report from Monday:


I was able to attend the first day of the Grand Jury looking into the shooting of Rudy Cardenas on Feb. 17, 2004. It seems clear to me that based on the information so far provided that Mr. Cardenas post NO THREAT to the officer, Michael Walker and that the officer could have exercised other option other than shooting and killing Mr. Cardenas. If you have time, please drop by to view the proceedings located at the Old Court House Builidng, 161 North First Street, Court Room 21, Third Floor, San Jose, CA 95113. Beginning at 9am to 5 pm each day. There is usually an 1 1/2 hour break for lunch and also one morning break and one afternoon break.

Hope to see you there!
