State Representative Gadys Johnsen tries to Deny 1st Amendment Right and Right to Record Public official
On Sunday the 19th Keene Cop Blocks JP Freeman was at a gathering with local activists at an event at Local Burger on Main Street Keene NH when he saw a Police SUV pull over a Motorist near by . When he started capturing the interaction he noticed Officer Leslie Collier conducting the Traffic Stop. Gladys sponsored a bill requiring NH State Police to wear Lapel Cameras in all interactions with the public . So I ask why was she so rude to being recorded and why did she try to deny the right to record and the right to the 1st Amendment . She even asked the Police Officer to do something about the CopBlocker capturing the interaction . All our public officials need to be held accountable and this Representative fraudulently representing the public’s interest was definitely held accountable .

UPDATE – Emily Clogston of Warren NH who was hit by off duty Sate Police Commander of Troop F has passed away from her injuries sustained in the crash . After numerous calls to Chief of Police Pinson of Lisbon NH Monday July 13th and today they are still insisting on dodging questions and being extremely combative on the Phone . Monday i was threatened by Desk SGT Mckinley who i told was being recorded he forcefully tried to intimidate me and said i had no right . I told the misinformed and poorly trained SGT . That he had NO EXPECTATION of privacy because he was a public official . He told me I had no expectation of privacy and hung the phone up angrily and unprofessionally .
He was advised of the United States Appeals Court decision Glik case and he denied anything about it and impeded my first amendment right and violated the 8th article of the NH State Constitution .
Today I tried filing an internal complaint on Sgt Mckinley to his only superior which is Chief Pinson . He threatened me , yelled at me and said if I show up in his Town with a camera I will be tossed in Jail .
Note , Chief Pinson friend of Lt. Todd Landry the troop commander who committed Negligent Homicide , is the very one who investigated the scene and concluded no wrong doing. Chief Pinson was in violation of the Conflict of Interest and fraternization policies of the Professional Training and Standards of NH . Call floods need to happen to this corrupt Police Dept. and their negligent cover up to give justice to Emily and due process with full disclosure and media coverage .
A full complaint was filed on the Police Dept of Lisbon and the Chief with the NH Dept of Justice .
Chief Pinson, Deputy Director

Todd Landry a State Police Commander of Troop F hit an an 18 year old girl on a skateboard two days ago in front of the Lisbon Police Station. The 18 year old Emily Clogston of Warren NH was critically injured by the hit. After going to the Scene I noticed differences in the story put out by Lisbon Police Chief verse the crash sight itself .
It seems to me that Lt. Landry was traveling too fast around the corner and also was not paying attention to where he was going . I also want to point out Lt. Landry is friends with Lisbon Police Chief Scott Pinson .
No breathalizer test or sobriety checks where done , nor did Lt. Landry get his Phone taken for evidence to show if he was distracted on the New Hnads free Law that was started July 1st of this year. My skeptisizm comes from a long back ground of dealing with Police on weekly basis for three years.
Police will cover up for one another and this girl that is fighting for her life deserves answers to why she is being named at fault over a cover up from badge friends.
I also want to note that Troopers from his own unit showed up first , probably to cover up what they can before an objective investigation can be done ..
and Bias story lead by the locals .

For ongoing Pumpkin Fest riot coverage, please visit Free Keene.
Alex Moushey’s report from the streets during the Pumpkin Fest 2014 riots reveal why the situation did not improve with the police’s unnecessarily violent tactics.
Rather than only arresting people who were causing violence and destruction, the police were targeting people crossing arbitrary lines and partying on private property. In this excellent ten-minute video, Alex is right there when cops create all kinds of unnecessary mayhem: (click links below to jump to that part if you are short on time)
- They shoot pepperballs at party houses on Winchester St – completely unnecessary – those people were on private property and not in the road. It’s arguable that pepperballs are useful to clear a crowd who won’t leave a street and indeed, blocking streets is one of the reasons the “disorderly conduct” statute exists, but the people at these houses were just enjoying themselves. The use of pepperballs in this situation is just aggressive.
- Guy walking down sidewalk is violently arrested by a throng of cops – This guy is literally just walking down the sidewalk. He’s hasn’t threatened anyone and is not blocking the street. The reason he can’t walk down the sidewalk is, well, because the men with guns say so. The reason the cops decide to jump him like he’s strapped with a bomb is, because they can.
It’s behavior like this from police that alienates them from average people. This is why Cop Block is so popular on campus. Here are the students’ sensible responses to the violence that was visited upon them by the police:
“We’re not terrorists. We love America. We just like to drink! Don’t shoot us!”
There’s a reason why the young ladies in the video think that the police are “pieces of shit” because they hurt their peaceful friends – every weekend, not just Pumpkin Fest. If all the police did was arrest people who hurt others or destroy property, it wouldn’t be as big a deal if they cleared some streets with pepperballs, but the adrenaline-hyped cops seem to have a penchant for escalating a situation. There’s more footage showing police attacking people for walking peacefully long after the riots had subsided – I’ll upload that soon enough. Stay tuned here to Free Keene for the latest on the Pumpkin Fest Riots of 2014.
