Maybe because there aren't many Mexicans and Blacks living in Calabasas. And let me ask you something: Were you beaten? Jailed? Abused? Was your car impounded? NO? You were probably treated politely, and sent on your way. See, like it or not, most crimes committed in SoCal are by Blacks and Hispanics. That's not racist, it's a statistic. So if the numbers are there, then it's not racist for a cop to take a little closer look at you as you drive through an all white neighborhood. You don't like it, start cleaning up your own community.
When my Grandfather came here from Italy, and settled in New York, his little Italian community policed itself. They knew that any crime committed by Italians would reflect on the whole race. So they took matters into their own hands.
When I used to play football, if one player screwed up, WE ALL had to do bear crawls. So we made sure OURSELVES that nobody screwed up. Are you starting to get my point?
Stop whining and open your eyes. There is a reason cops give a second look to certain groups of people. Calling them "racists" is not going to change that reality.

I am a white mother of 2 young girls and married. I volunteer in my community and I take my girls to tennis, ballet and piano. I am what people would consider an upstanding person in my community. I have had problems with the sheriff's department out here. And, no, they are not polite when they pull you over. I have been screemed at by them and I don't even argue with them. I have called them for help with a roudy bar that was affecting my neighborhood a 1/2 mile away and they claimed that I was crazy and they didn't see anything wrong. Several neighbors even called and they told every single one of us the same thing and that we were the only ones calling. I hate to say it but I don't trust the cops out here. They are out for their own pocketbook and harrass the residents of a fairly quiet town. Whatch the movie the Changling and I feel like that is almost what we have here.

I am a resident of Agoura and I resent the way cops stop people driving old cars or cheap cars, or the way they stop people of color. The cops that I have run into don't even seem to have a good grasp of legal basics, and at the same time, I think they also dislike Agourans. I don't think that cops only "protect and serve" their own families.

p.s. To clarify that last sentence, I think cops only "protect and serve" their own families and communities. I would like to see more community policing in Agoura and less harassment of the working poor.

Irony is calling the Lost Hills Police Station to make a complaint about the police in Agoura and having the officer on duty state that he is "offended." Nan

PASADENA, read up, Mitrice skeletal remains were found and the sheriffs ignored the coroner's request to leave the scene and bones in tact. Ignorance is sure bliss, and so are you. Do you truly believe money is what Mr. Richardson seeks? If so, refer to the previous comment. If not, please visit BringMitriceJustice.org

Mark, what is your logic and what are your standards? I just don't understand your logic here--there are different forms of abuse that come with power, physical abuse is only one form. And its not all about you--open your eyes. Living in Agoura I have seen a decline in the policing--and I know its difficult work, but being a public servant IS difficult work. nay

I love the Constitution--and cops need probable cause. It sounds as if you enjoy harassing others because they look different from you? I don't understand what you are saying here--are you saying you need racial profiling in order to do good policing?
