Nice to see that he set the whole thing up so that he could get youtube famous! and it seem to have worked.
It is pretty simple, I'm not a cop but if you act suspicious around me I`m going to treat you with suspicion. I stopped coming to this site because most of the commenters are just plain retarded, your the same bunch of dippoos who are screaming for more gun control, but i shouldn`t have to roll my window down at a sobriety check point.
I seem to remember way back when I was first getting me license, one of the first things I was told is that driving on publicly maintained roads was a privilege not right, and because there so many asshats out there who can`t fallow a few simple rules like.
1) Have a valid license. 2) Have valid registration and insurance. 3) Don`t drive impaired. we have to have check points in the hopes that we can get a few of them off of the road. There is a time and a place to fight "the man" i don`t believe t

I'm a little curious about some of you folks reactions to this.
It it not wrong to know your rights, and exercise your rights. In fact it is your duty as a citizen to uphold your rights. If the constitution says you cannot be subject to unreasonable search and seizure then you cannot be subjected to it, plain and simple.
I cannot see why the driver is being vilified for insisting that the police adhere to his rights. Why would you give them up? Men and women have fought and died to insure that you are protected from abuse of authority.
The officer could have done his job properly speaking through opening in the window. Can anyone honestly say they believe that the situation would have transpired in exactly the same way if he had given up his rights and complied with the officer`s demands? The actions of the police were punitive and an abuse of power.

I'm appalled at the ignorant comments here on IAB. Most people don`t know their rights and/or give them away so freely. If I`m ever stopped at a checkpoint, I`ll do the same as this guy. It`s my duty to uphold my rights. If everyone did, we wouldn`t have these problems. You are not required (without suspicion of a crime/violation) to: -roll down your window all the way -pull over -get out -give your age -give your license -consent to search
They wouldn`t even answer his question if he was being detained or not. That`s bullpoo. Also, the root of the problem is this failed drug war. It should be stopped.
