So they did this illegal activity to a federal officer and his wife. Did they get away with it? I'm confused...

Forfeiture laws are... well, insert some proper expletives here. Even without the rampant abuse that the South (and certain places all over the U.S.) is famous for, the properly enforced laws are a sham.

Ignoring the innocents, some poor folks with nothing fun in their lives but a baggie with some scraps of a weed can be humiliated, shaken down, threatened and robbed all with the full backing of the state behind them... despicable.

I hate bullies... bullies with official backing are far, far worse. Corruption is likely the most socially destabilizing thing there is... far worse than crime in general.

This should be on every news station. Get the word out about crooked cops and their highway robbery.

They use a sniffer.

They know what you have. Drive through Amarillo on I-40.

The sniff you then run a chase vehicle waiting for any traffic violation.

These drug task forces and their millions in toys have to be justified.

These are Super Cops, they smell through steel.

Most Cops are great people. Good and Bad in everything.

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?

Interesting you said Disney World, I was planning a vacation this year to Disney World. I have friends that live in Orlando, now I am going to cancel my trip.

I'll keep my money and stay home. With more of this information coming out over the internet, I can see many families will not travel, and hopefully this will cause a major impact in the tourist industries.

Perhaps corporate tourist industries and the revenue that many States rely on, might demand Congress to start making some changes and crack downs on corrupt policing on our highways.

This practice really needs to stop!! This federal police officer should bring this case all the way to the Supreme Court. His video shows their constitutional rights have been violated. They had absolutely no probable cause to search that vehicle. They also have the police report that shows these police officers tried to cover their tracks. Tearing up a dash board without a probable reason is also an unreasonable search.

It's the word of a police officer over the word of citizens that these two innocent people looked nervous. That alone gives police officers a reason to search a car? That's total B.S... who isn't nervous when they're pulled over by the police? They should be required to have a lot more evidence in sight rather than just the expression on peoples faces!

I guess this is where my white privilege is helpful. I have driven up from Florida many times without incident. I see the cops in the center area hidden in the turns. I drive a late model Mercedes with out of state plates and have yet to be harassed. The fact that I am white and driving an expensive car has everything to do with the fact that they have never bothered me in the half dozen times I have driven through there on my way someplace else I guess? Note to self, if you want to run drugs or drug money through Tennessee be white, and drive an expensive car and wear a nice suit. The cops will not bother a high priced whitey.

That brings up an interesting point.

Do they want to pull over a guy who might be more than happy spending $10k to do battle in court, possibly with enough lawyer power to roll some heads, rather than be jacked for $1,000? I know if I had the money available, I'd go through the trouble of time and expense to fight them. I'd also do everything in my power to make sure at least one of them went to prison, just to experience how safe the prisons are (and by "safe" I mean "rapey/stabby")

Personally, I have no problem with road trips with my wife and kids, because I know we don't look scary to the paranoid cops, and don't make a good target for lying cops against a family. Me solo or with another guy after midnight though? It's basically a neon "Kick Me" sign.

if this guy was ncis which is the only federal officer i know of to work marine or naval bases why didn't he call someone to get these turds off him and his wife i see 2 marine corp bases in that state i am sure the ncis guys there could have helped him out

Wasn't there a recent federal court ruling that a traffic stop couldn't call for a dog if one wasn't on scene at the time?

eta: right. Rodriguez v US. A cop cannot make you wait for a drug dog if you refuse a search. It's a violation of your fourth amendment rights. The guy would cream them in federal court.

lol... ouch!

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?

According to all the threads about guns people should be armed to the teeth to protect themselves against this kind of harrassment. Although clearly it would be totally ineffective in that situation.

As you have rightly pointed out folks like you and I in our relatively gun free countries with unarmed police "left wing" free for all health systems are living in a hellish country (sorry countries on opposite sides of the planet)

It's the ongoing ridiculous prohibition of Cannabis that enable these bastards and this kind of highway robbery.

Notice the part where they falsify the report saying their was 'marijuana debris' when there was none, to justify their bull# search and harrassment.

They only have the excuse to even try this kind of carry-on because of the idiotic Cannabis laws.

Change those and this kind of problem will no longer occur. These creeps will go off and find other ways to exploit and intimidate the public for profit.

Pulled over because his wife is Hispanic? How did he determine that? Ohhhh white cop, so of course! You know how white people are?

posted on Jan, 21 2016 @ 12:31 PM
It doesn't help that most cash has traces of drugs in it already.
These cops are nothing more than highway robbers in fancy pants with a badge.
Civil forfeiture laws must be repealed to stop this legalized gang activity.

Eta: At what point did we get "federal police"?.
There is no Constitutional basis for it.

The problem is that these cops are actually following the 'law'. Much the same as a Military Grunt getting told to shoot up a village or whatever. The good cops are the ones who go against and expose these ridiculous orders.

Nationalize or rather federalize the Police force in the states and then you have the worst corruption you can imagine, a tentacle of Evil serving the Global criminal banking elite.

"It's like Nazi Germany" Yeah that's a bit of a stretch-but it's no excuse for the cops behavior which is why your own dashboard cam can pay for itself.


And La Cosa Nostra is huge.

It's not as big as it used to be but Texas?

Florida? Definitely. California and New Orleans? possibly. but Texas? On the other hand it makes perfect sense. A large state would be the perfect place to house a Mafia FOB.

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.

Thanks for the inside look. In your opinion, how come 'good cops' don't whistle blow about it. It takes another off duty cop that was subjected to it or, like yourself, one in retirement to give us this yah hey its systemic and goes all the way up the ladder.

The cop that exposed this was off duty, from another branch of law enforcement and only appears to have gone public because he was exposed to the corruption on a personal level.

Don't know how many whistle blowers are out there exposing their own to the limelight.
