CONTEMPT FOR THIS COURT
Protests and arrests at the Hancock drone base in Syracuse, New York have been steady for the past couple of years. So many have been arrested that the trials are backed-up like five o'clock traffic in Los Angeles.
Off to court this morning in Syracuse for my sister Mary Anne's trial. She was arrested 2/13/13 as she walked away from Hancock Airfield after taking pictures of the Ash Wednesday action at the main gate of the base were 8 of us stood with signs calling a halt to the war crimes being perpetrated from the base. She is having a jury trial. Her charge is contempt of court for violating the order of protection. If found guilty she is facing a year in jail.
Guilty of contempt for violating the order of protection! Not guilty of disorderly conduct. Sentencing date has been set for July 10th.Having sat through this process at this point I have nothing but contempt for this court and their continued protection of this Empire's war on the world.
