Is the City of Springfield hostile to petitions? You decide I speak at 28 and a half minutes right behind a very good speech by attorney Joe Easter.



Springfield (MO) A case that has over 380 motions in federal Court now is waiting for review by the United States Supreme Court. Government Attorneys for the City of Springfield Missouri have filed a last ditch effort to stop the motion submitted by Steven L. Reed. Reed says “If you care about 1st Amendment Rights, Right to Petition at all Career Centers nationwide and Wal-Marts, and 14th Amendment, 3rd, 4th, 5th 6th….If you believe the People have the right to effect governmental functioning, Freedom, Justice, Right to Due Process, Government Corruption must be stopped” then you need to read this motion and get involved it is your future and your Country --- not a government owned by the government then read the Motion filed by Petitioner Steven L. Reed.”

Petitioner Reed responds to 3rd City Attorney for Respondent Police Officer Hicks attempt to stop Writ of Certiorari in United States Supreme Court


STATEMENT RELEASED----Steven L. Reed has sent up a request for the United States Supreme Court to review this case. Please take a look at the actual document at:

Petitioner Reed states that the extreme importance of the Free Speech and Constitutional issues is important enough that the “people are asked to send letters requesting the Court to take this case”….

Thanks Steven L. Reed



Notice to this Court and the public this request is for a review of the Interlocutory Appeal and that a final ruling has not been decided by the District Court or the Jury. The reversible errors including judicial errors must be reversed/remanded/corrected to allow for a fair jury trialand proper conclusion of case for Petitioner Reed. Reed has been denied basic due process by the lower court and the appeals courts which never wrote any rulings specific to the denial ofthe interlocutory appeals and whether the court of appeals, “has so far departed from the accepted and usual course of judicial proceedings, or sanctioned such a departure by a lower court, as to call for an exercise of this Court’s supervisory power” under Rule 10(a) of this Court’s rules.

…Whether the right to petition the government for redress of grievances, public access, freedom of speech, public access and political association are required for career centers which are formed in each state under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 set up by the United States Congress….

Dear Freedom and Constitutional Supporters:

Please send these sites to people you know.

If you want to help either:

  1. Send to media.
  2. Help find a lawyer.
  3. Give a grant of $100, $500, $1,000 to $5,000 --- to help take this case to the June 3, 2013 Trial by Jury.

Notice: Statement Released to the World Community

The case in currently in the 8th Circuit Appeals Court in St. Louis as an interlocutory appeal requesting review of fabrication of evidence. Real evidence is needed to show the Jury. It will be coming back down to the District Court where 290 Motions have been filed and it will be heading to a Jury Trial by the end of this year or the start of next year---Thanks Steven Reed---



APPEAL 5-12-12

Up to the Appeals Court---please see link---thanks!


Petitioning is the “Rights of the Citizens” to effect governmental functioning, and it along with liberties is included in the 1st, 5th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 13th, 14th, 15th, and 26th amendments of the Constitution are in peril. The most paramount issue is the fact that our Constitution on the State and Federal level must be adhered to.

In February 2010, I was getting signatures at the Career Center in Springfield for two ballot issues. The property manager showed up and said no to petitioning claiming the sidewalk is private property, and I said “call the police” and a police officer showed up and stated if I did not leave he would arrest me. I read to the officer and several government employees the “CITY OF FLORISSANT. V. JEAN STUSSIE” case. The STUSSIE CASE is the exact same situation as in the instant case where Jean Stussie was Petitioning just as Steven Reed was and she was told to quit doing the action and taken to jail. In Conclusion Ms. Stussie’s conduct of collecting signatures for a petition to put an initiative on the ballot was a clear expression of the type of core political speech that our founding fathers intended to protect by ratifying the Bill of Rights. Because the License Center acts as a public agency and Bianco profits from the performance of a public service on its property, they are state actors for First Amendment purposes. Political expression must be granted the highest deference and protection by the courts. For the foregoing reasons, the Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss is granted and all charges against Ms. Stussie are ordered dropped.

So I filed a federal lawsuit, that in a year has over 150 motions filed. I ask you to take a look at this very important case by going to: or e-mail

We are at a time when less and less people want to get involved and part of the reason people feel what is the use if government does what ever it wants. In the Interest of Justice and Democracy, Freedom and the Constitution” and the PUBLIC INTEREST please take a look at this case when you can.

BREAKING NEWS FREEDOM OF SPEECH ON THE LINE USE IT OR LOSE IT! If you have ever signed a petition and you believe in Freedom please read this! The picture above is Steven Reed Petitioning last year at the Library Center in Springfield, Missouri.

Springfield (Mo) Steven Reed of Springfield has announced that a federal case was filed back in December of last year. The Career Center Job Council of the Ozarks is supported and ran by the state and federal taxpayer’s money. The problem is the City of Springfield says they will not allow Petitioning or Freedom of Speech on the side walk at the entrance to the Career Center. The notices posted at the entrance quote city code saying no soliciting on Private Property.

Reed is asking citizens to: Please help spread to their family, friends, neighbors and local and national media. “The case concerns violations of the 1st and 14th Amendments to the United States and Missouri Constitutions and Reed says he will not stand by and watch city of Springfield walk all over the Constitution”. Over 120 Motions have been filed in District Court already as the case moves towards a jury trial. Steven Reed has announced that the latest motion notifies the Court that the City of Springfield is tangled up in obstruction of justice by allowing witness and evidence tampering.

2. There were no postings against soliciting or petitioning posted at the Missouri Career Center and Defendant Police Officer Thomas Hicks quoted no ordinance or law to Plaintiff Reed and said nothing about any complaints except that of property manager Brian Cruse.


3.

31. Defendant Hicks understands the “Controlling Law” is the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 created and controls the Missouri Career Center of Springfield, Missouri.

37. Defendant Hicks is aware the City of Springfield lost a case in Greene County Court, (see EXHIBIT #2), since it was ruled that even though Wal-Mart is on private property Jean Stussie had the right to petition since it is the same as a Public Square because so many people go there and since the Missouri Career Center has many members of the community who have to go there to do unemployment checks and look for jobs it is clearly in the realm of a Public Square.

41. Defendant Hicks believes the State of Missouri Attorney General website statement: “A crime committed against a person violates state law and thus is a crime against the state.”
