Criminal prosecution of Free Speech update: 1-29-2013
The pre-trial hearing was Jan 29th, continued to Feb 4th and scheduled for trial Feb 6th at the Airport Courthouse. Let the jury be impanelled!
The Sheriff’s Dept and the D.A. want to move forward on the charge of “Erecting a sign on a State building” PC 556 against me, Bruce Boyer. After being arrested on a warrant issued by the Court, I appeared for my arraignment on Oct 24th it had been continued for my Attorney George Wallace to be present to represent me. A plea of not guilty was entered; I of course declined their offer of a no-contest plea and 24 months probation. This is of course the warrant that the D.A. filed over our Sons of Liberty L.A. Free Speech Convoy, the trailers parked in the parking lot of the L.A. Sheriff’s Station at Lost Hills, Agoura. The trailers displayed our signs, banners and flags. We displayed banners of our 1st Amendment, 4th, 5th, 7th and 8th Amendments, Justice for Mitrice, the Gadsden Don’t Tread on me Rattlesnake Flag, U.S. Flag, Texas Flag. As our letters to Sheriff Baca clearly spelled out, the vehicles were parked there as Sheriff Baca refused to defend our right to exercise our Free Speech on the streets of Calabasas, Westlake Village and Agoura Hills.
Those cities passed laws making our Free Speech criminal, Sheriff Baca chose to aid those tyrants in violating our rights, seizing our Free Speech vehicles. As those were ‘City’ ordinances, they lacked jurisdiction on ‘County’ Property, the Sheriff Station being County Property. We clearly informed the Sheriff that we would exercise our rights in that parking lot until he defended our rights on all of our streets.
For those who are confused, it’s understandable. Our First Amendment is our Bill of Rights, our Freedom of Speech. It is a violation of our rights for any City to pass a law making the display of a sign or banner on a vehicle illegal. Doing so in the parking lot of a Sheriff Station is also not illegal, it is a parking lot. Trailers are vehicles, parked properly and legally in the public parking lot. Parking a vehicle in a parking lot is NOT “Erecting a sign on a State Building”, a violation of CA Penal Code 556. The L.A. Sheriff’s Dept. seized a total of ten of our Free Speech vehicles from the Station parking lot. They seized three claiming they were ‘abandoned’, we parked three more. They seized those three claiming the lot is ‘private property’. We parked four more, three of these they seized as ‘evidence’ of PC 556. They seized the final one which displayed a banner of our 1st Amendment, after posting signs declaring the lot a ‘tow away zone’ (they lacked the legally required authority to do so, but why should they have to follow the law?).
The ten seized vehicles and our Free Speech are all in ‘custody’ and have been since Jan 2012.
So if it is not illegal, why are they doing it? That is a question they refuse to answer. The likely truth is that they want to silence us as we are asking for the truth and asserting our liberty. This they clearly do NOT want people to do and they appear willing to go to great lengths to intimidate us into silence. The incarceration of our liberties is an action they seem quite willing to take to obtain silence and compliance.
They likely think that I will be intimidated into accepting a plea and packing up and shutting up. Not a chance. My attorney has no intention of doing so either. We will defend our liberty and the backlash will serve to expose their corruption and bring about an accounting for their abuses. Pray for the truth to come out, justice and divine protection. I may well spend some time in Sheriff Baca’s dungeon, again.
