Listen to the KMUD show about the police video, discovered to Dale K. Galipo, the attorney representing Jacob's parents in a wrongful death lawsuit :
Unfortunately, attorney Dale Galipo's voice gets overrun two times when he's saying important things, like a voice-over accidentally happened in the engineering.

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

I saw copwatch holding signs and being heard down 7th street in Eureka yesterday. A member of CopWatch stopped and spoke to me. I told her a story of why I thought that CopWatch is such a good organization and that I had been subject to police bullying. I wanted to share my incident with you.
