Tomorrow (Thursday, Oct. 23) some good folks from the greater Denver Metro area will gather to discuss issues of police accountability over a bite, won’t you join us?Thursday, Oct. 24th, 7:00-9:00pm – sit-down dinner – 3 Margaritas, 6864 S Clinton St., Greenwood Village, CO
After an introduction by a longtime area inhabitant who’s concerned about the growing paramilitarism of police – specifically the targeting of dogs and youth, Juliet Piccone a lawyer who focuses on civil law/litigation, animal welfare/animal law, and veteran’s advocacy will share some thoughts, as will Pete Eyre, co-founder of CopBlock.org, to be followed by a conversation among those present.
The event costs $50 (all inclusive) – a three course meal with beverage and 20% gratuity, Cop Block gift bag for each attendee, and a small contribution to help fuel the Police Accountability Tour.

My time thus far in town with the Police Accountability Tour has been good – the meetup on Monday was solid and yesterday I cranked out a lot of work (a post on meshnets, Weinhaus, and a video from the Port of Oakland) and met up with solid folks downtown for the International Day Against Police Brutality.
The last time I passed through Denver, when on the road with Liberty On Tour, I had a really productive visit as well – save for the time I was put into a cage by J. Pinder and C. Pinder – employees of the Denver police outfit.
On that Sunday, August 29th, 2010, Ademo Freeman, myself, and about 10 others from the Greater Denver area were doing outreach to tailgaters at Invesco Field prior to a Broncos-Steelers game. It was going well – folks were really receptive – until some strangers with badges arrived…
It was claimed that I had interfered, disobeyed a lawful order, and disturbed the piece.
We weren’t having any of that.
After pushing back our departure date so we could reacquire our cameras that had been stolen (view this post to see a full, point-by-point recount of what unfolded, and how we got our stolen cameras back), Ademo followed-up and filed a complaint. That complaint was later sustained and the threats levied against us were dropped.
