Editors Note: This column was published in 2016 prior to the city council's vote for the SAPOA contract. The final vote of the City Council approved the contract (9-2) with the two dissenting votes cast by Ron Nirenberg (D8) and Rey Saldaña (D4). NOWCastSA was at the protest and rally that occurred a day before the vote and captured video and photos of the participants.
