On June 7th, 2016 residents of the west side of Manchester NH in the neighborhood of Rimmon Heights joined in a protest at the Manchester City Hall. They were protesting the police militarization tactics and shelter in place order that was issued on May 13th after a suspect was caught in a shooting and lasted for nearly five hours. For one day martial law was in place where police were seen throughout Rimmon Heights patrolling with automatic weapons, road blocks at almost every intersection, and helicopters overhead. Carla Gericke current candidate for NH State Senate and president of the Foundation for New Hampshire Independence did a speech outside of City Hall during the protest about de-escalation and community policing instead of daily lockdowns and heavily armed law enforcement officers lurking everywhere. Multiple west side residents also spoke during the city council meeting to voice their concerns at the actions of the Manchester Police department.

In this week’s episode, the Rebel Love Crew covers the protest that took place earlier in the very same night at the Manchester City Hall. The protest was led by Carla Gericke, the president of the Foundation for New Hampshire Independence. The protest focused on the militarization of the Manchester PD and the lock down of the west side of Manchester earlier this year. The Rebel Love Crew plays multiple videos on on air that were recorded at the protest including from within the city council meeting.

Manchester has recently been the site of some major police state tactics including lockdowns and checkpoints. Tonight beginning at 6:00pm, Manchester-area activists and Cop Blockers will be holding a press conference at 6:30pm, then various members of the West Manchester community will be testifying to the city council about their experience in the recent police state activity. Here’s the full event announcement from Foundation for NH Independence president Carla Gericke:
Is the Manchester Police Department on the Warpath?
Concerned Manchester residents will gather at City Hall Plaza on Elm Street at 6PM on Tuesday, June 7th, 2016, to discuss the increasing use of military-style occupation tactics and deployment of military-grade equipment on the streets of Manchester, NH.
MPD Police Chief Nick Willard says, “crime is down 20 percent in Manchester,” yet in the past 3 weeks:
- 8 Manchester schools have been placed under lockdown;
- MPD has deployed its SWAT team and armored BEARCAT at least twice;
- One home was tear-gassed;
- At least 3 helicopters clamored over the city for hours after an entire neighborhood of 30,000 people was placed on lockdown with a shelter-in-place order for more than 5 hours after the suspect had been apprehended.
In Manchester, a city with a population of 110,000 that often ranks highly in affordability and livability, the past few weeks have seemed like a war zone. (more…)
A little courage, a video camera, and a handmade sign was all it took to defeat a state trooper’s speed trap in Alstead recently. Eleven-year-old Mikey captured this video of him handling a state trooper like an experienced Cop Blocker. Ademo has the full story here at CopBlock.
According to Rich, the police seemed disappointed they didn’t bust any heroin and would have been willing to issue them summonses and release them on the scene, but Rich’s passenger did not have ID on him, so they were taken back to the police station for booking. Ultimately they were released on PR bail and issued court dates. Both have been charged with Class A misdemeanors for possession, which means they could take this to a jury trial, unless the state reduces the charges to Class B.
If it does go in front of a jury, it will be the first time an NH liberty activist has gone to jury trial for simple possession. Rich is looking forward to his chance at a jury trial, especially since he is a minister of the Church of the Invisible Hand and considers cannabis to be a sacrament.
One big, and as-yet-unanswered question is whether the state will motion the court to impose Rich’s suspended sentence from his previous conviction for selling cannabis. Stay tuned here for the latest.
The suspect appears to be the same person as this Facebook profile based upon the following facts:
1) Same Name
2) Same Location
3) A comparison of the following photos (first from police, second from his facebook profile:
Upon researching the suspect, it appears that he was convinced that he had a computer chip (Brain Computer Interface or BCI) implanted in his brain. Here is a video where he appears to be detecting the “illegally implanted […] silk BCI and a long-range wireless radio-frequency transmitter-receiver” with a “RF detector meter.” He also appears to have posted a link where to buy the detector.
It is very difficult to figure out exactly what MacPherson believed. On his scribd.com page he posted multiple documents that appear to state his concerns. One document, “Genocide – Enemy Combatants in USA Witness Testimonial” is a 682 page document in which MacPherson appears to be providing a “witness statement” and reaching out to government workers to try to warn them about genocide, brain computer interfaces, surgical implants being implanted in civilians, the “Axis Terrorist Faction,” “Terrorist plans to assassinate police and military,” “Italian-axis complicity in the 9-11 Terrorist attacks,” and other concerns. In this document, he claims to have had a chip implanted in his skull, “later during 2007 : a ‘liquid Potassium supplement’ was given to me at a Hospital which later turned out to be a sedative ; this was an orange milky substance that tasted like orange-creamsicle but was a sedative. After this dixie-cup of liquid sedative was fed to me : I was Human-Vivisected by a NeuroSurgery team whom implanted a prosthetic NeuroCircuit Patch in my skull which grafted on to the surface of my brain and a Surgical-Implant Router & Battery which sum-total is a Brain-Computer-Interface.” (more…)
