My name is Matt Bieber, and Im a divinity
school student with a keen interest in politics. At a Romney Event Yesterday, I
Was Removed and Arrested. I Still Don't Know Why.
Id been in New Hampshire for the past
several days to follow the campaign and see some of the candidates in-person.
Yesterday morning, I was chatting up a Romney campaign staffer before an event
at the Gilchrist Manufacturing Company in Hudson, NH, when a police officer
approached. Sir, we have to ask you to leave the premises.
Sir, is this
about my backpack? Id be happy to show you theres nothing dangerous in
No, sir well explain it to you
I gathered my things and walked past a group of
citizens and press, humiliated and confused.
Outside, the officer said,
Sir, the campaign has identified you as someone who was at a protest at
Romneys office in Manchester.
Now I was really confused. Protest? I
didnt even know there had been protests at Romneys headquarters, and if there
had been, I certainly hadnt been at them. (Later, after I got out of jail, I
looked on the web; I still havent found any news stories about protests at
Romneys offices here, though Occupy protesters have attended several of his
I explained to the officer his name was Lamarche, and his
partners was Ducie that there must have been some misunderstanding. Could I
speak to someone from the campaign to clear this up? No. Id have to leave
I asked about his authority to remove me. Were working for
the Romney campaign, he said. I asked if he was on-duty; he said he was. My
confusion deepened. So was he working for the town of Hudson today, or for the
campaign? Both. (Later, I think I got it straight: the campaign hired the
police for the day, sort of like a private security detail.)
about Romneys campaign staff inside. They had mistaken me for someone else, and
that was enough I was out. They had imagined trouble and whisked it away, out
of sight. And the police my police were being paid to do their
I asked again to speak to someone from the campaign or the
company who owned the plant. The officer refused; the company had delegated
authority to the campaign, and the campaign had authorized the police to remove
anyone the campaign didnt want present. But wouldnt it be simple for me to
just talk to someone and explain the mistake? Too many people around, the cop
said. Apparently it would be too big a bother. I either had to leave or face
charges for criminal trespass.
My reason-seeking brain couldnt take in
what was happening. I had come here to be a part of the primary process, to see
it first-hand and to write about it. I came because I was curious, and on my own
nickel. I wasnt part of any protest group or in anyones employ. Couldnt we
just have a reasonable conversation and figure this out?
I asked another
question or two, and the cop had had enough: Youre under arrest. He took my
things, handcuffed me behind my back, searched me, and tucked me into a nearby
cruiser. A few minutes later, an officer removed me from the cruiser and had me
lean up against another police car and spread my legs for a second search. Two
or three TV crews had their cameras trained on us; I felt ashamed in a wholly
unfamiliar way. I wanted to look directly at the cameras and explain what had
happened, but I feared the police officers reaction.
I was tucked into
the second cruiser and driven away. The camera crews continued filming. A
protester oh, did I mention that there was an actual protest there? yelled,
Free the prisoner.
At the police station, I was put in a cage and asked
to remove my shoes, belt, and sweatshirt. An officer named Manni and another
officer processed my paperwork. As they did so, they told me not to go back to
that area when I was released. I indicated that I understood I wasnt
permitted to be on the companys land or facilities, but surely I could go back
to the street if I so chose its public property, after all. Dont go back to
that area, they said. If you go back, you might cause a disturbance or a riot,
and you could be arrested for disorderly conduct.
I tried to keep calm
and ask even-keeled questions. Were they telling me I wasnt even permitted in
the street near the facility? And if so, on what grounds? (I wondered, Is the
Romney campaign just permitted to cordon off a whole neighborhood?)
then the following exchange took place. I began to ask, If I express my First
And Officer Manni interjected, Youll probably be

clear to me that the two officers had no interest in discussing what the law
actually said, or what my rights actually entailed. I was paperwork, and they
wanted to get it over with. That didn't sit well with me, so I kept asking
questions. One of the officers then opened up the New Hampshire legal code and
read me the definition of disorderly conduct. He read the words dully, as if
they were just syllables, with no interest at all in what they meant.
asked the officer if he could help me connect what hed just read with my
situation and understand why it would be a problem to return to the street
outside the event. He told me that I might return and say things that arent
what others think. It was incredible he actually paused before he said those
words, as if searching for something politically correct to say. I dont think
he realized that the words he found had so little to do with the letter and
spirit of our laws and Constitution.
Nearly four hours after all of this
began after time spent in an actual cell, and then even more time back in the
cage the bail bondsman arrived. He set up an arraignment date, drove me to an
ATM so I could extract the $40 bond, and dropped me off at my car. As we parted,
he repeated the officers advice from earlier: Dont hang around this area.
Apparently, even hours after the event had ended, the Romney campaign and the
local police were still present, nibbling away at my freedoms.
Woodrow Wilson also said:
"I have unwillingly ruined my
country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of
credit. Our system of credit is concentrated in the hands of a few
We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of
the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the world...no
longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and
vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups
of dominant men."
Woodrow Wilson described Edward Mandell
House as his "alter ego" (his other
House wrote "Philip Dru: Administrator", where he stated that he was working
for "socialism as dreamed of by Karl Marx."

An election is not a horse race, where you can
by predicting the winner.
An election is your chance to support
what you really want.
The lessor of two evils, is still evil.
All that is necessary for evil to triumph,
is for good people to do nothing.
When good people support evil,
then evil triumphs much more quickly.
You do not become a winner,
because you supported the winner.

Support what you really believe.
Do not support what you disagree with;

Voting for evil is throwing your vote
Politicians take polls, and; at election time,
they always say, that they will do,
what the people want them to do.
The people keep telling the politicians the same
Every poll and word that the people speak
"We want lower taxes and less government."
"We want the government off of our backs,
and out of our pocket books."
Most people understand that
"lower taxes and less government",
must both come together.
We know that the Politicians are hearing what we

back to us...
AT ELECTION TIME.
Power goes back and forth
but government just keeps getting larger and more
and more oppressive.
It is better to vote for what you want and not get
than it is to vote for what you don't want and get it.
Let's send them a message.
