arie did not grab
the inspector's wrist to knock devise out of his hand; she merely reached
towards it and was pounced on by Officer McConnel. She did not resist
arrest. Several Piecemakers pulled at her, Marie was like rag doll and never
opened her mouth.
n 1988 when we first started selling food,
the Health Department came with books full of codes which we tried to comply
with but each compliance met with another set of codes and/or another inspector's whims. Please see attached "Chronological Order"
and you'll see that we did try to comply and have always paid the permit fees sent to us by the health
s. Lindsay wants to punish Marie for her
Godly beliefs. Unfortunately, she has the power to do so. Marie, Doug
and Judy have a full grasp of their personal God given freedoms and Constitutional
rights and that is why they are willing to make a stand. No amount of jail
time will change their appreciation for their freedoms. Freedom is a right,
not a privilege.
one of the defendants have any prior records
or have caused any harm to the public or any individual, nor broken any law
that is Constitutional. Marie, Doug & Judy have not injured anyone.
No law is broken when no injury can be shown. There can be no loss or termination
of rights unless actual damage is proven.
arie is in poor health. Please note
the Doctor's letter that she is under his care for her heart and is in a weakened
condition. She has been home bedridden except for her court dates and
even then has had difficulty going to those.
lease take into consideration the nature
of the offense. We are serving our country by working diligently to
meet the needs of the community. If this be a crime so help us God and so
help our country. Always remember that a heavy fine on the innocent
rips the very fiber of our country. Small businesses like Piecemakers keep
your salary coming in. I feel you are too wise to bite off the very
hand that feeds you. The whole world is watching to see if America
is indeed the land of the free where justice reigns for all.
ur life is in God's hands. You can only
do to us what He allows.
