Response to "Notice of fine" from Chalking 8

Six months after the June 4th, 2011 Chalking 8 incident outside Manchester Police Department I was found “guilty” of a violation and told I owed $248.

Rather than pay the ransom I submitted a letter indicating that I’d sit the time.

In this video I read the text of the letter in the hope that it causes people to think about how deeply flawed is the criminal “justice” system. It’s not something that can be “fixed,” the whole structure must be changed.

Rather than allow for a group of people to exercise an exclusive monopoly on the provision of any good or service recognize that a certain title or costume doesn’t grant extra rights. Then act accordingly, so we can more quickly live in a world where individuals are responsible for their actions, regardless of where they work.

    Much respect, Pete.

    The “court” is a private company. Check here:

    “Judiciary Courts Of The State Of New Hampshire in Manchester, NH is a private company categorized under Courts. Our records show it was established in and incorporated in New Hampshire.”

    Why contract with them?

    Congratulations Pete for drawing attention to our disgusting criminal justice system! In my 52 years, justice is something that I have ever seen happen in this criminal system. It is consistently just the opposite.

    Getting rid of the monopoly in the only real answer. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. We see this proven out on a daily basis.

    I think this may be relevant, especially to those that call themselves Christians:

    Christians need to be responsible for their government.

    the police and subsequently the court enforcing the legimate laws of new Hampshire (or just ”the shire” as some put it) is the right thing. You thinking that it’s the wrong thing is just…well it’s just you thinking it’s wrong.

    As I have said elsewhere on this site, you can ‘revoke your consent to be governed all you like. You are still going to be subject to the laws that exist around you.

    And like I posted about Ademo, you seek accountability, well you have found it. Hope it’s as sweet to you as it to us.

    Pete I see you still think accountability is jack booted thugs, beating anyone they want to at any time to within an inch of their lives and to be patted on the back for doing so.

    This sounds like some type of mental disorder, though I am not familiar enough with the DSM to put a name to it.

    Hey Guy,
    I wish I had as much time as you to sit around and bitch about a parking ticket. Unfortunately I have to work to pay taxes to fund cop budgets to chase your dumbass around. Thanks for the help and I am glad my hard earned tax money is spend corralling your stupidity. You look like your about 30, why don’t you get a job and start a real life. Bet your parents are super proud and follow your blogs everyday….

    I agree with you 100% that your tax money should not be used to chase people around for “crimes” with no victims. It’s a waste of resources that could and should be better spent on violent crimes with victims.

    As for Pete getting a job and starting a “real life,” I can say that he has a real job and is great at it – his life is as real as it gets. He doesn’t take any government assistance and accepts responsibility for his actions. Very few people are that principled. Most take some sort of government hand-out and even more want to blame others for their problems. So, what does it matter what he does for a living? He provides for himself and lives a responsible, productive life. I wish there were thousands more like him. As for his parents, they are quite proud of him and do follow his blogs.

    Your frustrations are misdirected; you should be criticizing government and law enforcement. If they hadn’t created a dependency class and didn’t spend their time and resources on victimless crimes, they might be stealing fewer tax dollars from you.

    Pete’s a doucebag
