Most people are most likely aware of what is happening with this trial (Persecution) but what many are not aware of are the tactics being used to make
a milk farmer a criminal. This man can't even have a fair trial that is being held in the public spot light. In fact he is being denied his right to a
fair trial right in front of the World and nothing is being done about it.
The judge, Guy Reynolds, is essentially directing the jury how to vote and what they are allowed to hear....The whole case hinges on these words
that are banned.
List of things struck from the trial - this stems from the judge's agreement with prosecution before the trial began. He has sided with the State
every step of the way:
Defense is not allowed to talk of defendant's personal liberty - no talk of liberty allowed
The words “raw milk” are not allowed to be spoken during the trial.
No talk about safety or health reasons - this made it impossible for witnesses to talk about why they went to his farm.
According to Josh Tolley, talk of "natural foods" was not allowed.
No talk of whether there was criminal intent in not obtaining a license - Note: shouldn't that right there be cause for jury nullification?
Can't talk about criminal intent - then where is the crime? Also, you can't obtain a license for fresh food or memberships in Wisconsin!
Photos from the farm were argued against and called "irrelevant."
No discussion of why his farm was initially raided in 2010.
No talk of herd shares or memberships - how did the witnesses discuss? Very carefully, see below
A woman wearing a "Got Initiative?" shirt was told to remove it before entering because it hinted at a reference. A picture of her appears on one of
the Facebook updates I'm watching.
Mark McAffe was ordered to cover his shirt because it said: "get raw milk."
A teenager wearing a "Raw Milk Me" button was asked to remove it before entering.
For those finding this hard to believe, take a look at just a snippet of testimony and a Judge playing God that only belongs in a Communist
Defense testimony from one of Vernon Hershberger's buying club members since 2004, Joseph Plasterer, as to how he came to seek out farm's food.
Plasterer: We were looking for some natural milk sources, in early 2004.
Defense lawyer: Did you come and meet the Hershbergers?
Plasterer: Yes. We asked if we could be part of the farm…
Defense: Did you have a reason?
Plasterer: My son was not thriving…"
Judge Guy Reynolds: Sustained
Plasterer: We wanted access to unproc food that was higher qual that would not be available from the stores.
Judge Reynolds: Sustained. Strike the answer. The jury is to ignore that.
How can this even happen in America? This man has absolutely no chance of winning with this judge. He isn't even allowed to present a fair defense
because he can't use words like health, raw, etc. How is this happening?
Vernon Hershberger is facing over two years prison time and $10,000 in fines for four criminal misdemeanor charges and the only thing he's done is
provide people with what they want...healthy alternatives to the grocery chains.
And something else coming to light that should scare the hell out of every American and I will include Canadian as well:
Inspector Jackie Owens admitted on the stand that it is not illegal to have a farm, grow your own and consume those goods. That did not stop her
from barging in while Vernon was away, without a warrant, to do a sneak-attack inspection that led to destruction of his food. One investigator
admitted that she knew they were destroying his family's personal food stores, but did it anyway.
And last but certainly not least, how is it that something so widely publicized doesn't have Washington all over it to protect this man's
Constitutional rights? If anything ever showed that America is no more...this is it.
