      Tucson Activists Attempt Deportation Bus Blockade

      "U.S. Marshals and security officers were trying to remove immigration
      activists who blocked the main exit of Tucson's federal courthouse this
      morning to keep a bus that returns deported individuals from leaving. About
      two dozen demonstrators were gathered on the east side of the courthouse
      about
      eight this morning. Six of them formed a human chain, blocking the driveway
      to the courthouse at the corner of West Congress Street and South Granada
      Avenue." - Perla Trevizo, Arizona Daily Star, Oct. 11, 2013.

      Dozens of protesters tried to use their bodies as shields to prevent the
      detention of three suspected illegal immigrants stopped in front of
      Southside Presbyterian Church Tuesday night. At the end of a sometimes
      raucous confrontation, the crowd was dispersed after Tucson Police
      Department officers used pepper spray to force them back onto the
      sidewalk.

      Undercover Police, Just About Everywhere
      By JIM DWYER

      It may not have occurred to people that New York City needed to deploy an
      undercover detective to spy on Occupy Sandy, a relief operation run by
      activists that delivered food and supplies to parts of the city ruined by
      the hurricane. But Detective Wojciech Braszczok, who embedded with the
      Occupy Wall Street forces under the nom de activist Albert, was putting
      posts on Twitter last November about the Sandy operation, which, by the
      way, received consistently high grades from people for its nimble,
      effective work.

      The city now has a sturdy legion of undercover officers who have taken up
      residence in many surprising regions of civic life. Much of this began in
      early 2003, when a federal judge lifted many restraints on spying by the
      Police Department. The city had been failed by the federal intelligence
      services, and thousands died on Sept. 11. Police Commissioner Raymond W.
      Kelly and Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg created an independent intelligence
      capacity.

      So before and during the Iraq War, the organization of antiwar rallies was
      regarded as a fit matter for police surveillance; so were the monthly
      Critical Mass bicycle rallies, as well as groups protesting at the
      Republican National Convention in 2004, and a range of Islamic facilities,
      from mosques to college student clubs. Undercover New York police officers
      showed up at activists’ meetings all over the country, carrying guitars
      and knapsacks. Handlers left money for them in the wheel wells of cars.
      Field reports were stamped “NYPD Secret.” Anyone who left a scrap of paper
      on the desk at the Intelligence Division’s headquarters in Chelsea was apt
      to get his or her knuckles rapped by the commander, a former Central
      Intelligence Agency man who brought that agency’s custom of fastidiousness
      to the mess of the city.

      The unrestrained surveillance in New York public life is the physical
      embodiment of what has been taking place online over the last decade under
      operations of the National Security Agency revealed by Edward J. Snowden.
      To borrow the title of a 1918 novel about nosy Irish villagers, we have
      become The Valley of the Squinting Windows.

      But it was all O.K. because the mayor and the police commissioner said so,
      though from the outside, no one could really say what they were up to.

      Detective Braszczok was arrested this week and charged with being part of
      a gang of motorcycle riders who turned a traffic dispute into a smallish
      riot directed against a man at the wheel of a sport utility vehicle with
      his family inside. The detective’s credential as an undercover officer
      jolted many people into paying attention. “We sent out his pictures to
      everyone on our list this morning, and asked if anyone knew him,” said
      Bill DiPaola, a leader of Time’s Up, an organization that advocates for
      improved circumstances for bicycles.

      Soon, the detective’s participation in Occupy Wall Street was documented
      with pictures. No doubt video will surface soon: every one of us is now a
      videographer in an age of free-range history. Gothamist reported that he
      posted on Twitter as @evovillen about the Occupy Sandy operation:

      “*SANDY SPECIAL PART 3* REBUILDING OCCUPY TO CONNECT, MOBILIZE AND
      CO-CREATE WITH, assembly Happening at 60 wall today.”

      Gothamist’s Web site quoted a member of the Sandy relief operation saying
      that the detective was a regular at the two main distribution depots set
      up by the group in Brooklyn. He attended an activist’s birthday party at
      the Blarney stone in Lower Manhattan.

      One of the large, undiscussed questions of such surveillance is how civic
      dialogue can be influenced or distorted by police agents — perhaps as
      provocateurs, or possibly with no motive beyond maintaining cover. During
      the Republican convention, after a group making a film was arrested, a
      redheaded man standing on the street pounded on the back window of a
      police van, urging that the people inside be let go. A day later, the same
      man was videotaped being briefly put under a fake arrest, leading to
      tumult in the street from others who objected to his incarceration. They
      were unaware that the man was an undercover police officer who was walked
      down the street by uniformed officers, hands behind his back but uncuffed,
      and sent on his way: catch and release.

      The city has maintained that the expanded surveillance is necessary to
      keep society safe. No one in the Bloomberg administration has discussed
      the limits on their participation in public dialogue. Or, for that matter,
      why they ought to be standing alongside people handing out bags of
      groceries.
