Free Cameron D'Ambrosio
Cameron D'Ambrosiois a Methuen 18 year-old high school student who made a rap song that the kids around town didn't like and was charged with inciting terrorism. They picked him up not that long after the Boston Bombing, but found no weapons or bomb making materials. They seized his family’s only computer for analysis, but after 30 + days they haven’t gotten around to it. Maybe if they spent less money on street tanks and body armor and outfitting SWAT teams, they would have the money to hire what they seem to think are the the required analysts. He is being held without bail. On June 3rd the prosecution was granted a delay for the probable cause hearing. He was sent back to jail until his next PC hearing date, Thursday, June 27th. We need to pack the courtroom with QUIET and RESPECTFUL supporters. (The crowd on the 3rd was a bit rowdy.) If you can get to Lawrence district court on that date please come appropriately attired. Court is in session at 9 am, but people who came late on the 3rd didn’t miss much. His hearing was finally called around 11:30.
We should call for all charges to be dropped and endorse his freedom say stupid or “offensive” things. Here is the Facebook event.
Conferences tend to take a lot of our time. We need to be finding and preparing candidates for 2014. Having a cryptocurrency conference in Sept. will likely be a distraction from our election plans in 2014 and getting our platform finalized. Jokeefe suggests cancelling it.
