Recall Gil Garcetti

Notes on California Gil Garcetti's comments on ABC news.

ABC News brought in Gil Garcetti to give his opinion of the police beatings of protesters on Figuoera at 5pm today.

His "expert" opinion was that the police were simply "showing who was in charge" as if that was an acceptable form of communication.

As the camera shows a man in green legal team cap being battoned in the chest as he falls backwards over the barrier, Garcetti says "you can see that no one is getting hurt."

While the police are shown jabbing non violent people with battons, and corralling them into a police-defined area, Garcetti says "Its wonderful to see these young people excersising their first ammendment rights."

Mayor Howdy is speaking at the moment, and i don't expect much more of him.

If the man who holds the highest prosecutorial office in the state is so blind that he can't even tell when people are being injured or not, he has no business in that position.

I forgot to add that Gil Garcetti is the California State District Attorny.

decriminalize free speech!

by rabbit Thursday, Aug. 17, 2000 at 10:54 PM

The really scary thing is that if Bush is elected (and probably Gore too!) then the next supreme court judges will be as bad or worse as Garcetti. It seems that they're trying really hard to criminalize freedom of speech! Are we gonna let 'em?...Hell no! Vote Nader!

update from mainstream media

by Colin Lieberman Thursday, Aug. 17, 2000 at 11:22 PM

still on ABC News

Calif. Atty. General Dan Lockyear (i think ive got the name right), commenting on the so called "1st Ammendment Zone" in the staple's center parkinglot:

"The fact is, no one really cares what they're protesting about, so what does it matter where they are allowed to protest?"

re Lockyear remark

by cleo baby Friday, Aug. 18, 2000 at 3:46 AM

isn't Lockyear an elected official?

can we all remember that the next time he runs for office?

this comment of his just illustrates the extent to which they think pretending we're not here makes us go away, for real.

hearing that archaic, bygone chant again:

Hell no! We Won't Go!
