Marc Stevens’ Habeas Petition for Ademo Freeman of CopBlock.org
by Marc Stevens originally posted to MarcStevens.net

UPDATE (JULY 23rd):
The post “Journalist Striving for Accountability Faces Two Decades in Prison” goes live on Cop Block about the 21-years he’s threatened with for asking questions of public officials about the actions of Darren Murphy, employed by Manchester PD, who slammed a students head off a table in October, 2011.

UPDATE (July 18th) via FreeKeene.com:
Ademo update: He is in the jail’s privileged unit and is getting up an hour earlier than other prisoners to clean the dayroom. They screwed him on commissary and he won’t be getting it until 7/25, which means you won’t be getting a letter from him (unless you are Kate) until after that, as he has limited access to stamps.

He does not need anything to prepare for trial. He says the jail is full. Would like some books that are not “heavy” liberty (like academic stuff) and easy to read, like liberty-oriented fiction. (Pirates of Savannah, Moon is a Harsh Mistress, etc) Also fine with easy non fiction like Larken Rose. He wants to be sure other inmates will select the books after he is done.

Would like more articles to be sent that he can leave in the dayroom. Says the inmates liked the article about the jail guard getting busted.

Visitation is very limited. Only Saturdays 8-9p. Visitors must arrive no later than 7:30p and may not be more that two people.

Finally, he has a cell that has a window facing the cemetary. He cannot quite see the intersection to his left.

UPDATE (July 16th):
For the first time since being caged on July 11th Ademo was able to call-out from Valley St. Jail. He noted that he was assigned to the work unit. Since the free call was cut short little else was learned. However, our friend Wes Gilreath noted that Ademo’s visitation will be on Wednesday night (likely sometime between 7-10pm) and Saturday morning (likely sometime between 8-10:30am). We’ll confirm the hours when learned by someone on the ground.

UPDATE (July 15th):
Valley Street Jail (603) 627-5620) personnel noted that it takes 7-10days to process/medical screen/etc. then Ademo would have one day a week he could receive visitors. However, the specific day/time would not be communicated over the phone by jail personnel (the reason cited was so an unwanted visitor wouldn’t show-up at the jail) and must be learned from Ademo (either via mail or when he calls out). When this info is learned it’ll be shared at Facebook.com/FreeAdemo and on this post in the greater Manch/’shire area are able to stop-by and give him some love.

Cop Block co-founder: Court punishing me for its own fumbles by David Ridley on YouTube.com/RidleyReport

By Ademo Freeman, July 8th, 2012

This Wednesday (July 11th) at 1pm I’ll walk into district court in Manchester, New Hampshire so a judge can decide when I’ll go to jail. Why? Well the start of all this was June 4th, 2011 when I used children’s chalk on a police station. Since then I have been found guilty at a trial by judge. Wanting to speak to a jury, I appealed.

My appeal was to be heared infront of a jury (and judge) but after all the pretrial hearings were done, Judge Brown (no not the TV judge) told me the ‘court’ would send me a letter – as well as call me – to inform me of my actual jury selection and trial dates. This never happend and after a little investigating I found out that the state mailed these important documents to the wrong address (see pic below). Thinking this was a common clerical error, I filed two motions – one in Superior court and the other in District – asking for a new trial date to be scheduled. Those motions were denied and that’s why I have the July 11th hearing. You can read my blog post on this matter, with video, by clicking here.

So now due to some clerk’s incompetence I’ll be spending atleast 60 days in jail. I say atleast because while in jail I’ll be put on trial for “Wiretapping” (as if you could do such to someone with no expectation of privacy) public officials – read more here.

I know my time won’t be lost – sure it might not be the most productive ever – but I’m an activist no matter where I’m held. So now is the time to make lemonade out of lemons and that’s what I’m going to do. Below are a few ways you can help me and/or CopBlock.org if you so wish.

  • Donate to Ademo’s Jail Pledge (see widget below) – This will not only help fund CopBlock.org ventures but will also help me get paper, pencils, snacks and (if able) a couple bucks in my pocket when I get out. (Donated funds will be broken down accordingly, less than 500 FRN’s = 50% to CopBlock and 50% to Ademo. Over 500 FRN’s and CopBlock will get 75% and Ademo 25%. Pete will use the money for CopBlock as he sees fit, working with the other contributors, so stay tuned to hear from him on the raised funds.
  • Write Ademo – Mail-to-jail is a great feature Shire (aka New Hampshire) activists have. It’s quick, easy and FREE (but totally worth a small donation if you choose). Though I don’t want to spend alot of money on letters and stamps (the state jacks up prices) I do appreciate mail, as it helps to pass the time. I will write back for most and will do blanket letters that will be published here. Also, I think it would be great if someone could get a list of inmates I’m housed with, then we could form pen pal relationships with outside folks. Send them liberty minded stuff, print outs ect. Just a suggestion.
  • Get some CopBlock.org Gear – I know there are many great folks here at CopBlock.org but getting yourself some gear and sporting it on the streets is a great way to help the cause (or lack of police accountability).
  • Get involved – Visit the Help Wanted tab on CopBlock.org, it’s not all about getting arrested and there are many ways to get involved.
  • Keep up with Ademo’s jailing on the Ademo Facebook page, like it here. This is where any and all updates will be posted if needed. Including my wiretapping case.

At the end of the day I understand all to well where I’m headed and if this is the last time I’m able to blog myself. I want to say THANKS! I appreciate all the love and support folks have given me over the years. Hopefully this isn’t the end and I’ll be back in 60 days. So, until then remember…. badges don’t grant extra rights.

***It should be noted that if by some chance I am NOT jailed all donations will be refunded.****
