The Empire Strikes Back.


Kidnapping: whoever confines or removes from one place to another, any person without the person's consent, is guilty of kidnapping and may be sentenced to imprisonment for not more than 20 years or to payment of a fine of not more than $35,000, or both - Minnesota Code 609.25

Imagine if this was you!

Three people enjoying a bicycle ride through the park had a video camera with them and were able to capture the police storm troopers closing in around them; Kyle Keyser and his friends, Haydee and Justin.

It did not matter if you were a protester, journalist, or taking a walk through the park, all people were ordered to the ground and arrested. The people were zip tied and held in long lines of hundreds, waiting to be taken away. The people were, processed, fingerprinted, and thrown in jail and the police placed a ransom on them, charging the people with "Unlawful Assembly." Image of Ransom Charge

The U.S. Constitution states, Congress shall make no law abridging the right of the people peaceably to assemble.

This outright abuse of the supreme law of the United States, liberty and justice, occurred in the middle of the USA, in Saint Paul Minnesota, next to the Mississippi river - half a mile away from the Republican National Convention (RNC).

Those responsible:

St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman (651.266.8510)
Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher (651.266.9333)
County Chief Judge Gearin (651.266.8266)
St. Paul City Attorney John Choi (651.266.8710)
Ramsey County Attorney Susan Gaertner (651.266.3222, RCA@co.ramsey.mn.us)
Governor Tim Pawlenty (651.296.3391, tim.pawlenty@state.mn.us
St. Paul Chief of Police John Harrington (651.266.5588, john.harrington@ci.st.paul.mn.us)

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

- Thomas Jefferson, author of the United States Declaration (July 4, 1776), third President of the United States of America.

Apparently we are at the point where there is very little choice left, but to begin watering the tree of liberty with the blood of tyrants.
