When Richards was arrested I was very happy because this elected official has drain the fund from our city and the City of Compton. The recall launched by Lynwood residents tire of curruption did not stop him from having power and control of the deal done at City Hall. Let's hope that this criminal investigation puts Richards away from politics and away from the City of Lynwood residents money.

Thanks a lot Mr. Richards for single handedly destroying the City of Lynwood and the moral of the residents.

As a brilliant man that I once considered and with the power that you possessed due to the other crooked council of your era, which i'm sure no one would have ever thought you would be busted the way you were. I mean your entire family and friends were the one's that ran the city. Unfortunately, some of them are still there....like your LAZY SISTER, LAZY GOD DAUGHTER, LAZY NEPHEW, and other LAZY FRIENDS that do nothing but walk up and down the city hall socializing and pretending that they are such valuable assets to the city. Some of them though, lock themselves in their offices, as if they don't work there or in order for the public not to find out that people associated to you still exist. Sort of like the "6th COUNCIL SYNDROME" or the "6th ELEMENT".

I guess you didn't become a councilman to help and benefit the city, but rather for the benefit of your family and friends.

I hope that you pay dearly for what you've done to the City of Lynwood. I hope that you rott in prison....you know, your soon to be new home. Then again, I don't know what type of political ties you have with other higher connected politicians that might come to your rescue the way they saved OMAR BRADLEY--another piece of EXCREMENT.

I will say one thing "IF IN THE END OF ALL OF THIS, YOU ARE NOT PROSECUTED AND YOU ARE NOT GIVEN AT LEAST 5 YEARS IN PRISON, I WILL KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THIS THOUGHT TO BE GREAT COUNTRY, IS NOT WHAT IT IS PROCLAIMED TO BE"

WHY? WHY? WHY? ARE HIS FAMILY MEMBERS STILL WORKING THERE?????????
have any of the council members know the term NEPOTISM?????????
IF THIS IS TRUE I NEED THEIR NAMES IN ORDER TO BEGIN A RECALL AGAINST ALL OF THE CURRENT COUNCIL MEMBERS WHO ARE AWARE..... WE DO NOT NEED INCOMPENTENT "LEADERS"

Paul, I'm counting the days for your trial to begin. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the current Ciy employees will be called to testify on your behalf. Yes, your behalf.

Why? Because all these year's you've provided a roof over their heads. And, no matter what they saw, they turned the other way.

I'm counting the days . . .

Aside from City staff, who else has "Paul's back"? Hmmm! Let's see . . Pat Shields, Lorna Hawkins, Loreen Reid, Sylvia Herron (this one surprised me), the Calderon's, and many congragations in Lynwood. Yes, this shouldn't come to you as surprise.

Ask for the SELAC and Muriel Estates contracts Both began in 1999 WITH CITY FUNDS and still not completed. Why? Look at the individuals behind these . . . members of certain churches.

I just hope that one of the departments looking into Lynwood (D.A. or FBI) is also reviewing these contracts.
