    Interesting question. Apparently under California law for many years, the police have been legally allowed to secretly audiotape people whom they interact with during their duties. They don’t have to ask permission or even tell the person that they are being recorded. It seems pretty obvious that since this is a voluntary program, the police are using it, and sometimes manipulating it, toward their own ends. My police officer, for example, repeatedly whistled into his microphone in order to try to block out the sound of angry pedestrians yelling at him about the way he was mistreating me.

    It’s a little late to save a job that I already lost.

    Thank you, Tom, you’re very kind. No one’s perfect, but the job description of the political cartoonist is to call out injustice and unfairness and hypocrisy wherever you see it.

    This is merely about getting my case in front of a jury. If I don’t pay that $75,000 bond, I never get that shot.

    Just to elaborate a little bit further, I don’t need to raise money for my legal fees because I have an excellent lawyer – one who has two other cases against the LA Times – willing to work on a contingency.

    I appreciate your support even if it seems a little bit less then wholehearted. Please bear in mind, however, going forward, that editorial cartooning is not a profession in which supporting anyone works very well. It’s inherently about complaining and blaming. If you want to see more nuanced stuff, I have books and columns.

    Thank you, I appreciate it. However, this fundraiser is not for my legal bills but rather for an exorbitant $75,000 bond that the LA Times is forcing me to post just to have my case heard in court. The details are all at the link. I’m not going to get any of the money.

    I have not filed a lawsuit demanding a specific financial remuneration. I have requested my job back, a retraction, and an apology. I don’t think that’s asking for too much.

    Hundreds of donors beg to differ.

    It’s pathological to dislike a politician because she murders hundreds of thousands of people?
    No.
    It’s psychotic to make excuses for murderers.
