I haven’t seen the forms, but County employees are being asked to sign a form which says that they have read Measure K and understand it.  I’ve never seen anything like that before.  Do they do this with every law that passes?  Did they do this with SB54 which is much more extensive?   All they really needed was an instruction to not contact ICE without talking to a supervisor.

Apparently some on the Human Rights Commission are complaining about having to sign it, and about having to actually do something – although I completely agree that the County should actually give them resources.  To do something.

For the record, Measure K does not require that employees sign any forms.

Addendum:  Here’s the actual form.  Seems simple enough actually.  What is all the whining about?

I don’t know how I will vote in the primaries, but I do think people should take a closer look at Sen. Sherrod Brown. He’s not as left in all his positions as Bernie or Warren, but he is a bona fide progressive who has twice fought off more dark money than any candidate other than President Obama. And his policies appeal to working class voters. Conservative commentator George Will sees him as the strongest candidate to defeat Trump – No Republican President was ever elected without winning Ohio.
The problem is that he currently lacks name recognition and will be going up against some pretty well-known very dynamic people. How does he break through? Well, if he’s an effective leader he’ll find a way.
“Last month Brown, 66, became just the fifth Ohio senator since the popular election of senators began in 1914 to achieve a third term, winning by 6 percentage points in a state Donald Trump carried by 8 points, a state no Republican has lost while winning the presidency. Brown did 20 points better than Hillary Clinton’s 2016 results in Appalachian Ohio and the industrial Mahoning Valley, and 15 points better in Lucas County, an autoworkers’ stronghold. If Democrats are looking for a lefty who can win in 2020, they should look at Brown as seriously as he is looking at running.
The fact that he is a political lifer — elected Ohio’s secretary of state in 1982 at 29, he then served seven terms in Congress — seems less like a defect than a credential now that the nation is two years into its experiment with treating the presidency as an entry-level public office. In the most important vote during Brown’s 25 years on Capitol Hill, he voted against the resolution authorizing the invasion of Iraq.”

I’m in Episode 5 and I’m kind of losing interest.  I want more Doug Fir interview.

But anyway, former Sheriff Downey was interviewed and says, speaking of the vigilante action, that hearsay is not the basis for probable cause.

I just want to makes sure everyone knows that the statement is completely false.  Hearsay can be the basis for probable cause.  It’s inadmissible at trial (barring an exception and there are numerous exceptions), but it can be the basis for probable cause.  Especially if there is additional evidence, such as, oh I don’t know – the suspect led people to a grave?

I don’t know what the Sheriff’s game was, but I can understand why people concluded extreme incompetence, extreme indifference, or both.  I say this as someone who does not see the eight vigilantes as heroes.

I’ll have more to say when I’m done watching, but I found the first couple of episodes more interesting.  Right now it’s watching like a typical television crime docudrama.


Woman’s march canceled by white organizers because too many marchers have been white.

This is why the left loses “so Goddam f—ing always.”

Addendum:  We’ve made national news.  Apparently someone at Fox thinks Eureka is in Los Angeles.

At the Clarke Plaza thanks to NextGen Eureka!

Definitely the County’s very onerous requirements for cannabis cultivation selects for the monster grows while killing off the small farmers is taking its toll, as well as the perennial glut of pot on the markets.  But hopefully the businesses and community will survive the “transition” into whatever comes next.  The draconian enforcement which is imposing “fines” in the amounts of tens of thousands many small growers don’t have is also hurting.

I almost yearn for the days when the Board of Supervisors were obsessed with property rights.  Almost.

Anyway, Kym writes excellently about the collateral damage in the present incarnation of the pot wars.

Addendum:  Apologies – I should have checked the by-line.  The author is  .

Maybe it’s wishful thinking, but will Chief Justice Roberts become the next Justice Blackmun?  There is a tendency for SCOTUS justices to move to the left over the years.  They aren’t reliant upon political support as they’ve reached the top and can remain there for life if they want – and they are daily exposed to intelligent thought and high levels of discourse.  Blackmun, Brennan, Souter, O’Connor, and even to a limited degree Scalia who did move away from the perennial cop position on search and seizure are all examples.
