And this important news also:
Liberty in Liberty County!
On October 31, 2013, Sheriff Nick Finch won his case at trial in Liberty County, Florida. The charges were complete nonsense to begin with, and the laughter in the courtroom was difficult to suppress as the prosecution presented its flimsy, farcical case.
Sheriff Finch was charged and arrested and booked into his own jail last June. Sheriff Finch had done something nearly unheard of, yet noble and courageous. He nullified the arrest of a law abiding citizen who had the audacity of carrying a gun in his pocket. Sheriff Finch said "not on my watch." So the State moved in, arrested the Sheriff and re-arrested the citizen, Mr. Parish.
The end result was Finch was removed from office and went to trial. Mr. Parish once again had the charges dropped, but he was ordered to perform 50 hours of community service and pay $200.
Let's be very clear here: Neither man was guilty of anything!
There were no victims and no evidence that a crime had ever
occurred. Today, a jury consisting of six Liberty County
citizens nullified the charges against Sheriff Finch and
told the State officials who brought this case to trial
that they were having none of their shenanigans. Sheriff
Finch was reinstated as Sheriff just 15 minutes later.
Defense Distributed Reaches 50% of its Dark Wallet Fundraising Goal on Day 1
Yesterday, DD returned to indiegogo to launch a campaign for the collaborative development of Bitcoin's Dark Wallet, teased last month in The New Yorker. The project was covered yesterday in Forbes and the Financial Times. Within 24 hours we raised 25k USD in combined donations; half of our 45 day goal.
Thank you for your interest in tending the fires of Liberty. We
believe there is a huge demand for crypto-anarchic projects after
Snowden, and have been blown away by the response.
So... now bullet makers will have to import lead, which will be a "controled substance" and subject to high tarrifs and/or bans?
