On Sunday at least 250-300 people showed up in Canton for a protest at the police station, which was peaceful as usual. The protesters were not just there for Karen Read this time, they were to protest on behalf of the Canton 9 and Turtleboy, who have been targeted by the Canton Police Department and had the witness intimidation statute weaponized against them in order to silence their First Amendment rights.

This was the headline from the Patriot Ledger:

“Supporters of woman accused of killing Braintree native protest outside police station.”

This is the best description of the event the mainstream media could come up with. They make it sound like we were all there to support some murderer who killed some random guy in Braintree. Except we were there specifically to protest the suppression of First Amendment rights in that town. At no point in their four paragraph story do they mention that.

Imagine if we had to rely on useless institutions like this for our news? It’s scary to think about what the public wouldn’t know about. Luckily the Internet allows anyone who’s willing to put the effort in to find out more details and report the truth. The Young Jurks were at the protest and documented the whole thing.

Our presence in Canton was a big F you to the people who think they can silence us. We stood directly across the street from Tim Albert’s house with the filled in pool, and I made sure to have my measuring tape with me to make sure that the McAlberts stayed at least 100 feet away from me at all times. I know they get really scared and sad when I get too close to them, so I wanted to respect their safe space.

But it’s really humbling to see all these fine people who up to support Karen Read, myself, and the Canton 9. It’s so encouraging to see the crowds at these events because it’s a reminder that our following isn’t just online, and turtle riders aren’t going to back down in the face of suppression. It was great meeting so many of you, especially all the kids attending their first protest, and I hope to see more of you on January 5 at Karen Read’s next court hearing in Dedham. Thank you to Paul Christoforo, Dana Leonard, and Tracey Murray for organizing this uplifting event.


Hello Turtle Riders. As you know if you follow Turtleboy we are constantly getting censored and banned by Facebook for what are clearly not violations of their terms of service.

  1. Everything about this movement is awesome. It’s people coming together to protest and defend an innocent woman. It doesn’t matter about personal politics either, it’s fighting for what is right vs wrong.

    One of my favorite photos of Sunday’s protest is of an older woman walking with a walker and a sign in her basket in support of the Canton 9. It’s not on this post but it is on the Justice FB Group. It’s a powerful photo and it just shows how passionate people are in fighting against all this injustice.

    Shame on Canton Police for not coming out and trying to talk to the crowd. Throughout all of this we have seen over and over a lack of leadership from the Canton PD and that’s really shameful. Sunday was an opportunity for CPD to engage with their residents and try to work together. I do feel hopeful that the people of Canton will soon have new leaders in place and when that happens the town can start healing and moving in the right direction.

    Kudos to all and keep the faith because things are unraveling for those involved in this sham case. Justice is on the horizon.

  2. This is awesome. Should have stopped in for some beverages at the Waterfall and bought some Christmas cocktails!

    I listened to Brandi’s podcast and saw on Twitter that she is having trouble finishing part 6. I just think it’s hard for her not being from here to put into words why there are so many people against the Alberts and McCabes, besides morals, justice and murder.

    They are the EPITOME of the type of Massholes people hate nationally. They’re white trash entitled know it alls who think they’re born into privilege in their town, but when they set foot outside it, they’re just a bunch of dumb inbreds. Yet they think they have You can find the same people in Springfield, South Boston, Leominster, etc.

    1. Speaking of inbreds, I’d take the Whittaker family (YouTube it) as my neighbors over these POS’s ANY DAY. Not kidding.

  3. I’m starting to think we live in the Twilight Zone… or as Rod Serling would say another dimension… as a matter of fact I expect to see him standing off to the side ripping butts

    1. It really does feel like the twilight zone… But it does feel like end is in sight… and boy won’t that be fun to see some in handcuffs.

  4. Just like to give a big thumbs up to the kid with the VIRGINITY ROCKS sweatshirt. He’s obviously very young, too young to not be but it’s an amazing message to pass on. Save yourself, get married, have lots of kids and help us return to our past ways of giving a shit about ourselves!

    (TLDR: Don’t be a McAlbert)

    Carry on!

    1. That’s my son! I will pass it along as he now thinks he’s famous. And that’s fine with me if it’s for this protest!

  5. “Spend time on social media and the MAGA crowd is sure that the Supreme Court will knock these cases down. After all, this is still America. The courts removing parties and candidates is something that happens in the third world or Russia. Like the man who still thinks things can be patched up with his wife, these people are not ready to contemplate the reality of the situation.” – zman.com

    More people need to ask the honest question: How come protests are allowed to take place outside of people’s homes when it involves people unlike Turtleboy? Why is he facing multiple felony counts when others doing similar things have all but been tacitly endorsed by the establishment? Why is this the case?
