Occupy Update! -- 2012-02-10 -- HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Sorry, no email blast was created for Feb 9. Server was down for 21 hours, but that is now resolved!

10 Feb 2012 - Fri

  • Dem State Convention at the SanDiegoConventionCenter. Agenda at 2012 Democratic State Convention Agenda. Please note: The public is generally welcomed to caucus meetings which meet Friday and Saturday. Of note to OSD would be the Environmental Caucus, Friday 4p-6p and the Progressive Caucus, Saturday, 8p-10p. Membership dues for caucuses are generally nominal (like $5 a year).
  • (9:30) Jury Trial of Benjamin Gasper continues, who despite our state's law allowing for medical marijuana cultivation for personal use, has been targeted by San Diego's District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis. This trial will be indicative of how Dumanis and those under her operate and bend the law to interpret simple cultivation to automatically infer cultivation for sales. The trial is being held at dept. 50, fourth floor, San Diego Superior Court, 220 West Broadway. More info at the Facebook event page at Benjamin Gasper - Jury Trial.
  • “Marching with Cesar” – Nine day march commemorating Cesar Chavez continues southward towards Friendship Park at the border to conclude on the 11th with a stop today in Escondido. Call 619-269-7865 or visit http://borderangels.org for details.

San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS)
  • This nuclear plant had generators replaced a VERY SHORT time ago, and they are already wearing out.
  • We still don't know the full extent of the failure because the authorities, and all Main-stream media do not tell the truth. MSNBC is owned by GE and CBS is largely owned by Westinghouse, and those two companies both make $$ from selling nuclear plant hardware.
  • OSD should consider working with LA Occupy and other environmental groups to shine a light on this. March 11 is one-year anniversary of Fukushima Disaster!
  • Note: not yet endorsed by OSD but seeking endorsement!

ANNOUNCEMENTS

See All Occupy San Diego Announcements to read all previous announcements about
  • Where we meet, how to recover confiscated property from the San Diego Police Department, information for people were arrested, etc.


POLICE COMPLAINTS

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: http://www.2momslaw.com/police_misconduct.pdf
  • 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.

Call for Witnesses:
Two occupiers are facing trial for criminal charges stemming from arrests at the Port Shut-down on December 12. Attorneys for Curtis Williams (aka Hex) and Bobby Uribe are looking for defense witnesses to dispute officer testimony and any photo or video footage of the arrests. If you witnessed Curtis's arrest, please contact attorney Laura Sheppard at lrsheppardlaw@gmail.com. If you witnessed Bobby's arrest, please contact attorney Adriane Bracciale at criminalandtrafficdefense@gmail.com.

  • Making Police Compliants That Stick -- Important info from Adriane of NLG

  • Arrests At Balboa Theater 2012 Jan 11 -- This topic created to track arrests and progress fighting felony arrests at BalboaTheater
  • UPDATED Two items relevant to OSD mission were placed on the agenda of the City of San Diego Rules Committee. This committee is yet another example of a "do-nothing" committee because they hardly even treated the proposals as serious.

  • NEW TELL POLICE HOW THEY ARE DOING: Police host monthly meetings in the community to get feedback from community members.

  • Legal is asking: If you were at the South gate on the day of The Port Shut Down 12/12 and witnessed any of the arrests and are willing to testify...please contact HiAndrea on FB or haz_el_eyes@yahoo.com -- Tammy.

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. I hereby demand to immediately be allowed the reasonable opportunity to obtain the advice of my attorney by telephone. from: http://layon.net/busted.php
  • To check if someone is in jail check this website: http://apps.sdsheriff.net/wij/wij.aspx
    • 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.
