A reader sent along some photographs casino opponents have posted from Saturday’s standoff at the Jamul Indian Village:
The standoff followed Walter Rosales and Karen Toggery’s early morning removal from their homes. The two, who are not members of the federally recognized Jamul tribe, have opposed the casino, saying it would be built atop sites they consider sacred.
Here is the written agreement signed by Jamul tribal chairman Leon Acebedo, who had diffused tensions at a Saturday standoff at the Jamul Indian Village by agreeing not to tear down two dissidents’ homes until Friday.
Supervisor Dianne Jacob is expected to hold a press conference later this afternoon to talk about the issue. We’ll have more on that later.
