On Sunday, March 24, A US Army Counterintelligence agent was disarmed and arrested. From tdtnews.com…
Christopher J. Grisham, 39, has an issue with Temple Police after they stopped him and his son on a Boy Scout hike, disarmed and arrested him, his attorney says. Officers say he resisted arrest.
Now he has taken to Indiegogo to seek donations for his legal defense fund. From the campaign page…
While out hiking with my son through back country roads to help him earn his Eagle Scout rank, I was illegally arrested and disarmed without cause. I was thrown in jail and my lawfully owned weapons were confiscated without receipt or notice.
This shouldn’t happen in the United States of America, much less the State of Texas.
Crowdfunding sites like Indiegogo have played host to campaigns related to gun rights in the past. The most famous case would probably have to be the Wiki Weapon project, which was eventually pulled from Indiegogo for violating their terms.
That project dealt specifically with the creation of firearms parts or accessories, so Mr. Grisham’s campaign should be in the clear as it has nothing to do with guns and everything to do with gun rights.
He is already halfway to his goal of $11,000. As Grisham shared on his campaign page, “I live on a military salary and my wife had to use our savings to bail me out of jail so I didn’t have to spend an entire weekend waiting on the magistrate to enjoy his/hers. So, I need help fighting for my rights. I can’t afford the $10,000 retainer to hire a good lawyer familiar with these issues.”
