Don't be taken for the fool that Police Chief Scott Vermeer and the special interests who are behind him think that you are. Renegade policing agencies such as MVPD exploit a Teflon coating to maintain the charade that conceals the corruption. Crime reports such as this one provide the policing agency with an inexhaustible source of free positive press coverage and allow the agency to maintain the undeserved favorable opinion of the population.

It is not a coincidence that the local papers have dramatically increased crime coverage (a.k.a. pro-police propoganda) at the same time that evidence and allegations of corruption are being made, by me and by others, against Police Chief Scott Vermeer and District Attorney Jeff Rosen.

Don't be fooled. MVPD operates in contempt of the United States Constitution and of the Constitution of the State of California. MVPD operates brazenly as if its officers and the Mountain View Municipal Corporation are above the law. Are you OK with that? If you are, then you are the real problem.

Posting "laughing my f***ing ass off at Ideafarm" is disrespectful.

"Laughing my f***ing ass off at Mr. Ideafarm" would be better.

"Laughing at Mr. Ideafarm" would be even better.

An intelligent, respectful response that opens a conversation would be best of all, especially if the poster used his real name.

Hello there, Mr Ideafarm. While I appreciate your keeping things lively and interesting in Mountain View, I do believe we are dealing with a simple rash of burglaries here. Crime sprees happen from time to time and no conspiracy theory is needed to explain them. Occam's Razor and all that. Criminals this prolific usually get caught fairly quickly, so hopefully this will end soon.

Do keep posting (perhaps without the all-caps) and continue to make Mountain View interesting.

You never know, Ideafarm could be perfectly correct. I don't know because i have never had to deal with the Mt. View police. But i do know in scabby little towns, the police are all related, and work to protect their own, no matter if they are at fault or not.

City is corrupt, PD is corrupt. now we need to take up arms and patrol our own neighborhoods, well probably catch the guy. For the MVPD to catch a burglar is the equivalent of how many guys does it take to screw up a light bulb ( pun intended). We're not to far off from taking signatures to disband this cities government and go County control.

Originally, I used ALL CAPS only to post "sign text" that I would display on my Doghouses if the MVPD hadn't seized them (unlawfully) and kept them in custody. They have all of my sign display equipment.

But I got carried away with the ALL CAPS here and in a few other Voice forums. Thanks for pointing it out.

My attorney and I will do our best to keep things lively here. I envision a very different Mountain View that has a thoroughly professional policing agency, a population that obeys the law and does not do drugs, and a community of people who use the Voice forums to vigorously and respectfully discuss the issues of the day.

Since you've asked twice, here's your answer:

The exact same behavior that produces the Nazi storm trooper behavior in Mountain View produces only a yawn from the Palo Alto police.

Behavior: Hold a sign displaying, "MTN. VIEW V. FREE SPEECH / READ ABOUT IT @ IDEAFARM.COM", while standing (lawfully) on the roadway. Someone standing on the roadway must yield right of way to approaching motorists and bicyclists. There are no other relevant requirements. (See Vehicle Code "Pedestrian Rights and Duties", which is sections 21949-21971. Web Link )

Mountain View on Central at Castro and on El Camino Real at Castro: Penal Code 370 / 372 (General Nuisance), imprisonment, two arrest warrants, $25000 bail.) (I am currently paying the $2500 bail premium to the wonderful Aladdin Bail Bonds people, who have bailed me out four times, enabling me to work with my attorney to defend myself.)

Palo Alto on San Antonio at Charleston: One PAPD officer observed for a while. I went over to him to ask whether he was interested in my sign holding activity. He just told me to make sure that I obeyed all traffic laws. I walked back into position and resumed. He watched for a while and drove away. Occasionally, a PAPD patrol vehicle would pass by my location, presumably to check for safety issues and for compliance to law. PAPD never interfered and never even interrupted me to investigate.

The difference in treatment of my sign holding activity while standing on the roadway is especially significant when you consider the fact that normally neighboring policing agencies will show solidarity with each other. For example, during a pissing contest that I was having with MVPD in 2010, I intentionally parked on El Camino Real in the very first parking space on the Los Altos side of the border between Los Altos and Mountain View. The LAPD towed my Tipee (predecessor of the Doghouse) unlawfully. LAPD eventually admitted that the tow was illegal and paid me for all of the tow expenses.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
