• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Should be some good listening in the next week as we approach the 5th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.

The "Direct Action to Stop the War" website lists "multiple actions at multiple locations" starting at 7:30 am on their March 19 web-page at http://bayareadirectaction.wordpress.com/march-19-actions/ (complete with list and map).

They are also involved in a March 15 plan to "shut down the Richmond Chevron refinery by land, by bike, and by sea" (http://bayareadirectaction.wordpress.com/march-15-actions/).

"Coincidentally", the Coast Guard along with the City of Richmond and the Alameda and Contra Costa counties' sheriff's departments just held press demonstrations of their capability to protect security exclusion zones like, for instance, the Richmond Long Wharf (http://www.insidebayarea.com/argus/localnews/ci_8543271).

Almost makes me wish I weren't leaving for the weekend.
