UF bell tower trolled Richard Spencer with black national anthem (Tampa Bay Times)

Thanks to UF Music Professor Laura Ellis -- this is so cool! I wonder if the racist energumen knew the tune?

Inside the University of Florida Phillips Center, Richard Spencer was about to take the stage Thursday to spread his message of white supremacy. Outside, bells chimed a message of unity.

CNN reports that music professor Laura Ellis climbed 11 flights of stairs in the university's carillon tower to play Lift Every Voice and Sing, also known as the black national anthem.

"I think it was an appropriate time to play this song, to show our support for those who need it the most," Ellis told CNN.

Lift Every Voice and Sing began as a poem written by James Weldon Johnson in 1900 at Jacksonville's all-black Stanton School to be part of a celebration for Abraham Lincoln's birthday.

Johnson, a civil rights activist, was also the school's principal. Johnson's brother, John Rosamond Johnson put the poem to music.

The song was later adopted by the NAACP as its official song in 1919. It became a staple during the civil rights movement and remains a musical tradition in social, political and religious events in the African-American community.

Thanks for police preparation in Gainesville and St. Augustine

Recent events in St. Augustine (August 28, 2017) and Gainesville (October 19, 2017) show excellent police work and planning. No murders here when racists came to town.

Thank you to wise government and police officials in both communities.

Americans cherish both free speech and human rights. Thanks to outspoken activists and lawyers, the First Amendment now lives in Northeast Florida, where we're nurturing and encouraging people to speak their minds in civil discourse.

Our Founders knew that the answer to speech is more speech, not repression.

I love how the University of Florida President Kent Fuchs, the City of Gainesville, Alachua County and the State of Florid handled rebarbative reprobate reptilian reactionary racist Richard Spencer.

I love how St. Augustine handled the August 28, 2017 City Commission debate on Plaza de la Constitucion Civil War veteran monument.

It comes down to training, caring and respect.

Three cheers!

We're Americans. We're all in this together. As LBJ said to Congress after Selma, "We SHALL overcome!"

Editorial: UF shows how to preserve free speech

The University of Florida was forced to navigate a treacherous terrain of constitutional concerns and public safety this week, all in a glaring public spotlight. In the end, Thursday's appearance by Richard Spencer was a success — as much as an unwelcome visit from a notorious white nationalist can be. The university, under the careful leadership of president Kent Fuchs, kept students safe and accommodated everyone's rights, while Spencer's appearance amounted to nothing but an amateurish spectacle.

UF, the state's premier university with more than 50,000 students, had little choice but to allow Spencer's visit. Public institutions cannot censor speech, even by someone who espouses "peaceful" ethnic cleansing and a white ethno-state. And even after Spencer's "Unite the Right" rally on a Virginia campus in August devolved into violence and left a woman dead, UF administrators could not prevent his visit, they could only prepare for it. That meant a state of emergency being declared in Gainesville by Gov. Rick Scott, the influx of more than 1,000 law enforcement officers to watch over nearly 2,500 demonstrators and a virtual suspension of normal campus life — not to mention the outsize attention Spencer craves. The most serious incident — involving the arrest of three men charged with attempted homicide and accused of chanting about Adolf Hitler and firing a gunshot as they confronted a group of protesters — occurred after the Spencer's appearance. But the overall preparation by the state and the university paid off.

Such is the price of the First Amendment. The cost came to nearly $600,000, borne by taxpayers. It's a lot of money, yes, but it was a necessary investment to prevent injury and preserve free speech.

Why didn't Gainesville become Charlottesville when Richard Spencer came to visit?
Arek L Sarkissian, Naples (Fla.) Daily News

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — On the day after white supremacist Richard B. Spencer delivered a speech that brought 2,500 people – mostly protesters – to the University of Florida, President Kent Fuchs said what happened in Charlottesville, Va., was a wakeup call.

“If Charlottesville had not occurred I don’t think we would have taken it as seriously,” Fuchs said on Friday. Seeing those images, the assault weapons and that death, just woke me up.

“That was my wakeup call."

Gainesville also benefited from timing. A Confederate memorial statue that stood for years in its downtown was no longer there. The statue, known as “Old Joe,” was moved in August, two days after white supremacist and anti-fascist groups engaged in a series of clashes in Charlottesville that turned deadly.

“They didn’t have anything to rally around like they did in Charlottesville,” Fuchs said. “But they also revealed their tactics, like tiki torches, that we were able to ban.”

Fuchs and 1,000 law enforcement professionals from around the country braced for the worst as Spencer planned to speak Thursday at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. By sunset, only two people had been arrested amid the protests near the venue. Several skirmishes were promptly quelled.

A shooting occurred about a mile south of campus as protesters left the event, and three of Spencer’s supporters were arrested in connection with the incident later that night. No one was injured, and the men from Texas are facing attempted homicide charges.

“That’s a huge component of luck, that no one was hit by that bullet,” Fuchs said. “Or if it happened on campus or god forbid if someone was hurt, we would be having a very different conversation.”

A Gainesville police officer actually heard the gunshot and arrived at the scene in seconds. Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell said the abundance of officers at the event sent a message to anyone with plans to cause trouble.

“We also had the luxury that I don’t think Charlottesville did of at least six weeks of planning,” Darnell said. “The planning and capability of marshaling all of those resources helped.”

Darnell called on the Florida Sheriff’s Association and Gov. Rick Scott to summon resources from across the state. Specialized teams were clustered around the center on rooftops, placed undercover within the crowds and monitored video cameras.

The officers who responded were told to have a standard for arrests. If someone threw a punch, they went to jail, she said.

“If someone threw a wad of paper at you, we’d tell them to knock it off,” she said. “But throwing a punch at somebody reaches the level of an arrest.

“Those were the rules of engagement, which were clear and worked out beautifully,” she said.

Fuchs said rated the communities' response to the event excellent. But now he has to find a way to cover its $600,000 cost. There’s no money in his budget or any research institution to cover such a cost.

“That’s 1,000 student tuitions right there,” Fuchs said. “It’s not sustainable.”

Fuchs said he hoped the university's efforts to guard against potential violence would begin discussions to find a more sustainable solution to contend with such divisive events.

The resources expended, he said, helped subsidize hate speech.

“I’m not looking for money, I want a solution for this nation,” Fuchs said

Behind-scenes logistics at protest let officers control chaos

By Cindy Swirko

Thursday’s “rules of engagement” were for officers to stay hands off until demonstrators laid hands on one another.

When a man with a swastika T-shirt was punched by a Richard Spencer protester and chased down Hull Road Thursday, police intervened only when he ran as far as he could before hitting a line of officers backed by trucks across the road. Officers grabbed him and pulled him behind the line.

When two supporters of Spencer’s white nationalist ideology were mobbed by protesters, police watched behind barricades as the men — visibly nervous and shaken — were enclosed by the chanting, yelling opponents. An irritating substance was sprayed and three people, possibly including the supporters, were taken by authorities for treatment.

Inside a command post, law enforcement was watching it all. Cameras placed on several buildings beamed the live action to leaders of the key agencies involved in safety at the event at the University of Florida.

Among them was Alachua County Sheriff Sadie Darnell, who said the rules of engagement Thursday were hands-off until hands went on a supporter or protester.

“Basically, person-to-person violence or battery of a public safety officer was not going to be tolerated. We had high tolerance for property crimes. If somebody was stomping on a bike we might let them go but if someone was turning over a car or breaking a series of windows we would act,” Darnell said. “If it’s posturing or verbal, that’s all part of freedom of speech. If blows started being thrown, we were prepared to step in.”

The decisions by police fall in line with the First Amendment constitutional right assembly and speech.

Clay Calvert, director of the Marion B. Brechner First Amendment Project at UF, said Spencer’s inside protesters — who weren’t violent, but booed, told him to leave and questioned why he was there — did not participate in what is called by law a “heckler’s veto,” despite Spencer’s claims.

Calvert said the term heckler’s veto comes from a court case from Skokie, Illinois, where a court determined that Nazis could march through the city, despite its heavy Jewish presence. It held that it was the government’s responsibility to protect the Nazis from a hostile reaction, he said.

Thursday, police were required by law to protect Spencer and other speakers on stage from violent acts, but not from “boos or hisses,” he said.

Spencer became visibly frustrated as the crowd relentlessly chanted and booed, which made it difficult for him to make coherent sentences.

“He clearly did not anticipate the reaction,” Calvert said. “But the burden is on him to have a larger microphone in this case ... The First Amendment gave Richard Spencer the right to speak, but it didn’t give him the right to speak effectively.”

Few incidents occurred on the University of Florida campus when Spencer, who espouses white nationalist beliefs, spoke. However, three white nationalists were arrested on attempted murder charges after law enforcement officials said one of the men fired a shot at protesters after the event.

Protesters vastly outnumbered Spencer’s supporters. Local authorities didn’t know how many people to expect on both sides leading up to Thursday, so reinforcements were called in. Many were specialists — rapid response teams, SWAT teams, bicycle police.

More than 1,000 officers came from across Florida. All received training from local law enforcement on the rules of engagement so that no matter how situations may have been handled at home, they were to follow the specified procedures here.

Darnell said commanders were monitoring the scene at the county’s Emergency Operations Center with the help of cameras on buildings that enabled them to see where confrontations were occurring, the marching and chanting, and the speech inside the Phillips Center.

Officers, including some perched on top of buildings, were also relaying information. Rarely did commanders get nervous about what they were seeing and hearing.

“The speech — seeing the energy level and tension rising there was a concern. It could have been a flashpoint at any time,” Darnell said. “Some of the skirmishes were a concern. But I knew we were so prepared and had the right people involved, that were going to make the right decisions.”

UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said life returned to normal on campus Friday. UF President Kent Fuchs, in a meeting with The Sun a week before Spencer’s speech, said he does not foresee and policy changes — such as requiring that a student sponsor any speakers who rent UF facilities — as a result of the Spencer experience.

Sikes reiterated that Friday.

“I am not aware of anything changing. I expect us to review our policies just to make sure we are comfortable where we are,” Sikes said. “In terms of the communication we were able to get out to the community, the community seemed to understand our responsibility ... and seems to be very knowledgeable about what was going on.”

Clay Calvert, director of the Marion B. Brechner First Amendment Project at UF, said Spencer’s inside protesters, who weren’t violent but booed, told him to leave and questioned why he was there, did not participate in what is called by law a “heckler’s veto,” despite Spencer’s claims that they were.

Calvert said the term heckler’s veto comes from a court case from Skokie, Illinois, where a court determined that Nazis could march through the city, despite its heavy Jewish presence. It held that it was the government’s responsibility to protect the Nazis from a hostile reaction, he said said.

Thursday, police were required by law to protect Spencer and other speakers on stage from violent acts, but not from “boos or hisses,” he said.

Spencer became visibly frustrated Thursday as the Phillips Center crowd chanted and booed, not letting up throughout his talk, which made it difficult for him to make coherent sentences.

“He clearly did not anticipate the reaction,” Calvert said. “But the burden is on him to have a larger microphone in this case ... The First Amendment gave Richard Spencer the right to speak, but it didn’t give him the right to speak effectively.”

New Orleans Prosecutors Accused of Using Fake Subpoenas (NY Times)

Too many prosecutors act like abusive authoritarians, pig-ignorant of  our Constitution and Bill of Rights.  Here in St. Augustine, our Seventh Circuit State's Attorney does not comply with the National District Attorney's Association National Prosecution Standards.  RALPH JOSEPH LARIZZA is President of the Florida Prosecuting Attorneys Association for the next two years.  THANKS to The New York Times for continuing coverage of abusive prosecutors.

As Justice Louis Brandeis wrote, "Our government ... teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.”

New Orleans Prosecutors Accused of Using Fake Subpoenas

Topped with the word “subpoena” and the seal of the district attorney in New Orleans, the documents carried an air of authority. They instructed people to appear before prosecutors “to testify to the truth,” and they warned that “failure to obey” the missive could lead to a fine and imprisonment.

But the personalized documents were never endorsed by any court. Instead, according to a federal civil rights lawsuit brought on Tuesday in New Orleans, the papers that were disguised as subpoenas were central to a sustained and fraudulent effort by local prosecutors to coerce witnesses.

The lawsuit is an escalation of a controversy that emerged this year in Louisiana’s most populous city, but it also brings new scrutiny to the bare-knuckled tactics that officials across the country sometimes use to build cases.

The lawsuit, filed by seven plaintiffs, accused local prosecutors of menacing prospective witnesses with what were supposedly subpoenas. Sometimes, the lawsuit said, officials asked judges that people be jailed as material witnesses after they balked at the demands for private meetings with prosecutors.

The approach, the lawsuit said, intended “to create a culture of fear and intimidation that chills crime victims and witnesses from asserting their constitutional rights.” It added, “As a result of these policies, crime victims and witnesses in Orleans Parish know that if they exercise their right not to speak with an investigating prosecutor, they will face harassment, threats, arrest and jail.”

The suit contends that prosecutors repeatedly deceived witnesses and judges, and abused a provision of Louisiana law that allows, in some circumstances, for the detention of witnesses whose testimony is “essential.”

In one instance, according to the lawsuit, a woman was jailed for eight days after she refused to meet with the authorities about a murder case. In another episode, a victim of domestic violence was held for five days after defying the district attorney’s request; the man who abused her ultimately pleaded guilty but was not sentenced to jail.

“Creating their own templates that are purported to be valid legal documents to secure private meetings with witnesses is really on another level,” said Anna Arceneaux, an American Civil Liberties Union lawyer who is involved in the case that was filed Tuesday.


‘Subpoena’ From New Orleans Prosecutors 

A document from the district attorney's office demanding testimony from a witness. The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit saying that this and other documents were falsely labeled "subpoenas" to trick witnesses.

Leon A. Cannizzaro Jr., the district attorney for Orleans Parish, said in a statement on Tuesday that “no individual who alleges that they were aggrieved by my office’s policies and practices has contacted me,” and that he expected his office and its employees to be “completely vindicated.”

In federal court, he said, “naked allegations must be supported by substantive proof.”

The behavior of Mr. Cannizzaro’s prosecutors has been the subject of outrage and frustration since his office’s use of fraudulent documents became public this year.

“It was improper,” Mr. Cannizzaro told a television station in the spring, when he moved to quell an uproar by substituting “notice to appear” for “subpoena.”

“That was incorrect,” he said. “I take responsibility for that.”

On Tuesday, Ms. Arceneaux said that even changing the label to “notice to appear” would be insufficient. “Those documents have the same purpose,” she said, “and that is to coerce and mislead witnesses into believing that they are required to appear at the district attorney’s office.”

It is not unusual for law enforcement officials to struggle to gather testimony, often because witnesses fear retaliation or do not trust the authorities. Officials typically try to overcome such reluctance with incentives, like relocation or immunity, or long conversations that prove persuasive.

“Really good detectives can really make a huge difference,” said Glenn F. Ivey, a defense lawyer in Washington who was the state’s attorney for Prince George’s County, Md. “They can talk to people and convince them to testify.”

Like several other lawyers, Mr. Ivey said he had never heard of allegations like the ones in New Orleans, where prosecutors have long used written correspondence to try to secure testimony.

According to records provided by lawyers involved in the litigation against Mr. Cannizzaro’s office, prosecutors have been sending what critics call “fake subpoenas” since at least 1999. Lawyers in New Orleans, though, said they believed the practice had intensified since Mr. Cannizzaro, who was elected in 2008, became district attorney.

Defense lawyers are already discussing whether old cases might be susceptible to challenges if they involved witnesses who received documents that were improperly marked as subpoenas.

“The possible negative impact of this is limited only by your imagination, I think,” Mr. Ivey said. “This is such an affirmative abuse of state power that is really shocking to me that they would do this.”

Attorney General: Prosecutor influenced girlfriend's cases (AP)

Another Republican caught in a sex scandal, this one involving case-fixing by a Republican elected prosecutor in Pennsylvania. Does this remind you of the corrupt case-fixing mentality here in St. Johns County under supercilious State's Attorney RALPH JOSEPH LARIZZA?

Attorney General: Prosecutor influenced girlfriend's cases
By JOE MANDAK, Associated Press

PITTSBURGH – A 72-year-old Pennsylvania prosecutor obstructed justice and misused the power of his office by improperly intervening in criminal cases involving his 39-year-old heroin-using girlfriend, who is now in state prison on a check-forgery case, a state grand jury found.

The finding led the attorney general's office to filed 17 charges late Thursday against Mercer County District Attorney Miles Karson. They include nine obstruction counts and six charging misuse of government powers.

Karson, a Republican, was elected in 2015 in the largely rural county 60 miles (96.6 kilometers) north of Pittsburgh that borders Ohio.

Karson's defense attorney, Alexander Lindsay Jr., didn't immediately respond to messages seeking comment Friday. But he told WTAE-TV that the investigation is "obviously politically charged, which makes us look at it, shall we say, more carefully."

Among other things, the grand jury found Karson asked the woman's probation officer last year to not put her in jail after she acknowledged using heroin and would fail a drug test. He also allegedly tried to get two different judges to release her on bond instead of jailing her in separate criminal cases by claiming to be a family friend when he actually was her boyfriend.

The requests were "made at a point in time when the defendant was in a romantic relationship" with the woman, which means Karson "had a conflict of interest in her criminal cases," the criminal complaint said.

"The details of this investigation are disturbing," Attorney General Josh Shapiro said Friday. "No one is above the law — whether it's a drug dealer on the street corner or an elected public official."

Karson is charged with contacting the Farrell police chief, asking him to recommend a low bail amount to keep the woman out of jail after she was charged last year with forging more than $30,000 in checks. The checks allegedly were taken from her former employer with the help of another man — not Karson — that police also described as her "boyfriend."

Karson allegedly interfered in a child custody battle involving the other boyfriend's biological child, telling an attorney involved that the man was the target of an active heroin investigation, when that wasn't true, the complaint said.

Karson's alleged lover pleaded guilty in March and is now serving one to two years in prison, her attorney, Stanley Booker said Friday. He declined to comment on the woman's connections to Karson or her role in the charges against Karson.

Before the woman's guilty plea, Karson had asked the attorney general to prosecute the case against the woman because he had a conflict of interest.

Karson told The Sharon Herald newspaper that he'd known the woman's family for years and that she worked on his political campaign. As a result, Karson acknowledged calling the local district judge in the case trying to get the woman released on bail, and he self-reported his conduct to the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. It wasn't immediately clear if Karson was ever disciplined as a result.

Karson also is accused of showing up at traffic accidents involving the woman in January and March during which police said she appeared to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Karson allegedly chauffeured the woman from both scenes, preventing police from investigating or testing the woman's sobriety, the complaint said.

Karson isn't being arrested. He was mailed a court summons for a Dec. 18 preliminary hearing.

Time To Evaluate ALL Planned Unit Developments in St. Augustine, Florida (HCN)

St. Augustine has never evaluated its existing Planned Unit Developments (PUDs) a/k/a "a sneaky way to get around zoning," in the words of Cathy Brown, former PZB member and retired Council on Aging Director.   PUDs are approved, and no one ever evaluates whether they really serve a public purpose.  Past is prologue. Failure to evaluate existing PUDs makes for lousy laws and bad new PUDs.

Developers call the shots.  It's painfully obvious.

When I asked for a list in 2015, City of St. Augustine Planning and Building Director DAVID BIRCHIM said there was none, whereupon government watchdog Ms. B.J. Kalaidi went upstairs and got it for me.

What does BIRCHM have to hide?  Why won't he provide board members and the public with all PZB and HARB application files in electronic format on the web?

BIRCHIM fears transparency -- hates it so much that he said to me, "You keep chipping away!"

BIRCHIM went to work for the City of St. Augustine in 1997 after earning his graduate degree at UT; he's never worked anywhere else.

BIRCHIM's one of the reasons why developers are still throwing their weight around the City of St. Augustine.  He worked under MARK KNIGHT and ex-Mayors WEEKS and BOLES.

BIRCHIM needs to think for himself instead of acting like a shill for developers.

Here's a handy list of PUDs -- why not print it out and put it on your refrigerator and ask questions, demand answers and expect democracy?

From Historic City News:

PUD approval within St Augustine city limits

Within the city limits of the City of St. Augustine, Historic City News finds that there is very little which is more controversial than the use of a Planned Unit Development to circumvent established zoning. In fact, many critics of the practice refer to a PUD as “spot zoning”.
