The case of Nydia Tisdale, a Georgia citizen journalist, illuminates the power of the State to force behavior. But, while they may be able to force behavior, they cannot control information. Once the guilty verdict was announced it was posted on the Internet. Then the “blockchains” began. Me, and many others, copied the storied, added value to it, send it others for them to store on their servers. Now there are copies of the facts of this case that can be verified.
On Monday afternoon a Dawson County jury unanimously found self-described citizen journalist Nydia Tisdale guilty of a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of an officer for resisting arrest by former Capt. Tony Wooten of the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office.
Apparently in Georgia one can be found guilty of misdemeanor obstruction of a law enforcement officer simply because they want to.
It’s All About Information!
The great thing about this Case is, is we live in a 21st Century world, not a 1st Century world. This is now a pubic legal case. This is information. And, as much as they would like, they cannot stop information.
It’s About the “Blockchain.”
They may be able to physically stop a citizen journalist from recording reality, but once it is recorded it is distributed using a “Blockchain” through the world. This is called the Internet.
They may be able to stop a citizen journalist, but the Internet prevents them from stopping information.
Each of us can record this discussion and store it on our servers. This is a great example of a “Blockchain.”
