John Murtari hunger strike protest.
John Murtari has been on a hunger strike after being jailed without a jury trail. A PHD in aeronautics, Murtari lost his job and took a lower paying job at an ISP. Unable to pay the extremely high child support payment, he asked the courts to re-adjust his payment. The court denied him. The judge offered him probation or 6 months jail time. Murtari chose jail time with protest. Murtari stated Even Terrorists get a trail by jury.
He is finally on a feeding tube, forced down his nose, after loosing 28 lbs. Update
with protest photos and his comments on the protest.
