Violent Pimp From Santa Ana's Harbor Boulevard Loses Appeal

Simmons: Lacking effective management skills
In April 2010, convicted felon Patrick Leo Simmons Jr. was driving around San Jose in his green Camaro when he met a prostitute, made himself her pimp and the next day relocated her to Santa Ana's notorious Harbor Boulevard.

Part of Simmons' business plan included advertising the woman's services as "Ashley" on Internet websites including in Village Voice Media's adult section, Backpage*. 

He rented a room at a nearby Travelodge motel and collected all of Ashley's money after each encounter.

But being a pimp, Simmons--who goes by the nickname "Kash"--wasn't content just to make money. He also had to show Ashley who was boss. He began physically assaulting her, according to law enforcement records.

She told one of her customers about the violence and that Simmons had refused to let her return to San Jose, where she had a young son. That customer contacted police.

Orange County prosecutors won 2010 convictions for pimping and pandering as well as battery. Though the defendant's family pleaded for mercy because he'd been abused by his father as a child, Superior Court Judge Patrick Donahue sentenced him to prison.

Simmons appealed, claiming that his public defender was "Satan" and had leaked information to the government.

This month, a California Court of Appeal in Santa Ana considered his complaints and rejected them.

Upshot: The 29-year-old will continue to serve his six-year prison sentence at California State Prison at Solano, a medium security facility.

The solution is simple. Shove a stick of dynomite up his ass and light the fuse. Case closed. But we don't do that anymore in this country. We'll just pay enormous amounts of tax payer money to feed, clothe, house, and educate him while ensuring he gets free medical care in a place where he'll be treated like a celebrity. That's what passes for justice anymore in this country and the taxpayers are forced to pull down their pants and take it.

I don't believe the statement that he was abused by his father as a child. In the black community very few fathers (sperm donors) are around. Like the song says "you won't find me 'cause the rabbit done died". Disagree with that statement.

Why would you say that? Statistically black kids are raised by their mothers, hispanic girls are molested by their fathers and white kids own everything. Disagree with that statement.

Do you ever post anything other than name calling? Name calling is childish and shows you have nothing logical to contribute.  Say something worthwhile.

As soon as reality comes into play the ones targeted by the truth claim HATE. Accept the fact that the truth is what it is.  Black fathers are absent statistically more than hispanics. Hispanics need to jump maria every night like a dog in heat, if not grab one of the kids. Whites go to strip bars and whip willy in the parking lot before they go home.  Any questions?

Obviously you've never taken a class in statistics.

Here's the deal -- you can look it up--blacks are around 12.5% of the population, yet black on black murders are around 39% of the total, year in and year out. Add around 14% black on 'white' (white here including 'Hispanic'), and you get 12.5% of the population committing a majority of murders.

Sure you can name a few infamous individuals from years ago. Day to day reality is different.

BTW, Asians have even lower crime rates than whites.
