Add comment on:Notes on A Sinister Sidewalk Singing Trial
Becky Johnson and Robert Norse
On the theory that a day sleeper in a residence above Pacific Avenue complaining about singers, performers, or political demonstrators can make them leave the public space in that block at 2:30 PM on a weekday, Judge Almquist found Becky Johnson guilty of unlawful singing downtown on January 6th. Johnson was involved in petitioning, flyering, and interviewing passersby on the rising homeless death rate. Her take on the trial and some of my notes follow.
