INJUSTICE ALERT: Press Conference Hosted by Women Seeking Justice!
|Rochelle Balin & daughter Melissa||at Cannes|
WHEN: Friday, January 4, 2013 7:30AM PT
WHERE: Public Sidewalks surrounding
Division 95 Mental Competency Court
1150 North San Fernando Rd.
LA, CA 90065
WHY: Actress & Life Coach, Rochelle Balin, asks all citizens to join her in protecting the First Amendment & Freedom Of The Press. She will give a prepared statement to the public regarding the unconstitutional incarcerations and continuing cruel & unusual punishment of her filmmaker/activist daughter, Melissa Balin. Rochelle Balin will be joined by others who will speak on the First Amendment violations of citizen journalists further worsened by police brutality and court collusion; “We must shine a light on this In Solidarity or they will silence all of us.”
On December 20, 2012, MENSA member, Melissa Balin, was declared “Not Competent To Stand Trial” in Case #1CA16847-02. Judge Samantha Jessner made the ruling without ANY substantiated evidence OR ANY review of collateral data from the year-long misdemeanor case, which involves falsified Contempt of Court charges and egregious constitutional violations of Due Process.
January 4th will be the first of Melissa Balin’s court-ordered Six-Month MAXIMUM SENTENCE of weekly “competency training” sessions, resulting in a far greater curtailment of Balin’s liberty than if she had remained in the criminal justice system.
Free Cupcakes will be provided to all who Stand #InSolidarity with The First Amendment! If you cannot attend the INJUSTICE ALERT Press Conference in person, please sign & share the petition to #ExonerateMelissaBalin.
