  •  Speaking of hand position... (2+ / 0-)

    ....EVERY time I'm pulled over (Often. Because it's a small town and the cops know of my activism on this and marijuana legalization.) I immediately roll down the window and put both bare hands outside the window in plain view of EVERYBODY. Makes for fewer, "misunderstandings." I keep them open and in plain sight. I ask for permission to retrieve anything. I don't not answer any questions put to me. EVER! And never, EVER, EVER give them permission to search your car without a search warrant stating what it is they are looking for.

    Even though this is an "open carry" state, I never have a weapon outside of the trunk with ammo seperated from the weapon and not readily accessible. (Or drive around with pot in the car.)

    They stopped threatening me years ago. They knew I was recording the stops.

    •  The warrant thing (0+ / 0-)

      is something I've been told to do after having my car searched a couple times for no reason.

      However, I've also been told that if they really want to, they can just impound your car till they get a warrant.

      •  They better have probable cause. (0+ / 0-)

        They are open to a civil lawsuit if they do that, as well as a judicial review.

        But in some areas of the country where the LEOs have set up their little 'fiefdoms', life can be more difficult with crooked judges working with the police.
