It has been 7 days since the incident and many things have happened, in direct response to the attack. First was the incredible initial response to assist by Johnny 5-O ‘ and Ali who came to render aid to Californian Guardian and Silent Citizen, then the response from the community both supporters and activists the next night 21 November 2017, where cameras outnumbered guards. This continued until last night and ends because the United States Department of Justice, Office of the Inspector General (DOJ/OIG) has initiated a investigation this incident as well as the acts and activities from the last 7 days.
The cameras and the video files in stored are soon to be in the possession of :
Assistant Special Agent in Charge
United States Department of Justice | Office of the Inspector General | Los Angeles Field Office
The purpose of the investigation is to seek evidence to prosecute the Federal Employees directly and indirectly involved in the incident to include the supervisor who unlawfully used a chemical agent in direct retaliation to protected activity, this is a FIRST. As we have multiple cases of abuse by Federal Employees including many from the Department of Justice and I cannot recall having a DOJ/OIG investigation. Interviews are being scheduled for early December and we will update as more become known.
Please continue to randomly stop by and take a few pictures and video, just to send the message
