Federal "justice" center FBI Entrapment of Mohamed Mohamud

please come down to the court for the ongoing SHOW trial.
if you want to come in, you must get through security. pepper spray can be checked at the door. laptops can be checked at the courtroom, or the overflow room with the video feed.
cells phones must be powered down, because, you know, technology may outsmart their show trial system. [...]

if the rest of the world knew how bogus this trial is, and what a lifeless spectacle it is, and how poorly the US GVT's lawyer's are representing the Outrageous Predatory FBI Bomb Plot, Portland would be the laughing stock of legal communities all the way to to London.

the case is taking place in 9A of the federal Courthouse in downtown portland. the overflow room is at 12A.
arrive at least at 8, for a guaranteed seat, perhaps earlier, it's a little bit of a stampede.

1000 Southwest 3rd Avenue #740 Portland

Family of the entrapped Youth is present. Anyone who is good with media, video, sketches should come.
Courtroom seating is extremely limited (possible 20 seats beyond what the media and GVT attys get).
It is considered likely that the trial go on for 4 weeks at least. there is tons of media present but almost zero activists, or outside street demonstration. some banners would look great on the nightly news perhaps saying "FBI TRAPS" "Stop the FBI" "FBIWatch" or "FBI Predators Leave our Children Alone" or "FBI Oversight Now!" [...]

It was extremely interesting to hear a long phone call with the FBI Fake identity trying to persuade Mo to help with the FBI's Fake Bomb.
