LBPD Police Chief Guilty of Endangering Public
04/12/2021 4:05pm

CPCC Commissioners Sustain Two Allegations Against Luna For Unbecoming ConductBy:Stephen DowningOn the morning of Dec. 14, 2020 a letter alleging misconduct by Chief of Police Robert Luna was filed via email with the Citizen Police Complaint Commission CPCC by a coalition of community organizations.The complaint, based upon a story published by the Long Beach Post, alleged that on Nov. 5 Luna, along with members of his senior command staff, ordered an indoor gathering of police officers at the Long Beach Convention Center that allowed a COVID-19 super-spreader event to take place.Carlos Ovalle, executive director of People of Long Beach, and Ian Patton, executive director, Long Beach Reform Coalition, filed the personnel complaint jointly.The full story and backgroundof the incident orchestrated by the chief published by the Beachcomber on Dec. 17 can be read here: https://beachcomber.news/content/lbpd-event-called-assault-healthsafety-community.The completed personnel investigation conducted by CPCC investigators as a result of the coalition letter was submitted to the CPCC Commission on Thursday evening, April 8.According to a spokesperson for the Long Beach City Clerk the CPCC commissioners gave consideration to two charges involving conduct unbecoming a Long Beach police officer against the chief of police.The Beachcomber was unable to learn the specifics or differences alleged in each of the two charges but did learn that the commissioners voted 10/0 to sustain charge 1 and 7/3 to sustain charge 2.Both allegations arose from the same event.In an interview with CPCC Manager Patrick Weithers prior to the CPCC hearing the Beachcomber attempted to learn the manner in which Chief Luna was interviewed for the investigation, in that CPCC investigators are prohibited from interviewing sworn officers.Weithers acknowledged that his investigators cannot interview sworn LBPD officers, sit in on interviews or ask follow-up questions based upon review of recorded statements provided by internal affairs investigators but declined to provide information as to the investigative method by which the CPCC investigation was conducted or how the chiefs interview was obtained.Prior to the hearing, Ovalle filed a statement via eComment with the CPCC commissioners stating: I am gravely concerned about the seriousness of the investigation. When I was called by Mr. Weithers following my complaint against Chief Luna to the CPCC, he and the investigator were asking questions that I felt they should be asking any of the 300 or so police officers present at the super spreader event, and of course Chief Luna himself.Based on past CPCC performance I have my doubts as to the ability of the Commission to perform the work it is tasked with and of the validity of the commission itself. I hope youll prove me wrong.Ovalle concluded his statement to the commission, writing: Clearly the super spreader event happened. Clearly a number of police officers came down with COVID. Clearly Chief Luna was present as were a number of senior staff. Why, in light of the pandemic and of the directives issued by the Health Department did the leadership condone, and perhaps directly order, the mask-less event Chief Luna in dereliction of duty put his officers and the public they serve at risk.Upon learning of the CPCC commissioners findings and recommendation made to City Manager Tom Modica, Ovalle told the Beachcomber, One would hope conduct unbecoming an officer would be grounds for dismissal from the PD, particularly for a chief of police who ought to be held to a higher standard by virtue of his leadership role, more so by his blatant disregard for the health and safety of those charged with ensuring our safety.Ian Patton, responded to the Beachcombers request for comment stating: The Long Beach Reform Coalition is very pleased that for once Chief Luna is being held responsible for his actions in this city. Too often we see a culture of impunity in Long Beach City Hall, but this time the photographs didnt lie. They told a damning story about the way COVID has been treated by Long Beach officialdom, which could not be ignored.Unfortunately, Chief Luna did not take COVID-19 seriously because City Hall has not taken it seriously, on an epidemiological level. That is very different from a political level, where actions are only for show. Over the last year, we have undervalued our own Health Department and capabilities to evaluate up-to-date information for the purposes of planning, businesses reopening/re-closing, and city personnel protocols.Tragically, those strict protocols were needed most by our law enforcement personnel, who are supposed to be serving the public on our streets, rather than serving up disease. That they were disseminating a respiratory contagion is not so much the fault or responsibility of the rank and file as it is their leadership. The blame falls squarely on the Chief for an utter, incomprehensible failure of leadership.Patton concluded his response with a look back on past LBPD misconduct, stating: Following the TigerText scandal, the Councilmember Pearce special treatment scandal, the scandalous undermining of the CPCC itself in the past, the history of allowing the LB Police Officers Associations influence to run roughshod over the needs and rights of the residents, the tens of millions of dollars in pay outs for police abuse of force and wrongful death, and the unchecked rioting and burning of downtown last May 31st, the fact that Chief Luna is still employed at the Long Beach Police Department is difficult to comprehend. We hope that, at least for this most recent failure, the consequences are real and include a full airing before the City Council.Long Beach City Manager Tom Modica has final authority as to both the classification of the charges against Luna as well as the administration of discipline should he agree with the commissioners and sustain the charges.The Beachcomber asked Modicas spokesperson via text to provide the city managers evaluation of the CPCC findings, his anticipated adjudication of the misconduct allegations and the disciplinary action, if any, that he believes to be proportional to the misconduct if he upholds the findings of the CPCC commissioners.A response was not received prior to publication from the city managers spokesperson or the LBPD media relations detail.Stephen Downing is a resident of Long Beach and a retired LAPD deputy chief of police.Category: News

Convention Center to Become Shelter for Migrant Children
04/09/2021 1:24pm

By:Katherine ClementsOn Monday, April 5, Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia announced the pending decision to approve the center as a temporary shelter for migrant children who traveled across the southern U.S. border without any parents or legal guardians.A press release from Mayor Garcias office was released on April 6, outlining the operation plan. The press release provides statements of support from community members such as the president of Cal State Long Beach, Jane Close Conoley, Interim Superintendent-President of Long Beach Community College District, Dr. Mike Muoz, and nine other influential community leaders.The center will be the second temporary facility in California to be used as a shelter, following the San Diego Convention Center, which is being used to shelter more than 900 migrant girls since March 27.The contract was awaiting approval by the Long Beach City Council, and its opportunity to move forward was addressed in a meeting on Tuesday, April 6. There were no actions expected to oppose the contract, and with a unanimous vote of 9-0 the contract was passed.The Long Beach Convention Center will have the capacity to host over 1,000 children at a time. The citys contract with the U.S. Health and Human Services Department, which operates the Office of Refugee Resettlement, would last anywhere from 90 to 120 days.Mayor Garcia is an immigrant himself, born in Lima, Peru, and is proud of the refugee help Long Beach has been involved with prior, such as welcoming Cambodians.To me, this is about compassion and kindness, said Garcia. As an immigrant personally, I know how important it is to help children. This is about supporting our country and getting these kids into homes that are safe and healthy.Long Beach Councilwoman Cindy Allen belongs to the second district, which includes the convention center, which comprises more than 400,000 square feet of versatile space. Allen has prepared the Long Beach community and said that the community should prepare to help aid the migrant children.Our convention center is a major asset in the heart of our downtown, said Allen. As it is currently unable to host indoor events, this is a tremendous opportunity to help without impacting operations or businesses.According to the Los Angeles Times, as of Monday, April 5, there are currently 14,287 migrant children in custody at the Refugee Resettlement office after being transferred from Customs and Border Protection.Customs and Border Protection oversees Border Patrol and must relocate unaccompanied children to Refugee Resettlement no more than 72 hours after obtaining custody. Still, the process is being hindered due to the increased daily arrival of children.The temporary use of facilities such as the Long Beach Convention center is a direct result of President Bidens administration and their efforts to accelerate the childrens transferal from Border Patrol custody.The contracts expected approval will be moving children into the facility as early as next week and will house, feed, and provide recreational activities for the children.Mayor Garcia plans to make the focus of the center to be a family reunification center, Most of these kids that are coming will have a plan to be reunited with a family member across the country or sponsored, said Garcia. And we want to make sure that they have the best health care and the best treatment as possible.Category: News

Soccer Field to Tap Drinkable Water for Artificial Turf
04/09/2021 1:22pm

By:Bill Pearl Veteran El Dorado Park advocate Ann Cantrell repeatedly noted in public meetings on the chronically controversial El Dorado Park artificial turf soccer field that unlike natural turf which can use reclaimed water artificial turf requires using costlier drinkable water for cleaning.Sure enough, on March 31, 2021 a Long Beach Water Department crew installed a pipe to tap into drinkable water from the west side of Studebaker Road to the field across the street.Installation of the $3.1 million total cost soccer field site just south of the Long Beach Parks & Recreation Department PRD administration building north of Willow Street is being managed for PRD by the citys Public Works Department.Public Works Community Relations Officer Jennifer Caray says the crew dug a trench and installed a 4 pipe from the residential west side of Studebaker Road to the field to deliver potable drinkable water to irrigate the artificial turf soccer field and the cost is included in the total project budget.A sign on the construction fence confirms the Beachcombers prior coverage that the projects total cost is $3.1 million. Councilwoman Stacy Mungo initially said the amount was a typo and has declined to date to acknowledge the sum in her Neighborly News newsletters.Councilwoman Mungo steadily advanced the project during her term of office and made the Dec. 8, 2020 council motion that approved spending the $3.1 million total cost listed by staff in the agendizing memos fiscal impact section. Councilwoman Mungos motion carried 7-1 Supernaw dissenting, Andrews exiting before the vote.Objections to the artificial turf field focused on environmental anti-plastic and taxpayer cost grounds with public testimony split on athletic issues Pro: avoids ankle twisting gopher holes Con: excessive field heat for players.A city sign on the construction fence lists among the fields community benefits enhance water efficiency. City staff has previously said the artificial turf field will use less water than natural turf.Project completion is currently scheduled for September 2021.Bill Pearl publishes lbreport.com, a local, online news source since August 2000.Category: News

LB: ‘A Desirable Place to Live’
04/09/2021 1:19pm

100 Years AgoBy:Claudine BurnettBy 1921 Long Beach had leaped to the forefront as one of the most progressive cities in the United States, accomplishing a marvelous record of growth by trebling its population and property valuations and multiplying its bank deposits by five in the past decade. It had also acquired a world-wide fame as a place of beautiful homes, according to the Los Angeles Herald 1/29/1921, and a desirable place to live.In February 1921 it took another leap forward by holding a weeklong industrial fair to show its potential importance in commerce and manufacturing. The industrial growth started in 1907 when the city dredged and opened a navigable gateway to the sea to induce Craig Shipbuilding to build a shipyard in Long Beach.Much development followed this municipal enterprise and in 1921, at the time of the fair, Long Beach had 150 industries, with $16,500,000 $240 million in 2021 dollars invested, giving employment to 6000 with an aggregate monthly payroll of $1,250,000 $18 million in 2021.The purpose of the exposition was to call attention to the number and wide variety of products manufactured in Long Beach. More than 60 concerns exhibited at the fair with many hosting on site demonstrations of how products were made. In one exhibit a loom from a Long Beach Woolen Mill was in operation. At other places hats were being made and brooms, reed furniture and floor lamps manufactured. One booth contained a toy house completely furnished, the work of a furniture establishment.Candy making with free samples was a popular venue. There were also numerous examples of the inventive genius of residents of Long Beach. There was a traffic signaling device invented by a woman, and an automatic shoe shining device thought up by a Long Beach teen. Those wanting their shoes shined dropped a nickel into a slot, starting the mechanism, and a buffer soon put a high polish on the footwear.Elaborate musical programs and special entertainment were performed afternoon and night. A song, Long Beach Town, written by the citys own Miss Belle McCord was performed on several occasions and was well received. There were also numerous beautiful women competing for the title of Queen of Industry. It was Miss Dorothy Lancaster who won the title.Delegates from foreign embassies, the mayors of practically every Southern California city and California governor W. D. Stephens attended the industrial fair. All agreed the fair brought to public attention the fact that Long Beach had ceased to be merely a delightful beach city and had in fact become one of the most important industrial centers in California. It would become an even more important industrial center by June when oil was discovered on Signal Hill.Claudine Burnett is a retired Long Beach Public Library librarian who compiled the librarys Long Beach History Index. In her research, she found many forgotten, interesting stories about Long Beach and Southern California which she has published in 11 books as well as in monthly blogs.
