I wonder how many people driving to Disney World or vacation in Florida have had their $1500 in cash confiscated, to later find out it will cost much more than that to travel back to Tennessee, hire a lawyer, and file a case?

Anyway, in Australia the police can only pull you over for 20 minutes without evidence of illegal activity, after 20 minutes you can just tell them to get stuffed and drive off.
How ironic that they can pull over a person (or a federal cop no less) in the US for over an hour... you know, being how it's the land of the free and all that... how do us inferior "socialists" countries end up having more rights then you guys? With our universal healthcare and draconian gun laws.
lol, who would've thought?
And La Cosa Nostra is huge.
There are departments throughout the country that rely on this kind of thing to raise funds, they usually have a representative from the legislature that will pass laws declaring those areas to be part of a "drug route corridor" or some other officious sounding name to gain Federal funds from the high numbers of arrests that stem from these fishing expeditions.
Another thing to look at is if the jails in these areas are "Private" then You will know it is indeed a tentacle from a much larger fund eating machine.
The good cops are the ones who go against and expose these ridiculous orders.
