Tuesday September 5th at 8:30am is the court date for on of the arrestees
from the bulldozer action at the South Central Farm, 16 year old Michael
Tzintzun. The police brutality that he was victim to on that day was
witnessed by many people, the charges he is facing are outrageous trumped
up charges which seeks to criminalize and railroad these working class
youth of color.
The trial will be held at 1601 Eastlake Ave (1 block behind the general
hospital). People would not be allowed inside the courtroom becaue he's a
juvenile but they can show up in support of him in the hallway.
We also want to post all of the 10 arrestees from the bulldozer action.
We didn't do this before because we didn't have all of the information
until now, and because we are supporting the 3 members of Cop Watch Los
Angeles who are facing the worst charges out of the 10 which are Yolanda
Carlin, Michael Tzintzun and Martha Escudero. They want to fight their
cases and take a principled stand they are being put on trial for
defending the farm. We are prioritizing them because of the nature of the
charges, why they are being put on trial, and because our experience with
the (in)justice system has showed us that if you're young working class
and of color this system will try to railroad you into the prison
industrial complex. At the same time, we want to have some real
solidarity with all the other arrestees,
if people want support they can always contact Cop Watch and the Youth
Justice Coalition, we don't get involved in people's cases unless they ask
us to help -- we'll support people with whatever resources we can provide

Cop Watch Los Angeles Website Update
We've added a Cop Watch Data Base to our website
The Cop Watch Data Base will be accessible to everyone. It will hold and
can store information, profiles, pictures, audio, and video on Police,
Sheriffs, SWAT's, Fed's, High Way Patrol, Rent-A-Cops, DEA, ATF, CIA, INS,
NSA, ICE, snitches, undercovers, informants, prosecutors, judges,
probation officers, and correctional officers.
This will help us in building this movement to bring down the entire
police state. When we say Cop Watch we mean Law Enforcement Watch.
Profiles and Reports can be added onto the Data Base by the editor after
the report is reviewed.
