    Friday October 5th. Portland

    Okay guys. Friday night October 5th, after dark, I am going to go for a walk in Portland. If anyone is free to go with me you are welcome to come. If we are stopped by the police, I ask that you let me do any talking. I will bring a copy of the state Preemption law and a phone for recording. I suggest everyone else that comes brings a video recording device as well. I'm willing to get arrested if need be (I will not be violating the law because of state preemption). I'm not going to stand for this ******** anymore. I'm going to take a stand. I'll be walking in the Old Port district and Congress street from probably 8-11pm. I'll be parking on Commercial street where there is free parking.

    After tonight? Count me in.
    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.

    I'll be parking and starting from right in front of Rufus Deering Lumber Company and the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. Tons of free parking there along Commercial Street.

    I think it's about a 1/4 mile past Irving in between High and Maple street.

    Ok, count me in. Not sure that I will be walking for the entire duration, but I'd love to join you. I'm going to buy a digital recorder either today or tomorrow, too, so I can test it out.

    If I can make it I will. Not sure if I'll have transportation and driving back from Portland to Orono at 11am will suck. Hope I can make it though, I am willing to be arrested as well. Good luck to those attending if I don't see you.

    REPORT: I got there around 8:20. Didn't see anyone else, and I was late, so I started walking on my own. Walked from Commercial up to Fore street, then up to Congress street. After I turned off Congress street at about 9:00 a Police SUV approached me from the rear. The officer never got out of his truck. He rolled the window down and asked "Are you okay?" I replied "Yes." He asked if he could have my name in case anyone calls about me. I told him sorry, but no he could not and to have a nice night. He said "Have a good night" back to me, rolled up his window, and accelerated away. No lights, no sirens, no panic, no detainment. Complete consensual encounter that ended with a good night on both sides. Overall encounter less than 30 seconds. Afterward I continued walking for another hour. I passed by at least 3 other officers and they didn't bother me at all.

    TLR - Police did well.

    Nice! I'm glad everything went well, or normal. Sorry that I had to bail.
