Trutanich's Totalitarianism Tackles Troublemakers

Stalin, Mubarak & Trutanich
Past, present & future tyrant-bullies?

Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich is taking an "aggressive stance" against political protesters, according to reports in the blogs (Street-Hassle and LA Dragnet) as well as the mainstream media, notably the Los Angeles Times.

Validating criticisms that he is a bully and a micro-manager, according to the LA Times, Trutanich has taken control of the prosecution of the political protesters and overturned his Office's established procedures in dealing with those who express their 1st Amendment rights a little too vocally.

Political protesters will face a year in jail under what seems to be Trutanich's notion of the fair exercise of prosecutorial discretion, a move that has angered all but a small group of Los Angelenos who support Trutanich's regime and are opposed to the Dream Act.

Some will find Trutanich's decision to take away the decision on how to handle political protesters from career prosecutors and into the hands of political followers, troubling. While Trutanich has been criticized in the past for his limited knowledge of law, it seems he has learned well the ways of tyrants who stifle free speech with draconian laws.

I don't think you'll find many people disagree with Trutanich on this one. The protesters were blocking traffic just to get free education and citizenship for illegal aliens. Most people don't want illegals in the country and certainly don't want to pay for them. Trutanich vowed to get tough on illegals and he's delivering what he promised. I don't care if these people get a year in jail, I just hope Trutanich deports them when they get out.

Trutanich knows how to kick ass. He could teach Stalin and Mubarak a thing or two.
