Youtuber, gun enthusiast, and friend of GunsAmerica Hank Strange was pulled over on Easter Sunday in Gainesville, Florida, by Alachua County sheriffs because the window tint on his Dodge Challenger was too dark, allegedly.
Whether that was the real reason the police stopped Strange or whether it was just a pretext for a more troubling reason — Hank was racially profiled — is not exactly clear. Hank obviously feels strongly that he was racially profiled and provides good evidence to support that suspicion, yet unfortunately the evidence is not concrete enough to definitively prove his case. In other words, the officers have enough plausible deniability to avoid any charge that they stopped Strange because he was black.
But despite the rather troubling circumstances of the stop, Strange turns the lemons he was handed into lemonade by using footage from the incident to discuss it and give sound advice to the gun community.
What he ultimately says is that worry first about getting home safely, then your Constitutional rights. It makes total and complete sense. You can watch Hank remain calm, cool and collected during the stop when the officers proceed to disarm him with his hands on the hood of the police car.
