From deep within the Hammond inner-circle: the Hammonds WELCOME anyone and everyone who chooses to come and show their support for the family.
Everything following is from K: These people have been wronged - flagrantly. They do NOT deserve federal prison. They are set to enter prison by 4 January. See the post below for contact information if you decide to muster.
Let your conscience guide you. Evil is winning.
That is all.
OK, so the 4th came and went. Were these people picked up? I did some research on the US Attorney who is behind this thing, she is not so much an idealist as just plain nuts. The judge has a history with the ELF/ALF and the FBI "operation backfire" in the early 2000s. Attorneys are arguing that the terrorism statute applies, but it appears that early in the game, the judge(s) had decided that it does not apply. The terrorism charge on this is from what I can tell, a sentence enhancement, it is not a primary charge and did not become a primary charge until after the government had already won a conviction on the basis of it NOT being a primary charge. I could be wrong on that, but can research it a little more.ReplyDelete
