It has been 5 days since Christopher Angulo peacefully scaled and disembarked from the embattled Jet Star roller coaster in Seaside Heights. Charged only with Disorderly Conduct 5 days of holding is excessive give the nature of his arrest. Acting as a citizen, a patriot and a compassionate human, Chris set out to raise further awareness for those still suffering from the devastation that occurred just over two months ago. His acts were positive and nothing worse than civil disobedience. For this he's awarded temporary residency in a state hospital. In the court of public opinion this appears to be another abuse of power in Seaside Heights historically tainted judicial system.
When "sober" people are cited with DC they are typically cited and released. Not in this case, however. Labeling Chris as needing psychiatric evaluation is a misuse of our judicial process and abuse of his constitutionally protected liberty.
We urge you to do whatever is possible to expedite his return to his family.

If you've watched any of the video news coverage you can see that Chris was a willing and cooperative. He showed no aggression or resistance during the event and even went so far as to contact local media outlets to relay his positive intentions.
For this, Chris hasn't been to his home, temporary though it may be, in 5 days. Hasn't been able to feed his newborn a bottle or rock the baby to sleep. This could easily be you or someone you love. Civil Disobedience is one of our most powerful tools as citizens. It is protected by our Constitutionally granted right to liberty. Passively allowing this kind of protocol abuse will eventually lead our country to tyranny. Ok, that may be stretching it a bit. But you should sign. Chris should have been home Tuesday night.
You can help.
