All the rest of the evidence in the Mason case has disappeared, the City Attorney will not talk to him and Linda Ortega, one of the arresting officers cannot be reached and her supervisor has not returned Mason's calls. Is this a Kafka novel??
When Mason was busted all of his traps and cages were confiscated and they were not listed on the list of confiscated items sent to him by the police department. There were 15-20.
At first he was told by staff at West Valley that they were there and at South LA. They were not. Then he was told they were at East Valley, he went there and they were not. Then he was told they would be delivered to West Valley and they would be taken over to his house. Ron told them, "thanks but no thanks," and that he'd pick them up at West Valley. They were not there. This chase has gone another since October 11. Finally, yesterday Lt. Boswell informed Ron that they had no idea where his traps and cages were.
All the rest of the "evidence" has disappeared.
I already told you Deputy City Attorney Cocek, who will be prosecuting Mason's case has never returned Mason's phone calls. He went and talked to another Deputy City Attorney and told him that Linda Ortega, one of the arresting officers had never returned any of his phone calls. he was told then to ask for a supervisor. No supervisor would talk to him as they "were out of the office." Apparently none ever returned to the office because none ever returned his calls.
Since Mason is a suspect in a possible 597(B) charge, you'd think as least one of the investigating detectives would want to talk to him since he is eager to talk to them.
Now even the cages have disappeared. Perhaps Mason will now disappear so he can't talk to anyone else.
In any event, you get to watch the Mason bust at 2:00pm and 10:00 pm on City Channel 35. Maybe they will show Muffin being strangled or all the extremely unhealthy kittens. Remember, Boks said all of the kittens were killed because they were irremediably suffering. However, I saw with my own eyes kittens who appeared bright eyed when I was at his house a few days later and the Daily News photos show many apparently healthy cats and kittens.
In my mind the only criminals in this case are Boks, Boswell, Ortega, Cocek and maybe a few other raiders. I like Dr. Rao and will not consider him to be a criminal, but doubt that he found the kittens actually irremediably suffering.
