Agents Bo Gritz, the nationally popular symbol of the patriot movement was arrested here in the Cleveland area around noon time today Saturday, the 13th of January, 1996. The retired Lt. Col. Green Beret was in Cleveland by invitation to speak at a west side patriot rally. Mr Gritz was arrested without a warrant by a contingent of federal agents in the parking lot of a local motel. Also arrested along with Mr. Gritz was a local militia member who was to transport Mr. Gritz to the scheduled event. Bo Gritz had arrived in the Cleveland area Thursday morning and was staying at an undisclosed hospitality. Being the most decorated soldier during Viet Nam, a hero of the veterans, champion for the still missing Prisoners of War of Southeast Asia and Populist Party Presidential candidate in 1992 Bo Gritz has become the center of federal investigations and apparent repeated harassment. Meanwhile, back at the rally, 300 plus attendees to the free function sat and listened to the other scheduled speakers, all the while turning to the rear of the hall looking to see if the keynote speaker had arrived yet. One by one the others concluded until late in the day an organizer took to the podium to make a difficult announcement. With visible trepidation and cautious wording it was announced that Bo Gritz had been taken into federal detention without a warrant and was being held 'for questioning'. The phrase "Lets Go!" was heard several times within the crowd. Information was sketchy at best as to were exactly Mr. Grist and his escort were being held. It was learned that the two men were being held in a special section of the Justice Center. Twelve cells are set aside within the counties jurisdiction for the detention of federal suspects. This is required because the federal government has no actual jurisdiction in the state and as such must use county sheriff's facilities, the only lawful 'police' in the state. Technically all federal actions must occur with the knowledge and consent of the local county sheriff. Among those in attendance at the rally was a sizable representation of the One Supreme Common Law Court of ohio. It was determined that the action necessary was to hold an immediate session of Court right there at the hall, convene a Common Law Jury and judicate a writ of Habeas Corpus to demand the release of the two men. Quickly a lap top computer was produced where the legal documents required were composed. Someone produced a laserjet printer and the writ was finalized. A jury of twelve men and three alternates were selected and sworn in under oath to the bible, the Common Law's only true book of Law. A video camera recorded the entire proceedings. All men raising their right hand and taking there oath to God. The writ was read out loud and a vote was passed to proceed with the action naming the federal F.B.I. and the County Sheriff as the wrongful parties. All fifteen of the men signed the documents. These proceedings, although quickly convened, did take some time and it was nearing eleven o'clock at night before all the necessary procedures had been concluded. All but one, that is. This writ to secure these men's release still had to be served to the sheriff, or his representative, down at the county lock-up at the Justice Center. It was at this point that this observer decided to record this evenings event rather than follow the Common Law Court downtown.

In a recent post here, someone calling himself "Charles Sparks" put up a message to the effect that Col. Bo Gritz had been arrested in Cleveland, Ohio. Follow-up with Bo's people has disclosed that he was not even IN Cleveland, but in Denver and is NOT incarcerated. Several possibilities come to mind: 1. Sparks (or whoever he is) has gotten ahold of some really bad peyote; 2. Sparks is delusional and/or has just completed a creative writing course and wanted to give it a shot; 3. Sparks is an agent provocatuer working for the feds trying to stir up the troops for some sort of manufactured confrontation. For more on this bogus "story" about "Bo's Bust", listen to Jack McLamb's show tonight (1/15/96) at 8 pm EST at 5745 on the shortwave band (World Harvest Radio)
