Roche was fired, but on July 30, an arbitrator overturned the termination and reinstated him with full back pay. (Scott Olsen speaks out against the reinstatement of Robert Roche in video below.)

I received a report yesterday from disability advocate John Colby. Colby observed SCPD Officer Scott Freeman and two First Alarm Security guards at the Metro Transit Center taking an intoxicated man to a squad car.

Hoopa Valley Tribe: Interior Secretary turns back on Klamath salmon - by Dan Bacher
“It is as if the Secretary of Transportation said let’s forget about automobile seat belts, airbags and antilock brakes and spend the savings on ambulances,” said Hoopa Valley Tribe Chair Danielle Vigil Masten. “The problem is that the ambulance may or may not get to a crash scene in time, and when it does arrive, the crew will have to deal with far more serious injuries.” Photo of the Trinity River courtesy of the Hoopa Valley Tribe.

Community responds to vandalism with vigils at Alex Nieto Memorial! - by Justice for Alex Nieto Committee
"The vandalism to the Alex Nieto Memorial is a call to consciousness. No homey crossed out Alex’s face, for a homey would know the rules. Certain things are taboo. This vandalism is from someone who wants to erase Alex’s face so that it is not recognized, so that no neighbor can be a witness to his killing, so that no one can be reminded and reminded that on beautiful Bernal Hill, an innocent brown man was stitched by over a dozen bullets fired by the San Francisco Police Department." -- ...

Greenwashing Destruction: Fake marine “protection” and Brown’s tunnels - by Dan Bacher
We can see that MLPA and BDCP processes have much in common in terms of their leadership, funding, greenwashing goals, racism and denial of tribal rights, junk science and numerous conflicts of interest. I believe that people can more effectively oppose the Governor's twin tunnel plan by understanding the dark links between the MLPA Initiative and BDCP.
