    A Jury of his peers, plain and simple

    I have always believed that I would never choose a trial by jury. Most of the people of this country are mercifully free of the ravages of conscience, intelligence, and wisdom.
    I whole heartedly believe in our freedom to record incidents, be it voice, video, or telecommunications. If innocent people are being bullied by law enforcement agencies, I would absolutely record the injustice if I could.
    I would like to say that, if it was possible, I would take this man’s place in prison and do some time for him. Wouldn’t that be great to be able to put your body where your mouth is.

    Guess you shouldn’t have used that donation money for Taco Bell.

    Too bad out of 90 people you had in support, you couldn’t get on juror to side with your cause.

    How many times has Adam been arrested now? Like six or seven? Perhaps its time to stop acting like a child and get a job. Maybe you could scrap metal, prices are pretty good now and the hours are flexiable. Maybe you could be one of those guys who turns the ‘slow/stop’ sign at a construction site. Oh, I have it, ‘human sign’ out front of the Cash Advance store downtown. You could do that cool ZZ Top trick and spin the sign around in a circle.

    Since most of the other supporters are unemployed, they will have 3 hours to spend watching this. Unlike then, I actually have a job and pay taxes, taxes that go to house shitheads like this. Money well spent.

    Good job Manchester PD, forcing man-children to grow up one at a time!

  • Tom

    There’s an excellent write-up on the constitutionality of the law as applied in this case at the Simple Justice Blog.

  • Otto Maddox

    Common Sense is the typical nanny stater.

    He thinks it’s the job of the State to force people to grow up.

    YES!!! 3 hours of sadomasochistic man-child porn!

    Today is my lucky day, catch you guys tomorrow.

  • Ian

    Notice how at the end, the prosecutor seemed to feel bad for the shit he’s put Ademo through? File an appeal Ademo! You got this!

  • Common Sense

    Felt bad? Like how you feel bad at seeing the tard try and try, and you just have to take pity on them…maybe that’s what you meant.

    Trust me, Adam is loving it. Three squares a day, clean clothes and a shower once a week.

    Don’t forget to donate to his commissary.

  • Tom

    Ademo shouldn’t have stipulated w/ respect to Ms. Mitchell, the state couldn’t have proven that count w/o the stipulation.

    Anyone who doesn’t understand why citizens should be allowed to surreptitiously record their interactions with public employees needs the transcript of Eugene Siler’s (illegal in the state of NH) ‘wiretap’ of 5 police officers who beat tortured and electrocuted him for over an hour in an effort to get him to sign a consent to search.

    If you Google the name Eugene Siler you can find the audio. It will make you sick to your stomach.

    I’m sure Mr. Valentine would have dutifully prosecuted Eugene Siler for 5 counts of felony wiretapping being the good little Obersturmführer that he is.

  • I just watched the entire video and the support that was shown for Ademo was both encouraging and emotional. It may not be in my lifetime but I hope my sons live to see the day when the majority of people believe that The State initiation of coercion is a bad thing. Those that defend government theft of wages, initiation of force, and caging for victimless crimes are similar to the past supporters of slavery. Some day they will become extinct. We march on.

  • Common Sense is a woman,no man would spend the amount of time and effort on a site they didn’t like.

    On another note…

    Now that Ademo has been so called held accountable for what we all know is bullshit, what is being done about Mr. Murphy? I would not want him to handle my child in that way. I cant seem to find any ON RECORD comments from anyone of them that took the stand.

    I don’t like the fact he has to do time over this, but all in all I think the judge was a standup guy himself.

    Most anyone in the face of sentence would sit there and BEG for mercy…not ADEMO, he stood true.

  • Common Sense your just another lame a$$ troll.

    Since you worship the “authorities” and the police. Here’s a website dedicated to your religion.
    If your faith is shaken, just keep telling yourself it’s only a few bad apples.

  • I all I had to do is watch the jury instruction. He did not advise to jury according to the new nullification law.

    “In all criminal proceedings the court shall permit the defense to inform the jury of its right to judge the facts and the application of the law in relation to the facts in controversy.”

    In fact , the judge told the jury they MUST obey his instructions as to the application of the law.

    Now we will see if Ademo has half a brain in his head.

  • James

    Has anyone figured out his release date yet?

  • I wonder how many college students in the Granite state use micro-cassette recorders to record lectures for future reference in violation of the law. Rodney King was lucky that his beating didn’t happen in New Hampshire, the “live free or die” state. This case eloquently demonstrates that the wiretapping statute needs revisiting.
    Its original intent may have been to protect the innocent from blackmail or extortion and certainly situations such as this were not taken into account when the law was written.

    Wouldn’t any normal person consider wiretapping to be what the government does, meaning intercepting your conversations over the wire. Not someone recording in a room where someone may happen to be using a phone. That’s just ridiculous.

    Regarding commonsense, she has none.

  • After watching this entire trial, it’s extremely interesting how it was NEVER addressed how both the officer and principal back tracked on saying if the phone lines or camera’s were audio taped. She clearly states that there is audio although it is not good, then changes it to the fact that there isn’t at all.. How would the thought of the audio not being good even cross her mind if it never was, and isn’t? Of course the second officer is going to say it’s not recorded because the first one messed it up so bad with making it a possibility. Witnesses were a joke in the case in my opinion.

    Do 9-1-1 (police) opprators ever ask callers if they can record conversations?
