This episode is about The Demurrer and Probable Cause. It’s being released on May 28, 2014, and was recorded April 24, 2014.
Greg is a gigging musician and music instructor who found himself at the mercy of a policy enforcer of lesser intelligence one night on the way home from a gig. A student of the Trivium, Psychology, and Natural Law, Greg took it upon himself to respectfully decline to acquiesce to the officer's demands for documentation and soon found himself being violently ripped from his property with no prior warning of intent to arrest. Greg maintained his cool and attempted to refrain from escalating the situation with a person obviously acting outside of the bounds of reason and law -- he found it vastly more important to see down the longer road ahead and use lawful reason to assert his natural rights.
After a brief stint in a county jail, Greg contacted Freeman Burt in order to obtain assistance in thwarting the nonsensical resistance charges brought against him by this agent of the state acting under the color of law. He has learned a great deal in a short amount of time, but his motivation has remained strong as he has attempted to navigate City Hall. He has smelled the rotten fruits of the fallacy of ad vericundiam first hand, and it has awakened something in him that will never sleep again.
