Always thought that was an odd coincidence.
See you at the Mensa meeting. I REALLY hope you're joking.

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=Bren;19995141

That the officer asked about the sticker doesn't mean that's the basis for the stop and the article does not say it was or that they were told the basis for the stop. They weren't even aware enough to know what police department it was..

[/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.

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.

The only thing more pathetic than these lazy and no good officers is pathetically grasping to defend them. You really can't fix stupid.

Kind of makes you wonder what kind of dirty **** those that defend them are involved in.

I wonder how they would react if they saw someone with a False Aralia plant?

Should have proned them out and tased them just to make sure they were no longer a threat. Good grief! Our ROE here gives the Taliban better protections than my own parents have driving down the road.

Some people refuse to believe you can't judge a book by it's cover. Those people don't usually know much outside of their own little world.

Missing the point is one thing but this has effectively tuned into a strawman argument.

No one is denying that profiling is effective. The problem here is there was nothing that warranted the stop based solely on the information given. Try to stay on point.
