Do they ask to search your vehicle when they do? It may be a new york thing or something, but here in Wisconsin, unless we have grounds to get into that vehicle or we our given consent, we can't search that vehicle at all. I am a Criminal Justice Major myself, and am a Police Officer in Wisconsin.

Dude **** that, I'd be filing a complaint and doing whatever I can... Yeah here in NY, I've heard all they need is probable cause. I've also been pulled over by an undercover drug cop, but I was speeding.. He let me off.

I'm starting training to go into NYPD Auxiliary in the end of march, I don't like cops myself- but what are ya gonna do?

Sucks.

Definitely file a complaint. When I was in my late teens I had a small town police department harass me for 6 months. Pulling me over for nothing giving me BS tickets it was a nightmare. I actually started to put my car in park atr stop signs and raise my fingers to count to three bc I got about 10 stop sign tickets even though I was stopping completely, its one of the easiest tickets to give without needing proff and very hard to beet in court. I finally filed a complaint and went to court on several of the tickets and beat them. OMG the looks I got from the cops when I was leaving the courthouse.

I would say file a complaint, but then you may end up like vette, getting pulled over for a lot of nothing and getting more worries. People are a**holes, just be glad you got to go home and they didn't try to plant anything.

True but if you file a complaint you will at least have a record. You should also note everytime they pull you over the xact date time and location. You do this and present it to the judge in court(where a suit and talk respectfull) and you will be surprised at the results. Yes it may get worse before it gets better but if you do it right they will leave you a lone. Cops don't want to loose money any more then you and unpaid suspension for harassment and/or a note on there record is not something they want.

They cannot search your car without consent without probable cause. It's a federal law not anything to do with the state. I'm Criminal Justice major for two years. That is actually illegal what he did if he had no probable cause unless you were doing something you shouldn't have been =] But I'm not really getting the story he pulled you over just because?
