Man writes open Facebook post after traffic stop

An Arizona man is getting recognized across the country after pouring out his personal thoughts following a traffic stop recently.

Steven Hildreth Jr. said he was pulled over in Tucson, AZ for a broken headlight. When the officer got to the car, he asked Hildreth if he had any weapons. Hildreth told him the truth: he was a concealed carry permit holder and had a gun on his hip.

Coincidentally, his wallet was in his back-right pocket. He told the cop both of those things and the cop needed to disarm him before he could get to his wallet. Here's what happened next:

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); = id; js.src = "//"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

His post has received more than 276,000 shares in just two days and is being picked up across the country.
