  1. That was a serious sound system. It was a bit awkward to hear a few of the speakers bad mouthing the LAPD for spending $600 million on their new building while their booth was 20 feet away, but hey, if people feel strongly about it, it’s good they spoke up.

    It was interesting to see such a range of folks wanting to get up and use the mic, from the CD15 candidates, to DJ Chickenleather, to the Occupy LA protestors.
