It was one month ago when DrDavid Berman removed the feedback mechanisms from his popular youtube video Free Keene Knuckleheads Confronted. Some time recently, the video itself became privatized, making it inaccessible for viewing to the general public. You can see multiple shots taken from Dr. Dave’s perspective in the AKPF episode Dr. David Joins Aqua Keene Parking Force, including audio ripped from the original. Since the video’s debut, Robin Hood of Keene and his Merry Men (of which this author is an active participant) have received a number of apologies and expressions of support from individuals identifying as Christian who believed that the doctor’s actions in the video did not represent their faith well.
While Dr. Dave’s approach was unnecessarily confrontational, I do appreciate that he took the initiative to express himself on video for public dissemination. There are many who never express themselves. Robin Hood and the Merry Men welcome third party videographers to record our actions, and we encourage them to disseminate as much of their footage to the public as possible. The original video description of the Knuckleheads video read:
I’m Confronting these idiots because they are constantly following meter maids around with cameras trying to intimidate them and make their work life miserable. They are acting like little babies because I am calling them names like Jerks and knuckleheads. Aww…did I hurt your feelings? They and those who defend them are just that.
