Latest Updates for Tim DeChristopher’s Sentencing | Peaceful Uprising

Latest Updates for Tim DeChristopher’s Sentencing | Peaceful Uprising.

I hadn’t really paid that much attention, but this morning I saw that there was a lot of buzz surrounding the sentencing for Tim DeChristopher.

Now, I’m not saying that 2 wrongs make a right… he did break the law by bidding on a lease that he had no intention of honoring or paying… but…

Why was the auction even taking place?

After reviewing the leases; it was found that only about 20% of the 116 parcels up for auction that day were legal. The orchestrators and deal brokers who put these illegal deals together face no charges, while DeChristopher, for stopping illegal sale of public lands faces up to 10 years in prison and fines totaling up to $750,000 

I’m no legal expert, but something seems a bit unfair here. His intention was to stop the illegal sale of public land (with absolutely zero financial compensation or profit to be collected) while the real criminals walk free.

Hmm? What do you think?
