There’s No Point in Showing Up on Time When the Courthouse at 400 McAllister Opens at 9:00AM – A Huge Line, Daily

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Sometimes, the line to get into the State Courthouse when it opens at 9:00 AM goes around the block and onto Van Ness.

So, you should just plan on getting there at little bit after 9:00 AM, ’cause no one will know the difference.

But what about the elites? Do they have a different way to get in?

Oh yes.


All right proles, enjoy your Angry Birds session…

Coming Monday to Walnut Creek: A Rally in Support of Johannes Mehserle, Killer of Oscar Grant

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

Via the hardworking East Bay Citizen comes news of a rally in support of former BART police officer Johannes Mehserle “and our Law Enforcement Officers.” It will go down on Monday, July 19th, 2010 at the Walnut Creek Courthouse at 2:00 PM. O.K. then.

But there’s a catch – only those who support Johannes can come:

“Anyone who supports Johannes and our Law Enforcement Officers may attend. This is a peaceful rally to show our support for Johannes and the injustices he is experiencing.”

I don’t know, I’m not sure which “injustices” we’re talking about here. Killing somebody by mistake, that can put you in prison, right? Is anybody saying that the jury verdict of manslaughter is an injustice? (Obviously, the absurd murder charges* just weren’t going to happen, right? So, what else was there for the jury to choose from?)

Or maybe injustices could be death threats against family members? That’s all I can think of.

Anyway, here it is

Claycord has more deets.

Will “hundreds of people” show up on Monday? There are 35 “confirmed guests” already…

*I can sort of see why murder charges brought early on, but I don’t know why they weren’t eventually dropped by the D.A. Oh well.
