This bit of journalism was not close to the truth. Ms. Konstantelos has a neighbor that is protected by LA County Sheriffs according to even a bench office in Lancaster, according to the bench officer's friend. The neighbor is a convicted felon the sheriffs protect almost every time the Konstantelos family has reported him for abuse to their family and his almost daily violations of probation.(his probation ended this year) The Konstantelos family believe they were getting close to uncovering the corruption that goes high up the system. This neighbor has his friend follow Ms. Konstantelos home and then blocked her from entering her home with his vehicle. Mr. Konstantelos saw his wife was in danger. They live 30 minutes from law enforcement which rarely comes out on their calls or takes reports anyway (911 has hung up on Ms. Konstantelos in the past when she has called for help in the past calling her "that public defender.") Mr. Konstantelos ran out to protect his wife and help her get in the property with an unloaded shotgun that was legally owned. It has a child safety lock and was unable to be used but Mr. Konstantelos hoped to scare the neighbor's friend away. The man refused and exited his car and started yelling at the couple and advancing on the scared couple. They both yelled at the man numerous times to move his truck and leave. He refused. Mr. Konstatelos never left his property as the man aggressively advanced screaming at him, so Mrs. Konstantelos called 911. She finally squeezed her car past the truck and the couple made it safely in their home. The police came out in full force with guns drawn and helicopters... but to help the neighbor's friend who lied and stated the gun was drawn on him and Mr. Konstantelos threatened to blow the man's head off. Mrs. Konstantelos was detained at gun point when she exited the house. Mr. Konstantelos couldn't leave his home b/c he had a grill going and a fire in the fireplace and no one to watch the small kids. Finally the sheriff's released Mrs. Konstantelos and Mr. Konstantelos was promptly arrested even though Mrs. Konstantelo's statement to 911 (the call was about an hour and a half long and described almost everything) made clear who the aggressor was. the Valley Press so far will not properly investigate the arrest and write an accurate story. The neighbor lied to the press and his version doesn't match versions of the 3 people who were actually there. He is the same man who ran over a doctor several years ago and left her for dead on the side of the road. He and his friends are still terrorizing the Konstantelos family by putting copies of the paper up at the local market, in the Konstantelos family's yard and other areas of the acres. The press could easily get the truth but they obviously don't want to. They would rather see a hard working family destroyed. Mrs. Konstantelos is a grown "airforce brat" who has had to learn the hard way anyone can be harmed and arrested on the lies of another, if the person reporting the crime "knows the right person." Incidentally, the Konstantelos family had complaints made on the sheriff in charge the night of the big "raid." Antonovich's office was asked to aid this family and help protect them from the neighbor and his friends over 6 months ago--so much for the politicians. Remember...this could happen to you or someone you love.

I would like to add that Amy Konstantelos got a restraining order against her neighbor in July. The Konstantelos family was ready on the set hearing date before Judge Randolf Rogers who was covering the docket for Comm. Biachi that day. Mr. McGowan--the neighbor- was in court with his "friends." He asked for a continuance to get "his deputy" who would speak against us according to McGowan. He was granted his continuance. Amy Konstantelos agreed as long as none of the restraining order terms changed. The deputy McGowan wanted was the same one who responded when 10 year old Alexander Konstantelos called for help. When the deputies arrived they hung out at McGowan's for about a half hour. They spend only abut 3 minutes with the family and child that called for help. Deputy Williams refused to take Mrs. Konstantelos' statement and refused a copy of the assault captured on tape. Mr. Konstantelos told Deputy Williams and Patterson they had to take a report. Instead they called him and his wife assholes while leaving. Alexander heard his parents called assholes, he wrote Leroy Baca who never responded to the child. A complaint was lodged and an"inquiry" was done by none other than Lt. Fredricks who found the deputies acted reasonably.
How many felons do you know who get this kind of respect and cover from law enforcement?
Seven days later, Mr McGowan was allowed an ex-parte hearing before Judge Rogers with his own request for a restraining order. He made fraudulent claims in his petition which can be proved by video. He was granted his order. Mrs. Konstantelos wrote an ex-parte motion to be heard and the case was before Judge Bianchi. He would not hear the case and it was sent before Judge Randy Rhodes who agreed Mrs. Konstantelos appeared to be in real fear of Mr. McGowan and others, but he claimed he could not hear an ex-parte motion since the issue was before the court already before the court with all parties present--which begs the was McGowan allowed to be heard? His order was added onto the one originally filed by Ms. Konstantelos.
The Konstantelos family was notified days later that the restraining order hearing was moved to the Site Judge in Chatsworth. When all parties arrived in Chatsworth, the Judge had been changed again to the Presiding Judge of San Fernando. The Konstantelos family had witnesses and declarations proving Mr. mcGowan committed perjury before the court several times while on probation. They had witness and video tape to support their request for the restraining order. This included a declaration signed under perjury by the principal at Del Sur that Mr. McGowan had called the school saying he would not hurt or kidnap the children, in direct violation of the restraining order. What man in his 50's calls an elementary school and says this? Was he thinking of Kidnapping the children at one point?
At the hearing the Judge did not take exhibits, testimony from witnesses, declarations, etc.
Later we were told by Comm. Biachi's alleged close friend, that Bianchi told his friend, the hearing was moved from Lancaster because it was all "***" up, that our neighbor is protected for sending dozens of people away as an informant

(McGowan has said he's an informant and has named DA Michael Duarte, who went down for evidence tampering) and that our family is in "deep ***." The friend revealed Bianchi's name to the Konstantelos family the day before the "raid." Also the Konstantelos family had made a public records request to uncover a false report to DCFS they believed the "victim" in the raid made in collusion with Deputy Steve Williams, Lt. Fredricks, etc. The deadline to hand over the evidence was days away when the "raid" happened.
You can Google DA Michael Duarte and William P. McGowan's names for more info into who they are. Google their names separately.
Incidentally, at the Chatsworth hearing Mr. McGowan's Deputy Williams did not appear as sub'ed and Mr. McGowan's probation officer was kept of the stand by the court so the Konstantelos family could not question him. The Judge wiped out all restraining orders leaving the Konstantelos family vulnerable to harassment and threats of violence from McGowan and his friends and with no where to turn for help.
Many know McGowan was the unidentified neighbor in the paper b/c of what was said and b/c McGowan has been bragging and celebrating all over the acres.

So far copies of this article have been found taped or nailed etc. at the Antelope Acres Market, The Community Center, and in yards. If Mr. Konstantelos is a threat etc. why does the alleged "scared victim" and his friend keep copying and posting the article for days now? Who is harassing and intimidating who?

Looks like the Federal Protected criminal knows he can do what ever he wants and the Law is obligated to cover his ass.

maybe it's because it's a neighbor dispute and the cops had more important things to do. it started because one neighbor wanted the road bumpy and the other wanted it smooth. Now of course it's escalated into something far more serious than the little kid squabble it started as but ya all still need to grow the Hell up!! Why don't ya compromise and paitch in and make it another musical road. Oh nevermind, then ya would fight about which song to have it play!!
