Stopped & Searched: new record?

Postby Canoe » Fri Jan 18, 2013 4:07 pm

Driver complaining about being stopped & searched on route to BM:
  • on the Interstate,
  • on the highway going North from Fernly (twice),
  • arriving in Gerlach,
  • leaving Gerlach,
  • just after Gate, and
  • yet again before they got to their site.
Driver wants advice on filing complaints against the various law enforcement entities who driver claims engaged in illegal profiling.

Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Oh, absolutely. It's designed for us all to get snarky together. Plus, the rules are different in "Open Discussion".

More subtle, because there are still times when you don't snark.

Hey look, it's the probable cause van! I say they've earned all the additional scrutiny and searches that they get.

Expecting no snark is like expecting no laugh when the photo of the van is handed up to the Judge...

Brilliantly funny.

Don't know why Rice is waiting until page 2, it's not like we care. Once a post has been answered (in a regular forum) you can snark, on the Open forum... hell, go for it.

However, at this point, if the snark isn't brilliant you may get demerits.

I hate profiling! In my case I keep getting pulled over in school zones, and I'm sure I'm driving at the speed limit!

Badger.. I was just about to ask if it said 'free candy' or 'ski trips' on the other side of the van.

I mean it's kinda like writing NAMBLA on a van and camping in Kidsville... :coffee:
