Big thanks to a reader and friend for sending me this video.
This is the latest from “Long Island Audit” and if you don’t know what that is, allow me to explain.
I’ve definitely audited several Long Islands in my time on a beach chair overlooking the ocean (or wait, maybe those were Mai Tais?) but either way, it’s not that kind of Long Island.
No, these guys film interactions in public, government owned (public owned) places, often interacting with police who (allegedly) overstep the line of their authority, to show people the rights we all have but we’ve either given up on or never knew we had in the first place.
Like the right to peacefully be in a public space!
Government owned buildings and places (like Post Offices and Sidewalks) are owned by WE THE PEOPLE!
Government owns nothing, it only has what it takes from the citizens. So never forget that these are OUR places, not some imaginary thing owned by “Government”.
Government’s sole reason for existence is to serve and protect WE THE PEOPLE, and it seems like almost everyone has forgotten about that.
Which is why I love these videos so much.
Here’s more on Long Island Audit:
Long Island Audit is a YouTube channel and website run by Sean Paul Reyes that focuses on First Amendment audits. These audits involve testing and documenting the reactions of government officials and law enforcement to individuals exercising their First Amendment rights, such as recording in public spaces. The channel’s goal is to raise awareness about constitutional rights and promote transparency in government.
In a recent incident at Danbury City Hall in July 2021, Reyes was arrested for trespassing and creating a public disturbance. He was later found guilty of simple trespass and ordered to pay a $90 fine. This incident has sparked conversations about the importance of First Amendment rights and the role of public officials in upholding them.
Long Island Audit has gained a following on Twitter as well. In a recent X (previously Twitter) post, a user shared a video of Reyes interviewing a person named Too Apree, which highlights the channel’s dedication to documenting interactions with public officials and promoting open dialogue about constitutional rights.
In conclusion, Long Island Audit is a platform run by Sean Paul Reyes that aims to raise awareness about First Amendment rights and promote transparency in government through First Amendment audits and public engagement.
And now for the latest video which is so well done….
Fair warning first though, this might get your blood boiling! I was about ready to stand up and fight someone by the end of it!
Major credit to this guy for staying so calm and calming standing on his Rights as an American Citizen.
