Michigan Judge Finds Attorney In Contempt For Live Streaming Trial

 This Michigan Judge is denying the public’s “Right to Know” and punishing people who are trying to educate the public by Live Streaming the Court Case!

The First Amendment with its Freedom of Speech clause is under attack again this time in Michigan.

What is the Judge trying to Hide?

Why is he so angry that the trial is being Live Streamed?

I think that it is disturbing that the judge is trying to silence freedom of speech and the right of the public to be able to see what is occurring in court.

In this day and age of the internet and streaming live events, ALL Courts that are open to the general public should automatically be live streamed on the internet with the video available for the public to see at any time via youtube facebook and any other video service that is open to the public.

What are your thoughts about this case?

The report below comes from Wayne Dupree’s Vimeo feed, if you are on Vimeo you should follow him there as well as his youtube channel. Show him some love and “Heart” the video.

Support Citizen Journalists so that more Citizen Reporters will Step Up and Report what is happening in their locations around the country.

Michigan Judge Finds Attorney In Contempt For Live Streaming Trial On Facebook! from Wayne Dupree on Vimeo.

Two television news cameras were live streaming the ridiculous trial; of a man cited for warming up his car in the driveway of his Michigan home during subfreezing temperatures, when the judge turned to the defense and asked if they were live streaming.

Attorney Nicholas Somberg acknowledged that his associate sitting behind him was live streaming, but had only done so after asking the local media if it was permissible. But Roseville District Judge Marco Santia was infuriated that Somberg did not fill out a permission slip approved by him and ruled him in contempt of court.

#TBT a year later – The Working Class Tax

Well how quickly time flies – it’s a year later and a #TBT and #TyrannyThursdayAlert is in order… Talking Taxes

Once again the elected officials are talking about raising taxes; which hurts our Businesses both big and small and the Working Class Families are the ones who are hurt the worst.

Are you tired of the out of touch elected officials wasting our families money on special interests and crazy projects?

Then maybe it’s time to gather together at the town halls and at the capitol and tell them #NoNewCTTaxes !

Taxed

Enough

Already

No New CT Taxes!

 

Cross posted item from another Tillett4CT project

Look around you when you are driving home tonight and; 

Specifically look around to see …
Just how many empty storefronts, closed businesses and; restaurants there are?
Those are people Not Working, people that aren’t working don’t have as much money to spend buying other things & going out to eat or taking their families on vacations.

How many Empty Homes & For Sale Signs are on the streets as you drive during your day? 
Those are families that are no longer part of the stable taxpaying CT Economy, no longer contributing to other families working by using Roofers, Plumbers, Carpenters or buying big ticket items for their homes.

Start taking pictures and; post them to the https://facebook.com/TillettForCT page


Ask yourself …
Do we need something else that will close more businesses and hurt more working class families?

or 

Do we need for our elected officials to stop attacking the small business owners and start cutting out the expensive projects that while are nice things to have but we just can not afford right now?


Is your job one of those that was killed off by the #DemocratsRaisingTaxesAgain ?

Will your job be next on the chopping block? 

Can you and your family afford to keep on paying these increasing taxes?

#YouHaveAChoice this November the Status Quo or a #FreshNewStart … 

Choose wisely #ElectionsHaveConsequences

SUSPECT ARRESTED IN FRONT STREET SHOOTOUT – Commentary

Another Hartford young man arrested for illegally possessing a gun after a shooting.

I have some questions and comments as a result of Kevin’s May 7th article. What I do love about We the People Hartford site is that regardless of what side of an issue Kevin does make you think about what is happening around us.

Unlike the “so called professional journalists”, he both listens to the public that are giving tips or their own commentary. Kevin also discusses his findings with those who are commenting.

That’s one thing that is great about Citizen Journalism, the majority of them are down to earth people and more than willing to talk to and with their readers.

Another great thing about Citizen Journalists is that many of them tend to have the breaking news that the “professionals” won’t bother to look into or cover for various reasons.

That being said I disagree with the title of the article in that a “Shoot Out” requires at least 2 people shooting, but there was only one person illegally armed and shooting at a defenseless car and an unarmed woman the way that Kevin’s article reads. So the title should have been “Suspect Arrested for Front Street Shooting”.

Thankfully the young woman who was the target of this young man’s anger was not another fatality for the crime stats of Hartford. I do wonder whose house was this gun found at? Was that person the Legal Owner of that gun or was that person also in possession of a gun illegally?

I am for people having the choice to exercise their right to self-defense and protecting their family from harm but it’s angry young men like this that create problems for LEGALLY Trained, Permitted & Armed people.

Why did he decide that it was ok to try to shoot (only 7 of 12 shots hit that huge target?) a car because he was angry with the driver?

What does that say about our society and community; where a person can grow up thinking that it is ok to escalate a verbal argument into threatening a life and destruction of property?

How much worse is it going to get with so many police officers retiring in Hartford? Will there be an increase in the gang-related shootings and crimes in our cities?

This young man was wrong in what he did; but was he carrying the illegal gun because he was unable to afford to get a gun legally? I do not know anything about this young man so I do not know;  would he have been able (prior to this incident) to attempt to get the training that is part of the requirements to obtain a pistol permit?

What can be done to make our cities safer for the citizens that live there? Our police and fire departments are understaffed with more about to retire. Will more citizens be arming themselves illegally because the powers that be have made the basic human right to self-defense out of reach for the poor, blacks and minorities in our state?

How is the pending Bankruptcy going to affect the police and firemen and public safety for the people in Hartford?

Those are just a few of the questions and thoughts that Kevin’s article and the public comments have sparked for me…

What are your thoughts and questions?

Full article and community commentary can be found on We the People Hartford news site Kevin Brookman Editor & Lead Investigative Reporter


Hartford Police officers were dispatched to 24 Front Street this morning on the report of shots fired.

Upon HPD’s arrival, officers located a 2010 Ford Fusion with multiple bullet holes in it parked at the entrance to the Front Street parking garage. The victim detailed to officers that she had been involved in an argument with here “friends” boyfriend. The boyfriend removed a firearm from his waistband and fired 12 rounds at her vehicle. He apparently needs to spend more time at the range,  since only 7 of the 12 rounds actually struck the vehicle.

Based upon the victims information , the suspect was identified and HPD contacted him. The suspect and his girlfriend agreed to return to the scene where HPD conducted a felony motor vehicle stop and the suspect was placed under arrest.

The suspect, identified as Austin Treadwell, 28, of 20 Front Street, Apt 318 was arrested and charged with numerous charges, including carrying a pistol without a permit, unlawful discharge of a firearm, Reckless endangerment 1st degree, Weapons in a Motor vehicle, Criminal Possession of a high capacity magazine, Criminal Mischief 1st Degree.

Treadwell had apparently disposed of the weapon, a 40 caliber pistol in East Hartford before returning to the scene. The weapon was recovered through the efforts of HPD.
