One Year after the Beatings and Evictions at Jamul

It has been over a year since the Jamul Tribe evicted Walter Rosales and Karen Toggery. The overriding reason for the evictions was for the construction of their long awaited casino. Looking back we see no progress towards a casino - only increased disharmony in the community. Since that time we've experienced the following:
Deceit by the San Diego County Sheriff's department and a subsequent whitewashing of the incident.
Lack of support by the San Diego County District Attorney
Leon Acebedo removed as the tribal chairman and subsequently landing on his feet as Executive Director of California Nations Indian Gaming Association.
Bill Mesa being selected as the new tribal chairman
