Are you tired of the POLICE STATE??
Want to be part of a network actively advancing the idea that,
“Badges Don’t Grant Extra Rights?”
If so, JOIN the “CopBlock Network” today.
What is the CopBlock Network (CBN)?
The CopBlock Network consist of individuals who believe “Badges Don’t Grant Extra Rights.” Each one of us has committed ourselves to that idea and together we’re determined to take that message to the highest level possible. Below are four roles that CopBlock Network participants can choose to dedicate their time and skill sets to. You don’t have to choose just one role – most of us play a few – but it’s probably best to start with one if you’re completely new to CopBlocking.
The purpose of the CopBlock Network is to connect active CopBlockers, who advocate that “Badges Don’t Grant Extra Rights”, into a Network that creates content, educational materials, provides assistance to those of police wrongdoings and more. By each of us choosing a role (of our strongest skill set(s)) we can be more effective at highlighting the police state and informing people about how they can be protected from it.
Local CopBlock Groups can create more content knowing that CBN Bloggers (or video editors) are on standby to assist them. While those on the streets can be more effective while making content by distributing outreach material (provided thanks to funding from donors and great rates from LibertyStickers.com) to those they interact with. When you combine raw content creation with polished content creation (idea into blog post, raw video into polished video) and provide each with the tools to further their respective areas (ie; funding, not only from donors but ad revenue and the CopBlock.org Store) then we’ll succeed at reaching more people.
Ultimately, I – Ademo Freeman – will take responsibility for the funds and will personally provide donors and any benefactors of the network with a breakdown of funds raised each month. I’ll also provide a short report about what we plan to do, what we’ve done and what we can improve on (or are working to improve on).
With that being said, read over the four roles below and join The CopBlock Network today.
- Create Content: Whether you use the CopBlock.org submission tab or become a CopBlock Network Contributor creating police related content is a role at CBN that’s never “FULL.” Bring your writing, video or creative content ideas into CBN.
*content creators can get a share of ad revenue from their post and/or see an increase in their already monetized outlets; like YouTube; for more information contact Ademo here*
- Direct Action: The direct action aspect of the network speaks to three very important areas; Keyboard Warriors, Street Team and Call Floods.
Keyboard Warriors: Are those whose skill sets fall into the computer tech area. Whether that be spreading CopBlock content on social media outlets, researching stories/individuals, creating graphics (like memes or otherwise) and/or social media awareness campaigns. If your skill set is in this area sign up and start “networking” with other CBN Keyboard Warriors and CBN Contributors today.
Possible tasks of Keyboard Warriors: share CopBlock content to Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, YouTube and/or other social networks. Get CBN stories and videos onto more Facebook Pages, UpVoted at Reddit and so on. This can be done by folks who have other pages and channels, or by those who can commit to sharing the content directly from the site regularly to their own social media platforms.
(Connect with Joshua[at]copblock.org for more details)
Street Team: Do you go out and film the police on a regular basis? Then this is what you’d want to do. Street Teams capture raw (or edited) footage from the streets to CopBlock.org, or a CBN Contributor, for polishing (editing of video or creation of blog post) and/or publication to the site.
Street team participants will be shown how to monetize their content, be provided with educational material and (at times) compensated for gathering video for overarching, breaking or targeted content.
Call Floods: Consist of folks dedicated to calling police departments for comments regarding police employee actions. All too often the police will shield their own, withhold information or simply refuse to provide transparency. Call Flood Team(s) will be there to keep asking the questions and help expose the police for their relaxed nature towards their own.
Recording these calls is highly encouraged to not only encourage others to do the same but also show folks how unwilling police are to speak about their own.

- Donate: Many of the things listed above come with a cost and to cover those we rely, in part, on donations. Below are some ideas for what we would do with additional funding. As mentioned above, all donors are provided a monthly cash flow report of all funds raised and how they are used. Giving each donor a fully transparent record of CBN funds so they can see for themselves where the money is used. You can choose between ONE-Time donations (see PP button below) and a CBN monthly subscription donation.
*NOTE: ONE TIME donations are not included in the Monthly report, those are for the subscription donors only**
- W.Y.W: What’s W.Y.W? Whatever You Want. Just because the CopBlock Network exists it doesn’t mean CopBlock is not the decentralized (no central leadership or president) organization it was founded to be. You can still start your own group, use CopBlock graphics/logos, film the police and whatever else you can think of. Feel free to use the CopBlock.org submit tab to share your content too. All we’re trying to do with CBN is maximize our potential by working as a team.
