    As one of her neighbor, I know clearly Ms. Laura Knapp is not an honesty person. This year she has ever threatened and harassed a new immigrant Asian neighbor. If one person is that sort in daily life, how could you expect she would tell the pubic truth?

    As one of her neighbor for many years, I am qualified enough to tell the public that Ms. Laura Knapp is a dishonest and indecent person. And all our neighbors know she is rough and aggressive person, which is admitted by her boyfriend when he apologized to neighbors for her. She has ever threatened and harassed a new immigrant Asian neighbor and claimed other neighbor’s fence was made by her several years ago which was actually old enough for over 20 years with a lot of broken woods. She lied stupidly just for some benefit. And she arranged her boyfriend to harassed that neighbor. Her boyfriend shouted curses to that neighbor at midnight on Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival while she intentionally left home with her son. If she is that sort of person in daily life, how could you expect her to tell the public truth?

    I find it difficult to believe that County Council knows that water is wet.

    Anyone who has ever worked with informants, criminal or otherwise, knows it is a crap shoot at best and a nightmare at worst. Criminal informants are the worst because of their attempt to gain special treatment, or time off their sentence. Such informants must be monitored closely and managed by someone who knows what they are doing. Information received from an informant should be corroborated through other sources. While there is noting wrong with the use of jail house informants, it would appear that several mistakes were made. First they were not screened, monitored and managed as they should have been. That can be attributed to no written formal policy and gross lack of supervision. Secondly, information required to be provided to the Defense was not given to them. There is no excuse for such actions by either the Sheriffs Department or the District Attorney’s Office. The Judge was right in lowering the boom on them.

    We need the US Attorney to raid the OCDA OCSD and OC BOS

    County Council – gives the CoCo “stamp of approval” to cover whatever incompetence or malfeasance comes up.

    The legal advice has gone so far off track they don’t know who they represent? The whims of the Board of Supes narssitic creations or the bully Band of Brothers’s egos?

    CoCo finds out what the conclusion needs to be then finds a way to justify it. Laws ? What law?

    If they give their “legal” opinion and it runs contrary to what the HS graduate thinks…well it doesn’t end well for that attorney. The best ones end up transferred quickly and quietly and are never heard from again.

    The County Counsel’s office is just there to provide legal pretexts for whatever nonsense the Supervisors want to do, or have already done. They will help cover up for County executive staff every time.

    Are they supposed to work for the public’s interest? If so, nobody told them.

    As far as accountability? Forget it. We might just as well contract out the whole kit and caboodle.
