Ron Gochez, Marxist L.A. Teacher Advising Kids Against Police (video)

NEW: Check the new video I just uploaded of Ron Gochez using text messaging to alert aliens of any immigration raids.
Remember Ron Gochez, the now infamous Marxist L.A. teacher for his rabid Anti-American speech at a 2007 La Raza/UCLA rally?
Well, here is another video of Ron Gochez telling kids not to trust police. He is actually giving a statement at a hearing investigating alleged police brutality at the 2007 May Day Protest in California. He doesn’t let the opportunity go to waste. Gochez regurgitates his delirious separatist and Marxist harangue while showing virulent disgust towards the American system. No wonder many of our kids have hate in their heart.

(Recorded on July 9, 2007)
The so-called teacher introduces himself:
“My name is Ron Gochez. I’m here on behalf of Union del Barrio, Mexican Revolutionary Organization in the occupied territories of Mexico.”

Mr. Gochez ends his diatribe with a message to the youth:
“And for the youth…The police will never listen to us. They will never be our friends. Never had. They never will. They are here to serve and protect the interest of the rich. They always had, they always will. We have to organize our communities and that’s the only way we will defend our human rights.”

Gochez to FoxNews: “Yes, I am a socialist” (video)

Do Red-Light Cameras make Intersections More Dangerous? (CBS2 David Goldstein Report) Update: Full text PDF

UPDATE 9/3/2010: Here is a PDF screenshot/Google’s cache of the original report ‘Do Cameras Make Intersections More Dangerous?’ by CBS2’s David Goldstein Report. The report has been removed from the original link.

Back in November 2009, David Goldstein at CBS2 – KCAL9 (Los Angeles) presented an investigative report that found that red-light cameras at intersections can actually cause accidents:

We looked at every accident at every red light camera intersection for six months of data before the cameras were installed and six months after.

The final figures? Twenty of the 32 intersections show accidents up after the cameras were installed! Three remained the same and only nine intersections showed accidents decreasing.

At Manchester Avenue and Figueroa Street, accidents more than tripled from five before the cameras were installed to 16 afterwards. Westwood Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard tripled from three to nine. At Rodeo Road and La Brea Avenue, collisions nearly tripled from seven in the six months before the cameras were installed to 20 in the same period afterwards.

The reason?

“People see the light flash and they slam on their brakes,” Ellison said. “That’s just human nature. As a result, more accidents, more rear end accidents.”

Money over Safety:

“Los Angeles made over $4 million in 2008 on violators caught on red light cameras.

But the LAPD says it is safety, not money. They say accidents are down. They showed me statistics putting the drop at nearly 34 percent.

But they only count collisions caused by someone going through the red light, not by rear end accidents or any others at an intersection.”
