As a student enrolled in the Criminal Justice program and having have watched BOTH videos... im going to say what I say and hope ya listen if you dont
thats up to you.
You saw how old and fat the cop was, that suggests hes been doing the job for a long time. Legally cops are not allowed to profile people but
profiling is somewhere around 85% effective and accurate. Seasoned officers have a stronger intuition about events and therefore can see things that
most wouldnt see. The cops "had to let him go?" no. By letting him go he could have been a threat to society and public order, their job is to
protect that order... his combativeness and repetition of words shows that he was focused on one thing... proving that point to the camera, he rode up
safe to that checkpoint and has done it numerous times this time he brought along a camera... why is that do you think? my intuition tells me he was
hiding something, and no he wont just add that to his clip on the Video...
People clinging to their "constitutional rights" are a threat to society, it has been proven time and time again like with the KKK and other racist
and facism groups, they say they know their rights and that others can do nothing... alright so these guys are doing illegal acts and the constitution
protects them... yeah...no the Government doesn't let this fly so they created loopholes and one of the loopholes was that the Officers had the right
to check this mans car because he was posing a threat.. If he is whining and fussy to authoritative figures of the society he will be much more of a
threat to the average member of society.
So to conclude... They caught him in a lie when the cops DID catch him later on, their alert dog which is highly trained and yes dogs can smell some
amazing distinctions... he alerted them to HIS CAR... Either drugs or a bomb. Officers alert other to potential problems and they used a bit of
force on him(because they knew who he was), but when hes been combative in the past, and the alert dog goes off this time they can only assume the
worst... a bomb. So you tell me, if he had been a terrorist and let go free like the first time, would you have wanted him to go free? I wouldn't.
Most people are afraid of cops because some cops have abused their power. (have any of you ever done research on the type of people that elect and
try to be a cop??) It is a very small group and most of them have power control issues, a well educated cop poses less of a threat than a less
educated 1... thats statistically true and common sense wise true... SO b4 all of you say all cops have created a name for themselves, thats not true
at all, it proves that whoever says that is uneducated, ignorant and again not very bright (because you should know that there are good cops out
there). These guys risk their lives on a day to day basis, only see the negative in society daily and all of you want these guys to come up to you
and give you a pat on the back and tell you to have a good day... They are like parents they are their to protect you and wether you understand it or
not, they are doing a good job of it. Some are corrupt... most arent. Stop being paranoid, im getting tired of seeing that here on ATS.
For all of you who are ignorant of the truth i figured Id drop this to think about... Atleast 1 terroristic plot is foiled in the U.S. every day. In
economic troubled times it increases. Im glad the officers tried to get him to pull over... he showed fear and was guilty. The Preacher was
smuggling drugs and didnt want to get caught so he used typical fear mongering speech to get everyone riled up in support... its what preachers do
they know how to sucker people into their scheme.
