Chris Doyon ("Commander X") Gets A Warning-less Lodging Ticket
by Robert Norse
Earlier this afternoon near Cafe Huff, a table set up with free coffee and literature at Occupy Santa Cruz, Chris Doyon got a misdemeanor citation for sleeping on the grass next to the table, where he had apparently dropped in exhaustion after four days (he reports) without sleep. In an escalating crackdown on the peaceful protest, two deputies gave Doyon the citation without a formal warning or any indication of a specific complaint. This is 5th or 6th 647e ticket given in the last 24 hours by deputies. Such charges are punishable by up to 6 months in jail and $1000 fine. Legal support is badly needed.
