It was Friday night, and Keene Copblock was on the streets. While observing another scene I noticed what looked like an undercover unit drive down the street and turn onto Marlborough. I gave chase on my bicycle down to the Keene police station, where the officers were taking beer from the trunk of one undercover Impala and loading it into the backseat of another. I pulled out my camera and began recording. That’s where the video picks up. Thanks to Lightspeedliberty for editing the video and the other CopBlockers for their dedication and assistance in busting these aggressors:
Keene Copblock Busts Four Undercover Liquor Enforcers!
Is it illegal to be a undercover cop? No. There is a persistent myth that police have to identify themselves if asked "Are you a cop?" They may lie, break laws, entrap, sting, and are not required to identify themselves.
Nicely done! But I wonder how many people who “need” to see this video—that is, Keene residents who might be victimized by these four—will actually see it. A nice follow-up would be printing out still-frames of the cops and the tags and plastering such posters everywhere in downtown Keene.
