SUPPORT your local Prison Abolitionist!

To all my AZ friends/family: Thanks so much for your and likes and hope and encouraging words these past 4 1/2 years. You helped me survive some of the loneliest days and hardest nights I've endured yet by keeping our connections alive across 2000 miles.

My 55th birthday is June 13, 2019, and I plan to celebrate it in PHX (details to be announced). I'm leaving Michigan (god willing) by May 25 - and should land in an undisclosed location in the Deep Southwest soon after.

Here's my PAYPAL link for anyone who wants to shoot me $10 bucks or throw a big impromptu anarchist talent show and pass a hat or something to help me make it home. Once I land I'll be back to work on my art again, and will send a homemade gift to everyone I can...

THIS BLOG is NOW RETIRED

I began this blog in May 2009 following the death of Marcia Powell at Perryville State Prison in Goodyear, Arizona. It is not intended to prescribe the path that leads to freedom from the prison industrial complex.

Rather, these are just my observations in arguably the most racist, fascist, militaristic state in the nation at a critical time in history for a number of intersecting liberation movements. From Indigenous resistance to genocidal practices, to the fight over laws like SB1070 and the ban on Ethnic Studies, Arizona is at the center of many battles for human rights, and thus the struggle for prison abolition as well - for none are free until all are. I retired the blog in APRIL 2013.

Angry Crows Attack Police Officers In Everett, Washington

06/10/11 01:18 PM ET AP

EVERETT, Wash. -- Police in Everett, Wash., have found themselves in a flap with some unusual suspects: an angry flock of birds.

Crows have been attacking officers in the parking lot of the Everett Police Department's north precinct station. They've been swooping down and dive-bombing the officers as they walk to and from their cars.

Lt. Bob Johns says he recently was flanked by the aggressive birds and "got zinged." He says, "They're like velociraptors."

The Daily Herald reports one officer tried to use his siren to scare away the crows. The birds responded by decorating his car with droppings.

State Fish and Wildlife Department biologist Ruth Milner says the birds are simply protecting baby crows that have been kicked out of the nest and are learning to fly. She says adult crows are quite protective of their young.

City spokeswoman Kate Reardon says police and other city employees who have been attacked have agreed to let the crows be and wait out the aggression.
