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.

Ignorance of the BipCot is No Excuse | Freedom Feens

Published by:

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.

Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree

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 ) 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.)

Pirates on Bridge Ahead!

Published by:

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.

Reinforce these awesome people by moving to New Hampshire. Learn more at StateFreeProject.com

I Went CopBlocking and All I Got Were These Stupid Charges | CopBlock Radio

Published by:

This week several prominent CopBlockers were arrested for peaceful activism. CopBlock founder Ademo Freeman and compadre Brian Sumner were charged with FELONIES for using chalk outside of a law enforcer headquarters. Their charges were later lowered to misdemeanors for alleged “criminal mischief.” Isn’t it convenient that if law enforcers don’t like your message (for example #BlueLivesMurder), they can just kidnap you, put you in a cage, demand money to release you, and claim that your so-called First Amendment “protected” activity is a crime?

Murderous Cops Get Paid Big Bucks | CopBlock Radio

Published by:

Last night CopBlock Radio started off with some good news! Passengers on a Boston bus decided to take out the cell phones and record video of a law enforcer using excessive force on a woman being arrested for petty theft. Because they decided not only to record, but to intervene peacefully, they were able to calm the crazed law enforcer down and de-escalate the situation. You know–what the cop is supposed to do! He pulled out his gun on the unarmed woman, but the passengers weren’t having it. They repeatedly shouted, “PUT DOWN THE GUN!” until the law enforcer complied. Victory! You too can make a difference. Recording evil is not enough. Good men must also DO something. Speaking up against injustice in the moment is a peaceful way to stop evil while maintaining the moral high ground. Had any of these passengers used force, it would have escalated the situation and likely would have resulted in some injuries, if not deaths.

CopBlocker Wins Settlement, Pepper Sprayed and Assaulted on Camera – CopBlock Radio

Published by:

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.

Gangster Cop Stomps One-Legged Homeless Man – CopBlock Radio

Published by:

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.

Ferguson Riot Police Arrest Reporters

Originally posted to PeaceNewsNow.com:

“Wesley is one of the finest young reporters I’ve come across. He has solid reporting skills, a dogged determination, good instincts, and a strong ethical compass,” – Gregory Lee, President of the National Association of Black Journalists

First, shooting an unarmed black teen and leaving him bleeding in the street for hours. Second, summoning military occupation-style stormtrooper tanks and weapons. Third, keeping the names of all the police involved secret from the public, and now finally arresting a journalist from the Washington Post.

The militarization of police. Once “civil servants” in blue, now an occupying force in black or military camo.

In a late-night article to the Washington Post, the journalist recounts the story of his arrest. He was thrown into a soda machine and handcuffed for not following orders fast enough. Documenting the occupation of a militarized police state can be risky. More cameras on and ready, please!

Video here.

Solution?

Be the change you wish to see in the world. Carry a camera with you everywhere you go, and be ready to use it on police. If arrested, follow Wesley’s example: remain calm, and be polite. Everything will be alright.
