At the police brutality event on Tuesday, the 22 of Oct, there were bunches of CHP, Sacramento City police, on bikes, on foot and on horses. I was legal observing standing so that I could see the crowd. Behind me, the CHP, came up to two activists from Stockton, asked what their names were and arrested one. He had been filming the police earlier. Someone found me and I asked what happened. The guy, who was not arrested, said that after they asked his name, they said that he was clean but had a "history". I went over the the CHP and I know one of them from past demos. They denied that they were asking names, first lie, they asked two folks at least their names. I told them that I didn't want them going around asking names as folks didn't have to tell them. They said that the guy they arrested, had a warrant, so didn't need his name as they knew him. I said, "Oh, local?" and they said yes. Second lie, both of these men were from Stockton. I tried to look up this guy on our inmate finder system and could not. I don't know if his name is spelled wrong and I don't have his birthdate. I don't think that cops lying to suspects are the same as cops lying to the public or to us. Also, there were two snipers on the roof during the demo. I went home to Oak Park in the early afternoon and there was open prostitution and meth selling near my house. Our tax dollars at work. Many cops and cop cars at the Mc Donald's demo. 15 folks selling drugs on my street that same day.
"National Day Against Police Brutality - Sacramento, CA - Rooftop Snipers in Place"
2013-10-23 posted by Zird Omstead [www.youtube.com/watch?v=boO7HFsWEaA]:October 22 marks the National Day Against Police Brutality. Protest
rallies and marches took place in dozens of cities and featured hundreds
of families who've lost a loved one to the Industrial Police Complex.
Sacramento, California a large and peaceful group gathered for a
permitted rally at the Capitol. As usual, police were omnipresent and
overbearing. This video shows the presence of a rooftop sniper and
spotter ready to put their training (on how to kill from a distance) to
Message from the videographer Karen Perry: The two man team of a sniper and a spotter came out onto the roof just before the video captured them and I witnessed the whole thing. They brought with them a large black duffel bag at least 6' long. They setup with the spotter scanning the crowd with his binoculars and the sniper setup prone along the ground next to where they setup the bag. They're up on the roof ready to move into active shooting if/when ordered to. Whether he's got the rifle out of his bag or not, the fact of the matter is that they're deploying these kinds of weapon systems with impunity whenever they feel threatened, bored, or simply want to run drills. Kind of like the drills they were running all day on 9-11. These drills have a way of going live. Police brings guns, police use guns. I'm not into hyperbole, and in this case I don't need to be. The rifles in the bag, man, just like always!

This event marks the #O22 National Day Against Police Brutality and
featured a march, speakers, music, and tables presenting stories of
those killed by police as well as other social justice organizations

peaceful gathering to testify about loss at the hands of a criminal
The two man team came out together, carrying their
large bag of weapons and whatnot. One hunkered down in between the
pillar fence in prone snipe position, the other doing the spotting with
the binoculars. After a time, the boys packed up and headed off to the
other side of the roof to do more sight seeing. Solidarity.
