A local vigilante has been arrested after he tampered with red light cameras around Long Island. Stephen Ruth, 42, has been charged with third-degree criminal tampering and second-degree obstruction of governmental administration for using a pole to push several traffic cameras toward the sky, away from vehicles going through the intersections.

Ruth claims he's doing it all on behalf of senior citizens, veterans, and people with big balls. As he puts it in the video below, "in order to do this successfully, you only need a pair of balls and a painter's extension rod." Or as he wrote in the text of the video, "No Games, Just Balls."

Ruth is unequivocally proud of his red light tampering, writing on Facebook last night:

To all the people thinking "why would he do that? Didn't he think he was going to get arrested?" Of course I knew I would be arrested. I did it for the people who come back from war and get abused by these cameras. I did it because senior citizens are getting these, the same ones that went to war for us. These same seniors live in New York's high cost environment and are being forced out of New York because of its high taxes. I also did it because every vehicle that you see with an out of state license plate is not receiving these tickets regardless of who they are. These same people live in our state and pay lower insurance rates because their cars are registered out of state under someone else's name.

Police say he tampered with at least four cameras near or around Ronkonkoma this month: on Ocean Avenue and the Long Island Expressway South Service Road on Aug. 21 and on Aug. 24, and at Hawkins Avenue and the LIE South Service Road yesterday shortly before his arrest.

When someone said he sounded addicted to tearing down cameras, he responded: "I'm not addicted to anything more just tired of getting f*****...And honestly I'm trying to start an uprise." Ruth also posted another video on Facebook of his red light camera shenanigans: "Share this if you have balls."

Share this if you have balls.

"Balls baby, Many men can find them in their wives purses," he wrote in another Facebook post thanking someone for comparing him to Martin Luther King Jr.

Would it surprise you to learn that Ruth is an adamant fan of one Donald Trump and likes posting memes about Bill and Hillary Clinton being cousins? "Trump is a professional negotiator not a politician. He will kick ass. Take America back. No more free rides for the lazy. Let's rebuild America," he wrote in one recent Facebook post. Or as he said in another post, "TRUMP IS OUR ONLY HOPE."
