Jim Johnson (Keene, NH) and John Kurtz (Orlando, FL) may have never met but they have a lot in common, especially at the moment, as they’re both currently in a cage for standing up for their (and your) rights.
Jim Johnson is a peacefully man, one that has helped us repair and maintain MARV time and time again, who’s caged for refusing to pay a trespassing fine and for failing to fill out financial information. Yep, in ‘america’ your taxes will be used to build 40 million dollar prisons, that house 7 violent offenders out of 167 inmates – according to the Superintendent of Cheshire Co Jail, but when you go to take a walk around it they forcefully throw you inside. That’s why we made this video to encourage others to help support Jim through his painful stay at the house of corrections.
John Kurtz is another peaceful man who’s an advocate for transparency and accountability by using a camera to document government officials, especially cops – he founded OrlandoCopwatch.com. And that’s what John was doing one night, video tapping cops who were being rough with someone. After beating a felony charge at trial John was still found guilty of ‘resisting arrest.’ Yep, in ‘america’ you can be found NOT guilty of the original charge, yet do time (30 days is John’s sentence) for resisting an arrest that shouldn’t have happened in the first place. That’s also why we made this video to encourage others to support John through this troubling time of injustice.
