Corruption Rises to the Top

On April 14th 2009, I was filming in the second floor lobby of Keene City hall. According to an unsigned document on the wall filming is prohibited. I was arrested and cuffed over a silver bracelet seen in the background of the video.

I dropped to the floor and as they dragged me around the bracelet was cutting into my wrist causing excruciating pain. Eli Rivera, now running for sheriff, found this rather amusing. This video depicts the events that happened before my camera was turned off.

A few months later Activist Kurt Hoffman was taken to the same back room where according to Rivera, he fell while trying to escape. No felony escape charges were ever filed, and according to Hoffman and a witness, Rivera tackled him, putting Hoffman in a wheelchair for several weeks.

Please share this video, include it in your videos, and use it to show people the kinds of sociopaths attracted to power.

Update: I posted a question to the Eli Rivera for Sheriff’s discussion page, and something interesting happened. “Silent Nation” one of the trolls identified himself as Matt Sorenson. Here are a couple of his comments:

Then later he changed his comment. This all happened around 2am, so I’m guessing Matt came back from a bar wasted.

Eli has since deleted his facebook discussion page. I guess he wasn’t all that interested in talking over issues with his constituents.

    Sorry Holy – Once again your ignoring reality. The fact is they did ignore unison drinking in far greater numbers at the next meeting. The meeting went on without incident because the bureaucrats decided not to make a scene after they realized they couldn't enforce their silly ordinances without violating basic constitutional rights they pledged their integrity to protect.

    You seem to have a knack for taking small slices of an event to base your opinion upon, while ignoring everything else.

    "Sorry Holy – Once again your ignoring reality. The fact is they did ignore unison drinking in far greater numbers at the next meeting. "

    That doesn't mean it still wasn't distracting.

    "The meeting went on without incident because the bureaucrats decided not to make a scene after they realized they couldn’t enforce their silly ordinances without violating basic constitutional rights they pledged their integrity to protect."

    Under Robert's Rules of Order they're allowed to remove anyone, at anytime, whom they feel are disrupting the meeting.

    I think they chose to ignore you because they knew you'd go away eventually, which you did.

    "You seem to have a knack for taking small slices of an event to base your opinion upon, while ignoring everything else."

    My opinion that drinking in unison was distracting still stands.

    Is that criticism or a compliment from the master at it?
