Breaking: FBI Raid Free Talk Live Studios, Steal Computers


The Free Talk Live studio and home of Ian Freeman were ransacked this morning by men who left carrying their plunder: computers and other electronics. These uninvited strangers had not engaged in a consensual interaction — say by compensating Ian Freeman, the owner of the gear — but stole it.

So brazen (hubristic?) were these criminals that they acted in broad daylight and displayed no visible sign of shame when questioned by a concerned friend of Freeman. At this time the identities of those responsible is unknown, but their gang affiliation includes the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the New Hampshire State Police, and the Keene Police Department.

Just why did these thieves target Freeman? While that question has been guessed at elsewhere online, this author has yet to hear an answer by someone on the scene. When that changes this post will be updated.

What is known that Freeman was not kidnapped and that his audio equipment remains. Also, that gang members of the same criminal outfits involved today have in the past sought to target Freemanbecause the ideas he espouses (namely, not to blindly obey those who claim arbitrary authority) threatens their racket.

Stay tuned to for updates.

UPDATE: Mark Edge, co-host of Free Talk Live, stated that “Free Talk Live should be on the air tonight.” The show is live from 7-10p EST at LRN.FM.ftl
