"He is a transient, and it is not unknown for people like Mr. Kamansky, in high-publicity crimes, to come forward and confess. We simply do not have anywhere near the quantity of evidence we need to try this case." --John F. Lynch of the district attorney's office, announcing that prosecutors had freed Mark Kamansky, 42, who had confessed to setting the fire that destroyed the historic Pan Pacific Auditorium.

OPINION
October 20, 1996
In many respects, the two candidates for the office of Los Angeles County district attorney present mirror images. Gil Garcetti, the incumbent, is an enthusiastic, polished speaker with good political instincts. John F. Lynch, his opponent, is not as comfortable or as facile in the public spotlight.

Former Pierce College acting President Mary Lee has resigned as chairwoman of the Valley Industry & Commerce Assn., association officials said Wednesday. Lee, who had been elected chairwoman six months ago, stepped down Feb. 29 because she is no longer affiliated with Pierce College, said Marvin Selter, VICA vice chairman. An election will be held for a new chairman on Monday at a regularly scheduled meeting of the association's executive committee, Selter said.
OPINION

I was surprised by your Oct. 20 editorial endorsing John F. Lynch for Los Angeles County district attorney. You stated that Gil Garcetti sees his job as district attorney "in part as preventing crime and promoting initiatives against domestic violence and gang activity," and that Lynch will focus on "tough and fair-minded prosecution," and that somehow you found Lynch's view of the job more compelling. I, for one, will be voting for Garcetti, because we need more people in office who are as interested in preventing crimes as they are in prosecuting them.

All the candidate wanted to do was invite the judge to his party. But one man's gimmicky party invitation is another man's "suspicious package." And so it was that sheriff's arson investigators blew up district attorney candidate Steve Cooley's talking greeting card to Superior Court Judge Patrick T. Meyers in the parking lot of the Norwalk courthouse. Law enforcement types who neutralized the potential threat reported only that the packet had been "rendered safe." "I can confirm that Mr.

Gil Garcetti's term as Los Angeles County district attorney has included some of the most divisive criminal trials in memory. Prosecution defeats in the first Menendez trial, the O.J. Simpson trial and the Snoop Doggy Dogg trial bewildered many voters. Other voters were angered by what they construed as political decisions by Garcetti with respect to charges filed, trial strategy employed and the evidence and witnesses presented.
