Borrowing from David Codrea's meme on the "Only Ones" Files, I found this article from Casper, WY rather interesting. What got me thinking was this post from "Days of Our Trailers" poster Kaveman.
See, it's OK to violate someones rights, as long as it's for 'officer safety'. Threatening, or in this case, negotiating their way out of a bogus traffic stop by threatening the accused is wrong on a level that boggles the imagination. "Sure, you're free to go, but we'll keep our guns pointed at you while you leave...just in case."
