In the sudden glare of negative media attention, the folks at CopBlock are backpedaling rather furiously:
We at Cop Block would like to address the article written and shared to Cop Block’s Facebook page by author, Christopher Cantwell, entitled as it was reasonably and understandably concerning to many of you and many of us.
Suddenly Chris Cantwell's violent rhetoric is a problem, so now he's a "former" author.
Some of the folks behind CopBlock have signed on to say that they don't support cop killing, they are believers in the non-aggression principle, and so on. One of the signers is Pete Eyre, who is a CopBlock founder.
Adam Mueller, aka Ademo Freeman is NOT one of the signers. In fact, he tweeted this out:
@BitcoinBelle @voteforcantwell is no longer an admin of the FB page. Gotta be PC, ya know. Otherwise slaves won't like @CopBlock

Cantwell was a CopBlock administrator even after he was ousted by the Free State Project for violent rhetoric. This sudden ouster is all about keeping the "slaves" (all you nice liberals who post CopBlock memes) from being upset about the violence these folks espouse.
