Today I left Keene in the Shire and arrived in Washington, D.C. I used AG Services (Darryl W. Perry’s Agorist Cab services) to Brattleboro, Vermont, where I hopped aboard an Amtrak train headed for D.C. I tweeted while I was on the train. It ended up being an eventful ride. I arrived over 3 hours late after the train’s motor broke down a few times and was eventually replaced. Several times, the interruptions occurred without any explanation by Amtrak staff. I was very disappointed, and tweeted to let them know. @Amtrak responded to my tweet and directed me to call customer service. I did, and I was given a $100 travel voucher good for one year. Yay! That really helped resolve the issue for me.
To audition to be on the writing team, e-mail me 2 comedy news stories at 9AM on September 19, 21, 24, and 25. I’ll e-mail you back at 10am asking you to flesh out the rest of one of the stories to send back to me at noon. I can’t wait to hear from you!
I’ve been having difficulty uploading videos to Fr33manTV lately because the memory card I bought for my camera is too high tech for the computers at my disposal. I’ve ordered a new laptop which can handle my current needs and it will be here in a week. Please look forward to more frequent videos and updates. I’ve been documenting the process and look forward to showcasing my time at Keene’s Community Kitchen for your enjoyment. In the meantime, check out my “Raw” video channel, Fr33manTVRaw
Today I finally sold my car. I’ve been trying to sell it for a month, and finally it sold today. “Rocco” from New Jersey was a very happy buyer. We took it for a test drive, and he loved it. Of course, it has no problems, and he got it for a total steal, so of course he was happy.
My ’98 Monte Carlo has been through a lot during the short time I had it. Here’s a playlist of videos featuring the ol’ Monte:
Today (Aug 7, 2012) I called the Keene Police Department to check the status of my Concealed Carry License application. I applied for the license on July 20. It’s my understanding that NH law requires that the local police department “shall-issue” all valid applicants within 14 days (10 business days) of applying. Applicants must call and ask for an answer–they will not call you. However, if a person has NOT been approved, they will mail that person with an explanation as to why they were denied, and they must do that within 14 days. The clerk (Pat) at the records department said that my application was not in the “approved” pile, and that the man in charge of applications (Michael Goodchild) was on vacation until Aug. 20. She gave me his voicemail, and I left a message. In his voicemail recording, he directs callers to contact Jim McLaughlin with any issues. When I phoned Jim McLaughlin and told him I was audio recording, he told me he did not consent to being recorded and redirected my call to Michael Goodchild’s voicemail again. The third time I called, I explained to the clerk what had happened and asked to speak with someone who would talk to me on the record. After waiting on hold for a few minutes, Pat returned and said that the “Chief of Police” Ken Meola told her that “Captain” Costa would call me back today regarding this issue. Very curious…

I’m going through the toughest time I’ve experienced on earth. I’m sifting through all the court paperwork I’ve received over the last year, and it weighs about 2 lbs, literally. I somehow acquired 11 different charges against the State of New Hampshire without involving a single victim. It fills me with petrifying fear to think that each charge carries between 30-365 days.
I have 4 trials coming up in the next 2 months, and as I see it, my greatest hope is to reach out and touch the jury, connect with them, and show them that I should be free. In some cases, however, there is no jury. Sometimes times the judge is corrupt and even under investigation for impeachment.
I am doing my best to turn this into a positive learning experience from which I can benefit while also helping others. I’ve been preparing a video about the charges hanging over my head, and I’ll be sure to share it here when it is finished.
For now, dear reader, thank you for your concern. I wish I knew of a way that others can help, but this unfortunately seems to be a battle I alone must fight.
I’ll be representing myself and seeking the assistance of a public defender for the purposes of helping me negotiate with the prosecutors and to field questions about Legal Land.
A policewoman in Hollis, New Hampshire thought it was the right thing
to do to take out her pepper spray and launch it unannounced into the
eyes of peaceful 21-year-old Eric Geller, who was visiting his alma
mater to have discussions with his former professors.
In my recent interview with Eric, he says that he can’t imagine how an
imaginary entity, “The State of New Hampshire” is able to be a victim
of his peaceful actions. He also says that he feels he has the right
to stand on public property so long as he’s not hurting anyone or
getting in the way, which he says he wasn’t. Eric is facing 3
misdemeanor A charges: Criminal Trespass (being on school property),
Disorderly Conduct (being on school property), and Resisting Arrest
(going limp), and faces up to 3 years in jail plus $3,000 in fines.
His story is particularly interesting because of the recent
militarization of local police and the growing state resistance to
members of the public treating public property as if it is for public
Here’s a clip from my recent interview with Eric.
Agents of the state certainly have a lot of nerve to claim that they
were acting to protect an imaginary entity, The State of New
Hampshire, and that Eric somehow insulted the peace and dignity of
this imaginary entity by peacefully standing on property for which he
is forced to pay.
It certainly has not been argued that Eric has infringed anyone else’s
rights, but how will agents of the state pay him restitution for the
harm they inflicted on him that day by attacking and caging him?
What penalties will this police woman face for her negligence and
disregard for student safety when she unnecessarily sprayed this
chemical weapon? She will claim she was protecting student safety,
but is introducing a chemical weapon which is banned by the
international rules of war into a school the way to achieve maximum
To those of you sitting on the fence about this issue: A young man
was standing on property for which his parents paid, hurting no one.
Unprovoked, a woman inflicted immense disorienting pain into his eyes
and locked him in a cage for ransom. If you wouldn’t be willing to do
these things yourself, then I posit that you have a responsibility and
an obligation to speak out against these actions. That means using
your wallet as well as your voice. If the police aren’t working for
you, don’t pay them!

Eric seems to be pretty liberty-minded in every matter which I discussed with him, so I look forward to hearing more as this story develops. He is new to all this legal business, and I would like to offer my support in any way I can, even if it’s just attending his trial. He hasn’t decided whether or not he will take the issue to court or accept a plea offer, so maybe if others reach out to him, he will know he will not be fighting alone. Continue reading
