SAR Ignores Dismissal of Illegal Arrest of Jeffrey Marcus Gray: Why?

Sixteen (16) days after all bogus trespass charges were dismissed against Jefrrey Marcus Gray for picketing on a public sidewalk with a sign saying "First Amendment Is Not a Crime," and "Photography Is Not a Crime," there's still nothing in the St. Augustine Record about it.

Why?

Is the St. Augustine Record is in bed with Sheriff DAVID SHOAR and his henchmen? Does it lack decent respect for First and Ninth Amendment values?

Read my e-mail to St. Augustine Record owners and controllers, some of whom may not want you to know about official oppression in St. Augustine and St. Johns County.

What do you reckon?

Subject: Here's the "Smoking Gun!" -- Irrefragable First Amendment violations by Sheriff DAVID SHOAR and School Superintendent JOYNER et al. Aimed at Journalist-Activist Jeffrey Marcus Gray

Dear Ms. Fogel, Messrs. May, Morris, Richardson, Sutton, Korfhage, Keever, Martin and Ms. Gardner:
1. When is The St. Augustine Record finally going to do its job as a First Amendment watchdog -- without fear or favor -- and prominently report on our State's Attorney's righteous 4/25 dismissal of all of the wrongful criminal "trespass" charges brought against Jeffrey Marcus Gray, in violation of the First Amendment?
2. Does Morris Communications support the First and Ninth Amendments, or not?
3. Does Morris Communications oppose police state tactics by our Sheriff and School Superintendent and other examples of official oppression in our community, or not?
4. Mr. Gray is the only person ever to receive a trespass warning in the entire history of F.S. 810.0975, enacted in 2002, 1/7 of a century ago. See below.
5. What does that tell you?
6. Does being Sheriff mean "never having to say you're sorry?"
7. Does being The St. Augustine Record mean reckless, feckless, fawning obeisance to a corrupt political machine and doctrinaire adherence to President Ronald Reagan's "Eleventh Commandment" ("Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican")?
8. As RFK once wrote to Senator James O. Eastland, "repent now, there's still time."
Please call to discuss.
Thank you.
With kindest regards, I am
Sincerely yours,

There’s no log. Warnings given Mr Gray are the only ones the SJCSD has issued under 810.0975.

By school safety law, I assume you are referring to the school safety zone statute, 810.0975 ? pls confirm.

This guy is a parasite filing frivolous lawsuits in order to gain cash money settlements. Waste of human excrement.

Who are you? And who are you to judge? Jeff Gray performs a valuable public service. Like NAACP testers filing lawsuits on housing discrimination, Jeff uncovers the evil that otherwise would not be detected. So who are you, and why do you hate Jeff? Are you ex-Judge ROBERT KEITH MATHIS?
