LA Code 41.18 (d); Policing Our Way Out of Homelessness (tags)
The L.A. Municipal Code 41.18 (d) remains an easy way for police to criminalize homeless individuals and make their lives more difficult than they already are, resulting in the U.S. 9th Circuit Court to rule in their "Jones vs. City of L.A." case that this code violates the U.S. Constitution's 8th Amendment (No cruel and unusual punishment). Certain officers issue citations to people arbitrarily without providing ANY time for individuals to comply.

9th Circuit Court Enables Ruby Pipeline Construction (tags)
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals denied the emergency request by Center for Biological Diversity to temporarily halt construction on the 670 mile Ruby Pipeline being constructed by El Paso corporation through four western states. Some of the Ruby Pipeline's future customers include BP, in a rush to regain their losses from the Gulf Oil Spill. This could be some of the reasons for skipping critical components of the public review process and purchasing verbal consent from two prominent environmental organizations, WWP and ONDA.

FREE MUMIA! (tags)
The Echo Park Community Coalition (EPCC) scores the US Supreme Court for its ruling, however, it was not a legal decision; it was a political decision reaffirming the commitment of every arm of the state to permanently silence a prominent Black leader who has dedicated his life to challenging racism and oppression. The Third Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Mumia’s conviction in 2008, but ruled that Mumia deserved a new sentencing hearing because the jury had been given flawed instructions. The Supreme Court’s Jan. 19 ruling reverses that decision, sending the case back to the Third Circuit. The lower court can either let the death sentence stand or order a new trial to hear other claims brought by Mumia.

BYE BYE BYBEE -STOP US TORTURE NOW! (tags)
Judge Jay Bybee, former head of the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel, authored legal memos approving torture. As a judge on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals he has a lifetime appointment. His unethical and illegal torture memos were not revealed in his Senate confirmation hearings. He admits that waterboarding "constitutes the imminent threat of death" and still allowed its use. Any act complicit in torture is a felony under US law. He must be removed from the bench now!
The Framing of Mumia Abu-Jamal: an interview with author J. Patrick O’Connor (tags)
In his new book, O’Connor argues that Abu-Jamal was clearly framed by police, and that the actual shooter was a man named Kenneth Freeman. O’Connor criticizes the local media, who, he says “bought into the prosecution’s story line early on and has never been able to see this case for what it is: a framing of an innocent and peace loving man.”
