March 19, 2010 at 8:19 pm My name is Armando Vazquez an I am the Executive Directors of the KEYS Leadership Academy, a highly successful multifaceted program for at-promise youth and their families in Oxnard, Ventura County. I had plenty of run ins with Mr. Cal Remington when he ran the Ventura county probation department, I know his MO; smooth , smiles and keeps putting our kids in jail.So it is highly suspect and disingenuous when he talks about keeping kids in the community and out of jail, when he was one of the principals architects in instituting three civil gang in our community. He was a major driving force behind the building of a huge juvenile jail facility in our community, he put guns in the hands of PO, and he scoffed at collaboration with community based organization. Mr. Remington, like so many of law and order, tough on crime yolk, are an old breed of regressive law and order men,that do exceptional harm in communities. LA city council, as we say in the hood, trocha with Cal.
