CopBlock Radio this week covered the Cincinnati police using a taser on a man simply for wearing a mask. He was arrested, but the charges are unknown at this time. CopBlock.org’s own Ademo Freeman and Brian Sumner were there to record the scene.
Last night on CopBlock Radio, Ademo Freeman and Brian Sumner joined us to share their newest adventure: traveling across the country in MAC (Mobile Accountability for Cops). They will be meeting up with CopBlock chapters in over a dozen states in the next seven months. Follow their adventures at http://CopBlock.org/MAC
Derrick J, DEO, and Severin covered the week’s most important stories of police abuse and accountability featured on CopBlock.org. We started out with a video of two San Francisco cops chatting freely in a Happy Donut shop about how they plan to alter the video captured by their body-cams. Then they laugh about how their victim’s head explodes from their bullets. Ha-ha, right? Good thing one quick-thinking man surreptitiously recorded their disgusting conversation for all to hear.
Have you ever encountered a person who just LOVES law enforcers, no matter what evil they do? In this episode of CopBlock Radio, Derrick J, DEO, Severin, and Ademo share the funniest encounters with these people, called CopSuckers. We hypothesize that these individuals are blinded by an emotional attachment to a friend or family member in law enforcement. Any criticism of the institution or individuals is rejected without consideration because it is seen as an attack on them or their loved ones. This is collectivism at its worst — refusal to acknowledge that individuals are responsible for their actions no matter the uniform they wear. Fortunately, encounters with these people can be as funny as they are revealing. Enjoy some of the best ones in this video: CopSuckers (Long Version) Download Podcast
Last night CopBlock Radio spoke with Adam Rupeka, a CopBlocker who was arrested and pepper sprayed for flipping a cops the bird. Police beat him to gain Adam’s compliance, but he heroically remained calm and peaceful. He sets a good example by recording the interaction with multiple devices, live-streaming, following the golden rule, calmly asserting himself, and refusing to submit to arbitrary demands by badged individuals. Eventually Adam’s charges of “disorderly conduct” and “obstructing government administration” were thrown out, and instead he was awarded a settlement outside of court.
Was the curb stomp justified? Maybe. We can’t see the what happened before the video began, but what we can see is 14 men and women dressed in black and armed to the teeth, kicking and punching a one-legged homeless man. His bare ass hanging out and his face drooling on the brick sidewalk, he pleads with his attackers, “Please let go of me,” but his cries are unanswered. Fortunately a cadre of cop blockers and their video cameras capture the events that unfold, as the police scramble for justification of their horrendous actions. They set up a blockade to prevent recording and accountability.
DEO is arrested before the show for recording the police. He makes it back to his place in time enough to do most of the show and recap what happened. Also featured in this episode: remembering John Crawford III in a continent-wide day of protest, especially in Beavercreek, OH where he was killed. One activist broadcast messages with a laser onto the Walmart where police murdered John Crawford one year ago that day.
Chris Rietmann of Alstead New Hampshire volunteers as an Oath Keeper and stood guard outside of a US Army Recruiting Center as activism. His message was to promote responsible gun ownership and point out the senselessness of gun-free zones. They leave good people defenseless.
On this episode, we also speak with Severin about a DUI checkpoint in Bethlehem, PA. A man buys a full-page ad over a $15 parking ticket. A Michigan mom is arrested and jailed over an unpaid $100 dog license fee. Maggie Hassan, the Governor of New Hampshire, vetoed the Constitutional Carry bill that would have restored my self-defense right to discreet carry. There were also arrests in Liberland!
It was an honor to sit beside Lyn Ulbricht during this live interview at PorcFest 12 in New Hampshire. She is inspiring in her devotion to freeing her son Ross from the clutches of the government. Ross is in federal prison for life without parole because he created a website where people can do business over the internet. Like eBay. Only on his website, people sold pot, among other things. He was sentenced more harshly than Charles Manson for crimes involving no victims. His mother continues to appeal the government’s convictions and is seeking support.
Derrick J pleads Guilty to a parking ticket, but Judge Burke says “NO!” James Butler of Florida CopWatch joins. A Berlin, NJ woman was stabbed to death in her front driveway after police failed to issue her a gun permit in time. Steffon Josey-Davis is pardoned for the victimless “crime” of having a gun in New Jersey. Plus, Adam Rupeka’s charges are dropped! This episode also feature a new CopBlock Store commercial!
