CopBlock on Every Corner | COPBLOCK RADIO

Published by:

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.

Camera Still More Effective Than Guns | COPBLOCK RADIO

Published by:

What is CopBlock about? How do I connect with other people who want to record law enforcers? Can force be justified? How can I share my own stories to CopBlock.org?

Grand Forks North Dakota enforcers shoot an unarmed man, then try to destroy the evidence.

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.

We also listened to a band called Bear vs Shark.

21st Century Security is Peer-to-Peer

Published by:

I keep one in my car and one on my keychain. In an emergency, like being pulled over or witnessing an arrest, I press it and dozens of first responders are alerted. They instantly know my emergency and location.

This is 21st-Century security. With beauty and simplicity that seems inspired by Apple, the Cell 411 Panic Button might be better-named “the Relax Button.” Finally I can relax knowing that in an emergency, I don’t need ten types of hand-eye coordination to alert first responders. One press of a button is all it takes.

cell-411-panic-button

My friend Link posted about it to Facebook:

“One of the coolest features is that it’s drop sensitive. Do you know how many thousands of people pay for subscriptions to emergency button services so someone will come help them up when they fall down? And now they can have that functionality for free in a way that calls people they know and trust who won’t automatically take them to the ER and drive up medical costs just to cover their asses!”

The buttons can be purchased for $25 each, and they come with accessories for easy every-day carry. Here is how the retailer describes the device:

The Cell 411 Panic Button connects to your Cell 411 application running on Android or iOS smartphone wirelessly over Bluetooth, providing users with a quick and easy way to alert your friends, neighbors, caregivers and loved ones in the event of an emergency. It can be carried in your pocket or bag or worn on the wrist or around the neck with the available accessories.
After pressing the Cell 411 panic button, an emergency alert will be sent out to the chosen cell or group of friends you configured. Your GPS location will be sent to your Cell 411 friends in real time, so they can come and assist you with turn by turn direction.

NH Pink Pistols Grow in Firepower

Published by:

The NH Pink Pistols, an LGBT-themed firearms group, practiced shooting targets at Granite State Indoor Range in Hudson yesterday. 8 people came to shoot. Last month there were 5 of us, and the previous month only 4. The range was clean, the staff was friendly, and the range was easy to use. Apparently the facility is less than 2 years old. We each shot individual targets for practice, but we also played a game of Battleship using a creatively designed target. Afterwards, some attended a Liberty Meetup in Nashua, but I had to run — I had a date at Street — a Portsmouth restaurant that now accepts bitcoin!

New, unexpected people came to this event — they must have heard about it from Facebook. The NH chapter of Pink Pistols is “officially closed” because we don’t have board members and bureaucracy to the satisfaction of the national group. I will wait for a few more successful meetups before I re-establish the group as “official”. I had a fun time, we tried out each other’s firearms, we got some practice with our own, and some even learned techniques to improve their shooting. If you’re LGBTQ and live in the Shire, please join the NH Pink Pistols Facebook Page for updates on our group and the location of our next shoot.

Here is video from yesterday’s event

The Coast is Queer! | CALL TO FREEDOM

Published by:

This week a guy stopped in front of my house in his truck and took my photo. As he drove away, he said, “The Coast Is Queer.” I’m not exactly sure what any of it means. I shared this story on Facebook, and Will Coley responded that there was an academic paper by the same name. He had me on his show to chat about it. At one point, his mic drops, and I am left to riff about freedom and life and awesomeness. But Will returns to save the day and finish out the segment, closing on a point about how the media colors our perception of people and groups, like gays or muslims. We all fight stereotypes.

Another Small Victory for NHexit

Published by:

I organized an NHexit event in Portsmouth this Friday called “NH Independence Celebration“. People from Keene, Manchester, Nashua, and Portsmouth attended. Dave Ridley of New Hampshire’s #2 YouTube channel shot video from a safe distance across the street. Shire Dude live-streamed video while making commentary and chatting with curious passers by. One person waved a blue flag with a peace sign. Another waved a yellow “Don’t Tread on Me” flag and a sign that read, “I LOVE AMERICA, NOT D.C.” Some conducted a 3-question poll about secession from a random sampling of Portsmouth’s downtown. Music by The Beatles played from a small portable speaker. In total the event was 1 hour.

Poll respondents were asked to read 3 short statements and rate their level of agreement or disagreement with each one. 17 people participated. The results are as follows (click image to enlarge):
