A Border Patrol agent claimed he was in fear for his life when a man started video recording from a back seat of a car during an inland immigration checkpoint in Texas last week.
“I don’t know if it’s a weapon, if it’s a knife or if it’s a gun. Let me have your phone,” the agent said.
But the man with the phone, a popular libertarian activist named Tony Stiles who was traveling to Florida from California for a speech he was going to give -- never once crossing the border into Mexico -- refused to hand it over.
“You know full well it’s not a fucking weapon,” Stiles responded. “Are you fucking kidding me?”
