Update on Milwaukee Trial
Both charges brought against me by the City of Milwaukee were dropped in
Court today! They stemmed from my ministry outside the Summit Abortion
center last September 23rd. Although the police officer showed up, the
City Attorney realized that he couldn't convict me on either charge of
Obstructing the Issuance of a Citation (a city ordinance), or Disorderly
Conduct. My thanks to the three brethren in the courtroom with me:
Attorney James Donohoo, who represented me pro bono (for no fee), Lois
Knight, who showed up as a witness for me on less than two hours notice,
and Bill "whistle blower" Currier, who has helped me to understand court
procedure and paperwork. Due to the repeated abuse of pro-lifers by
police officers in Milwaukee, Mr. Donohoo is ready and motivated to bring
a lawsuit against the City. I see it as necessary discipline for a
proud, arrogant child.
I placed an order for yard signs today. On the signs, I'm using a symbol
of an angel and a star. The Christmas decorations on the main downtown
street in Appleton, are angels with trumpets and stars. I'm playing off
that, and the fact that I have the name of an angel. It might help
people remember it.
I need to print some campaign literature soon. I plan to take it door to
door every Saturday until the election. If you're in the area and would
like to help distribute my flyer, please let me know.
