Manchester PD & Bureaucrat Outreach

One does not remedy a problem by ignoring it, but by proactively addressing it.

Our problem: frivolous charges stemming from the Chalking 8 incident. Our solution: transparency and winning in the court of public opinion.

Last week I distributed our press release announcing our return to Manchester to the solicitors office (where Greg Muller, the person who is pursuing charges against me, Ademo and six others, works), the mayor’s office (to keep him in the loop about how taxpayer dollars are being wasted) and the police department (where John Pattie and colleagues, who kidnapped us back on June 4th, are employed).

I also sought to learn how to acquire “official” policies and information about our apparent chalk-inspired round-up but found that, despite I couldn’t get much more than “fill out this form” or “talk to that person” or an outright “nope.” Perhaps the “partnership” between the folks with badges and those without that police chief Dave Mara points to may not be tangible as claimed.

I’m still waiting for someone(s) employed at Manchester PD to do what they know is right and not remain silent about the treatment of the Chalking Eight. Who will be the first to act according to their conscience?
