OCDO is not a helping organization. They seek only to get the information out and sway public opinion by writing articles, advertising on radio stations and putting up billboard signs.
They have no interest in actually helping the activist, only capitalizing on the publicity when and if you do actually win.
I recommend, like Mike, that you look elsewhere for assistance, you will not really find it here.
That's harsh, man. And I think it's inaccurate.
No, OCDO won't raise money for a person's defense, but there is nothingstopping a state-level organization, or trusted in-state representative from doing the same.
Additionally,the publicity, the letter(s) / contact (s) that John or Mike might make are very valuable.
This OCDO, this forum and the members who populate it are quite powerful - strong enough to get on the radar of a number of LE agencies.
I'm forever glad for the creation and nurturing that John and Mike have done and continue to do.
