Responding to Sheriff Wowak's Whitewash of Abuse By His Deputies
Robert Norse
Apparently Sheriff Wowak feels that the best defense is an smelly offense. A Friday Press Release below justifies the nightly raids against Occupy Santa Cruz, seizing signs, tents, and personal effects. The technique is somewhat similar to the Coonerty-Lane City Council's poo-poo/pee-pee Injunction. (currently pending before federal court to examine the real First Amendment issues instead of the spurious health pretexts raised by the City). Throw a lot of shit, needles, and "violence" noise at the media and hope that will mask the police violence and the real agenda of removing the protest through a bureaucratic crackdown. I responded by sending Wowak a Public Records Act Request. Both Wowak's press statement and my PRA request are repeated below.
