GOLFER TIGER WOODS VS. FULLERTON CITY MANAGER JOE FELZ. IF ONLY TIGER WOODS HAD FULLERTON’S FORMER POLICE CHIEF DANNY HUGHES LOOKING AFTER HIM DURING HIS DUI PROBLEM. BY BARRY LEVINSON

I recently was thinking about the similarities and differences comparing the Tiger Wood’s DUI arrest a few days ago and the free cab service home provided thanks to the FPD and Danny Hughes for Fullerton City Manager Joe Felz back in the wee morning hours of November 9, 2016.

Former City Manager Joe Felz

Fullerton Police Chief Dan Hughes. Don’t let the cross fool you. 

If only the same never seen DUI arrest protocol referred to by Danny Hughes was in place for the police department handling the Tiger Woods DUI arrest and booking, there could have been a different result for Mr. Woods.

Obviously, the police department dealing with Tiger Woods had not yet gone through a similar extensive and complete reformation as had already been accomplished by Danny Hughes in Fullerton.  For Danny Hughes thank goodness had already completely reformed the FPD.

 

For if that reformed minded DUI arrest protocol was in place for Tiger Woods, he too could have gotten to speak to the police chief and that chief of police could have explained the protocol to Tiger, thereby negating any reason to arrest Mr. Woods.  Yes if only Danny Hughes was in charge, Mr. Woods would not have had to be subjected to a very, very bad mug shot at police headquarters.  Yes, if only Danny Hughes was in charge of the Tiger Woods case, Mr. Woods would have found himself taken directly from the DUI scene to his sprawling mansion to be tucked into bed like the proverbial bug in a rug!

Tiger Woods is known for starting and supporting various charities by giving millions of his own dollars, while Joe Felz as City Manager gave away millions of our tax dollars not his money for bigger and bigger safety raises and benefits. Yet with all his celebrity and his 100’s of million dollars of net worth, Tiger Woods had to face the laws just like any other citizen but FOD (Friend of Dan) Joe Felz is not held to account by the FPD.

We the entire Fullerton public were so darn fortunate that Dan Hughes ran the FPD ship (kind of like Jack Sparrow in the most recent Pirates of the Caribbean film) for so many years.  In fact we were so darn fortunate that it is still paying the good people of Fullerton dividends.

Yes and if Tiger Woods had his little car problem in Fullerton, he too would have been assured that everything should be done following normal procedures, which was the alleged comment by Mayor Jennifer Fitzgerald to Danny Hughes in their phone conversation shortly after the early morning accident.  I guess the Mayor also was a big fan of strictly following the FPD DUI arrest protocol.  Thank God that our former Police Chief and our former Mayor were seeing eye to eye on this case.  For I am absolutely sure that under the exact same set of events that Joe Imbriano or Barry Levinson would have received the exact same treatment as did Joe Felz.  Does the good news relating to our Fullerton City Government ever end Fullertonians? I guess the answer to that is no unless we the people stop similar charades and/or farces like the one that took place concerning Joe Felz on the morning of November 9, 2016 going forward.

Sunset on Sunrise Village: 600-800 high density wood framed death trap housing units coming to Sunny Hills

Sources to the Fullerton Informer have confirmed that the Sunrise Village Shopping center in Sunny Hills has been slated for development.  The location of the proposed development lies on corner of Euclid and Rosecrans and is on the southeast leg of the fault. This property is in direct proximity to not one, but two dangerous fault lines.

http://maps.conservation.ca.gov/cgs/fam/

 

The Sunny hills branch of the Banc of California is set to close soon along with the rest of the businesses in the center. Just when you thought things couldn’t get worse for Fullerton, the thought of destroying another shopping center is before us once again. The job killing machine backed by the hacks in the chamber of commerce are running roughshod all over Fullerton and it has taken aim at the corner of Euclid and Rosecrans.

Don’t let the corsage fool you.

I have never seen a chamber of commerce so hell bent on running businesses out of town by bulldozing commercial properties. Well they tried the same crap in Raymond hills running the Polly’s shopping center into the ground making secret deals with developers last year but we blew the lid off of that and stopped it all the while CITY OFFICIALS DENIED IT WAS EVEN HAPPENING.

Beloved Polly’s Pies could still close to make way for massive highrise Section 8 housing project

They are not turning water into wine Ladies and gentlemen, they are turning the vital commercial property into housing and lots of it. Look around. Jobs are leaving Fullerton. Our commercial real estate inventory is dwindling fast and what is replacing them unlike single family homes, will have a half life.

You see when commercial property is turned into this, the jobs leave forever.

Over time these projects will become projects literally. They will become housing projects as the rents will always end up needing to be subsidized and we all know what happens when the voucher programs are expanded. The crime rate increases commensurately with the subsidies. You don’t do this to a middle class bedroom community.

10-15-or 20 years from now?

So you may ask yourself why is it that Fullerton cannot attract businesses and yet other neighboring cities can? It is simply because the long-term leases are not available due to the backroom deals with City officials,  the investors and the property owners. Why are we selling off and bulldozing commercial property left and right?  Maybe you ought to ask these people who continue to support candidates who engage in backroom deals and policies that are destroying Fullerton.

Curt Pringle developer operative Jennifer Fitzgerald has plenty to be ashamed of folks

Developer shill Bruce Whitaker

Planning commissioner Bennett

Establishment political operative Robyn Nordell with her pal Nelson-the gift that keeps on giving Fullerton the wrong leadership

Developer’s friend Greg Seaborn

This is their legacy to you and your children

 

The reason these commercial properties are being run into the ground is because the deals have already been made with city officials. Yes folks the die has already been cast.

No one in their right mind would risk evicting their tenants unless they knew the payload was on its way. These kinds of business decisions in an honestly run city are risky at best. Think about this. If you knew you had to overcome all kinds of obstacles at the municipal level to rezone your commercial property into an apartment complex such as hearings, noticings, EIR’s, commission meetings, approvals, plan checks, zoning, and of course the City Council, then would you risk kicking out out your tenants? Would you cut off your income stream completely or purchase a property not knowing if your plans for zone changes would not be guaranteed?

Well if you knew it was a foregone conclusion that you were going to get what you want from City officials, of course, you directly pass the craps table and parlay the whole thing on the rigged roulette wheel. That my friends is what is going on in Fullerton. Our city government is corrupt as hell and so is our press. Look who they backed in our last election.

Sunset on the Sunrise Village

More unemployment, more traffic, more pollution, more ruined roads, more everything except what Fullerton residents need most, jobs and shopping centers.

The wrecking ball will be very busy at this corner.

 

Lots of room here to build them stack em and packem high density housing units right next to an earthquake fault.

How many units can they stick on top of this Ms. Halluza?


The fact of the matter is that there is an active earthquake fault very close to where they are going to build 5 STORY WOOD FRAME UNITS.

Get ready to do battle with the phony and corrupt leaders you recently elected, with their rubber stamp appointees to the various commissions as well as the city employees whose salaries you are floating to exercise all of us through their endless line of insincere dog and pony shows. The developers are coming to Sunny Hills and with a vengeance folks.

They are going to turn this corner into

Remember when a shopping center is gone, it is gone for good along with all of the convenience it offered and the jobs it provided.  Get involved and let the city officials know that they have no right to rezone any more commercial property mixed use residential or residential until they fix our roads and do something about the traffic.

 

And don’t blame me, I tried to warn you.

Watch Joe Imbriano and Barry Levinson at FPD headquarters as they attempt for a second time to get the FPD’s own men in black to take a report on Chief Dan Hughes’ obstruction of justice

Section 148(a)(1) of the California Penal Code makes it a crime to willfully “resist, delay or obstruct” a police officer or emergency medical technician in the performance of on-the-job duties. Ironically, this section of the penal code aka as “the boot of the police state” is the section that is almost exclusively and illegitimately used AGAINST US. This time, I believe that it directly applies to Dan Hughes and possibly even Andrew Goodrich who was the watch commander.

In the wee hours of the morning following election night, Dan Hughes directly interfered with an arrest, and willfully delayed and obstructed his four officers in the performance of their on the job duties. He called off the arrest of and breathalyzer administration to a suspect caught in the act of fleeing the scene of an accident as he reeked of alcohol.  The suspect was none other than our esteemed City Manager-Joe Felz.

The state legal system is set up to give police officers the ability to carry out their functions with minimal interference, including command staff, and anyone who interferes should face arrest and prosecution if they are perceived to be interfering with the operation of law. In fact, anyone could be charged with the crime of obstructing justice for doing virtually anything that constitutes an attempt to prevent a police officer from performing their duties. I believe Dan Hughes signed his own guilty plea when he put out that memo to the council regarding the election night incident involving our city manager.

A petrified Fullerton homeowner had called in a car crash in front of their home at 1:30 in the morning where a van ran over a tree and got itself stuck. The driver of the van  was attempting to free the vehicle by continually reving up its engine, putting it in gear and reverse over and over trying to get away. What kind of police officers does Fullerton have who arrive on scene to where a man smelling of alcohol was attempting to leave the scene of an accident, and they fail to arrest and administer a breathalyzer? Whats worse is they let the alleged drunk driver who happens to be our City Manager Joe Felz call and ask for the police chief at 130 in the morning?

What kind of police chief instructs his four police officers who arrive on scene to where a man smelling of alcohol was attempting to leave the scene of an accident, to NOT to arrest him, not to administer a breathalyzer but rather wait until the police chief sends HIS special guy out possibly hours later to do a PRIVATE field sobriety test with NO BREATHALYZER, AND without the presence of another officer without and then drive him home instead of arresting him and taking him to jail? Hiding or destroying evidence or material that would be useful in proving a crime, or attempting to prevent another individual from providing information regarding a crime would have you or I facing charges of obstruction of justice. Watch Joe Imbriano and Barry Levinson at FPD headquarters as they attempt for a second time to get the FPD’s own men in black to take a report on Chief Dan Hughes’ obstruction of justice and they REFUSE.- part 1 and 2. The criminal justice system is broken folks and until law enforcement agents are held criminally liable for their actions, nothing is going to change, We need to send a strong message to all law enforcement that no one is above the law, especially those who are bestowed with arrest powers who are so handsomely paid to and entrusted with the duties to uphold and enforce it.

Joe Imbriano interviews Barry Levinson-corruption at the Fullerton Police Department. We discuss the special treatment Joe Felz was given by Fullerton Police officers and the pending obstruction of justice charges being filed against Dan Hughes.

This 30 plus minute interview is a must see if anyone still believes The FPD has been reformed.

BELOW IS THE MAIN PART OF A LETTER I EMAILED TO SUSAN KANG SCHROEDER IN THE ORANGE COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE DATED MARCH 14, 2017. BY BARRY LEVINSON

Barry Levinson

Susan Kang Schroeder
Chief of Staff
Orange County District Attorney

Hello Ms. Schroeder:

It has been a while since we last talked.  I hope you are doing well.
I have blogged that your office did the right thing by recently bringing charges against former City Manager Joe Felz and I commended your office for it.  No one should be above the law.
Implicit in your decision is the fact that our former Police Chief Danny Hughes (hours before he was retiring from his position), made not only a poor decision but a criminal decision in not directing his officers to arrest Joe Felz in the wee hours of November 9, 2016.  The facts are clear that Danny Hughes overruled normal Fullerton police procedure and the law, sending another officer of his own choosing to go to the scene after the fact to conduct a so-called sobriety test away from all the other officers on the scene.
Are you going to charge Danny Hughes with obstruction of justice and any other statute that he may have violated on November 9th?
That Joe Felz used his position of power in the city to escape arrest is one thing but the head of our law enforcement department to make it happen is actually worse in my opinion.  Our whole society is greatly damaged when the citizens loose confidence in the equal application of our laws.
Please let me know what your office plans will be on this matter.

Respectfully,

Barry Levinson
Fullerton Resident
In my humble opinion not to take action against Danny Hughes would be a stain against the citizenry and against the tenets of justice.
I did get a response from Ms. Schroeder stating she could not talk about an ongoing investigation.  Well now that Joe Felz has been arraigned in a North Orange County Courthouse on April, 3 2017, it is time for our OCDA to take formal action against Danny Hughes.  We as a democratic people can not have confidence in our law enforcement and our justice system if those charged to enforce our laws and administer justice are not held to the same standards as everyday people.

WHAT DID THE ORANGE COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE SEE THAT OUR FULLERTON POLICE DEPARTMENT HEADED AT THAT TIME BY DAN HUGHES DID NOT SEE FOUR MONTHS AFTER THE REPORTED HIT AND RUN ACCIDENT BY FORMER CITY MANAGER JOE FELZ? BY BARRY LEVINSON

 

EX CITY MANAGER JOE FELZ ACCUSED OF DUI AND HIT AND RUN

It took almost four months for former City Manager Joe Felz to be charged with two misdemeanor counts for DUI and hit and run accident that occurred in the wee hours of November 9th 2016.

It certainly provides evidence that the decision made by Dan Hughes our former Police Chief and now a head security honcho for the Disneyland Resorts in Anaheim, can now be officially called into question.

What was that decision?  It was to ignore the evidence that an officer on the scene said he smelled alcohol on the breath of Joe Felz and that Mr. Felz left the scene of an accident with damages.

Is this just another example of how the Fullerton Police Department throws serious criminal matters under the rug?  If so, can we as a people of laws tolerate those at the highest level of law enforcement abusing the power of their position?

Now the real question to be asked is this:  Will the Orange County District Attorney’s office file charges against former Fullerton Police Chief Dan Hughes for failure to arrest a high level City Employee; ignoring evidence that Joe Felz had committed one or more crimes?  Clearly, by allowing his officers to not carry out their sworn duty under the law, former Police Chief Dan Hughes also committed a crime that has much more serious ramifications than the hit and run accident itself.

Dan Hughes

We commend District Attorney Tony Rackauckas for having his office finally file charges against Joe Felz.  However, his job is not yet done.  For there is probable cause to charge Dan Hughes for failing to uphold the law when he apparently directed the officers at the scene to drive Joe Felz home rather than arrest him.

We are now waiting for the Orange County District Attorney to prove to us that there can only be one set of laws for all Americans and that those laws must be administered fairly and objectively.  We anxiously wait for him to take the right action, the ethical action and the correct legal action by filing criminal charges of obstruction and any other statutes that may have been broken by our former City Police Chief Dan Hughes? Listen to Dan Hughes after he tried to frame Barry Levinson. This is the same police cheif that made sure a drunk driver got a ride from police to his house instead of jail and is now 2nd in command at Disneyland security. In my opinion Dan Hughes belongs in jail.

P.S.  I truly hope that the Disney Corporation will also do the right thing and reconsider the recent placement of Dan Hughes in a very high position of authority in its Security Organization.  As a good corporate citizen, the failure to reconsider its recent hire will at the very least call into question their judgment.  At worst it will send a signal that the Disney Corporation apparently accepts a code of conduct by a high-level management employee that is not worthy of the Disney name.

The Church in bed with the State crossing the line: The Hunt Library and Grace Ministries

Well tonight the Library Board  voted to set the stage to begin the end of the blessing of the 1962 endowment that Norton Simon and the Hunt Food & Industries Foundation donated to Fullerton. It was to be a building and park located in Southwest Fullerton, to the City on the condition that it is “used solely for a public library and public library park.” The donation became known as the Hunt Branch and is located at 201 S. Basque Avenue. Of course it has been City property since then and that means it is public property-our property. Looks like it is church property now,

dsc00162-300x225-1

Fullerton’s for sale ladies and gentlemen and it looks like Joe Felz, with our own property, is trying to buy off one of the political powerhouses in town with a sweetheart real estate deal right after Valentines day with Grace Ministries. An ambiguously worded agenda item, little to no details, a possible sole source bid down the line if coucil approves to not fund it and to sell it off, no appraisal-Has a backdoor deal already been penned waiting to go down?
