Prefer they go after people that aren't. People that are obeying the law don't need to see flashing lights in their mirror.
This is a poorly though out subjugation ploy.
Thank you officer, if I have a problem I'll_call_you.

Seems like a way to scrape up some "probable cause" for a vehicle search.

I would imagine since it was an unlawful stop, everything else after is moot.
If you just took a bong rip while driving, make sure to blow it in his face and ask,
Am I free to go?
Good faith exception
Such evidence is not generally admissible in court. For example, if a police officer conducted an unconstitutional (Fourth Amendment) search of a home and obtained a key to a train station locker, and evidence of a crime came from the locker, that evidence would most likely be excluded under the fruit of the poisonous tree legal doctrine. The discovery of a witness is not evidence in itself because the witness is attenuated by separate interviews, in-court testimony and his or her own statements.
There's always an exception. You may have to jump through some hoops, but it'll get you out of places where the constitution is still honored.
