    he is no political prisoner, he is no different than anyone else wrapped up in our flawed legal system.  And the incident you’re speaking of is his first arrest.

    Dang, how about these numbers-> -8.00,-7.38 Does this make me the reincarnation of Gandhi?

      That's the second arrest.

      The initial arrest was for felony wiretapping. That's where the political angle comes in.

      He was trying to get "on the record" information from the person who won the election that was in question because of questionable ballot handling, using a tape recorder, with permission, placed in the open during the interview. That person happens to be not only the mayor, but the police commissioner.

      The arrest above was in a subsequent public hearing in which he was supposed to present evidence related to the questionable ballots.

      The 3rd arrest was for going to the police station and trying to file a complaint against an officer who accessed his bank records illegally and without cause.

      The last (4th) arrest was deserved, but since it was a misdemeanor and the complainant doesn't want to file charges, it's not on its own worthy of being held without bond.

      You don't need to protect me from someone else's spelling, grammar, extra posts on a topic, or use of quotations.
