As a participant in Occupy San Diego since October 2011, I personally viewed the "questionable" practices of SDPD and was myself intimidated by officers while rallying on public sidewalks. I noticed a major difference in the way I (a senior citizen) was treated in 2011 and back in 2008 while expressing my freedom of speech. In 2008, there was never a police presence at any anti-war or single payer healthcare rally. However, when 8 of us showed up at a corner in Clairemont in Dec 2011, 8 police officers were present while we held signs on the sidewalk. What a waste of my taxpayer dollars, but what is the mayor and chief of police so afraid of?
