Praise from reviewers and the entertainment industry:

Miss Liberty’s Film and Documentary World reviewed the movie in 2015 and gave it a glowing four stars!

“this documentary is perfectly professional and you will enjoy meeting Derrick J. Freeman, the film’s charming and gutsy young star, who demonstrates unequivocally the ultimately brutal nature of law…and who sacrificed months of his young life in prison to bring that point to film. As I said, the film follows a heroic structure, and rightfully so.”

Brett Veinotte, creator and host of the School Sucks Podcast: (hear his interview with Derrick):

“This documentary… really had an effect on me, because it in an hour and a half changed my opinion and really got me behind what you were doing.”

Danny Ledonne, producer/director of “Playing Columbine” (read the full review):

“This compelling personal documentary follows a young man named Derrick J. on his “rampage” of “criminal behavior” – from dancing in a public park and handing out information on public school property to recording video in public buildings and riding a bike along a public street!”

Davi Barker, SilverUnderground.com (read the full review):

“I gotta tell you, it’s hard to watch this documentary and not to just fall in love with Derrick J. He’s so overwhelmingly kind, and considerate while simultaneously firm and uncompromising, even in the face of cruel and incomprehensible treatment from sociocrats who push him around.”

Michael W. Dean, director of “Guns and Weed: The Road to Freedom.“:

“This is an important sociological document. I believe that in 100 years, ‘Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree’ will be studied the way we currently study footage of the Civil Rights Movement. In a just world, ‘Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree’ would be required viewing in public schools. But ‘required viewing’ and ‘public schools’ would not exist in a just world. And The State would rather use a live kitten as a silencer on a government gun than show the kids anything as true as this film.”

Darryl W. Perry, editor of “FPP.CC“:

“I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree multiple times throughout the production process, and the movie is just as good every time I watch it. The director’s cut DVD contains hours of extra footage from all of Derrick’s arrests, two commentary tracks, a Q&A from the premiere of the film and much more.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll be outraged at the people who made a “criminal” out of one of the most peaceful people you would ever meet.” (read the full review)

“Valor”, admin of “Just Anarchist Things“:

“one of the best movies you could ever watch”

Seth Cohn, NH State Representative and Free State Project participant”:

“Two thumbs up. Must see. Must share.”

Mr. Tacpans, the Far-Out, Lithium-Dosed Undiscovered YouTube Sensation:

“The whole truth on video, nothing but the truth”


  1. Very well-done documentary. Professional quality. Great story, even if it is quite sad, pointing out the failures of the state.

  2. I’ve watched it twice, and had it running in the background with just sound audible 2 other times. What an excellent piece of work this was. It infuriated me as much as it made me laugh. It clearly illustrates how un-free we actually are, even as peaceful people. There’s a serious illness present in polite society. It’s called government.

  3. Good video. An hour and a half of my life well spent. Share this via your social networks to get the word about this out. The more people see activism like this, and see the reality about the government that is sworn to protect our rights, and is failing to do so, and in quite a few cases doing the exact opposite. The more they want to go out and do something about it, and the more likely they are to do so.

  4. This is the most inspiring documentary I’ve seen in a long time. People like Derrick and Ian have been a large influence in my recent decision to move to the shire. I don’t have high expectations as far as the NH government–or any government–is concerned, but I look forward to living with other people who share my vision of a society where violent aggression is not acceptable.

  5. I love what you are doing Derrick. Excellent job on the video. It goes to prove that authorities are derelict in their day to day duties of protecting and serving the people (us). You pulled together some of the greatest proof that people in government only serve themselves and the people who placed them in their positions. Hope to see you in Philadelphia more often & best wishes to you in the future.

  6. You did an absolutely amazing job with this video Derrick! Very professional and a must see for anyone learning about the Free State Project or what Liberty is about. Also, thanks to Ian Freeman of Free Talk Live and the others who helped the creation of this video. The network of activists in NH seems to be simply phenomenal.

  7. Im a huge fan of what you’re doing. keep up the good work, along with everyone else who worked on this. NH seems to be the breeding ground for liberty. Cant help but be inspired. Please spread your work beyond New Hampshire. The whole country needs to see this.

  8. This is why I don’t own a gun. I felt like using one many times while I watched Derrick ‘s rights get violated. Proof positive: we’re all free till the cops show up.

  9. I want to give Derrick a hug.

  10. The movie needs to connect to more things outside of the small community he was a part of. I realize it is a case study but if there was an effort to show similar situations in other places it would make the message much more powerful.

  11. Fantastic documentary on Derrick’s journey in his quest to free himself and others from the tyranny of the people calling themselves the state. May this video be an inspiration to all who seek peace and individual liberty. Keene truly is the epicenter of liberty as Rockwell says.

  12. Derrick: You are a very bright and talented
    young man. BUT unless you are ready to take on a real tax supported
    venue like a Marine base or the FBI building in DC, direct your talents
    to more rewarding endeavors. Harassing small town local cops and court
    clerks? An older lady crossing guard??? Really?!!


    August 14, 2012

    • He wasn’t harassing the crossing guard, he was recording her to make some B-roll.

  14. This was a pretty good movie. Entertaining, at your expense, and informative. I’ll just say don’t regret going “straight” for a while to avoid a few years in jail. You at least did something. Good luck.

  15. Great Film!

  16. Banned from the courthouse and liquor stores and serves time in a cage.
    Sounds like a dangerous man, right? I mean…how awful of a person do you have to be to get banned from a courthouse?
    Not one of the “crimes” committed by Derrick J. Freeman resulted in damage to any individual or their property. They were just violations of words on paper….words that violate liberty.
    No victim…no crime.

  17. This movie is terrible and made absolutely no good arguments for change. The only thing that happened is an ass hole provoking cops into things they probably don’t even want to do until he opens his smug mouth. He is intentionally wasting the time and money of the police force trying to make illegitimate points about “justice”. Personally, I’d feel victimized by this guy causing a commotion in my environment and I’d call the cops on him.

    • police have NO money you twit.
      everything the police/government has was stolen from someone else.
      you are an embarrassment to the human race.
      get lost

    • You my friend have no clue what you are speaking about. Your comment is definitely just your opinion and not the real facts that you witnessed when you wAtched the film. People who think that he deserves what he got because he was trying to inform ” we the people” really need to wake up from that trance you are in. You must be a fan of authority. SMH.

  18. As an individual who has been arrested 4 times for victimless crimes such as possession of cannabis and “hindering own prosecution” at a young age of only 22, I think you are doing a great job. You are carrying a burden many of us only wish we could. Keep clogging the cogs, and enlightening those in the cave and so will I. I heard a great quote by Krishnamurti the other day, “It is no sign of health to be well adjusted to an inherently sick society”, you my friend seem very healthy.

  19. also i heard u the other day on school sucks, and u were great!

  20. This guy is like the Caiden Cowger of libertarianism. Hilarious, stupid, and 16 years old.


    July 31, 2014

  21. Anyone who would inflict violence upon a harmless peace puppy like Derek is obviously a sadistic thug.

  22. On Amazon.com the movie is unwatchable due to multiple voices going on at the same time.
