"Illegal" Interviews Could Send CopBlock Founder to Jail

New Hampshire authorities use wiretap laws to target activist over his reports on police conduct

|

The founder of CopBlock.org has been indicted on three felony wiretapping counts in connection to a video posted to the anti-law enforcement website about alleged excessive force in a school cafeteria. …

Public officials instructed the cell phone video be deleted, but it was instead sent to Mueller, who called Manchester police for comment and recorded interviews with on-duty officers, according to a press release. He then used the calls in his CopBlock.org report, which claimed excessive force by Murphy and went viral.
