Do the police get to write laws regarding citizen behavior? Don't these things need to be voted on by elected officials? Who signed this law into effect?

You want worse? Recently, we were driving into the area, and saw signs on the road, along with flashing lights on them, stating that there would be random searches of vehicles for, get this, weapons and cash! In Kansas, it is legal to carry a gun in your car with no permit, and there is no handgun registration. So, they planned to randomly search vehicles for weapons under what justification??? And cash?!?!? What amount of cash would be considered "too much", I wonder? We didn't see any cars in this case, as this had apparently already been shut down (thought the flashing lights were still a serious distraction to traffic). If we had, there could have been a real issue, as I tend to carry a bit of cash. That's how our oldest pays his share of expenses from his job/ He cashes his check and hands me cash each week. So, I'd be considered a criminal in such a stop. There are times we carry a gun as well, if we plan to be out late, for self defense if needed. Double crime there!!! No actual law broken, but apparently that doesn't matter now in Topeka! Now, you have to raise your hands in a traffic stop? Do they plan to post signs on every road into town warning people of this fascist move, or will tourists simply be shot?
All this after seeing weird signs on the interstate going west that would, if lights on DROP DOWN BARRIERS were flashing, divert ALL traffic, ONE WAY ONLY, off the interstate, and after some very suspicious road projects. I am talking places with some sort of "construction" moving rock and debris up from underground, in an area where literally NOTHING visible was every built, save a small building big enough for an elevator, and a nice large ventilation pipe! That, plus a large bridge over a small highway, that goes basically nowhere. What it's claimed it is for, it doesn't line up with, and where it actually is, there seems to be next to nothing out there. Makes you wonder. Way past time to move, which is coming soon,a nd I can't wait!!

Wait! Wait! Wait! The cops finally take it under advisement what all the protestors have been screaming, "HANDS UP DON"T SHOOT!" and they decide that it will be their official position - you put your hands up so we know we won't have trouble ... and now no one is happy with that, either?
Oh the irony ... it burns.
