Mildly interesting, but for the fact that this man’s wife evidently admits to marijuana use by her husband in comments she may have posted online at the above link and helpfully tells the officer about the “bong” in the car later in the video.   Oops!

The interesting part is the comments to that article, where we see how divisive these issues can be.  Looks like that arm-twist hurt too!

At crossings, not checkpoints, they do not need your consent to search you or your car.

My two cents:  Expanding government power is part of a trend and when that happens and it lessens our constitutional rights, that’s bad.  Not sure I would donate to Herbert’s crowd-fund though.  Nope.
