Nashua PD Protects Criminals

Never do anything against conscience even if the state demands it.
– Albert Einstein

Last Wednesday, March 25th videographer Dave Ridley was kidnapped by Dennis Lynihan and Marc Anderson of the Nashua, NH Police Department when interviewing “representatives” arriving at the Nashua Radisson for an event with Joe Biden.

Dave, the victim, was held in a cage overnight and charged with “criminal trespass.” As he notes in this video, one of the first things he wanted to accomplish when free(r) was to hold a demonstration. Done.

Dave is a stand-up dude and one of the most-visible recruiters for the Free State Project. His quirky style and on-the-fly stories have gained the attention of many. I’ve never seen nor heard of Dave doing anything to violate the non-aggression principle.

There’s no doubt in my mind that he was arrested simply because he questions the Statist Quo. His captors acted knowing full-well that their risk of being held accountable for kidnapping and caging a peaceful human was almost nil* since they wear badges on their chest.

If you feel similarly, let the real criminals know that the rights-violating actions of Dennis Lynihan and Marc Anderson aren’t going unnoticed.

If you live in the area, stop funding their thuggery. If you live out of the area, call the Radisson and let them know that you won’t do business with them since they assisted with and then turned a blind eye to Dave’s treatment. And since not everyone is as Internet savvy as you, call the local paper and encourage them to inform their readers of this incident.
