Camera Still More Effective Than Guns | COPBLOCK RADIO

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.

Man Who Attacked Me Sentenced in Court

Rafael Hernandez is one of two guys who attacked me on July 31, 2014 outside the Cheshire County Courthouse. I was recording from the sidewalk when the group of thuggish friends surrounded me, and threw my camera and cell phone on the ground. He pled guilty to the misdemeanor charge of Criminal Mischief and sentenced this Thursday, January 29, 2015.

The court’s orders were: 1) He must pay me restitution for my broken camera battery ($28.94), 2) he must not have contact with me for one year, and 3) he will have a sentence of 60 days in jail suspended for one year on the condition of good behavior.

Recording Bad Cops Outside Jail

Screen Shot 2014-07-26 at 3.39.55 PMThis Friday was an eventful night. First, a man was arrested for honking his horn in support of activists. Then, my friends and I are threatened with arrest while trying to bail him out. He’s now sitting in jail for the weekend, and his car was impounded. The tow truck man accepted an offer by an activist to pay to tow the guy’s car to his home, but the police threatened to revoke the tow truck man’s contract with the city if he did.

The whole idea about police is that “society” gives up some rights and freedoms to a small group of people in order to gain some safety. The problem is that the people who are willing to give up their freedoms are already well behaved, and the people who behave badly are attracted to power. This arrangement turns a populations of good people into easy prey for tyrants, knowingly or unknowingly. Illustrated here:
