For millennia people have beaten drums, rung bells, and lit bonfires on the Winter Solstice to frighten away the darkness. Maricopa County, Arizona has been suffering from a darkness in which the evil of tyranny thrives; in a 21st Century revisitation of ancient traditions, The Lawyers Of Maricopa County Announce A December 21st Rally against Maricopa County Attorney Andy Thomas (Miami criminal-defense lawyer Brian Tannebaum):
On December 21, 1946, the United States Supreme Court reversed the conviction of Irene Morgan for refusing to give up her seat on a bus in violation of Virginia’s segregation law. This is just one example of the courage of one person standing up against power wielded with evil, unjust, and self-serving intent. I personally do not plan on sitting down any more in the face of this incompetent, thin thinking, petty little tyrant. On Monday, December 21, 2009, at 12:15 p.m., I would like to rally as many people as we can to the patio in front of the Central Court Building to protest the illegitimate, despicable, and cowardly actions of Andy Thomas and to demand that he be suspended from the State Bar of Arizona. Please circulate this email to as many people as you see fit.
(I am not the author of the e-mail but I am passing this on and I will be there. I wanted to let those of you who have written to me about your sympathies for our troubles here in Maricopa County that we are not sitting around anymore.)
