  1. Attorney Greg Diamond is fighting traffic from Brea, to insist his annoited LATINO, Julio Perez is named to the seat.

    He after all uses Crest and drinks Pepsi in the rented bedroom in the district.

    BEWARE SANTA ANA, the muscle is coming to force the wishes of Greg Diamond, Andrew Galvin and The Liberal OC upon the people who live and pay taxes in Santa Ana.


  2. Councilman Carlos Bustamante arrested on multiple felony counts……. Hmmmmmmmm

    Well, Well, Well, could it be the catalytic force to bringing down Chief Walters and Mayor Pulido which I have predicted in my earlier comments here?

    Remember that Carlos must reduce the charges somehow, like making a deal with DA, the question is was he in the Santa Ana’s shadow politics loop?

    How much he know about, the behind the seen, Santa Ana dirt.

  3. That is one way to stop a vote on the hated PBID, arrest a council member beofre the meeting instead of the next morning

  4. “What a waste of tax payers money”…… Hmmmmmm

    I am sure that you would have a different opinion if among the Bustamante’s victims would be your mother, daughter and wife — you moron mongoloid!

    1. I do not know, but I would imagine it would be the SAPD. I am told that Councilwoman Michele Martinez saw the whole thing.

  5. “I am told that Councilwoman Michele Martinez saw the whole thing”……. Hmmmmmm

    Being good citizen Michele, it would be good idea if you would write an article on the arrest itself.

    We, the Santa Ana citizens have a right to know.

    But, I believe it was Sheriffs since it came down from the county and DA.
