#FreeRebelPundit – arrested while filming leftist riot DePaul U. appearance (Audio added)

Black Lives Matters shut down Milo, police shut down journalist.

Breitbart author/media personality Milo appeared at DePaul University tonight, and was met with a stage takeover and threats of violence.

Breitbart News has the details:

Milo Yiannopoulos’ event at DePaul University had to be cut short Tuesday night after protesters stormed the stage, blew whistles, grabbed the microphone out of the interviewer’s hand, and threatened to punch Yiannopoulos in the face.

Our friend Rebel Pundit (aka Jeremy Segal), who is the husband of Legal Insurrection author Anne Sorock, was outside filming protesters.

Jeremy, a close confidant of Andrew Breitbart (featured image), has filmed many viral videos.

We have featured Jeremy’s videos many times, including his recent videos (along with Andrew Marcus) of anti-Trump protesters and Bill Ayers in Chicago.

(Language Warning)

Jeremy was arrested by police for filming, and as of this writing, has spent almost 4 hours in jail. Anne received his “one phone call” from jail; he didn’t know what the charge would be. [Update: A little after 3 a.m. Eastern, Rebel Pundit was released. More details to follow.]

We will update when we have more details, and video.

UPDATE: Jeremy appeared on The Michael Koolidge show this morning and explains in detail what happened, including how had prior approval and was credentialed for the event; and how a university administrator singled him out. Here is the audio — listen to the end when Jeremy also explains what is happening on campuses.

Prof. Bill, let us know if there’s a fund for needed $$$, please.

This has been a tactic used by Chicago PD against protesters for at least 10 years. Arrest and hold for several hours before dropping charges and releasing.

    Chicago P.D. got caught with “hidden” buildings where people being “held” were incommunicado from their lawyers and the CPD claimed to have “misplaced” the not-arrested-person.
    parts of the stories included some being handcuffed naked to benches in frigid temps, but not yet questioned (but not softening up or intimidating, per Cook County lawyers)

      Crawford in reply to jhn1. | May 25, 2016 at 12:14 am

      While the police screwed up in this case, I have to take issue with this. There was no “hidden” building or secret facilities. The supposed “secret site” is actually the site of the recovered property office — where Chicagoans can go to recover items stolen from them.

      The story was “reported” by the Guardian, and sourced entirely from two scumbags and their lawyers. It was propaganda, intended to put pressure on Chicago to release the scumbags.

      Chicago has been hit with one of the most focused and long-running efforts to destroy the rule of law in history. They’re seeing the “benefits” of that now. Search around for how the “Innocence Project” framed truly innocent people, suborned perjury, and got murderers released.

        I’m sure a lot of it is made up, but the Police have admitted that they take people there and interrogate them. They also admit that this takes place before processing them in (which is done somewhere else), which means that there is a gap between when someone is arrested and when they show up in the public system.

        It is at the very least more than just a place for recovered property as the police have admitted.

The BLM activists appear to be auditioning for Hitler Youth, or perhaps the Red Guard. Either way, they’re budding little fascists.

One little Kent State type thing and this all goes away.

Sue these so-called police. Odds are good that they don’t get qualified immunity, because they had no good-faith belief that they had the right to arrest him, so go after them personally and take their houses and pensions.

    Crawford in reply to Milhouse. | May 25, 2016 at 12:15 am

    No, go after the senior officers who set the policy behind these arrests. CPD has orders to go light on BLM thugs — find out who issued that order, and sue them into poverty.

      Go after both the brass and the lower level cops. The lower level cops get hit less hard if they cooperate in moving up the chain. This is a common police practice and should be turned back on them when they join the brown shirts and criminals.

        JackRussellTerrierist in reply to TX-rifraph. | May 25, 2016 at 3:31 pm

        No, it doesn’t work that way with the city administration of Chicago. $hit rolls downhill only. The brass will not be harmed; the street cops will. It only happens to the brass when it comes from the top down, not from the bottom up. Just like the Daley machines, Rahm decides who’s going to take the hit, such as we just saw with Garry McCarthy. The public gets their optics and the happy scapegoat gets a new gig elsewhere with big bucks for taking the hit. That city is operated exactly the way the mob has always operated.

      Exactly. Read “Second City Cop” blog if you want insight as to what rank and file Chicago cops think and feel. By and large it’s the city officials and the higher up muckety mucks who are responsible for the crap that goes on ~

        JackRussellTerrierist in reply to nordic_prince. | May 25, 2016 at 3:42 pm

        The guys who run that site are definitely hip to everything that happens at the city, county and much of the state level. Those cops on there are sharp as razors. They feel the pulse of Chicago and environs like nobody else could. They are a HIGHLY observant group of individuals. I don’t know if it’s just one cop doing the writing or several, but they have got eyes and ears everywhere.

      Milhouse in reply to Crawford. | May 25, 2016 at 8:13 pm

      I don’t really care who gave the order. It’s the police who implemented it who broke the law. It’s their duty to refuse illegal orders, and if they don’t then they are common criminals who deserve to be both sued and prosecuted.

    stevewhitemd in reply to Milhouse. | May 25, 2016 at 8:31 am

    Sure, sue them. Brilliant. In Cook County, that lawsuit will come to trial (assuming the judge doesn’t toss it for 277 different procedural flaws) sometime in 2023.

    What are you going to do in the meantime?’

    Threatening lawsuits is a time-honored internet hack dodge. It’s what people toss out there when they have nothing else to say.

    Tell us, Milhouse, what exactly are you going to DO about this other than bray about filing a lawsuit?

      Valerie in reply to stevewhitemd. | May 25, 2016 at 9:24 am

      Ummm, this is a site run by a lawyer and frequented by lawyers. Further, this story discloses a legitimate cause of action for false imprisonment. In the US, false imprisonment is taken seriously, and therefore results in significant awards of damages.

      Milhouse in reply to stevewhitemd. | May 25, 2016 at 8:15 pm

      Um, what exactly do you except me to do about it? What are you doing? What can anyone do? The law is the only way this can ever be stopped. There is nothing else that can be done, by anyone.

    JackRussellTerrierist in reply to Milhouse. | May 25, 2016 at 3:46 pm

    That’s just evil. The rank-and-file cops in that city are already under siege. Geez, walk a mile in their shoes and get back to us.


      Cops who break the law are criminals, no better than the ones they battle. They have a clear duty to refuse illegal orders, and if they don’t then they deserve the full fury of the law.

At least he managed to get his footage of the mini-riot away from the police when he was arrested (if I’m reading the above correctly). Otherwise, it could have been months or even years before his camera equipment would be returned to him. Blank, of course, if not broken.

    stevewhitemd in reply to georgfelis. | May 25, 2016 at 8:33 am

    In this day, I’d imagine a videographer filming these sorts of events would be streaming directly to a password protected cloud account. So your equipment might disappear or be broken by the Chicago police but your footage should be okay.

I can’t fathom why the university administration let this disgraceful abuse continue. The venue was booked and extra security was demanded and PAID by the students that peacefully assembled at this institution. This is a shameful abrogation of duty by the administration and the University President should resign since this person is totally lacking in responsibility

    JohnC in reply to wukong. | May 25, 2016 at 9:03 am

    1. The administration is afraid of them.
    2. The administration agrees with them.

    The percentage of each changes from day to day but there you have it.

The best part was Milo led his audience on a trip to the University President’s office to protest the lack of response from security.

and yet,, not

To silence the animals

the cops are instructed to bully those who

might be “insulting” those animals

socialismisevil | May 25, 2016 at 1:03 pm


its not going to get any better until

the anti American crowd is held

accountable for their actions

    JackRussellTerrierist in reply to socialismisevil. | May 25, 2016 at 3:54 pm

    Held accountable/ By whom? The Civil Rights Commission? Uh, no. Hire a high-priced lawyer and sue, go to court until the defendant with unlimited financing from Soros and other leftist entities runs you out of money?

    Perhaps something a bit more draconian and … uh … physical might be a swifter and longer lasting solution.

The second lead protester at last night’s event at DePaul University has been identified as Kayla Johnson, the daughter of Juanita Johnson, who serves as the Chicago Police Department’s Director of Administration.

Well there you go
