Its unfortunate that the lady did not know her rights well enough to know she did not have to answer any of the questions at all. The Sheriffs had no
probable cause to bother this person according to the video as presented.
She should have just repeated "am I under arrest, no - then I'll be on my way, have a nice day" at which point she should have walked away.
In the video it appears that the Sheriff started rifleing through her items without any request to do so and only stopped after repeated non-consent
by the lady.
4th amendment - whats that anymore.
Others have posed such ideas as search in area, drug activety etc. etc. , ludicrous was someone saying because she declared a legal knife that gives
Sheriff right of search - I beg to differ when the stop was illegal on their part from the get go.
Supposing there was some probable cause prior to video start indicating possible criminal activety then how does one have any perception of danger
percieved by lone officer approaching non-chalantly up to a possible suspect uncovered by another officer - sorry guys just that one fact alone says
this was an outright mission of citizen harrassment because they could.
