City Council defied the Defund the Police demands made repeatedly at the last three Council sessions & direct action protests outside their homes by accepting at $750,000 federal grant for more SCPD enforcement (2 “Community Service” Officers) targeting minors and tobacco sellers. More expensive and repressive drug war and more powers to an unrestrained local police force that is neither transparent, accountable, nor a peace force.
The D.A. and the SCPD have not dropped inflated and groundless felony charges against MARTY MIRABEL (“PIRATE”) for defending a friend’s vehicular home from a massive police raid in violation of CDC “shelter-in-place” guidelines. His next hearing is October 6th.
Keith McHenry, Food Not Bombs activist, continues to face criminal charges for moving several tubs across the street attempting to assist homeless people dealing with Mills massive police raid on the encampment next to the downtown Post Office back in March.
CITY AND COUNTY AUTHORITIES HAVE DESTROYED THE SHELTER-IN-PLACE BENCHLANDS ENCAMPMENT AT SAN LORENZO PARK, “REPLACING” IT WITH A “MANAGED” CAMPGROUND FOR A FAR SMALLER NUMBER.
THE CITY-MANAGED TENT CITY ACROSS FROM THE “HOUSING SMIDGEONS” COMPLEX AT 115 CORAL ST. WAS DISPERSED ON FRIDAY AUGUST 14 WITH NUMEROUS RESIDENTS CLAIMING THEY WERE GIVEN INADEQUATE NOTICE AND INSUFFICIENT SHELTER ALTERNATIVES.
VENDORS RESIST BEING ATTACKED BY CITY ORDINANCE AND POLICE: See Abbi Samuels Facebook Page for August 16.
