Merry Christmas

As we wind down the year, we wish all Dragnet readers (yes, even the haters who never fail to amuse with their colorful comments) the Season's Greetings and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Special thanks to Jo-Ann and Roger Grace at the Metropolitan News-Enterprise for the seasonally-appropriate graphic above.

If you think snowfall in Los Angeles is as unlikely as straight talk from a politician, take a moment to review the video below. It's an excellent compilation of the way Los Angelenos are bracing themselves for the big freeze that apparently has us in its icy grip.


The Dragnet will be back with a review of the top topics of 2013.


Nuch for Attorney General said...

Merry Xmas Joe Friday aka David Berger Deputy District Attorney who spends all his time blogging on the County dime. You better start looking for a new job. Yeah that's right. Nuch is coming back to run for AG when Kamala Harris drops the gig to replace Moonbeam Brown.

You heard it here first. Ho ho ho.

Merry Xmas Joe. I look forward to your review of 2013 and hope you will give some ink to Jose 'Happy Ending' Huizar, Mario 'Sacramento Deamin' Trujillo, and Steve 'How the 'F' did I screw up so badly' Ipsen. Blog On!

Best of 2013 was when Carmen Trutanich went into hiding at his Victory Party. The arrogant prick holed up in Mort Alen's office with Sheriff Baca, curled up in the fetal position on the floor bawling his eyes out. What goes around comes around, and Baca should heed the words of wiser counsel "you get down with shit and you smell like shit."

12-26 @ 8:12am, You're wrong about Ipsen. He deserves the "Survivor" award for 2013, the Gingerbread Man and Briar Rabbit got nothing on this guy.

He has, by name (mentioned over 20 times), been reversed for prosecutorial misconduct by the California Supreme Court. Judge Lavin called him out for ex-parte misconduct. He has steered the ADDA into losses in state and federal court, and caused the integrity of ERCOM to be called into question, effectively ending the careers of Paul Causey (its executive officer) and Thomas Kerrigan (the Hearing Officer who conspired with Causey against Cooley). His misconduct was so profound that he got himself fired from the DA's Office. He's not even a prosecutor anymore.

But his team of minions still controls the ADDA. They pay his legal bills. And his decisions still steer the ADDA into a black hole of legal expenses. It eats up most of the dues

So bitch about him, mock him, criticize him. You can't get rid of him and he's still running the table in the ADDA game. He's pulled it off, he'll continue to pull it off, and there's not a damn thing anyone can do about it.

He is the "Survivor" of 2013.
