Angel Martinez, Connecticut Cop Block Founder, Arrested For Complying

This post will continue to be updated with relevant information as it’s an active situation. 

This past Tuesday, Nov. 27th, 2012, Heriberto “Angel” Martinez, the founder of Connecticut Cop Block, was handcuffed and had his property searched by J. Carrano, who was wearing a Bridgeport Police Department badge #11.

Angel was taken by Carrano to his hideout and told that he faced a ransom of 1,500FRNs and/or three years in a cage because he had allegedly obstructed, blocked passage, loitered, and engaged in animal cruelty.

In reality, Angel – an animal lover to all who know him – was helping to save a turtle that may have otherwise been left to die. He was aggressed-upon only when he sought to share information with a stranger who was in a less-than-ideal situation.

The fact that the flyer Angel distributed was taken by the Carrano and ripped-up, demonstrates to me, that it was the nature of literature that was the real issue. Remember, Angel was actively making an effort to leave the scene as instructed. Then he was grabbed and prevented from having freedom of movement.

But one key point that Angel didn’t mention in the above video was that the person who approached him had on a wearable camera. As Angel discloses below, he’s since submitted a motion to preserve that evidence, so that it can be objectively shown that he was in fact departing. Thus, the other threats are also without merit.

Angel is directed to appear in legal land on Dec. 7th. He’ll be there, unless the frivolous threats levied against him are dropped beforehand. If you’re in the area and can support Angel in-person that’d stellar.

The immediate hoped-for conclusion is to get help Angel get-out from the threats now levied through transparency and through the court of public opinion, as recently was obtained by Paul Leason, Minnesota Cop Block co-founder, who recently found himself in a somewhat similar situation.

If you have thoughts about what unfolded feel free to call Carrano and let him know:

Geographical Area #2 (legal land)

Connecticut Cop Block

 UPDATE: 

2012.11.29

In two videos that together last less than four-minutes, Angels details that he filed five motions and filed a complaint against J. Carrano – the person who told Angel that he was free to leave the scene but who then grabbed him, handcuffed him, searched him, and is now levying threats against Angel to the tune of 1,500FRNs and/or three-years in a cage.
