2013-02-10 "Opposing rallies held at Vallejo Police Department"
by Irma Widjojo from "Vallejo Times-Herald" [http://www.timesheraldonline.com/news/ci_22560077/opposing-rallies-held-across-from-vallejo-police-department]:
It was a new twist on a familiar scene at the Vallejo Police Department, where two groups with opposing views on the police held rallies on Saturday.
Unlike prior demonstrations, those protesting the police stood across from the station, instead of at the steps. The steps were occupied by those holding signs in appreciation of Vallejo officers.
"We want to let people know that there's a venue for (those who support the police department)," organizer Sam Kurshan said.
Kurshan added that another such rally will be organized again in the future.
About 25 people held signs and a banner reading "Thank you Vallejo Police Department" outside the main headquarters' door.
Meanwhile, across the street, the opposing group of about 30 people was largely consisted of family members of Mario Romero and their supporters.
Romero was killed in an officer-involved shooting Sept. 2, in front of his home.
The family members have contested police allegations of Romero confronting the officers with what turned out to be a replica gun, and being in possession of Ecstacy.
In the latest demonstration, protesters chanted "No justice, no peace!" and held various signs demanding justice against police brutality.
The relatively peaceful Saturday rallies began at about noon, and lasted about an hour. While the two groups maintained their distance, at least a couple police protesters shouted from across the the street at those in support of the department.
"Thank you for what?" a protester shouted.
The shouts were met with no responses from those standing outside the front lobby.
At one point, Vallejo police Captain Ken Weaver was seen coming out of the station to shake hands with the those gathered in support of the department.

2013-02-08 "Support Vallejo police" letter by Sam Kurshan to the editor of the "Vallejo Times Herald"
It's time for the decent, law-abiding people of Vallejo to come out to show their support for our police. There will be a rally Saturday, Feb. 9, at noon, rain or shine, in front of the Vallejo Police Department at 111 Amador St. Please attend and let those who think otherwise know that we support our hard-working, heroic police. Please tell all of your friends, neighbors and family members so we can have the largest turnout in Vallejo history. I hope to see you there.
2013-02-12 "Cop support a success" letter by Sam Kurshan to the editor of the "Vallejo Times Herald"
I want to thank everyone who attended the police support rally on Saturday in front of the Vallejo Police Department.
It was a complete success. We assembled peacefully, orderly and silently. We displayed our banner and signs from noon until 1 p.m., and despite the vile jeers and taunts from the small anti-police group down the block and across the street, we did not respond to a single one or acknowledge their existence. A special thanks goes out to Irma Widojo and Chris Riley of the Times-Herald for covering the rally.
A Facebook page is being created to keep people informed of future support events, as well as a platform to express one's appreciation of our hard-working and heroic police.
An "Adopt a Cop" program is also being created -- individual members of the community can adopt a Vallejo police officer and check in with them on their well-being as a way to boost and maintain their morale.
Thank you and God Bless you!
A Profile of Sam Kurshan, Vallejo PD's best friend -Wasn't sure if Sam would want such a lay-out of his criminal history, but this man chooses to be the VPD's cheerleader with the VPD's approval, and associations matter alot to VPD...

PEOPLE v. KURSHAN 138 Misc.2d 354 (1988) The People of the State of New York, Plaintiff, v. Sam Kurshan, Defendant. Civil Court of the City of New York, New York County. January 5, 1988 Lori Cohen for defendant. Robert M. Morgenthau, District Attorney (Kevin Keating of counsel), for plaintiff.
[http://www.leagle.com/xmlResult.aspx?xmldoc=1988492138Misc2d354_1435.xml&docbase=CSLWAR2-1986-2006]: [ ... ] STATEMENT OF FACTS - The following findings of fact are made, for the purpose of this motion only, based upon the affidavits submitted to this court: On February 4, 1987, the defendant, Sam Kurshan, was arrested and charged with a violation of Penal Law § 240.30 (aggravated harassment). The charge stemmed from a dispute in which the defendant and his upstairs neighbor (the complainant) became embroiled in a continuing disagreement over the noise level emanating from the complainant's apartment. The defendant contended that the playing of musical instruments at what he termed inappropriate hours of the evening disturbed him. In that regard, the defendant sent three letters to the complainant and her husband. The letters were sent on December 2, 1986, December 10, 1986, and February 2, 1987. These letters were alleged by the complainant to have threatened her and her husband with bodily harm. [ ... ]
