Child right's advocate Marian Wright Edelman once said, "If you don't like the way the world is, you change it." We're guessing David Montenegro is a firm believer in that idea. You'll recall that Montenegro, better known by his legal name of Human, is the New Hampshire man who fought and won a case in the state's Supreme Court to obtain a vanity plate that read "COPSLIE." Now, Human has announced that he'll be making at the state's House of Representatives.

Human will be running for the Democratic seat in the state's 22nd District, which covers the city of Rochester, according to ABC affiliate WMUR-9. His primary opponent is 86-year-old Democratic incumbent Rose Marie Rogers.

It's not clear what sort of platform Human will run on, although there's at least one officer that doesn't see him making a successful run at public office.

"I'm thinking he's probably not going to get too far," Nashua, NH Master Patrolman John Yurcak told The Washington Free Beacon. "Most people are pretty reasonable and their exposure to law enforcement doesn't produce this guy's chip-on-the-shoulder."

The state primary will take place on September 9.

      So now he wants to be politician. And we know that politicians always tell the truth...

      The NH House of Representatives has 400 members, the largest of any state. There's bound to be a few oddballs in there.

        That's pretty surprising when you consider how small the state of New Hampshire is. It's also surprising when considering the state's somewhat more fiscally conservative and libertarian reputation, and the motto on their license plates being "Live Free or Die".

          Members of the NH General Court (House and Senate) are paid $100/year plus mileage. Each seat represents about 3000 citizens, and is up for election every two years. These are true citizen legislators, the way our forefathers intended. While there are always a few exceptions, most of these people serve a term or three and go back to their jobs, farms, and businesses. I know my state rep, who is in his first term. It's a much better system than most states.

          Well, that's 400 people on the dole, too.

      I think it's ironic that he is going after Cops for lying by trying to become a politician. Don't get me wrong cops lie as to people in every type of job including the church, but politicians have to be at the top of the list.

      Was anyone surprised he's a Democrat?

      He is right about that, and I applaud him for making the statement. Most cops are thugs who can't wait to use their guns.

        I disagree. Most LEOs didn't start out that way although considering the starting pay they're not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

      Attention NH Master Patrolman John Yurcak. Cops lie. Get used to it.

      Mr. Human is the person Democrats and republicans should be afraid of. He is exhibiting that which we all want. All it will take is one dollar from each of us who agree. I am not from New Hampshire, I am in Florida.

      I'm willing to bet this moron gets pulled over. A LOT.

        I bet he does NOT get pulled over a lot. I bet his car has cameras and he is just waiting to prove cops lie. So I would assume a cop would be smart enough not to get caught in that trap. He is just waiting to sue a police dept.

          And cops also have dash cams…I'm willing to be when he gets pulled over his own cams will prove he screwed up.

      "His primary opponent is 86-year-old Democratic incumbent Rose Marie Rogers."..... 86! How can she help run a state when she probably can't run a dishwasher! YIKES!

      i agree with that statement saying he can only get so far trying to find a public office while with holding an obvious grudge such as that.

      I dont live there but I think I would elect anyone over an 86year old. With age comes wisdom but with that age comes medical issues that could effect all of her constituents, Its time to get the senility out of office.
