Lone Vet banned


from attending city


council meetings

UPDATE 10/13/14

You might be interested in an appeal of my banishment from city hall.   I was excluded from city hall on the 17th of September for 30 days and nights for alleged bad behavior. I appealed and there will be a second hearing on November 3, 2014 at 08:30 AM at the Hearing Office, 1900 SW 4th Ave. Rm 3100. What makes this hearing of interest is that the Hearing Officer has granted my request that Mayor Hales, Commissioner Fritz and Commissioner Fish be called as witnesses, (hostile.) They will be subpoenaed by me via a representative, Mr. Bryant Enge, Director, Bureau of Internal Business Services, 15 of October, 2014. The appeal is based on my right to petition government as outlined in the US Constitution, Oregon Constitution, City Charter, and to steal a line from my good friend, Thomas Paine, "Common Sense."

For those of you who know or not, I was banned from attending city council meetings because of my “Disrupted Behavior” for 30 days and nights. I have appealed and the first hearing will be on Tuesday, October 7, 2014. Location is 1900 SW 4th Ave. in room 3000 on the 3rd floor








[floor 2 & 3]

Individuals for Justice founding member, The Lone Vet, has papers in his hand in front of city hall, from just being served that morning, telling him he cant go to the 2nd or 3rd floor of that building.


After talking with me about this "muzzling" and being "shut down" he then enters the building, and is briefly challenged by the security staff, before going up to floor 4, which is the office for "the City Attorney'



There are three people standing outside of City Hall, one an Activist and he/she has a loud bullhorn in their hand so better for the mayor to hear what is said outside his office window. The volume is turned way up, and all in the area can hear, "Come out, come out little piggy or we will blow you house down!" The second person standing on Fourth Avenue waiting to be invited inside is the Advocate.


The Advocate is a gentle person who will go through the required staffer to arrange a meeting, they see themselves as representing those with little influence in politics; they are good and noble people. They create organizations, nonprofits to try to balance the state of power whether it is local or national, they get along.




There is the third person who will not stand but sit in the automobile waiting for that lunch date and that is the diplomat. They will often run interference between the first two and the political figure hiding in the fortress be it the Bastille or just any city hall. One of the great problems when dealing with politicians is we do not know who we are, there are some activists who will never ask anything from a politician, they demand or will confront the person and embarrass them to no end. Good example of effective activists was the Gay Rights organization of the 70s called "Act Up." Currently, we have a group of women who call themselves "Code Pink." Both groups will interrupt a press conference, stop a presentation by a Secretary of State, and embarrass the hell out of some politician who is saying nothing but is taking a long time saying it. I make no bones about it; these noble people are my favorite type of organizers. I consider myself in this group; but we need all three.
Here is what Code Pink looks like working:

Dear Commissioner Fritz, 7/3/2014








This is a request that your Parks Department/Bureau take care of a problem that has apparently been going on for some time. I was in Chapman Park yesterday, July 2, 2014, I had to use the restroom and found that the men’s room did not have a door on it. This was disturbing to me and I want this taken care of immediately. I was made aware of a message your managers sent out to Joe-Anybody and that was outrageous.
