Can We Get a Midnight Matt Update?
What happened at Midnight Matt's court appearance, and when is the next opportunity to offer him support in his ridiculous legal situation?
Due to cooking/serving on Wednesdays with Berkeley Catholic Worker, I was not able to be at Midnight Matt's court appearance. The ever-zealous Zachary Running Wolf informed me that Matt was additionally charged with having a police officer's helmet up on his protester's tree platform. Can the public please receive a report as to what happened at Matt Dodt's last court appearance, and a general update of his continuing ridiculous legal situation? What's up? Tuk Pikuni!
Apparently, Matt's next court date is April 4th. I wasn't able to post his last court date due to lack of details. I will post the next hearing as soon as I can. I feel bad that circumstances had diverted my ability to uptain the information needed for posting the previous court date.
As for the current situation, nothing really happened at Matt's last court hearing. The judge put it off again, and many people get the impression that an eventual trial isn't going to happen, because they can hold Matt for a total of 60 days before doing anything. But, I don't know.
Shifting gears somewhat, let me point out an important discrepancy that's been delivered by some mainstream media, such as the SF Chronicle, that Drayco-- the guy who was stabbed in the hand and was the reason Matt was arrested, and has now been in jail for well over a month--disappeared and no one knows what happened to him. Drayco can actually be seen just about everyday in People's park, regularly threatening to kill or attack someone. I would also add this detail, from which the reader can draw their own conclusions: Drayco, a supposedly poor homeless guy, now has a laptop computer, and on Thursday was in the park waving around a screen phone.
