RAW EDIT (SOME POOR AUDIO) These interviews and this footage just came hot off the fire line of the October 2014 Klamath River Training Exchange (TREX) in which approximately 40 local and out of the area "fire-lighters" learned to use prescribed fire around homes in the fire-adapted and fire-starved mountains of the Klamath and Salmon Rivers. Interviews are both from TREX participants and local Klamath and Salmon River residents. This was a very important and healing event for our communities, multiple burns were implemented in areas with great cultural significance to Karuk and Yurok people.

This video features Greg Palast speaking on a panel of alternative media dignataries about what we can do to reach a wider audience and be more effective as journalists working outside of the mainstream distribution outlets. The short answer: "don't be so fucking dull". This was filmed at The Boston Social Forum, a counter convention of sorts that took place in the days leading up to the Democratic National Convention in 2004.
The video was meant as a prequel to my convention coverage and was filmed and upload the day before the convention started. I met a great journalist this day and together we scouted the 1st ever instance of a designated caged area called a Protest Pen, a Freedom Cage, etc etc. No, it wasn't Greg Palast.

The Following Statement was released minutes ago regarding this June 2014 incident. When asked for copies of these reports, pictures and videos, I was told the reports are not going to be released and are for OMI (internalt affairs) use only. Ariel Lawther, the woman arrested and assaulted by the officer declined comment but referred me to her lawyer who was unavailable when I called. (Left a message)
STATEMENT BY CITY SOLICITOR LOURDES SANCHEZ-RIDGE ON FINDINGS IN PRIDEFEST PARADE ARREST
PITTSBURGH, PA - “The city promised a fair and thorough investigation of a June 15arrest at the PrideFest parade. That investigation is now completed, and a final report by the Office of Municipal Investigations, including an analysis completed by an independent consultant, has determined that the officer involved did not use excessive force.
This administration is dedicated to objectivity, and objective reviews of the entirety of the evidence may not always reveal what one video, one photograph, or one statement might reveal alone. While OMI exonerated the officer in this case, it also obtained an independent third-party use of force review by an outside agency that arrived at the same conclusion. It will be city policy from this point forward to seek third-party analysis in all excessive force investigations, just as we did in this case.
Under city law, it is the responsibility of OMI to investigate allegations of employee misconduct, including allegations of police misconduct, and provide the results of their investigations to city leaders.
