They’re Back!!! Pete and Ademo Return To Greenfield, MA

<iframe width=”640″ height=”360″ src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/E7B9aL3IwPE” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

Last July Pete and myself, of CopBlock.org, were arrested while attempting to film the bail process of two of our friends. After a year of court room proceedings, consisting mostly of us asking questions, we’re slated for trial on July 18th at 9 am in Greenfield District Court. Together Pete and I face felony wiretapping, trespassing, resisting and disorderly conduct charges – Pete is also being charged with vehicle manipulation and felony ammunition charges.

Before we get the chance to clear our names in court we’ll be spending the week in Greenfield to raise awareness (hopefully you’re here because you’ve met us or received one of our fliers/CD’s) about the Greenfield PD’s actions.  What will we be doing in Greenfield this week? We’d like to meet and connect with as many folks who are willing to share their experience or thoughts on the Greenfield police department. We’ll be hanging out in the downtown area a lot, most Replay’s on Main Street – great music store – but if you see us or MARV (the RV) please don’t hesitate to stop by and chat with us. We’ll also be holding a rally/conference at some point this week, details to come, as well as interviewing those responsible for this continued burden on our lives. After all, we’ve harmed no one and broke no laws. Heck, the police (or state) was filming us at the same time they arrested us for filming!

For those who are unfamiliar with our case, please watch the video below and click on some of the related post listed.

    I would request a Federal Marshal be present at the Greenfield Police Station and Courthouse to protect the Civil Rights and Civil Liberties of those entering these public premises.

  • keith

    wellcome back boys.proud of you both

  • VAPA

    Thanks for your patriotism and courage dudes (redundant I know). You guys are having an affect on those in public service, though I know you don’t see it much. Keep it up!

  • Joshua

    Hi guys,

    Many kudos on your efforts to keep the First Amendment alive. I just have one question: why the general hostility towards lawyers?

    There are probably a lot of excellent attorneys out there who would very much like to help you in your cause.

  • Matt

    “They’re Back!…..Pete and Ademo”….written by……Ademo? LOL. Impressed with yourself much? Yeah this story isn’t *too* unbiased.

  • RICK

    They don’t have to show you any rule when asking you to shut your camera off. The same rules apply on any property. You guys should really go get a real job instead of creating scenes and unsafe situations for the citizens of greenfield that the police protect. You’ll be thanking the police when you get robbed or threatened by someone who doesnt agree with your voluntyism. And you’ll be begging the police and lawyers to seek justice for you. Or would you be okay with someone violating your civil rights and have noone to stand up for you, but you and your camera?

  • Dawn

    You’re the voice of reason, Rick. But they just don’t get it.

  • K

    Rick, I think you’re missing the point of this entirely. For one you’re making assumptions, much like the police in this video. On multiple occasions during the situation, both men asked to see where this law regarding filming was posted, and the question was never directly addressed. I fail to see how they created an unsafe situation, rather they are trying to, and in my opinion succeed in exposing the unjust way in which the Greenfield police force deal with citizens, the very same citizens who pay their salary. If they had nothing to hide, they had nothing to fear. Also the whole situation of breaking into their mobile home for shady reasons really makes the department look good! Great police work by officer dodgy.

    “They don’t have to show you any rule when asking you to shut your camera off. The same rules apply on any property.”

    This isn’t true. Under Massachusetts law, audiorecording on public property cannot be restricted unless it is surreptitious. See Commonwealth v. Hyde. Even the prosecutor in the case against Pete and Ademo admitted this much in court.

    “You guys should really go get a real job instead of creating scenes and unsafe situations for the citizens of greenfield that the police protect.”

    How does videorecording create “scenes and unsafe situations”? Cameras are not weapons. You’d have to be insane to think that they’re dangerous.

    You’ll be thanking the police when you get robbed or threatened by someone who doesnt agree with your voluntyism. And you’ll be begging the police and lawyers to seek justice for you.

    If Adam and Pete were robbed, the police would almost certainly do absolutely nothing. FBI statistics for 2009 shows that police only solved about 28% of robberies. And those are only reported robberies. Since many, if not most, crimes go unreported to the police, the percentage of robberies the police solve is even lower than the FBI’s statistics suggest.

    In fact, Adam and Pete are more likely to get robbed or threatened in Massachusetts precisely because of the police. If the cops didn’t enforce their insane gun controls laws, Adam and Pete would be free to carry firearms (as Pete often does) into Massachusetts to defend themselves from crime.

    Again you all sound like a bunch of losers. Do life a favor close down this site and get a job.

  • Rob

    @ A normal person,

    I’m confused as to what you are asking me to do. Since I have a very successful career would you like me to quit my employment and find other work? Or are you just asking me to get a second job to do life a favor? Thanks for another useless immature rant :)
