To whom it may concern,
To begin, One is certainly not a credible source, and One acknowledges that. Let's not start by trying to accept anything One will say on any reasonable, credible standing. One is an "Internet MetaVillain" and we'll leave it at that.
That having been said and understood for what it means, One would like to offer my opinion for your consideration.
As One understands, The Ray, has been or will be charged with assault on an officer, resisting arrest, and most probably any number of smaller charges. His defense must be spirited, and One has faith that you will be up to this challenge. You will know the law and it's role, much better than One would ever presume.
That also said, One goes outside the law, to a larger issue for your consideration. The Ray did not work alone, and he did not form his radical ideology in a vacuum. He has been aided and abetted by the "superhero culture". A culture mostly of social outcasts, and malcontents, who tell make believe adventure stories to each other to fill the void of their empty lives. They tell each other how to make body armor, how to attack innocent citizens they suspect might be "evil doers", and online "pat each other on the back" for their presumed crime fighting successes. The recent Phoenix Jones arrest attributes to the same sickness in this culture - but Phoenix, unlike Jack Cero - the loudest advocate of the X-Alts crime gang, actually does have people arrested.
The Ray is little more than a victim in all of this. A young man, barely 21, living at home with his parents, his only other previous social activity being the Boy Scouts. He was an easy target for their brainwashing, and they took him and shaped him into yet another weapon in their cult arsenal. The Ray was undoubtedly trying to live out a comic book adventure, or one like his X-Alts mentors have often told online. Subpoena Facebook for search warrants for the "X-Alts" page and pages for "Jack Cero" currently going under the Alias "Jacqueline Cero". You may also find interesting criminal records for any number of these "superhero"/ X-Alts/ Vigilantes. Violence is what One suspects you find in abundance.
And that's another point. The X-Alts have been promoting themselves (See the HBO Documentary) as vigilantes. Taking the law into their own hands. You can find such claims associated with any number of interviews associated with the New York Initiative, the flagship of this Dangerous Street Gang. They have at least one interview describing the use of everyday objects (example: Harmonica) as a crippling or killing device.
One feels you will make the best defense you can, but at some point, should you find it necessary to ask for understanding and or leniency from either a sentencing judge or a jury of Reasonable Adults, One hopes you will find this appeal to have merit.

It has been pointed out to me, and verified in numerous sources that the Ray is not a member of the X-Alts, and rereading my text above, One does not claim that he IS a member of the X-Alts, only that he was trying to emulate the actions of his mentors the X-Alts (specific text; "The Ray was undoubtedly trying to live out a comic book adventure, or one like his X-Alts mentors have often told online. ")
To clarify, The Ray is not a member of the X-Alts, though the text below does not make that distinction clear;
"On my way to my day (or night is a better description) job, I noticed I had received a call from Motor-Mouth, marked "urgent." Motor-Mouth leads one of two groups of RLSH/ X-ALTS in the California Bay Area. His group is the Pacific Protectorate, North-Cal division. There is also a team called the California Initiative- a team that also includes branches in Virginia and the team's origin point in New York.
Both groups have made an effort to do security detail with the Occupy protests in the area. The Occupy Oakland protests in particular have turned very ugly as protestors have clashed with heavy handed police over the last week. Police fired tear gas, rubber bullets and flash grenades into the crowd.
Motor-Mouth called to tell me that his team mate, The Ray, had been out in the middle of it during protests Wednesday night. He says he received a text from Ray, saying he was at the protests, but was probably heading home after another walk around to check out the scene."
