This man hopes that his ‘free hugs’ tour will help put an end to violence in America, by building a bond between police and the millions who watch his entertaining videos.

Since then, he’s shown up at political rallies, and in the video above, at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio last week. Some of the officers and pedestrians he targeted for hugs there had seen one of the dozens of videos from his trips around the country posted to his YouTube and Facebook channels.

The video below shows the Sanford force is working in a few dance moves with children while patrolling their beat in black communities. Check this one out…
