The “State” of NH v. Peter Eyre

UPDATE 2011.11.13
The memo submitted by Greg Muller per William Lyon’s advisement is now uploaded. So too is the raw footage from court (*it’s currently processing but should be viewable shortly). Special thanks to our friends at FreeKeene for hosting the video on their YouTube channel.
———————————

Some men with guns allege that on June 4th when at a pro-police accountability rally outside the Manchester Police Department I was “disorderly.” Twice in fact. Failure to appear as they ordered (on Oct. 24th to Manchester District Court) would cause more men with guns “just following orders” to kidnap and levy against me additional threats.

I went to clear my name.

In total “the State” (acting through prosecutor Greg Muller) called three people – John Patti, Dana Langton and Thomas Gonzales. After questions posed by Muller and myself, and some follow-up by William Lyons who oversaw the proceeding, about 2 1/2hours had passed.

I don’t pretend to know all the ins and outs of these processes – no one can, they’re so arbitrary. But I know I don’t need to go to school for three years to learn how to tell the truth. Or for that matter, what’s right and wrong.

I’ve already sent to Lyons the requested memo (below). And ultimately, I know I did no harm to person or property on June 4th, so whatever happens, I can hold my head high.
