Gretchen Smith paid a visit to Ft Woooosh yesterday for coffee talk. Since the murder of Lifeguard Mar Tajeda in her arms and the denial of her human rights in the Rosarito jail- she has been busy putting her case together. Gretchen is a missionary who creates social change through art: crime prevention through graffiti removal and community-themed murals. She has posted over 200 positive YouTube videos about Rosarito Beach and has many local commuinity art projects under her belt. She has travelled all over the world doing this and Rosarito Beach is the first place that hasn't cooperated with her art projects and she can't understand why. Even Somali rebels gave her more materials and support than Rosarito Beach has.

Gretchen wants her pound of flesh from the man who arrrested her and kept her behind bars. She claims it was the Chief of Police who arrested her, denied her the right to a phone call and kept her in the holding cell incommunicado for 72 hours. She has had everything translated and documented the past few weeks and wants her chance to confront him before a judge. Several north of the border news outlets (including the NY Times) are working on this story and have versions ready. The City (Mayor's Office) has asked her to wait and she is holding back the story for fear of embarrasing Rosarito Beach in the media. Several authorities have suggested she return to the USA for safety- but she wants to stay and fight this injustice in court. She is holding out hope Rosarito will meet her humble demands for justice so she doesn't have to go public. Today she has a meeting at the US Consulate in Tijuana. I don't know how this will turn out- but she is very strong willed and determined to get her justice.

Good for her. I hope she filed a complaint with the Procuraduría de los Derechos Humanos y Protección Ciudadana de Baja California, (the Office of Human Rights and Citizen Protection of Baja California).

Indeed she has. They required her to translate her 4-part video into Spanish. The Rosarito Beach FRAO office did the translation free of charge for her. That was nice. She has travelled the world, knows her rights and is dumbfounded that the worst Human Rights abuse suffered was here in Rosarito Beach-allegedly by the head of Police force. Gretchen was surprised her "unlisted" YouTube video series has 300 hits and thanks everyone for their support. She wants to handle this herself for now without public protests.

refreshing actually. Usually you don't hear a follow up at all. The lifeguards family were Firemen and I'm sure the local pressure helped get him a sentence. This is the buff worked out guy Gretchen saw running away? I don't think Mexican jails are known for fattening up their guests.
