Courts security must be sworn officers with legal training concerning the scope of their duties. Private security guards have no place in the court house screening process.
The law is far from being immoral. Having borders to delineate sovereignty is necessary.
Those ILLEGAL immigrants are here ILLEGALLY. Should we tolerate lying, cheating, and stealing? That's immoral in my book.
A lot of folks complain that undocumented workers have broken the law. Have you ever considered that slaves in the pre-Civil War South broke the law when they set foot off the plantation? Or that the Surpreme Court ruled that no black person was a citizen, North or South, and could never BE one? The law was immoral then, and it is immoral now. If we benefit from the sweat of another human being's brow, then we must repay him or her. People who pick our crops and hoe our fields and tend our children are being hunted down on our streets and cities and farms. This must stop. Undocumented workers cannot change the laws but We the PEOPLE can, and it is our responsibility as decent people to do so.
Jim Mzt, in this case the public is allowed. Reporters are specifically targeted for removal, even though they "obey the policies or laws that the public must obey." So what justifies removing the reporters?
These protestors should follow the immigration law. If they are not legal residents they have to leave that is the law. The Sheriff Department is doing it's job correctly. UI applaud them for that.
We need to make some changes to the so called rights of the press. They should have to obey the policies or laws that the public must obey. They don't get a free pass to anything only to what that are allowed.
I have seen 4 dead ones in Lake Merritt this past week. I am wondering what is up. It was weird seeing one dead, thought it might of been washed in. but Four? Anyone have any Ideas why this has happened ?
I have knee problems that prevent me from working sometimes and i also take pills for depression (i hate the pills, rather smoke cannibis) but I live in indiana how can i get a medical card? Please someone point me to the knowlegeable place or person. I stopped smoming recently just because the police have been cracking down here bad SOMEONE HELP!!
Fascists to the right of me, Fascists to the right of me, stuck in the middle doorway to the courthouse with Darwin BondGraham.
Good, those places were overpriced and pretentious and the coffee was sludge.
Ummm...he is dead.
I imagine the dude would be in jail or dead if he was black!
If police were reluctant to take action without overwhelming proof of crime, you can thank Judge Thelton Henderson for the proceduralism he imposed on the department.
I've never seen a reporter in immigration court. Good job.
As noted by previous poster, this headline is misleading at best. You weren't kicked out; you chose to leave.
This is a good article and you are shedding light on an important topic, but please refrain from such hyperbole.
OPD at their finest.
Great news! How about the fish soup? Delicious.
Now I can gripe a bit by the headline and the first line of this report -- because the reporter wasn't kicked out -- the reporter's first paragraph is contradicted by "I then requested the judge to ask the man again if he'd be OK with me staying on those terms. The man seemed OK with this, but I got up and left the courtroom, anyway." (GRRRR). So this headline and article kinda stinks. Reporters - the truth is not such that the ends justifies the means. Don't trick me, especially with an outright lie.
HOWEVER, this whole "media is the enemy" thing really pisses me off! Trump tweeted about it on the same day that this article was posted -- so one didn't cause the other. But the press are our eyes and ears -- NOT OUR ENEMY. If the public can be there, the press can be there and if someone is made nervous by the press -- that's a sign.
Have you ever sat through a public court proceeding? No? Thank God, because it's dead dull boring. It's like watching paint dry. "Due process" is important but not exciting, and so it's easy for the public to bypass observing such public proceedings because we're comfortable with the assurance that someone else is likely watching and if anything urgent or outrageous happens, we'll be alerted by someone who has more time than we do.
Even though they're open to the public, most court proceedings are not even attended by reporters -- but the fact that they can attend is a check and balance to nefariousness such as shortcuts through our rights, deals that ought not be made, and other bad behavior.
Thank you, reporter, for doing OUR job. We need you. We're on your side. We really appreciate it. This weekend, I counted 5 different ways that I pay money for news. It's valuable to me and I don't get mine for free. But please don't funge up the facts. It doesn't help.

If people support this type of investigative work, they should donate heavily to the publications that produce them. The East Bay Express produces great work, but has only ONE full-time reporter! The powers that be have a great interest in keeping their practices hidden and reporters have traditionally been the ones to put a spotlight on it. Unfortunately, investigations such as these are becoming very rare in a media climate driven by clicks, not substance. Support journalism!!
