Free Talk Live Radio Host Jailed Over A Couch!

by James Cox

Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Ian Freeman will spend 100 days in jail because he questioned the legitimacy of a system which would penalize him for having a couch in his yard and conduct his trial in secret.

Keene resident Nick Ryder wrote on the Free Keene blog that the courtroom at Freeman’s trial Friday afternoon at Keene District Court in Keene, N.H., was stacked with police “to try and outnumber the liberty activists.”


The video is actual footage of Ian Freemans arrest.

Ian Freeman of Keene, NH rents a house to a tenant, who has a musty old couch on the property.

The city planner complained and a Keene City Code Enforcer ticketed Ian. Ian was willing to remove the couch, he only asked to face his accuser. Instead, a trial date was scheduled.

When Ian failed to sit down fast enough at “trial”, the “judge” sentenced him to 30 days for contempt of court, moved him to a back room, sentenced him for another 60 days and, finally, 3 days for refusing to pay the couch-related fine.

Ian is currently incarcerated, serving a 93 day sentence – for refusing to bully his tenant into removing the couch and for sitting down too slowly. Is that just punishment?

    I thought NH was a libertarian state. Looks like they’re being taken over by influences from the outside.

    This is outrageous.
    Please post the name, address and phone number of this judge so he may receive a little bit of well deserved payback! ;)
    These people need to be taught the lesson that they can’t just enforce their will on people without fear of retribution.
    This judge needs a lesson in “justice”.

    Funny how when “YOUR HONOR”, comes into a courtroom, the bailiff says, “All Rise”, which is out of respect, or some stupid intimidation act; whatever….but to be arrested for not sitting down in time, after rising out of respect…..that’s over the top.

    If anything, you were “Still Standing….paying some real attention and respect.” Peace. Hopefully its done for you.
