According to a Free Keene report, well known libertarians Rich Paul and Capuzzo, along with a female named Jackie, were arrested while “traveling through the police state of Massachusetts” on June 30.
They were apparently charged with possessing cannabis and a firearm.
The report did not mention that any crime had been committed, only that the trio had some plant material and a tool.
They may also have been in possession of other comparable inanimate objects, such as a cotton shirt or a ballpoint pen, but no other information is currently available.
When fellow activists and Cop Block bloggers Adam Mueller and Pete Eyre traveled to Greenfield MA to bail them out they were arrested.
In a followup report on July 2 it was reported that Mueller was charged with resisting arrest (apparently for failure to eagerly reveal his name) and wiretapping (presumably the “legal” name for videotaping) while Eyre was loaded up with five charges, including VIN (vehicle identification number) removal, possession of a gun without a FID (Firearms Identification) card, and wiretapping (apparently a felony in the CommonWraith of Massachusetts).
Again, there was no mention of any crime having been committed, only that some peaceful individuals had done some peaceful things without harming, threatening, or cheating anyone.
Whoever says America is becoming a police state, or is heading toward a police state, or is in danger of turning into a police state, has set their tolerance bar for police states way too low.
The country is awash in brain dead soul dead vampire-like thugs devoid of conscious individual personhood. As sharks exist to eat, as junkyard dogs exist to kill, government owned and trained pit bulls variously called Police or Law Enforcement Officers or Cops exist, like Ring Wraiths, solely to obey their political masters.
In regard to their fellow citizens they have no concept of conscience or principles or humanity.
They exist solely to enforce “the law,” meaning any collection of words put on paper by the political kingpins, no matter how grotesquely misguided or immoral those “laws” may be.
When people who have harmed no one, threatened no one, defrauded no one, are routinely kidnapped by the state’s enforcement grunts and locked in cages, you are living in a police state.
Wake up and smell the starched uniforms.
