We received this message and photo from Ross on June 21, in time to read it at Porcfest 2014.
Hi Porcfest, this is Ross.
The first thing they tell you when they arrest you is that what you say will be used against you, and they mean it. So I have to keep this brief. I’d just like to thank you for giving my Mom, Lyn, the chance to tell you about the situation I’m in and why the outcome of this legal battle will have a lasting impact on you and the rules you live under in this country.
One thing I’ve learned since beginning my tour of the federal criminal justice system is that these guys are not all-powerful. They can be beaten and precedent can be set that will limit their ability to infringe on our rights.
I urge you to stand by me and do what you can to turn this horrible situation into a win.
I wish I could be there with you, but of course I can’t. With your help though, I’ll see you at Porcfest 2015!
