LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Coliseum Commissioner Rick Caruso is calling today for the resignation of the Coliseum’s Executive Director Pat Lynch. Caruso has stalwartly maintained that raves are an inappropriate and dangerous use of the city’s public facilities.
“I have long been concerned about raves and have been steadfast in my insistence that they be banned as they are not safe and cannot be made safe. We have now learned that the fox was left guarding the hen house since our staff in charge of planning security at raves was also secretly working for the rave organizer. Our Executive Director Pat Lynch was aware of this clear conflict of interest, approved it and hid it from the Commissioners. Mr. Lynch needs to resign immediately, this matter should be referred to the DA, and I will say it again – raves need to be banned at public facilities,” said Caruso.
