In protest of 1st Amendment impingement, I will turn myself in at 9 a.m., Wednesday April 25 to the Fairfax Police Department for a $5000 bench warrant stemming from the legal signature "LOVE HEALS" being signed on a fix it ticket in El Dorado County.
The bench warrant was issued April 5 by El Dorado County in response to my legal signature of "LOVE HEALS" on a fix it ticket, which was returned for not having affixed the proper current year stickers to the car's plates. I wrote and called the offices (twice each) of El Dorado County D.A. Vern Pierson, informing them and providing proof of legal signature and received no response, other than a failure to appear and a $5000 bench warrant.
This is a basic judicial impingement of my 1st Amendment free speech and expression, and a waste of the judicial system. There is a big difference between a name, and a signature, and in fact, most people's signatures are not decipherable as a name. Upon calling the Fairfax Police Department (Sgt. OCallahan and Chief Morrin), I was informed that the warrant includes extradition, so I may be transferred to El Dorado County/Placerville at taxpayer expense. What a waste of time and money. I refuse to be bullied by an overzealous judicial system. If my county is better served by putting me behind bars and feeding me low quality food, then it is time to change our country.
