THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.
"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

San Francisco Cops accused of forcing inmates to fight each other
What About a Pay Per View?
As long as we are all descending into Hell why not do a pay per view with the proceeds going to the victims of crime?
(CBS News San Francisco) — San Francisco Sheriff’s deputies have been organizing jail inmate fights and gambling on the outcomes, according to the city’s public defender.
At a hastily-arranged press conference Thursday, Public Defender Jeff Adachi said that deputies at the city’s jail at the Hall of Justice were involved in setting up gladiator-style fights and betting on who would win.
“I can only describe this an an outrageously sadistic scenario,” said Adachi.
He said four deputies were involved in staging the fights and the ringleader was Deputy Scott Neu, who was accused in 2006 of forcing inmates to perform oral sex on him. That case was settled out of court in 2009.
In the complaint, one inmate, Stanley Harris, described part of the ordeal:
“…while I’m incarcerated, Deputy Neu made me fight another individual that we’re – we’re housed in the same tank. He made us fight. We had like two fights already. It’s like, uh, he would make us go to like a – like a (inaudible) to where nobody can see, and he would make us just wrestle and fight each other to his own entertainment.”
Inmates told investigators the deputies would threaten them with beatings, handcuffing or pepper spray if they did not participate in the fights, Adachi said.
The inmate accusations were not going to be made public until the inmates were out of custody, but his Adachi said his office learned that another fight was planned for next week.
In a letter sent to Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, Adachi requested “that you take immediate action and at a minimum, remove the deputies involved from any position where they have any contact with prisoners, including the clients they have harmed.”
In the letter, Adachi said at least one inmate had been injured with a possible cracked rib.
Sheriff Mirkarimi, who spoke after Adachi’s presentation, said he will ask the U.S. Department of Justice to help in the investigation and determine whether a culture exists within his department that promotes or facilitates unlawful behavior among corrections officers.
