Now I will try to refrain from using the phrase "false flag" in the remainder of this post. But I'd like to propose a call to action. I think it might be good to set up a legal defense fund for Esteban Santiago, and to push for the following things for him:
- A complete medical examination, including a psychiatric interview and examination for evidence of psychotropic substances which he may have taken or have been given (under duress or not) by others. In order for the examination to be counted as valid, it would have to be given by a team of doctors chosen by the defense team.
- A defense team who is knowledgeable in both the tactics of the global far right and in the use of tactics developed by the state to force people to do things that they would not ordinarily do.
- A public trial televised on C-SPAN so that any and all interested parties can verify that due process is served to Mr. Santiago, that we may see for ourselves whether or not he is in fact competent to stand trial, and we may be able to judge for ourselves whether or not he received a fair trial.
