What Picking Up Trash in a Police State Looks Like: Man Cited by Police...

•, By Rachel Blevin

Two college students learned the hard way that life in a Police State often includes unnecessary interrogation, false accusations and citations for victimless "crimes," even when the suspects in question were helping to clean up the community.

YouTubers Brandon Jordan and Tristan Yaptengco, both students at Columbus State University, were interrupted by police while they were filming what they referred to as a "river treasure" video for Jordan's YouTube Channel, Jiggin' with Jordan. This consisted of the pair diving into a local river, and recovering the objects they found at the bottom—sometimes unique finds, and sometimes pieces of trash that they removed from the river.

Jordan told The Free Thought Project that he and his friends have gained a reputation in the community for helping to clean it up, while featuring their adventures on YouTube.
