OC Weekly commentary on Theresa Dang's trial (tags)
The cops say they have videotape of Dang taking the flashlight, but some question why DA Tony Rackauckas would go to court over a $100 flashlight, especially since the trial and its buildup cost taxpayers somewhere in the neighborhood of $50,000. Defenders of Rackauckas’ decision say that the moment we appease flashlight takers is the moment the terrorists, torch-carrying terrorists, win.

It looks like the articles I've been writing about Theresa Dang's case that I've been posting all over the internet have struck a very raw nerve with deep inside the Garden Grove Police Department, Orange County District Attorney's Office, and the folks who run Garden Grove City Hall. Someone in power apparently is very disturbed about what I have done.
The Persecution of Theresa Dang: Part II (tags)
Petersen was quite right when during opening arguments he told jurors he wasn’t prosecuting “the crime of the century”; what he neglected to inform them, however, was that in reality, he was prosecuting a farce.

The case of the missing police flashlight remains unresolved, but local activist Theresa Dang can go back to her San Francisco law school now and finish studying for her first final exam after a jury of her “peers” voted her not guilty on two separate counts of petty theft of a Garden Grove police officer's flashlight during a May 25th demonstration at the Garden Grove Women's Club.

"I want to credit the jurors for taking the time to figure out what really happened with this case," Dang said after the verdict was announced. "They couldn't possibly think the case would go to trial over just a $100 flashlight. There had to be other issues."
Theresa Dang acquitted of all criminal charges (tags)
“The jury realized this case had nothing to do with a lost flashlight,” said Duane J. Roberts, one of the organizers of the May 25th counterdemonstration. “They saw that this was a politically-motivated charge brought forth by the Garden Grove Police Department against Dang for exercising her constitutional rights of free speech and assembly."

Deputy DA hits Theresa Dang with new criminal charge (tags)
I strongly urge that as many people as possible come to Westminster to support Theresa Dang in her fight against both the Garden Grove Police Department and the Orange County District Attorney's Office. You don't have to attend these trials every day, or be there every hour. But commit yourself to three hours (or even one) and watch what has to be one of the biggest farces in the history of the criminal justice system here in Orange County.

Theresa Dang's trial delayed until Nov. 29th (tags)
But let’s give Petersen the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he was enjoying his Thanksgiving holiday so much that he just wanted to spend a bit more time away from another grueling day at work. After all, the case the Garden Grove Police have put together against Dang is a real turkey; if any of us were in his shoes, we'd probably play hooky, too.
Support Theresa Dang by attending her trial on a bogus flashlight theft charge (tags)

Garden Grove Police launching smear campaign against May 25th protesters hit by Netkin? (tags)
The real question that people need to ask now is this: Is it the policy of the Garden Grove Police to smear people who have been struck by automobiles? Do they smear people who have been involved in other kinds of accidents, as well? Does Lt. Handfield have qualifications to diagnose people's injuries based on what he sees on videotape? I thought his job was to fight crime?
"M" FOR MISDEMEANOR: HOW GARDEN GROVE POLICE MADE UP A CRIME OUT OF (tags)
People have asked me if this is true: Did a Garden Grove policeman write up a ticket to an Indymedia journalist who dropped a cigarette butt? After all, this is the same police department we've all been reading about that raided the Westminister home of Theresa Dang in search of a lost flashlight, isn't it? Would it be such a big surprise to anybody now that they actually stooped this low to harass other people whose only real crime was to exercise their constitutional right to free speech and assembly?
Theresa Dang's arraignment hearing continued until Wednesday, July 27th (tags)
What will happen next? Only history can tell. But if the rumors I've been hearing about Dang's case prove to be true, public exposure of them will be of considerable embarassment to the entire system of "criminal justice" here in Orange County. Is it no wonder why so many men in powerful positions are incredibly nervous about what the Garden Grove Police have done?

The cops are on high alert because word on the street is that Dang took an officer’s flashlight—DUH DUH DUUUUUUH!!!—which has Homeland Security officials considering raising the terror level to eggshell.

Garden Grove police chief Joe Polisar wonders: where could his flashlight be? His cops couldn't find it when they searched Theresa Dang's home last week. Is it at yours?

The search for the flashlight angered Dang's attorney, who called it political retaliation for Dang's open criticism of police tactics during the demonstration. "It's seems bizarre," said attorney B. Kwaku Duren.
