Under this post on John Chiv’s site…
“Big D” had the following to say…
John – It may be a busy evening for those that have police scanner radios, and they may want to monitor the Arcata Police Department main frequency of 155.430 Mhz.
A list for most of the Humboldt County Public Service Radio Frequencies can be found at the link below. All frequencies are able to be received using a simple inexpensive VHF/ UHF radio scanner. No radio trunking systems are used here locally, and the only encrypted radio transmissions I have heard in the past, have been from the DOJ/ Drug Task Force.
I know that between the Thursday Night Talk program on KHSU at 7 pm, and this rally at 6pm, I will be listening to several radios throughout the evening.
My response – posted at 6:37 this am…
A vigil for David Josiah Lawson who was killed 2 months ago yesterday would be held last night. There would also be a show discussing local media hatred spewed in the comment zones and blogs like yours. Why would Big D presume he’d have to listen to his scanner? Was he afraid for his own safety? Was he interested in events that the police might have to respond to? Why did he believe either of these would mean substantive scanner listening?
By the way, how did that scanner listening go?
Seems like the scales of justice work like this on your blog. Extra-ordinary levels of presumed innocence for some, presumed guilt for future crimes for groups of others.
