Big support for Gallegos from local litigators

[The Gallegos camp says this letter of support is a historic action by the legal community.]

To the people of Humboldt County:

We are your deputy district attorneys, deputy public defenders, and private attorneys. We are Democrats, Republicans, Independents and Greens. Together we represent the vast majority of attorneys in Humboldt County responsible for administering our criminal justice system. Although we are adversaries in court who fight to prosecute or defend our citizens when they stand accused of crimes, we jointly believe the Constitution requires that the rights of all Humboldt County residents be respected, including the rights of the victims and the accused.

Our justice system requires a Humboldt County district attorney who represents the people, not special interests — who acts independently from the police to seek justice, not vengeance, and acts with reason, not anger. Today we take the historic step of setting aside our disagreements in this non-partisan race for the purpose of jointly recommending to our community the Humboldt County district attorney candidate who has shown the best ability to achieve the ideals necessary for the job. We endorse Paul Gallegos for Humboldt County district attorney.

Humboldt County Deputy District Attorneys:
Alan L. Dollison, Elan Firpo, Arnold L. Klein, Christa K. McKimmy, Ben McLaughlin, Kelly Neel
Humboldt County Deputy Public Defenders:
Christina J. Allbright, Patrick M. Coughlin, Leslie J. Kieg, Jonothan L. McCrone, Marek I. Reavis, Andrew Truitt, Edward A. Schrock

    Local attorneys know both Gallegos and Jackson, probably better than most of the voters. That they would prefer a reasonable DA is a no-brainer. They know how busy the court schedule is and understand the reality of plea bargains being an absolute necessity. They also know a lot more about the cases Jackson has been misrepresenting than the general public. Jackson’s pandering to law enforcement for endorsement is worrisome to anyone with half a brain.

    As I recall, Dikeman and Sheets both claimed that because assistant DAs were among their endorsers, that proved Gallegos isn’t a good DA. You know, unhappy and demoralized hard working employees.

    Now, Crawford says endorsement by the assistant DAs proves Gallegos isn’t a good DA. They’re just toadies for their boss.

    Attorneys are asked to judge each other all the time -(For example, The President of the United States asks the American Bar Association to rate lawyers and judges when they’re deciding who to pick for Supreme Court nominations.)

    That list of attorneys includes persons that worked with and against Jackson when she was a Deputy District Attorney and people that worked with and against her when she became a civil lawyer for the last seven years ( it’s worth noting that she has not tried a criminal case in all of those seven years).

    An honorable attorney is one who has respect from the persons within their own firm but also, from the legal community at large.

    Jackson has none (but the cops and the prison guards would like her in, so that they can get their: “stay out of jail no matter what they do”, card back)

    It also is quite impressive that all these attorneys have publicly endorsed Gallegos. If you know any attorneys not on the list, ask them if they’ll tell you what they think. I have–and what I hear is that they would never want to see Jackson as DA because she’s mean, vindictive, and judgmental as hell. Innocent until proven guilty isn’t in her lexicon.

    Chris, some of the people on the list don’t do any criminal work. And some of them are very conservative politically speaking.

    And if you think we all went through 19 years of school hoping we can collect retainers for easy wins, you don’t understand the profession.

    Is self-interest a factor in the endorsements? Certainly. But prosecutorial independence from law enforcement is essential to checks and balances necessary to liberty. Worth Dikeman lost my vote when he dismissed the whole notion as a non-issue. Jackson’s responses have been more prudent, but those endorsements raise as many if not more flags as those of defense attorneys.

    Remember the young girls who had their eyelids pealed back to have pepper spay applied directly to there eyes, while they were protesting in then Congressman Rigg’s office?
    The Humboldt County Deputy Sheriffs fought for the legal right to continue to use that technique. Hundreds of thousands of dollars were spent to retain the right to keep that technique in their arsenal to use on future protesters. The only think stoping them right now is a DA committed to civil rights. You think Jackson would have any objections. Not if the protesters are trespassing. Since that’s breaking the law, they gave up there rights. What about the rights of the property owners, that what she’d want to know?!?!

    Jackson ran ads in the Senior News stating that as DA she would prosecute and imprison every person accused of crime by any of the law enforcement agencies in our county.

    That is a promise that would obviously be impossible to keep. It would also violate the clearly understood role of any District Attorney. The DA’s job is not to rubber-stamp the judgments of law enforcement agencies. That is how governments impose their will on the people of countries we Americans have generally labelled “police states.”

    All public employees, elected as well as appointed, must respect and obey the rule of law.

    Well, to try to retain that “right,” but keep in mind that the plaintiff’s won that suit. In any event, it certainly was a colossal waste of money spent defending something that the cops should never have been doing in the first place.

    “The only think stoping them right now is a DA committed to civil rights.”

    Not really. The plaintiffs won a judgement saying that the use of pepper spray against the nonviolent protesters was excessive force. So no, it’s not just up to the DA.

    Oh, I agree. Gallegos gets my vote. Along with her questionable integrity (as evidenced by numerous distortions and untruths in her campaign ads), Jackson is just way too cozy with law enforcement interests, which have given her tens of thousands in campaign cash. We need a D.A. who is independent of the cops and can provide at least somewhat of a check against potential law enforcement excesses. And as your example of the Pepper Spray Case illustrates, these excesses are sometimes not just potential, but all too real.

    As you may recall, former DA Terry Farmer approved and defended that insane torture-by-pepper-spray policy at the time. Gallegos defeated Farmer and certainly the Pepper Spray Case was one of the issues that was being discussed in that race, though I don’t remember whether Gallegos actually took a clear position on it or not (at any rate, it was still in litigation at that point). It seems like Jackson would like to take us all back to the days when the DA was, in effect, just a rubber-stamping appendage of the Sheriff’s Dept, but I don’t think that’s what the majority of the County’s voters want. We’ll see.

    Several points about this list.

    First, as said above, defense lawyers are always happy to have a weak DA.

    Second, the fact that his own hand-picked employees endorsed him is meaningless. Imagine if your boss asked you directly or indirectly to help and you refused! You may as well update your resume & start looking.

    Third, there must be 500 attorneys in the county & this list is by no means a majority. Excluding his own employees & the public defenders, only 50 attorneys signed this list.

    Fourth, other attorneys are on Alison Jackson’s official list of endorsers. She just didn’t think to make an add out of it.

    Fifth, public defenders are notoriously liberal. Of course they would want the more liberal Gallegos.

  47. Farrell Broughton

    Our government, on all levels, local, state, federal, are supposed to have checks and balances to insure equal rights for all and to prevent corruption. Our prosecutors job is not to inflict vengeance or to blindly endorse the actions of the police. Our prosecutors job is to uphold the law, protecting everyone’s civil rights. Jackson, being in the Terry Farmer/Worth Dikeman camp views the world through a very narrow scope. Supporters of Jackson should beware: her scope probably excludes you and your rights as well. Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.

    I want to remind voters that in early 2008 Mr. Gallego’s forgot to add Jason Whitmill’s two prior felonies at whitmill’s sentencing for evasion allowing Whitmill out of prison two years early and twelve days before he decided to race down hiway 299 at 113 mph drunk and on meth causing the horrible wreck that killed Nicole Quigley and almost killed her mother. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THIS TYPE OF INCOMPETENCE. Please vote Allison Jackson on Nov.2

    With all due respect to Mr. Quigley, or whoever is using his name to exploit a victim of crime, the Quigley numbers don’t add up and the argument makes no sense.

    First, prior felonies in and of themselves do not result in additional prison time. Assuming the blogger means prior prison terms, two prior prison terms would have only resulted in one year of actual additional time, meaning that Whitmill would still have been out of jail long before the tragic accident even if they had been charged.

    Second, there is no evidence that Gallegos “forgot” to charge prior felonies. There are many legitimate reasons prior “felonies” are not charged and for Jackson to mislead this poor family into believing it was just an oversight or mistake is parasitic.

    It seems that Jackson should tell her supporters (or her bloggers) the facts rather than let them cast false blame to exploit tragedy for political gain. Sad.

She’s claiming that she interpreted the T-S’s decision to NOT endorse either of the candidates in the primary as somehow a choice to endorse both of the candidates. If that’s her level of reading comprehension, and that of her campaign staff…

    Just like Jackson’s fake endorsements, she blames others for her mistakes, and offers an explanation that is, to put it politely, lacking in credibility.

    By the way, I think the Times-Standard also comes off looking pretty silly for repeatedly accepting and publishing her advertisements that made the false claim of an endorsement from their own editorial board. Don’t they at least glance at advertisements before they are published? Or after?
