Cocaine Dealing At A Day Care Stopped

LA City Attorney Mike Feuer announced that his office, in partnership with LA IMPACT, has filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction against the owners of a Highland Park home where, allegedly, large scale cocaine sales take place and an unlicensed childcare business is being operated. Within the past month, more than 20 kilograms of cocaine worth an estimated $430,000 in wholesale value were recovered at the property.

“The rampant drug activity we allege at this home is a dangerous blight on the community—and especially alarming because little kids are caught up in the middle of it. Imagine if your children were being cared for in the same house where cocaine was being sold,” said Feuer. “My office will do everything in our power to shut down what we allege is an incredibly toxic combination of illegal drugs and day care.”

The lawsuit names Felipe Talamante and Garcia Talamante, the owners of a multi-unit residential property located at 5215 Marmion Way in Northeast Los Angeles. For at least the past two years the property allegedly has been known by law enforcement as a site for the distribution of narcotics and heavily frequented by drug users and buyers. The location allegedly is also being used as an unlicensed child care center for children between two and seven years old and is located within 900 feet of Monte Vista Elementary School. Read more

Bill Cosby Mistrial

After several attempts, the jurors in the Bill Cosby trial failed to reach a unanimous decision forcing Norristown (Pennsylvania) judge O'Neill to declare a mistrial. The jury consisted of five women and seven men (four white women, six white men, one black woman and one black man).

Cosby was facing three charges of aggravated indecent assault in a case brought forth by one accuser, Andrea Constand. Dozens of women whose encounters with Bill Cosby were past the Statute of Limitations and could not be prosecuted, reported extremely similar rape methods used by the entertainer. Cosby lured the women he wanted to have sex with into one-on-one meetings, offered them drinks and drugged them. (In a prior civil deposition, Bill Cosby admitted that he obtained Quaaludes, a powerful hypnotic drug, to give it to women with whom he intended to have sex. Incidentally, an overdose of Quaaludes can cause coma and death.) Most of the women accusing Cosby of sexual misconduct reported losing control over their bodies, losing their ability to speak and waking up later, raped.

Immediately after the mistrial was declared, clearly relieved Bill Cosby thanked the jury and wished all fathers Happy Father’s Day. His wife Camille vented her anger at the judge, prosecutors and media in a statement read by Cosby’s spokeswoman. Read more

A Dreamer Detained

Diego Ismael Puma Macancela, a 19-year-old high school student in Ossining, N.Y., was detained and is scheduled for deportation to his native Ecuador. Puma Macancela was arrested on the day of his prom and just days before his high school graduation ceremony.

The arrest of Puma Macancela, a successful student who also held two jobs: one at the local McDonalds and another at a restaurant, was followed by a wave of support. His high school, community, relatives, immigration activists, immigration lawyers, Washington politicians and nearly 20,000 people Online support his cause.

Puma Macancela didn’t break any law. Even his “illegal” presence in the United States isn’t his fault: he was brought here by his mother as a minor. The mother – in spite of the family’s financial hardship – tried to establish their legal status in America: she lost her fight for asylum, didn’t fail to pursue it. (She was financially unable to continue the fight.) The kid is obviously a champion, being able to catch up with high school curriculum in a foreign to him language and graduating on time… (How many American kids can you think of who could compete with Puma Macancela?….)
