  1. So when is the SAPD conducting the interview of the 2 men? My understanding is that they pd is awaiting for them to call in and reserve a time. What a joke.


  2. What’s of note is how Brito’s lawyer, Michael Molfetta has argued that the indictment against his client and that of the other woman since charged, Vanesa Tapia Zavala is tantamount to a with hunt. That the media are not willing to hear two sides of the story and have painted Kim Pham as a saint whilst the other women since indicted as brutal human beings worthy of being vilified. And if so, if Molfetta does have a point, how do we then explain that at the end of the day there is a dead woman who came to be savagely beaten? Is this what society has regressed to?

  3. It’s very suspicious that Pham’s friends and Vietnamese community are silent. When a whole community pleads the 5th, you know they are protecting their own from charges. So when is the SAPD conducting the interview with Pham’s friends? What about the Crosby bouncers? The one that was seen lifting up Pham’s body and putting her back on the ground while another prevented a doctor from providing medical aid. Rule #1: DON’T MOVE A HEAD INJURY VICTIM!!! Damage control by Downtown Stink and Chase’s Racists.

  4. The silence of the Asian community speaks volumes to the reality of Santa Ana.


    Send us your money, but when we KILL you, “SHUT UP”.

    That’s the message from the SA City Council.

  5. How long does SAPD need to conduct interviews of the bodyguard, of the other witnesses etc. They certainly know the name of the mystery girl by now as it has been posted on the social media sites. Seems that the Mayor and SAPD are exposed and only concerned about SA Downtown’s image.

    Shame on SAPD and the Mayor

    1. “Shame on SAPD and the Mayor”…………. Hmmmmmmmmmm

      There would be no shame if you moron mongoloids elected me as your (SA) Mayor in the 2004 or 2006 or 2008 election.


  6. Anyone who witnessed the incident or might have information, including cell phone video, are urged to call Santa Ana police detectives at (714)245-8390 or Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIP-OCCS.
