Tyler Merritt of Nashville has one mission with this video: get to know him better. Maybe if you did, you'd be less likely to call the cops on him. This follows a lot of high profile incidents, like the one in Philadelphia, where a Starbucks manager had cops haul two men of color out of the restaurant because they hadn't bought anything. (They were waiting for a friend who arrived as they were being hauled away to jail.)
This, and other incidents like it, hurt Tyler Merritt deeply. That's why he made this video that's gone viral (10million views and counting). If people would get to know other people better, they might not have them arrested when nothing's wrong.
