I was there for the closing arguments.

BTW, he's originally from Wi, but lives in NH these days.

Free Ademo!

Seriously, this is stupid. Ademo is a political prisoner, plain and simple.

Seriously, this is stupid. Ademo is a political prisoner, plain and simple.

He was found guilty by a jury of his peers. The jury had every opportunity to free this man. The judge gave him a boatload of leeway with the jury. The judge's instrucctions given to the jury I think were the problem. The jury was told to judge the law and the evidence and to ignore Ademo's opinions. The jury listened to the judge and the dictrict attorney. The problem always has been... and remains... We The People. Society not only approves, but went out of its way to tell the rest of us that we may not hold our public servants accountable by secretly recording telephone calls with them. It simply does not matter what rights we think we have when there are systems, enforcers, and supporters in place that are convinced that forcing their will on the rest of us saves lives and keeps their kids safe. More focus needs to be placed on educating the public rather than open dissident and activism, because average America sees this activism and dissent but doesnt understand it, then are propagandized and manipulated into thinking they are criminals, traitors, radicals, or nutbags.

All too accurate.  Sad
He even informed them of jury nullification.

Consent is should be irrelevant whenever public funds are concerned. Especially when those people are public servants working directly for the people.

UPDATE - Ademo states he is going to be appealing the verdict.

This need to go to the supreme court if necessary.

What he did was act like a reporter. He asked probing and pertinent questions of public servants. They didn't like that. He was sentenced to some jail time, although no where near as much as he could have gotten.

http://www.copblock.org/tag/ademo-freeman/ has a history of it all. Good organization too, although I think the name is a bit more antagonistic than it should be.

So all he had to do was start each convo saying, do you agree if i record this convo? Yes or no? And he would have been all set?

They wouldn't speak then.

Reminds me of the people who are often imprisoned by judges for contempt because they didnt pay a civil judgement as the judge ordered or as quickly as the judge ordered. Bringing back debtors prisons the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution outlawed... one peasant as a time.
