To Have Residents Arrested If They Criticize Him In Meetings!
On 10-4-22, one month before his try at reelection, candidate James Butts stated in a City Council meeting that he would not allow anyone to criticize him or any council member in meetings! He said he'd mute their microphone and have them arrested if they din't leave the podium! Butts was reelected with barely half of the votes, more than 30% less than his last try!
Looking like a 300 lb 8 year-old, Butts nervously waits to be judged on a "Domestic Violence" restraining order filed against him. See how scared he looks in this video!
Credit for both the above picture and video is given to the blog-site...
In Meetings, he's a Bully.
In a Court-house, he's a Punk!
Election 2022: James Butts barely avoids
run-off election with only 53.66% of the vote!!!!!
James Butts Negligently and illegally
AN L.A.P.D Officer, and then blames the officer!
to see all the evidence that crooked mayor
James Butts and his kiss up supporters do promote and/or actually engage in violence and/ or intimidation against Butts' critics.
In October of 2023, it was reported by 2 media outlets, The LA Wave newspaper and the website "2urbangirls" that the City of Inglewood has offered $425,000.00 to the injured female victim of James Butts' "Reckless Driving." The case against Butts for the disabling the police officer has not been settled yet.
Question? Will the murderers of these 4 victims ever be found? Not if the impetus of that search are the lazy, prejudiced views of James Butts, who apparently believes that "black people" will always kill "black people."
(see his posting below)
"SHOCKING? YES..." BUT HARDLY SURPRISING FOR JAMES BUTTS!"
*First, a disclaimer... This website stands behind every video, opinion and criticism regarding James T. Butts. However, this 2022 Facebook posting was so shocking, so insulting to Inglewood's residents, that it was not placed on this website for months, to see if it could be disproved that it was actually posted by... James T. Butts. No such proof was ever found and no word of any denial from James T. Butts that he was the author has even rumored to have occurred. And there is overwhelming evidence that he is in fact the author of this cynical, irresponsible and... racially prejudiced post.
Please read, what certainly appears to be, a reasonable request by a citizen for Inglewood's Mayor and Police Dept. to work to decrease homicides in Inglewood, with no specific race of the killers or victims mentioned. Victims of homicides in Inglewood are NOT just African-American. And because the killers are very rarely identified, they could also be of a number of races and ethnicities. But in a response to the citizen's request, James T. Butts, for some unknown reason, sharpens the subject to say that the public should not expect a Mayor and Police Department to have any way to, or even have any opinion on how to, decrease, specifically, "Black on Black" killings. Yes, James Butts specifically referred to "...stopping black people from killing black people." He didn't mention Latinos killing Latinos or white people killing white or Latino or black people, or asians killing anyone or being killed by anyone who weren't black.
He ONLY mentioned "...stopping black people from killing black people," as if those are the only people who are killed or do the killings in Inglewood, which they are NOT.
James Butts' first campaign for mayor focused on his
being a law enforcement expert who knew how to make the
city safer, and while as Mayor, Butts regularly reminds everyone about all his police experience. But in his posting, James T. Butts appears to imply, as unbelievable as it is that any mayor would imply such a thing, that reducing any "black" deaths in Inglewood would be... impossible.
James Butts basically tells the citizen, "Hey, there are always going to be a lot of black people murdered in Inglewood, you want to decrease murders in Inglewood? You do it!" Yes, that's "mayor," James T. Butts, saying that. What more evidence is needed to prove that James Butts is not focused, not competent, or even cares about, the important issues that all mayors are REQUIRED to address.
This is the picture and title on one of James Butts' accounts, the same exact picture on theposting above.
***The posting above is so heinous that if James Butts ever does provide evidence that he didn't author it, and its been a while since he posted it, his denial will be posted in the body of this passage. But it would be very hard to fake this posting; it has his name, corresponding to his current Facebook account, that had other recent postings and it has his personal picture on it. It seems very unlikely that "Mayor" James Butts would allow a fake account with his name and picture on it to remain active.
James Butts Loses
An Historic Law Suit on August 20, 2015 !!!!
HE Doesn't Appeal the Decision !!
FACT! Crooked Mayor James Butts ended up spending almost $200,000.00 in precious tax dollars on a frivolous lawsuit to destroy (and remove from the internet) some of the incriminating Youtube videos about him on this very website. Inglewood's City Council was the first city council in U.S. history to sue for copyright to keep public records, parts of city council videos, from being used for political speech.
On August 20, 2015 Judge Michael Fitzgerald stated that the videos in question, found on this site, represent "...core First Amendment speech commenting on political affairs and matters of public concern" and later penalized the Council $117,000.00 for filing a frivolous lawsuit.
James T. Butts Jr. is an angry and dishonest man
with a dark and scandalous past.
James T. Butts Jr. has deliberately violated the Law and Civil Rights as a cop and as a Mayor.
As Santa Monica's Police Chief, the case "Butts v. McNally" proved that James Butts betrayed
the trust of Santa Monica's citizens by deliberately violating the Law and Civil Rights.
As Inglewood's Mayor, James Butts has repeatedly betrayed the trust of those who voted for him.
James Butts has repeatedly lied to Inglewood's residents and paid others to do the same.
Butts has illegally abused his power as Council Chairman to bully and intimidate residents.
Butts has repeatedly helped hide dangerous police misconduct with violations of State Laws.
The L.A. County D.A. found that James Butts violated the Law and Civil Rights in Inglewood.
Butts has used Inglewood's tax dollars as his own personal legal defense fund.
Butts has used Inglewood's tax dollars as his own personal publicity fund.
Butts used almost $200,000.00 of those tax dollars on a frivolous lawsuit to limit Free Speech
James T. Butts Jr. does not respect Inglewood's residents, the Law, Civil Rights or his position.
This unethical, immoral, illegal and un-American conduct cannot be tolerated from a Mayor.
The picture showing a scowling James Butts in a white jacket, shirt and black and white tie, shows him lying, telling the public that there were no 911 tapes proving that IPD officers repeatedly failed to investigate a shooting, a shooting that an IPD Captain said he thought was an Felony that could have resulted in a murder. That Captain, Martin Sissac, who knew there were shell casings collected by officers, later lied in a Council meeting and said there was no evidence of a shooting.
James Butts repeatedly helped IPD illegally hide those 911 tapes for about 9 months.
In those tapes, you hear IPD officers say things like that IPD can't even investigate any shooting unless the victim, the person who was shot or shot at, calls them, and that if a person does get shot at, there must be a good reason why it happened.
You can hear IPD officers make those, and many other incriminating statements, at:
Also, you can see James Butts lying in another City Council meeting just a few months later, stuttering as he nervously admits to everyone that the 911 tapes he said didn't even exist, did actually exist after all, and proved serious misconduct by I.P.D..
In the video below, you also hear Mr. James Butts clumsily lying, trying to establish an alibi for IPD, the City Attorney, the Police Chief, the City Clerk and himself for their repeated lies and violations of State Law. See and hear all this at:
This Document Is Just One Of Many Which Prove That James Butts Violates Civil Rights!
JUST ONE OF JAMES BUTTS"
On November 12th, 2013, the letter to the left was sent to Inglewood's City Council by the specific division of the L.A.County D.A.'s office that investigates "Fraud" and "Corruption" by public officials.
In the 4-page letter, the D.A. repeatedly condemns James Butts' actions as illegal and documents the well-known fact that Butts abuses his power as Council Chairman to mislead the public, quiet those who criticize him or his allies, or who expose serious issues that Butts and the City Council have refused to address. The letter states that James Butts repeatedly violated the Law and Civil Rights.
James Butts has done this for years, with shameless impunity. However,, but although he reduced the amount of illegal actions he engaged in temporarily right after the DA found him guilty, James Butts soon was right back doing what he loves to do, abuse his power as Mayor to violate the Law and Civil Rights to hide his misconduct and any information that he doesn't want the public to know about.
