Human Rights Advocate Paul Lathrop urgently needs your help. Paul is a longtime advocate of the people’s right to self-defense. He is the Creator and Co-Executive Producer of The Polite Society Podcast which is, downloaded thousands of times each week. Paul is about as “salt of the earth” as you can get. A long-haul truck driver and driving instructor by trade, he and his loving wife Susan are two of the finest people on the planet. Over the weekend, Paul was in Nebraska training a student driver when the following situation unfolded.
The student driver had stopped at a station to refuel. As the student pulled away from the pump, another driver apparently felt that the student was too close to his rig. Although there was no collision, the irate driver of the other truck rushed over to the driver’s side of Paul’s rig and aggressively approached the student. The student felt that he was about to be assaulted and told the aggressor to back off. Paul also demanded that the driver back off. After some back and forth, the other driver finally went back to his vehicle and the student drove off. Unfortunately, the other driver decided to call the police and accused Paul of threatening him with a gun. The student swears that he never saw a gun at any time during the confrontation, but the police stopped them and Paul was arrested. Paul has been accused of making “terroristic” threats. Many of you are aware that this is one of the latest ploys used by ambitious prosecutors all over the nation. In addition, they included “Possession of a weapon during the commission of a felony”. Of course the “felony” is the trumped up charge of making terroristic threats. I find that to be a self-referencing, catch-22 type of charge.
In any event, many of you know Paul and those of you who don’t but who know me (Frank Jack Fiamingo - Founder of New Jersey Second Amendment Society) can feel confident that he deserves our help and support. Paul is going to need money for bail and for a defense attorney. I am asking you to please consider joining me to support this very deserving, hard-working advocate of our rights. Paul’s resources are modest and he really needs the help of the 2A and human rights community.
