Judge rules Denver Police harassment was not in contempt of injunction, but he doesn’t know the four fifths of it.


DENVER, COLORADO- US District Court Judge William Martinez found action taken by the Denver Police Department against an Occupy Denver protest to be NOT IN CONTEMPT of his federal injunction to halt arrests of Jury Nullification pamphleteers, although the judge based his ruling on only the first DPD raid, not the four next raids that happened in the interim. Obviously justice system reform needs JUDGE NULLIFICATION literature for jurists whose purview is hindered by purposefully limited scope. Judge Martinez heard only about the DPD confiscating a canopy, he wasn’t allowed to consider the eviction of our tents which included four arrests, the second seizure of our canopy, the loss of another tent with two more arrests, and the raid on three more tents, pictured above. The police based their actions on the activists lacking a permit from the Denver Manager of Public Works although no such permit exists beside which that manager’s authority doesn’t extend to the Lindsey Flanigan Plaza. Judge Martinez wasn’t informed of any of that.

  1. Great article, Eric. David wanted to take a copy with him to visit Caryn yesterday, but he can’t take in photocopies of anything. I am just writing her a letter, so I included a lot of your comments in it so she can see that we (or you,mostly) are working to help her receive some justice. Janet and I also plan to go see her this week. I’ll ask her to take Mark off her visitors’ list since he doesn’t have a car and only one visitor is allowed per day so that Darren can be added. See you Friday.
