Mon May 17 2010 (Updated 05/18/10) The Jesus Factor Impeded by Santa Cruz Police Department
Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-in Screening Shut Down By Police After 8 years, 13 locations and over 150 free films to the community, Guerilla Drive-In is being targeted by the Santa Cruz Police. On May 14th, local film The Jesus Factor by Cheri Lovedog, showing under the Soquel Ave bridge, was shutdown by Santa Cruz police officers before it even started. This is the second time in two weeks that the authorities have shut down the screenings.

In the comments section of the Guerilla Drive-In article, people are reporting that on May 11th, a MDC (Millions of Dead Cops) concert at Coaster's Boardwalk Bowl in Santa Cruz was shut down in the middle of the performance. MDC apparently upset a security guard with their lyrics and was stopped from playing under threat of arrest in a large display of police force by SCPD, Sheriffs, Scotts Valley police and other jurisdictions.
