Don’t Take the Plea Outreach

Published by:

I stayed up last night editing videos and working on the site, so when 7am came around, I decided to shower and go to the District Court to hand out “Don’t Take the Plea Deal” flyers. I got to hand out 15 today, including 1 to a member of law enforcement (who requested “the new one”). It took about 45 minutes of standing on the first floor of City Hall from 8am to 8:45 when folks stop trickling in.

Doing “Don’t Take the Plea Deal” outreach not only feels good because I am giving people valuable information, but because I get to make a friendly impression on Keene’s bureaucrats. I received compliments on my outfit, got friendly waves, and even saw “judge Burke.” I think it’s valuable to show these bureaucrats that I am human. And not only am I human, but I’m an especially friendly person when I’m not being detained and coerced by men with guns.

Hopefully more people who receive tickets for victimless crimes will refuse the plea deals, clog the judicial system, and inspire law enforcement to exercise discretion when administering tickets.

If you haven’t already seen these incredible flyers, check them out at the bottom of this blog post.

Licence to Carry Concealed Denied – I Appeal

Recently I received a piece of mail from a Mr. Goodchild, a “Detective” from the Keene Police Department. This “Detective” stated that he denied my application for a concealed carry license because possessing a firearm or ammunition allegedly violates my bail conditions. I walked into the Keene Police Department today with Ademo Freeman of CopBlock.org to bring him copies of my bail conditions. Video and documents soon to come.

Great day for liberty activists, bad day for Keene City bureaucrats.

This morning I met with 4 other activists to inform the “City of Keene” that we would all be taking our traffic tickets to court. It took an hour at the Keene Police Department just to inform them and get court dates (mine is Jan. 5th). In order to oblige the people calling themselves the state to waste more of their time, 3 of us filed for discovery for our parking tickets.

The total fines attempting to be collected by those who call themselves the City of Keene is roughly $200. How much will it cost them? Consider paying somebody at the police department or the clerk’s office some time and energy and resources looking up case files, making copies, assembling them and shipping them. Then you’d have to arrange for a prosecutor, a judge, secretaries, and clerks to schedule a block of time dedicated to each individual issue. Agents of the state also have to pay the meter maid who ticketed me for appearing in court as a witness rather than doing their job of “collecting revenue.”

Despite this process being a part of THEIR system, the bureaucrats serving us today did not seem delighted as I would have imagined. After all, they are integral cogs in the statist machine and should LOVE the opportunity for more court cases, as that would imply justice is being done. But they weren’t happy.

And I think that’s a good thing. That’s why I’m going to return tomorrow with another Keeniac activist who is taking 5 parking tickets to court. For her, that means an hour in court and some time preparing. For agents of the state, that’s more time working on collecting useless bits of info and scheduling time and paying payrolls. And after all that, even if court decides in favor of the prosecutor, agents of the state STILL won’t collect any money because many of these activists would rather serve their fine with community service or jail time.

Aggressing against peaceful drivers does not pay in Keene. What was intended to collect $5 of revenue for the state in the form of a parking ticket now becomes a 4 figure expense for the state. When will the police learn

How ya like them apples, Keene bureaucrats?

I am the luckiest guy in the world.  I live at the Shire and am constantly surrounded by amazing people.

Tonight at the Keene Activist Center, TalleyTV informed me that Amanda Bouldin was arrested for not producing ID.  Within 4 minutes of her leaving a voice-message on Porcupine411, activists began grabbing cameras, calling/driving to the police department, writing blogposts, customizing “Free Amanda” posters, and updating Facebook walls.  An hour or two later and we’re celebrating her release, informing our friends and leaving messages on Porcupine411.

What a dream.  I love my voluntary family.
