These are only a few of things we have been told that Eureka PD's Sanchez has said to people:
"No one will miss you if I shoot you in the back of the head"
"Do you go to this church? Well I am Catholic and I do go to this church [not true], and I don't want you sleeping at my church"
"If I see you again sitting anywhere with your blanket, I will take you to jail."
"You'd be better off in prison" [to homeless and disabled woman]
"You wrote a letter calling me a liar. That's why I'm giving you a ticket."
We want to add more links and offer community and individual empowerment tools, and resources for resistance to state repression. We welcome suggestions for this resource page as well! Here's a beginning.

Gabriel Cuevas-Maldonado was shot with assault rifle by EPD officer Gary Whitmer on September 15, 2005. Mr. Maldonado was in a house when he was killed by Officer Whitmer and spoke no English.
The media and officials kept it quiet so people would not get upset. They criminalized Mr. Muldenado in the brief newspaper mention. This death was the first in a 2 and a half year killing spree by the Eureka police Deparment.

Assault rifles and semi-automatic weapons are being supplied by a large corporation (Target) and the DA. TAZERS Tazers give off a 50,000 volt blast. EPD is expecting to have a new batch of tazers soon. The body count in North America now stands at 287 after having been tasered with this "less than lethal" device. 15 Canadians and 272 Americans since 2001, 9 dead in August of this year alone. Tazers in Humboldt have been used, for instance, on a person sneaking into a concert at the Eureka Muni and people following police orders (to walk away) in Arcata.
