"Failure to Obey" Documentary on Checkpoint Refusal

-Tyler Bass
One hundred twenty kilometers from the US-Mexico border, Steven Anderson thought his constitutional right to be free of unlawful search and seizure was intact. That was where, in 2009, Customs and Border Patrol stopped Anderson, a pastor, and indicated that a canine had alerted them to the presence of hidden drugs or humans in the back of his car. When Anderson refused to consent to a search, the Texas Department of Public Safety smashed his windows and tased the leader of Faithful Word Baptist Church.

His new documentary examines what life is like for the 197 million Americans who live within 100 miles of the US border, and under the scrutiny of checkpoint searches.
