Want to Help CopBlock.org Bloggers Get Accountability in Greenfield, MA?

This week Pete, Beau (the newest member of LibertyOnTour.com) and myself are in Greenfield, MA. We’re here to face the long arm of the law, I mean state, and to defend ourselves from felony wiretapping charges, resisting arrest and trespassing. All of which stems from an incident in July 2010 at the Franklin County Jail (for more information see this meta post).

We’re slated for trial next Monday, July 18th, and will be mounting a huge campaign for accountability throughout this week. We’re able to do a lot on our own while on the ground but we could always use some help. While we’re focusing on interviewing others abused by the Greenfield PD, conducting outreach and increasing awareness, if you have the time and interest to help in a few other areas check out the list below. Thanks in advance for helping us hold those, who wrongfully arrested us, accountable.

  • Good luck guys! We are pulling for you to have complete justice!

  • Sooooo time for the “good ole’ boys” to be held accountable. And to discover our mayor is one of them is repulsive. Now he wants a second term. I hope you guys can stop them all. I will help anyway I can.

  • Gorge Writ

    Keep up the good work from Hong Kong. U.S. citizens need to wake up and take their freedom back.

  • Mich Chichour

    You guys are idiots. You don’t understand basic libertarian concepts, the role of the court in criminal matters, and you act like disrespectful children. I personally hope you are held accountable and sentenced appropriately. You have not stated a meaningful concept to date. Todd Dodge did his job. A job is what you knuckleheads should get so you can stop wasting people’s time with your empty drivel.

  • Rob

    @Mich Chichour :If Todd Doge and the officers never showed up Ademo and Pete would have simply paid the bail, grabbed their friend and left, the police escalated this situation and had to show ‘who’s the boss” and ‘you will listen to me no matter what” while making themselves look like asses. Again let me repeat. IF THERE WERE NO COPS THERE THIS WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED.

  • Brian

    @Rob, from the history they have shown on their cd and website they would NOT have just paid the bail and left. It sounds to me like these guys like to initiate a confrontation and after the shit hits the fan they complain about their freedoms and rights.

    I understand their basic principles but they seem to be going through this b.s. through their own actions.
