Since Kailan Meserve was first charged with serious crimes, John Chiv has been screaming for justice and trying to convict him on his bog. http://johnchiv.blogspot.com/2016/03/kailan-meserve-jury-trial-confirmed.html
If you don’t know who John Chiv is and his background, you would probably just assume him to be an overly zealot law and order supporter. Sorry folks, thats not who he is. It’s all about politics with Johnny boy. Kailan Meserve is the son of long time Arcata lefty and former City Councilperson Dave Meserve.
John Chiv, like his mentor Mathew Owen, hates people on the left and particularly people on the left that “WIN” elections. When they can’t beat them at the polls they start nefarious rumors about them in the community. One of Chiv’s favorites is that his enemies are child molesters and he always willing to pounce on the offspring of an adversary who might have step out of line. Chiv feels safe doing this because political people are considered “public figures” and all for practical purposes immune from slander and libel.
Here at the Examiner we have no idea whether Kailan Meserve is guilty as charged. Just because he has a rep in sohum of being a jerk doesn’t mean he’s guilty nor does having a father who’s a political activist mean he should be treated differently. Let have a fair trial let the evidence or lack of it speak for itself.
