Los Angeles, CA--The sheriff's department Monday continued to withhold a station house videotape of a woman who went missing after being let go from the Malibu-Lost Hills sheriff's station, while public pressure to release the tape increased, and the missing woman's girlfriend and family sought public help to find her. What is there to hide? The longer they stall, the more po'd the rest of us get. well, me anyway.
Sunday, about 70 people — many on motorcycles — rallied to have the videotape of Mitrice Richardson, 24, of South Los Angeles, made public.

Richardson was released on her own recognizance just after midnight Sept. 17 from the sheriff's Malibu-Lost Hills station after being booked on two misdemeanor counts for not paying her nearly $90 dinner tab at a Malibu restaurant...

...Her father, Michael Richardson, wants to see videotape from the sheriff's station, which he believes will show his daughter was too mentally ill to be released in the middle of the night in an isolated area 40 miles from her home...
...Sunday's rally and motorcade was held to make community members aware that Richardson may be on the streets of South Los Angeles, and to prompt the release of the videotape from the Lost Hills station, said family spokeswoman Jasmyne Cannick.

...The county Board of Supervisors is offering a $10,000 reward for finding Richardson, and the Malibu City Council was to vote on topping that with a $15,000 reward as well. Nevertheless, the girl's father blasted Malibu Police for refusing to waive fees to pay for sheriff's department presence at the rally.

Michael Richardson said he wanted to hold Sunday's rally in Malibu, but could not afford the city's fee to stage the rally, and could not get the mayor to waive the fee or reserve parking for the motorcade...Mayor Stern could not reached for comment, but state law does not allow him to waive fees or reserve parking without a city council vote. So vote. Do a group text message. That would take what, 10 minutes? It IS the 21st century. You don't have to go put your wigs and robes on.

...Richardson is black, about 5 feet 5 inches and 125 pounds, with tattoos on her lower abdomen and behind her neck. She was last seen wearing a brown Bob Marley T-shirt and blue jeans.

Her family asked anyone with information as to her whereabouts to call Los Angeles police at (213) 485-2531. Evidently the County Board of Supervisor's nor Malibu police or north LA County Sheriff's department want to hear from us, the unclean masses.
