a partial POLICE STATE UPDATE & VIDEO recommendations (pg9 Days of Action 2012 booklet)

a partial POLICE STATE UPDATE

The Police state has leapt forward in the last year on every level. At the federal level we now have unmanned drones flying over our cities and states courtesy of the CIA. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2012/0616/Drones-over-America.-Are-they-spying-on-you

We have the codification in law of indefinite detention without trial. When the current president signed the NDAA National Defense Authorization Act he signed a law that would allow for the arrest and indefinite detention of citizens without trial.   http://www.aclu.org/blog/tag/ndaa

The government had been doing this to the undocumented for years in detention centers run by ICE in the U.S. and by the CIA and Military abroad. http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1620097/pg1

We have the Justice department conspiring with local government to deprive patients of their life saving medicine. The Hummingbird dispensary was driven out of business and the city still will not permit others to fill the need for cannabis based treatments in the community.

The local government has gone to the extreme of further criminalizing sleep in the summer of 2012, making it a misdemeanor to sleep outside in the city.

They were following in the footsteps of the county board of supervisors that had used a phony emergency to outlaw dissent at the courthouse. 

The county action was a reaction to their inability to respond to the issues exposed by Occupy Eureka. The District Attorney and other county government conspired to create a climate of fear about the protest and then used violent repression to remove the people temporarily from in front of the courthouse. http://www.times-standard.com/localnews/ci_20271861/humboldt-supervisors-enact-urgency-ordinance-protest-hours-limited?source=pkg

The county refusal to address the problems that the Occupy Movement planted on their doorstep is why the police state thrives. http://www.humboldt.edu/ccrp/total-population-below-poverty-level-redwood-coast-region

In what might be the most egregious affront the City of Eureka has hired Murl Harpham to be the police chief. The hiring is illegal. He is over 65 and has worked for EPD for more than 25 years. Both require his mandatory retirement. He is also When a local activist came to the council meeting to bring this criminal act by the city to the attention of the public she was censored on the public access broadcast and the city website.

DA says Due To Budget, He Will Not Prosecute Most Misdemeanors, But Cops Can Still JAIL PEOPLE With No Charges!

  Since this announcement, Gallegos' office has prosecuted many non-violent misdemeanors.  And the 48  hour law (CA Penal Code 825) is not supposed to allow "law enforcement" to jail someone for 48 hours with no expectations of charges.  It is required that an arrested person, in jail, is brought in front of a judge or magistrate AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to be charged with the crime for which they are locked up.  It is not a given that someone must be in jail for 48 hours (or more, with holidays and weekends) if the DA KNOWS he will not be charging!   ~Redwood Curtain CopWatch

Humboldt County District Attorney Paul Gallegos is warning local law enforcement officials that his office may be unable to prose­cute most misdemeanor offenses if his budget doesn’t increase with the coming fiscal year.

Freezing Weather and Eureka Cops Continue To Terrorize People in the Bush

Subject: homeless and freezing weather

Dear Chief Nielsen,

Again I must complain about the work that [Murl] Harpham and Sanchez do out in the bush. Sanchez wielding a machete around homeless people who's only "crime" is poverty and Harpham with his ridiculous "holier than thou" attitude do nothing to bring real safety or respect to this community.

KILLINGS BY POLICE

Christopher Arrion Burgess, 16 year-old Native American boy. He was pepper sprayed by a probation officer who stormed into a house where Christopher was watching a movie with friends. EPD officer Terry Liles, who had pulled Christopher out of sleep about 3 years earlier (13 years old) and beat him until the boy's skull was fractured, chased Christopher on October 23, 2006, and shot him in the heart. Killed him. And this, after years of Christopher being systematically criminalized, and still being a kind and much-loved kid.
