has been around for many years but
this is the first time I have documented it on my web pages.
When you’re driving a car the police are not allowed to just pull you over if you look suspicious! No the only time the police can stop you is if they have either “probable cause” or “reasonable suspicion”.
“Probable cause” means the cop saw you commit a crime, such as speeding, or someone else saw you commit a crime and reported it to the cop.
“Reasonable suspicion” means a crime was committed and you happen to be in the area where the crime occurred and match the description of the suspect. Then the cops can pull you over to determine if you are the person suspected of committing the crime.
Say a Circle K is robbed at 10 p.m. by a man wearing black pants, a green shirt and a blue hat and he drives away from the robbery in an old pink Volkswagen.
While you didn’t rob the Circle K you are a mile from the robbery, it is 10:15 p.m. or 15 minutes after the robbery and you just happen to be wearing black pants, a green shirt, a blue hat and driving an old pink Volkswagen, like the robber.
Well you match the suspect to a T, and the cops have “reasonable suspicion” to pull you over and determine if you are the suspect.
What isn’t “probable cause” or “reasonable suspicion”?
Say the cop is a racist and thinks most Black people are criminals. The cop can’t just go around pulling over Black people because he thinks they are criminals. That isn’t “probable cause” or “reasonable suspicion”.
Say the cop is thinks most people leaving bars are drunk so the cop hangs around outside a bar and pulls over everybody that drives away from the bar. Again that is not isn’t “probable cause” or “reasonable suspicion”.
Now if the cop followed people driving away from bars and only pulled them over after he say them weaving or doing something else that showed a sign of drunken driving he would have “probable cause” to pull over the person.
Cops don’t like the requirement that they have to have “probable cause” or “reasonable suspicion” to stop people, and they often make up scams to give them reasons to illegally stop suspicious people with out the required “probable cause” or “reasonable suspicion” and this is one of those scams.
One scam the cops use to illegal stop people without “probable cause” or “reasonable suspicion” is to give out “good driver awards”.
The cops only stop people they think are suspicious and if they can’t arrest the person or write them any tickets they give them the “good driver awards” as a lame excuse to keep them from being sued for false arrest. The “good driver awards” usually are free ticket to a movie some theater donated.
In this scam documented here the cops use the excuse that you car, an inanimate object is giving the cop permission to pull it over with out the required “probable cause” or “reasonable suspicion”. Ain’t that great, an inanimate object can give the police permission to violate your Constitutional Rights!
In this case the cops have a “Watch your car” program which they tell you is to help reduce car theft. And ask you to join.
If you do join you give the police permission to pull you over with out “probable cause” or “reasonable suspicion” and time they see you driving between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. in the morning. In this Arizona program if you join you give the cops permission to pull you over with out “probable cause” or “reasonable suspicion” when your car is with in one mile of the Mexican border.
When you join the cops ask you to put a bumper sticker on you car that says more or less “please stop me any time you think I look suspicious”.
How stupid! Our ancestors died fighting the British tyrants to give us the Bill of Rights and these stupid morons put these stupid stickers on their cars telling the cops their car is a “Bill of Rights Free Zone”.
Now if you’re dumb enough to tell the police that you don’t have any Constitutional Rights that’s fine with me, I’m not your mother.
But if you fill out and sign a document and give it to the police that tells the police that they have the right to violate my Constitutional rights and stop me with out probable cause when I am driving your car I do have a problem with that. And I suspect this technique or ruse the cops use is not constitutional when this happens.
If you read the fine print on the document you may realized that you’re giving the police the right to abuse you. Notice it says
Police action will include the necessary precautions generally taken to protect officers when approaching a potentially stolen vehicle.I suspect that means you give the cops permission to approach you car with their guns pulled and pointed at you, if they decide to stop you. Something that would be illegal for them to do if they don’t have the required “probable cause” or “reasonable suspicion” needed to stop your car.
And when cops approach people with their guns drawn this sometimes leads to accidents and in these accidents it is usually the civilian who is killed.
