Freight Broker Live host Steve Oatley was caught on camera tonight condoning violence on his stream "You're Favorite Freight Broker: Live PD." He started out as he usually does saying that he does not condone violence, but then changed his tune after counter protesters arrived at a Black Lives Matter protest in Springfield, Oregon. Eventually he switched from Adam Costello's live stream to himself and said "I do not condone violence" while shaking his head up and down signaling yes with a cheesy grin on his face. He then repeated himself while shaking his head from side to side signaling no with the same cheesy grin. The message that most reasonable people would receive from that in the context in which it was made was that he condones violence as long as it is against Black Lives Matter and Antifa demonstrators.
To better demonstrate the context, you can see some footage from when counter-protesters supporting the police showed up right before Steve made his comments. In the minutes before the footage starts there was a bunch of yelling and shoving between the two that included one person putting hands on Costello's camera. Mr. Oatley has repeatedly made statements during his live streams encouraging police to attack protesters in Portland, Oregon and other parts of the country. This is the first time we have noticed him do that when the people using violence are counter-protesters and not police. The video should be embedded below unless he filed another frivolous copyright complaint against us.
This whole thing started with him censoring our comments on his stream even though he claims to welcome all views. We then did a background check on him and dug up an old mugshot that he did not know existed (pictured above). We posted the mugshot along with other information about him. His response according to him was to file a police report, contact the FBI, and call law enforcement agencies in Oregon even though he lives in Florida. We did not commit any crimes against Mr. Oatley. All we did was publish publicly available information about him, repeatedly criticize him publicly for his public statements, and send him a couple of respectfully worded completely non-threatening emails.
Mr. Oatley's behavior is consistent with reports of him or his followers' behavior that we have received from others. One local independent media company says that their Facebook page was unpublished due to frivolous complaints from his followers. One local live streamer accused his followers of doxxing him or her and trying to get him or her fired. We do not know what role if any Mr. Oatley personally played in those activities.
Also, Mr. Oatley responded to our first publication by falsely accusing a live streamer of being involved with it. That streamer sent us a picture of that accusation and you can see part of it pictured above with Mr. Oatley.
Finally, Mr. Oatley also falsely accused the founder of Cop Blaster of having federal charges for stalking and extorting women. Our founder has never been convicted of stalking or extortion. He was convicted of making threatening communications to a deranged stalker that was stalking him, posting his social security number online after it was intentionally and unlawfully leaked to her through a court file by local law enforcement, doxxing his relatives when she could not get to him directly, and even swatting one of his relatives by placing a false 911 claiming that she was being held hostage in that relative's home which caused the police to respond in force ready for an armed confrontation (see Pre-Sentence report where the writer called all those activities "acts to which a reasonable person might resort under similar circumstances," at https://copblaster.com/uploads/files/edie-frolichman.pdf in which the circumstances were him refusing to delete statements someone else made on a website he owns).
