Sheriff Protects First Amendment & Becomes Internet Star

Published on Nov 30, 2012 by 

Deputy Sheriff Stan Lenic, the cop who stood up for the First Amendment by refusing to impede the free speech rights of activists at Albany International Airport, has become an Internet icon, with messages of support flooding in to the Albany County Sheriff’s Office and Lenic being honored with a commendation. A video that has now gone viral on You Tube shows Lenic refusing to follow the demands of Albany Airport’s PR director Doug Myers in having activists Jason Bermas and Ashley Jessica identified, detained or removed for handing out flyers warning travelers about the dangers of airport body scanners as part of the Opt Out and Film campaign.

“Obviously this is your constitutional right, OK? As far as you’re concerned, you’re not breaking any laws. That’s what we want to get across to you guys,” Lenic told the activists, dismissing efforts by Myers to have the two kicked out of the airport.

When Myers attempted to have the activists identify themselves, winking at Deputy Lenic as he demanded Lenic take their IDs, Lenic fired back, stating, “If I was to ask for his identification he does not have to give it to me because he’s not doing anything wrong.”
The Albany County Sheriff’s Office has since been bombarded with hundreds of positive emails and calls from liberty lovers championing Lenic for his fine work in defending the First Amendment against petty enforcers like Doug Myers.

Comments on YouTube were also overwhelmingly supportive of Deputy Lenic.

“Finally a cop that does his job properly. Makes a change from all of the bad cop films we’ve seen lately. Hats off to the man,” wrote one.

“This Sheriff is an absolute paragon for justice,” added another.

Lenic already has his own Facebook page where people are reposting the video and urging Lenic to run for Mayor.

“That’s a little overwhelming. I mean, I was doing my job I felt I was doing the right thing protecting people’s First Amendment rights,” Lenic told NewsChannel 13.

Lenic later emailed Jason Bermas the following message;

“I am overwhelmed by the support your viewers have given me. I hope other fellow officers will see this and not view the freedom of speech as a threat, but an opportunity to show the professionalism that law enforcement should be held to. I remember the day I was sworn in, and I remember that I am supposed to protect the constitution of the United States. I am proud to be a Deputy Sheriff, and try to do my job to the best of my ability so help me God.”

Lenic also told Bermas that his superiors were considering giving him an official commendation for his exemplary actions in defending the constitutional rights he swore to uphold.

    I can understand why this man has become famous, as he should be. Doing the right thing has become a seldom act. When it happens it takes everyone off guard. It gives people hope that everything could change for the better. I hope things do change for the better and if more people emulated this man it would.

    This is how the constitution can be returned to the people, through acts of humanity. When the people and the police work on the same side then they isolate the law makers. No point in making fascist laws for corporate power when the police actually protect the people against them.

    Like a pyramid all evil is now concentrated at the top, lets work to isolate them in their ivory tower of hate and greed.

    Vermin cannot stand the light to be shone on them. Lets shine a spotlight so bright that they catch fright and respect the people for a change. If the media will not do their job then the people through their police must step up for humanity.

    To all NWO “team players”, Facebook trolls, 9/11 first-responders, DHS dupes, loyal G.I. Joes, FBI spies, Fusion Center fools, infiltrators, agent provocateurs, snitches, NSA SIGINT/HUMINT guys, DNI dudes, CIA assets, DIA handlers, Homeland Security TSA agent feeler-uppers, cops on the beat, FOX News idiots who still believe the 911 myth, liberal ASSange lovers, Peace activists still working within the duopoly, Zionist infiltrated Tea Party constitution wavers, door-rattlers, neighborhood tattle-tales…blog this: you are being duped!

    An elite group of tribal, racist criminals, using false-flag terror (911 inside job), are reshaping the world, your country, into a global gulag. A “wild west” contrivance run by their cabal, their corporations; using privatized armies, privatized central banking, space-based weaponry (drones,HAARP), illegal wars, control of the food and its distribution, all media, the police, the banks to enforce you into slavery and fool you into spying on us. You are not part of “the team”. You are a disposable asset. You are only useful as long as you spy on us, control us for their gain. In the end, you, your children, grandchildren, etc…will suffer the same fate as those you have preyed upon. Wake up!

    Beats the heck out of a convenient, possibly staged incident of a cop giving shoes to a homeless man. Great on him! Long may he serve and protect.
