Actually, you DO assume. You're entire argument assumes he didnt give consent, because the OP states no where that he didnt give consent.
This is why ATS sucks. Because people like you call a routine traffic stop a 'police state', and then belittle anyone who points out it isnt.
I'd report you, but it would be useless.
I'm with you there.
So many people bang on about a police state when police are simply doing what they are supposed to be doing, yet, when crimes are commited against
them, police are the best people on the planet when those same people running down officers and police in general need help from police because crimes
have been commited against them or family/friends.
All it is as far as i'm concerned, is people aspire to criminality and resent the fact police are there to stop them, even minor misdemeanors etc,
which is why police are required in society.
People seem to want to drive around unchallenged with broken headlights, bald tyres, speed, go through red lights, drive on wrong side of the road or
while under influence of drugs including Alcohol, carry weapons, etc, etc all of which can and do have fatal consequences and more often cause serious
injury as consequence of not being road legal or use weapons in road rage etc, because nearly everybody getting stopped with those faults or bad
driving or have weapons in vehicle or on person seems to think they should be able to drive problematically illegal or carry weapons and whine when
stopped and detected, get all anti police.
They should consider how long they'd stay alive if such people like police weren't there to prevent anarchy and chaos, how long they'd last in an
environ of uncontrolled crime, before they whinge about being arrested for their infractions!
Same here in England and sister states of the UK, as there in the USA, no police state as far as i'm concerned, in fact i'm going to a Crime Summit
held by police for our police borough every year, in March because i support police entirely, unequivocally, only exceptions being the odd rogue
officer when found and highlighted.
Yep, officer just doing his job, indeed, top man.
I cannot stand anti police sentiment, more than anything else apart from anti pagan sentiments, it winds me up completely. [Police forces are huge
organisations and i accept, bad apples are in most forces, but seniors do try hard to filter unsuitable officers, most police are good people just
doing their job.]
[Now this Does slightly diverge from main topic, so remove this if you must. It makes a valid point regards why this thread even exists though,
