Ian Babcock prominent member of Take Back Santa Cruz
Take Back Santa Cruz will occasionally mobilize a court watch when there is a victim of a crime to support or when a transient arrested. They really like to go to court when it involves an unhoused individual. This happened in 2013 with Kenneth Maffei who was neither homeless or guilty but I digress. On May 17 they are mobilizing another court watch for the 5 minute arraignment of Landon Horseman who was arrested for assault .

It's a Trap! (see PDF) provides basic information that everyone should know about the tactics of law enforcement, but that may be particularly important for political activists and those who are, or who are perceived to be, Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim or South Asian.

The recession will become a depression
The cycle of recession and rebound is what you would call a confidence game, perpetrated by the biggest con man and swindler of all. He has succeeded very well, and the economic world has a false foundation today, a paper one, which could go up in smoke if the right match were applied to it.
