Copy of Affidavit used to obtain warrant in Long Haul raid
Superior court
Attached is a redacted copy of the affidavit which a UC Police officer swore out to get a warrant from an Alameda County Superior Court judge to raid the venerable Long Haul Infoshop on Wednesday, August 27, 2008. UC Police officers, with at least one FBI agent and county sheriff's deputy, descended on the peaceful space with guns drawn -- based on the flimsy pretext that someone(s) unknown had sent hostile letters to UC professors from computer(s) there. They then made off with all of the public and organizational computers, and have them still.
