Just Who's Calling the Shots?

I use a tint meter but I really don't give a rats a** about writing the violations. I like getting in the car and looking around (Plain View search of the interior while I'm testing all the windows). The heck with it on I 95 you aren't looking for tint its just the reason to get in the vehicle and find something better. Give them a warning and move on to the next one. Interdiction is a high volume game. Nothing says you gotta cite them for the violation.(Verbal Warning) If you find something write the citation and let them throw it out. Who cares about the traffic citation if you get cash or dope. Your PC for the stop is the illegal tint. I went to a lot of Interdiction schools and they all had one thing in common you gotta do a high volume of quick stops. (20 or more per day) If you think you got nothing move on. Don't waste your time writing tickets if you don't have to. Happy Hunting.
So says a supposed officer on a blog about illegal...
Speeding? No
Traffic accidents? No

Window tint.

Let me say that again...window tint.

Let's take a simplified walk through this man's logic -

Illegal drugs may be bad for your health.
They must be illegal
He must "hunt" for these drugs by finding a workaround on the U.S. Constitution, the supreme law of the land.

Make no mistake, this is exactly why these laws exist. Once an officer can stick his head in your car, he can claim just about anything he wants to justify further investigation. Indeed, this so called officer admits as much. "...really don't give a rats a** about writing the violations. I like getting in the car and looking around (Plain View search of the interior while I'm testing all the windows)."

Now compare that thought process with the following -
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Human beings love to come up with justifications as to why they don't have to obey the law. In our supposed wisdom, we chain point to point in an attempt to get around the clear dictates of the law.

We have reached a tipping point in the history of this country. We have spent all of our capital, we have abused our imagined moral authority, we have trod over the rights of countless individuals and we like to imagine that we are above The Law.

No, not the law of man as it was repeatedly referenced in the scriptures. The highest law, the supreme law, the law of God. Man in his 'infinite wisdom' comes up with all sorts of great reasons (at least they seem good at the time) as to why it is not only in our best interest, but the others best interest to oppress and cajole them.

However man is on borrowed time when he employs these tactics as often his captives will either rise up and overthrow him as the tyrant that he is or a loving God will ensure that the situation is taken care of.
