NASHUA, NH - With yesterday’s release of video from Free Keene and Talley.TV, edited by Ian Freeman, I thought that now would be a good time to publish the raw footage that I took on May 21st, 2010 at Library Hill in Nashua. Plus the ongoing crackdown against those, like Sovereign Curtis, who are peacefully speaking out against Nashua’s aggressive anti-cannabis actions. It’s been over a year since the events in Nashua so Ian and I had plenty of questions for the undercover law enforcement officers that kidnapped a peaceful 420 celebrant.
Undercover law enforcers DiFava and MacIsaac had to appear in court to testify against Mike Tiner for “disorderly conduct” which you can judge for yourself in the video above (Tiner can be seen 7 minutes in). The trial’s judge, Bamberger refused to rule on motions allowing cameras to record the trial. I have the video and this will be a future episode of Talley.TV.
Speculation: Bamberger didn’t want the undercover law enforcers featured in this video to be YouTube stars because their job relies on them blending in with the general public so that they can arrest people when they do one of the numerous acts banned by various governments. What’s not speculation is that Judge Bamberger, like law enforcers DiFava and MacIsaac, work for the government. No wonder Tiner didn’t stand a chance and was found guilty.
It is very likely that individuals employed by the Nashua Police Department reviewed video I captured as well as the many videos taken by Shire Independent Media to identify people who they believe interfered with their kidnapping. The Nasua Telegraph reported a month after the police aggression:
Nashua police used YouTube and help from other area police departments to arrest two more people involved in a large protest of marijuana laws on Library Hill last month.
As an eye witness to the events on Library Hill and would like to go on the record that DiFava and MacIsaac are the real criminals for kidnapping a young man who, along with many others, was celebrating 4:20 on a beautiful day. In order to enforce the law, they broke the peace and had no business putting peaceful people in chains that day. Justice was not served but that isn’t what matters to State employees as they wage their war on drugs, which is of course a war against people. Many of whom are peaceful.
A year+ ago I reported on the events of the day at Fr33 Agents in addition to publishing the raw video:
Today I witnessed a 4:20 Celebration for the first time up close, although I have seen them many times on YouTube. Like many of the 4:20 celebrants, I am attending the 2010 Liberty Forum in Nashua, New Hampshire. Earlier today at 4:20 PM a lot of fans of freedom gathered at a park in Nashua, NH. Some of them smoked marijuana, a plant has been deemed “illegal” in the United States as part of a larger “War on Drugs.” Others just smoked cigarettes or enjoyed a beautiful afternoon in New Hampshire.
That is until two undercover cops put a pair of handcuffs on a local Nashua resident, Lewis. These two large white men claimed to be from the Nashua Police Department despite one of them wearing a Boston Red Socks Jersey. Lewis, a young black man, was placed in their police car to the shock of the other peaceful participants, many of them wearing balloon hats and holding signs. Cameras immediately turned their attention to the crimes against this young man by these alleged Nashua Police Department employees.
Like many, David Krause didn’t like what these two men were doing. That’s when he took action. David sat down in front of the police car. When they tried to remove him he went limp. That’s when these two men illustrated the true nature of government by using force against David. They dragged him away from the group and were threatening him with mace. Catherine Bleish was soon arrested for being on the street advocating the release of Lewis and David.
I’m not sure if he was attempting to physically take it from her but there was definitely physical contact and her arm was red. She yelled out “You’re hurting me.” She was able to pass off her camera to someone else before they put her in the car.
She yelled out “You’re hurting me” as a German Shepard barked at the participants of the once peaceful event. At this point some estimate a government response of 15 Nashua Police Officers.
At one point one of the police officers frantically yelled out “He’s got a gun! He’s got a gun! He’s got a gun!” in reference to one individual, like many, open-carrying. There were several folks carrying and it is legal in the state of New Hampshire. The only people harming others were wearing badges given to them by the government of Nashua, New Hampshire.
The police left the scene and the one time 4:20 celebrants headed to their vehicles to drive to the Nashua, New Hampshire Police Department Headquarters where we were told that their friends were being held.
To be continued.
