On July 30thA WCCCD police officer charged me with trespassing in order to cover for her politically motivated attack in which I suffered serious injuries (mostly from being tortured with handcuffs). This happened at my place of work right after I got done teaching a class.
On January 15th my attorney made a straight-forward motion to dismiss the trespassing charge. Thirty sixth district Judge Roberta Archer denied the common sense motion, and we are appealing the ruling. There is one big problem. The appeal will cost $1000 and I have no money to pay for it. I am hoping some people who have supported my political efforts in the past, will be able to help me pay for the consequences of those efforts. Even if you donít share my politics, I appeal to your broader sense of a need for fairness and justice in the legal system.
This charge is designed to intimidate myself and others who are fighting for fair elections and the rule of law in Detroit. It is also a cynical tactic that, if successful, could be used to immunize other rogue police from accountability in the future.

All set for now
