FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOP Denies Craig Cesal Insulin
Terre Haute, IN ( February 12, 2020)- Craig Cesal serving life without parole for a non violent cannabis charge shared a message today stating that “Once again Guard Goodwin and Lt. Putoff said I cannot have insulin because I am pursuing legal action against the BOP.” Denying Craig insulin to treat his diabetes as prescribed is a blatant violation of the BOP’s own clinical guidelines regarding diabetes. https://www.bop.gov/resources/pdfs/201703_diabetes.pdf
Craig has requested that we email and call the Warden and the Regional office. When emailing or calling please include Craig’s inmate number #52948 and politely explain your concerns about Craig not receiving adequate medical care.

Fellow Freedom Fighters,
I want to go over the process of advocating in court support capacity in order to aide a person being treated unjustly. These are all important things to consider when advocating for Jury Nullification or for a Defendant. Effective Court Support Guidelines & Etiquette can be found at Court Support Guidelines - The Human Solution International, these are excellent rules for the day of court and should be followed.
We recently had a couple of things unfold in which some court cases were mishandled. One of those by me. In Junction City Kansas we had a defendant that came from California, who drove out for his trial. On the first day of the trial the defendant gave a jury nullification card to a random stranger who turned out to be a juror. When the judge and DA were informed by the juror what they had received they revoked his bond. He was facing 10 years. This was my mistake because I didn’t tell him to never give a card out personally. Then during the trial the judge complained about facial expressions from members of the audience and threatened to close the courtroom.
At the end of the day they discussed, without jurors in the room, the bond forfeiture for jury tampering. Like my counterpart in the other case, things were handled poorly as I was livid because the judge and the prosecutor were talking about us, the Court Support, as if we were mobsters there to intimidate and scare the jury. I raised my hand in an attempt to explain this misunderstanding. I was removed from the courtroom and banned from the courthouse and my guy went to jail. Lucky for us the jury stood fast and hung, so that today Frank Crudo is a free man. However this is being retried on January 27th, so decorum is very important. Always be careful and respectful of someone’s life being in the balance.

Impressions, they can be good, they can be bad, they can be purposeful or detrimental. They can be gotten through research, through listening, through watching but most often the first, and lasting, impression is gotten at first interaction, without any prior knowledge of the subject making the impression. First impressions tend to be the one most folks remember the most, whether good or bad, and oftentimes there will be no other chance to change that first impression, or to improve upon it, thereby leaving the audience with perhaps a jaded impression of the subject that will remain beyond any other subsequent meetings. When the setting is a courtroom, the audience the judge, and the subjects leaving the impression, community supporters for the one being charged, then the first impression is most often the only one the judge may get, and may play a huge part in the decision about the future of the one on trial. This can be good or bad, purposeful or detrimental to the one whose’ future is at stake.
Court support is a great way to show support for someone going through a trial, and show the judge that there is support from the community for this person, but it can also be detrimental in the same ways when those showing up are unprepared to be in just such a setting. The courtroom is not a social gathering place where you are just hanging out with friends, and other supporters, where you just show up in your best cutoff shorts and ragged t-shirt and talk and smoke and carry on as if you have some right to do so. Being an activist means being loud and boisterous and outrageous sometimes, but never, ever in the courtroom or outside of it. There are courtroom support procedures that should be followed in order to create the best first impression possible to the judge in favor of the one being supported. These can be found at www.thsintl.org under Court Support Guidelines, which contains everything you need to know about being an asset rather than a detriment to the defendant from how to dress to how to behave around the jurors you may encounter in the courthouse and without. These guidelines have been developed through trial and error by those who have gone through their own trials and experienced the effect of those present for court support. There are also things to consider if you have interaction with the defendant prior to their trial which can potentially affect the outcome of their trial.
Court support can have a positive effect on the outcome of someone’s future, so please consider that it is someone’s life being decided, and that it could be your life on the line. By following these guidelines and presenting your best self in support of others you can be an effective part of a better outcome for the defendant, as well as leaving a positive impression on the judge who will most likely be deciding others’ fates in the future, maybe even your own.
