Ademo requests two copies of The Most Dangerous Superstition by Larken Rose be sent to Valley Street Jail – one for him (that he’ll pass-along to someone when he leaves the facility) and one for someone else in the same pod who seems receptive to the ideas of complete liberty. Larken agreed, and even ate the cost for one of the books – he not only is an excellent communicator but more than almost anyone, walks the walk. Much thanks Larken, for this and everything you do!

Update – July 27th:
Ademo had his pre-trial conference today in Manchester. His trial date was set: Aug. 13th. He was offered two plea deals:

The first had him sitting in Valley St. Jail for 12mo with 6mo suspended for two-years of “good time” hanging over his head, which if violated (for any level charge in or outside the ‘shire) would have incurred a 1-2yr stint at the prison in Concord. Also, a no-contact order for the three public officials with whom he spoke. Ademo declined.

The second was the same minus the 12mo in Valley St. Ademo declined.

The DA is going to “talk with his boss” and is supposed to visit with Ademo on Monday with another deal. Meanwhile, Ademo will have the weekend to think about what might be acceptable to him so he can put this latest legal land bout behind him and move forward with his life. All in all, he seems in good spirits.

Update – July 26th:
Ademo said he could use some liberty-oriented books (stories) if anyone feels so inclined as to send some his way. He would very much appreciate it. Once he has read them, he would leave them for other prisoners to read. All books must be sent new, directly from the publisher, via USPS to:

Update – July 25th:
Ademo was not transported to court for his pre-trial conference – it has been postponed until Friday, July 26th. Court personnel claimed they didn’t know he was at Valley St. Jail, despite the fact that he was taken from that location directly to Valley St. Jail on July 11th [see:] and multiple calls made to the court to confirm they knew of his location.

Ademo is supposedly now going to have that trial management meeting on Friday. Thanks to everyone who made the drive from Keene and those who turn-out from Manch to support Ademo today. Pretty redic how this unfolded. Seems part of a pattern…

Update – July 24th:
Ademo has a final pre-trial conference tomorrow (July 25th). Facebook event

NH Public Officials Act with Blatant Disregard for Glik Decision

Local journalist and police accountability advocate Adam Mueller faces 21-years in prison for publicizing comments made by public officials operating in their public capacity about an excessive force incident involving Manchester Police officer Darren Murphy and a 17 year-old student that occurred at Manchester’s West High School in October, 2011.

Another student filmed the interaction with his cell phone as his classmate was slammed to a table by School Resource Officer Darren Murphy. After viewing the video that public officials told the recording student to delete, Mueller called the Manchester Police Department and West High School seeking comment. Mueller publicized a video on about the incident which included segments of his conversations with the on-duty public officials.

Almost three months after the altercation at West High School occurred, Adam was indicted on three counts of felony wiretapping, each holding a maximum sentence of seven years in prison. Mueller is ordered to appear for jury selection at the Manchester Superior Court on August 6, 2012 at 9:00AM, and the trial is expected to occur within the two weeks following jury selection.

NH statute states that to be guilty of wiretapping, another party must have a reasonable expectation that their communications are not subject to interception. A public official who is on duty and in a public space has no expectation of privacy, as is reinforced by the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Glik v. Cunniffe in a ruling that states that the First Amendment protects the right to record police in public.

Individuals throughout the country have publicly expressed their support for Mueller’s actions and voiced their recognition of clear double standards. “No matter what, nobody’s child should be abused like that in school,” said the father of the student thrown to the cafeteria table.
