Someone found a Maine official with a heart — homeless man released for charging cellphones on public electricity


Dangerous murals on Maine labor history – removed by Scrooge LePage

Prosecutors have declined to pursue charges against a homeless man in Maine who helped himself to an outdoor electrical outlet to charge a pair of cellphones.

Bangor police originally charged 23-year-old Shaun Fawster last weekend with theft of services after an officer caught him charging phones on an outlet hidden behind some flowers. He was also charged with carrying a concealed weapon after the officer found a folding knife tucked under his shirt.

But Susan J. Pope, assistant district attorney, said prosecutors declined to pursue the case.

Fawster, who’s a transient with no known address, couldn’t be reached for comment.

I don’t mind giving you a comment. With a state governed by a drudge who hates art that depicts working people as worthwhile human beings, with [a few] coppers who harass a homeless dude who stays North instead of heading South – it only took a day or two to find an assistant DA with her head screwed on straight enough to release the poor bugger.
