Just more tinfoil hatters and people digging for BS to gosspi about.
Oh, voices!

Having a sticker for the President of the United States on your car makes a cop look closer at your car? Jeez, I'll bet a Mt. Rushmore sticker would put them into a tailspin.

I always pay attention to cars with Obama stickers on them.

Usually, I can find drugs in the car, a warrant on one of the occupants, or a suspended/revoked license on the driver, no proof of insurance, or an expired registration. It's actually odd if I can't find one of those.

Always thought that was an odd coincidence.

I'm betting there were two Mexicans and 200 pounds of weed under the rear floor boards. This time of year you can catch good pre season sales on gardeners and pool boys.

Good police work. He identified a pattern of criminal behavior and is therefore able to constructively concentrate his efforts where they are most likely to yield results.

[/QUOTE]

The article says the police told them the presence of the sticker was why they were stopped. Also "the police advised Jonas-Boggioni to remove the sticker as to not cause any more confusion."

So I guess my question is why wouldn't you believe them when they explicitly stated the reason for the stop was the sticker? Further, even though it was a buckeye leaf, is it illegal in any jurisdiction to have a marijuana leaf sticker on your bumper?

Don't take this personally. Way too little time on the forum. Way too many posts. Just call 'em as I see 'em. I want to edit my post. I don't know you and you could be an invalid and this is your main source of entertaiment. Thanks for understanding.

Outstanding. You have identified a telltale sign of criminal intent!

If YOU'RE not joking, you won't be at the Mensa meeting.

How swift do you have to be to figure out that people dress, act, and advertise to let you know what segments of society they belong to and their beliefs and values. knowing those things, it is easy to know what crimes they are, or are not, likely to commit. Hint: if your kid has Phish stickers on his car, he doesn't think smoking dope is bad.

If you can tell things about people by looking at them, a gun will never do you any good. Awareness is your first line of defense.

A friend of mine once crossed paths with Tennessee authorities who harassed him for a couple of hours. It looked suspicious to them for a Mercedes with Florida plates to be driving at night - like it had to be a marijuana smuggler. They left it to him to re-pack his car. Sometimes the hillbilly reputation is deserved.

We all know the police would never pull someone over without a valid reason...

I think it unfair to say law enforcement was not acting reasonably. Maybe drug mules actually label their vehicles just as hazardous cargo firms label their vehicles.

By the way, the biggest potheads of the 1960s are now elderly. Flower power, free love and drug lovers, if they survived, are now seniors.

Oh well. They should just be glad the cop didn't arrest them or spray their car with lead! Friggin peasants questioning the judgment of traffic cops...

Actually, they did:
"Because the couple’s two schnauzers were barking furiously, one of the officers had Jonas-Boggioni exit the car so he could hear her better.

“What are you doing with a marijuana sticker on your bumper?” he asked her."

Kind of surprising they didn't just toss in a few canisters of CS gas and BBQ a couple "hot dogs"- schnauzers on a bun with buckeye leaf salad.
