A number of folks have e-mailed us asking how to get in touch with our family member, radio host and blogger Hal Turner, while he awaits his new federal criminal trial.
You can write to Hal using the Post Office Box address below. We will see to it that Hal receives all mail.
P.O. Box 1103
Secaucus, NJ 07096-1103
In addition, "The Hal Turner Show" number telephone is still in service, so you can call Hal or leave a voice mail message . . . . . but be mindful the government probably still has that phone tapped. That number is 201-484-0060. The radio show FAX line is also still in service at 201-604-3504.
Hal remains free on $500,000 Bail, under house arrest with an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet, forbidden from speaking to the media and from using the internet.
He was arrested on June 24 after publishing an Editorial which was critical of the way three federal Judges violated the US Constitution and violated a recent US Supreme Court Ruling. Hal wrote that the Judges were "traitors" to the United States and were tyrants. He quoted Thomas Jefferson's "Tree of Liberty Letter" which said "The tree of liberty must be replenished from time to time with the blood of tyrants and patriots." Hal then wrote "Let me be the first to say this plainly, these judges deserve to be killed."
The government claims that saying the judges "deserve to be killed" is a threat to actually go out and kill them! Hal knows that saying someone "deserves" something is just an opinion.
Based on what he wrote, the government charged Hal with "threatening to assault and murder three United States judges." Hal spent 119 days in federal custody until being released on $500,000 cash bail October 21.
Hal went on trial in federal court in Brooklyn, NY on December 1, but the trial ended in a hung jury that voted 9 to 3 in favor of acquittal.
Hal is the first American media editor to be jailed for an Editorial since the Civil War. The last American media editor to be jailed for an editorial in this country was Benjamin Franklin Bache, grandson of one of our Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin. Bache was jailed in the 1860's for publishing an Editorial opposing the Civil War. That's how long it has been since an Editor in America was arrested for an Editorial! That's why the arrest of Hal Turner is actually historic. This type of thing isn't supposed to happen in America, yet it is.
The charges against Hal are false; he committed no crime. The case against him is nothing short of a full frontal assault upon freedom of speech which is why 9 out of 12 jurors voted NOT GUILTY.
Hal made no threat to do anything to anyone. He made no demand for anyone to do anything to anyone and he did not say anything was actually going to happen to anyone. Yet the government charged him anyway. So much for freedom of speech.
Hal would love to hear from you so as to know he is not alone in this fight.
