A FAMILY AFFAIR IN COPWATCHING: HOW A FATHER-SON DUO IS CHAMPIONING CIVIL LIBERTIES

Updated: Dec 28, 2023

Ever heard of a family bonding over civil liberties and First Amendment audits? Well, that's us – a dynamic father-son duo with a shared passion for copwatch, freedom to record, and standing up for our rights. Our journey into the heart of civil liberties activism started with a YouTube video that struck a chord and led to the birth of Accountability Alert.

One evening, amidst our usual political banter (which, trust me, is as fiery as a copwatch confrontation), we came across a video by Audit the Audit. The title? "Informed Sergeant Orders Officer To Release Citizen." This wasn't just any video; it was a deep dive into the world of First Amendment audits, racking up millions of views. It showcased the critical importance of the freedom to record in public spaces and the power of knowing your rights during police interactions.


Here's the deal: Father and Son are like two sides of a political coin, often clashing but always circling back to mutual respect. This video, however, did something extraordinary. It bridged our divide, highlighting our shared belief in the fundamental principles of First Amendment audits and the right to record. It was a eureka moment, proving that civil liberties transcend political lines.


Fueled by this newfound common ground, we launched Accountability Alert. It's our platform dedicated to educating the public about copwatch activities, the nuances of First Amendment audits, and the ethics of freedom to record. We're here to demystify legal jargon and make civil liberties accessible to everyone, regardless of which side of the aisle you're on.


So, whether you're a seasoned First Amendment auditor, a copwatch enthusiast, or just curious about your rights, we invite you to join our journey. At Accountability Alert, we blend family dynamics with serious discussions about freedom of speech, the right to record, and the power of peaceful auditing. Remember, understanding your rights is the first step towards protecting them.
