was of course upset when Walter Benedict was arrested. It shows
in my writing in this one page broadside I put out. Feeling an
obligation to him, because he was displaying and distributing
my newspaper [for free], and the principles of the Bill
of Rights involved in all of this, I guaranteed his bond of $500.
$50 cash at the time. Walter [who
was subsequently run out of the city] did not return for
his trial. I had to forfeit the $500 bond. On 3/19/02, of this
year, I had to write a check to A&C Bail Bonds [Run by Vince
Catalli-good guy-very accommodating.] for that amount ($500).
A warrant has been issued for Walter's arrest and his bond is
now set for $2000 if he returns [is returned] to Florida. Is
anybody out there as pissed off about all of this as I am? Can
anyone else see the irony of an American Abenaki Indian, standing
so firmly for his right to dress any freaking way he wants, while
engaged in a legitimate political protest, and giving away a
BANNED newspaper for free, AND THEN GETTING ARRESTED FOR; "Regulation
of street performers", on one of the nation's oldest public
Walter if you are anywhere
out there reading this I hope all is well - don't worry about
the money, its on me - best to you and thanks for your efforts!
Walter Benedict is
a real American hero! Register to vote! Spread the word! Get
rid of these loser judges! Read 'Operation
Take Back America'.
