The state has given up and will dismiss the naked bike ride case -- all four counts!!!
Thanks to Paul Piche, Shirley Fitzgerald, Diane Woodcock, and Damon Woodcock, who all spent endless FREE hours investigating this case, and never wavered in their devotion and commitment to protect everyone's right to ride naked in front of the justice center, in front of Cinema 21, in front of shoppers on NW 23rd, endless cellphone cameras, and of course, the Portland Police.
Thanks to the naked witnesses, Jasun Wurster, Adam Douglas, Kyle Kelly, Curt Dewees, and of course Rev. Phil for making this representation such a joy!
Thanks to Bronwyn for such a great job modeling for the naked justice publicity poster, to Dat for his great photography, and to Curt for organizing the effort. Thanks to Steve Sherlag for donating his scales of justice to use for our absolutely beautiful publicity poster for the now not-happening 6/27 trial, and John Gastin for offering his scales.
Above all, thanks Rev. Phil for being such a joy throughout this process. You're a great man.
Without their help, my guy would be fighting for his freedom next Wednesday and having a much tougher time of it. Instead, the state was staring right down the barrel of a bitter, complete defeat and blinked.
Isn't life grand?
P.S. Join us on the World Naked Bike Ride next June 8th or so . . . and remember, your incidental nudity is protected speech!
