No One Can Really Tell The Truth Like John Walsh
DID FOOTBALL GREAT ROOSEVELT GRIER GO OVERBOARD AT WEDNESDAY’S (9-25-13) LA CITY COUNCIL MEETING AND INDULGE HIMSELF IN A FLAGRANT MOMENT OF PRAYER IN FRONT OF THE CAMERAS, EARNING AN INEXCUSABLE PUT-DOWN FROM THE CITY ATTORNEY MIKE FEUER FOR THE VERBAL USE OF A FORBIDDEN (AND HIGHLY OFFENSIVE TO MIKE) THREE LETTER WORD UNDER THE HALLOWED CITY HALL ROOF: G-O-D!
THE BILL OF RIGHTS GUARANTEES FREEDOM OF RELIGION…NOT FREEDOM FROM RELIGION…AS WITNESSED WEDNESDAY AT A BRAND NEW LA MAYOR ERIC GARCETTI-CONTROLLED-CITY COUNCIL MEETING WHERE UNIVERSALLY-RESPECTED AFRICAN-AMERICAN FOOTBALL STAR ,MR. ROOSEVELT GRIER, HAD HIS KNUCKLES RAPPED SHARPLY BY CAUCASIAN CITY ATTORNEY,MIKE FEUER , FOR ALLEGEDLY INDULGING IN PRAYER AND SOLICITING OTHERS PRESENT IN THE CHAMBER TO JOIN HIM IN DOING SO IN FRONT OF CITY HALL CAMERAS AND MIKES!
THEREBY BREAKING THE NEW UN-WRITTEN RULES AT GARCETTI’S CITY HALL…WHERE FROM NOW ON UTTERING WORDS AT A CITY COUNCIL MEETING THAT SOUND EVEN REMOTELY LIKE A PRAYER TO HIZZONER THE MAYOR; OR TO HIS STAUNCH CONFIDANTE, CITY ATTORNEY MIKE FEUER; OR TO ANY OF THE CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS WHOSE CANDIDACY THE LA MAYOR ENDORSED AND RAISED HUGE CAMPAIGN FUNDS FOR, WILL NEVER BE TOLERATED!
Agnostic liberal City Attorney Mike Feuer yesterday publicly humiliated Football Legend and devout Christian Roosevelt Grier for using words in front of the City Hall cameras and microphones that the new City Attorney Mike Feuer unilaterally construed as “prayer” … which is strictly forbidden since the new Mayor Eric Garcetti has taken office, replacing the previous Catholic Mayor Mr. Antonio Villaraigosa, who wasn’t so rabidly strict regarding this issue!
The oral, public rebuke of Mr.Grier, a saddening, unprecedented action, occurred when sycophant Deputy City Attorney, Mr. Dion O’Connell, acting on behalf of his big boss Mike Feuer, interrupted the Wednesday September 25th Meeting to issue a stern verbal warning and demonstrate the LA City Attorney’s strong distaste for the use of Free Speech First Amendment rights by Roosevelt Grier; as well as an equally strong distaste for anything else that Mike, the City Attorney, deems may resemble public prayer taking place in any way shape or form within the secular confines of LA City Council Chambers which he wishes to legally dominate!
(Digital replay of today’s entire meeting is available for verification at LACITY.ORG and http://lacity.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?view_id=130&clip_id=12184)
This never-before-taken action which violates the California Open Meetings Law, (Brown Act) is being appealed: initially to the City Attorney himself!
If City Attorney Mike Feuer fails to apologize for his rude (racist?) actions today and refuses to vow that nothing like this current encroachment on free speech rights shall happen again at City Council Chambers, then this website will take the prescribed legal action as contained in the California State Open Meetings (Ralph M. Brown Act) and file a lawsuit!
In the first place, the now publicly embarrassed Mr. Roosevelt Grier had been invited by City Council President Herb Wesson to attend today’s meeting in order to be a part of the official LA City Council Anniversary celebration of the Motown mega-hit song: ” I Heard It Through The Grapevine”!
The City of LA owes Rosey a profuse apology!
