Wednesday we sat down with Mike Whiter, a retired United States Marine Corps Staff Sergeant and combat veteran, to talk about his plans to receive the first non-criminal citation in Philadelphia under a new city ordinance.

Whiter intends to light up at City Hall on the morning of Monday, October 20th. Here’s Mike on his plans (video produced with our madmen-at-arms, Scrapple TV):
