Note the irate woman's car is a Mercedes-Benz. Good thing the police officer bought his own personal body-cam to protect himself from false allegations.


@BillFOXLA thread continue
=====
LASD tells me the woman called them after this traffic stop to file a harassment complaint against the deputy with internal affairs. San Dimas station doesn't have official bodycams yet, the deputy tells me he invested in his own personal cam to protect himself on the job.
...
LASD also tells me the woman has a history of making false complaints against deputies. I've learned what her name is, and she has been a professor at schools in the LA area, but at this time, I will not be identifying her because she has not returned any of my calls or emails.

Oh I see no need to leave her a fake review of her classes as a fake student. Her actual reviews are pretty atrocious, the students have been warned. But to be fair it looks like the reviews are from 2017 or earlier and it’s possible she isn’t actively teaching anywhere

Homeschool applications double in California​

There were 34,715 private school affidavits (PSAs) for five children or less submitted during the most recent curricular year. In California, homeschools are recognized as private schools, and homeschooling families are required to submit an affidavit to the DOE annually.

The most recent homeschool figures are more than twice as high as they were during the 2018-2019 school year, when 14,548 PSAs were filed. There were 22,433 PSAs filed during the 2019-2020 school year.

“People are just really dissatisfied with the performance of the regular public schools during the COVID crisis,” Lance Izumi, a senior director of the Center for Education at the Pacific Research Institute and author of the upcoming book on homeschooling, “Voices from Home,” told The Epoch Times.

Izumi said California’s increase in homeschooling is part of a nationwide trend.

Between spring and fall of 2020, the percentage of homeschoolers nationwide more than doubled, jumping from 5.4 percent to 11.1 percent in less than four months.

The numbers are classified as true homeschooling and do not include distance learning at a public or private school.

The largest increase in homeschoolers was especially notable among minority groups, including black and Hispanic learners.

In African American households, the proportion of homeschooling quintupled from 3.3 percent in spring 2020, to 16.1 percent in fall 2020.

In Hispanic households, the number of households that opted for homeschooling doubled in the same time, from 6.2 percent to 12.1 percent.

Izumi said many black and Hispanic kids were reportedly performing the poorest academically prior to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus pandemic.

Once the CCP virus pandemic occurred, those students fell behind even further, Izumi said.

“A lot of minority parents—African American, Hispanic parents—who weren’t very satisfied with the public schools before COVID, are now especially dissatisfied with the public schools because their kids are just not doing well in this distance learning situation that the regular public schools have tried to force on everybody,” he said.

Many parents are unhappy with the quality of the distance learning their children received during the past year’s school closures, Izumi said, causing them to opt instead for homeschooling.

“Remote learning has not worked for a lot of parents,” Izumi said.

“I think that they feel that their kids are not getting the type of education and learning that they should be getting, and a lot of their kids are really suffering because of huge learning losses.”

Izumi said another reason parents are opting to home school is because they worry about “indoctrination in the classroom.”

Due to distance learning, many parents had the chance to “look over the shoulder” of their children and have been “alarmed” to find out they were learning about critical race theory (CRT), a Marxist ideology that divides society into oppressors and the oppressed based on characteristics such as race, sex, class, or sexual proclivities.

“Parents see that as causing division … that is causing social and emotional harm to those kids,” Izumi said.

“One way that parents can control what their children are learning is to homeschool.”

Izumi said parents choose homeschooling over private schools because it’s cheaper; and homeschooling over charters due to convenience, as charters only make up about one in 10 public schools in the state.

“If you don’t have the money for private school, and there isn’t a charter school nearby that may provide a better alternative for your child, then really the only thing left for you is homeschooling,” he said.

Izumi wanted to assure parents that homeschooling is “more feasible than people think,” since there are many different types of homeschooling that can accommodate different families.

Despite the state’s emergency restrictions easing, and schools announcing a return to in-person learning in the fall, Izumi said this may be the beginning of a new era for homeschooling.

“My prediction is that this increase [in homeschooling] is something that you’re going to see continue in the future … When parents find out that actually they can do it, and that they do have greater control [over their children’s education] other parents are going to see that, and you’re going to have a snowball effect.”

I don't get why people love electric cars so much. Do they think electricity comes from magic fairies and is perfectly clean? If electricity comes from coal, it is dirtier. Of course, if it comes from solar power, it is better. People need to know where it comes from before assuming it is better. A lot of people seem ignorant about this. Also, it probably is better to keep a 2005 Toyota Corolla vs. junking it and buying a brand new Tesla. It takes a lot of resources to make a brand new vehicle.

If Californians care so much about the environment, why do they build garbage subdivisions that are not walkable? Why do they have tough zoning laws that restrict small houses or don't allow more mixed-use buildings? Traditional cities in Europe and east Asia are much more environmentally friendly because they have good public transport and many people are near businesses.


New housing in California. Try living there without a car. I bet most of the people living here claim to care about the environment while not wanting their district to have 5 story buildings with light rail and businesses on the first floor (which is much better for the environment). Electric cars are a drop in the bucket.

Compare California sprawl to a more traditional European city. What city is more walkable?

What is funny is that no matter how bad things get in California, housing prices skyrocket and people keep moving there. I wonder how long it will be when Mexican immigrants will flee California to return to Mexico. Maybe in 20 years, Mexico will actually be BETTER than California.

I checked photos and some places in Mexico have already exceeded LA and San Francisco. I present a couple photos. Guess which place the photos are in: Mexico or California? Which place looks more livable and welcoming?

Notice how suburban construction is "build the biggest house you can on the small lot"? Americans still don't like living squashed in together like bugs in a hive. So after working in the office (it's"open office"!) you come home and can breathe a bit in your big house.

It has always been this way in America. This leads to some serious cogdis for those who realize how pathological our current arrangement is ("say let's let 500 million more people in to join the ranks of consoomers") yet really don't want to live in massive bug towers like in Asian cities.

(This is the purpose of soy--it accustoms one to life in the bughive. Roosh could write a satirical "The Benefits of Soy" article.)

California is the future, it's America's Brazil. And anyone who remembers life before the American Favela is a BIGOT, plain and simple.

California, as I know it, has some of the lowest populated and most uncrowded areas in the entire US. It's a big state and coastal metros and Central Valley are very different from other parts of it.

Sort of deceptive to show an exceptionally good pic of Mexico, and an exceptionally bad pic of California.
True, California is going to hell, but I'm a native (not there now), and there are still many beautiful towns and scenery, and some absolutely horrid-looking places in Mexico. There's a reason Mexicans have been coming here by the millions, but few Americanos go south. Duh.

I didn't mean that Mexico is better today. I just meant long-term, I would not be surprised if Mexico becomes better than California. Yes, I was biased but to be fair, I did choose California's most important city (LA) for the photos. I could also find similar photos in San Francisco. First-world cities don't have massive tent cities in their downtowns or at their popular beaches. I visited Seoul, Busan, Taipei, and Singapore and didn't encounter such scenes. California cities are becoming more like a second-world cities in Latin America or S. Africa with its massive wealth-poor divide and high crime.

Remember that in 1950, Venezuela was ranked #4 in GDP per capita. Now, people from Venezuela are even willing to move to Columbia, Peru, and Brazil. California will likely head down a similar path (only with a better movie industry). Promise people free stuff and they will vote for you until you start to run out of other people's money. Yes, I am pointing out an extreme case. However, it is not good to be too confident and believe California will always be prosperous. Also, South Korea had a lower per capita income than Brazil and Malaysia in 1960. South Korea decided to get focused and improve themselves much more than Malaysia and Brazil did. If Mexico decides to act more like S. Korea, it will probably pass California in 20-30 years.
