Officials with the University of South Alabama say that a campus police officer should not have issued a citation to student D.J. Parten for wearing an empty holster on campus during a gun rights protest. The officer was caught on video admitting that wearing the holster did not violate any laws or school rules but telling Parten that he should be "polite and respectful" next time then citing him for "causing alarm."
