1st Trial of Alleged Violation of Order of Protection at the Drone Base at Hancock Air National Guard Base, Syracuse, NY.
On Ash Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013, 8 Catholic Peace demonstrators were arrested at Hancock Airbase, holding signs that read:
"For Killing the Children, God Forgive Us!"
"For Maiming the Children, God Forgive Us!",
"We will not be in complicit with our governments War Crimes".
On that day, Grady Flores, an observer and support person, was arrested across the street and down the road as she walked to the diner, far from where the 8 others were arrested. (Those eight, by the way, were acquitted by Judge Jokl last October.)
Mary Anne Grady Flores is facing 1 year in jail, charged with allegedly violating an order of protection given on behalf of Colonel Earl A. Evans, who doesn't want any protesters at the base.
Grady Flores received the order of protection on Oct. 25th, 2012, when she and 16 others were arrested near Hancock. The order states that they must stay away from Colonel Evens' "place of employment". Grady Flores, who had never heard of the Colonel, and didn't know what he looked like, is charged with: "Criminal Contempt 2", because she took photos of the demonstrators from the roadway on Feb 13, 2013.
Mary Anne is charged with criminal intent for wanting to stop the killing by drones from the Syracuse based 174th Attack Wing. This killer drone Attack Wing kills ‘suspects’ without charges or arrest or trial. Our values , our morality, our sense of justice, our law, is being destroyed.
