On July 21st, 2014, Cop Block – the decentralized project – was mentioned on the O’Reilly Factor.
It is interesting what Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly choose to say, and what they choose to omit, or infer.
Check it out. And think for yourself.
The O’Reilly Factor
July 21, 2014
“Spying” implies a secretive act. Filming the police creates an objective record, something that should be supported by those who value truth – police and non-police alike.
Controversial to those who fear transparency.
This clip is taken from a segment that aired July 16, 2014 on Dallas-Ft. Worth KXAS NBC5.
Joe Tye is active with Texas Cop Block. Jose Vela is active with Dallas Cop Block. [more with Jose: Jose Vela on Dallas Cop Block & Policing the Police]

From CopBlock.org/About: We do not “hate cops.” We believe that no one – not even those with badges – has extra rights. The failure to realize and act on that is to our detriment. By focusing the disinfecting light of transparency on public officials we safeguard not just our rights but those of future generations.
Is the priority of police employees their own safety or the safety of those they claim to protect? Dale Brown of Detroit’s Threat Management Center has some on-point remarks to that question.
“Enough stress on police”? If police employes find their chosen gig too stressful, they’re always free to leave and find something productive to do.
“Clowns” “Paul Bunyan”? Using ad hominem attacks distract from the real conversation – the double standards claimed and acted upon by individuals based on their place of employment.
Police are trained to escalate their use of force to gain compliance. Police watchers, on the other hand, are encouraged to remain calm, cool and collected.
Those “idiots” are people whom police claim to “serve” Is it surprising that some may have animosity toward police employees, who hassle, ransom or cage them for engaging in actions that cause no victim?

This statement by Ms. Kelly makes clear why so many have coalesced around the ideas of Copblocking…
Police, despite well-meaning intentions, work for an outfit that’s based on double-standards – the claimed “right” to steal from others in the community, to then protect them. They have no incentive to satisfy their “customers” and courts say that they have no duty to protect you.
The content is titled “When Should You Shoot A Cop” – a big difference. If you own yourself, and have the right to defend yourself against an aggressor, it matters not what attire that aggressor wears, or where they work.
Ademo isn’t alone – millions have been wronged by those in the injustice system, and throughout history, by individuals who parrot “I’m just doing my job”
“Got caught”? Is Mr. O’Reilly so authoritarian that he believes individuals engaging in consensual interactions that harm no one else should be caged? What about the person who sold him his suit? Or his car?
Video recording anyone in public is “legal” but some self- proclaimed rulers may threaten or levy “wiretapping” charges in an attempt to deter the practice. See: CopBlock.org/FilmThePolice
Legislation does not equal law. Be careful not to conflate the former with the latter as it bestows upon the writers of legalese the arbitrary authority they seek.
If the police and their friends in legaland are left to define “interfere” or “harass” might they be inclined to kidnap and cage people, and levy baseless threats?
Much love to everyone working to share truth, and to shine the disinfecting light of transparency on those who act in the wrong.
You are the network, and together, we’re shifting away from a reality that positions some as rulers and others as ruled, and instead, maximizes individual freedom and personal responsibility.
