Cop Block is a decentralized organization made up of a diverse group of individuals united by their shared belief that, “Badges Don’t Grant Extra Rights.”
This podcast is not officially sanctioned. I am an independent individual and the opinions I express on this podcast are my own. My name is Derrick J Freeman. I have been arrested 5 times for victimless crimes. I’ve been CopBlocking since 2011. This podcast features stories from the front page of CopBlock.org.
A law enforcer encourages people to “pop a cap” in harmless random strangers.
A cop acts like a gang member when he threatens a man for not making timely payments to his gang’s bosses. Fortunately, a copblocker caught the interaction on camera, and when the cop noticed him, he decided to stop threatening the man. The man recording saved his fellow man from becoming the victim of a kidnapping.
A middle school student is charged with larceny over a 65 cent milk. There will even be a trial over it. The middle schooler receives milk provided by his community, but he forgot to grab it and put it on his tray when going through line. He returned to get another milk, and a cop grabbed him by the arm. The boy pulled away, and the man got rough with him. The school offered to reduce the punishment to keep it out of the courts, but the boy wants to push forward with the trial because he knows he is innocent and shouldn’t be punished at all.
CopBlocker arrested! Charged with “obstructing a peace officer.” What a joke! Watch the video.
Finally, the best example of how the camera is the best defensive tool in your arsenal: a cop threatens a man and invents a lie to justify hassling him, but the cop is caught when he realizes the man was recording him. He leaves angry, and his victim leaves unharmed.
Interview with Ed “NJWeedman” Forchion – His restaurant was raided by Trenton police, and his security cam footage stolen, but he’s not giving up that easily. He’s back and open for business with a sign that says FUCK THE POLICE!
DEO is released from jail tomorrow thanks to donations of $1000 that were raised in 3 hours. An amazing swell of support erupted when Ademo Freeman announced the judge in his case offered a ransom to release DEO until his appeals.
Massachusetts police chased a driver into New Hampshire and then beat him live on the news, even though he was on the ground with his hands in the air. Don’t worry, though — they’re investigating themselves.
MWD, Derrick J Freeman, and Jeremy Henggeler celebrate Derrick’s return and wait on the last year to Alpha Centauri. They talk about cops that don’t read licenses before clicking on them and San Francisco’s first open air urinal. MWD lays down mad science on how the Internet is doing it wrong, including self-contradictory emails and demanding emails from strangers about branding.
While Mark Edge endorses the Trump Dollar, the Feens yak about You and the Police by Boston T. Party, and how that book inspired the CopBlock movement.
Then a cop – (Officer Mike Bires @iSocialCop) who is a self-styled “Social Media Director” – violates the BipCot license to use and review Cell411. Hilarity and mockery ensue. (And his crappy bad-audio podcast making fun of Cell411 is here.)
Armed men wearing badges were parked on the bridge in Manchester, New Hampshire. Friday, April 27, 2016. They used bright lights to stun, mesmerize, and intimidate passing travelers into pulling over. Once stopped, the armed men demanded documents and investigated their victims. Finally, they demanded money from the drivers backed by threats of kidnapping.
A watchdog group from Manchester organized a creative advertising effort to warn drivers of the danger ahead. With laser lights, reflective displayboard, and LED programmable signs, they stood by the bridge and informed those passing that it is their last chance to avoid the pirates.
Some went bar hopping, informing patrons of the extortion trap and offered cards with tips for interacting with the badged criminals.
This went from 10pm to 2am. All night, people expressed their appreciation as they passed and diverted their routes. I estimate that 100 cars were saved.
This week on CopBlock Radio we discuss Copblockers on trial, including representatives from Texas, Allentown, Carbon County And Lehigh Valley CopBlock groups all seeing a judge It feels like the state has targeted those that film police or exercise their rights. The campaign being run by police calls for jail and violence to be used against those that would questions them.
Last night on CopBlock Radio, DEO called in from jail, a hot CopBlocking Mama makes a stand for a better future, and CopBlock founder Ademo Freeman reveals that the world’s largest gang…is in your town!
Regular CopBlock Radio cohost DEO was made a political prisoner by a gang of people calling themselves “the state of Ohio.” They intend to keep him isolated in a concrete cage for 240 days as punishment for disobedience to authority. You can read more about that here. He calls into the show in this episode. Also, some guy who wore a dress to work died this week. People are upset, not because he died, but because another cross-dresser will take his place for life.
