Abusive Residents or Abuse of Authority?

Abusive Residents or Abuse of Authority?

June 21, 2008

As result of the ongoing hostilities between the governing body and residents, apparently the Laguna Woods Village property management company has been asked to call the Sheriff during board meetings, “because residents are getting unruly” – Refer to incident 08-101645 logged 6/3/2008 in the OC Sheriff Blotter (You can find this report at the Orange County Sheriff's web site ( by selecting "eServices" followed by "Sheriff's Blotter", then select "Laguna Woods" and the "30-Day View"”

The residents’ response to the affront, renewed calls for the firing of the property management company, along with demands for an apology to grieved residents. “PCM top management needs to be replaced now.”, reads in part a call to action,, which includes an intention to present a request to new OC Sheriff Hutchens “to investigate the Sheriff's response policy to PCM's calls like the one above, and not to allow this misuse of the sheriff's time and resources”.

Continuing, the call to action renews charges of resident intimation

Once again, GRF President Miller needs to put his hat in his hand and apologize to our community for (a) not controlling his board members (including Johns), (b) allowing Director Pompous (Stuller), Heller, and Johns' to intimidate and name call, and now (c) for allowing PCM to call the Sheriff in a further act of "senior abuse" and apparent desire to cut-off all dialog from the community.

The call to action then shines the spotlight on the local governing board

It's shameful that no one on GRF has guts enough to put a halt to PCM's out of control behavior by requesting that a replacement GM and Finance Manager be sent over from Lake Forest. Board members simply accept whatever PCM spits out as truth - too willing to believe we must have riots and owner thieves on the 2nd floor and so PCM must be protected. There is no objective evidence of residents' misbehavior on the 2nd floor - but, there is plenty relating to PCM.

The argument the concludes with what the grieved residents consider the obvious:

We are not the criminals. We are not misleading and misrepresenting those around us. We are not committing senior abuse. We are not committing white-collar crimes and having a "fraud-fest" spending our $90Million in assessments each year. Hey - WE ARE THE OWNERS of the building and everything in it - NOT PCM! We are responsible for the conduct of our board meetings and who sits on the boards - NOT the boards! This community is our investment and we are trying to protect it through participation and speaking up at board meetings.

A repeal of the ordinance Supervisor Wilson called arcane, would allow the Sheriff to patrol unincorporated areas of Orange County California, with “no financial impact”, according to supervisor Wilson – that is, a free lunch - coupled with the non-neutral word arcane, constituents of course know what is coming next!
