So I'm basically out of flyers.  You guys have some?

We have about 50 of the white ones with the column on the front and most of the shiny ones(somewhere) you gave Tony.

Planning on heading up to Grafton County Superior Court again in March.  Our FIJA brochures are copies of copies, still readable but fading a bit.   

Does anyone have any new and shiny copies, just a couple that we could use to make more legible ones from?   Much appreciated.  Reward of one bottle of home brew for delivery to the Man cave....oh alright, two.

With sufficient notice to me and COG on freekeene.com (and these days, a little cash contribution is a big help), we can print as many flyers as you need.

Thanks FL.  Is anyone else going besides you?  If not, I'll go - and I now have a bunch more brochures from Jason Talley.

Speaking of which, Kat: do you have any pictures of us doing FIJA outreach?  Jason is now working for FIJA national, updating their website with new content, and he would like to post photos and videos of people doing FIJA outreach.  If you have pics, you can send them to me or to him.

  I'm going, not sure if any last minute mancave additions will pop up and want to ride along with me.  I have a dual purpose for going.  The first is I've decided that  the FIJA events are activism I can "safely" do while I am on the short leash of the State.   The second is I need to file some papers with the court  Monday morning.  I intend to do these events every month until hell freezes over or I am physically unable to. 

I hope to have at least 65 FIJA brochures to hand out as that seems to be the number of prospective jurors we've seen the last few months.

They have only about 30 brochures.  FL couldn't get more made today.  Last hand out was about 65. Even if you didn't get there at exactly 7:45 which is when we shoot for and came late with brochures that help get brochures into all of the prospective jurors hands.

I can print up about 500 of the new "True and False" brochures.  Also, on the back of the brochure is a place for contact information.  Who's contact info needs to be put there?  I can take care of that as well.  Then, where do I send the brochures?  If someone can let me know, I'll see what I can do to help.  Thanks. 8)

 That sounds like a great idea Scott.  Thanks.  Are the brochures the "True or False"  kind written in  bold letters on the front?   I'm not sure about the contact info. yet, but  we should be able to answer that question in a day or two.   

If somebody gets you the info. by the end of this week when would the brochures be completed ?   Should they be picked up or will an address to mail them to be needed?  Do you need any help with $$  to cover costs?  I can kick in a silver round if needed...

The FIJA outreach was a success yesterday, except that we ran out as the last of the stragglers were coming in. One thing that I did differently was I walked right into the lobby where about three prospective jurors had arrived before us and handed them brochures there. I was in and out within a minute.

 Mr. Lloyd will be accompanying me this month, rumor has it we will be surveying prospective new FIJA sign locations nearer to the courthouse. 

Looking ahead I may not be able to do the one in August...it may be considered a conflict of interest by my oppressors.  I will look into the legal crystal ball, throw some bones and dice on the ground, mutter some incantations and see what the signs tell me.     :icon_pirat:

Yesterday M.T. Porcupine and I put another 60 or so fija brochures in prospective jurors hands. I'll admit , we're getting the hang of this. We  congratulated ourselves very well with a couple of self administered pats on the back most of the circuitous way home and agreed to a "here's to us beer toast" when our arms had recovered from all the bending.  Does anyone have any idea how hard it really is to pat yourself on the back?  ;D

 I'm doing the FIJA thing again this month.  I  hope it's next monday, cuz that's when I'm heading up.   
Any of the customary characters that might be riding shotgun with me should note the bus back to Grafton may be slightly delayed.
There's a possibility I may check with land owners close to the courthouse to ask  if we can put permanent  FIJA billboard type signs up.  I have one guy I've almost convinced to let us do it, the irony is HE spent a year in jail for a victimless crime so he's worth another stop.
 So who's buying the coffee, if I drive?

A news update from this past monday.   

We have a location, just south of the Court House where we've been granted permission to place a billboard type FIJA sign.  We're working on getting a site just north of the courthouse and on several other well traveled roads that prospective jurors might be traveling on to provide "justice" to their peers. 

 We now return you to our regularly scheduled program.

Good to know, thanks Kat.  Won't need them for tomorrow, but I might want to bring some to Anton Lee when we do Belknap County FIJA outreach.

 Tomorrow  early A.M.  , MT Porcupine and I will be heading up for the monthly Grafton County FIJA distribution.   We're getting to be pretty good at picking out the Bureaucrats that "work" there from the Jurors.   Some even say good morning to us and sound like they mean it.  Some still look the other way and don't respond to our cheerful morning salutations.  The nerve of us to say "good morning" to them and spoil their day.

Thanks to Lloyd and MT Porcupine for getting it done yesterday. There were at least 2 juries selected yesterday, quite probably more, that involved "victimless crimes" at Grafton County Superior Court. 

Rumor has it 5 or 6 sign holder type people may be needed to raise  juror awareness on August 30th of this year.   I bet the defendant would really appreciate it.

It's possible a ride can be provided to and from the Grafton (town) area.

I will be handing out jury nullification info this coming Tuesday.

As many of you know I am on bail for the alleged felony crime of "manufacturing" a plant.  The prosecutor has filed a motion to amend my bail conditions and limit my right to hand out jury info.  , but I'll be there anyway excercising my right of free speech.

Funny thing is bail is to ensure people SHOW UP at court. Me? I guess I'm the first one on bail they're trying to PREVENT from showing up. 

This same prosecutor can often be found outside the court house puffing on a carcinogenic plant, tobacco.  I wonder if that plant is on their schedule of controlled drugs?  Nobody would know, since the Commissioner hasn't ever published the schedule like their law says he's supposed to.  Imagine that, a bureaucrat breaking the law he's supposed to administer.  More on that later.

Anyhow I believe this will be filmed and I will be peaceful as always.  I hope they leave their attitudes and guns out of this, we'll see.

Free speech anyone?

Well, scratch my  post from earlier today.  I just called the Court House and was informed there will be no jury selection at Grafton County Superior Court in September.  The October selection will be Oct. 4th.    Barring a meteor striking my house, or it being stolen by the government, I will be there
October 4th. 

Anton, we gots to get together before then, but if not, the address is 3785 Dartmouth College Highway N. Haverhill, NH.  That is waaaay up at tother end of the county from the town of Grafton.

...and yes I would be happy to show you the technique I lifted from Rich to get info. into jurors hands.  ;)

It's almost time for me to go and hand out brochures to prospective jurors again.  Maybe I will bum a cigarette from the person trying to prosecute me if she is outside blackening her  lungs. Some plants will kill you, but they are legal so they must be okay.  Of course I respect her right to kill herself, and would never put her in jail for choosing to own her body or smoking a plant.   

Just in case any "official types" are lurking, I have provided a list of harmful substances, just click the link and see for yourself.  Guess what is at the bottom of the list and what is at the top of the list?  Both are plant derivatives, both are often smoked.   

Putting people in jail and threatening to steal their house for smoking a plant while at the same time smoking a more harmful one yourself seems just a little contradictory to me.

Jury selection is usually the first monday of  the month.  Last month they didn't have any, so I may call them first to verify October is happening.

We usually leave G-Town by 6:15 am ish so we can get to the top of the county (N.Haverhill)  by 7:30 and do our evil deeds. You know like asking people to consider a moral position before they throw innocents to the lions.  Love some company if you want to go, we can make it happen.

We will be leaving  the mancave by 6:15 am  this monday, can you be there by 6:05 ish?      I plan to drive, but if 4 of us go, it might be a tight squeeze in one car as I am a formerly wide shouldered  guy melting into a jolly middle aged guy and you are a stout lad yourself.   I'd say you get shotgun by default...2 door Honda Civic.

Jason as well as Rich may go as we have a person up that way we may interview and video that was  recently vicitmized by the state.  Her story is very compelling and we intend to use it to further
liberty.  Fed's are trying to steal her house etc. , real shitty situation we will bring to light.

 If  you are on a schedule, maybe we can take two cars from the mancave?  If not going, let us know please,  otherwise see you monday morning at mancave.

Word on the street is that Rich will be driving solo since he has an appointment after the jury outreach.

Talley.TV (http://Talley.TV) would like to report on the jury outreach being done in Grafton County NH and I bet Anton could get some sweet shots for Shire Photography (http://ShirePhotography.com). It'll also assist in our learning jury outreach from a couple of pros.

Later that day, could we schedule some time with Patricia Smith? I'd like to talk to her more since she was recently found guilty of growing illegal plants and now has to spend two years in a cage. It's my understanding that Weeda Claus (http://WeedaClaus.com) may be in the neighborhood as well.

I'll be geared up and ready to go by 6AM. It should be a fun outing.

It's almost that time of the month again...I wonder if the plant smoking woman (tobacco) that wants to put me in a cage will acknowledge my existence as a peaceful human being this month or will she walk by me again pretending I do not exist as she has in previous months?

You see that particular woman "just doing her job" that has been assigned the task in Grafton County justice theater of putting my ass in jail (albeit with the assistance of a wide cast of others) likes to smoke her cigarettes outside the entrance to the courthouse where we conduct the monthly jury nullification outreach. 

Even though her plant smoking habit is deadly,  I don't want to keep her from  excercising her right of control over her own body.  That would be morally wrong.  I don't own her, she does.

I wonder why she grants herself rights she would deny others?  I wonder if she ever reads this thread or how she can sleep at night, knowing her hypocrisy is so blatant.  I guess some people can rationalize anything for a paycheck.  I wonder how she would feel if somebody put her in jail for smoking a cigarette, stole her lifes savings and her house over her choice of using a more dangerous plant than Cannabis?

  Being paid to enforce bad laws could give a person alot of stress though, not to mention battling the cognitive dissonance monster that any thinking human being would have to face in her shoes. 

I wonder how many innocent lives she has ruined and tried to rationalize her way around it in those quiet moments  every thinking person has?  She can't really be ignorant of the harm she particpates in, can she?

Montana jury "revolts" .  Refuses to convict on marijuana charge.

Sort of. The jury wasn't seated, because they couldn't find 12 people who would agree to convict for marijuana possession.

What's bizarre is that he and his attorney took a plea bargain on the felony charge of dealing, and agreed to suspending 19 years of a 20 year sentence. Every minute of this guy's life is going to be under scrutiny until that 19 years is up.

If I was the lawyer, I'd have forced them to seat a jury and take it to trial. If they had to search the whole county to find a dozen who would convict, it would show pretty clear evidence of jury maniupulation in favor of prosecution.

^^^ It's easy to speculate on what we might do in a  given situation, but we never really know the variables in another person's life that cause them to make their decisions.  The lawyer
may have  been in on the decision, but he gets to go home at night to his warm bed, regardless of the "lesser evil" the accused had to choose from .   

Jury Nullification awareness is still in it's infancy, for the accused to  have caught another "break" would have been nice, but it is far from a given.   I've driven many miles and stood in the cold to hand out fliers, hundreds, maybe thousands of them.  I'm an obvious supporter of Jury Nullification, yet I still don't think the level of awareness of the average juror is even close to be able to assume that a second stroke of "luck" would occur, maybe in Montana, but not in N.H. .  Although I sincerely hope to be proven wrong.  I don't mean to be sour or whiny but we have a long way to go to raise awareness in this state. Frankly we're not there yet, not enough has been done.

Also the accused had to weigh the potential vindictiveness of the prosecuter and judge  into his decision.  It's very likely he would have gotten spanked harder for the actions of the first set of jurors, people in positions of power have been known to be less than compassionate when somebody plays in their sandbox, no?

I'm pleased that potential jurors came through.  Heck I wouldn't be surprised if "somebody" printed out the article and it started showing up in public places, like court houses etc. (gee who would do THAT?) but IMHO it's too early to  rely on back to back nullification as likely.

Wouldn't it be great if there were road signs on popular routes to court houses telling people about FIJA and /or the jury's inherent right to nullify bad laws?

I'll help put the sign up. The emperor expressed interest in helping paint the sign. The website for NHJury.com is up but no one is producing content for it. What else needs to be done?


Also, if this does happen it would be a good episode of Talley.TV. But so far I've just witnessed a lot of discussion with little action.

A little more effort than typing.   ;D

Not sure who your comment is directed at... Jason puts a lot of work into his productions. I greatly appreciate his effort, especially seeing as I can't afford to do it anymore. Compelling video production is much more than owning a camera, it is at least a days labor, several thousand dollars worth of equipment and the hard earned ability to operate the tools.

Looks like I'll be doing both camera pointing and sign making. But I look forward to it since I came to Free Grafton be be an activist. I'll feel proud when I drive by a sign that I helped create.

Thanks for your kind words, Mr. Sawyer. Coming from a pro like yourself they are very much appreciated. The fact is, it's all a great deal of fun.

I guess MTPorcupine is going to need some FIJA action himself!  :o  IS Keene FIJA still happening?

It's likely that MT Porcupine's charges will initially be heard by a judge (no jury).  If he appeals it could be a jury thing.   I'm sure if he needs jury outreach, somebody will make sure it happens though.   ;)

Have you seen the recent case in Florida, where a judge banned distribution of FIJA pamphlets? He's obviously wrong, and will lose.

If there is anyone near Haverhill or just down 91 from there(West Leb,Hanover) and can get there by 8am, this might be a good time to attend with a video camera.
Some court recently claimed that this is jury tampering and the clowns at Grafton County Courthouse might be planning on trying arrests.

I doubt there will be any arrests at Grafton County, THIS month anyway.   They've seen us so much, we're  practically like family now.   ;D

But you never really know what they'll do in their efforts to protect and serve us. 

Later this month the outstanding motion to try to prevent me or any others from handing out flyers and to amend my bail conditions will be heard.  Things might get interesting for all concerned after that.   In the meantime I work on building my knowledge of big scary latin words and legalese terminology to mount a counter suit if that's what it takes.  I also keep excercising free speeech and handing out flyers.   ;)

Update - Last Tuesday reknowned jurOR (thanks John Connell) rights activists  Rich A. and Bob C. ventured back to Grafton County Superior Court and put brochures in the hands of most of the prospective jurors. Several of the court, state and county functionaries acknowledged their presence with replies to their hearty "good mornings" .  Apparently we have a high recogniton factor with the employees of this facility.   ;)

Next month the new brochures for NHJury.com should be available...stay tuned.

We're looking to update NHJury.com to include Grand Juror info.   So we are seeking help and hope to get the conversation started about the history, the laws, the things that should be changed, etc.


Speaking of ham sandwiches...Anybody ever serve on a Grand Jury?  Please let  us know about it.

Here is a clip from The Rockford Files about him being brought before the grand jury. It was a good episode and really shows the abusive system.
