Ex-L.A. prosecutor allegedly runs amok at SFO
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 1/6/11 | Henry K. Lee, Chronicle Staff Writer

A former Los Angeles deputy city attorney has been charged with assaulting police with a pole after creating a scene at San Francisco International Airport in which she vandalized a coffee kiosk, authorities say.

Angela West, 50, a Harvard Law School graduate, was seen by airport police officers smashing merchandise, milk containers and other food items with a 3-foot-long metal pole at a Peet's Coffee kiosk at SFO on Christmas Eve, said San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

When officers tried to speak to her, West "raged" at them and began swinging the pole, which she had taken from a janitor's cart, Wagstaffe said.

An officer had to use a chair to fend off at least 10 blows, authorities said. West then calmed down and sat in a booth, only to start throwing items at the officers, Wagstaffe said.

When the officers tried to arrest her, she kicked one of them in the groin, Wagstaffe said. After being subdued, West shouted out that she was a lesbian . . .

10 shots with a pipe at an officer? She’s lucky she didn’t get ventilated.

“A 50 year old Lesbian? At the San Fransicko Airport? A Harvard degree “


Given this info, I would have replied:

“There’s probably a dozen on this concourse alone. Can you narrow that down a bit ? “

I’m telling ya, we gotta do something about those Harvard Law School graduates. The country isn’t safe with them running around loose.

Please, no pictures!

I would imagine the SF-based LEOs are very experienced with EDPs

She essentially shouted "I'm untouchable!"

No news there.

You are correct sir. She could have killed them with it. She truly is lucky to be alive. I dare say most cops would not receive 10 swings before shooting her. It appears they showed remarkable restraint.

California Bar profile shows her with a Chicago address. Currently inactive. If you wish to send her an email, her address is: anangel60@aol.com. Could it be another AA Harvard grad?

So why didn’t they just shoot her? Cops are damned quick to shoot other folks just because they can see that there is something in a fellow’s hand or because they think a guy might be thinking about reaching into his pocket to get a gun that just might be there. There wasn’t even a dog nearby for them to shoot so they surely should have shot her. What is so special about the woman with the cudgel?

As soon as she announced that she was a lesbian, use of force became a civil rights issue with potential to end a career or to interfere with future promotion decisions. The usual “tase them at the least provocation” strategy went out the window at that point.

A 50 year old Harvard trained lawyer that also happens to be a lesbian.

She’s probably just menopausal and a little twitchy over it.

...at a Peet's Coffee kiosk at SFO...

She should have gone to the Klein's Deli at the end of the concourse. Better food there, but the mustard is SPICY!

Kep phrase: A Harvard law school graduate...


They did not shoot her, did they?

A lot of cops would have shot her for attacking them with a deadly weapon and/or refusing to obey their commands.

“Doesn’t anyone ever walk amok? Seems so much easier..”

Running amok will get you a LOT of attention.

I tried to mosey amok once. All I got were a few curious glances.

Yeah, really. In Phoenix a few years ago some chick ran amok in the airport. Security restrained her in a quite room. When someone went back in to check, she strangled herself trying to get free.
