UPDATE ON DAVE BRIDGEN
From Gary Johnson
Wednesday, Aug. 26, 8:39 p.m.
Dave was released this morning to go home. He still has
quite a ways to go in rehab, and could have benefited
from some additional physical therapy at the Rehab
Center. But with Medicare, rules are rules, and that
really stinks! Tomorrow morning (Thurs.), the therapy
staff and a nurse will come to the house and decide what
his home therapy schedule will be. I’m including a photo
that was taken upon his departure from the Rehab Center.
One of the byproducts of Parkinson’s is unstable blood
pressure, and Dave has bouts of that condition that
makes him somewhat unsteady on his feet. Yesterday,
Steve Windisch Jr. and a friend of his installed grab
bars in the shower of Dave's home that will come in
handy (no pun intended). And Bob Moir provided some
items in the form of a wheelchair and walkers that will
be very useful while Dave recovers at home. In addition,
some officers have donated money to help with the
unexpected expenses that are sure to come up while Dave
recovers at home.
Everyone has been awesome throughout this whole ordeal,
and Dave and Betty Ruth are very appreciative of
everything the SJPD Family has done. Keep those prayers
and letters coming!
As for personal visits, Betty Ruth is asking that we
hold off until things stabilize for Dave at home. He was
extremely tired today, and once he starts therapy again,
this may affect his stamina. I will keep you posted.
Wednesday, Aug. 26, 10:37 p.m.
This comes from a very close family friend who has been
present through all of this:
Because of Dave’s condition, Betty Ruth has difficulty
helping to get him up and around in the house. A friend
of the family who’s a nurse came in this evening, and a
decision was made to get a caregiver to help with Dave
and to be there overnight that will enable Betty Ruth to
get some rest as well. Caregivers charge about $27 per
hour, the cost of which is NOT covered, and long-term
care insurance won’t kick in until they reach the 90-day
mark, which is still a long way off. If anyone is able
to help out financially, that would be great. Checks can
be made out to "Betty Ruth Bridgen" and either mailed to
her or to me, and I will get them to her ASAP.

Approves Deal with Unions
—Settlement vote aims to end litigation, undo Measure B—
News — Aug. 26, 2015
SAN JOSE — After a three-year battle with employee
unions and shelling out millions to defend Measure B
pension reforms, the City Council voted 10-1 to approve
a settlement agreement Tuesday to end litigation and
begin a legal process to invalidate the measure.
The council also turned the page on contentious labor
talks with police, unanimously approving a one-year
agreement that gives officers 8 percent in ongoing
raises and 5 percent bonuses.
the agreement, new San Jose police
officers will receive less generous pensions.
“This is a day I will never forget,” said Vice Mayor
Rose Herrera. “We’re focused on moving forward and not
all the battles of the past.”
Councilman Pierluigi Oliverio voted against the Measure
B settlement, saying changes to the measure should go
back to voters instead of being gutted through a legal
San Jose leaders at the time said the 2012 measure
overwhelmingly approved by city voters was needed to
ease the growing bite of employee retirement costs on
But unions and other critics blamed it for chasing away
hundreds of police officers and other city employees.
Overturning Measure B will require the city to admit it
did not meet its bargaining obligations with unions
three years ago.
After meeting with organized labor for months, the city
in December 2011 made changes to the measure without
continuing negotiations, and union groups never saw the
final measure that went to voters. Using that mishap as
a backbone, the city will engage in a “quo warranto”
legal proceeding to ask a judge to invalidate Measure B.
“What we would be saying to the judge is we can see
there may have been procedural defects that would give
rise to the invalidation of the resolution that the
council put on the ballot,” said Mayor Sam Liccardo in
an interview last week.
As the city goes through the quo warranto process, which
both parties agreed is the quickest way to implement
changes to Measure B, city leaders plan to draft a
November 2016 ballot measure to prohibit retroactive
pension increases, require voter approval for benefit
increases and require actuarial soundness.
If a Superior Court judge agrees to nullify Measure B,
the city will replace it with the settlement agreement
reached in July with police and fire unions. But if the
quo warranto process fails, the city will put the
settlement terms before voters.
The city needs to reach similar Measure B settlements
with its nine other unions before going to the judge.
The settlement upholds parts of Measure B that were
deemed lawful by Superior Court Judge Patricia Lucas in
2013, such as eliminating retiree bonus checks and
bringing new hires into a new, scaled back retirement
The settlement deal also restores disability benefits
and closes a defined-benefit retiree health care plan
that yields savings for both the city and employees. But
it would abandon a Measure B provision that required
existing employees to pay more into their pensions.
One of the most significant provisions in the
settlement, first suggested by Herrera last year, allows
former police officers that return to San Jose to
receive the same retirement benefits they had when they
left, rather than the smaller plan offered new hires.

Strap yourself to something so you don’t fall down as
you read this item authored by District 9 Councilman Don
Rocha. It appeared in the Aug. 24th online edition of
the Merc, and on the Op/Ed page of the paper on the
25th, but under a different headline.)
Employees Were Right About Measure B
Donald Rocha — San Jose City Council District 9
to the Mercury News — Aug. 24, 2015
Former San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed and San Jose Mayor Sam
Liccardo are telling us a fairy tale about pension
reform. And that fairy tale is "Goldilocks and the Three
In a recent opinion piece, Reed and Liccardo argued that
the proposed Measure B settlement agreement "offers a
Goldilocks solution between the fiscally soft benefit
structure that existed prior to Measure B and the harder
alternative in (Measure B)." The settlement would
increase pension benefits above Measure B levels. Like
Goldilocks, Reed and Liccardo believe these new levels
will be "just right."
I generally agree with the mayor on this point. Measure
B has made it difficult for the city to recruit
employees, especially police officers. Benefit levels do
need to be revised.
That's only part of the story. The city council has been
working on pension reform since 2010, and it put Measure
B on the ballot in 2012. Why did it take the council
until 2015 to figure out that eating from the Measure B
porridge bowl was burning our mouth?
I think the problem was that those of us who voted for
Measure B may not have listened closely enough to city
employees. They have become something of a punching bag
over the past few years. Chuck Reed was especially adept
at landing blows, once telling San Jose police officers
that they were on the "gravy train."
Despite this abuse, our employees were right about the
consequences of Measure B. Ben Field, a labor
representative, stood before the council in March 2012
and warned that "San Jose appears destined to become the
training ground for workers who will leave for better
jobs in the better-governed cities that surround us."
That's exactly what ended up happening, but in my
opinion the council did not take this warning seriously
enough at the time. I believe some of us were too
impressed with our own intelligence and too used to
regarding employee unions as obstructionist to take what
they had to say seriously.
So what's changed? The mayor emphasizes the change on
the union side, noting in a recent press release that
union leadership has "dramatically altered the tone of
the conversation between public safety unions and City
Hall." From my vantage point, the changes on the city
side have been much more significant. Chuck Reed, a
staunch opponent of revising Measure B while in office,
has left the city, as have a few of his close allies.
Liccardo himself has softened his position since being
elected last November; he now supports rolling back
Measure B provisions he once pledged to implement. If
this course correction had happened back in 2012, the
unions may well have been willing partners, allowing us
to avoid turmoil and service impacts over the past three
Unlike Goldilocks, San Jose's elected leaders shouldn't
just run away into the forest after breaking chairs and
eating someone else's porridge. We should take
responsibility for our past decisions and try to learn
from them. The lesson I've learned is that when the
council begins work on a policy matter, we should focus
less on trying to prove the other side wrong and more on
approaching the work with an open mind. We should listen
carefully to other people's opinions, treat others with
respect even when we disagree with them, and have the
humility to understand that we are not always right.

THE TRIALS & TRIBULATIONS OF SAN JOSE AND THE SJPD
While Independent Police Auditor LaDoris Cordell may
have moved on to loftier heights (retirement), it
appears that Mercury News editorial board editor Barbara
Marshman has taken it upon herself to fill the IPA’s
role. This blather appeared in last Friday’s paper…
Needs More Work to Regain Trust
Editorial — Mercury News — Aug. 21, 2015
Two murder suspects killed by San Jose police in two
days: Just getting them off the streets should have been
cause for relief, given the viciousness of the slaying
of Christopher Maxwell Wrenn that a security camera
caught them committing in a Berryessa office building
the previous week.
The first suspect to be shot to death, Matthew Castillo,
was armed and holding his gun when police confronted him
Sunday. A witness confirmed it. The second suspect,
Richard Jacquez, also identified in the video, fled on
foot after a car chase Monday night and was also was
shot — in the back.
Thus begins a chain of events that seriously undermines
trust in the San Jose department. It’s going to take
hard work to rebuild that trust — and a thorough public
airing of what happened in this case.
The problem is not just that Jacquez was shot in the
back. There are situations in which that’s acceptable
under the law. Anyone who saw the video of the Berryessa
killing — screen shots appear at
www.mercurynews.com — would agree that this man
could be a danger to others if he escaped. Police say
they had information that he was armed and about to kill
The problem is that the first version of the shooting
given out by police was false. Media were told that
Jacquez reached for his waistband, leading officers to
believe he was about to pull a gun. Assistant Chief
Eddie Garcia acknowledged Wednesday that Jacquez did not
reach for his waistband and was not armed at the time.
That inevitably leads reasonable people to question
whether shooting Jacquez in the back was justified. It
further calls into question San Jose officers’
credibility in their reports of other incidents, fatal
Garcia said it was a mistake made in the rush to release
information about the second police killing in two days,
an extraordinary sequence of events. He apologizes.
Police did correct the information themselves when all
witnesses had been interviewed. On Thursday, they were
still trying to sort out where the bad information came
from. In an age of video surveillance everywhere,
whether from cellphones or security cameras, officers
have to know the peril of making stuff up.
Still, there will be lingering suspicion of an attempted
cover-up that the department realized it couldn’t
sustain. It doesn’t help that police have not sustained
a complaint of misconduct fueled against them for years.
It’s a bad time for the city to be without an
independent police auditor — but LaDoris Cordell, who
retired this summer, filed a complaint Wednesday with
her old office, whose staff is highly competent. Police
should fight the inclination to circle the wagons. This
is a time to welcome any opportunity to clear the air.
This clouds what could have been a stellar moment for
the department, quickly solving a vicious murder and
perhaps saving other lives. But community trust is
essential for officers to do their jobs. There is work
to be done.

Is it possible that in hindsight, Marshman felt the
editorial above was a little heavy handed, and that she
decided to throw the SJPD a bone by publishing this
letter to the editor that appears on the same page?

to the Editor
News — Aug. 21, 2015
I watched in horror on Monday night as police, wanted
suspects and news trucks descended upon our
neighborhood. It was an upsetting night after hearing
gunshots and being told there was a police-involved
shooting. I was ultimately relieved that no officer or
neighbor was harmed.
Then friends and sympathizers of the victim gathered at
the crime scene. I was stunned as I heard them honor the
slain man while vilifying law enforcement.
Where was the outrage that this person had put our
neighbors in jeopardy as he led a police chase into an
area full of innocent residents and children? Where was
the anger that he was an identified suspect in a murder
last week? The police had every right to not give him
the benefit of the doubt.

Tamerlin Drummond — Columnist
News — Aug. 22, 2015
Since the killing of Hayward police Sgt. Scott Lunger
during a July 22 traffic stop, there has been an
alarming rash of deadly encounters between police
officers and suspected criminals in the East and South
During a two-week span from Aug. 3 to Aug. 17, law
enforcement officers from Oakland, San Jose, Sunnyvale
and Contra Costa County have been involved in eight
violent confrontations. Seven civilians have died, and
one is in critical condition. An Oakland police sergeant
was wounded by gunfire from an AK-47 assault rifle.
I can’t remember a time when there have been this many
fatal shootings involving police within such a short
period of time. I find it of great concern.
Regardless of the venomous comments that some are wont
to spew in the online comments section of this
newspaper, we are talking about people who died violent
deaths. Regardless of what crimes they are alleged to
have committed, they left behind loved ones who are
grieving their loss. We should inquire — even though we
may not have ready answers — what could be causing this
surge in law enforcement-involved shootings, and is
there anything that can be done about it? Does it
suggest a trend? Are increasingly emboldened criminals
confronting officers, as San Jose police spokesman Sgt.
Enrique Garcia said this week after four separate
officer-involved shootings in that city in just nine
days? Or are overly aggressive police officers
escalating encounters, leading to needless deaths, as
some Black Lives Matter protesters claim? Each case has
different circumstances and must be investigated to
determine whether officers followed department
guidelines before resorting to lethal force. Yet what
bothers me is that some in law enforcement and within
Black Lives Matter seem more interested in spinning the
recent confrontations to suit their agendas rather than
the particular facts of each case. The actions of both
camps further inflame an already tense situation.
First, a quick recap of recent events.
Aug. 3: Antonio Clements, 49, was shot and killed by two
Oakland officers investigating a complaint by a woman
that she had been sexually assaulted at Clements’ home.
According to police, Clements emerged from the home
firing an AK-47. Sgt. Abdullah Dadgar, a 14-year police
veteran, was wounded in the hip.
That same day, Timothy Stout, 28, was shot and
critically wounded in the Oakland Airport Hilton hotel
parking lot by two inspectors from the Contra Costa
District Attorney’s Office who attempted to arrest him
on felony warrants. According to the agency, he
brandished a gun.
Aug. 9: Two San Jose police officers shot and killed
Edrian Rivera, 22, who police say was wielding a meat
Aug. 10: Two San Jose police officers responded to a 911
call from a woman who said her brother was intoxicated,
armed and suicidal. Aaron Phillips, 30, was on the porch
with a handgun. The officers shot at Phillips but did
not hit him. He went into the house, where he died of a
self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Aug. 12: Nate Wilks, 28, was shot and killed by Oakland
police after a 7-mile pursuit. According to police, he
was driving a car used in an armed robbery. He crashed
the car and attempted to carjack another.
Aug. 15: A Sunnyvale police officer fatally shot Allen
Matthew Baker III, 23, during a foot chase. According to
police, he pointed a gun at the officer.
Aug. 16: Two San Jose police officers fatally shot
Matthew Castillo, 29, one of three suspects in the Aug.
13 killing of Christopher Wrenn.
Aug. 17: San Jose police fatally shot Richard Jacquez, a
second suspect in Wrenn’s killing. He was shot in the
back as he ran toward his cousin’s house. He was not
armed at the time.
All shootings involving police officers are not created
equal. Yet we live in such a polarized society — even
more so in the wake of Ferguson, Missouri, and other
highly publicized police shootings — that people often
can’t see beyond their own ideology. I’m amazed at how
often officers tell me that bad police shootings aren’t
a serious problem and that the media blows a few cases
way out of proportion. Then, we have the knee-jerk
More than 100 people took to the street in Oakland to
protest Wilks’ killing. The man was armed, tried to
carjack people, and a police video released Wednesday
morning should put to rest any question of whether the
police acted appropriately.
We need more independent thinkers willing to consider
the facts, rather than leaping to ideologically based

It’s not a stretch to see a similarity between the
Clinton email scandal and the dust-up about Asst. Chief
Eddie Garcia’s emails that made the Internal Affairs
column in last Sunday’s paper…
Committee OKs Request for Garcia Emails
In an unusual move last week, a San Jose City Council
committee chaired by Mayor Sam Liccardo overruled a city
staff recommendation and approved an alternative weekly
newspaper’s Public Records Act request for a year’s
worth of emails from Assistant Police Chief Eddie
Metro Silicon Valley had appealed the city’s denial of
some 400 emails Garcia had sent on his city email
account on grounds they dealt with purely personal
matters. The city had released other emails that became
the basis for an article that portrayed as unbecoming
the casual email banter among top police officials and
Garcia — who becomes interim police chief next year and
is poised to be the city’s permanent top cop.
In the battle between privacy and transparency at the
committee, some officials questioned whether Metro would
publish details about Garcia’s children.
“There are private details in someone’s life that don’t
rise to the level of public interest,” Liccardo said.
But Metro’s news editor, Josh Koehn, said he wasn’t
interested in details about Garcia’s family, but rather
how Garcia spends his time on the clock and his level of
The committee decided to release the emails after
redacting personal information.
Garcia told us that 90 percent of those 400 messages
deal with personal matters like coaching football,
because he works “24/7” and doesn’t have much time off.
But he added he’s “not overly concerned” about their
release. “There is no bombshell,” said Garcia. “There
may be some that I need to explain, but there’s nothing
in those emails that would be embarrassing.”
Koehn called the decision a victory, but conceded it’s
going to be a lot harder getting such information in the
future. After the decision, Garcia said he’ll start
using his personal email for family stuff.

Liccardo is backtracking on his original idea of having
officers pay back part of their training costs if they
leave the Dept. too early after being hired, at least
for now. Smart move by the mayor if he wants to attract
new cops to the SJPD…
Payback Provision Scrapped
—Liccardo says officer training-cost option could be
News — Aug. 25, 2015
SAN JOSE — Amid a hot mayoral race last year, Mayor Sam
Liccardo pledged he would “insist” that the city’s next
police contract require officers who leave San Jose
within several years of graduating from the police
academy to pay back a portion of their training costs.
But a one-year tentative agreement with the San Jose
Police Officers’ Association, expected to earn unanimous
approval at Tuesday’s City Council meeting, makes no
mention of this provision.
Liccardo argued during the campaign that, by having the
departing officers or their hiring agencies swallow a
percentage of training costs, San Jose would recoup some
of the estimated $170,000 per person it pours into
recruiting, training and educating police officers.
“We would all rather not see our tax dollars used to
send San Jose’s finest patrolling the streets of Los
Gatos or Palo Alto,” Liccardo wrote in his campaign
book, “Safer City, Smarter Government.”
Liccardo now says he had a change of heart after
speaking with assistant police chief Eddie Garcia in
January, just weeks after taking office as mayor.
“We talked about what we want in this contract, and
Eddie made it very clear to me at this moment it would
be a very bad idea to include this in the contract,”
Liccardo said, “because it would be a deterrent for
recruiting at a time when we are not even getting half
our academy classes filled.”
Tom Saggau, spokesman for the police union, said the
city has 140 vacancies in the police department, and
police academy classes are shrinking — going from about
40 recruits three years ago to a little more than a
dozen cadets in the last class.
The first graduating class in September 2013 after the
passage of the voter-approved Measure B pension reforms
had 41 students. Of those, only 14 remain, with most
officers having left for jobs in Mountain View, Los
Gatos and Hayward.
But Liccardo said asking students to cough up some
training costs if they leave is still a viable option
and could be discussed next year when the POA renews its
“Given the short tenure of the contact, I think we have
another bite at this apple,” he said.
The proposal from the mayor’s campaign book would have
applied to officers who leave within five years, though
that number was provisional and could change if the city
pursues the idea in the future. Saggau said the idea was
proposed at a time when every elected official seemed to
throw out solutions for retaining officers without
addressing what the union believed was the underlying
problem — Measure B, a 2012 ballot initiative that
scaled back employee pensions and changed disability
“It didn’t address the root cause of officers leaving,”
he said. “I think it would have made things worse and
motivated officers not to come here.”
In Oakland, police officers are required to pay back
some training costs if they leave before five years. The
policy has been in place for more than a decade, but
union officials there said it’s been a roadblock to
recruitment and has done little to retain cops.
“It hasn’t reduced turnover, and people are still
leaving in droves,” said Oakland police Sgt. Barry
Donelan, president of Oakland’s police union.
In an interview last week, San Jose Vice Mayor Rose
Herrera sounded less enthusiastic than Liccardo about
the issue of training investment. She said the city
couldn’t get everything it wanted in the tentative
police contract, but claimed that recouping training
costs wasn’t even a top priority.
“I think it’s something to discuss,” Herrera said, “but
the most important thing right now is to get the officer
that left to come back.”
To entice former officers to return to San Jose, the
tentative contract dangles a $5,000 bonus. But for the
first time, city officials have included a clawback — if
the officers leave again before December 2016, they have
to pay the money back.

Have a question about officer-involved shootings? The
SJPD may be able to answer your question(s) as a result
of this new feature the Dept.has initiated according to
Tuesday’s online edition of the paper…
Police Launch FAQ Page for Officer-involved Shootings
News — Aug. 25, 2015
SAN JOSE -- The San Jose Police Department has launched
a page to help answer frequently asked questions
residents may have about how officer-involved shootings
are investigated in the city, officials announced
The FAQ page will include the department's procedure for
investigating officer-involved shootings, the
department's guidelines concerning use of force, the
protocols and procedures for the department's shooting
review panel, officers' duty manuals, the role of the
Independent Police Auditor and the Santa Clara County
District Attorney in an officer-involved shooting
investigation and the Santa Clara County Police Chiefs'
Association Officer-Involved Incident Guidelines.
"Transparency is one of the San Jose Police Department's
core principles," the department stated in a news
release. "We believe it is important for the community
to understand the investigative process, oversight,
monitoring and incident review process."
The FAQ page comes a week after two officer-involved
shootings resulted in the death of two murder suspects
believed to be connected to a Lundy Avenue homicide that
left 38-year-old San Jose resident Christopher Wrenn
The motive behind Wrenn's death has yet to be released,
and a third, unidentified suspect in the homicide is
still at large.

Isn't it so true that satire and straightforward
ridicule writing sometimes cleanses the emotions? Here
is some cleansing.
Thank god we finally got the 'gay marriage' issue passed
through the Supreme Court. We couldn’t get it done
through the regular legislative process, and no way did
we want to go the equal rights for all 'civil union'
route. We chose not to choose. Instead we let nine
people from east coast schools decide for us. We all
know east coasters are so much smarter and wiser than
the rest of us.
Of course, let's see what else is there? There's still
the matter of violence in the streets and all over the
media. There's the every-other-week ‘only-in-America’
mass shootings – the new normal. What the heck!
Then there’s the hundreds year-old problem of racism in
America. We’re still fighting the Civil War; Poor
Lincoln. When is it ever going to end? The melting pot
is boiling over again. Oh yeah; there's still the matter
of the decades old unresolved immigration invasion. Look
the other way. Maybe it will go away.
The massive federal debt that everybody gave up talking
about is only a mere $18.3 trillion and counting.
Translated that comes out to about $155,000 per
taxpayer. which equals $1000 a year per each…forever?
Pass it off to our grandkids’ grandkids. We sure are a
fiscally responsible people, aren’t we?
Can’t forget the coming robotic revolution that
scientists and engineers say is happening a hundred
times faster that originally thought and threatens to
put millions out of work in a hurry. That estimate is
not from me, it comes from those in the know. Robotics
will hit fast and hard in every sector of the economy.
Once it starts, unemployment lines could double and
triple in a matter of months. I don’t hear any of the
candidates from either party talking about this, but
it’s right around the next bend in the road.
Then there is the four hundred billion dollars lost to
our economy every year because of our drug and alcohol
over consumption. Can’t go to work stoned. Don’t forget
the 43,000+ homeless people living within L.A. City
limits. That’s an accurate number. That's homeless — as
in no roof, little food, pushing loaded shopping carts;
families as well as thieves and drug dealers; knives and
guns flashing every single night. Nighty night, sleep
tight. I don’t see anyone fighting for the right to eat
or the right to have shelter, or the right to have a job
or the right to survive. Shouldn’t those be top health
care issues? Do the math and it comes out to tens of
millions of homeless nationwide. Then there are the 72
million people on some type of last chance government
assistance (food stamps, medical, housing, SSI because
they can’t find a job, educational, and direct cash
assistance). Who's paying that bill? Who else? Surely we
can't leave out the monetary corruption in our political
system, or the loss of our privacy. I could go on as the
list is long.
The current meaning of Democracy is fairly clear:
government by the corrupt over a population of the dazed
and confused. Control the population through more sex,
drugs and rock and roll. Give ‘em all the distractions
they can handle. Maybe they won’t hurt too much, protest
too much, burn too much, shoot too much. Distract them
and maybe they, too, will just go away.
But we got our gay marriage passed, and that’s what’s
important, that’s the most important thing. The
definition got changed by the Nine in black. Or should I
say the Five? Hooray for that!! Next we can change it so
C- students can get into Stanford on scholarship.
Qualifications don't seem to matter any longer. Just
change the definition to fit any particular popular
political agenda. Standards, what are you talking about,
there are no standards.
Now, because of the way it was done, we'll be fighting
over the definition of marriage for the next two hundred
years and counting — another civil war — just what we
needed. When are we ever going to learn?
But hey, things are still great in America. Oh say can
you see! Keep your head in the sand. Pay up.
Feel better now that you've got all that off your chest,
Dave? Hope so. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going out to
the garage to find some rope so I can hang myself!

political decisions. However, I wanted to share that we
also have our crime issues up here in Roseburg, Oregon.
I have attached a copy of the Sheriff's dispatched calls
printed in our local paper, The New-Review, on Thursday
March 20th. As you can see, danger lurks behind every
tree and stump up here.

I’m sending you a video of Peggy Hubbard and how she is
taking on the Black Lives Matter movement. Fox News
played snippets of her video, but to understand how
angry she is, you need to see all of it. If you choose
to include it in the Farsider you should probably warn
the readers that she uses lots of profanity to get her
points across. I’ll bet she is getting lots of hate mail
from the supporters of Black Lives Matter.
T.P. is on point. If you are troubled by profanity, you
will want to skip this. Otherwise click

HERHOLD RAISES A STINK ABOUT GARBAGE TRUCKS WITH LICENSE
As an addendum to last week’s article about the idea of
installing license plate readers on the fleet of garbage
trucks in San Jose as a means of finding stolen and
otherwise wanted vehicles, columnist Scott Herhold
agreed with the ACLU by voicing his opposition to the
concept in Tuesday’s paper…
Plate Plan Should be Trashed
News — Aug. 25, 2015
Once you get past the jokes (“Trash Stalking,” one wit
called it), the idea of equipping garbage trucks in San
Jose with license plate readers for the police settles
with a thud. It’s a bad and intrusive idea.
First proposed by Councilman Johnny Khamis — and
endorsed for exploration by Mayor Sam Liccardo and
Councilman Raul Peralez — the idea is to let the trucks
record the plates and locations of every vehicle along
With the license plate numbers, the advocates say, the
police can quickly identify stolen cars and deter
But the cost to our privacy — our notion of how to lead
our lives without government interference — runs
unacceptably high. This idea should be buried as soon as
possible in the nearest unmarked grave. Khamis proposed
the license plate readers on the garbage trucks for a
rational reason. Unlike regular city vehicles, they
traverse every city street every week.
“I got this idea from a police captain, and I thought it
was a great idea,” Khamis said last week at a meeting of
the council’s rules committee. “We’re merely looking for
advice to see if it’s doable.”
Here’s the problem, well enunciated by Chris Conley, a
policy attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union.
If this is done repeatedly and over a long time, it can
reveal intimate details of anyone’s life.
Was that you who parked outside a gun store five times
in the past month? Was that your car outside the gay bar
or in the parking lot of the bail bondsman? Why did you
visit a gang neighborhood last week?
If the technology is good enough, it might reveal a
history of your behavior and habits in the past year.
And that information is both powerful and dangerous.
Liccardo said at the council’s rules meeting that there
is no expectation of privacy on a public street. That
doesn’t mean the government should monitor all your
moves. “There’s a huge difference between the idea that
when you’re walking down the street, you may be seen by
a neighbor, and the notion that someone is recording
everything you’re doing,” Conley says.
And that’s only the beginning. With information this
valuable, there’s a question about how securely it’s
maintained. What kind of protection is there against
hackers? For that matter, who will see this information
aside from police? Will it be given to the IRS or the
FBI? What if it’s legally demanded by divorce attorneys
If you began with a list of the license plates of stolen
cars, and the reader said only yes or no (green or red)
as the truck passed, it might be acceptable. This is
technology directed to a narrow purpose.
Without that limitation, this is a dangerous idea. We
have other ways of recovering stolen vehicles, among
them through GPS devices or old cellphones hidden in
your car. “I’m a big fan of technology,” said Councilman
Chappies Jones, who was the lone dissenter in the 4-1
rules vote last week to explore the issue. “But this
particular proposal is a little too extreme. It almost
feels like ‘1984.’ ” Amen, Mr. Jones. Only there’s no
“almost” about it.

Aug. 18: Steelers linebacker James Harrison made his
sons return two school sports trophies that they
received just for participating. He said, "These
trophies will be given back until they earn a real

first dad to volunteer his kids for "The Hunger Games?"
When I was in school, I used to give myself a
participation trophy. It was called a Snickers bar.
Now that I'm a father it's more complicated. When my son
and I race, I let him win. So now he thinks he's really
fast. I don't have the heart to tell him that anybody
can beat me in a race.
The first time my son went to the bathroom by himself,
my wife and I applauded wildly. Now I'm afraid that when
he grows up and goes to the restroom he's going to ask
the guy in the next stall for a little applause. So I

Aug. 18: For a lot of children, the party known as
summer is over today. The pencils are sharpened. The
taters have been totted. Do you know it's illegal to
send your kid to school without posting a picture of the
kid with a backpack?
Don't worry, kids. School will end eventually and then
you'll get to go to a different kind of school called
work, and it only ends when you get old and die.
There's boxing news. Floyd Mayweather defeated Manny
Pacquiao and since that night over 30 lawsuits have been
filed alleging the fight was a fraud. People are
demanding their $100 back on the grounds that Pacquiao
didn't reveal he had a shoulder injury until after the
fight. They're Pacqui-outraged.
I was there. I paid a lot more than $100 to see that
fight. But I can personally attest that it was real. It
was a real boring fight, but it was a real fight.
Listen, if we could sue every HBO event that was a
letdown, everybody involved with the new season of "True

on there, yes it is on there. He's probably sweating
According to the hackers, members of the Ashley Madison
site are 95 percent men. This is why we need the Addyi

Aug. 20: The New York Times is reporting that next week
the L.A. County Sheriff's Department will present
evidence to prosecute Caitlyn Jenner for her role in a
fatal car accident that happened in Malibu earlier this
year. Which I have to say is crazy. Caitlyn Jenner had
nothing to do with that. Bruce Jenner is the one that
was in that accident.
Josh Duggar was outed for signing up on Ashley Madison
using the screen name "Josh the man" to meet women for
sex. He released a statement today apologizing for
cheating on his wife while serving as executive director
of the Family Research Council. I guess that's not the
sort of family research they had in mind for him.
Aug. 24: Donald Trump had a rally at a football stadium
in Mobile, Alabama, after planning to have it in a hotel
ballroom. It got too big for the ballroom, so they moved
it to the convention center. It got too big for the

President-elect Trump discusses all of the big issues,

He even talked about the weather and how the weather
might affect his hair. "You know if it rains I will take

just dip it in a bucket? You don't have to wait for the

Vice President Joe Biden has received president Obama's
blessing to run for president. Not that he necessarily
needs it, but Biden hasn't made a decision yet, but he
plans to as soon as Amazon delivers the magic eight ball
There was a time when it seemed unimaginable that Joe
Biden could ever be taken seriously enough to win his
party's nomination, but Donald Trump just blew that idea
right out the window.
A lot of people are upset because Jeb Bush used the term
"anchor babies" to describe children born of illegal
immigrants. Calling a child an anchor baby is almost as
derogatory as calling a child Jeb. But he was in
McAllen, Texas, defending himself, reminding everyone
that his wife is Mexican. You don't mention that your
wife is Mexican as much as Jeb Bush.
Bill Gates alone, lost $3.2 billion on the stock market
