An IL officer stops 2 men in an alleged illegal traffic stop & subsequent K-9 search. Was the stop or search justified?

Illinois cops are complete assh*les. I was in CA for vacation and we broke down on the highway and the cops asked us if we needed help, then stayed behind us with their lights on until the tow truck came. What would happen in Illinois? They would probably have you cuffed and against the car in 5 minutes for no reason.

I`m surprised he didn`t plant anything in the car when searching.

This happened to me in Kansas. It was ridiculous. He told me he pulled me over for going "5 or 6" over then asked to search my car and when i agreed to it he just turned around and walked back to my car.

Cop: "I pulled you over for swerving around while driving." He then proceeds to try to get permission to search the vehicle without doing a single sobriety test.

Yeah, someone is suspicious here, and it isn`t anyone in the red vehicle.

Not justified. Some people are control freaks and should not be in any position of power over other people. Unfortunately the government is full of thee people and they are making our lives a living Hell. This officer should be on administrative leave for at least 6 months.

Well, I would go into detail about why our general system of law enforcement, and our whole legal system to a lesser extent, is completely nonsensical, horribly, illogically designed, and just begs to be twisted and abused, but alas, I don`t have nearly enough space, so I`ll shorten it up...

When in doubt it`s generally safe to assume a cop is a bullying piece of sht who will do whatever he pleases, including giving family and friends free passes for anything short of murder, just so long as he thinks he`ll get away with it, and he usually will unless someone has a recording device on hand and/or the cop pisses enough people off, since otherwise other cops/law enforcement agents will cover up/ignore/lie about the issue until it goes away.

On that note, was it an illegal search? Yeah, most likely. Does he care? No. If cops feel like breaking the law, well, that`s their birthright as infallible gods among us silly, impotent mortals. Only us lesser beings have to obey la

He`s lucky he didn`t declare them enemies of the homeland and dissappear them both for un-American activities.

That stretch of I-70 in Collinsville has found record amounts of drugs and guns and it is well known by locals that the cops aggressively want to search every vehicle they pull over.

Unfortunately, they fit the profile, two guys, out of state plates, driving a newer truck or van. This cop was doing what he was trained to do.
What he did was an illegal search, but he either doesn`t care or doesn`t know any different.

Locals do not use that stretch of I-70, they use local roads that parallel it instead. It`s hard for anyone from out of state to avoid that stretch of I-70 and thus the state and local cops patrol it constantly in search of drugs and guns.

That`s no excuse for this cops behavior though, he should be disciplined, re-trained, or put on other duty.

"Only black people wear Wu Tang shirts"

Have you been to a Wu Tang concert Osi? I`m pretty sure white hipsters/bro`s/whatever comprise over 75% of Wu Tang`s fanbase. There`s just more of us than black people.

@MeGrendel, actually DingDingDong is right. The drug war had continued not because it is effective, but because it is profitable. Without that incentive, cops wouldn`t do this.

DingDingDong-"This is why the drug war needs to end"

Kinda wierd leap of logic there (as in, `no` logic).

Gerry1of1-"That`s called a "normal reaction" where i come from."

I`ve never had such a reaction around a cop, and I`ve had many times where I was happy to see the cop.

THIS cop, on the other hand, is an asswipe.

25 minutes? K-9 search? This is a BAD COP. What an a-hole, I hope he loses his job and get arrested for this.
Oh, he`s lkost his job and been arrested before? BAD COP!

Municipalities can keep money and property that is suspected of being involved in illegal drug activity whither or not the suspect is charged. Officers have a lot of motive to circumvent the civil rights of citizens. This happens alot in border states like Texas.

Hmmm. I see what the problem was. He saw the Wu Tang shirt.

Only black people wear Wu Tang shirts, therefore he was just doing his job, pulling over black people to make sure they`re not committing any crimes.

He has a gun and authority to use it, arrest, detain, and in many other ways mess up your life.

I`d be freakin nervous too. That`s called a "normal reaction" where i come from.

So now your crappy cops are also psychologists? They decided to do a search cause they think the passenger was "nervous". And who the hell is this officier? The son of Freud?
Now conservatives of this site tell me again you don`t want to spend money on pubblic healt care while for you is perfectly ok to waste your money for the poo police you have.

Nazi Germany? Seriously...being detained for 20 minutes is on par with someone kicking down your door and removing your family at gun point because of your religion.
Get a grip, he wasn`t charged, he wasn`t assaulted, and although unlikely maybe the stupid dog actually gave a false positive. Yes his rights were infringed on...slightly.

This is exactly what our country is coming to. A place like Nazi Germany where citizens have no rights and the government and their cronies can do what they like. This will continue until people wake up and start defending their constitutional rights in large numbers..

I`d wager good money he was after his own fix. He profiled the guy, ran his plates, and hoped he could confiscate a small fix and let the driver go on his way.
Although the whiny tone at the end made me annoyed. Boohoo it was my birthday and it was cold.

The officer didn`t plant anything, and he let you go.

Good video. This is why the drug war needs to end, this is ridiculous, the amount of effort and rights violations for marijuana laws. And this cop should be fired immediately. Also, the money seized from searches and from fines should not directly benefit the police, there`s too much incentive to fabricate violations. Seems so clear to me...

What? Is he saying a police officer broke the rules, lied, and violated the rights of a citizen he is sworn to protect?

No way. Faked! Couldn`t possibly happen.

Oh, and happy birthday.
