SUPPORT COYOTL TEZCATLIPOCA AT HIS
FEBRUARY 3, 2006 COURT HEARING!
At the Tuesday, January 3rd meeting of the Costa Mesa
City Council, Mayor Allan Mansoor, a Minuteman
supporter and a proponent of merging local law
enforcement with immigration duties, abruptly cut off
Coyotl Tezcatlipoca, a critic of that proposal, even
though he had about 40 seconds left to speak.
Although Mayor Mansoor claims he did this because
Tezcatlipoca violated "rules" that forbid speakers
from asking the audience to stand up, he allowed
Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist to do the
exact same thing early on at the meeting: in fact,
Mansoor thanked him for what he did!
Not only does the evidence suggest that the Mayor
violated Tezcatlipoca's constitutional right to free
speech and assembly, but that he enforced the "rules"
in an arbitrary and capricious manner, and may himself
have broken a law that regulates the conduct of
council members at public meetings.
But instead of arresting the Mayor for disorderly
conduct, as should have been done, the Police Chief
ordered his officers to forcibly remove Tezcatlipoca
from the room while the meeting was not legally in
session -- this despite the fact he was fully
complying with their orders asking him to leave.
Video footage shot of the incident and numerous
witnesses allege that Tezcatlipoca was choked, hit,
kicked, and sat upon by several policemen. Then, after
they finished physically assaulted him, the cops had
the audacity of booking him on a charge of resisting
This case highlights the absurdity of Orange County's
backward system of criminal justice in the era of
Minutemen: Tezcatlipoca is facing prosecution for
offenses that were committed against him by police and
Defend the right of free speech and assembly! Show
your solidarity with Tezcatlipoca by attending his
upcoming court hearing!
