On February 13th, 2006, Just Us and the Santa Cruz Trash Orchestra held a press conference and rally to call attention to Santa Cruz Police Department spying and their investigation clearing themselves of any wrongdoing. Police Auditor Bob Aaronson’s rejection of the results of the SCPD’s investigation of its own behavior set the tone for the meeting of the Public Safety Committee of the Santa Cruz City Council. The Committee stated that they were not going to make any decisions until they had a chance to review the forthcoming (in 30 days) report from Bob Aaronson. People were then allowed three minutes to comment on police profiling and infiltration of community meetings and homes.
