Is de-listing sex offenders even possible? Lawsuit claims it is

Maybe we should call it a war between sex offender advocates?

Strange lawsuit filed in a local federal court: A Texas-based service that claims to help sexual offenders get off the state registry that limits where they can live and work is suing a Boynton Beach nonprofit that wants to loosen registry rules.

Keene “Sanctuary City” Resolution Hearing – Full Video

Free Keene - Sat, 2017-10-14 15:26 +0000

On Thursday evening, a very large crowd turned out to speak to the city council’s FOP committee on a proposed resolution to make Keene a “sanctuary city”. I’m happy to say that not a single police state xenophobe spoke during the hearing. Every speaker was pro-immigrant. Here’s video of the entire hearing:

Earlier this year, Cheshire County Sheriff Eli Rivera made headlines by announcing his policy to not assist the federal government with immigration enforcement activities targeting peaceful migrants. That made Cheshire county into NH’s only “sanctuary county”.

Now, the City of Keene is considering a resolution proposed by Keene Immigration and Refugee Partnership that would encourage Keene police only to assist federal agents in apprehending allegedly violent suspects or have an outstanding warrant.

The resolution is well-intended and everyone in the packed council chambers supported it, but it doesn’t go far enough. First, it allows for Keene police to assist the federal immigration enforcement if they merely have a warrant, which aren’t hard for police to get with rubber-stamp courts. Second, the city’s new manager, Elizabeth Dragon, is claiming the city government can’t tell police what to do, per some state statute. That’s not exactly the whole truth, since the council is able to pass certain ordinances that the police are directed to enforce. While they may not legally be able to tell a police chief what not to enforce, they certainly have the ability to have the city manager fire anti-immigrant police, don’t they? Perhaps there are union protections in place to make that difficult, I don’t know.

MALIC Center Imam Will Coley Speaks to the Committee

According to the Keene Sentinel, new Keene police chief Steven Russo has not specifically commented on the resolution’s proposals, though the group behind the proposal, KIRP, has said they’ve had a positive meeting with him.

At Thursday evening’s FOP meeting, after 100% support from the speakers there and many rounds of applause for those who spoke, the councilors on the committee voted 5-0 to give more time to the issue, specifically asking city staff to meet with KIRP and finalize the language of the proposed resolution.

Stay tuned here to Free Keene for the latest on this developing story. For more media coverage of the meeting, check out the Sentinel’s story by reporter Paul Cuno-Booth.

NHHRC Takes to the Streets for Drug-Related Harm Reduction

Free Keene - Tue, 2017-10-10 02:38 +0000

One of the things you hear before moving to New Hampshire is that, in many cases, the locals are as passionate about peaceful solutions to the world’s problems as the liberty activists are. I found this hard to believe until I actually moved here, but recent events reminded me just how true it is.

My father, Bill Davis, moved up here several months ago not as a part of the great freedom migration, but to be closer to his grand kids. You can imagine my surprise, then, when he came back from his new church excited about an opportunity to help local intravenous drug users via a strategy of harm reduction. I was even more surprised to learn that one of the people representing this organization was a former NHLA endorsed liberty representative to the State House!

The organization that came to my Dad’s church is called the New Hampshire Harm Reduction Coalition, and their plan is a simple one: to hit the streets of some areas known to be afflicted with the opioid crisis to try and help drug users do less harm to themselves. They planned to hand out fliers to interested parties about what to do in the event of an overdose, offer clean needles and filters for their drugs (many users apparently use cigarette filters instead of something cleaner), educate users about the proper use of Naloxone (AKA Narcan), and most of all, show people that they are worthy of care and attention in spite of whatever choices they might be making in their lives.

On Friday night their interesting crew – my dad, former drug users, nursing students, and a doctor went out into a Seacoast town and handed out flyers and fresh needles to several enthusiastic parties. At one point they interacted with a woman for a while before the police ultimately drove up to speak with her. My father said the police were very professional and helpful – curious about the NHHRC’s intentions and grateful once they found out.

One wonders if the NHHRC activists inspired the same attitude of harm reduction in the responding officers. Either way, all parties involved seemed to be thinking compassionately about the woman involved. Bill would tell me that he was very impressed by the attitude of these officers, and believes that they will have a fruitful relationship in this mutual effort of harm reduction going forward. The NHHRC plans to go out weekly to help these people who so desperately need it.

I reached out to Bill to make sure I didn’t screw up any of the details, and he offered a few more thoughts and insights.

“Important movements start with just a few people trying things, and while this is just in its early gestation, there is such a need for help in this area,” he said. “I really think this sort of help could be like a snowball rolling down hill – if enough people demonstrate real care for drug users, maybe they will finally get the help they need.”

“It can seem awkward and hard, but we didn’t meet any resistance. I think it means a lot to those afflicted with drug addiction to encounter people who don’t want to throw them in jail, or shame them, or tell them what to do. It means a lot to meet people who want to keep them healthy. I hope that being helpful and understanding might implicitly encourage them to take the next step and get the additional help they need.”

Amen.

I’m very grateful to live in a place where there are so many activists, each tackling the issues that is important to him or her. And I’m very grateful to the NHHRC – thank you so much for showing this level of love to the unloved. I’m glad you’re out there helping one drug user at a time, and firmly believe the example you’re setting is the best chance we currently have in ending the opioid epidemic in New Hampshire once and for all.

New Hampshire Mosque Reaches $11,000 Matching Goal, Shifts Focus to Bitcoin Donations

Free Keene - Sun, 2017-10-08 20:02 +0000

Will Coley Conducting his Ramadan Dawah at Porcfest

Two weeks ago, the Shire Free Church offered to match contributions to Will Coley’s ongoing fundraiser to launch the MALIC Center, New Hampshire’s soon to be first full-time mosque. It was announced that donations would be matched up to the goal at the time, which was $11,000.

I’m happy to announce that in the last two weeks not only did we exceed the goal, but also the total number of contributors increased over 40% to over 130. The repairs and upgrades of the house in question that will become the Masjid al Latiff and Interfaith Community Center are ongoing and being covered by both the Shire Free Church and the MALIC Center together. Due to the additional work required, Will has bumped up the goal of his fundraiser to $15,000. While he’ll certainly accept donations in US Dollars, he’s hoping to finish out the fundraiser with cryptocurrencies and become the first mosque in the world to open with half their budget consisting of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. Based on our research, it may be the first publicly known bitcoin-accepting mosque in the world. If you know of another, please post in the comments.

Keene’s Bitcoin Community is Front Page News!

“We don’t want to feed the war machine in any way” – Will Coley

Will explained in an interview for Free Keene, that as a peace-oriented religion, using bitcoin is a great way to avoid feeding the violent federal government, since cryptocurrencies decentralize the power of money into the people’s hands. Current bitcoin donations to the fundraiser have gone towards electronics purchases for running live video from the mosque. Soon, bitcoin will be spent on contractors for upcoming improvements to the property. Will describes Keene as a “bitcoin community” and says that he loves how easy it is to spend bitcoin in Keene. (Keene is the as-yet-undisputed number one city in the world for bitcoin-accepting businesses per capita.)

Thus far in the fundraiser Will has received over one bitcoin and some DASH and ether, totaling around $5,000 in cryptocurrencies. Should you wish to give, the bitcoin donation address is 14eFNWDcAhNeT4HPwd7ps2CcAAz7u68ABP

Stay tuned here to Free Keene for more on the MALIC Center’s upcoming launch. There’s no date set at the moment.

Shielded ZCash Transaction at NH Retail Store

Free Keene - Tue, 2017-10-03 03:48 +0000

A customer purchased a “Live Free or Die” wood plaque and a “Legalize Gay Marijuana” bumper sticker at the Free State Bitcoin Shoppe in Portsmouth, New Hampshire using an encrypted digital currency called ZCash. The cryptocurrency is the most private money ever created, relying on a complex mathematical principle called a “Zero-Knowledge Proof”. Essentially this customer took some digital cash, locked it in a box with a secret key, and sent the shop the key. There is no discernible trail left. No observer can look up the transaction on the blockchain, not even those who know the sending/receiving addresses. Pretty slick! Here’s what it looked like:

This marks yet another turning point for human freedom. An evolution on the creation of bitcoin, this new cryptocurrency offers features and advantages that bitcoin simply doesn’t. While many are still holding fast to the promises of failing Federal Reserve Notes, others are seeking alternatives and building more reliable systems that make extortion far more difficult.

NH Documentary “Victimless Crime Spree” Celebrates Five Years – Q&A With Director & Producer

Free Keene - Mon, 2017-10-02 03:21 +0000

Ian, Darryl (our lucky poster raffle winner!), and Derrick J at the 5th Anniversary Screening

A couple of weeks ago on a Sunday evening, after the grand opening of the Free State Bitcoin Shoppe, dozens of people gathered in the Seacoast Repertory Theater in Portsmouth, NH to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the theatrical premiere of “Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree“!

After the screening, we gave away one of the few existing DJVCS movie posters to a lucky attendee and then director and star of the movie, Derrick J Freeman and I took a bunch of questions from the audience. We reflected on the last five years, where we are now, and looked to the future of the exciting, growing New Hampshire Freedom Migration.

Here’s the full video of the Q&A, in case you couldn’t be there:

What a pleasure and an honor it has been to executive produce this movie, working with the amazing talents of Derrick J Freeman and editing pro Beau Davis. I’m especially grateful to all the people who love and share Victimless Crime Spree with their friends and family. The pro-freedom message and spirit of the movie is infectious and fun, despite its ultimately sad ending. It’s an important documentary, and the first to come out of the community of libertarian migrants to the Shire. (In case you haven’t seen it, the second such documentary, also edited by Beau Davis, is “101 Reasons Liberty Lives in New Hampshire“.)

Here’s to another five years of new people seeing Victimless Crime Spree, becoming more libertarian, and ultimately migrating to New Hampshire!

Here are some more pics from the 5th anniversary screening:

Please send Chris money.

Christopher Cantwell - Mon, 2017-10-02 02:07 +0000

This is a piece written by a volunteer for this website that was not suggested by Chris.

Chris is currently in jail as a political prisoner for what happened in Charlottesville. He could have done what a lot of people such as myself did that night, and just stayed home, watched what was happening on the livestreams, then talked about it non-stop on social media and on his podcast. Had he done that, his personal life would be so much better right now. He would be in his house doing the podcast 3-5 days per week. Instead, he risked everything going out there.

Since then, lots of bad things happened to him. He was banned from Facebook, Instagram, and OkCupid. He was lied about in the media who referred to him the “crying nazi” despite the fact that Chris is not a nazi. He has also lost access to his paypal account which will make it harder for him to receive payments when he gets out. He’s being held in jail being denied bail despite the fact the first judge granted it to him and that the prosecution appealed. He’s in jail because he was protesting for your rights.

At the time I began writing this, on the Goyfundme link he has raised $8,806.81 from 128 different people. That’s an average of $68.80 per donor. The initial goal was $25,000. He’s over 1/3 of the way there. There’s a lot of fees involved in a court case, and he still has his other bills that he needs to pay. Lots of people have done great work for the movement or have donated money to others who have. For you guys, we couldn’t be more grateful. For people who haven’t donated anything yet, now is your chance. There will never be a more important time to do so.

Interesting things are brewing at the Ridley Report! In a recent video, Dave Ridley explains that he’s hired Free Keene blogger Garret Ean to target the NH state house in Concord with ambush interviews!

Here Garret takes on some awful prohibitionist as she leaves a hearing regarding reforming prostitution statutes in NH:

Ridley’s hiring of Garret marks a first, major expansion to the Ridley Report brand. I’m looking forward to seeing what the video activist duo does next!
