Mayor Sam Exclusive: The Craig X. Rubin Interview!!
I took a young man from my church, thefamilychurch.com, and I bought him a suit, shirt and shoes because he needed some clothes that fit. On the way to pick up my wife and take the young man to dinner with my family we stopped by our shop. He was waiting for me in my wife's t-shirt shop as I ran into my office. It was then that 12 police officers came in with guns loaded and pointed. They scared the young man into running from them into the back offices and they charged me with child endangerment.
Yes, I believe it was politically motivated because they said I was under arrest for selling medical marijuana. My attorney had been in touch with the City Attorney's office and they said they were dealing with this as a zoning issue and not a criminal matter. On our way to the police station we passed over 16 medical marijuana clubs and were joking with officers Walden and Bruno in the car about the situation.
Our attorney has informed us that the police who arrested us were not ordinary police officers, but were specifically working for the City Attorney's office, so yes, I am confident that this was an attempt on my life by the politicians of this city. They are afraid to kill me themselves, so they have me thrown into County Jail hoping I'll just die or be killed.
He and his very tall and attractive wife were nice to both my wife and myself as well. We didn't get to know them as we did candidate David Berger. My wife and I both think Mr. Berger is a gentleman. We have no bad feelings towards Mr. Trutanich and I hope he didn't send me to jail intentionally to send a message to others because that would be bad. Surviving jail is not easy and I did almost die in there. The food was horrible and I didn't eat or sleep for seven days with hardly any water. If people are doing wrong I have no problem with law enforcement doing their job, but I am being singled out along with others who speak out and that is pathetic in a "free country."
I comply with all state laws regarding medical marijuana, but in my heart I know that truly healing comes from G-d not a plant, so I am there to teach any members of our collective about the Bible. I try not to push it on anyone in an oppressive way, but I think of myself like....the Catholics running a hospital....they use real doctors and medicine, but their reason for doing it is because they know it is the right thing to do because of their faith in G-d.
