Day in court after Lower Dolores crackdown.

Hello all
Thought some of you might like to know that at least 5 of us were in court today from all of the lower d madness a couple of months ago. Some got off with nothing thankfully. Some got penalties much stiffer then would have come from a county or Colorado state court. The thing that disturbed me was that the officers involved and the prosecutor had everything that I had posted on mountainbuzz. Just a warning that if this situation arrises again to keep quiet. I don't regret anything I wrote it just suprised the shit out of me when they called me out as mountainfish. I guess it was not hard to put it together and I am pretty sure I got stiffer penalties b/c of what I wrote on this forum. Just a heads up. If anyone wants details I will talk off the forum. Watch out for the man

I got quoted in the local newspaper from the buzz for something I wish was not publisized in that regard. we are on a public forum and it sucks that someone like 'the man' could use it in such a way... down with the man!

what rights

so much for our so-called freedom of speech, that is our federal goverment at work. Anything you say on mountainbuzz will be used in a court of law? What about the random fines? Seems like the pulled them all out of a hat.: What happened to the set standards that all other juridictions use? Just a question?

That sucks. F&^K the man.
How did they finger you as Mtn>Fish? Did the court subpoena Mtn.Buzz records? It is a public forum, but I would think that if the courts wanted records of names and IP addresses, the admins on this site would not just hand them out. I hope that you did not get ratted out. PM me or e-mail.

Gotta say, I agree with Caspian on that one.

I don't believe any of the Admins had a hand in this.

That is a bummer, but it is a public forum, and you had "the right to remain silent", correct? They could have even subpoena'd a friend if they heard that you had talked to them and possibly incriminated yourself.

It is pretty creepy that they knew you were Mtnfish, they are lurking!
