James Cleaveland found NOT GUILTY of “Resisting”; Jury Deadlocked on “Disorderly” 6-6, Mistrial Declared

James Cleaveland Victory 2015!

James Cleaveland After His Court Victory

In a clear victory today, Free State Project early mover James Cleaveland was found not guilty of “resisting arrest” and six of twelve jurors voted not guilty on the “disorderly conduct” charge! Judge John C Kissinger spoke with the attorneys after the verdict and relayed that the jurors were locked 6-6 on the disorderly charge for all five hours of their deliberation. As a result, a mistrial was declared on the “disorderly” charge, meaning it may go to retrial.

Earlier this year in a bench trial for the same charges, Keene district court judge Edward J Burke found James guilty of both counts. As is his right, James appealed the two class-A misdemeanor charges to a jury trial, even though the sentence from Burke was suspended on condition of good behavior. Ultimately James said he was glad he went to jury trial, as he’s now been vindicated completely on the “resisting” charge, where state police officer Phillip Gaiser lied, claiming James lunged at him and also stepped back 3-4 steps when he tried to cuff him, a claim that was proven false by the video and audio evidence in the case.

In post-trial comments for Free Keene, James said that the video and audio he recorded was critical to his success. Otherwise it would be several cops’ word versus his word, and jurors generally believe police to be honest. Though it was costly in time, stress, and thousands of dollars in legal fees, James is glad he stood up for the right of free press.

Kissinger allegedly said that James choosing to testify made a good impression on jurors, but that having a larger camera would somehow have given him better credibility. All jurors refused activists’ offers of $60 for a post-trial interview.

This is the biggest jury trial success of any liberty activist thus far tried in New Hampshire. Major thanks to all the stellar activists who braved the cold to hand out NHJury.com trifolds to the jurors and also hold signage reflecting the amount of time James was facing (two years in prison), a detail never allowed to be revealed in a criminal trial.

Full video of the trial is still to come to Free Keene. Stay tuned!

Two posts in one day, detective? My you're prolific! And yet in each post you still bother to tell lies about your successes, despite knowing perfectly well that you're one for five.

I'm very concerned about you, detective. First this nervous breakdown of yours involving baby talk, and then this more recent revelation that you're a closeted homosexual. How do you manage, detective?

I'm glad to see you've decided to take my advice, detective, and have started visiting those one of those bars we discussed. You seem to be doing that every other day, now. Hopefully you're not overdoing it.

It's unfortunate that deciding to stop lying to yourself about this hasn't improved your behavior in any way. Now if you could only stop lying about other things.

By the way, detective, you're one for five. Until tomorrow.

Well, detective, at least you've found a method of discourse that requires even less effort than what you're used to expending. However, if you think this will goad me into using your methods of trolling, you're mistaken. It's strange how you're always thinking that you're in any way intelligent enough to manipulate me, detective. I wonder what that says of the intelligence of those in your real life? Are they as unintelligent as you, detective? If that's true, maybe you should start making friends with more intelligent people? Maybe they can teach you how to manipulate me? Or maybe they'll just laugh at you?

By the way, detective, I can keep this up for as long as you can. You're still one for five. You know very well why.

That's the spirit, detective! There's nothing that says "winner" like wallowing in your own banality!

Now that the Free State Project is about to begin its second stage, detective, when will you be packing your belongings and moving away? And will your crew be moving with you? Oh! And when you finally do move, detective, don't forget to mention to your new friends how you were only able to support one of your five arguments on this blog. While I'm sure that they will in no way be impressed by this, it's best that you be honest with them from the beginning. Nobody wants to be friends with a liar you know!

And what is this, detective? Transcribing baby talk into the form of a reply? Well that isn't very menacing! I thought you said that you always went for the jugular in life, detective? It doesn't look like you're doing that here! In fact, it looks instead like you've nearly given up! You haven't lost confidence in yourself, have you detective?

By the way, detective, you're still one for five. That will never change. Now that you've decided to regress your mental state to the level of that of an infant, might I suggest that you take your new personality a step further and have your mother write that down for you on a little card? Then she can pin it to your jacket so that you won't forget.

Fantastic, detective! You could have just called me a "fuckface", but you took the high road this time and replied with a trope implying that you're bored and decided to catch up on your sleep! Still very childish, though! It looks like you just won me some money, detective!

Frankly, detective, I knew I couldn't lose. You've never submitted anything but childish replies here. My favorites were the ones where you constructed simplistic fantasies that you thought would demonstrate to your rivals your advanced planning abilities. Do you remember those games of pretend, detective? You know, the one where you pretended that your replies were designed specifically designed to "waste my time", or the other ones where you pretended you were constructing an elaborate "chess" game so you could checkmate your rivals. So hilarious! And they way you immersed yourself into those fantasies was absolutely marvelous!

Ah, detective. You're so dull. Maybe in your next reply you can tell me again how I "just don't get it"?

By the way, you're one for five. Until later, detective!

You're still haven't made any modifications to your rude behavior, detective. Making presumptions about others is very rude; but continuing to make them once you've discovered the presumptions are false is what makes the behavior very atrocious. Oh well. It doesn't look like I'll be conceding to any of your demands this time around.

You know, detective, the fact that you still need these constant corrections from me is quite peculiar. Extraordinarily peculiar in fact. I'm getting the impression here that you really aren't actually an adult. Do you think you could convince me otherwise by making a solid attempt next time at advancing some adult rhetoric? You know, so you can prove me wrong detective? I've placed a wager on your next reply. My bet is that you won't. I think I've made a good bet. I can't wait for your next response so I can win some money. Until then, detective.

Oh! And you're one for five, detective. Not that you didn't already know that.

Bsizzle

Nope I'm 4 for 5. Tell me what my "lies" are, and how I am supposed to "modify " my "atrocious behavior "? Let's see if you can even attempt explaining this, seeing that you blatantly avoid any of my questions. To keep on topic, I wonder how your buddy Cleaveland is going to fare on the rest of his waste of time trial? Now he's on probation, let's hope is keeping out of trouble, eh draccc? Do you want to know what's pathetic? You aren't even keeping on topic at all, and that answers some of my questions, but not all.

Thanks

Drac Vermell

You continue to make presumptuous demands, detective, yet you offer absolutely nothing in return. I thought I made it clear to you that I wouldn't be cooperating with you until you started modifying this atrocious behavior of yours? Tsk, tsk, detective.

Since it's a forgone conclusion that you'll be responding tomorrow, do you think that you can do so while trying to behave like an adult, detective?

And you're still one for five. I can't wait to find out! Until tomorrow, detective!

Nope I'm 4 for 5. You didn't answer my questions, again. The questions I posted

two posts ago are the easy ones. So did you call up anyone in the Keene area for some answers back for my questions? You weren't straight forward with you answering back if that's what you call it. It's more like your replies are dripping with sarcasm, obviously so let's try this again.

Drac Vermell

If your questions are so stupid and insignificant, then why are you so surprised that they're being ignored, detective?

Oh, and thank you for being so considerate with your shrewd suggestion, detective! That will assuredly make things much easier! Ah, detective... You're such a riot! You actually still believe that you're in control here!

By the way, detective, you're still one for five! Until tomorrow!

Nope I'm 4 for 5. You can't even respond to a stupid and insignificant question, that I am asking of you. You know what, you can even call up business owners that live and work in the area and ask them these same questions, you actually don't have to drive your Buick down here to get the response I want you to get. See how easy I made that for you? There isn't any gang here, draccc. Again, what "lies" am I posting here? There is no disappointment here, just what is your future, Dracula!

Drac Vermell
Drac Vermell

Of course you associate yourself with a "gang", detective. Why otherwise would you be assuming that your opinions represent those of the rest of the citizens of Keene? You really need to stop making such presumptions, detective. It'll save you a lot of disappointment in the future.

You're also still one for five, detective. Until tomorrow.

Nope I'm 4 for 5. Wow, amazing, I'm dumbfounded! Your flaws are apparent here, and I've exposed them. Keep digging for nothing here. I never said something about a gang, your putting words into my mouth. Boy, you still are grasping at straws here, eh draccc? Totally ignored my last post, eh draccc? You would be a great politician,eh draccc? Not answering any questions, eh draccc? You haven't any faith in me draccc? I think it's time for your Geritol, eh draccc? How is your Buick doing draccc? You think you can make the trip, eh draccc?

Sincerely, Mr. Nietzsche

Drac Vermell
Drac Vermell

No, detective, the anger you display here is a reflection of the flaws within your own personality. The atrocious behavior that stems from your flaws cannot be excused simply because you believe to be doing that on behalf of the citizens of Keene. Since you don't know the opinions of every citizen in Keene, you can't possibly be speaking for all of them, can you detective? You can only speak for yourself.

And no, detective. I'm still declining to cooperate with you. You keep insisting that this is some sort of gang dispute rather than an disagreement over ideas. You're evidently incapable of discerning the difference between the two. That was why I quoted Nietzsche for you. You've now missed this point two times. The third time is the charm, eh detective? So here it is once again: The visionary lies to himself, the liar only to others. I have absolutely no faith in your ability to understand this detective, but I wish you luck just the same.

Oh. And you're one for five, detective.

Bsizzle

Nope I'm 4 for 5. Let's try this again. What "lies" am I posting here. Please enlighten me, you won't even answer that question. I'm only angered with frustration that you will not admit to the major shortcomings of this cult. The "hate" that I have is the same that is reflected by the citizens of Keene, I am not the only one. That is why I say to get in your Buick and come on down and see for yourself. Do you have anything to say about Rich Paul, JP, Ademo, and others faulty actions, draccc?

BTW, I am certainly not going to take into consideration anything that you post for advice, thanks but I will not accept advice from a delusional person such as yourself.

Drac Vermell
Drac Vermell

But you do want me to pick a side, detective. That's why you keep asking me why I support a group that you hate. It's been the premise of every single one of your replies, this current reply of yours included. Instead of politely asking why I gravitate towards certain ideas, and accepting my answers, you instead perceive it as an evasion and rudely dismiss it. This is unreasonable and atrocious behavior on your part, detective. No one would continue to cooperate with that. So, since I won't be conceding to any of your demands, you'll have to learn these answers you seek in another way. Unfortunately, you lack the patience and charm to do so, so you can expect the mockery from me to continue.

Oh, and you're still one for five, detective. You know the drill.

You really should consider taking Nietzsche's observation to heart, detective. It's a shame that you're clearly too angry to understand it's meaning. I'll post it again anyway, just in case you change your mind

The visionary lies to himself, the liar only to others.

I'll await your next exasperating reply, detective. I suppose it's inevitable.

Bsizzle
Bsizzle

Nope I'm 4 for 5. How easily do I tell "lies"?

I'm not demanding you or anyone else for that matter to pick a side. There is no sides here, that's your words. I'm merely here to show the delusional and cult like actions of this virus in my community. You feverishly defend cleaveland, but when asked about people like JP, Rich Paul, Ademo, and the like, you deflect any questions that I send your way. A man of your intellect should come up with answers yet you avoid them like the plague. That in itself speaks volumes. "Atrocious behavior?" Me? Nope, how about the people I've commented about above, and their behaviors, and the worst out of them all is you draccc, by your support of these derelicts. Their the "liars" and your one of the dopes they sucked in their vortex of delusion. "Until tomorrow, detective?" I "demand" right now, you coming to your own logical conclusion.

Key word is logical.

Drac Vermell
Drac Vermell

But you haven't asked me any questions, detective. You merely keep drawing a line in the sand and then demand that I pick a side. That's not how polite discourse works. You need to make modifications to your atrocious behavior, detective. Until you do this, you'll be obtaining no cooperation from me.

You're also still one for five, detective. It's amazing to me just how easily you tell lies. Maybe you should reflect upon this quote from Nietzsche: "The visionary lies to himself, the liar only to others."

Until tomorrow, detective.

Nope I'm 4 four for five."You didn't ask any questions, detective?" Are you that lazy and feeble minded that you can't answer flat out direct questions just a couple of posts ago? Rich Paul, jp, and Pete Eyre have recently brought to the table an interesting amount of doubts and inconsistencies in the Free State Project, and Free Keene. You have not responded honestly to any of these recent implications. And now with the death of another delusional libertard, just because he didn't pay his taxes, you and all of your in depth arguments that you usually have, have gone silent. What you do not have here is an experiment, it is more like a complete failure. Did I refresh your memory with my questioning? I'm afraid you might have Alzheimer's. I'm waiting for answers not comebacks, your retorts are becoming redundant, and increasingly desperate.

Drac Vermell

You didn't ask any questions, detective. You drew a line in the sand. They're not the same things. No thinking person would ever consider to responding to that.

By the way, detective. You're one for five. This should be of no surprise to you. Well, at least this little experiment of mine isn't a complete bust. Some of my vocabulary has rubbed off on you. Too bad it's just mindless mimicry. Monkey see, monkey do, eh detective?
