I don’t know, but protesters cite California Civil Code 52.3 which might state:
(a) No governmental authority, or agent of a governmental
authority, or person acting on behalf of a governmental authority,
shall engage in a pattern or practice of conduct by law enforcement
officers that deprives any person of rights, privileges, or
immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the
United States or by the Constitution or laws of California.
(b) The Attorney General may bring a civil action in the name of
the people to obtain appropriate equitable and declaratory relief to
eliminate the pattern or practice of conduct specified in subdivision
(a), whenever the Attorney General has reasonable cause to believe
that a violation of subdivision (a) has occurred.
How much faith have we in California’s Attorney General?
A note on the source: I don’t trust the source on this, though it should be pretty straightforward whether this is accurate or not. Seems fairly close to what I could tell of one #OccupyLA protester was reading to the LAPD & LA Sheriff officers.
A definitive guide to the California Civic Code didn’t come up in Google.
