On April 9th, 2018, Ademo Freeman went on Facebook Live to say his final thoughts regarding his case, judges, politicians, and marijuana.
For those that do not know who Ademo is, he helped co-found CopBlock.org along with Pete Eyre. They started the page 8 years ago after they were arrested for videotaping officials at the Franklin County, Massachusetts jail. Since then Ademo has had many run ins with law enforcement ranging from activities like chalking sidewalks, recording police stops, to speaking out against check points. Ademo has seen his share of burnout and has suffered greatly in his quest to hold police accountable.
At the moment, Ademo has an open case for marijuana against him in Ohio. According to the Facebook Live video he posted he is planning on going to court tomorrow and has agreed to plead guilty. He goes on to say that it is expected that he will be given a 9 month sentence with a month and half served. In the video he breaks down his reasoning for everything stating that Ohio has dragged its feet in making it legal to smoke and that he did not get his marijuana from a black market dealer but grew it himself for self use and was thinking about traveling to a state that has not dragged its feet in creating the law.
We at America’s Police Problem are sadden to see that this is how the case has played out but fully understand the reasoning as it takes a lot of time, energy, and money to prove your case. The statistics even show it. According to The Department of Justice 90%-95% of cases end in plea deals.
We will update the article once we have an address to where you can send letters and money to him once it is known. We hope you will help us help him have a great stay while he is there.
