Jane Velez-Mitchell and Missing Malibu Resident Mitrice Richardson
A woman, Mitrice Richardson, in Malibu disappears from a police station after she leaves of her own free will and it is the police departments fault according to Jane Velez-Mitchell.
The family says that she was impaired and not herself. How could the police know this because they have no point of reference for the woman’s normal behavior? Police said she was lucid and passed a field sobriety test. She was released on an appearance ticket which Curtis Sliwa stated was a “disappearance ticket.” Sliwa states he knows this because he has been arrested 76 times. Has Mitchell or the other finger pointers considered that Richerson may have been acting peculiar because she wanted to get out of her bill and the establishment she was visiting may have let her get away with it over the disturbance that was ensuing? I have seen this played out many times and have heard it from many waitresses’ and it has worked.
The police could not win this one because if they held her the family and others they would have claimed holding her was an impropriety.
Mitchell stated “Were they so busy at 1:30 in the morning that they could not drive her home?” . . . sorry Jane the police are not a taxi service for people who break the law.
Richardson lives with her great-grandmother and NOW the parents are in the picture, I think they see dollar signs. Mom says they want her daughter home . . . really? Then why did she live with great-grand mom?
The police offered Richardson to stay at the station overnight but Richardson declined.
Sliwa stated that “Most people in lock up have mental issues.” Is he admitting to something?
These idiots on MBC are pointing the finger at the police when in reality Richardson may be missing of her own free will because of her sexual orientation and the fact that until now her family did not want to deal with this issue.
Mitchell and NBC have got to stop jumping the gun. They are among the most irresponsible reporters in the business jumping to conclusions without decent evidence and facts.
