Victimless Crime Spree Makes Nashua Patch

Today I was sent an article from the Nashua Patch in which I was featured. Thanks to Keene activist Darryl W. Perry for bringing this to my attention. Some excerpts from the article below, plus video:

But getting back to the video, it’s an eclectic, borderline schizophrenic mashup of scenic New Hampshire shots interspersed with repeated links to “101 Reasons to Move to NH” and video footage of people being chased by police officers and arrested, with reference to “Victimless Crime Spree,” a feature-length documentary chronicling Free State activist Derrick J Freeman’s* “exciting first year of activism in The Shire,” which he describes as “540 days in jail for dancing, smoking cannabis, going to court, and riding a bike” while living in Keene.

*Of note: Last week Freeman, who has an apparent affinity for Hobbit allusions, left “The Shire” (NH) for “Mordor” (Washington, D.C.), on a “self-imposed exile” from the Free State following a 60-day jail stint. He’s off on a new mission, which he will be chronicling on his blog site, Live Free or Dance, if you are at all interested in knowing more.

Here’s the video:

DerrickJ Ends The Fed DC 2012

Today I went with the Adam Vs The Man crew to Washington, D.C. (Mordor). I went in order to take video of a rally. Adam Kokesh went to speak on a megaphone and help MC the event. He led a march down from the Treasury Building to the Federal Reserve, where about 60 people marched and chanted, “END THE FED, END THE DEBT, END THE WARS.” Upon arrival at the Federal Reserve building, activists lined up to face the building along its front and symbolically turned their backs in an “about face.” Some activists burned dollar bills in front of the building as security guards watched, hopelessly outnumbered by a crowd of peaceful people armed to the teeth with video cameras.

Here’s some video of a speech I gave about living freer by moving to the Shire today:

Here’s all of the raw video I shot that day:

We came back from the house later and made some killer ribs:

The Travel Plan Begins

Hey All! We’re getting close to the beginning of the Exile, but first a visit to the Shire!!

View a map of my route by clicking here or by scrolling down to the bottom of this post.

Well, I’ve got my route planned out for the Post-Jail Pre-Exile Tour! I’ll be leaving on a MegaBus from Philadelphia around 1pm Sunday afternoon (Aug 12) and arriving in Boston at 8:30pm. From there I will take the Boston Express bus from South Station in Boston to exit 5 in Londonderry, NH, where I will be picked up by Dale Everett of Flaming Freedom and be brought to the Anarchy In Your Head Studios. There I will sleep in preparation for the next day’s “Circus” (Ademo’s trial).

I will stay in Manchester Sunday night (Aug 12) through Wednesday (Aug 15) to produce videos and guest-host on Flaming Freedom.

I will leave the Shire Wednesday (Aug 15) morning at 5:30am via the Boston Express bus and travel to South Station in Boston, then transfer to a MegaBus at 8:15am. That MegaBus will have me arrive in Philadelphia at 3:30pm.

I will stay with family in Philadelphia Wednesday night before leaving at 6:00pm for Washington, DC to attend Lemonade (& Raw Milk!) Freedom Day at the Reflecting Pool. I’ll arrive in DC at around 9:30pm on Thursday (Aug 16) and will be staying with Super-Activist Eddie Free during the weekend-long conference.

What comes next is yet to be decided, but I will likely be returning to Philadelphia on the 19th to start getting interviews with those active in the various liberty communities of that area. Check back daily at LibertyOnTour.com for the latest on the “Freeman in Exile” tour!

Thanks for following!

Keene PD Denies License AGAIN??

What do the Keene Police have to hide?

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…

The law regarding Concealed Carry Licenses can be found here.
