More Protesters Laying Down In The Road In Durham

On December 10th and 13th, more protesters were arrested for their “die in” activities in Durham. Most of the charges were resisting arrest, failure to disperse and “impede traffic – sit/stand/lie”. While protesting, the familiar Occupy chant, “whose streets? our streets!” was employed.

The list of arrests from the 10th, where protesters blocked traffic at the Streets at Southpoint, includes one protester arrested for attempting to incite a riot. On the 13th, one charge was for carrying a concealed weapon.

The list, via WNCN:

Occupy Monday Arrestees Leave Court Bill In Laps Of Taxpayers

Occupy Monday’s “Civil Disobedience” is a joke on NC taxpayers. This week, a Judge dismissed trespassing charges for 5 of the occupiers. Who bears the police and court costs? The taxpayer.

Apparently, law enforcement will have to tell each and every person who protests they need to disperse. Bear in mind, these protesters volunteered to be arrested.

14 Occupy Monday Arrestees Get Plea Deals

Occupy Monday protesters got a sweet deal:

The protestors pleaded guilty in exchange for serving 25 hours of community service. The charges will also be wiped from their records. – ABC 11, July 11 2014

Protest, get arrested, get 25 hours of community service and have your record wiped so you can do it again. Pretty sweet. The ABC story doesn’t state the exact date of the original arrests, it just says “May”. There was only one Moral Monday in May. So that begs the question are the 5 Occupy Monday arrestees who have prior records in this bunch included, given that some had priors? Continue reading

7 More Get A Free Ride

Seven more Moral Monday protesters has been acquitted. The costly and stupid parade continues along with more theatrics. Look at this stunt below, attempting to call Tillis and Berger as witnesses.

RALEIGH — An attorney representing protesters arrested at the N.C. Legislative Building in June, attempted to call the leaders of both General Assembly chambers on Wednesday as witnesses in the trial of seven people.

John McWilliam, a Raleigh attorney representing some of the demonstrators arrested June 12, said he issued subpoenas for N.C. House Speaker Thom Tillis and Senate President Phil Berger to find out more about the enforcement of the building rules his clients had been accused of violating.

It’s a McClatchy article, so of course there is no mention whatsoever that the people arrested went to the legislature building fully intending to be arrested and that they volunteered to do so. Now taxpayers are on the hook for the police, overtime and court time. That’s Money Monday for you — bilking the taxpayer to fund their BlueprintNC gripe parade. Continue reading

SHOCKER: Volunteer Arrestee Found Guilty

Moral Monday Leader Reverend Barber was found guilty of trespassing and violating building rules. The judge threw out some of the cases, it’s unclear if she was acting as defense council or judge.

WRAL:

Raleigh, N.C. — A Wake County judge on Wednesday found a group of people arrested in April during the first of what became months of weekly protests at the Legislative Building guilty of trespassing and violating building rules.

District Judge Joy Hamilton said that, although she finds some of the rules governing public access to the Legislative Building to be “vague, overbroad and confusing,” state NAACP President Rev. William Barber and 11 others acted in concert to disrupt lawmakers.

Earlier Wednesday, Hamilton said there was insufficient evidence that the 12 protesters posed a threat, so she tossed out the charge of failure to disperse against all of them.

Let’s repeat that: The rules were “vague”. Continue reading

#MoralMonday: Transparency Fail by Wake Sheriff, Courts

I’ve been tracking the arrests at Moral Monday for the last month and had no problem accessing the once public records of the arrests, that is up until last week. The Wake County Sheriff site has stopped making the records of these arrests public information.

Transparency!

Huge hat tip to Civitas:

Let’s say you’re an ordinary citizen and you trespass on someone’s property. You come back the next day anyway. You get arrested again, and this time you’re charged with contempt. Wait – what’s that? You’re the Rev. William Barber? Never mind. Please, come inside. Continue reading
