Targeted by Corrupt DA

On November 5, 2011, I was targeted and falsely arrested by Asheville Police Department (see video below), I was charged with 3 warrants, disorderly conduct, resisting a police officer, and impeding traffic.

As a Citizen Journalist, this is my video (different video from above) at the March that led to the false charges.

After 7 months and 5 court appearances, after I was found not guilty, so I filed a complaint with the Asheville Police Department.

Attached is the letter from the Asheville Police Department in response to the complaint I filed. My arrest is a cut and dried case of false imprisonment and malicious prosecution to silence my voice and deny me my Civil rights.

Why DA Ron Moore has not been arrested and held accountable for his actions disgusts me. I know of a few former drug runners of his had turned States evidence and of Federal indictments. How he continues to prosecute those who compete with his WNC empire of drugs, guns, and prostitution.

The County Commissioners illegally denied the funding of our public access station to silence the corruption that was being revealed on the TV shows (as seen here on my YouTube).

It is important that I file a Federal Civil Rights Law suit. This might be the only way to hold Ron Moore accountable for his actions. He physically pointed me out to his assistant in the elevator ride to my 1st court hearing that I was found guilty. My jury trial deliberation only took 10 mins to decide my innocence. Sargent Brown testified there was No Evidence for the resisting an officer or disorderly charge. I stood in front of County Commissioners and City Council pleading my innocence and would someone look into the false charges.

When I filed Pro Se for the trial deposition, the judge refused it because I had an attorney for my trial. When I went to Superior Court to get a copy of my file, I was told it was lost and could not be found. My attorney, Ben Scales stated in court how his representation of Occupy people had an adverse affect on his practice.
