Rochelle Kelley Found Not Guilty for COVID Playground Arrest – Full Trial Video

Heroic mom Rochelle Kelley went to trial today and faced up to a year in jail after her arrest for daring to bring her kids to a Concord, NH playground in April of 2020 while the playground was closed due to “governor’s orders”. The courtroom was full of supporters and after the pathetic cops testified, the robed man actually found her not guilty! This is the full trial video, only available here on our Odysee channel:

  1. Props to Rochelle Kelley for standing with reason and justice despite being threatened. And props to everyone who supported her through this — both in-person and from afar.

  2. How absurd, the WHOLE darn situation.
    LOL- they could stay in the park just not on playground! THAT right there was grounds for dropping this BS. Was the boogie virus just surrounding the playground?? Either the park was closed because of being dangerous or not.

    Too much I can say while watching this. Just leave it here – Concord Police Officers aren’t looking too good. The Chief and higher ups aren’t either to put these young officers through this humiliating nonsense. I think if I was any of them I would look for another job and/or career.

  3. Ian – Thank you for recording this so that we can share. I view everything that comes out of Free Keene. You are Patriots, and you don’t suffer fools.

  4. The Judge wearing a mask. (eyeroll) .

  5. Totally agree Bob. It should NOT be allowed. I don’t know how anyone could understand him. Further, it is important to see a face to get some sense of what one is thinking. ANOTHER absurdity. Lack of oxygen brings fog brain, and THAT would be my greatest concern that the judge would get confused and cloudy to make a proper decision and/or drop dead of a heart attack for not having oxygen to his heart. Not THAT would be something!

  6. A fine example of wasting taxe payers dollars for what concord police department can do better this whole case discussed me when I saw it on Facebook and these officers need to be retrained to do their jobs because they work for the people

  7. Wow.
    Thank you for posting this.

  8. So she was saved by the fact that she ultimately did comply with the officer’s orders.

    I’m glad the judge reaffirmed the order to leave as lawful. In the future, she should stay off playgrounds that are closed. I’m sure they are going to put up a lot more signage and do not enter tape in the next lockdown.

    Kathleen, early on in the pandemic there was evidence to suggest that the virus lingers on hard surfaces like playgrounds for a long period of time. Authorities were worried about the potential for playgrounds to act as hotspot for infection. The same risk wasn’t present in the open park to the same extent.

    Also, masks don’t block oxygen. Oxygen is a molecule roughly a third nanometer in size, and one of the smallest components found in air. The average gap in masks appears to be 5 – 200 micrometers. Put another way, the gaps in masks are anywhere from 1,670,000% to 66,700,000% bigger than this molecule depending on the material. If the mask blocked oxygen, it would block air itself.

  9. The embedded video works, but the clickable link to it returns a “no content found” page.

  10. She was lucky on this one. To bad she couldn’t act like an adult in the beginning.

  11. “Also, masks don’t block oxygen…”

    Wow Karl. I guess you didn’t know that there’s a whole branch of physics that was invented to describe this exact type of phenomena. It’s called “fluid dynamics,” by the way.

    Anyway, it turns out that when a volume of air is forced through a porous control surface, resistance forces are created which reduces the flow rate and, in turn, the volume of oxygen that can pass through in a given time interval. That’s why it’s harder to breath when wearing a mask. Pretty cool, huh?

  12. “So she was saved by the fact that she ultimately did comply with the officer’s orders.”

    And the officers testified that she didn’t. How bout that.

    “I’m sure they are going to put up a lot more signage and do not enter tape in the next lockdown.”

    Maybe they’ll consider fences with barbed wire. That’ll keep them out.

    “Authorities were worried about the potential for playgrounds to act as hotspot for infection.”

    I wonder if they looked into the potential for lightning strikes, which is more likely to kill kids than covid.

  13. Ooh, Silvia knows a little bit about fluid dynamics! Color me impressed! If only you paid the same amount of attention to biology as you do physics.

    Anyway, your diaphragm does have to work slightly harder to overcome the flow rate restriction to get the same amount of air in your lungs (emphasis on the slightly, sparkles). It’s mildly uncomfortable if you are not used to it. Ultimately though, you are still breathing in the same amount of air, and as a result your body receives the same amount of oxygen. Therefore, the brain experiences no oxygen deprivation. Have you managed to follow along, dear, or do I need to explain it more simply?

  14. “That’s why it’s harder to breath when wearing a mask. Pretty cool, huh?”

    Yes that is cool. And I’ll add another reason its harder to breathe. Masks trap some exhaled air to be re-inhaled. Exhaled air has about 24% less oxygen and 100X more CO2.

  15. “And the officers testified that she didn’t. How bout that.”

    From their perspective, she didn’t. She had to be told several times to leave the playground. The judge decided to give her the benefit of the doubt because she complied at the end.

    “Maybe they’ll consider fences with barbed wire. That’ll keep them out.”

    At least it will nip the disingenuous argument of “I thought caution tape meant to just be cautious while playing, ha ha” in the bud.

    “I wonder if they looked into the potential for lightning strikes, which is more likely to kill kids than covid.”

    Who says that locking down the playground was only to protect kids?

    It’s funny you mention lightning though, because a lot of building codes require some form of lightning protection. Of course, building codes are from the government… so maybe libertarians should remove lighting protection systems, surge protectors, and lightning rods from their property. That would show ’em.

  16. I’ll let the biology experts here explain why low blood oxygen levels and high blood CO2 levels are bad 😉

  17. “Yes that is cool. And I’ll add another reason its harder to breathe. Masks trap some exhaled air to be re-inhaled. Exhaled air has about 24% less oxygen and 100X more CO2.”

    Oh, this will be fun. How much air is captured and re-inhaled in the mask after exhalation? I know Silvia doesn’t back up what she says, but maybe you will.

  18. “I’ll let the biology experts here explain why low blood oxygen levels and high blood CO2 levels are bad ?”

    But would you believe them? Because they already tried to explain to you why you should wear a mask and get vaccinated, and we all know how that went.

  19. Exactly, Intrigare. 🙂

    Oh, by the way, it turns out Karl was right about one thing – Ian’s church really is bullshit. I mean I prayed and prayed and prayed to God for Him to smite Karl and Jacks for all their sins and stuff and yet here they are again, back to totally being assholes and denying science again.

  20. “The judge decided to give her the benefit of the doubt because she complied at the end.”

    Well, that and some still pretend to believe in innocent until proven guilty. And her leaving at some point is pretty much a given even before the police showed up.

    “At least it will nip the disingenuous argument of “I thought caution tape meant to just be cautious while playing, ha ha” in the bud.”

    Not disingenuous if anyone ever testifies in court that “that meant caution, not closed.”. Of course there are other arguments… like that anyone could have put up that tape even if they weren’t authorized to do so. Then there’s the classic fuck that tape doesn’t rule me argument we could always fall back on.

    “so maybe libertarians should remove lighting protection systems, surge protectors, and lightning rods from their property. That would show ’em.”

    Well Ben Franklin invented the darn things and he’s pretty libertarian so that’s good enough for me.

  21. Silvia, lol

  22. “….back to totally being assholes and denying science again.”

    You should really stop projecting, sweetie. I know that is the bread and butter of right wingers worldwide, but it’s not very good discussion or debate form.

  23. “Well, that and some still pretend to believe in innocent until proven guilty. And her leaving at some point is pretty much a given even before the police showed up.”

    Well, you got the result you wanted. I guess your faith in government is restored.

    “Not disingenuous if anyone ever testifies in court that “that meant caution, not closed.”. Of course there are other arguments…like that anyone could have put up that tape even if they weren’t authorized to do so. ”

    Did either scenario happen though? No.

    “Then there’s the classic fuck that tape doesn’t rule me argument we could always fall back on.”

    There we go. The actual libertarian argument. That’s why the other arguments are disingenuous. You know that your actual position has the maturity of a three year old throwing a tantrum, so you have to make up some bullshit as if nobody could possibly know what yellow tape around a structure could mean.

    “Well Ben Franklin invented the darn things and he’s pretty libertarian so that’s good enough for me.”

    I dunno, that Franklin fella sure seemed like a statist to me. He even helped create the gang that calls itself the government! lol

  24. That’s nice, Karl.

    Anyway, the fact that a mask forces the person wearing them to work harder to breathe was precisely my point. Weird how you didn’t realize that throwing the word “biology” into the mix really doesn’t change the physics of the situation, huh?

  25. “Oh, this will be fun. How much air is captured and re-inhaled in the mask after exhalation?”

    It depends on the amount of empty space between the mask and the wearer’s face, which is significant based on my own observations.

    But I forgot, basing anything on my own observations is automatically bullshit, right? Only experts from the State Science Institute can tell me what to know and think. Well damn. Checkmate.

    “But would you believe them?”

    I’d take it with a grain of salt.

  26. “You know that your actual position has the maturity of a three year old throwing a tantrum”

    Okay, so does the Boston tea party… So I’m still in good company

  27. “Did either scenario happen though? No.”

    Wait, how do you know who put that tape up? It could have been some prankster. It could have been someone who wanted to make a political statement. It could have been a libertarian even (I wouldn’t put it past those guys.) 😉

    That’s one reason it would be an error to always automatically follow tape. And in this case, Rochelle turned out to be right. Violating the tape wasn’t the offense. It was supposedly ignoring a lawful police order, which the robed man found didn’t happen.

  28. Psst Silvia, do you think I should tell Marx that many libertarians believe in minimal government, quite similar to what the founding fathers believed in? Or let him keep going on his anti-anarcho-capitalist tirades thinking all libertarians can feel that burn? Lol.

  29. I wouldn’t risk it, Intrigare. You saw what happened earlier, right? I mean all I did was fix Karl’s science for him because it was all wrong and stupid and stuff and then he yelled at me and said I was “projecting.” God he’s so mean. 😉

  30. In 1736 I lost one of my sons, a fine boy of four years old, by the smallpox taken in the common way. I long regretted bitterly and still regret that I had not given it to him by inoculation. This I mention for the sake of the parents who omit that operation, on the supposition that they should never forgive themselves if a child died under it; my example showing that the regret may be the same either way, and that, therefore, the safer should be chosen.

    An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

  31. “Anyway, the fact that a mask forces the person wearing them to work harder to breathe was precisely my point. Weird how you didn’t realize that throwing the word “biology” into the mix really doesn’t change the physics of the situation, huh?”

    Great. And my point was that the increased difficulty in breathing does not cause oxygen deprivation, which was the original point you tried to contradict. Glad we got that settled, pumpkin.

  32. “It depends on the amount of empty space between the mask and the wearer’s face, which is significant based on my own observations.

    But I forgot, basing anything on my own observations is automatically bullshit, right? Only experts from the State Science Institute can tell me what to know and think. Well damn. Checkmate.”

    You know what, I’m not unreasonable. Your own observations are fine here. What was the volume you measured between the mask and the face? and how did that compare to the volume of air in a full breath? You did make these simple observations, right?

    “Okay, so does the Boston tea party… So I’m still in good company”

    Playing on a closed playground in a pandemic is the same thing as the Boston tea party? lol sure, buddy.

    “Wait, how do you know who put that tape up? It could have been some prankster. It could have been someone who wanted to make a political statement. It could have been a libertarian even (I wouldn’t put it past those guys.) ?”

    If you hear hoofbeats in Kentucky, think horses, not zebras. But you know what? The judge gave her the presumption of innocence and the benefit of the doubt. I’m satisfied with the verdict, and it seems you are as well. I guess the courts aren’t all that bad, eh?

  33. “Psst Silvia, do you think I should tell Marx that many libertarians believe in minimal government, quite similar to what the founding fathers believed in? Or let him keep going on his anti-anarcho-capitalist tirades thinking all libertarians can feel that burn? Lol.”

    So you do believe in government then?

  34. “the safer should be chosen.”

    That’s all we’re trying to do here. Thanks Marx, err Franklin.

    “increased difficulty in breathing does not cause oxygen deprivation,”

    But it could lead to it? There, everyone happy now?

    “You did make these simple observations, right?”

    I didn’t. I do know that ASHRAE recommended limits for CO2 in offices is 800ppm. An exhaled breath contains about 38,000ppm. So with basic math, you can find that 800/38,000 = 2%, so you only need to capture and re-inhale about 2% of your exhaled breath to exceed ASHRAE recommended limits for CO2 in buildings.

    I’d bet we’re re-inhaling more than 2% with masks on, wouldn’t you Karl? Amazing what we can figure out on our own with things like basic math sometimes, eh ? But to be fair, I did rely on experts for the 800ppm and 38,000ppm figures. See, even I am not all anti-science and anti-expert as some may suspect.

    “Playing on a closed playground in a pandemic is the same thing as the Boston tea party? lol sure, buddy”

    Ha I see what you did there. But we were talking about being ruled by tape, remember? Only 3-year-olds aren’t ruled by tape, right?

    “I guess the courts aren’t all that bad, eh?”

    Neither are dice. Am I starting to convince you of this superior system yet? 😉

    “So you do believe in government then?”

    I agree with Thomas Paine here:

    “Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best state is but a necessary evil; in it’s worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer.”

  35. “And my point was that the increased difficulty in breathing does not cause oxygen deprivation…”

    Geez, Karl. So hampering breathing is NOT depriving one’s access to oxygen? Hmm. I don’t see how… Oh. Wait. I get it. I get it. This is just like when you libtard weirdos say gender is fluid, taxes are voluntary, and the word “is” means whatever Bill Clinton says it means as long as it keeps him out of jail, right?

  36. “But it could lead to it? There, everyone happy now?”

    Not from wearing a mask.

    “I’d bet we’re re-inhaling more than 2% with masks on, wouldn’t you Karl? Amazing what we can figure out on our own with things like basic math sometimes, eh ? But to be fair, I did rely on experts for the 800ppm and 38,000ppm figures. See, even I am not all anti-science and anti-expert as some may suspect.”

    I’m curious, Intrigare. Why don’t you actually look up and see what the research says before discounting it? I know for a fact you didn’t. So why not? Do you just make the assumption that it doesn’t agree with you? Why is that?

    “I agree with Thomas Paine here:”

    You mean the guy that advocated for a state-supported welfare system and believed in a labor theory of value? lol okay bud.

  37. “Geez, Karl. So hampering breathing is NOT depriving one’s access to oxygen? Hmm. I don’t see how… Oh. Wait. I get it. I get it. This is just like when you libtard weirdos say gender is fluid, taxes are voluntary, and the word “is” means whatever Bill Clinton says it means as long as it keeps him out of jail, right?”

    The amount of breath that is “hampered” from wearing a mask is so small as to be insignificant for normal breathing. Nice try though.

  38. Ha ha ha. “Normal breathing.” Good one, Karl. Wow, must be nice to have access to a lexicon where words can mean whatever you want them to mean at any given moment, am I right?

    Besides, everyone knows you libtard weirdos only wear masks when the cameras are on or when you’re trying to impress one of those pierced-up, purple-haired feminazis Rush Limbaugh used to warn us about.

    Anyway, ya really wanna impress a girl, Karl? Well turns out nunchucks are way cooler than masks. Just tell her how many hours you practice with those things and she’ll be sliding outta her Old Navies before you can say “So you’re a vegan? No kiddin’? I’m a vegan too!” No joke.

  39. Yup, as opposed to the weak breathing experienced by those on a ventilator. You might find out one day what I mean by that.

    I’m gay, Silvia. Why do I need to impress a girl? I didn’t think you of all people needed a reminder.

  40. You’re a homo, Karl? God that’s so awesome. Congratulations, by the way.

    Anyway, thank God you were able to hold back the urge to announce that you’re a teacher or a nurse or an atheist or something. You libtard weirdos are just insufferable about that sort of thing, aren’tcha?

    Oh, and Karl? Don’tcha worry your pretty little head about me getting covid and dying and stuff. Turns out I’m one of those 99% who’s immune to it. Pretty cool, huh?

  41. Silvia, we had a whole conversation about this. Did you forget? Or are you not the real Silvia? You helped me see the light darling, remember?

    Anyway, I already mentioned what I do for a living. I work for the FBI. I am also a card carrying member of Antifa. We’ve already infiltrated the government lol. Don’t worry though, the card is recyclable and biodegradable.

    I think your percentage of immunity is a bit high, but congrats on getting vaccinated! I knew you’d do the right thing eventually.

  42. I forget the particulars.. But she just send like a jerk to me

  43. Wait. You mean to tell me you have all those high-paying government jobs AND you’re a queer? Geez. Must be nice to not be discriminated against, huh? But then again, we both know who the government really wants to focus their discrimination against, now don’t we? Ha ha. I’m just messin’ with ya, Karl. I know you libtard weirdos aren’t supposed to talk about that sort of thing out loud.

    Anyway, Karl, turns out I didn’t need a covid vaccination to acquire immunity. That’s cuz 99% of the population is already immune to it naturally. Awesome, right?

    Oh, before I go, quick question for ya – if the vaccine is so effective and stuff, then why do you libtard weirdos always feel the need to pretend that you’re so deathly afraid of the unvaccinated? I mean, it’s not like you’re gonna catch anything once you get the jabs, am I right?

  44. “I’m curious, Intrigare. Why don’t you actually look up and see what the research says before discounting it? I know for a fact you didn’t. So why not?”

    Because I used math to find that CO2 levels while wearing masks exceeds ASHRAE recommendations for CO2 in offices? Does it bother you that I didn’t just let someone else tell me what the answer is and go with it?

    “You mean the guy that advocated for a state-supported welfare system and believed in a labor theory of value? lol okay bud.”

    Yeah, that guy. Afterall, he should have more credibility with you, since you believe in all that collectivist crap right? Not to mention a founder of the United States and its accompanying legal system we either consent to or expatriate. Just trying to find common ground here bud.

  45. Hey Silvia, you’d think Marx would give his pro-totalitarianism rhetoric a rest for a while, eh? Especially since the humiliating loss in Afghanistan and all.

  46. “Anyway, Karl, turns out I didn’t need a covid vaccination to acquire immunity. ”

    Oh? How did you do that then? Wishes and dreams? Thoughts and prayers? Are you superwoman?

    “That’s cuz 99% of the population is already immune to it naturally. Awesome, right?”

    Considering there have been 32 million cases so far in a country of 328 million, this is laughably incorrect. Get Intrigare to do the math for you on this one. He’s pretty good at simple math.

    “Oh, before I go, quick question for ya – if the vaccine is so effective and stuff, then why do you libtard weirdos always feel the need to pretend that you’re so deathly afraid of the unvaccinated? I mean, it’s not like you’re gonna catch anything once you get the jabs, am I right?”

    You do know that viruses mutate rapidly right? And the more that people get sick, the more chances for it to mutate. These mutations could alter the part that the vaccines target, rendering the vaccine ineffective. So yeah, the unvaccinated represent a significant risk to public health. If we all got vaccinated, then the virus would not have the chance to mutate, and we could move on. But a bunch of babies are afraid of the pokey stick, so here we are.

  47. Lol, Intrigare. Rub it in Karl’s face, why don’tcha? 😉

  48. “Oh? How did you do that then? Wishes and dreams? Thoughts and prayers? Are you superwoman?”

    Hi Karl. I see you’re back on my computer screen trying to lure me into joining your covid cult again, huh? Wow. You don’t react well to rejection, do you?

    Anyway, turns out I’m immune due to the statistics reported by the CDC. You see, Karl, covid mostly only causes severe symptoms in people who are over 80. If you’re younger than that, chances are any symptoms one might experience won’t be any different from those of the common cold.

    I know. I know. Pope Saint Fauci the Great (may he live forever) says we should all wear three masks and coat ourselves in Purell and vaccinate ourselves once a month. Thing is though, I have a lot of trouble trusting someone who’s had more than enough time to rack up some successes to his name and yet has proven to be nothing more than a mediocrity throughout his entire career.

    “Considering there have been 32 million cases so far in a country of 328 million, this is laughably incorrect. ”

    Nope. There were 32M people who tested positive on a PCR test, Karl. Tests that were used incorrectly, I might add. In order for a “case,” to exist, one has to exhibit symptoms. An important distinction. And one that you libtard weirdos choose to ignore because, to you guys, words only mean what you want them to mean at the given moment.

    “You do know that viruses mutate rapidly right?”

    I know that RNA viruses mutate rapidly.

    “And the more that people get sick, the more chances for it to mutate.”

    Uh huh.

    “These mutations could alter the part that the vaccines target, rendering the vaccine ineffective.”

    God I’m so hot for you right now.

    “So yeah, the unvaccinated represent a significant risk to public health. If we all got vaccinated, then the virus would not have the chance to mutate, and we could move on.”

    I have a little problem with your reasoning here, Karl. I mean according to your model anyway, the vaccinated will always pose a risk as well – you know, cuz the virus keeps mutating and all. Seems to me, the only way to stay ahead of those mutations is to vaccinate everyone in the world all at the same time – including all those Mexicans migrating across the southern border, by the way. 😉

    “But a bunch of babies are afraid of the pokey stick, so here we are.”

    Got it, Karl. It’s all the unvaccinated’s fault. Don’tcha dare blame libtard weirdo cult leaders like Andrew Cuomo, Gretchen Whitmer, Rachel Levine, Tom Wolf, Phil Murphy, or especially the Gain of Function Minister himself – Pope Saint Fauci the Great, Patron Saint of Wuhan.

  49. the comments section of fk is really a clown show.. full of clowns

  50. clownish conversations with disembodied mental case voices… and yet …there are “people” that do it… i dont know that they can be called people …id argue that they cant be called people…disembodied clown voices is a better name.. That really think they have something to say (to other disembodied clowns) lol

Care to comment?
