Bridgeport PD employees threaten CT CB founder Angel Martinez for upside-down flag

On Friday, July 19th, 2013 individuals wearing “Bridgeport PD” badges visited the home of Angel Martinez. He was out doing errands but his mom answered the door. She was asked if her son was racist, or if he hated “america”, then told that if Angel didn’t remove the upside-down american flag hanging from his property that it would be taken and he would be kidnapped and caged. The deadline given was one day – Saturday, July 20th.

Not being one to cower, Martinez recorded this video in which he notes: “I want this to be on YouTube because I want it to be documented.”

As if to prove the point Martinez was trying to communicate by hanging the flag upside down (a sign of distress) he was threatened by those who claim to protect him and defend his rights. Huh?

Davy has already contacted local and state-based media about this situation. Feel free to share with those in your sphere as well.

Take a minute and give Bridgeport PD a call or send them a message. Tell them it’s unacceptable the threats levied at Martinez.

I’m sure Angel will keep a camera at the ready. Let’s hope we hear from him with an update that the treats levied were not acted upon. After all, he has every right to freely express his views in such a way. After all, this is “america” right?

Earlier this year when on the road with The Cop Block Tour I experienced first-hand the uncalled-for hostility some employed at Bridgeport PD displayed.

A few years ago Ademo Freeman interviewed Mark and Debbie Kuhn when we were on the road with Motorhome Diaries. Check out this video to hear the treatment they subjected to for hanging a flag outside their Asheville, NC home.
