Kansas City – The Cop Block Tour

copblock-tour-route-kansascityOn Saturday, Feb. 2nd, 2013 I met-up with a lot of awesome folks at the Westport Flea Market in Kansas City, MO where, after an intro by Toni Bones, who’s active with MO/KS Copblock, I shared some thoughts on best-practices to safeguard ones rights during police interactions, effective damage control tactics should you find yourself threatened in legal land, and how to most-effectively eliminate police brutality, by focusing on the fact that it is individuals (not text on paper) who act, and are thus responsible.

After the solid freewheeling conversation a few others – Tracy Ward who’s active with The Liberty Restoration Project, Brad Spangler who’s active with MO/KS Cop Block, and Eapen Thampy who’s active with Americans for Forfeiture Reform – shared some thoughts with those present:

It was great to see the diverse interests and existing activities pursued by those present and awesome to see all the interest at growing the impact of the MO/KS Cop Block group. If you’re in the area I strongly suggest you connect with them!

That night when driving in nearby Independence I saw some road pirate activity:

I parked nearby and got out on foot but found I was too late to help document the interaction:

The next day I returned to the same venue where the Cop Block meetup was held to hear Bobby Spags share his thoughts on threats to individual freedom today and the police state:

On Feb. 5th TonysKansasCity.com published this overview of the Cop Block meetup:

A previous post by Tony, which included insight from Tracy Ward and Toni Bones, also had included a plug for the meetup:

Awesome to know that these efforts are getting in front of more eyes and minds! Much love to all y’all in KC!
