This guy Tim DeChristopher got put in Federal prison for doing a pro active civil demonstration pretty much alone by the lights of his heart. He was right in what he did.
It embarrassed and made people in power mad. They put him in prison, ambulance which was bad enough. Now he is having the screws put to him.
He is being caused to really suffer. They are doing to him Isolation, and making his two years into ten.
Call and complain. Call cause I say please do so.

I'm getting more tempted not to vote for Obama or anybody this next opportunity because President Obama is not reported to have done anything to support Tim DeChristopher who is an American lone wolf hero, who just saw an injustice and acted off the cuff, and is really suffering for it.
The last number of the 5 number list is for Jason Chaffetz. 202-225-7751. Calling these people is supposed to influence them to make Tim DeChristopher's time in prison less painful. He ought not be in prison at all.

He said thqt in his Harvard lectures of 1905.
