    Thanks. Hopefully by the end of the year you think we hit the ground at a full sprint. [grin]

    Now it is time for some letter writing from Lowell residents to their local newspapers about how the city is spending money on cases like this...

    Given the current demographics of the City of Lowell, it is highly unlikely the the majority of the population can write a letter, much less in English ! [grin]

    No. There was supposed to be a hearing but it didn't happen.

    Until something happens, we will have nothing else to say. I know it's frustrating but that's how it has to be.

    Criminal cases take years to clear. We have another guy we started working with in Aug 2010 and we are still waiting for his trial. This is what's it's like.

    So much for that old ruse of "A right to a fair and speedy trial". This is crazy.

    You need the special "Doink Doink" button, but it's not AG approved, good luck finding one.

    Delays come from various sources and the choice for a speedy trial is the defense's, not the states.

    Still Pending. I can't stress this enough, criminal cases take a VERY LONG time to clear when you are doing it right.

    Just received an email from Stan that the case has been closed. No details other than that. I know the stress he went through as I saw a lot of it first hand and knew through others much of what he went through. I am very glad this ordeal is over for him. I can only hope that it's closed and his RIGHTS have been restored. He is a really good person and has a wonderful family. They did not deserve to go through this. I saw this ordeal age him.

    Is that good for us? It seems often they drop cases they think they may loose, in order not to establish new case law, so that they can continue on terrorizing gun owners... Drag the poor guy throu court, run up thousands in legal fees. Whoops we may loose? Okay let's drop it and do the same to someone less funded so we get our way...

    Infuriating.

    Infuriating not that this is now behind him (and I hope it *all* is truly behind him) but that he was made to go though this in the first place. It's an abject lesson in how the system can arbitrarily punish a person because the powers that be don't like what he's doing, legal or not. Further, those who initiated this have no consequences while Stan has had very real consequences even though he did nothing wrong.

    I'm disgusted.

    That's certainly a reasonable observation.

    Donation mailed today on top of the monthly donations. I lived in Lowell for way too long. Glad I got out of that hole when I did.

    Edit: totally thought this was a new thread don't know how I missed it. oh well, keep the donation and keep fighting the good fight on another front.

    It will be interesting to see what Comm2A has to say about this news. I hope his ordeal is over, to his satisfaction as much as that is possible.
    I dare not what I'd like to say about this entire situation. [angry]
    Best regards.
