I'm on my way to Jail? What a lack of 1st Amendment rights & a waste of taxpayer $.

Sierra Salin of Fairfax will turn himself in at 9am, Wed 4/25 for a $5000 Bench Warrant stemming from the legal signature, "LOVE HEALS" being signed on a fix it ticket in El Dorado County.

In Protest of 1st Amendment Impingement, Sierra Salin of Fairfax will turn himself in at 9 a.m., Wed. 4/25 at 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.

Sierra Salin, of Fairfax, will be turning himself in for a bench warrant issued 4/5 by El Dorado County in response to his 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.  Sierra has written and called the offices (twice each) of El Dorado County D.A. Vern Pierson http://www.co.el-dorado.ca.us/ELDODA/  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.

Wed. April 25
9 a.m.
Fairfax Police Department
144 Bolinas Road
Fairfax, Ca. 94930

Fighting the system? No, you are just annoying the PoPo. As I tell my Occupy brothers and sisters, "The Police are not your friends but don't make them your enemy." All you are doing is fighting with the drones when you should be fighting the ill conceived laws.

To each their own Thaddeus. You can act and live as you see fit, and follow your own inspiration, as can I, and who are you to tell me what my motives are, or what the effects will be? You know me not, and assume much. Who is to say which one of us is more of a fool, and which kind? I am making my point, and sticking to my own integrity, whether or not anyone else understands or agrees, is not really the point, and I will not be bullied. Thank you for filling me in with how you think it is, and how it should be, etc, and you are being no different than the D.A. or prosecutor, if you can not allow me to just be myself. And I do disagree with you. The police are our friends, as much as everyone else is. It is ALL just us. There are people who I may not agree with or like very much at any specific time, and we can ALL be real jerks at various times, and no one is my "enemy." Fear, greed, hunger, ignorance, these are the things to work at changing, and we all cause unintended consequences, regardless of our intentions, plans, or inspirations. How do we not let our anger and frustration get the better of us at all the inequalities, and how do we forgive each other, constantly, for all of our shortcomings, and work towards peace? None of us are who we were yesterday, or who we will be tomorrow, and we WILL see. What are we choosing now? Laws, rules, daily life, are only how they are because it is what all of us "drones" accept and go along with.

I am not fighting with the system, I am challenging it, and dealing with it on my own temrs, and bringing some light(ness) to a rather humorless and stiff form.

I dont see any lightness, I see boring and cliche.

Well help yourself baba. Roll over and jump as whoever wishes. Me I just go along with the herd, and do what I'm told. Sorry to rattle your sensibilities, and thank you so much for the creative constructive positiveness. I see that you are a master yourself.
