Newly released video by Humboldt DA: Arcata cops violently arresting protesters 2007
Two years after the Peoples Project homeless rights protest in Arcata, April 2007, Humboldt DA Paul Gallegos' office has pressed charges against one protester, resulting in the release of video evidence held by the DA against the protesters. (The protester has been sentenced to pay a fine).
Four segments of the video have been released on U-Tube under the title "Arcata Cops Gone Wild" parts 1,2,3 and 4. This is up close video of Arcata police and Humboldt County Sheriffs violently arresting a group of students and activists protesting Arcatas' notorious anti-homeless laws. One protester is seen going into seizure after a heavy policeman kneeled on his neck.
