The court reporter added words... left out paragraphs. The district attorny [sic] has informed me that he has no intention of question this decision of the superior court even if they have broken the law -- Unless they can legally arrest innocent people I can only interpret the parade 'even if they can legally do so' when a crime is committed that act [exception with me] and they have closed the file arrested me for good...".
