  •  we only have the word of the cop on the cigs (4+ / 0-)

    did the 2 women actually toss cigarette butts out the window? They may very well have done that but they seem to deny it...

    she may have been lying or the cop may have been lying.

    a great excuse to pull someone over in Texas... make what in a wet area with no fire hazard would be ignored most of the time into a handy reason to pull people over at will in an area at risk from wildfires. And power mad cops use every conceivable reason or no reason to pull people over...

    •  Those are the parts we don't know about, but (3+ / 0-)

      given the outcome, this seriously damages the credibility of the police officers in this case.

      I have called the authorities more than a few times out this way. We in Oklahoma area also in a severe drought. And some people are just inconsiderate morons. But that being said--I wouldn't advocate this as a response.
