Statement of the General Assembly of Occupy Los Angeles, Feb. 1, 2012:

“Occupy Los Angeles has always stood in unwavering solidarity with Occupy Oakland. After Occupy Oakland’s most recent victimization by the illegal and brutal tactics of OPD, Oakland City Council and Mayor Jean Quan, we feel it necessary to restate our unequivocal support for our comrades.

We consider every horizontally structured, autonomous group fighting for social and economic justice, and intent on providing services for the community that the government has failed to provide, as our brothers and sisters. As long as the civil government of Oakland remains derelict in creating an equal and just society, it falls to the people to provide for themselves. We support and respect Occupy Oakland’s courage and collective state of mind that we must strive for in order to enact real change in our world.

Oakland, Los Angeles and the United States have been the “playground” of the 1% and their lackeys in government for too long. We will not tolerate police brutality, the oppression of free speech and the systematic violence used against our comrades in any situation, and we will certainly not denounce or declare ourselves against those who fight for justice in a police state - particularly those adhering to our shared principles and values. An injury to one is an injury to all, with this call to denounce Occupy Oakland being only the latest in an ever-growing list.

There are only so many injuries we will allow you to inflict upon us.”

  • Where we meet, how to recover confiscated property from the San Diego Police Department, information for people were arrested, etc.


Have you been mistreated by the Police? Have your First Amendment rights been violated? Have you been arrested for nothing, only to have the charges "unfiled" but held over your head for up to a year?
  • NEW First read this document:
  • Make a Complaint: How to Make a Police Complaint
    • Use this form: Complaint Form
    • Forms also available in the lobby of City Hall.
    • Citizen's Review Board member says we do NOT need names & badge numbers. File the complaint & it's up to SDPD to determine who the officer was (But it is better if we have them, of course).
  • ALSO: By telephone or in writing to
    • SDPD Internal Affairs Unit, 1401 Broadway, MS 709, San Diego CA 92101, (619) 531-2801
    • Complaints made to the Citizens Review Board do not necessarily make it into the officers' personnel files
    • Read this: Making Police Compliants That Stick
  • Also, consider making a CLAIM against the city for your BOND money if charges were never filed. They have 45 days to reject the claim, then you file a lawsuit. It costs $400 to file unless you can claim low income.

What you say and do can hurt you in court -- This is what I advise my clients to say when confronted by a law enforcement officer: "Officer, please understand I refuse to talk with you until I consult with my attorney. I also refuse to consent to any search of these premises or any other premises under my control, or in which I have a possessory, proprietary, or privacy interest, including my car, my body, or effects.

  • To check if someone is in jail check this website:
    • It usually takes about 6 hours for someone who has been arrested to pop up here. This site will tell you their charges, bail, etc. Jail's number is (619) 615-2700. The jail won't tell you much if anything that is not on the website. Please check this website before saying someone is in or out of jail to avoid confusion.
  • FYI -- Penal Code 849.5. In any case in which a person is arrested and released and no accusatory pleading is filed charging him with an offense, any record of arrest of the person shall include a record of release. Thereafter, the arrest shall not be deemed an arrest, but a detention only.
