicitor John Halford said justification for “kettling” a peaceful demonstration remains “entirely opaque”.
He said no reason has been given as to why people were held for so long and it was not clear if the force used by police was “reasonable”.
Protester Hugh Morris said: “The policing of climate camp in the City was totally disproportionate and in all probability unlawful.
“Yet again we are faced with another David and Goliath battle in the courts to put this right when the real battle should be in halting climate change, after all, that’s why we were in Bishopsgate.”
Activists are busy raising £40,000 for a legal fighting fund, although it is believed many of those bringing cases are entitled to legal aid.
Several reviews and inquiries are already under way after a barrage of complaints of police brutality during the demonstrations.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is probing four allegations of violence by police officers and claims the media were misled by the Met.
The most high-profile complaint followed the death of newspaper seller Ian Tomlinson after he was hit with a baton and pushed to the ground.

California Supreme Court -California Case Law

The Second Appellate Court Justices–Steven Z. Perren Kenneth R. Yegan and Arthur Gilbert in their published July 28, 2010 Case Law decision put responsibility for this culvert as stated: “The court found that the Railroad may have been negligent by failing to enlarge the culvert or requiring that its tenant do so.”

OK–Why is this OCSD pipe allowed in this drainage channel? Why is OCSD not Responsible?

Superior Court Judge Teresa Estrada-Mullaney in her February 2, 2009 Judgment Decision “Notice of Judgment” States: “Judge Tangeman determined the flooding problem was “static” for several years prior to Plaintiff’s purchase of his property. Plaintiff contends the flooding is continuous and can be abated. Plaintiff argues Defendants negligent maintenance of the drainage system increases the frequency and severity of the flooding. That is inconsistent with Judge Tangeman’s determination that the primary culprit was POVE’s improvements, rather than negligent maintenance of the drainage system. There was no showing that Union’s operation of Well No. 8 contributed to the blockage. There was no showing of the County’s responsibility for maintaining the drainage channel. There was no evidence that any accumulated debris in State’s right of way contributed to the problems in the operation of the drainage system. County, State, Union or OCSD could not have abated the nuisance by undertaking any maintenance”

Why would the State of California use the State Highway for storm water retention?

Frustuck v. City of Fairfax (1963) 212 Cal.App.2d 345 [28 Cal.Rptr. 357] involved damage caused by an accelerated flow of surface water over newly developed land adjoining plaintiff’s property, collected in an enlarged culvert and sent through plaintiff’s existing ditch. The court noted the basis of the city’s liability was its failure to appreciate the probability that the drainage system from the new development to the Frustuck property, functioning as deliberately conceived, and as altered and maintained by the diversion of waters from their normal channels, would result in some damage to private property. (Id. at p. 362.) The drainage system, which the city had accepted and approved, was a public improvement and it did not matter if the city had not been the one that actually physically diverted the water. (Ibid.) “The fact that the work is performed by a contractor, subdivider or a private owner of property does not necessarily exonerate a public agency, if such contractor, subdivider or owner follows the plans and specifications furnished or approved by the public agency.” (Id. at pp. 362-363.)
