    Probably not the best but I would bet it's the reaction of the vast majority of people (regardless of their "identity"). "Was I speeding? Did I come to a complete stop? Is a turn signal broken? Is my registration current? Do I look like someone who did something wrong?" I'd think that is the VAST VAST majority of humans.

    if you think every single time a police car is behind you that they are going to pull you over, then that is not fair.

    if you think every single time that you see the police that they are going to arrest you or shoot you, then that would be worse, and that is what this person did.


    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    you're right, it's NOT fair their actions make us feel that way

    He didn't EXPECT them to arrest him....but they still did.

    I bet my left nut there are far more examples of police being behind someone that do not stop them, so this perception of fear for police being behind someone is not justified. especially for anyone that knows they have done or are not doing anything wrong.

    as I've said the police were wrong for arresting him after it got to that point, but in the beginning there was nothing to justify Reese having the perception that he did about "the police" in general.

    these police, not the police.

    if you are okay with Reese judging the police in general, then would you be okay with anyone white judging anyone black in general?

    Carroll vs US is what has screwed us for nearly a century now. It said the 4th amendment doesn't apply to cars, then it was later extended to your person. We need to overturn that decision so that police need more than excuse to stop your car or you walking down the street (stop and frisk) and require you to submit to a search for any lame excuse they come up with. "I smelled pot" As long as the police have all of that power they will be scary and our society will be unjust.

    You know those aren’t the same thing right?

    If you need clarification, you can ask any child you encounter, they can clear it up for you

    not entirely right on the cars, but your overall point is correct. Whatever rules are in place, there are far too many safeguards to ensure that (1) cops doing a bad job will be excused, and (2) the fruits of their lousy and unconstitutional tactics are largely not excluded from evidence.

    What did I get wrong on the cars? I thought Carrol is where the lowered probable cause standard came from.
