What is Predictive Policing and How Will We Resist it?
serf city revolt! writes: News of "Predictive Policing" first surfaced around the new year. Hailed as the next generation of policing, it seeks to direct police resources to "times and places" where there is a greater likelihood of crime being committed. We emphasize the unstated significance of predictive policing and point towards ways to frustrate, antagonize, or just operate within a town that will try to predict your crime before you commit it.
Outspoken Community Activist Passes Away
Skidmark Bob writes: "With great sorrow I must report that local activist Richard Snow died over the weekend. According to Senior programs at Louden Nelson Community Center he died at a meditation retreat. He was an outspoken community activist and a regular listener of Free Radio Santa Cruz."
Bad Cop Santa Cruz to Report on Cops
Bad Cop writes: "Bad Cop focuses on police accountability, know your rights education, and the dissemination of effective tactics to utilize while documenting police in Santa Cruz County. We seek to document the abuse of authority and highlight the double standard that some grant to those with badges. By documenting police actions â whether they are illegal, immoral or just a waste of time and resources â we encourage transparency and hold police accountable."
