DECEMBER 21, 2010------
What you are about to read is true, everything I have written is true as I documented everything as they happened. I am sorry to say that nothing ever happened to the officers involved. I applied for social security when this happened and said that I would never be well until I saw these officers and authorities in court and stand accountable for what they did to my son and I. I was given social security to quiet me and have recieved social security ever since . I am proud of my son Ryan, he went on to have an awesome job and he has two wonderful children that he loves and he takes very good care of his family. He still carries the hurt though that he was forced to accept something that was a wrong and there was nobody that could stand up and help him, that would help him fight for the truth. I keep telling him that there are many people that care, they just wont get involved. Someday I wish I could get everyone that has gone thru this or something similiar to send him a letter just so he could see that many people have or are going thru this. Even so, they didn't break him, he still has a kind heart, helps everyone and does what is right. He works hard, people love him and trust him and that makes me happy.
Beware of the Police Complaint Center, they are rip offs. My guest book has many people and how they had money ripped off by the Police Complaint Center. I have also made copies of all the letters for safe keeping. I have been threatend once, thru my guestbook, by the Police Complaint Center telling me to remove anything about them or their lawyer will contact me, big deal! I speak the truth and can prove everything so I am not afraid! I never said anything but I had more information about the police compalint center but somehow, it has dissapeared and I have been aware of it. I just take my time doing things, I have learned patients and it does pay off, and I am sure I know by whom. Just remember, when you think you are above the law, think again. There are laws and we must all follow and obey them, police officers as well. How can you be agianst something or someone and be just as rotten as they are? You can't, because eventually it will all catch up to you and you will be caught and punished, you do things illegal, no matter who you are, you eventually get caught and be punished. One thing about us people that have gone thru things like this, we don't give up do we, Diop! We fight and continue fighting until we see justice!If you have had your money taken from the police complaint center and recieved no help from them, call C.A.R.C.L.E, congress against racism and corruption in law enforcement, and biggotswithbadges.com and speak to Matthew Fogg.
I WANT PEOPLE TO NOW THAT I CAN NOT TAKE THE HARASSMENT ANY LONGER. MY PRIVACY HAS BEEN INVADED AND MY LIFE IS IN SUCH A BAD WAY BECAUSE OF ALL THE ILLEGAL AND CRUEL ACTION THAT WERE DONE TO ME, BUT WORST OF ALL, I CAN'T FORGET WHAT HAS BEEN DONE, THEY HAVE DONE TOO MUCH AND I WILL NEVER FORGET. AS LONG AS I KNOW THEY GOT AWAY WITH IT, IT WILL DESTROY ME. I HAVE HAD ENOGH PAIN AND TORTURE, ALL BECAUSE I TRIED TO FIGHT. I SOUGHT HELP FROM THE POLICE COMPLAINT CENTER AND PROMISED LEGAL HELP FOR MY SON AND THE TRUTH IS MY SON RECIEVED NO HELP I WAS PROMISED, IT WAS ALL A LIE TO GET ME TO DO VOLUNTEER WORK FOR THEM ( INCLUDING GOING TO OUR POLICE STATIONS WEARING A WIRE, ASKING FOR A COMPLAINT FORM AND RECORDING THEIR RESPONSE, BECAUSE I DID THIS, DAVID GOLDSTEIN KCAL9 CAME TO MY TOWN AND INCLUDED OUR POLICE IN A SEGMENT CALLED, BEEF WITH THE BADGE, DIOP HIMSELF HEARD WHAT I RECORDED AND WAS THE PERSON WHO HAD DAVID CALL ME) BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT I DID NOT HAVE ALOT OF MONEY SO I RECIEVED NO HELP. I WAS ALWAYS BRUSHED OFF BY DIOP KAMAU AND REFERRED TO AN EMPLOYEE NAMED TONY LEDBETTER, THAT MADE ME BELIEVE THAT i WAS WORKING WITH THEM IN RETURN FOR HELP. tONY ASKED ME TO DRIVE TO oREGON STATE AND PICK HIM UP THAT HE WAS IN TROUBLE FOR WORK HE WAS DOIN FOR THE POLICE COMPLAINT CENTER. i BELIEVED HIM BECAUSE EVERY TIME I CALLED THE POLICE COMPLAINT CENTER DIOP HIMSELF TOLD ME TO TALK TO TONY THAT HE DID THE WEST COAST. AT THAT TIME I WAS ANGRY AND WANTED TO HELP THEM SO I DROVE ALL THE WAY TO OREGON AND TONY SAID THAT A RELATIVE HAD A CABIN IN BIG BEAR CALIFORNIA AND THAT IS WHERE WE WERE GOING TO STAY. TONY TALKED ON THE WAY TO OREGON AND SAID HE HAD CONCARNS THAT DIOP WOULD TURN ON HIM,BUT HE WASN'T WORRIED BECAUSE HE HAD ALOT OF INFORMATION ON WRONG DOING ON HIS PART. SEVERAL DAYS LATER TONY WAS ARRESTED TRYING TO SEE HIS WIFE AND I WAS TOLD BY DIOP THAT HE WAS DOING BADD AND TAKING MONEY FROM CLIENTS AND I REALLY THINK, FROM THEY WAY TONY WAS TALKING THAT DIOPB EITHER WAS INVOLVED OR KNEW WAHT HE WAS DOING. ANYWAY, IF TONY WAS DOING WRONG THEN HE NEEDED TO BE ARRESTED BUT WHY DID DIOP KEEP TELLING ME TO TALK TO TONY, WHY DID HE ALLOW ME TO SEND HIM MONEY, KNOWING MY SON WAS FACING LEGAL ISSUES. WHY DID HE ALLOW ME TO DRIVE TO OREGON TO GET TONY AND EVEN LET ME GET INVOLVED. WHEN TONY WAS ARRESTED, STILL THINKING THAT DIOP WAS GOING TO HELP ME, SICE TONY HAD ME WEAR AN UNDERCOVER WIRE TO THE POLICE STATION AND RECORD THEM AND HAD DAVID GOLDSTEIN FROM KCAL9 CALL ME AND LISTEN TO THE TAPE AND TOOK THE CREDIT FOR IT.WHEN TONY WAS ARRESTED I CALLED DIOP AND HE DIDN'Y HAVE THE GUTS TO EVEN ANSWER THE PHONE AND EXPLAIN WHAT WAS GOING ON.HE DIDN'T ANSWER THE PHOME UNTIL I LEFT I TOLD HIM I HAD TONYS COMPUTOR.IMMEDIANTLY,HE ANSWERED. DIOP SAID HE WANTED THE COMPUTOR, THAT IT BELONGED TO THEM. I REMBER WHAT TONY SAID THAT HE HAD PROOF OF WRONG DOING INVOLVING DIOP, THAT THE POLICE WANTED HIM FOR HIS INVOLVEMENT WITH THE POLICE COMPLAINT CENTER AND HAD A FEELING THAT DIOP WAS SETTING HIM UP TO KEEP HIMSELF OUT OF TROUBL. TONY WAS TO FLY AND MEET AN EMPLOYEE OF THE POLICE COMPLAINT CENTER AND GET MONEY. I GUESS HIS FEELING WAS RIGHT, WHEN THEY MET HE WAS ARRESTED I DIDN'T KNOW WHO TO TRUSTSO I MADE COPIES OF THINGS AND PUT THEM IN SAFE KEEPING AS WELL AS THE PAPERS TONY GAVE ME AND SAID NOTHING TO DIOP. I WENT TO A POSTAL PLACE AND MAILED THE COMPUTOR TO THEM,I KNEW IT WASN'T MINE SO I HAD NO RIGHT TOKEEP IT. AS SOON AS DIOP GOTTHE COMPUTOR HE WAS DONE WITH ME, TALKED HORRIBLE TO ME EVEN ACCUSING ME OF BEING INVOLVED WITH TONY. HE KNEW I WASN'T BECAUSE I CALLED THE POLICE COMPLAINT CENTER MYSELF AND LEFT MESSAGES FOR DIOP. HE KNEW I WASN'T INVOLVED BUT HE ALLOWED ME TO DO THINGS INSTRUCTED BY TONY, RISKING MY SAFETY AND WELL BEING AND DIDN'T INTEND TO HELP ME IN ANY WAY. THEY ARE FAKE AND ONLY WANT MONEY. THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT HELPING ANYONE AND DON'T CARE ABOUT THE TRUTH AND JUSTICE.THE POLICE COMPLAINT CENTER IS A BUSINESS NOT A CAUSE AND TAKE MONEY FROM CUSTOMERS AND HAVE NO INTENTION OF EARNIG A PENNY OF IT. YES, THEY ARE A BUSINESS AND IT IS ILLEGAL TO CHARGE MONEY FOR A SERIVE THEY DON'T PROVIDE. LAUREEN RICHARDS
In behalf of my son Ryan, whom I love with all my heart, this site is for him.
Ryan, my son 22 years old and who has never been in trouble ever was arrested on false charges on January 28th, 2001 by the San Bernardino Sheriffs Department (Apple valley Sheriffs). The Officer who arrested him on false charges made a comment in front of other family members that "I should teach him a lesson for opening his big mouth". I suppose to really punish him is why he was taken all the way to the West Valley Detention Center. From the moment he arrived, he was tormented, abused and deliberately and spitefully denied his Constitutional Rights.
What you are about to read on the next page is the story of what my son and I went thru with the San Bernardino Sherriffs department and the abuse and torment they caused us and the illegal things they did and got away with. I want you to know though, when this was happening, I started going to church and became very involved with helping the homeless in my town (Victorville) Many spiritual things were happening and people that had no hope were looking to God to help them change their lives. I met a mexican man " Anthony Lopez" who had talked to me and had me convinced that he was going to go back to jail, the he broke his probation after being released from prison because he was at his mothers home, in the garaage doing laundry when a girl approached him and asked to use the phone. He let her and minutes later, supposedly a man showed up and accused him of messing with the girl (supposedly the man girlfriend) and went to hit Anthony Lopez so he defended hiself and hit the guy with a stick. He said the authorities wouldn't understand or believe him so that is why he was on the run avoiding arrest and he was going to turn hisself in but he wanted to give his life to jesus and wanted me to take him to my Pastor to talk. I believed this trash, and took him to talk to my pastor. Directly afterwards, I drove Anthony to where he was staying, he was supposedly to turn himself in the following morning. Anthony asked me before I went home to drive him somewhere close, his brothers asked him to check something for them. I drove him down a dirt road, he got out of my car and was seriousely looking for something, then abruptlyy got and and told me to drive him back. On the way to drop him off, he talked about how his brothers loved hiom and would do anything for him, including murdering the guy he hit so he couldn't testify against him so he didn't go back to prison. I was in shock what he was saying and said nothing, I was scared. I went to drop him off and his two brothers showed up and were joking and both took out gloves and put them on and said they had something to Anthony in the trunk of thier car. He went and looked they laughed and then looked at me and said the protect their brother then said they were going to drive to Las Vegas. I didn't know wehat to do, I felt betrayed Anthony used God to mess with me. I didn't know if they were telling the truth. I did know that the police put them up to this and I thought just to scare me. I watched the paper for a body found, a man, for days and saw nothing. Then a friend confided in me and told me they heard the true story, that Anthony raped a half retarded girl and she told the police and that was why he was really on the run. I went back and looked at all the newspapers I was saving and found, the day after that incident, a womans body was found on the way to Las Vegas and she was beaten so badly from the waist up. This was the girl, I knew it and they did do it but you know, the sickest part was that the police knew too and allowed it because they wanted to involve me somehow and get my life put in danger. Even though I hated the police then, all I though about was that was a mother daughter and she was loved. I did go to an authority to talk to them privatly and those damn police told Anthony's brothers, the officers that thought they were above the law so they would come after me and they did, my life was in danger and they wanted to kill me. TheI had just gone to Laughlin with my son and a friend (a retired Hell's Angel) and worked the run selling beef jerky for my son's boss. When I was there, a man named "Jimmy" from the Hells angels, New York chapter came to my booth at closing and told me he had something for me and I went to his car and he got something and gave it to me, a sticker, a commemorative, it said " Berdoo 55 ect."I was really happy because Jimmy said there wasn't many of them and I felt special he gave me one. I took the sticker and put it on a pin that a employees from a casino gave me ( star shaped that looked like a badge ) and put the sticker on it so I could keep it forever. I pinned it on my shirt and wore it the whole time and wore it when I returned home too. The San Bernardino Sheriffs used that and my friendship to cause the mexicans to try to hurt me. Unfortunately, I was the wrong mother to mess with and my stubborness and persistence paid off and I found a man that wasn't afraid of them and was in position of authority. Things didn't happen the way I wanted them to, everything was done quietly and kept that way but he did help me and saved my life actually. One night I couldn't take it so I talked with this man and told him and said I was going out at night walking and if anything happend to me he would know I spoke the truth about everything. I hung the phone up and went out my door. Moments later their were lowrider type cars following me or comming my way but evry time I saw one a minute later their were men following me on the opposite side of the street walking and keeping up with me. I found this odd, especially since they were all wearing cowboy hats and cowboy boots. Every time I walked faster, they did too so to keep me in sight and stay next to me. Police cars came from out of knowhere and stopped the cars and actually towed them. I must have seen more than a dozen cars towed in a half hours time and I am sure the police hated doing it. The thing is though, I had a close friend, that used to be a Hells Angel, he was older than me. I had found out by checking things that the town where I lived had a, I think it was a lowrider car shop, but the owner was a President of the Mongels, and he was an italian guy. Before I moved to this town, I lived in orange county and went and drank and met friends at a biker bar and it was no secret, I loved and respected the hells angels, and always wore a red and white bandana or shirts. When I moved to the high desert, there weren't any biker bars but I still wore my bandana and my "free Sonny Barger" t-shirt, and people knew who my frind was and that I had known him years. I truly believe that this is what the police used to get these people to do this and make me aware and try to get me involved in the murder of this woman. I know this in m y heart, and I want people to know just how dirty the police in Victorville California were and that I don't know if anything ever happend to this Anthony Lopez or his brothers! I didn't have this on my website before but I had to put this becaause I want people to know the whole truth.
