What do you do when you are reading your email on your phone and two cops decide to harass you for suspected terrorism?

You do what this guy did. Always start with the golden questions, “Am I being detained? Am I free to go?”

Be cordial and do not answer questions. Hopefully in time, they will realize how ridiculous the situation is and they will let you go.

The sweet beard is optional.
