A License to Harass

What happened to Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness?

(RedPillReports) For my first article with Red Pill Reports I wasn’t sure of the subject. There is no shortage of things to discuss. Our world is speeding up. Shocking, puzzling, and maddening events are occurring with greater frequency and the more they occur the less the majority of people seem to care. The collective will to resist erosion to our Nations foundation, the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, has been stretched near the breaking point. But within these disheartening trends there also seems to be a rising tide of freedom reborn in a spirited few. Perhaps the greatest lesson of the American Revolution is that a minority of people willing to risk everything for Liberty are undefeatable.   Conversely, is there anything more immoral than the very people sworn to protect our Liberty using their supposed authority to pollute America with the stench of tyranny? In honor of our Founder’s sacrifice I bring attention to the following unrelated but similar events for your consideration:


A license to Harrass - Andrew Kellene, Subway Musician Arrested

Andrew Kellene, Subway Musician

Earlier this month an American, Andrew Kellene, disappeared from the city streets, down flights of stairs, into the melting pot known as the New York City Subway. He carried his guitar strapped to his back and among the sea of people found an out of the way piece of concrete and began strumming. His act of free will and pursuit of happiness brought the attention of the police. As he was singing Neil Young’s “Ohio”, (the protest song about the police brutality at Kent State in the ‘60’s), the police began to harass Andrew.

The police barked orders telling the man to stop. Andrew refused. The policeman then lied telling him it was against the law for him to be playing there.Andrew quoted from subway statutes proving his point. The policeman didn’t care and slammed Andrew and his guitar against the wall. Luckily for us the whole thing was recorded by an onlooker. (Below is a link to the video and whole story) The city of New York quickly released Andrew as attention came to the incident. They at least showed a little shame when confronted with public response to the viral video.

A license to Harrass - Robin Hood of Keene, Paying Parking Meters Saving Motorists

Robin Hood of Keene

In Keene, New Hampshire a group of activists known as “Robin Hooders” have taken it upon themselves to deliver the People from the burdensome policy of parking tickets. Whenever a Robin Hooder sees a car parked on city streets with an expired parking meter they put money in the meter. And if there is already a ticket on the car they put information on the windshield to fight the unconstitutional ticket in court. One of the group’s members, and local radio host, Ian Freeman estimates the group has saved around 8,000 tickets in 2013 alone. Neighbors helping neighbors.

So how did the town of Keene respond? Did they applaud the good deeds of the Robin Hooders? NO. Did they reduce the price of steep parking tickets? NO. Did they create a fund Robin Hooders could donate money to go towards the meters? NO. Not even close. The city of Keene sued the Robin Hood organizers.

Apparently the parking meter attendants said they “feared” the town do-gooders. Fortunately the lower court threw out the lawsuits, but the government is now using the money you gave them to push the case to an appeal in the New Hampshire Supreme Court. Pulling fees from the visitors of Keene is pretty darn important. Money is more significant to them than People. And they will try to intimidate and harass Americans who come between them and more revenue.How can anyone claim the government of Keene is working for them in this matter? (a link to the complete story below) Like getting between a dog and a bone the People of Keene are realizing what it means to interfere with revenue generation. The interest of the People being in complete conflict with the best interest of the government and those it employs.

Activists Face Supreme Court Ruling Paying Parking Meters Saving Motorists


If it is not obvious to you by now it should be…your government, and those who work in them, do not always have your best interest at heart. They generally do not care about your well-being and most certainly do not care anything at all about the Constitution our founders established with the Mercy of our Creator.   If you don’t agree with what I just wrote then you really have not been paying attention. These two stories have become the norm. I haven’t even mentioned the family dogs being shot all over the country by over-eager police. Did you know Americans are 8 times more likely to be killed by a policeman than a terrorist.

It is pretty obvious police care about pleasing their government bosses and the government bosses care about generating money for the “officials” to spend. If that means writing a few tickets and arresting People for victimless crimes then so be it. The Constitution be damned. The government employees which we have vested our money and trust in have betrayed us and now serve a counterfeit shell of our Republic and their actions often spit in the face of the People of this Country. It also contradicts the moral and civil law of the United States.

The most important political paragraph in millennia and most certainly the most important paragraph in American history is the 2nd paragraph of the Declaration of Independence.   Without question it lays out the true political hierarchy of our nation and relationship of the People to the government.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness…”

The Declared Law in America is simply that the Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness endowed to us by our Creator is the greatest political expediency in the world and cannot be controlled or dictated to us by government in any manner…the only restriction being the equal rights of our fellow man.Freedom is a balancing act to keep public servants always in their place.

"When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny,” Thomas Jefferson

The fulfillment of Jefferson’s revolutionary and Heavenly inspired paragraph is the Bill of Rights. Praise be to the Creator it is solemnized Law. Look around, how many of these do you see ignored and/or violated by our government every day? What other evidence do you need? The police are there to protect the interests of the People in the Bill of Rights, not generate revenue…at least their solemn Oath declares it to be so.

What the public servants in the previous stories have done is disgusting. They are a menace to society and have violated their Oaths to support the Constitution and Bill of Rights. It is lawlessness. Their actions show their motives making them little more than burdensome parasites. And to think, we pay their salary to run around and harass us. If these were isolated incidents I wouldn’t even mention them, but they are not. If any of us would have slammed the guitar playing American in the subway and took him away we would have been put in jail for kidnapping. The police just go on to the next victim waiting every two weeks to collect the check we pay for.

If we are to be free-- the men and women who are entrusted with protecting our Law (the Constitution), must know what it is first. Don’t you think? History shows once police act like this towards the People a slippery and steep slope of tyranny follows. When my dog growls at me I throw it out in the yard. I don’t put up with them acting like that and we shouldn’t put up with it from our public servants.God certainly knows we are the fools responsible for our own demise if we let these types of actions continue.
