BREAKING NEWS: Pro-Uber Driver Has Warrant Out for Arrest, May Miss 1st Child's Birth
This just in from Christopher David, FSP early mover and civil disobedience activist who has continued to drive for Uber in the City of Portsmouth, despite the city council's ban. You can read more about the background to his story here.
Portsmouth has a warrant out for my arrest.
Officer Andre Wassouf -- the police officer from THIS VIDEO -- called me two weeks ago to inform me that I may be guilty of a class B felony for posting this audio recording of the bouncer (even though I was on a public road, in my car, and he was on a public sidewalk with no expectation of privacy). Bouncer called the police about it, and Wassouf said he would check to see if the bouncer wanted to press charges; if so, he would call back when a warrant was done. Wassouf recently called again to inform me that he has completed my ARREST WARRANT. Wants me to turn myself in.
Here is what I have to say. I stayed up until 4am last night setting up for the home birth of my son. I am swamped with work and preparation up to my eyeballs, and Kayla could go into labor any minute.
My interest to participate in a POLICE WITCH-HUNT designed to MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF ME by charging me with a FELONY for a YOUTUBE VIDEO showcasing EFFECTIVE ACTIVISM, and potentially making me MISS THE BIRTH OF MY SON... is LESS than zero.
To the city of Portsmouth, I opt out of your system. Leave me alone.
To my friends, I would appreciate any help, and I am open to ideas. In the meantime, please SHARE the video in question. smile emoticon"
You have to wonder how many bouncers know about New Hampshire's dual consent wiretapping laws... Especially when recorded on a public way, in public, with no identifiable names or faces, only a voice. I wonder where the bouncer works during the day, or who his friends are...
