Jeffrey Weinhaus, gunned down by Missouri Hwy Patrol, needs additional $3200 for lawyer feesSubmitted by Laura4liberty on Sat, 04/06/2013 - 21:28
Contributing $25 myself and I hope you'll consider a donation and repost the following:
URGENT! Want to send a message to law enforcement that they'll be held accountable if they choose to fire on citizens? Donate a few $$ on WePay so that Jeffrey Weinhaus can pay his legal fees. New evidence makes his case stronger--it's totally clear that he was carrying, legal in Missouri, but NOT threatening-- but he MUST HAVE a lawyer, and a previous prosecuting attny has agreed to begin work for a reduced fee. Additional funds are still needed, as one of his main benefactors dropped out at the last minute, but enough has been raised that the lawyer will be able to begin very soon. The new chip in shows the total amount needed no later than April 23rd. PLEASE try to chip in a little, no matter if it's only $5. Thanks to all who have donated so far!
If you want more info on how he was gunned down by an officer in the Missouri Hwy Patrol
I am very concerned about the police actions in this matter. And knowing Jeff personally before he was shot by the MSHP, I have been staying abreast of the case since the beginning. There is no longer any doubt that the police were NOT justified in shooting, and most especially in the way that they did.
There is much to be investigated here, since Jeff was a reporter who spent years searching out law enforcement and judicial corruption before his computers were taken by the police last August. On Sept. 11th he was told to meet the police to get his computers back, and instead he was shot. What needs to happen now is to make sure that Jeffrey is not locked up for life, as he may be if the lies of the officer who shot him are not exposed in his trial which begins April 30th in Union, MO. Please plan to attend the trial if you are in the area.
Already one month in the hospital and more than 5 months in jail! Because HE was shot and almost killed by police!
