Honorable City Council
 
Early last year, some Silicon Valley faith based organizations who were among the original first responders to the 2012 crisis at
Markham Plaza apartments were considering holding a candle light vigil condemning EAH Housing oppression and violence. This idea was later dismissed due to fear of retribution by the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s department.
 
If a facebook events page was
launched to advertise the vigil, the Santa Clara County sheriff’s department would likely be monitoring the page and profiling
 the individuals who planned to attend. Those individuals and their families would likely then be subjected to harassment,
threats and retaliation by the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s department Mr. Cary Andrew Crittenden for example, was maliciously
stalked and terrorized by Santa Clara County sheriff deputies
for his social media posts inwhich he adamantly spoke out against violence. These bullying and intimidation tactics employed by the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s department are to censor the speech, of those of us working to restore peace and stability to Markham Plaza Apartments (2000 / 2010 Monterey Highway in San Jose – ground zero of county counsel’s nuclear missile attack)
 
By sponsoring the sheriff department’s illegal thug like actions, court officials are jeopardizing public safety and the quality of life for residents, and further enabling criminal activity by EAH Housing, a toxic organization which has caused much cruel suffering. If people  worry that law enforcement is monitoring social media, that will exert pressure for them to refrain from civic engagement and not to voice their opposition to violence if they fear that they too will be maliciously targeted by a sheriff department goon squad.
 
This unprecedented degree of police misconduct sanctioned and endorsed by court officials is likely to have a
 chilling effect on public discourse, a poisonous venom to the spirit of our democracy. – a hostile and fierce criminal
 trespass upon the sacred ground of our first amendment right to free speech and assembly which was established as a safeguard for “We the people” against this very same sort of government tyranny. The wounds inflicted on this community by our Sheriff department will leave shameful hideous everlasting scars upon the region’s otherwise beautiful history. These scars will never heal and will forever testify.
 
As history remembers Al Capone, Bonnie and Clyde and other notorious gangsters, may history also remember the Judge Socrates Peter Manoukian gang.
 
Gregory Jackson
