Watch a bogus stop and search

This 17 minute video is definitely worth your time. It demonstrates how giving someone a badge gives him or her free reign to violate your rights and potentially ruin your life. One wonders what would have happened to this person if there wasn’t a dash cam recording the stop? Driving under the influence of drug case and allegedly refusing a blood test? Nothing would surprise me.
Thanks to David Drumm for his original blog post (on Jonathan Turley’s blog), which I am “reblogging” in its entirety because I agree with everything he said.

  1. If you think this cop is the only one your wrong!!! This happends everyday in the USA. Anything over a 20 minute traffic stop in considered unlawful detainment. He was there over 45 minutes.

  2. I reposted this to my blog. I tell people that these kinds of traffic stops happen all the time; they usually respond with a song and dance about innocent people having nothing to hide, which misses the point entirely.
