    I don't give a **** if I have done nothing wrong
    No police officer should have the right to search me unless they can prove I have done something wrong and especially not on the cause of race. Lazy policing right there.
    It's my right to privacy and I don't want the goddamn State taking it away from me and giving it to the untrustworthy. The police should NEVER have the right to stop and search unless they have some evidence for that individual doing something illegal or prove beyond reasonable doubt they had a cause.

    Your sentence indicates racial bias. ;-)

    Love ya', Caine. Couldn't help myself.
    Thanks for fixing me, I didn't mean for it to be a blanket statement of ALL minorities.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Yeah, there are specific cultural aspects that are dominant in some minority cultures that show a lack of respect for authority.

    Not all authorities.

    Many U.S. Asians are among the most respectful folks Ive ever dealt with.

    Can you has reading comprehension.

    Ive though I left out the "who" word as was pointed out to me by another poster... You failed to read anything about the cultural means.

    Cultural sometimes referring to old racist ass parents who beat this image of evil mean racist police (the ones they dealt with in the south during civil rights times) as the standard every day run of the mill cop. So thus created the false acusation of racism every time a white cop does something to a poor uneducated black person.

    Disrespect should also be earned.
    Not just given to someone because they are wearing a uniform.

    No doubt it is the same for any other individual.
    You should respect everyone until they give you a reason not to respect them. not the other way around.

    Its this type of attitude that get so many people in bigger trouble than they should be in.

    And they don't - and abuse of your right can get someone's ass in hot water.

    In my law class the other day I was the ONLY one arguing *for* that right to privacy/no-search. My teacher and many others were saying "denying a search when you're pulled over is almost like admitting your guilt - if you have nothing to hide then why say 'no'?" (I'm paraphrasing, of course)

    I came up with two points that no one ever considers - and both are very legitimate:

    #1: what if I had *legal but embarassing* personal items? (Maybe I just went to the lingere store and don't want some oily fingers on my brand new draws BEFORE my husband even gets to see them . . . Or maybe I'm moving across town and have personal videos and photos of my husband and myself boxed up in the trunk?)

    #2: a businessman, salesman, even a lawyer often carries *private* information with them - and it is essential to their actual line of work *not* to let anyone possibly see the content of files, etc. If you permit a police officer to search they are given permission to *search everything* - they can stand there and read someone's case-file if they want. And that is NOT acceptable.)
    - A lawyer, especially - always to and from court, etc. What if his client happens to be an officers ex-wife? You never know - but whatever is in his files is his *responsibility* to keep to himself.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
