FBI Returns Video Camera Confiscated During Raid!


No longer in FBI custody.

It’s been just over a month since the FBI, state police, and Keene police raided the Free Talk Live and LRN.FM studio in a search for alleged child pornography.  They confiscated dozens of storage devices and computers and though we don’t expect them to find any child porn, we also didn’t expect to get anything back anytime soon.  Apparently these investigations can take months or as much as a year or more.  (It took the DEA nine months to arrest the owners of Phat Stuff after their raid.)

However, in a pleasantly unexpected development, the FBI has returned the video camera I use to record court hearings and other various activism, the Canon HF-G30, when my attorney requested it!

When they were searching the house and found the camera, I asked them to google it to make sure it didn’t have any internal storage (it doesn’t), but they refused and confiscated it anyway.  So, given how little they cared at the time, I didn’t expect to see it again for a year.

They were certainly not required to accede to the request, but they did.  Thank you to the US attorney and FBI lead agent Scott Bailey.  Hopefully this is the beginning of our vindication and a good sign for the return of our church’s equipment sooner rather than later.

  1. Glad to hear you got something back, hope you get it all back soon.

  2. Police took my ex mother in law’s computer when we found her husband looking at child porn, that was over 8yrs ago & she still never got her computer back & he’s never been charged

  3. It is far from over. They just didn’t find anything on the camera. There is a lot of computers that were confiscated to go through. This all means they are going through each piece of equipment you own.

  4. thats jus stealing. damn.

  5. Good for you Ian to get your prized camera back, the one that you record wasted hours of people’s court cases and post some of them to try to seem relevant. It’s also the same camera that you have used to stick in the faces of a honest hard working individuals, unlike yourself, to do nothing else but get a reaction out them, which for the most part is negativity towards your pitiful group of “peaceful activists “. It’s the same camera that you have used to base your front page on, Robinhooding. What happened Ian, you or your friends aren’t doing that noble “job” that cast you into the media spotlight anymore, that and chalking up downtown Keene. Keep up the good work with that camera, I can’t wait to see what other lame brained idea your going to come up with to “seem” relevant.

  6. Jumping quacks stop free keen fuck face fuck you and your obsessive stalkin little idiotic low lifes . You claim activists are useless well here you are being a loser trol while eating meals on wheels.
    Jumping Jacks

  7. Jumping Jacks don’t bother with the little man that has a phobia of being a mountain man, aka Matt Phillips. He claims that you are supported by meals on wheels, yet this deadbeat father of multiple children is on EBT.
    Also he claims to have served in the military as a exonerated wounded navy seal, which has turned out to be false on stated court documents. So take what this delusional psychopath has to offer with a grain of salt.
    Jp how do you sleep at night knowing that you have abandoned so many of your offspring?

  8. I wonder were Drac Vermell has gone?
    I guess he has jumped ship from Free Keene.

  9. GMannn Am I really still all that you think about, Michael dear? My my, lamb, you really do seem to have a great deal of trouble focusing on the important things in your life, now don’t you? I wonder why it is that you still can’t seem to stop obsessing over the people that make you so angry? Don’t you think you should start taking your life-lessons from others who are more successful than you, Michael dear? Take Jacks for instance. Jacks owns sixteen drug addiction rehabilitation centers throughout the continental United States, yet all you do is hang drywall at the local Hannaford. Jacks is so successful in fact that he’s able to dine at the finest restaurants and will be able to retire before he’s 50! Now that’s how you measure success! If you applied yourself, Michael dear, I know you could be just as successful as Jacks is! So what are your plans, lamb? I hope they don’t involve dropping my name periodically in hopes of convincing yourself that your life has greater meaning than it actually does? That would make me very sad for you.

  10. Damn Road Pirates!
