Love it!

We need many more willing to take a stand like Lenic... Thank you Sir!

Another term for preventive war is aggressive war- starting wars because someday somebody might do something to us. That is not part of the American tradition.

Did you catch that?

The Airport "Authority" said you are welcome back, just fill out our simple permit form (what happened to the million dollar insurance?) with all your personal information. Looks like they still don't understand the lesson here: WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO FILM and distribute information, we don't need your permission!! Time to take them up on it and "occupy" the airport with more respectful and informed activist.

"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."
Thomas Jefferson

The "Authority" is still trying to justify their jobs

In this bidding war for whose position is going to prevail, the airport system servants must decide how to secure their private or government pay by doing their bidding without overtly violating others rights.

The sheriff simply helped the airport custodian remember his lawful limits. When he couldn't have his way with demands of ID and implied threats of legal damages if they didn't have, "million dollar insurance", even making false claims of "commercial" filming and blocking the escalators; this man with a title couldn't he believe wouldn't have his will done just by speaking these words at those he thought of as less than himself, including Deputy Sheriff Stan Lenic. He didn't know how badly he failed at the prime directive, i.e. DON'T GET CAUGHT ON VIDEO!

This permit process request is these custodians attempt at saving face while trying to justify their jobs. Our right to peaceably assemble and speak by means of our voice and printed page, in a way that does not impede or injure the rights of others to pass if they do not wish to hear or read; is simply NOT something requires anyone else's permission!

As more people start video taping....

and more people see things like the outcry of public opinion directed towards the airport authority... the FEAR instilled in corrupt government officials will increase... then we will have more liberty freedom.

The limits of tyrants

are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppose.

Glad to see this on the DP

AMAZING! I've been treated badly like this many times and noone

seemed to care. Because this cop did the right thing it's all over the news--THANKYOU STAN LENIC!!

This Officer

..will be demoted some day imo and/or get traffic duty.

Plz see Russian whistleblower policeman fired and arrested on corruption. It is the order of things.



A full "DAY IN THE LIFE OF A CONSTITUTIONAL OFFICER" video, starring Peace Officer Lenic.

Great Job Guys

Blessed are the peacemakers

It's sad we live in a time

Where it makes the news when a cop actually protects constitutional rights and police brutality is ignored, because it is all so common place.

Police officers take note. This is all it takes to be a good police officer, to protect the rights of the people. Isn't this treatment better for all sides by protecting our rights? I hope other cops see this and aspire to be like him. The police/citizen relationship would improve like crazy if more were like this. This guy is a superstar for doing the right thing. Thank you deputy!

Yeah, maybe if they started policing their own

They wouldn't be so hated. Protecting thugs within your own ranks makes you guilty too... Far worse to be looked at by a whole nation as UnConsitutional jackbooted thugs than it is to have a little peer pressure from being called a rat.

Be an anonymous whistle-blower for your country, the nation will love you for it.

I don't respond to emails or pm's.
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

This wave should be surfed in all the way.

This is a great opportunity to get some publicity for the cause and get other TSA, HLS, Police etc.... to see the popularity, the heroism, the good, and perhaps rewire their brainwashed minds into seeing the light.

I'm talking Leno and other type publicity.

Anyone have contact info for that Sheriff dept? I'd love to write that officer/dept a nice email.

Jason Burmas comported

Jason Burmas comported himself like a gentleman and he was treated as such.

So many "activists" just go out in a confrontive way and self fulfill their prophecies -- ignorance that sets the movement back.

Myself included in the past.

Thanks to all who made this happen.

This video brought tears to my eyes

Thanks for the good news. Every day we see stories of police brutality and violations of rights. It is so rare to see a police officer doing something like this. Wish we had more stories like this one.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis

This is activism at it's FINEST!

1) Two Activists that new their rights and mission, and executed both flawlessly!

2) Drawing out the NWO bully's response, and getting it on video.

and the best ...
3) A very well informed Sheriff does his job and get's recognized.

4) Viral Youtube causes MSM to cover it. (To save their diminishing credibility)

An apology would be a useful comment.

Here Doug, try spitting this out:
"My job is to see things run smoothly at the airport. I was worried about the travelers on this high volume day and I over-reacted. I apologize."
The sad part of this is what a big deal it is. This is what we ought to expect of Law enforcement.

This is the article that got my posting privileges revoked:

We need to follow this guy.

This Sheriff Deputy may one day run to be Sheriff. From there, maybe congressman?

He deserves a moneybomb if/when he runs.

that crossed my mind also

as I'm sure it has crossed deputy Lenic's mind as well ;)

Thanks for the Update

This is good stuff !!
