Judge England 1 Dockets.Justia.com John Doe #45 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Declaration of REDACTED in Support of Plaintiffs' Motion for Summary Judgment I, REDACTED , make the following declaration pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1746: 1. I am a resident of the state of California over 18 years of age, and my statements herein are based on personal knowledge. 2. I supported the passage of Proposition 8. 3. In support of Proposition 8, I gave approximately $ XXX to National Organization for Marriage California - Yes on 8, sponsored by National Organization for Marriage. 4. In support of Proposition 8, I also put out "Yes on 8" yard signs. Approximately two weeks before the November 2008 election, someone ripped down the "Yes on 8" sign in our front yard on a quiet street. I work the 3:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. shift, and I usually get home between midnight and 12:30 a.m. On the evening that this first sign was destroyed, I went into the garage to put my recyclables in the recycle can and heard male voices in my front yard. By the time I went back inside and out my front door, they had already pulled up the sign, and ripped it apart into several pieces. When I stepped outside, I saw two teenaged boys running away, and believe that a third ran the other way. 5. About a week later, the signs I had replaced the original in my yard with were also stolen. Other signs I had placed around the neighborhood were also stolen repeatedly, particularly in the two weeks leading up to the November 2008 election. 6. I was nervous to put out these signs in the first place, because the last thing that I want to do is offend anyone. However, because I want to support what I believe is right, I put out the signs. I thought it was very disrespectful for people to steal and vandalize my property. Although I would hope that I would support a good cause whatever the persecution that might happen to me, I will have to seriously consider my livelihood and the safety of my family in the future when deciding to support a cause similar to Proposition 8. 2 John Doe #45 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Declaration of REDACTED in Support of Plaintiffs' Motion for Summary Judgment I DECLARE UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY THAT THE FOREGOING IS TRUE AND CORRECT.
