Peace be with you
If you remember I said I had a couple of grievances, well the second of those reached its peak October 12th. As some of you are already aware, on January 27, 2009, I was drug out of a Board of Supervisors meeting by half a dozen shaved headed, steroidal, lock-stepping, Humboldt County Sheriffs. Bailiffs to be precise. As you recall, I was tried in a court of which I complained of cheating. As you further might recall, I spent a couple of weeks in jail. The appeals court ruled that the DA was in fact cheating. Then the DA set it for trial again. Court appearance, after court appearance went by and trial was set to begin on October 12.
The DA refuses to prosecute. It now appears that I didn’t break any “law” on January 27, 2009 after all. My file fills up a fucking file-box. Now after a year and a half of lawyering, 30 days in the hole, and hundreds of hours of legal research, its just over. No apology, no explanation, just “we’re not going to prosecute.” On the day of trial again too.
This is just like the Co-Op’s bigoted tactic. You don’t have to prove I’m a thief, you just have to act like I am a thief, and to the community at large I am labeled a thief. The Supervisors, the Sheriff, the DA, not even Phil Crandall had to prove I did anything wrong when I was addressing the Supervisors. Nor did they have to explain their actions. They punished me both with brutality, and imprisonment. By deed, and by word, they publicly proclaimed I was a criminal.
Public meetings should be made public! The legislatures speak bullshit for hours sometimes, while giving us, the public, one or two minutes. I believe they are going to continue to attempt to silence, restrict, discredit, and harass us when we speak truth to power. The illusionary qualities of their “system” requires it. If the truth be known then this would be a very different world. In a world where everyone is truly equal the rich and powerful, are equal too, and they can’t imagine just having enough. The politicians don’t want to listen to the public, they think their smarter than us. I merely point to our violent society to refute their claims of fucking brilliance.
