Re: Notice to Appear on Citation #315700

Dear Ms. Liskamm:

    I have received your letter of August 12, 2011; the Notice Before Arrest of September 9, 2011, with no legible signature; and the Arrest Warrant issued by Judge Robert N. Block of September 14, 2011.  I was arrested at the Santa Ana Federal Courthouse on April 14, 2011.  An unidentified police officer ordered me to stop distributing pamphlets on federal property as required by U. S. Regulation 41 CFR 102-74.415(c) What is the policy for posting and distributing materials?  I refused to comply and was arrested.

    I was not cited for violation of 41 CFR 102-74.415(c) because it is a violation of Amendment I of the U. S.  Constitution.  I have distributed the same literature 62 times at 38 different U. S. District Courthouses.  I have been arrested 13 times at 3 other courthouses for violating 41 CFR 102-74.415(c).  Eleven of these arrests occurred at the U. S. District Courthouse in Manhattan, NY, and once each at the Newark, NJ and Springfield, MA District Courthouses.  The U. S. Attorneys have dismissed the charges at all 3 courthouses.

    The police officer in Santa Ana did not charge me with a violation of 41 CFR 102-74.415(c) because it is unconstitutional and unenforceable.  He only charged me with §102-74.385   What is the policy concerning conformity with official signs and directions? which states:

“Persons in and on property must at all times comply with official signs of a prohibitory, regulatory or directory nature and with the lawful direction of Federal police officers and other authorized individuals.”

Since his order was to cease distributing literature, it was an unlawful order.  I am only obligated to obey lawful directions of police.  Therefore I refused to comply.  His arrest was unlawful and must be ignored.

    I consider this case to be closed.  Yours in freedom and justice.

Sincerely yours,
