Charges Against A.N.S.W.E.R. Activist Dropped!!
Back on July 8th, 2006, I attended an anti-Minutemen/SOS protest in Hollywood & was disgusted at what I witnessed from the LAPD. They unleashed a fury of baton blows onto comrades simply videotaping the police actions. All was caught on tape, as seen above.
Jose Villa & Christen Westberry were beaten, & Jose was charged with felony "lynching".
The felony charges have been DROPPED against Jose!!!! This is great news, as the whole incident has not left my mind since that fateful day.
Also, the LAPD is going to file administrative charges, rather than criminal charges, against the officers involved. That is unfortunate, considering that the LAPD acted like criminal thugs that day.
Pictured above is Christen Westberry after the brutal LAPD beating, nursing her wounds.
