I just spoke with Jason Talley of Talley.tv and http://talley.tumblr.com/ about bartering his web development and hosting capabilities to be used for the creation of a website to host my blog in exchange for me working on his computers. I think it’s a great deal that we’d both benefit from. I’m very excited; thanks Jason!
So, I’m considering starting a “Human Right To Record Public Officials Day” event - (Name Pending)
The Letter That Came In The Mail
A few days ago, my parents in FL received a letter in the mail from the Trial Court of Massachusetts District Court Department, stating that I needed to be present in court in Greenfield, MA, alleging that I unlawfully wiretapped a member of the Greenfield Police Department on May 20, 2011. The charge is, as it is written in the letter, “WIRETAP, UNLAWFUL c272 §99(C)(1)”, which is a felony in Massachusetts. The charge was filed on August 11, 2011. It is August 21, 2011 and I am just now receiving the letter today from my parents. The date of the arraignment is September 7, 2011.
I still do not know how Greenfield acquired my parents address back home; I can only speculate at this point.
The court has not stated how I have allegedly committed this offense, so I have nothing to go on at the moment, other than speculation. Now, why Greenfield, MA is trying this again after they failed to convict my friends Pete Eyre and Ademo Freeman for the same “offense”, I do not know. This could be to save face or to try and further make an example of one who tries to hold public officials accountable for their actions. I do not understand their motives as I do not yet know who I’ve apparently hurt in the matter.
I plan to post on this blog daily, covering my own personal encounters with this situation as well as other relevant cases. Stay tuned to this blog for updates.
