Ms. Robbins, I am disappointed that your article is so one-sided... I know that you had a deadline and we both know that the DA can't comment but to print only one point of view is so News-Press-like. I expected better balance from the Independent. Many people in the law enforcement and legal communities read the claims made by Team Lance and see them for what they often are....huge leaps to self-serving conclusions filled with hyperbole and misstatements of facts. Please endeavor to present a more fair and balanced account of the story in the future.
On DUI Case Against Peter Lance Could Be Collapsing
Posted on August 9 at 1:33 p.m.
Interested1...The officer's name was just fine before a criminal defendant started making wild allegations in the News-Press. In fact, I heard that she was Officer of the Year last year. The SBPD wouldn't have hired her if she hadn't passed an extensive background check. Most people don't know what real evidence is compared to speculation, conjecture, twisted truths and false allegations. Peter Lance has tried to convince his readers that he has facts and evidence but this is not the case....so the officer doesn't need to clear her name to you sir.
On Shredded Documents Dominate DUI Hearing

Apparently you don't know Darryl Genis. I have no doubt that DWG is actually him. He's never let ethics or the State Bar stop him from speaking his mind or influencing his actions. It's attorneys like him that give the profession a bad name. His enormous ego and low character are well known in the SB legal community.

Ok, stop speculating.... There were two uniformed SBPD detectives and four SBSO Bailiffs in court last Tuesday and on Monday there were two uniformed SBPD officers and 4-5 SBSO Bailiffs. Normally, there are one or two bailiffs in a courtroom but because of Cirque du Lance, there were more. Perhaps the convicted criminal who complained that she was intimidated gets a little nervous when she sees some cops....I'm just sayin'.
On Judge Tosses Lance from Court

Details you say? Yes, I was there, Hill took control of his court room for the most part....a welcome change from last week. He chastised Genis and Lance for their behavior and promised to hold them accountable with a sanction, exclusion or contempt charge if necessary. Hill let Genis run on a bit but then again, who can really keep that yap under control? Hill himself carried on a bit as well, but what can you do there? Home grown politico with a lengthy criminal past, Cruzito Cruz, had an outburst that got him ejected by the bailiffs. Not to be outdone, Lance just couldn't keep that enormous ego in check and was asked to leave the courtroom for his outbursts. When he didn't move fast enough and started to go off about Chicago and some other nonsense, the bailiffs escorted him out by force. It was quite circus-like....you would have enjoyed it. After all of that, the only business that got done - two more convicted drunk drivers signed a bunch of handwriting exemplars.
On What Gag Order?

Ira Distenfield and his wife Linda should be commended for their work on On Patrol. In addition to being extremely entertaining, the show serves the community by educating the public about how Police Officers do their jobs. Most of us get our ideas about how police work is done from the media, television and movies....which is often more "Hollywood" than reality. A show like On Patrol allows us to see the challenges the officers face and the kind of people they deal with everyday. Thank you again to the Distenfields!

14noscams......Don't put words in Officer Battaglia's mouth unless you are quoting her. It is perfectly normal for officers to have slightly different accounts of the same event in part because they are different people with different perceptions, recollections and vantage points. In fact, you might worry if their reports were identical. In Ofc. Battaglia's report I don't see any contradictions with Ofc. Beutel's report. Do you have something different to support your claims? While you are at it, double check your facts regarding your claim that Ofc. Beutel made a workers comp claim against Kenny for approx. $7762...... I think you will find the truth is she never missed any work because of Mr. Kenny and the correct amount is around $800. She sounds like one tough little officer, Mr. Kenny is 6'0" 220 lbs and Ofc. Beutel is about 5' nuthin' and about half his weight. In fact its no wonder Mr.Kenny and Mr. Lance have flocked together considering that they both tried to avoid their DUIs at all costs .... Ofc. Beutel passed a rigorous background investigation.....Mr. Lance couldn't do the same.
