I was watching an episode of COPS last week. The cop pulled this guy over for having a headlight out. The cop asks the man, "do you mind if we search your vehicle?"
The man says, "Sure. That's fine".
The cop finds drugs and a gun in the man's car! When are people going to wake up and realize that if a cop asks you if he can search your vehicle you can say "NO!!!"
We are Americans. We have rights. Granted, the cop could have gotten a search warrant but at 2AM on a week night it's going to be hard to find a judge that will issue one!
If I was that criminal I would have said "no". Then I would have gotten my ticket for the headlight and been on my merry way home with my drugs and my gun! Not off to prison for 20 years!
