A fireworks accident Sunday sent a man and a 10-year-old girl to the hospital with serious hand injuries.

The adult has been identified as Joe Marsh, a Humboldt County Sheriff's deputy. Sheriff's spokeswoman Brenda Godsey confirmed Tuesday that Marsh is employed by the department and said that he was off-duty at the time of the accident.

CopWatchers Arrested in Eureka!

Last night (Monday, March 15th) two copwatchers (of the three on patrol) were arrested on Broadway in Eureka.  Humboldt County Sheriff Deputy, Joseph "Harsh" Marsh, seemed anxious to arrest anyone observing- he was not happy to see CopWatch on patrol.

The arrests were a major abuse of authority.

The cop confiscated our cameras, too.

We were released few minutes after midnight on Tuesday, March 16th.


More later.  Keep watchin'!





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.
