I applaud him for his civil disobedience, he certainly has the right to protest in this manner. However, he also has the right and responsibility to accept the consequences of his actions. Early colonists rose up against what they viewed as oppression and they were prepared to face consequences for their actions, luckily their outcome was in their favor. To DeChristoper, man up and face the sentence. He'll only serve to weaken his effort by fighting it.

As a convicted criminal serving time in a federal prison Mr. DeChristopher will find many doors closed to him in the future. Yolanda Quesada, 58, from Milwaukee, lost her job at Wells Fargo last week after the bank ran a background check which turned up a shoplifting charge from when she was just out of high school ..... in 1972.

timmy said he was willing to go to prison, but now he's appealing his sentence? I guess he lied when he said he was willing to go to prison.

If, as he said, he intended to drire up the prices for other bidders, he definitely had maliscious intent

So much for being a martyr. I thought he was making a point by going to prison. Now I guess I don't know what his point is. No wonder he has become a leader.

If he just shut up and served his time, he'd be out soon.
