Sat, Jan 24: KNOW YOUR RIGHTS Training


Do you know what to do if you're stopped by the police?

Are you tired of your rights being violated?

This workshop focuses on what to do when you are stopped "on the street", in a vehicle, or anywhere you might interact with some type of police. We will talk about what your rights are, how cops try to trick you out of them, and practical ways to assert your rights. We want to share strategies and empowering education on how to survive police encounters.

Tommy McClain was Murdered by Eureka Police: AUDIO

This is from a January 20, 2015 KMUD radio newscast.  It is about the Community Shooting Review Board, a public relations stunt, a sham, created by the Eureka Police Chief after his officers killed Tommy McClain in cold blood.  Please LISTEN!!

"Community Shooting Review Board" is a SHAM

"Richie" Richard Fredrick Tis’mil Estrada was Killed by California Highway Patrol

Family, friends and supportive community members will be gathering for a candlelight vigil on Jan. 17, 2015, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Willow Creek Early Bird Market located at 40640 Highway 299 in Willow Creek.

Richie was a resident of Hoopa California and was a member of the Hoopa Tribe. He had just turned 17 on Dec. 9. Richie was tragically taken from us on Dec. 18 at approximately 2 a.m. in Willow Creek, Calif., in an altercation with the California Highway Patrol.

Richie was born to his very proud parents Carlos and Leanne Estrada, along with his womb-mate twin sister, Carleana Michele Keduesche Estrada in Upland, Calif., San Bernardino County. Richie and Carlie were welcomed by their older sister, Celina, 12 years, and 6-year-old brother Carlos Jr.

Richie was a graduate of the Hoopa Valley Tribal Child Development Program and Trinity Valley kindergarten class of 2002. At Trinity Valley, he was the 8th grade class of 2012 valedictorian. Richie was currently a Junior at Hoopa Valley High School.

Justice for Tommy McClain! "Community Shooting Review Board" Is A Sham

"Community Shooting Review Board" Is Another Ploy To Cover Up
Eureka Police Killing of Tommy McClain

 

Eureka, CA:  After Eureka Police shot and killed 22 year-old Tommy McClain in cold blood in his front yard on September 17, 2014, Eureka Police Chief Andy Mills created a “Community Shooting Review Board.” This Board is the Eureka Chief's public relations attempt to pacify public outrage, subvert any real community oversight and participation, and perpetuate the farce of independent investigation and transparency.
