Victimless Crime Spree Makes Nashua Patch

Published by:

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:

Derrick J’s Last Appearance on ShireTV

Published by:

Today was huge: It began with the “Criminal Trespass” trials of Ian Freeman and Kelly Voluntaryist. They were charged with Criminal Trespass back in February when I was also charged for allegedly being on Superior Court property without having been given permission by the Sheriff. The end result of the trial is that the date was postponed to November 14th at 9am in District Court in UnfreeKeene, New Hampshire.

Here’s some video from that day in court:

Also!

Today I appeared on ShireTV to discuss the premiere of my new documentary, Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree. I was also able to add some commentary to the topics discussed on today’s episode. It was a blast being back in the CheshireTV studios where FreeKeeneTV was once produced. Because my membership to CheshireTV is no longer valid, I appeared as a “guest” and was not permitted to assist in the setup or breakdown of the equipment. It was a great episode featuring FreeKeene anchor Anarcho-Ali and a new(ish) anchor, James Cleaveland, a hardcore Keene activist who focusses on CopBlocking. Also appearing as a guest on today’s episode was Kelly Voluntaryist, who came on the show to talk about the trial she had earlier that morning.

Here’s the video plus some behind the scenes elements:

Live Free Or Dance Trial: Kelly Voluntaryist took an opportunity to shame Michael Kopcha of the Keene Police Department when, during the viewing of video evidence in which the public servant pepper sprays a nonviolent handcuffed man, she storms out of the courtroom and calls him a monster.
