July 21, 2010; Source: San Francisco Chronicle | The possibility of being gunned down at work may be more present to some than to others in this sector but we would be willing to wager that staff were surprised to hear that a heavily armed man had been intercepted as he was speeding and driving erratically in his mother’s Toyota Tundra on the highway—on his way, apparently to attack higher ups at the Tides Foundation and the American Civil Liberties Union. He said he wanted to start a revolution with the bloodshed but after a gun battle he was taken into custody and later arraigned. According to this article his hatred of lawyers did not prevent him from availing himself of a public defender.—Ruth McCambridge
