City Appealing Robin Hood Case to Supreme Court – Sentinel Reports

RobinHood_sheriffKyle Jarvis at the Keene Sentinel is reporting that the people calling themselves the “City of Keene” will be appealing their loss in the Robin Hood case(s) to the NH “supreme” court.  The appeal has not yet been filed.  I’ll post it here when I get a copy.

City boss John MacLean has already claimed they spent at least $20,000 taxpayer dollars on the initial “superior” court case.  How much will the appeal cost?  Another $30,000?  The required transcript of the three full days of “evidentiary hearings” will probably be a few thousand dollars alone.  Whether “the City” wins or loses, I bet their private hired-gun attorney Charles Bauer will be laughing all the way to the bank.

Did the Keene city council approve this PR nightmare of a decision?  Will the city people ever learn to stop aggressing against peaceful people?  Stay tuned here to Free Keene for the latest on the Robin Hood saga.

UPDATE:  Technically, they are appealing the dismissal of the case(s), so wouldn’t that mean that if the appeal is successful that the cases are remanded back to “superior” court to move ahead to trial?  Keep in mind the first case never made it to actual trial – the three days we spent in court were merely “evidentiary hearings” for the purposes of the judge possibly issuing a preliminary injunction against us.

  1. Did anyone ask the taxpayers if they wanted to pay for this crap?

  2. Yes, just last month in fact. That’s why Mr. Perry isn’t Mayor.

  3. Time to rid the city of the morons that keep using the peoples money for BS. The private lawyers on this case are probably giving kick-backs to the city officials that hired them. Something smells fishy!

  4. Um, no. If there are limited choices of candidates, choosing one candidate does not mean that you endorse every single position that candidate might take.

    It’s like someone offering to stab you in the right leg, break your left leg with a crowbar, or break your jaw by kicking it. “But I don’t want to be injured at all!” is not an option you were given. Saying, “well, I guess having a broken left leg is less of an inconvenience than the other two” does not constitute endorsement of the attack.

  5. And you are saying having Darryl Perry as mayor is which? having your leg stabbed, your leg being broken with a crowbar, or being kicked in the jaw?

  6. That would depend upon the particular individual making the determination. Someone who leeches of the taxpayers might be highly opposed to a mayor who would close down or reduce that gravy train.

  7. So basically what you’re saying is that it’s not really like a choice between being stabbed smashed or kicked, but rather it’s more like a choice between winning the lottery, receiving a surprise inheritance from a rich uncle, or getting a special place in heaven with thirty-three virgins, depending–as you say–upon the particular individual making the determination.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

  8. No, that’s not at all what I’m saying.

    Government is not some happy shiny pleasant thing. Government is force. Sometimes force can be used for good, and sometimes for evil, but it’s always force.

    Choosing between various individuals who will wield that force does not constitute a mandate for absolutely anything one of those individuals does. If you make a decision to vote for Mr. X, because you think he’s less likely to have you murdered than Mr. Y, that doesn’t mean you like Mr. X, or endorse every choice he makes. It means you don’t want to be murdered by Mr. Y, and that’s it.
