In a followup to their previous two videos, one published to youtube and another to their official website, the bureaucrats behind the Democratic People’s Republic of Keene have crafted a new video message denouncing a Cheshire superior court judge’s ruling in their lawsuit against the merry people associated with Robin Hood of Keene. The ruling that was handed down on December 3 determined that no civil claims were legally actionable given the protections granted in the first amendment of the US constitution. The judge declined to elaborate on implications which may or may not be granted by the more eloquent NH state constitution.
The new piece of content by the City people is brief and to the point. Commemorating the re-elected person who won the mayor contest, the video also serves as a new year’s update from the officials and to the civilianry that is claimed representative dominion over. Meanwhile in DPRK, Robin Hooding continues unabated.

News came out yesterday following a press conference that the state of New Hampshire was sponsoring a special edition vodka in a decorate new bottle featuring the late Old Man of the Mountain. At 29.99usd, the maple-syrup bottlesque hard liquor was made available to state liquor dispensaries in Concord, but likely will not be arriving into the Cheshire county area until Friday. Profits attained from the drug sales will be directed towards repairing dilapidated flags of some historical value. Walking through the local liquor store in search of the bottle to document, I was amazed at how casually the state promotes and distributes the world’s most destructive drug. How long could it possibly be before a New Hampshire governor introduces an official state strain of cannabis to the public in celebration of the holiday season? The Nashua Telegraph captured some video from the parodist press conference. No mentions of liquor or drug-related issues facing New Hampshire are mentioned in many of the corporate news stories republishing the state’s alcohol marketing through the frame of selling “commemorative bottles”.

In an undated video uploaded today to the Ridley Report, Peter ‘Sturdy’ Thomas, a member of the three-person board of selectman in Dublin, tucks his head, shuffles a flight of stairs and grumbles a question away with, “I’m not answering any questions from you.”
While it would be exposing, but not completely unprecedented to have observed any other politician behave in such a way, Peter’s behavior seems to demonstrate a desire to conceal, especially given his own activities behind a camera as part of DPRK‘s case against Robin Hood of Keene. While he was sometimes friendly when dealing with myself, in videos where he meets other Robin Hooders he displayed a relatively hostile tone and behaved as though he was entitled to deliver orders to others around him. During his time filming he was even shoved by a passing female pedestrian who said nothing to him while Peter was filming a Robin Hooder and an enforcer on a North Main Street sidewalk. He called out to the person and the retired detective presumably flashed a badge, or some sort of authority symbol. On one occasion he took to asking interrogatory questions about specifically who pays for what different tools used in the process of Robin Hooding. In other encounters with Ian Freeman, he would refuse to disclose that he was working for the city when directly asked, and would repeat a drone-like opening greeting in response to any questions.
On one occasion in which Peter and myself conversed in the city hall parking garage, he was quick to tell me that he was proud of all of his conduct over the course of his career in police work. Generally trustworthy as firm words may be, I found his eagerness to avoid the discussion of unnecessary conflict revealing of a potential lack of self-reflection.
Seeing Ridley’s video, actions speak volumes over Peter’s words.
For video captured by Peter ‘Sturdy’ Thomas and used by unknown City of Keene bureaucrats in a public relations campaign against Robin Hooders, check out AKPF #1 episode 08 Dolus. The entire records request received from DPRK officials of Peter Thomas’ over six hours of Robin Hooding footage is available on a playlist at Fr33manTVraw. Read more

A new twenty-nine minute art film to be aired on Cheshire TV has premiered on the AquaKeene youtube channel. Render Unto Obamacoin takes an anthological approach to the hefty subject of Obama Coin. In this new age of competing digital currencies, the old method of physical storage of material value reaches its bottom in the popular wave of Obamacoins that swept the market in some areas of the american united states following the forty-fourth commander-in-chief’s installment. The federal reserve coins painted gold and plastered with stickers of Barack Obama’s profile sold for a significant factor more than their face value after appearing on disturbing television infomercials. Render Unto Obamacoin explores themes of consumerism and youth exploitation in political propaganda over the course of its twenty nine minute runtime. Share your favorite currency, including Obamacoin, with a loved one this December festivals season. All content featured in the film was sourced from YouTube and released to the creative commons of the world.

If you have been following the blog here at Free Keene for the last 18 months, you may recall the raid on the Keene Activist Center that occurred in the summer of 2012. The Keene-police-backed raid by code enforcement and the fire department ultimately resulted in a court case against me for an alleged smoke alarm violation. (They claimed that all homes must have an interconnected, AC-powered smoke alarm system.)
We went to court and the “City of Keene” ultimately lost because I caught them violating their own rules – fire chiefs aren’t allowed by their own statutes to inspect single and two-family homes. Judge Runyon correctly invalidated all the evidence collected by the fire chief and dismissed the case. “The City” people, desperate to crush the KAC and hating to lose in their own system, then appealed to the NH “supreme” court, spending hundreds of taxpayer dollars on a transcript of the district court hearings.
The supreme court then informed “the City” that their filing was deficient because all criminal cases must have the approval of the attorney general’s office prior to the appeal being filed. They gave “the City” some time to correct the error. Meanwhile, “the City” and the AG’s office filed memorandums of law arguing the case was not criminal, but civil, and therefore they did not need the AG’s permission to move ahead with the appeal.
Ultimately, the court’s “justices” disagreed with “the City’s” arguments and ruled the case is indeed criminal and so “the City” must get the AG’s approval by Nov 7th. The approval was never given. Therefore, the supreme court dismissed the case. I and the KAC win! (Of course, I’ve lost lots of time and effort I could have spent on other things.)
The fact that “the City” couldn’t even win their smoke alarm case at the supreme court against me may not bode well for their eventual performance in the Robin Hood case appeal, where they are actually against a real, experienced free speech attorney!

Word from DPRK officials speaking through the Keene Sentinel have affirmed their interest in continuing onward with the Robin Hood lawsuit, despite its defeat at the superior court level. It is poised now to go before the New Hampshire supreme court, if the state’s mega-court chooses to hear the case. Though the appeal has yet to be filed, this is a great time to congratulate the CoK leaders for possessing the courage and fortitude necessary to subject themselves to more public courtroom festivities on this matter and thank them for keeping the cause of Robin Hood of Keene ever alive.
Following the coverage in the Keene Sentinel, the Concord Monitor published a truncated copy of their article the following day. Concord’s abbreviated coverage removes all statements made by the city’s hired-gun attorney Charles Bauer following the judge’s ruling. Bauer makes some controversial statements regarding the decision that the legal assistant of the Keene city attorney was unable to lend any support to, choosing instead not to comment on the interpretation made by Charlie. As quoted, he stated, “The Order holds that the individual protesters have no duty to be reasonable in their actions and conduct directed toward public employees while doing their jobs…that the individual protesters are allowed to interfere, harass, and intimidate public employees while doing their jobs…(and) that the individual protesters may engage in inappropriate and unreasonable actions and conduct directed at public employees while doing their jobs.” Free Concord is currently seeking to obtain the full statement to press by the losing side’s attorney and will have more to report as information becomes available.

Robin Hood and the Merry Men and Women are victorious over the lying, corrupt “City of Keene” in BOTH Robin Hood cases! The first civil case was filed by “the City” back in May seeking a preliminary injunction against the six named respondents, in hopes banning them from being near, speaking to, or recording video of the parking enforcers. It was heard over three full days of court “evidentiary hearings” later in the summer and afterwards, heroic free speech attorney Jon Meyer filed a motion to dismiss the case.
Attorney Meyer’s motion has now been granted in a 17-page notice of decision from Cheshire “superior” court judge John C Kissinger Jr., which also dismisses the second civil case against us that was filed by “the City” in September, seeking monetary “damages”. The second suit proved what we all knew and the city people had originally denied with their first lawsuit – that ultimately this was about their lost parking revenue.
Ultimately, the Robin Hooders have been completely vindicated. The city people were lying (as is typical of governments) when they claimed Robin Hooders were harassing, intimidating, and threatening their parking enforcement agents. Again, the proof that they were lying is that no Robin Hooder has ever been arrested for “harassment”. Even if Robin Hooders were saying nasty things (no evidence of that was presented in court, and I’ve never seen it happen), the job description of the parking enforcers makes it clear they must put up with “mental and verbal abuse” from members of the public. The city people tried to illegally oppress our right to free speech and to hold government agents accountable for their actions, and the court made the right decision and dismissed their frivolous, aggressive, unconstitutional cases against us.
