A college student in Commie-fornia is in trouble for recording audio in her own dorm room. An Uber drive was arrested for recording, protestors in Pennsylvania won a victory against aggressive law enforcers, and an activist in Texas catches law enforcers breaking into his car!
What is jail like? What should you know going in? How should you interact with guards and other inmates? Is there porn? All these questions and more were answered by a rotating panel of guest hosts on last night’s episode of CopBlock Radio. We usually focus on Police Accountability topics, but we took a break from our normal routine to spend some time sharing our collective knowledge on a topic that every CopBlocker is sure to encounter: Jail. I wish this weren’t the case, but in a police state, even someone who is exercising a so-called “protected” right can be wrongfully arrested and caged by a badged agent of the state.
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?
