DOWN FOR THE COUNT
By Warren Yates
I wasn’t able to be in court today again due to my work on other cases. However, when I got home, I read the commentaries that Marty and Tom wrote. As this hearing is drawing to an end, there are more twists and turns than Lombard Street in San Francisco. A very important motion by Percy Rodriquez was denied but there was a record made.
Ferreira has continued on with her rantings and ravings about things, wanting to reopen the case and trying to say that Percy Martinez wants to make a fruit salad mixing apples and oranges or some foolishness. Ferreira appears to be mixing pizza and lasagna. Man, all his talk about food is making me hungry! Then to prove that she has been rooting around in West’s Annotated Codes, she throws out People vs West, and the People vs Rauen. Well she has to keep trying to churn out those being bucks. Remember, about $180,000 last year.
At this time, they wanted to start the second motion that was scheduled for today and the DA stated that she is not prepared for that motion, and yes I did say it was scheduled for today but she is not prepared. And she took about 20 minutes to review her paperwork in regards to the motion. DAs not ready! Imagine that! Well that’s understandable. A piece of pizza probably fell on her homework and the dog ate it. Prep time to answer the motion, 20 minutes. You might have thought that her champion Fladagar might’ve shown up to help her. Are you serious?
It’s been a while since I have posted my disclaimer so that people that are reading my commentaries do not think that I am a liberal person that does not like the police. So here it is again:
As a disclaimer for this commentary, I wish to go on record as I have in numerous other commentaries that have been posted. I spent 27 years in law enforcement and fully support all legitimate and unbiased law enforcement in our country, state, county and city dedicated men and women who put their lives on the line 24 hours a day to protect us. The three keywords in my commentaries are “legitimate”, “dedicated” and “unbiased”. I totally reject an agenda driven prosecution whose sole purpose is not to find justice, but to decimate the lives, reputations and physical well-being of innocent people.
That said, let’s continue.
It was also stated in court today that Robert Woody had given about 14 different lies to prevent a life sentence. Not sure about that one. We only have 10 fingers and toes. Maybe it was 1A, 2A, 3A etc. But we have to give him credit, all those drugs, AND DRUGS ARE BAD!!!, that he languished with throughout his life, still left him with enough gray cells to realize that any of us would say anything to avoid a life sentence. That is unless some nimble brain in County Jail thought that Pelican Bay was a resort and spa in Northern California.
Marlisa Ferreira immediately states that she wants to re-open on this issue, and Judge Zuniga immediately denies her request. Judge Zuniga: “Mam, you better pick your battles.”
Ferreira has to remember that oft times, you can win the battles but you lose the war. Keep that in mind. Also keep in mind that there is another tradition that tells one to fall on their sword rather than surrender. I believe there will be more than one person falling on their sword. Enough of that skewering talk; let’s get on to the main event.
At the close of the session today, Percy Martinez requested that the judge allow Frank Carson to leave Stanislaus County when appearing in various jurisdictions on behalf of his clients. Sounds like a reasonable request since Frank Carson has not participated in any nefarious or dastardly deeds or conduct since he has been released from jail, OR EVER!!!!!
Well wouldn’t you know it, up jumped the devil, or Jack out-of-the-Box Ferreira crying “Foul, foul”. No fair. Frank Carson can’t represent people anywhere at any time at this point as he is an out of custody defendant in the homicide. Wah, wah,wah!!! Call a Wambulance and wipe up your crocodile tears Ferreira, OBJECTION DENIED!!! Frank Carson can go anywhere out of Stanislaus County to represent his defendants. Neaner, neaner.
Whack, slap, rabbit punch, karate chop, the old one two. OK okay, I give up, I give up. What a smack down which brings me to some more memories from the past. Follow the bouncing ball as we bounce back in time.
These memories are all going to come from a commentary written on:
December 30, 2015 – I’m sure that all of those of you reading this, whichever side of the court room you sit on, will remember some of these so enjoy once again.
Deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira stated that she is making an objection on behalf of the State of California regarding the documents being sent to the defense attorney. Judge Zuniga immediately notified deputy Dist. Atty. Ferreira that she has no standings to object on behalf of the state of California so her objection was overruled. As verified in the public record, deputy district attorney Ferreira quite often inserts herself in areas in which she has no business. Ouch! Smack down number 1.
Having recovered from that smack down by the Judge, deputy district attorney Ferreira then stated that she wanted the name of the person that Mr. Garcia spoke to at the Department of Justice. Mr. Garcia told Ms. Ferreira he was not going to reveal the name. Judge Zuniga then told Ms. Ferreira “you call the Department of Justice yourself”. Ouch! Smack down number 2 and we barely got started. Just saying…
Ms. Ferreira then admitted that she had no evidence showing that his (SNITCH PATRICK HAMPTON) life would be in danger. Judge Zuniga then stated that Ms. Ferreira’s arguments were offensive and that Hampton would be required to answer the question. Ouch! Smack down number 3.
Judge Zuniga then told Ms. Ferreira that you are making it much more difficult and complicated than it needs to be. Ms. Ferreira then said well if you’re going to make him answer, and then Judge Zuniga interrupted her and said “Let me handle this ma’am”. Ouch! Smack down number 4.
Ms. Magana stated that she would provide copies to all of the defense attorneys. At that point deputy district attorney Ferreira chimed in and said me too? Judge Zuniga told her no Ms. Ferreira it you do not get them! Ouch! Smack down number 5.
Deputy DA Ferreira then said “I’m sure the court will rule accordingly on the motion” and Judge Zuniga responded “I am sure you will object accordingly Ms. Ferreira”. Ouch! Smack down number, oh I’m tired of counting. That’s about five or six times Ferreira has been knocked down and that’s about enough for tonight. “Down for the count”.
She reminds me of one of those 5-foot-tall blowup Bozo the clown inflatable punching bags that you hit and it goes down to the ground and then rolls right back up for another punch.
But there’s always tomorrow on the horizon. I’ve been having so much fun I can hardly stand it.
Well I’m ready to close this but I remembered something from September 2016:
I planned to make this shorter but after having talked to a few people I do need to add one or two items. One of the things that was brought to my attention is that the Modesto Chamber of Commerce and I capitalize that name very loosely and probably won’t do it again, and not out of respect, have a boycott against Sabatino’s Ristorante. What a bunch of idiots. Only mindless Kool-Aid drinking sheeple, would let some puffed up self-important buffoons tell them where they could eat. Really! Really!
Obviously, it’s not working you buffoons. The Ristorante is crowded continually and people keep coming back because of the fantastic food served there. You better bring a book to read while you’re standing in line or sitting waiting for a table on the weekends especially. The major bigwig political buffoons in the city and County resent that the Mayor exposed skulduggery performed at taxpayers’ expense by certain influential, at least in their own minds, money grubbing developers and other schemers in the city and County.
One thing that comes to mind is the landfill boondoggle in which the taxpayers took it in the shorts for millions of dollars that went in somebody else’s pocket. Gee, I wonder whose. Then there was the land purchase by greedy buffoons, of acres of what should have been producing trees.
Almonds or walnuts it doesn’t matter. When the appraisal was done by whomever (DAVID COGDIL), the appraised price was for the land to have the trees in place. The city of course, paid the price as if the trees were still on the land. Nobody bothered to check it out. Guess what? NO TREES! So there’s untold millions of dollars that someone greedy got to put in their pocket. I wonder who? Citizens of Modesto should wonder also.
So for all of you self-righteous stuffed shirt holier than thou buffoon chamber members, I laugh in your face. YOU LOST! Even with all the childish and asinine antics you tried. Anyone led around by the nose by some anemic organization has no spine anyway. So there are a lot of people with spines in Modesto enjoying the food at Sabatino’s Ristorante. Some of you self-righteous stuffed shirts should come in and enjoy.
That’s a wrap for tonight folks. Stay tuned.
