[UPDATED, W/Perp Walk Photo!] Carlos Bustamante, Santa Ana Councilmember, Arrested on Sex Crime Charges

See updates--including a HILARIOUS mugshot of Busted-amonte AND a perp-walk shot--at the end of this post

ORIGINAL POST, JULY 2, 5 P.M.: Just got a press release from the Orange County District Attorney's office that SanTana councilmember Carlos "Busty" Bustamante was arrested this afternoon and is being charged for a litany of sex crimes.

The full kit-'n'-caboodle of charges, according to the press release: "six felony counts of false imprisonment, three felony counts of assault with the intent to commit a sexual offense, one felony count each of stalking, attempted sexual battery by restraint, and grand theft by false pretense, and one misdemeanor count each of battery, assault, sexual battery, and attempted sexual battery with a sentencing enhancement allegation for committing the offenses as a result of sexual compulsion and for the purpose of sexual gratification."

Damn, son! 

Bustamante, of course, has a long history of being a pig. More--much more--as the situation becomes clearer. Press conference tomorrow--see you there!

UPDATE, 8 PM: According to the Orange County Sheriff's Department, Bustamante--who listed his occupation not as Republican politician but as "consultant"--is in custody inside the county's central jail intake center. He will likely remain there until either he or his brother, Alfonso Bustamante, pays $100,000*** in bail. He is scheduled to appear in court on July 5.

UPDATE,
4 AM, JULY 3, 2012: Home in time for Jimmy Kimmel Live! Jail deputies must not have liked to have Bustamante around or, on the contrary, perhaps he's related to two or three of them. In what is probably a speed record, the officers released him at 11:23 p.m. last night after about six hours. Their normal practice is to discharge people at 3 or 4 a.m. when it's most inconvenient.

***Officials later changed the bail amount to $0, according to OCSD records.
 
UPDATE, 11 A.M., JULY 3, 2012: Well, this isn't a surprise: Carlos Bustamante is a wanker.

Well, when I enter "counter example", the first link that comes up is the Wikipedia.org entry which is a very good discussion. Briefly, what it means is that if you make a blanket statement ("all polar bears are white" possibly false but not provably so), all I have to do is come up with one exception to prove you wrong ("No Mexican politician can be a good person", easy to refute). Again, to repeat myself, if you speak in absolutes about groups, you're pretty well guaranteed to be wrong. I'm not aware of  any cases where the OCW draws blanket conclusions from limited evidence, you'll have to cite at least one example to prove me wrong.

OK, here's some reality for you, a few citations do not prove your point, as I pointed out in my comment, above. You obviously didn't get what I said in the first place, try re-reading it and actually giving it a think this time. Some search terms you can use to learn about thinking logically: "Anecdotal evidence" "counter example"

So I'm a dumbshit because I point out the fact that Gustavo's corrupt relatives give him plenty of subject matter. Got it.

Bill, I googled "counter example" and all kinda crazy shit came up. Journalistically, however, if "a few citations do not prove your point," I'd say the OC Weakly has been misleading us.
