Step Down from office: Justice for Diana Gonzalez

San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis should be held accountable for failing to protect 19 year old Diana Gonzalez a mother of a then 10-month old baby who was viciously attacked by her estranged husband Armondo Perez in October 2010. Diana immediately filed a police report stating that Perez kidnapped, raped and choked her. Armondo Perez was questioned and DA Bonnie Dumanis declined to file charges. Two weeks later, Diana was brutally murdered by Armondo Perez.  Diana's body was found in a men's bathroom at the college she attended.

Nearly two years later on Tuesday, August 20, 2012, Armondo Perez was finally brought to justice after being arrested months earlier in Tijuana, Mexico.

However, justice will not be fully served until Bonny Dumanis steps down from her duty to serve and protect as the San Diego Distrtict Attorney. Dumanis failed to save and protect a victim of rape and domestic violence and after she was faced with public criticism for her handling of the case, this was her response to the public:

"I am very, very, deeply sorry for this loss and I think the community is sorry for this loss," she said. "We did what we are legally required to do. The one that’s responsible for this is Armando Perez."


Bonnie Dumanis and the criminal justice system failed to protect and should be held accountable.  As a result of this gross negligence, ask San Diego District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis to step down from office. Help seek justice for Diana and her family!

      Why iIt is the commitment and obligation of those elected in office to act and perform immediately in the best interest of the People. The D.A. takes an oath to uphold the U.S. and State Constitutions. Whether the crime to be done by omission or the actual act itself, nether one acceptable. For fear of being wrong in a quick judgment call is grounds for discharge, due to inability to perform under pressure and perform duties accepted with the position.

      The D.A.’s oath was with the people to respond and act decisively and quickly to protect all. What happened no one else can take responsibility for, except for the assailant and the D.A.’s indecisions.

      When I was young, children were well mannered, respectful and we felt a sense of security because all parents looked out for all children, it was natural. Over the years things have changed, money became harder to make, some parents paid less attention to their children and as a result, the crime rate soared. As an investigator, I see crime all the time and it seems like allot of people out there would rather steal than try to make an honest buck.

      The bottom line is, the people in the legal community, attorneys, police officers, parole officers, judges are overwhelmed with case beyond belief and they often make decisions based on budget, their career aspirations and not human ones….we’ve lost our way as a people

      oh my god! what is wrong with the this district attorney who saw that diana needed help. i truly feel sorry for the child she left behind who is now a little victim and will have to grow up without a mommy, all because a stupid and selfish district attorney did not want to pursue justice. now had diana been one of the da's family or friends, she would have been given the m ost respect and attention.
