Sorry this is last minute. I just found out today that Kory is to appear in court Friday morning (tomorrow) at 9:00 AM in District 5 at 200 Lewis Ave. for a citation at Huntridge Circle Park.
This happened the same day the others were arrested for "misuse of a hand signal" in the middle of the park which was later changed (somehow?) to JAYWALKING.
Anyway, Kory was cited for sharing his hard-boiled eggs with his homeless friends- sharing food without a permit. btw, Kory is not homeless. He is of Ute descendent and he has been a homeless advocate for years now- Salt Lake City, Provo, Denver, etc.
The marshals told him he could not share his hard-boiled eggs. He proceeded to educate the marshals in his natural passive, non-violent Christian way. He told the marshals that the land belonged to the Native Americans and that they should reach out and touch the homeless, etc., etc.
The female marshal told him that he had a big mouth. And, if he did not immediately leave the park, he would be arrested. She also told him to leave the park and not come back.
I guess if you excercise your free speech in this city, you have a big mouth.
Please show your support for the homeless and destitute, and show your support for freedom of speech, free exercise of religion, and the right of the people peaceably to assemble.
