This time it was Morrison Park

The woman who was murdered yesterday lived in Morrison Park, although the O.C. Register reported that the crime occurred in the adjacent Floral Park Neighborhood, which is Mayor Miguel Pulido’s neighborhood.

“Saddler’s body was found by her son shortly after 2 p.m., when he went to her home in the 2700 block of North Lowell Lane, near Memory Lane,” according to the O.C. Register.

According to my sources, this home had been robbed previously this year.  And about a year ago a judge who lives in West Floral Park was robbed in her own home.  This time the repercussion of the crime was far more serious.

Tomorrow Pulido is opening his new “leadership” office in downtown Santa Ana.  Now would be a great time for him to show some leadership, wouldn’t it?

We need more policemen on the street.  We need more programs to keep kids from straying into gangs.  We need more libraries and more parks.  We need a Mayor who will stand up and show some spine.  After 20 years, business as usual isn’t cutting it anymore.  And now people are being murdered in their homes, in Floral Park.

My prayers go out to the family of the woman who was slain in such brutal fashion.  Her children saw the aftermath and will no doubt need counseling and support.  This episode is a red flag – it is high time for Pulido and company to do what they were elected to do.  Lead us out of the bloody quagmire our city is mired in.

We need to take our city back from the criminals – but is Pulido up to the task?  We’ll find out.  I have a feeling the voters might be ready for change!
