Default [Video] Cops go fishing

Cop makes up bogus reason for a traffic stop, driver's dash cam luckily shows cop was full of shit. Even though the driver rolled over like some of you cop lovers, he still gets his shit ransacked and even looks like the cop cut open car upholstery. Also, K-9 unit clearly fakes a positive as they can easily do to pretend a search is justified if you refuse.
Guessing the platinum pick up was too nice for the cop to ignore.

That's one big WTF. Just goes to show the blatant disregard for the law exhibited by the federal gendarmes is not lost on a lot of state & local police.

When you are forced to get out of the car, that's the time to STFU, invoke the 5th, and tell them you don't want to delay them at all in writing the ticket with a bunch of small talk.

The cop is stalling for time trying to get the drug dog on site, that's the whole point for having someone get out of the car in the first place, and then engaging in a bunch of questions. Stall for time.

Alternatively, he could have just cut to the chase and told the cop, look I understand what's happening here, a pretext stop to search my car, then tell the cop you'll give permission as soon as he's done writing the ticket or warning and gives him his ticket. Assuming the cop falls for that, when he has the ticket and license in hand, say sorry, you changed your mind, you don't consent to search, are you free to go. Bonus if you get the cop to admit he has no other violations or suspicions prior to that, and on tape. After that, the stop is supposed to be over, so continuing the detainment to wait for a dog he now has to call is unlawful.

Having said that, it looks like, from the video, that the initial infraction alleged didn't even happen, so a guy willing to lie just to stop you probably isn't going to be constricted by any other legal nicety.

Still, this is a chicken shit cop. If he was any good at his job, he should be able to tell within a couple of minutes whether the guy's a drug mule or not. He's trying to seize cash, guns, and drugs. Why would you waste your time with someone who obviously isn't doing any of that? This isn't who you are looking for. Kick him loose and try again instead of going through the motions and turning yet another honest citizen into a cop hater.

I don't know if they already do, but someone with an extreme amount of knowledge, should offer seminars on what is, and is not allowed and what is and is not probable cause, etc. The same people should be training officers as well.

In my opinion, right, wrong, or indifferent, his refusal to let the officer search the car, worked against him. My only point of reference is Live PD, Cops, etc. but I've seen enough examples to know that is the critical turning point.

Houston. Splains it all...chithole.
I could post a gazillion recordings, articles etc of LE saving a LOT of lives and doing good deeds.
But no reason to because; The good FAR outweighs the bad.
Don't like the LE in your community? Relocate.
We have city police, county sheriffs, and state police. Along with Fish and Game and the Forest Service personel.
I'm grateful for all of them and not once has myself nor family member been treated unfairly. In fact a number of times they've been quite helpful. YMMV

This was Bexar County (pronounced 'bear'), so Central Texas, somewhere around San Antonio.....not Houston.

The last time I got pulled over cost me twenty minutes of my life. Didn't end up with a ticket. Dude probably thought I was on drugs considering how much I laughed at him. Plain to see they aren't used to dealing with honest people.

When asked why I refused a search I asked if he wanted me to search his car. He pondered the question and said no. I said "now you know how I feel". So then he tries the old threaten me with a dog trick and I said "Do whatever you want, I've got all day". He looked like somebody shot his damned dog.

None of his Jedi mind tricks worked because I don't GAFF if I get a ticket or not. I'd just add it to the pile from when I was younger.

It was also last year. The Bexar County Sheriff's Department is full of corruption, starting at the top with Sheriff Salazar. He's a piece of shit.

I never trust cops. They're allowed to lie to you but you can't lie to them. How ****ed up is that?
