Panhandler Victor Frost Case – Approaching 3 million

Perhaps the only smart move by the city of Palo Alto’s TOP attorney Donald Larkin was to move Mr. Frost’s criminal case from criminal court to traffic court.    I sat through Mr. Larkin’s first ever criminal trial and it maybe his last, based on his performance with veteran public defender Mark Dames.  Mr. Larkin was no match for this prize fighter and public defender of our constitution. 

Can Mr. Larkin afford to use up his one and only Devalued Golden Goose Egg

Mr. Dame’s threw repeated legal body punches that left Larkin on the legal canvas floor stunned.   This was a mismatch without a doubt.

Golden Gloves Mark  Dames brought greater meaning to, “Floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee”.   I beleive Mr. Larkin still bares the emotional scares.  I now understand Larkin’s logic moving the case to traffic court.  He doesn’t want a rematch or a repeat performance.

This has become a three year legal battle with no real end of judiciary costs  in sight.  Who knows, Mr. Larkin may once again request a change in venue and request it be treated as a capitol punishment case further mocking and clogging our judicial system with frivolous sit-and-lie ordinance milk-crate banter.

Conservative estimates have placed the total judiciary costs at over 3 million leading many to ask the question, why?  Mr. Frost’s milk-crate has been the seat or pedestal in which to launch democratic voices since milk has been placed in bottles.

How many PAPD officers have been involved in issuing sit-and-lie warnings and citations for the past three years?  What has been the costs?  Jury selections or Voir dire, the filing of motions, pretrial conferences, pretrial proceedings, preliminary hearing, arraignment, public defenders salary and expenses.

Court room costs, Judges salary, security costs, secretarial staff,  stenographer and the list goes on and for what practical purpose.

And we haven’t even gotten to the pre-sentence investigation and reports let alone the sentencing phase if found guilty of what is now described as a taillight infraction in some legal circles.  Mr. Larkin has laid more than a golden goose egg don’t you think?

And the most shocking revelation, if you were to ask him how much taxpayers dollars he’s spent on this case he won’t be able to tell you or anyone else because he’s not talking.  At least to me.    And no one seems to care.  Except Whole Foods and perhaps the California Ave association.  Now I could be wrong.  If so, let us know………

“News You Can’t Get On The Internet”

I’m a little bit confused and dismayed by this statement, “News you can’t get on the internet”.  It’s where just about everybody receives and disseminates news these days.  And most all newspapers have gone on-line for national and international news.

Governments have been shaped by the awesome power of the internet.  One only needs to look at recent developments occurring in the Middle East specifically, Egypt and Libya.  And it’s only a matter of time before all hard copies of newspapers will fall by the wayside perhaps, with one exception, the Daily Post.

Don’t get me wrong, I believe the Daily Post is a wonderful community newspaper and I read it almost daily and many of the editorials are outstanding pieces of journalism.

David Price the editor, I understand is a strong supporter of First Amendment rights unlike another on-line newspaper, the version of the Weekly which promotes censorship.

You can Google the Daily Post but what you won’t find is archival information.  You have to call the Post and request a PDF file on previously issued articles so many of these outstanding editorials and comments from Mr. Price’s followers cannot be found through a Google search.

The way I look at it, it’s a capitol software investment well worth the expense.  Let me illustrate it another way.  Would you invest in an abacus or the Rosetta stone?  Its ancient technology which has out lived its usefulness and rightfully belongs in a museum.

E-books and on-line newspapers will continue to shape modern day societies and many visionaries have projected that even library’s will soon become a part of the distant past.

Perhaps many in the Palo Alto community will look back on our politicians and ask the question why?  Why did we spend 43 million of hard earned taxpayers’ dollars on a new library system rather than investing in a real future.  The future of Technology…..

Perhaps one economic indicator Mr. Price of the Daily Post and others should listen to is from Bill Keller,  New York Times executive editor.

“….the Web audience is growing at a great clip, while print circulation is not. And online revenues are growing faster, too, albeit from a smaller base. If the trend continues, there’s little doubt that — “eventually” — online becomes the main business”.

East Palo Alto “Gang” Peace Accord Scheduled

Bad boy’s, bad boy’s, whatcha going to do, whatcha going to do when Chief Davis comes after you!!!

Tech Savvy

In realty the main purpose and function of any policing agency is to keep and uphold the peace.  Street gangs are not only tech savvy but well organized.  I applaud Chief Davis’s attempt at reaching out to all community members.

What separates East Palo Alto from West Palo Alto is highway 101.  We’ll call it, the (DGZ) or De-Ganging Zone.

Chief Davis will explain the peace accord talks in detail which will occur on March 1st,  at tomorrow night’s meeting, “Chat with the Chief” Tuesday February 22nd at 6PM located at East Palo Alto City Hall, 2415 University.

I’m not quite sure what kind of extraordinary police presence is planned.  I do recall one event where we marched peacefully from East Palo Alto City Hall to Palo Alto City Hall in protest of former Police Chief Lynne Johnson’s police orders to target African Americans with Do-Rags on in response to a string or rash of robberies.

A SWAT TEAM was ordered to stand-by for this event.  Of course, Palo Alto city manager James Keene and then acting police Chief Lynne Johnson deny any occurrences to such activities.

However, the presence of  a SWAT TEAM was confirmed by a reliable source – namely an East Palo Alto police officer whom will remain anonymous.

The major complaint I here from our eastern neighbors, is the treatment they receive or perceived treatment from west-side police.  It seems our neighbors are targeted or pulled over for taillight infractions.

In any event, the notion of Détente is certainly a bold and creative move by police Chief Ron Davis and should speak volumes to him as a peacemaker.

“Chat with the Chief”

Pretending to Play a Virtual Reality Game in Mitchell park

Bike Riding through Mitchell Park last week I saw a large group of kids, 8-13 years old standing around dressed like medieval knights, princes, sorcerers.

But  Nothing was happening.  The kids seemed to lay around talking.  I watched for about half an hour.  Twice I saw a group of two or three chase after another kid with plastic swords and maces and both times the fleeing kid stopped, knelled down and surrendered.  I heard one kid say, ‘I can not  defeat a sorcerer and knight, I submit.’

And then the kids went back to laying around and talking about their swords and powers.  A friend told me that these kids were enacting a computer game out in the park.  Back in 1965, when I was a kid, we made swords out of sticks and shields out of garbage can lids and we’d chase each other around and whack the hell out of each other.

Today, a kid lays around in front of his computer, twitching and imagining he has fierce powers.  Then he goes outside to  re-enact the computer game by again laying around and imagining he has powers, but ‘submits’ when attacked. Nobody surrendered in 1965.  We clubbed it out till our swords broke.

Chase Bank Home Foreclosure Story Hits Home In Palo Alto

The actual number of foreclosed homes here in Santa Clara valley is not known as of this writing. But the real life stories behind these foreclosed homes and what lead up to it, is where the true tragedy lies.

This was made evident by a man I encountered who was picketing outside of Chase Bank on Middlefield Road this morning in Palo Alto.  I will attempt to seek comments from Chase Bank officials on this story and hopefully I will be able to report back with a happy ending.  Listen in on the latest raw video and stay tuned at for future up-dates as they develop.

Taser International Suppressing Evidence?

This is the claim of Tony Ciampi who has taken on the city of Palo Alto and Tazer International head-on over his being arrested and tazed by the Palo Alto police department back in 2008 and later ruled to have been unconstitutional.

Has Mr. Ciampi found the elusive smoking gun TOP city attorney Donald Larkin claims does not exist thus proving his conspiracy theory of a collaborative cover-up?

Mr. Ciampi claims as reported earlier in the Daily Post that ” they basically manipulated the video”.  Mr. Ciampi has been relentless in his pursuit at discovering the truth.

Mr. Larkin on the other hand  has an altogether different view point claiming, “we’ve really bent over backwards to provide everything that he’s entitled to and then some”.

Do we honestly believe that any opposing party is going to voluntarily turn over evidence not requested, as Larkin claims – “Everything he is entitled to and then some”.  Like a smoking gun?

Let’s not forget that Mr. Larkin was hired to protect the police. Like the two PAPD officers arrested and convicted of DUI’s.

He stuck to his legal guns to protect their identity from be revealed where no other city nationally attempted to cover it up.  He did.

Now here’s an interesting twist.  The Independent Police Auditors hired by the city of Palo Alto agreed with Mr. Larkin’s conclusions of non-transparency and the right not to know who the drunks were.

This very same team reports directly to PAPD Chief  Dennis Burns and refuses to independently investigate Mr. Ciampi’s claim of video and audio manipulation.

They claim, it’s not in their contract. So much for thinking out side box.  Are the fox’s Genanco and Miller protecting the city of Palo Alto and Tazer International?

If anyone is going to find out, you can be sure Mr. Ciampi will be hot on the trail which is sure to cause further frustration for Palo Alto’s TOP city attorney Donald Larkin and others.

The guy’s a bloodhound with a legal pit-bull mentality that won’t give up until justice as been served.

His exposing and thought provoking provocative emails have been relentless as well.  In fact, they stretch beyond US borders to locate that proverbial smoking gun and now claims he’s found it domestically.

He’s also looking further to hold all those accountable for hiding the truth as noted in his most recent email dated 2/8/2011 addressed to Jeff Rosen – Santa Clara County District Attorney and Loretta King US Deputy Assistant Attorney General U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division reveals.

Mr. Rosen,

Attached is direct evidence of the Palo Alto Police sending Taser International the Taser Cameras that actually recorded the March 15, 2008 incident and sending the Santa Clara County Crime Lab two Taser Cameras that did not record the March 15, 2008 incident.  That is direct evidence of violating PC 132, 134 and 141b.  The culpable individuals from Taser International can be charged with Conspiracy 182 (a)(1)(2)(3)(5).

Loretta King
Deputy Assistant Attorney General

Mrs. King,

Attached is the direct evidence of Taser International conspiring with the Palo Alto Police Department in order to deprive me of my Constitutional Rights by destroying exculpatory evidence during my criminal case.

Andrew Hinz of Taser International is on record stating that Taser International received the actual Taser Cameras that recorded the March 15, 2008 incident and then replaced them on November 26, 2008 with two new Taser Cameras prior to my trial which is a violation of U.S.C. 241.

The reason why Mr. Kobzanets and the FBI could not validate my allegations is because the Palo Alto Police Department gave them edited videos from cameras that did not record the March 15, 2008 incident.

If the DOJ were to bring down conspiracy charges against the culpable members of Taser International, I’m certain they would hand over the original videos as a plea deal to obtain a lighter sentence.

Additionally, there is good reason to believe that the PAPD has sent Taser International, Andrew Hinz, the Taser guns in order to tamper with the taser gun Data Ports.   See Court Documents, 121 and 122 of C09-02655-San Jose California.

Taser Intenational Protects the Lie Video and Destroys the Truth

§ 241. Conspiracy against rights

§ 242. Deprivation of rights under color of law

Preventing abuse of this authority, however, is equally necessary to the health of our nation’s democracy. That’s why it’s a federal crime for anyone acting under “color of law” willfully to deprive or conspire to deprive a person of a right protected by the Constitution or U.S. law. “Color of law” simply means that the person is using authority given to him or her by a local, state, or federal government agency.


Excessive force: In making arrests, maintaining order, and defending life, law enforcement officers are allowed to use whatever force is “reasonably” necessary. The breadth and scope of the use of force is vast—from just the physical presence of the officer…to the use of deadly force. Violations of federal law occur when it can be shown that the force used was willfully “unreasonable” or “excessive.”


Fabricating evidence against or falsely arresting an individual also violates the color of law statute, taking away the person’s rights of due process and unreasonable seizure. In the case of deprivation of property, the color of law statute would be violated by unlawfully obtaining or maintaining a person’s property, which oversteps or misapplies the official’s authority.

It is a felony in California to fabricate evidence in order to falsely and wrongfully incriminate someone of a crime, PC 132, 134 and 141b

§ 4. Misprision of felony

Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

Taser Cam Evaluation:

I have been conducting some research and analysis on the Taser Cam and came across your Evaluation published January 2008.

On page 31 of your report you document Taser International’s specification that the Taser Cam records in the MPEG-4 format.

Did you conduct testing to determine whether or not  the Taser Cam actually records in the MPEG-4 format?

If so, how did you determine that the Taser Cam actually recorded and created videos in the MPEG-4 format?

Attached is a copy of your report as a PDF file.
