Reality Check

This is currently under discussion at the Library Board where I live. One commenter on an IndyMedia post has mentioned that San Diego and another city take a principled proactive approach and give the person with the offending odor a coupon for a shower at a local facility. Also note that foul odor can be a medical condition, and in light of many city facilities requesting a fragrance-free environment from their patrons, it may make it impossible for someone with an affliction such as "Stinkfoot" (Bromhidrosis http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Body_odor#Medica... ) to use public facilities.

The last word on stinkfoot from someone who wore his Python Boots too tight. But seriously. I had a friend who was refused enlistment in the US Navy during the Vietnam war due to this condition.

The Nazis targeted the homeless ("work-shy") as degenerates and undesirables. The camps were not the beginning point of the Nazi's campaign against their victims. They began with harassment, violence and civil rights violations. They ramped it up a bit before they reached the concentration camp stage.

A certain bigoted group of Santa Cruz residents, especially in public forums like the Sentinel comments sections, call for cleansing the homeless from our community. They say, "kick the bums out". This kind of cleansing is not qualitatively different from the ethnic cleansing pursued in the former Yugoslavia and by the Nazis and their satellite nations in WW 2. Ethnic cleansing is the last step before genocide.

What happens when those who wish to purge Santa Cruz of the homeless are met with resistance from a homeless population that just won't budge? I imagine increased harassment, violence and finally a mob. When organized by a neoliberal state with fascist leanings like our local government this is cleansing akin to ethnic cleansing just short of genocide. Thus I suggest that people be careful when slinging hate speech around, because it may lead to serious consequences.

First rule of indybay censor is don't talk about indybay censor. Dissent is not to be allowed in such comments. Walk the party walk and talk to the party talk or get the boot.
(because heaven forbid anybody show that Leigh, Robert, Gary, and John make statements that simply can not be supported by any truth or foundation when asked to do so)

For an organization that tries to stretch the 1st Amendment to its limit, IndyCrap sure is willing to trample the free speech of others. No wonder they can't get enough donations in a month to send out for pizza! Run by baboons for buffoons....

Since the 9/11 attacks Americans have experienced a quickening, relentless erosion of our privacy rights. During this period an extensive, redundant and lawless national security state has been increasingly spying on its own citizens and on noncriminal organizations. Our internet surfing, our emails, our tweets, our telephone calls, and our geospatial information among other items are all subject to surveillance and scrutiny by the national security state. Moreover, as evidenced by the New York Police Department's surveillance of muslims and Occupy Wall Street activists without any suspicion of criminal conduct, local police departments participate in this kind of surveillance too. Local police departments essentially duplicating the excesses of the national security apparatus coincides with partnerships between the Department of Homeland Security and local law enforcement agencies in fusion centers around the country.

I would like to explain why I submitted the public records request above in addition to others preceding it, and why I intend to continue pursuing the information I seek.

To my understanding, the issue of police surveillance came to the attention of the Santa Cruz community when the Santa Cruz Police Department (SCPD) spied on organizers of the 2005 Do It Yourself (DIY) New Year's Eve Parade. According to articles published on Santa Cruz Indymedia soon after the parade, the SCPD infiltrated the the DIY Parade group and performed undercover surveillance of two meetings of the DIY Parade organizers. A campaign called "Just Us" was organized in response to the infiltration and spying. The ACLU filed a public records request at the behest of Santa Cruz activist Wes Modes revealing the surveillance, to quote commentator–journalist Robert Norse, that "it explained in detail how city officials were subverting proposed meaningful restraints on First Amendment violations."

The timeline is not all clear to me, but there were: several heated city council meetings where the SCPD intelligence operations against the DIY Parade was discussed; a dubious SCPD investigation clearing the perpetrators yet performed by the perpetrators themselves — then SCPD Deputy Chief Kevin Vogel and then Investigations Section Commander Rudy Escalante; and finally Santa Cruz's toothless independent police auditor Robert Aaronson's conclusion that the investigation performed by Vogel and Escalante was "incomplete and flawed".

It is unknown to me whether the City Council and then City Manager Richard Wilson took any meaningful actions to prevent a repeat of this illegal intrusion on the First Amendment Rights of citizens participating in a noncriminal organization. It is unknown whether the SCPD has conducted similar intelligence operations since then, for example on the Occupy Santa Cruz movement, or whether the SCPD's use of secret informants is fiscally sound, prudent and does not increase crime in our community.

Given the national climate of fear caused by increasing surveillance of civilians who are not criminals by the federal government, and then by local police departments in accord with the federal government, I believe the time is ripe to gather information for a local public discussion about: the use of secret informants in our community; how much money Santa Cruz spends on these informants; determining whether these informants contribute to more crime in our community; and what kinds of intelligence operations the SCPD is performing to determine whether they have returned to their "wicked ways" by spying on innocent civilians not involved in any criminal activity (potentially to stifle their First Amendment rights).

I welcome public support and a robust public debate to force the City Council to release information about the SCPD's use of secret informants and intelligence operations which would not lead to revealing the identity of any secret informants or intelligence operatives — the public has the right to access this information so that we can scrutinize these programs.

I urge readers to flood the City Council with emails demanding that my public records request be fulfilled. Furthermore, please urge the City Council to take part in a public debate about the issues raised by the dissemination of the released information.

I think NOT! I urge readers to flood the Pillsbury Doughboy (John Colby) with emails demanding that he stop making a nuisance of himself, get a job, and cease being a welfare parasite.

My, my, the Indybay Censor took the whole day off. Sounds like it was a national holiday in Looneyville, owing to the fireworks in Department 6 this morning. Anyway, here's all that's left of a rather choice thread. They came back to work just now:

"I've been a very, very naughty troll. Won't you bring your chains and switches and whip me into obedience, Mr. Indybay Censor? Please?

Ooh. Aah. Give it to me! Yeah, baby! Right there! Such a big strong censor man! Oh yes! More! More!"

You are banished to non-existence by the Indybay anointed protectorate.

Non-flinching, fervent display of fawning reverence to entrusted Moderator/Imperator BS aka BSA's "correctness" is required. BRAINWASHING demands a SINGLE VOICE repeated by eager participants in unison.
