Officer Walter Garrett insisted that this was illegal, so he and his partner approached and searc... (more)

The Free Thought ProjectJul 10
A video from the 4th of July was uploaded to Facebook this week and is quickly going viral. The reason it’s going so viral is that it appears to show a police officer being particularly adamant about upholding the rights of citizens.
