VIDEO: Pack of Cops Attack Hungry Students Long After Pumpkin Fest 2014 Riots

After I got off-the-air from my live Saturday radio program (on which we discussed the initial Pumpkin Fest 2014 riots), I headed back down to the college. At the time, there was a helicopter broadcasting a message to disperse or be arrested. I arrived at the gateway to Keene State College – Winchester St. to witness a huge throng of police marching down the street. I quickly pulled out my camera and began to record:

 

circumvent-the-copsAfter walking around the nearest building on campus, in full view of the line of police, activists walked onto campus and right back over to Winchester St.  We continued walking west on Winchester and no cops said anything to us there.  However, we again went on campus and came back out on Madison St., on the west end of the college.  Here there were several police standing around the intersection and one of them told me we couldn’t pass, despite college students walking down Winchester St. immediately behind them.

More Footage of Pumpkin Fest Riots + News Reports: RT, WCVB

Some of the best independent video of the Pumpkin Fest 2014 riots that I’ve seen thus far is on the newly created “Pumpkin Fest” channel, which shows the scale of the mobs of partiers on various streets around the college during the day.  Late in the footage night has fallen as the cameraman appears to be on the second story of a home on Winchester St. as he records a throng of police tromping in formation eastbound.  I’ll have more from that scene from my vantage point at the traffic circle in a later post:

Rich Paul, fresh out of jail with Chris Cantwell

Rich Paul is out of jail! With the consent of the over-burdened-with-cases probation department and superior court judge John C Kissinger, Rich recently spent a few extra months in jail in order to no longer have probation when he got out. (Though he is still on a suspended sentence.)  Activists convoyed out and picked him up this morning at 6am, then stopped by Central Square to enjoy a smoke, followed by breakfast downtown.  Later today, Rich will have lunch with friends.

Raw video of his release is up at Fr33mantvRAW.  Rich is excited to get started expanding NH Jury as an activist and outreach organization.

In the photo, Rich is seen this morning at the Free Streets Project with neighbor Christopher Cantwell.

Don’t miss Rich speaking at Keenevention 2014 this October 31st through November 2nd – tickets are available now for $60 USD or BTC. Pre-event ticketing is limited to just 100, so don’t wait until the day-of to buy!
