    “At Friday’s hearing, Thius claimed the arrest was improper and
    repeatedly demanded his right to habeas corpus. Habeas corpus gives
    citizens the right to demand to be brought before a court when charged.”

    Someone watches too much television. He asked for a trial….at his trial.

    • It was an arraignment, not a trial. Either way…

      A habeas corpus hearing is not a trial, but a hearing to determine if a person’s detention is legal. In other words, a defendant has a right to challenge the state’s right to hold him.

    We mere mortals just don’t understand poor Prometheus.  He’s an interesting character in greek mythology.

    Im sure the judges stern words and a dirty look will
     straighten Mr. Thius right out.
      Lots of outstanding warrants for the camper but still
     not worth the trouble to ship him West.
       So we are stuck with him.

    He is asking for help… and wanting a warm place to stay.

      Florida….That’s a warm place….He can stay there!

      actually that’s what the claim was…WRONG  but don’t talk to me about it… just keep trespassing

      It WAS, the most beautiful place you could imagine and set for the winter.

      Please provide documentation of Achorn Cemetery property claim of ownership and the applicable business prospect or use made of the property for the necessary claim of ownership of property… particularly property not in direct proportion to the cemetery lot itself.

      Rockland Police Arrest w/o Achorn representation present, accessed by Police through private drive and private property NOT owned by Achorn Cemetery yet reported to be an instruction by an Achorn Cemetery staff member. A vague signed memorandum, not fully read by the me, the defendant was observed before my no contest plea including dropping the second trespassing charge which claimed that signs and fences were ignored.

    at the risk of sounding uneducated or out the loop, does Pro Me Thius have a special meaning?? Many odd characters in the world.. Doesn’t mean they’re bad, just interesting… He must have some sort of education or interest in reading or maybe just his prior connection with the court system or he most likely wouldn’t have known about habeas corpus??

      He’s done so much for us mortals…can’t we just overlook this minor infraction? According to mythology he already has one conviction and paid dearly for a previous crime. I guess this counts in the Maine courts? We’ll see this one again…

        From Wikipedia: Prometheus (Greek: Προμηθεύς) is a Titan, culture hero, and trickster figure who in Greek mythology is credited with the creation of man from clay and the theft of fire for human use, an act that enabled progress and civilization. He is known for his intelligence, and as a champion of mankind.[1]
         
        C’mon, let’s give the guy a break. If not for him, I wouldn’t be able to start a fire in my stove to keep my family warm, not to mention, none of us would be here if not for Pro Me Theus creating all of mankind. I do question the intelligence part though.

      yep.. no way out but to learn about common law and a failed attempt at being jailed without a complaint just to prove something that is unprovable unless I actually do commit a crime…over 20 years and I end up here.  I appreciate all the comments.  My work has been censored and my life destroyed.  I do receive $725/mo  : )  Not quite enough to pay for Section 8 which was taken from me after receiving 1 year in 2003.  Claimed a FAILED to stay a whole year.  Just trying to wake people up… a little common law, mayan calendar, reverse speech and a 3 day work week. Hate me?

       I think you mean, “Hi La Rius.”

    I like his new legal name. Pro Me Thius. It jut works well when they refer to him as “Thius” throughout the article.

  • Put a yellow rain slicker on him and a cappuchino in his hand and he’d be no different than half the folks walking around downtown Rockland. People would think he operated one of the galleries.
