Coverage by Liam Dillon of Voice of San Diego
A group who is extremely critical of police agencies received a message on Wednesday heavy with profanity, defending police and calling police protesters from Ferguson “animals.” In an era of internet anonymity, the message style is unfortunately common; less common is the digital fingerprint on the message that indicates the message originated from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. A department representative said it appears to have come from the department and officials are investigating, Liam Dillon reports.

The Coalition for an Independent Citizen’s Review Board on Police Practices established by Women Occupy in collaboration with other community groups such as Uaptsd.org is working to create a Community Review Board on Police Practices with real power.
Our proposal will be presented; Reforms essential to the effective Community Oversight of the SDPD include:
1. Independent Investigators with Subpoena Power
2. Intake, Tracking and Review of all cases by the CRB..
3. The name is changed to Community Review Board on Police Practices from Citizens Review Board.
4. Two CRB members are appointed by each City Council District Representative, and one by the Mayor, promoting broader community representation.
Join us and sign up to speak or cede time to our
presenter so that we can present the full proposal.

Filmmaker Stanley Nelson examines the rise of the Black Panther Party in the 1960s and its impact on civil rights and American culture.
“The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution” offers a sturdy recap of the titular organization’s short, tumultuous history.” – Variety
“The moment is right for a documentary history of the Panthers, with its images of armed black men patrolling the streets and walking onto the floor of the California Legislature.”- New York Times
Watch movie trailer: https://vimeo.com/114903198
THE BLACK PANTHERS: VANGUARD OF THE REVOLUTION is the first feature length documentary to explore the Black Panther Party, its significance to the broader American culture, its cultural and political awakening for black people, and the painful lessons wrought when a movement derails.
