Re: “Cop Identified in Kayvan Sabeghi Beating?

The story of police misconduct does not end with the attack. Sabehgi was taken to Glen Dyer jail, where his requests for medical attention were met with taunts and verbal abuse from Alameda County Sherif's Deputies. He lay on the floor of his cell bleeding internally until he was bonded out of jail. He went directly to the local hospital ER where the staff got him promptly into the operating room for a life saving surgery.
What faith should we have in OPD's internal investigation of this crime? none!
Why has DA Nancy O'malley not convened a grand jury to investigate this and other feloneous assaults by OPD officers? Beacouse she is their lap dog, thats why!

Re: “Real Change is Complicated and Messy

Thank you Jay!

When we plan actions it is important to think about what will draw in more people, but we would be shooting outselves in the foot if we limited ourselves to actions whose tone won't scare away liberals.

Liberals stay home because staying home is the center of their ideology. I often hear liberals say "I support the goals of the movement but......." No! you are not supporting the movement. Support is something you do, not say.

Unless people get off their couch, get with their friends and neighbors and do something, they are just letting the moment pass, passively ceding power to the banks and the 1% and the cops.

Someday I'll be proudly telling my grandkids about my small part in the movement that changed the United States, while my liberal friends will mumble to themselves about how the sat it out because of a burned flag and a damaged vending machine at city hall.

Re: “OPD Used Violent Cops Against Occupy

I want to know who is the officer who shot Scott Olson in the face with a tear gas cannister, and the officers who attacked those who came to his aid with rubber bullets and a flash bang grenade. I want to know the name of the officers who assaulted Kayvan Savhegi and ruptured his spleen. I want the name of the officer who hit Rasta with a car, then fled.
