Hey, slow down.
Is crazy because I just looked it up and apparently its illegal to have those air fresheners and even Rosary necklaces dangling from the rear view out here in Cali. But I see those every day, I used to drive with an freshener like that and the cops never pulled me over, and I see people here with Rosaries hanging from the rear view all the time.
People rarely get pulled over for that. This police man also comes off like he has some mental issues he is obsessive compulsive and probably wanted to plant some weed on him, I bet he smoked pot on the job and was nervous so he was going to set up some random black dude to take the fall. Good thing this brother was smart and even knew his rights they cannot search your car unless you allow them, he knew this guy might try to plant some shit the way he was obsessively asking him about weed even making the guy out to be a liar.
Cops always pull people over for hanging shit (air fresheners) off of their rear view mirror. It’s against the law. Has nothing at all to do with race.
If you are stupid enough to hang air fresheners from your rear view mirror then you deserve to be accused of smoking weed.
What’s most surprising to me is that Americans are still this stupid in 2019.
Look at this guy
Praise to that officer for serving and protecting his community from that heinous air freshener. He has earned this bootlicking today.
You post stupid shit. So you should be arrested for child porn.
That is exactly how fucking stupid you sound
If the officer was only worried about the air freshener, why did he conduct a field sobriety check? Why did he want to search the car?
In one narrow sense it matters (not to the cop, but to the viewers of the film) that the man was so respectful and cooperative. It prevents the officer from pretending as if he were keying in one some other characteristic. It effectively isolates race as the issue. The cop was pretty damn sure all black guys smoke marijuana, and he seemed eager to find or manufacture facts to support that conclusion. So it's the perfect stop. We can all agree. Fuck this racist cop, and let's all buy this upstanding citizen a beer.
Because people that are dumb enough to hang air fresheners from their rear view mirror are also stupid enough to drive while impaired by drugs. It’s low hanging fruit for the cop, who is just doing job, keeping the roads safe.
Yeah, I'm going to assume you are trolling. Helps me sleep better at night.
The hanging air freshener gives a cop a good reason to pull someone over. It can block out a blind spot and you may get t boned or head on collision.
I grew up in a mostly white city/town. It was well known that cops would pull over a car load of white kids with air fresheners hanging. And yes they would harass them about drugs, and many times they found them.
This black dude probably hung the tree in his car, set up video, waited til he got pulled over for it so he could cry like a baby.
I have seen this on the show live pd a lot. They usually just profile poorish/young people with cheaper messy beat vehicles, aren't clean cut, dressed bumish or if they look/sound like users.
But a clean cut guy in a 300 speaking clearly and polite. Ridiculous.
Cliffs? Don't currently have time to watch a 30 minute video.
Didn't watch the vid, or read the thread...
I'm always amazed that there's still LEOs out there getting pissy about weed. Yes, I understand it's still illegal just like it's illegal in some places in Ontario to go to the beach in a bikini. Just a fucking excuse to go on a fishing expedition methinks.
P.S. I don't toke.
How the fuck is it illegal to go to the beach in a bikini?
Old timey, unenforceable laws are still on the books in some places.
Take that comment with a grain of salt as that info is decades old and has probably been discarded. I also learned in social studies (early 90s in highschool) that if I was to be kicked out of Calgary I was entitled to a pack horse and a 6 shooter.
He would for sure make himself a target by filing a complaint.
He's already publicly complained on national television. No face blur. No attempt to hide his identity. Whatever he might have had to fear by filing an official complaint has become irrelevant.
You are right. I was thinking more generally that in my experience growing up in a small town filing police complaints would get you extra scrutiny.
Around here once we deny anything they call in K9Units from both Border Patrol and State Troopers,i mean lets not underestimate those savages leaving the reservations they can be carrying MOABs.lmao
