Criminal Fraud & Violation of Constitutional and Civil Rights by those acting under color of law
To whom it may concern:
“…to deprive Blacks of their civil rights across the city of Los Angeles…”
From April 2014- January 2016, tenants who were Black moved from 1522 Hi Point St after the owner had announced primary renovations to apartments units. Of the fifteen units renovated- and over fifteen mostly Black tenants—- no tenant received the required tenant habitability application [“thp”], the city requirement for primary renovations and construction permits. This deprivation of due process rights has since been brought to the attention of two federal judges, one California Superior Court Judge, and the Los Angeles city council, county board of supervisors, and state Department of Fair Employment and Housing; I believe the local rent control board and department also acted in concert with landlords and apartment management companies to deprive Blacks of their civil rights across the city of Los Angeles.
“…such monies were diverted to city and state employees so they would look the other way in the denial of due process by those acting under color of law…”
Many Blacks I believe across the city and prior to 2015 did not receive the required THP and did not receive the required primary renovation relocation monies; I believe such monies were diverted to city and state employees so they would look the other way in the denial of due process by those acting under color of law.
I am attaching a letter from city employee Robert Galardi and my response, in an argument over why the city did not enforce the THP program, to the detriment to many tenants. City officials and code enforcement rent control department turned a blind eye when I reported this criminal fraud to them month after month after month starting in 2015 public documents and at least one city hearing; I believe Judges also participated in this deprivation of civil rights and retaliated against Blacks who complained of civil rights violations: federal Judges Andrew J. Wistrich and Julie L. Staton; state court commissioner William McTaggert, retaliated against Blacks who complained of racism and such Judges ruled in favor of racist whites, one white defendant the Judge McTaggert who favored never appeared in court, a direct throwback to prejudiced courts of the south in the 1940’s. Small claims court case Los Angeles Superior Court 17IWSC03877.
I also refer to civil rights Ku Klux Klan lawsuit central district court 2:16-cv-03236-JLS-AJW , Los Angeles, filed May 11, 2016, to see many of the exhibits that implicate government officials. [Judges Wistrich and Staton].
“…Property owners, management, maintenance, management company, and government employees herein all falsely told tenants … they needed to give up their rights from the “beginning of the world”…”
I include also a copy of a proposed agreement made with tenants by property owner Hi Point Apts LLC with the sanction and approval of city employees; such criminal fraud agreement proposed that tenants needed to give up their rights “from the beginning of the world” in order to vacate their unit; this is illegal because in order to vacate a unit, you only need give the required written notice to vacate; in the case of the THP program, sign the THP request to receive permanent vacate monies; in the case of the Hi Point tenants, none of them who faced primary renovation ever waived their rights to receive the THP application because they were never given the application, and government employees were aware of the practice. Property owners, management, maintenance, management company, and government employees herein all falsely told tenants [or omitted to tell tenants the truth] they needed to give up their rights from the “beginning of the world” without telling tenants that such agreement were false and void and violated local ordinance as well as federal and state due process rights.
The persons and city employees named herein need to face criminal prosecution for civil rights violations, due process violations, criminal fraud, and violations of the city THP program due process requirements.
I believe the taking of rent monies [in my case I am a tenant who received the THP but has not vacated the unit] represents criminal fraud and criminal fraud in taking tenants property but not giving them the city required THP application.
