Freekeenenews - State Police Misinform in Their Release About My Arrest

Activist Arrested, State Police Misinform As to Why

The NH State Police claim I acquired "multiple identifications" in their misleading press release.  The truth is that at no point did I have more than one ID from the state of New Hampshire, and they know that.  For full details on my arrest from yesterday, please see this post at Free Keene, and here are the warrants, charging documents, and bail paperwork.

In short, the state police are accusing me of "unsworn falsification" and "prohibitions" claiming I used a "false" or "fraudulent" name on the driver's license application, which I did not knowingly do.  Essentially, they are trying to put me in jail for two years (two class A misdemeanors) for filing papers in the wrong order.

Freekeenenews - BREAKING: Man With Rifle At Manchester Airport

BREAKING: Man With Rifle At Manchester Airport

Manchester liberty activist Liberty Carrots is currently standing in front of the TSA checkpoint at Manch airport with a rifle slung to his back.  He is handing out copies of the FPP newspaper and greeting travelers with a smile and wave.

Carrots’ creative, courageous activism is not the first at Manch airport.  Longtime readers of Free Keene may recall in 2012 when Keene activists Derrick J and Kelly went to Manchester airport to strip down in protest of the invasive TSA, in their “Don’tStrip Our Rights” events.

Plus, back before Free Keene even existed, early mover and civil disobedience activist Russell Kanning was arrested at the airport for trying to board a flight with no ID, a Bible, and a copy of the declaration of independence!

Free Keene blogger Robert Mathias took this photo and says video is to come – stay tuned to Free Keene for the latest!

Freekeenenews - Voters Sue Keene School District Over Warrant Article Changes

Voters Sue Keene School District

The voters claim the modifications made to the petitioned warrant articles at the 2014 deliberative session were illegal. 
Before the Deliberative Session, voter Conan Salada collected signatures on seven warrant articles to be placed on the official ballot before voters in the upcoming Keene School District election. During the Deliberative Session, all seven warrant articles were amended in a manner that eliminated the subject. These amendments were challenged as out of order, however the moderator overruled those motions, and the majority of voters in attendance agreed with the moderator. The Keene Sentinel described these changes as "Machiavellian legal maneuvering... to avoid letting voters decide the merits of the articles".

After the Deliberative Session, voter Darryl W. Perry, was directed to the 2011 Rockingham Superior Court decision in the case of Bailey v. Town of Exeter. In Bailey, the Court ruled, “the only way the phrase 'no warrant article shall be amended to eliminate the subject matter of the article' can logically be read is to conclude that any amendment that made the subject matter of the article a nullity was forbidden,” adding that “[m]erely because the majority of the voters were more clever in the way the amendment was worded to create the nullity does not mean their action was not a violation of the statute.”

Perry, Salada and two other voters (David Crawford and Eric LaRoche) have filed suit on Feb 19th against the School District due to the illegal actions at the Deliberative Session that have disenfranchised the voters of Keene, including petitioners. The filing can be read here.  The Cheshire superior court will hold an initial emergency hearing of the case on 2/28 at 11am due to the short timeframe remaining prior to the school board election.

Freekeenenews - Robin Hood of Keene Welcomes Keene State College Students Back by Filling Parking Meters for Them

Robin Hooders to Protect Returning KSC Students From Parking Tickets

Robin Hood of Keene believes strongly in the importance of education.  Therefore, it has agreed, in solidarity with Keene State College, to welcome our future scholars back to Keene, New Hampshire by filling the parking meters on the College side of Main Street near Keene State College all day on Wednesday, January 22 2014.

As you may recall, Robin Hood of Keene collaborated with City of Keene last year to extend the Holiday Parking Week by an additional day. Just as that was the first time Robin Hood of Keene partnered with City of Keene, this will be the start of Robin Hood of Keene's partnership with Keene State College. The partnership with City of Keene was a win-win for the people and small businesses of Keene. Robin Hood of Keene is looking forward to additional partnerships during 2014 with one overall goal in mind - saving the people from the King's tariff.

Freekeenenews - City Appeals Robin Hood Cases to Supreme Court 

City Files Robin Hood Appeal

City spends $2,200 on the transcript of the superior court hearings.  The people calling themselves the “City of Keene” have officially filed their appeal in the Robin Hood cases. They have also filed a motion asking the NH supreme court to accept amicus briefs in the case from other interested parties, which will likely be various state employee unions, and other state agencies interested in destroying freedom of speech and the press.

The appeal paperwork lists the amount “the City” will be forcing taxpayers to pay for the transcript of the three-day “evidentiary hearings” that led to the dismissal of their illegal, unconstitutional civil cases against the Robin Hooders: $2,200! Add that to the at least $20,000 that taxpayers have forked over for this frivolous case against us in the first place, and then keep counting, because the legal bill from the fancy private attorneys “the city” hired isn’t going to get smaller!

A recent Keene city council meeting shows a non-public session where the council appears to have voted 12-0 on a legal issue, presumably this case.  Is the city council really in favor of this move by “the city”?  How many taxpayer dollars are they willing to lavish on this case before people boot them out of office in the next election?

Usually the court will take a month to docket the case.  Stay tuned to Free Keene for the latest on the Robin Hood saga.
