CopBlocker Wins Settlement, Pepper Sprayed and Assaulted on Camera – CopBlock Radio

Last night, CopBlock Radio spoke with Adam Rupeka, a CopBlocker who was arrested and pepper sprayed for flipping a cop the bird. Police beat him to gain Adam’s compliance, but he heroically remained calm and peaceful. He sets a good example by recording the interaction with multiple devices, live-streaming, following the golden rule, calmly asserting himself, and refusing to submit to arbitrary demands by badged individuals. Eventually Adam’s charges of “disorderly conduct” and “obstructing government administration” were thrown out, and instead he was awarded a settlement outside of court.

In this episode, Derrick J and DEO share the week’s craziest arrests and police brutality videos. Pete Eyre posted a short video offering 5 tips for protecting your kids from police violence. Half of Americans hate their police departments. A cop caught punching a pregnant veteran on video is cleared of wrongdoing. An armed off-duty cop was refused service at Chuck-E-Cheese. A crazy cop threatens to arrest a teenager for smiling. Finally, half a dozen members of the LAPD arrest a 16 year old kid for riding his bike without a helmet.
