First Amendment Check? Meet Fourth Amendment Check.
Two black-masked and Antifa-hoodied @$$holes outside a nearby post office, filming everyone coming and going, physically stopping people from entering with no authority and saying "Temperature check!", while photographing and video and audio recording them without prior consent as they entered. Including moi. And then instigating and provoking the people telling them to knock it off, pushing for a fight.
Um, no, @$$holes.
"9-1-1? Yes, two people performing unlawful detentions, trespassing on federal property and loitering with intent, harassing customers coming and going and creating a disturbance, stalking, recording people without their consent, and filming without a permit. There's two of them, so that would be a felony criminal conspiracy to do all of the same. IANAL, but I'm pretty sure that's about seven misdemeanors and two felonies, as we speak..."
Two minutes later, two of the city's finest show up, and five minutes after that, both of the offenders leave in handcuffs. Game Over? Oh no. Games are just beginning.
Now they can do their First Amendment Check from inside the county jail, and once the particulars go online, I can also file a civil action. I haven't decided how butthurt I am, but lawyers' fees and whatever the going rate of punishment tax would seem to be in order.
Hopefully, after they pawn their cameras, they'll still have enough money for rent, if they ever get out of jail before trial. If not, hopefully they have friends who'll send the soap-on-a-rope, or they may make some new shower friends in the lock-up.
You want to film non-national defense public buildings, or record police officers' public actions? That's 1st Amendment protected, so ROWYBS. I'd have sent you bail money if you'd been arrested for doing that.
But you have no right to film everyone about their private business, record their likeness and voice for monetized Youtube bux without their signed consent, harass and stalk them for calling you out on it, nor loiter and trespass on federal property to perform all of the above.
In an open carry state, they might have had that conversation at gunpoint while waiting for their black-and-white taxi service. As it is, they're both lucky no one had pepper spray and an itch to make a point.
And next, the postal inspectors can refer them to the US Attorney for federal charges.
Learn all of the relevant laws, or pay the price for fucking around and finding out, you stupid bastards.
Don't drop the soap.
