Copblock Radio’s Eric Freerock on Trial for “Disobeying an Officer” 2014-01-30

During a DUI checkpoint in 2013, Cop Block Radio‘s Eric Freerock was arrested for “Disobeying an Officer”, which translates to not showing his ID fast enough. It was his first arrest and this was his first trial. Unfortunately he doesn’t challenge the main claim against him, that he “refused” to show ID, which he did not, he simply returned the officer’s request with some questions, and was promptly arrested. Sadly, there is no video of their interaction, though I’ll link to other video of the checkpoint below. Here’s the full trial video from Keene district court – it’s also the first activist trial in the fancy new courthouse:

At the end, I confront a confused state trooper, “Jerome” over his threatening of me during the same DUI checkpoint when I attempted to exit a vehicle as a passenger.

VIDEO: Heroic Keene Police Arrest Dangerous Cannabis Users

Keene police officers Kyle Macie and new guy Kevin Baca were on the streets last night protecting the town from the scourge of two young men, a bong, and some cannabis in jars. I happened across the scene last night while out biking, pulled out my phone, started up Bambuser, and recorded/streamed the scene:

“City of Keene” v. “Robin Hood” – Day 1

On Monday, August 12, the “Evidentiary” hearing for the lawsuit filed by the “City of Keene” against six individuals collectively dubbed “Robin Hood” went down at “Superior” court in Keene. As the title of this post indicates, it was the first of what may be three or four days in legaland. The next date, which won’t happen in the next few weeks due to a full docket, is still to be determined.

Those of us named as “Robin Hood” were told be be present at 9am. We didn’t exit legaland until 4pm.

The “City of Keene” called parking enforcement officer (PEO) Linda “Lynn” Desruisseaux, counselor Mary Kimmel (who, while testifying, was getting paid 225FRNs/hour from the “City of Keene”), and former PEO Alan Givetz (who only got through part of his testimony – that which related to me, Pete Eyre). I then testified (as I had informed those present that the next day I was to leave the ‘shire for an extended period of time per the Police Accountability Tour).

When wrapping-up for the day both myself and John Meyer, who is representing the five other co-defendants, motioned to have my name removed from the injunction as there was no factual evidence to support my inclusion in the frivolous suit. Charles Bauer – the Concord-based lawyer hired by the “City of Keene”, was told he had 10days to respond.

Kenny Meola Plays Hard to Get

On August 6th police departments across the states held “national night out” to try to better community relations.

I stopped by the Keene police department. Present was the BEARCAT – which was brought to town last year despite the overwhelming pushback from townsfolks who said “Thanks but no tanks!”

Right now, just an hour or so to the north, so-claimed “public officials” in Concord are attempting to do the same.

But hey – at least some folks at the LENCO plant down in Pitsfield, MA have jobs right?

They’re staying busy cranking out these vehicles. Thanks to federal money from the misnamed Department of Homeland Security – BEARCATS are now in 300 towns.

A DHS grant – which, to be clear, is coin stolen from taxpayers – also provided a mobile command center to the Cheshire County sheriffs – the outfit now headed by former Keene police employee Eli Rivera.

I was hopeful that I could finally have a conversation with someone who has thus far, played hard to get since my time in Keene.

Despite a number of attempts to initiate a convo, or even just get a reciprocal “hello” or “good afternoon” Ken Meola has steadfastly refused to engage. Perhaps today, in public, things would be different.

Ed Burke Deems Ransom Levied By Lesley Collier Sound Despite Inability to Identify Victim

UPDATE

Jan. 9, 2014: http://www.copblock.org/44236/ransom-levied-then-rescinded/

_________________

Edward Burke says that I owe the “City of Keene” 15FNRs or else.

This, despite the fact that no victim could be pointed to by Keene police employee Lesley Collier, who back in March left a ransom note on my Tahoe.

Nor could Collier point to any property damage that I had caused or even a single complainant.

To be clear, the ransom Burke says I owe is demanded simply because I disobeyed a decree that I never signed, which was written by some strangers I never met.

Douglas, MA Taxpayers – Are You Happy Funding Patrick T. Foley’s Weekend Shopping in Keene?

Last Saturday, July 27th, 2013, Centurion and Garret (later joined by Jason Repsher) spotted a Crown Vic with MA plate 548J parked on the west side of Main Street.

Curious as to why the government vehicle would have crossed the arbitrary political boundary into the ‘shire, when a man exited Ye Goodie Shoppe and opened the door of the car he was questioned.

What do you think? Is it an appropriate use of taxpayer funds for Patrick T. Foley to drive 3 1/2 hours to pick up chocolates and other items?

Keene Property Owner Remains Undeterred Despite Ongoing Harassment from “Authorities”

Keene Cop Block invited Ian Freeman, a six -year inhabitant of Keene, NH, to share a bit about the ongoing harassment he’s faced from so-claimed “authorities” for his efforts to peacefully erode their claimed legitimacy.

In this video Freeman, host of the nationally syndicated Free Talk Live and blogger at FreeKeene.com and ShireSociety.com, among much else, touches on the latest iteration of threat levied at him before speaking candidly about his motivations and the real impact had as the peaceful community emerges.

Instead of cowering, Freeman, knowing full-well that he’s not harmed anyone, has opted for transparency. His actions have undoubtedly embolden others – both in and outside of the ‘shire – to see the gun in the room, and speak out as well.
