This week, O’Keefe Media Group undertook an undercover investigation in Maui to assess the damage caused by the devastating wildfires that hit Lahaina in early August of this year. Hundreds of lives were lost or are still unaccounted for.
A recent report from the Hawaii State Department of Education has revealed that more than 2,000 children are unaccounted for in the public school system.
They’re still digging up charred corpses in the ashes.
James O’Keefe and several of his journalists traveled to Lahaina to investigate the situation at the burn zone.
Maui law enforcement officials informed OMG journalists that Governor Josh Green of Hawaii had prohibited photography on public property.
Officers told O’Keefe he would be arrested if he took photographs of the burn zone.
“OMG files lawsuit against Hawaii Gov to invalidate the criminalization of protected First Amendment activity and to also strip Maui County of any ability to criminally charge anyone who exercises their First Amendment rights,” O’Keefe said.
