CITY OF DALLAS STILL HARASSING ROBERT GRODEN -- AND THE CITY STILL HASN'T GIVEN HIM HIS BAIL BOND MONEY BACK!

City of Dallas still going after Robert Groden

Dallas to appeal dismissal of charge against Dealey Plaza vendor
"81 times, and 81 losses and they still go after him."
You can't fool all the people all the time.

Dallas did give Groden his table back. Big deal, since they're still prosecuting him.

Robert Groden, the author of several books alleging conspiracy in the assassination of President Kennedy, is now going to get back materials seized from him by the city of Dallas.

Groden was arrested in June for selling his work in Dealey Plaza, and City Hall has been doggedly pursuing a case against him despite a municipal judge throwing out the charges.

The city is appealing that decision.

Meanwhile, Groden's attorney, Bradley Kizzia, has been demanding that City Hall return the materials it took from his client.

That would include a folding table, a black stool, a cardboard box, five JFK DVDs, 13 JFK magazines and one blue pen.

Kizzia reports today that the city is ready to give it back, so long as Groden stipulates the items are his, presumably in case that would become an evidentiary matter at trial.

Kizzia agreed to such a stipulation some time ago.

"After seven months and repeated requests, the City has finally agreed to release to Robert Groden the property seized from him when he was arrested last June in Dealey Plaza for trying to sell one of his magazines on the JFK assassination. This is more than seven weeks after the municipal judge dismissed the disputed charges against Groden," Kizzia writes.

He adds: "Unfortunately, however, the City has made no offer to Groden to resolve the case and apparently intends instead to continue the questionable case via appeal.

In the meantime, the City has still not returned to Groden the cash bond money that he had to pay to gain his release from jail, now seven months after the ill-advised arrest and seven weeks after the case was dismissed (and counting)."


THE ABOVE ARTICLE WAS FROM THE CITY NEWSPAPER. THE REPORTERS, OF COURSE, ARE HOG-TIED AS TO FREEDOM OF SPEECH IF THEY WANT TO KEEP THEIR JOBS. THEY DO NOT EXPRESS HOW LIKE A POLICE STATE GRODEN'S TREATMENT HAS BEEN. BUT A DALLAS VOICE THAT'S NOT SO GAGGED BY 'DISCRETION' HAS THIS TO SAY:

By Chasing Robert Groden from Dealey Plaza, City Hall Conspires to Make Dallas Look Asinine

Let's not even get into the underlying issue of whether Robert Groden should be able to sell his books and magazines about the Kennedy assassination on Dealey Plaza downtown. Just for grins, let's put that to one side.

What gets me is the extreme Vladimir Putin-style in-your-face we're-not-even-embarrassed-by-it thug-ocratic stupidity of the way the city has gone after him.

The city says Groden can't sell Kennedy assassination literature in Dealey Plaza without a special Dealey Plaza Literature Sales Permit (DPLSP). Groden doesn't have one.

Why doesn't he have one? I mean, if that's what you have to have, why doesn't the guy go over to City Hall, fill out the necessary paperwork, pay the fee and get himself a DPLSP? What is he, a hard-head?

No, that's not the problem. The problem is that there is no such thing as a DPLSP. There is no paperwork you can fill out, no fee you can pay. The city does not, cannot and will not provide anyone with a Dealey Plaza Literature Sales Permit.

But you better have one. If not, they'll ticket you, fine you, shut you down and run you out of town.

​Now do you get it? We've got a floor full of lawyers over at City Hall in the process of appealing a ruling by a judge who decided in Groden's favor in December and again last week. I would summarize the judge's opinion in the case as: WTF. And I think the city's position in response to the ruling could be summarized as FU.

There are so many questions I could ask. Does it occur to anyone that this kind of official behavior may be related to the problem of downtown Dallas being a dead zone? Does the city of Dallas not mind looking like an ass? Is this not some kind of criminal behavior by the city, like official oppression, that could result in charges against city officials?

But I'm not asking those questions. Forget those questions. I just wind up with the same question the judge did. WTF?


THAT'S A DALLAS CITIZEN'S RESPONSE. HE CANNOT QUITE SPEAK ALL HE'D LIKE TO, WE MUST ASSUME. AFTER ALL, HE LIVES IN DALLAS.
