Penn Jillette mentioned Adam and Pete’s Greenfield, MA arrest and Cop Block again in one of his Penn Point shorts.
If you’re new to Cop Block, we hope you’ll take some time to learn about us and our message. We believe strongly in individual rights and police accountability. We believe that police should be held to the same social/legal standard as non-police (if not a higher one). And we also believe that it’s important for individuals to share stories about police misconduct and to educate each other about how to act during police encounters and how to hold police officers accountable for their actions.
One of the central tenets of our message is that you should film the police. Judges and juries will often take the word of a police officer above the word of a non-police officer, so it’s important for people to keep reliable records of encounters with the police. Video cameras are one of the best ways to do this.
Having accountable police is something we all have an interest in and something that we can all work collectively towards. So, if you have any videos of police encounters that you’d like featured/discussed on Cop Block or if you appreciate Cop Block’s message and want to know how you can help out, check out our “Join Us” page.
Thanks for reading.
