NOTE BY NORSE:  Unfortunately, the decision was made by a jury and doesn't stop future prosecution as a "legal" matter.  However the voice of the people (as it's been heard in Brazil, Turkey, and Egypt recently)--in this case through the jury acquittal via "jury nullification"--is louder than any judge, mayor, cop, or soldier.   It's probably too much to hope that gentrified Santa Cruz juries will exercise the kind of independence, clear vision, and refusal to follow judicial authoritarianism that "conservative" San Diego jurors did.   Still, we can spread the word!
In Santa Cruz we have the recent imposition of curfews (Cowell's Beach, the library, City Hall the County Building, the Levee, and now at Capitola Beach for the 4th of July) and piling on of cops and security guard patrols for "safety".

Santa Cruz has a nasty history (in spite of its phony liberal reputation) if attacks on Free Speech.  As of 7-11, it will become illegal to hold up a political sign on any median or roundabout (the goal being to criminalize peaceful panhandling--again under the phony pretext of "Public Safety").   Haughty bigots will have an additional weapon in the new "disorderly conduct" law making it illegal to make the gentry "uncomfortable" in the parks (which is a huge swath of territory extending far beyond formal parks run by the city's Parks and Recreation Dept.)--violaters (as of July 11th) face up to a year in jail and $1000 fine if they dare to dispute officials and don't leave areas for 24-hours as well as appear in court to face trial.

No cheeky chalker protesters were ticketed or cited for chalking during the Occupy movement (the cops simply used massive police force to terrorize both activists and homeless survival campers nearby).  However, the Santa Cruz City Attorney's office has intervened against past anti-war protests to prosecute "criminal chalkers" such as activist Becky Johnson

(see ‪ http://www.counterpunch.org/2003/02/22/hopsco... ‬). 
And D.A. Bob Lee is still postponing murder, rape and assault prosecutions to forward his Wells Fargo-friendly political agenda of trying four activists (the last of the Santa Cruz Eleven) for peaceful occupation of a 5-year vacant bank building at 75 River St.

(See http://66.147.242.176/~santacv 5/santacruzelevencom/ for background on the SC-11).
He panhandled the Board of Supervisors last month for more money, while ignoring the hundred thousand-plus his malicious prosecution of the SC-11 has cost the county.  The four defendants go to trial in September and face 4 years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines and restitution though no evidence has been presented that any of them committed any kind of vandalism whatsoever, simply being present in the vacant building as hundreds were throughout the 3-day occupation.

It's telling that for the first time in Santa Cruz history (as far as I've heard), a local judge fined the D.A.'s office for improper behavior involving D.A. Rebekah Young---Lee's underling in charge of prosecuting the cases--for repeatedly withholding discovery and presenting falsehoods to the court and to the defendants. (This cost the defendants and their lawyers tens of thousands of dollars as well as big court costs, but Judge Burdick, closing ranks with fellow attorneys, only fined Lee $500.  Lee has refused to pay and is appealing the case.)  See "Attorneys for 4 of the Santa Cruz 11 go to Status & Sanctions Hearing Monday" at https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2013/04/05/... )

Joe Schultz of India Joze will be catering a benefit for the SC-11 and Sanctuary Camp at 535 Spring St. 2-5 PM on Friday, July 5th.  Remember to carry chalk at all times!

DA Bob Lee is a criminal, who aids and abets criminals. Hopefully he'll see the inside of a jail, but not as a visitor. Same goes for Vogel, Wowak and Scott MacDonald.

This hateful load of BS was written by John Colby, soon to be evicted, section 8 dwelling, two decades running, unemployed welfare parasite. John is well known in the area for writing letters to different public agencies excoriating their behavior and making demands. The mayor of Santa Cruz chastised him for diverting monies for the homeless for his own personal agenda.
28 of his neighbors presented a petition to the management company of his apartment complex demanding his eviction claiming he was a child molester. SCPD doesn't answer his calls because he's a known crank and cries wolf to often.
You can verify a lot of this if you just Google John Colby Santa Cruz or take a look at his LinkedIn page and you'll see just exactly how nutty he is.

John, in a current Topix thread was voted less in touch with reality than a box of rocks by a 6-1 margin.

With hateful, slanderous posts like this you can see why John is getting booted out his section 8 sty on September 17th and no one is willing to help him.

I'm sorry if you're jealous that Jeff and I have an online rap. Obviously Jeff doesn't hold you in the same high regard he holds me. Why do you have to be jealous of everything?

That is so *gay*.

Are you still planning on using Dist. Atty. Bob Lee as a referral when you apply for new section 8 lodging somewhere Montana?

Y0 Rob; broadcast is the past anyway. keep going strong on the the str3am and net casting. plus
if you stop doing your show purely live and go to a pre-production model you can do a lot for cheap nowadays with computers and tech. Keep going. good to have a local perspective that questions authority.
specially that we will have R0mney DUMBarr filling us full of hot air from CTV soon....

Rob, I don't listen to anything 'live' anymore. I download and listen on delay. I do this will all radio shows, net-casts, and tv shows. If FRSC goes down do not despair, it was dead weight anyway. Distribute B.R.B. directly through your own web sight. The No agenda show is a good model, they pre-record, release online and do not air on any terrestrial radio stations.

Also you need a libertarian co-host who cares about more than just the homeless. It always amazes me how many SHEEP just mindlessly cheer as their their freedoms are being eroded. Yay! Keep dem homeless out of the parks, medians, cowell beach, etc etc.... Hello, idiots! You housed residents just lost your rights to use PUBLIC SPACE on the decree of fascist rulers like Comstock and park manager Shoemaker...
