Shortly before noon I was driving in downtown Claremore, Ok when the flashing lights come on behind me. The first thing the cop asks is if I knew why he stopped me. I said no. He said defective exhaust system. (My van doesn't smoke at all and isn't at all loud.) In the squad car he runs my tag and finds nothing amiss. He gives me a warning ticket for defective exhaust and never says a word about my exhaust. He says I am free to go but he wants to ask me another question. Do I have any drugs, alcohol, guns, knives or bombs in the van. I say no. He says do I mind if he checks. I say he has no reason to search my van so he calls for a drug dog crew. He says my eyes are bloodshot so I must be doing drugs. Now I not free to go all of a sudden. The drug dog doesn't hit on the van so the dickhead finally lets me go. This is outrageous bullshit. From a bogus defective exhaust warning to searches and drug dogs because he doesn't like the looks of my eyes. Where is this shit going to end?

That is ridiculous skip, some cops are truely assholes, if he had asked you about the drugs first and then ended up getting a dog crew out, I'm sure you would have gotten a ticket. :shake: pricks

Oh, yeah, after the dog cleared me the dickwad asked if he could pat me down. There were 3 cop cars there by this time so I let him and he found nothing. I think my out of state tag attracted him as there isn't much suspicious about a 59 year old man driving an Astro van with ladders on top. Obviously a work vehicle. He sure was disappointed he didn't get anything but a no revenue warning ticket out of the deal.

yep, I bet he was, what the hell could he have been thinking to go all out on a search :( I have always said if a cops want to search me or my vehicle, without probable cause, and I wouldn't think red eyes is a cause, hell the sun or allergies could cause that, I would make them get a search warrent just to be a big bitch. :p

So 2 weeks ago I let Justin the 14 year old have 2 friends over on fri nite after the game. No big deal, their friends stay all the time. But this time this boy named Clint stayed, he is new this last school year. So I go to bed about midnight and give them the same ole lecture...do not drink our booze, do not steal my truck, and do not tepee anyone in my neighborhood...and if you do...you better not get caught.

So at 1:30 the doorbell rings and it's my neighbor down the street who is a constable......I go out side and there are 4.....FOUR cop cars with lights flashing with my son and his 2 friends. Unbelievable....in my neighborhood.

As it turns out they were going to tepee houses but my constable neighbor saw them out walking past curfew, so he called backup because they all ran in different directions. Nothing happened to the boys as far as the cops go...I made them call their moms and tell and go home right then and there.

So anyway what gets me is 4 cop cars with lights flashing for 14 year olds...and yes my son was wrong, but 4 cars.

I know it doesn't seem fair, and not knowing the specifics (from the cops point of view)....he was over-zealous to be sure, but probably within rights....

First, if he pulls you over....and you are in anyway acting suspicious, that may have caused him to inquire further. Second, the red eyes alone wouldn't have done it; IF he asked to search your van, he had something else he was going on....your driving, the smell of your clothes or van, possible other "profiling" observations he didn't mention to you. Once you refused permission for the search, in some states.....that constitutes "reasonable suspicion" and, in an automobile, they don't NEED a search warrant.

The standard for most of society, in most circumstances is "probable cause" which would be used to obtain a search warrant. However, automobile incidents are legally considered "exigent circumstance" which means, basically....because you could flee to Mexico before he could obtain a search warrant, that the standard for a search is lowered to "reasonable suspicion."

Basically, it becomes your word against his (and his video-cameras.) If he claims, credibibly to have had "reasonable suspicion"....if you were to push this as a violation of your rights or whatever, he would merely have to convince a jury that his suspicion was reasonable. Not a difficult task really. Although, I do realize some cops use this fact to be even more over-zealous than their colleagues.

It kinda sucks, but that's the way it goes...

YES they DO need a search warrant to search a vehicle. Why would the cop ask me for permission if they didn't? And why did I drive away after denying permission if they didn't need a warrant?

I'm not trying to get in a pissin' match with you Skip....no, they DON'T need a search warrant to search your vehicle IF he has reasonable suspicion; when the dog didn't hit on your van though....I suspect he felt less sure of his "reasonable suspicion." He asked for permission, as a courtesy....and you'd be surprised at the number of folks who say, yes, hoping that gets the cop off their back.

He brought the dog, to verify his "suspicion".....had he not had access to a dog, and he felt his suspicion to be reasonable....he could have searched the van without a warrant. I'm not kidding.

Funny how people always state that they have a right to refuse to be searched but assume the cop doesn't have a right to ask to do so.

I also find it funny that most cops I know (and I know plenty) are former drunks and potheads. They're not always right (or intelligent) but they're not complete idiots either.

Plus, I've read your posts for a good while now and know you deserve to be given as much $#it as possible... :)

Pretty much dependss on whether they meet the burden of resonable suspicion (pretty sure SDChiefs is right on the term). Its pretty easy for a cop to meet that standard if he really wants to search your van. From what i can recall just saying your eyes look bloodshot so he thinks you may be holdin is enough.

Also my response may be oversimplified because i cant remember it all that well.

That's all just doubletalk, typical of you. That dog wasn't on any sort of standby, he circled the vehicle three times while sniffing. YOU need to check with a lawyer. I drove away from a cop who was bent on searching my van today. That proves they need a warrant. I've seen cases where the cops have detained a vehicle while they went to a judge and got one.

Cops like every other group of people have their share of jerks. Sometimes you will bump into the picked on in school guys out to be the tough guy. That said most I have known or been around are good people with a shit job for shit pay. I am glad there are people willing to do the job. The problem is when a person is a jerk in that job they have alot of power. It sucks you got the raw deal Skip. My oldest brother is a former detective and my niece is PD, over the years I have seen both sides.

Go read a law book, or government book....your driving away simply proves he was less sure of his reasonable suspicion once the dog didn't hit on your van--that's all. He decided he bigger fish to fry, and didn't want to deal with the messy "his word vs. my word" thing that would have taken place in court. FTR, your van was "searched"---by the dog.

Bottom-line: If they have reasonable suspicion, they don't need a warrant. If you wanna believe they don't need a warrant, keep thinking that....but you better not run across an even more over-zealous cop, because he won't get a dog or a warrant. And for you to have the search declared invalid, you'll be going to court in a case you'll probably lose.

You are an idiot. The cop wanted to "pat me down" after the dog failed to hit on the van. The dude just wouldn't give up. He wanted a bust but bad. And he was denied a search of my van because he didn't have probable cause to search it, so he had no grounds for a warrant. I'll tell you once more then I'm done arguing with your ignorance. The cop REALLY wanted to search my vehicle. I said NO. He got the dog trying for probable cause and didn't get it. He then asked to frisk me and I should have said NO but I let him since there were 6 of his buddies there by now. He was very embarrassed for all the show and go from a "defective exhaust systems" warning to a full blown drug bust extravaganza.

The fact that you go so far out of your way to insult other people's intelligence on such a consistant basis has always shown how insecure you are about your own intelligence and your education. You have always been so curious why I say that yet you show it to be true time after time.

This is a message board, I am not interested in taking time to worry about syntax and spelling. I am a great student and do fine in writing intensive courses.

My understanding of the law is the po-po has the right to search everything in plain sight with reasonable suspicion. Trunks and glove boxes are off limits without a warrant or permission. If they ask to search your vehicle, that includes trunk and glove box - which explains why he may have asked permission. He was wanting in the glove box.

I'm no lawyer. I've been drinking. I misspell things. I'm not very intelligent.

So, you may wish to disregard all the above.

Shortly before noon I was driving in downtown Claremore, Ok when the flashing lights come on behind me. The first thing the cop asks is if I knew why he stopped me. I said no. He said defective exhaust system. (My van doesn't smoke at all and isn't at all loud.) In the squad car he runs my tag and finds nothing amiss. He gives me a warning ticket for defective exhaust and never says a word about my exhaust. He says I am free to go but he wants to ask me another question. Do I have any drugs, alcohol, guns, knives or bombs in the van. I say no. He says do I mind if he checks. I say he has no reason to search my van so he calls for a drug dog crew. He says my eyes are bloodshot so I must be doing drugs. Now I not free to go all of a sudden. The drug dog doesn't hit on the van so the dickhead finally lets me go. This is outrageous bullshit. From a bogus defective exhaust warning to searches and drug dogs because he doesn't like the looks of my eyes. Where is this shit going to end?

You can file a complaint on the guy for harassment at this point. He's clearly out of line.

My understanding of the law is the po-po has the right to search everything in plain sight with reasonable suspicion. Trunks and glove boxes are off limits without a warrant or permission. If they ask to search your vehicle, that includes trunk and glove box - which explains why he may have asked permission. He was wanting in the glove box.

I'm no lawyer. I've been drinking. I misspell things. I'm not very intelligent.

So, you may wish to disregard all the above.
Consider all of the above disregarded. You're right, you're no lawyer. I'm not either but I drove away from a rookie cop that was crushed when he couldn't search my van. You should have seen the look on his face when the dog acquitted me. I'd have killed that dog right then if I could have. I was sitting in the squad car sweating bullets waiting to see if I was going to be convicted by a dog.

Skip will have to hear it from 10 other people before he believes somethin' I said.... :p

Well the fact that it depends on the state, might be the reason.


When the officer handed your boyfriend the warning ticket for swerving, your legal encounter was over. Your boyfriend had the right to ask the officer at that point "Am I free to go?" The answer should have been yes.

The officer had no probable cause to bring a canine to search your car. You were stopped for a traffic violation and the officer had no reasonable grounds for being suspicious. The problem is that cops are allowed to lie while conducting an investigation. He lied that he had the right to bring the dog to your car.

When your boyfriend provided the evidence, the pipe, he in effect, confessed and waived his rights. For that reason he wouldn't have a defense in court. Had he refused to cooperate, the cop would have eventually given up or brought in a dog. If he had brought the dog without reasonable suspicion, any evidence found would have been thrown out because of illegal search. There is a caveat here. Cops lie all the time in court, so the cop might tailor the story to fit the judge's expectations.

Here are some model scripts for any further encounters with law enforcement:

Cop: You don't mind if I search your car, do you?
You: Yes I do, officer.
Cop: Why? Are you hiding something?
You: I feel strongly that I should protect the Constitution and want to protect my rights.
You: Am I free to go now, officer?
Cop: Where are you going?
You: Why do you ask?
Cop: Are you on anything, any drugs?
You: Officer, was I violating a traffic law?
Cop: Can I look in your trunk?
You: Officer, are you going to ticket me for a violation or may I leave now?

If the officer refuses to answer whether you are free to go, say to him, "Officer, am I being detained?" If he doesn't tell you yes, slowly walk away, get in the car and drive away.

If he says yes, ask for what reason (it may be important later in court). Refuse to speak with him about anything except your name and address and the fact that you don't wish to speak without a lawyer present. Never give consent to a search because you waive all your rights.

(Thanks to California attorney William Logan for his help with this question.)

Well the fact that it depends on the state, might be the reason.

And I stated that very early in this thread, but in most states....the determining factor of whether a search warrant is required is: does the officer have sufficient grounds for a declaration of "reasonable suspicion." If so, he doesn't need a search warrant in most states.

The anecdote you cite, clearly illustrates a person who knows the precise "process" and plays their hand accordingly. A cop who isn't very confident in their "reasonable suspicion" with such a person, will know he needs to call of the dogs. With a less sophisticated, knowledgable, or experinced person, he can be more aggressive....which will often lead to discovery of something illegal, which validates his "reasonable suspicion." There are few cases where citizens are actually willing to go to court to have a cop proven "wrong" in a case like this....it just isn't worth it.

Unless you are an ardent member of the ACLU, or have something to hide. :shrug:

One entry found for anymore.


Main Entry: any·more
Pronunciation: "e-nE-'mOr, -'mor
Function: adverb
1 : any longer <I was not moving anymore with my feet -- Anaïs Nin>
2 : at the present time : NOW <hardly a day passes without rain anymore>

usage Although both anymore and any more are found in written use, in the 20th century anymore is the more common styling. Anymore is regularly used in negative <no one can be natural anymore -- May Sarton>, interrogative <do you read much anymore?>, and conditional <if you do that anymore, I'll leave> contexts and in certain positive constructions <the Washingtonian is too sophisticated to believe anymore in solutions -- Russell Baker>. In many regions of the U.S. the use of anymore in sense 2 is quite common in positive constructions, especially in speech <everybody's cool anymore -- Bill White> <every time we leave the house anymore, I play a game called "Stump the Housebreaker" -- Erma Bombeck>. The positive use appears to have been of Midland origin, but it is now reported to be widespread in all speech areas of the U.S. except New England

Yeah thats pretty much how i recall it from my first year crim procedure class. While i have forgotten most of it, my impression of the overall practical application of it is pretty much exacly the same as you stated it.

The fact that you go so far out of your way to insult other people's intelligence on such a consistant basis has always shown how insecure you are about your own intelligence and your education. You have always been so curious why I say that yet you show it to be true time after time.

This is a message board, I am not interested in taking time to worry about syntax and spelling. I am a great student and do fine in writing intensive courses.

But, maybe you are on to something. Maybe if I work harder I can become a grouchy old man that sits around and smokes pot; bitter and alone.




Maybe you should take your own advice little boy.....you telling skip you don't care about spelling.....please. Anytime someone spells a word wrong you are right there to point it out. Why do you go out of your way to insult people's intelligence on a constant basis. It's alright for zach but no one else can do it.....ROFL

I'm not trying to get in a pissin' match with you Skip....no, they DON'T need a search warrant to search your vehicle IF he has reasonable suspicion; when the dog didn't hit on your van though....I suspect he felt less sure of his "reasonable suspicion." He asked for permission, as a courtesy....and you'd be surprised at the number of folks who say, yes, hoping that gets the cop off their back.

He brought the dog, to verify his "suspicion".....had he not had access to a dog, and he felt his suspicion to be reasonable....he could have searched the van without a warrant. I'm not kidding.

B.S. And if there had drugs in the van, the officer would have had to prove that there was a problem with the exhaust significant enough to warrant being pulled over, if not, then the drugs would have never been found. Any lawyer with a brain could have gotten the arrest thrown out.

Provided there was really no problem with the exhaust. I have read many cases [if I had my notes I could give you the exact citations] concerning subsequent arrests from bogus pull-overs. They have to have a legitimate reason for pulling someone over, and they have to be able to prove and sustain that reason in court.

I never said otherwise; defective exhaust (loud muffler?) will get you pulled over in my town. I assumed the defective exhaust concern to be legit; if it were not...your rant could be justified. I'd agree with you.

I think it is reasonable suspicion for the stop, and probable cause or consent for the search of the vehicle. If the arrest you for some other reason like warrants, and have to tow the car, they could search the car as some kind of pre-impoundment inventory.

A drug dog alerting is found to be probable cause, if the initial stop is not founded on reasonable suspicion that might make the probable cause from the dog unconstitutional, not sure.

Many cops approach BS like that from a "is evidence going to be suppressed" point a view and not from a threat of a 1983 civil rights action.

Seems that if you can prove that the exhaust system had no flaws and that the stop was clearly pretextual, you would be able to show that he intentionally violated clearly established law, which is the threshold for a 1983 claim. Might not have much in the way of damages since he did you the favor of temporarily relieving you of your haunting visions of Roy Williams making it with your girl in a Bucknell jersey.

I am filing a couple of 1983 cases this year, one for a friend that I grew up with who was the victim of a BS traffic stop, that one should be a lot of fun.

I'm sorry to hear that skip...


WASHINGTON, April 4 - The Supreme Court in recent years has drawn constitutional rules for the use of newly popular law enforcement techniques. The police need a warrant before aiming a heat-detecting device at a private home in an effort to find out whether marijuana is growing inside under high-intensity lights. The police do not need a warrant before permitting a trained dog to sniff a car, or a piece of luggage at an airport, in order to detect drugs.

Those precedents converged in a case from Texas that posed this question: Can the police bring a trained dog to stand outside a private home and sniff for drugs?

The lower courts have disagreed, and the Supreme Court decided on Monday to let the confusion linger. The justices did not take the case.

The court offered no explanation for declining to hear an appeal from a Houston man, David G. Smith, whose supply of methamphetamine in his garage was detected by a trained dog.

Cop made up a charge of careless driving, but when I showed up at Court, the officer crapped his pants and told the judge he needed a continuance because his kid was at home sick.

It was pretty funny. He thought it was going to be his word against my guy's in front of a judge that he knew, but that judge had taken the day off, and the case was assigned to another judge who has a rep for being fair. He had shown up to get his OT pay and to prosecute a false charge against an unrepresented person and then he starting crying about having a sick kid at home when he realized that it would not be so easy.

Just because your life sucks Jettio is no reason to insult me, My Huskers and Bill Calahan. And not necessarily in that order. I would suggest drinking heavily young man. :thumb:

It is in the alanm flow chart to get all out of sorts over the west coast offense.

Hey, I'm really starting to like you. In the past I've noticed quite a few members of this board that don't like the ACLU. I've protested that the ACLU is all that stands between the citizen and the gubment. I really appreciate your attitude regarding the cops. Thank God there are guys like you to keep the cops off of us. My "Ace" lawyer died about 20 years ago of cancer. I wasn't afraid of anybody while Charlie was around. Now I cower in fear of any rookie with an agenda. Bless you, brother.

So he wasn't charged with any illegal substances?

At first, the dog walked right past my van and went to a flowerbed and started sniffing the flowers. I was hoping a bee would come out of one of the flowers and sting him on the nose. But, yeah, that dog should be fired.

Nope.

He did have his black skin on that night, but he did not get charged for that.

Well he should have been. That's at least as bad as defective exhaust.

I don't know what his color has to do with it, unless you are attempting to garner a higher return from the city in which the offense occurred.

If you can prove a pattern of blacks being pulled over and harassed, you would have a point - until then it is merely wild speculation.

That said, if your friend is being honest, the cop should have stepped down. He should also have to compensate your friend for the harrassment.

The cop did not resign because of this incident, but the way he handled it showed that he did not have any business being a cop.

I think he resigned because he realized that himself.

A cop gave me a good laugh yesterday... and, I'm guessing, gave another person an angry rant like Skip's.

I was sitting at an intersection, light turns green, I start to go, and the car immediately to my left slams on their brakes and their horn starts blaring. A blazer decided to run the red light and make a left turn in front of me and this other car. I remember commenting on what an asshole the driver was... but, I felt that a sufficient job of honking had been done by the guy to my left.

I had my window down, and I could hear the engine revving on the car to my left. I figured the guy was pissed and was gonna speed up to the asshole to give him the finger or something. Hell, maybe I'd even see a fistfight. At that point I glanced out my window at the car to my left... and saw the light bar in the back windshield. The dipshit ran a red light and cut off a cop in an unmarked car.

I slowed down to let the cop in front of me so he could pull over the asshole, then proceded to laugh my ass off. Man, talk about a bonehead move.

Hehe. Many years ago, I was leaving the parts store I worked at and as I turned onto the street, I absolutely lit up the tires on my El Camino. Just as tires are really beginning to boil, I look to my left and there's a cop sitting in the parking lot across the street. I just went ahead and pulled into the next lot and waited for him to come over. :banghead: :banghead:

He was real cool about it, though, and only gave me a warning. :thumb:

Then another time, a Lee's Summit cop wrote me an Exhibition of Speed ticket for BARELY chirping my tires after turning onto the road. Karma's a bitch, I guess.

Shortly before noon I was driving in downtown Claremore, Ok when the flashing lights come on behind me. The first thing the cop asks is if I knew why he stopped me. I said no. He said defective exhaust system. (My van doesn't smoke at all and isn't at all loud.) In the squad car he runs my tag and finds nothing amiss. He gives me a warning ticket for defective exhaust and never says a word about my exhaust. He says I am free to go but he wants to ask me another question. Do I have any drugs, alcohol, guns, knives or bombs in the van. I say no. He says do I mind if he checks. I say he has no reason to search my van so he calls for a drug dog crew. He says my eyes are bloodshot so I must be doing drugs. Now I not free to go all of a sudden. The drug dog doesn't hit on the van so the dickhead finally lets me go. This is outrageous bullshit. From a bogus defective exhaust warning to searches and drug dogs because he doesn't like the looks of my eyes. Where is this shit going to end?

You're singing to the choir man. The number of banned substances goes up every year. The amount of laws we have goes up every year, nothing ever comes off the books. Almost everything is a felony now, remember when you used to have to do something really bad to get one of those? The incarceration rate of this county went up 10 fold in 20 years. We are now producing more career criminals than ever before with no end in sight. All of this is going on and most people even here at the Planet could give a sh!t as long as there is still steak on the table.

Lee's Summit cops have always sucked. The last ticket I got in Missouri was a ticket for warning of radar by a Lee's Summit cop. I was doing the customary flashing of my brights to warn oncoming traffic of a speed trap and another L.S. copy gave me a ticket for it.

About 2 years before that I got arrested and charged with disturbing the peace for flipping off a cop.

Most of the people who could give a shit less are the people who aren't engaged in illegal activities in the first place.

Now, i'm not saying I agree with the alot of the laws, especially those of which are contradictory, but i'm not going to break them just because I don't like them. I keep hearing about how things are changing, and our rights are being infringed upon...


..but mine have yet to be. I suppose i'll develop a different attitude when they are.

Disturbing the peace for flipping off a cop? Good thing you used the sign language version instead of yelling F-You at the cop, you may have been charged with aggravated assault.
