(The Daily Caller) A police officer at Modesto Junior College in California told a patriotic  libertarian student that it was against college rules for him to hand out copies  of the U.S. Constitution on campus.

Ironically, this flagrant violation of the student’s Constitutional rights  took place on September 17th: Constitution Day.

The exchange between student Robert Van Tuinen and a campus police officer  was captured on video. Tuinen told the officer  that he wished to start a Young Americans for Liberty chapter on campus, and  hoped that passing out copies of the Constitution would generate interest in  that. The officer, however, maintained that Van Tuinen was not allowed to  distribute flyers without college authorization.
