The Driver Reportedly Consented to a Search

By Christopher Wilde

I say bullshit.  I don't believe someone trafficking in 200 pounds of marijuana is going to consent to a search of their mini-van, as is reported by KUTV News.    Pictures of the van shows the driver has invested in a heavy duty stereo system.

I'm torn between getting drugs off the street and what appears to be a gross violation of civil rights. 

Drug traffickers let me make a suggestions.  Spend just a little money to place some hidden cameras in your vehicles.  Then when the Utah Highway Patrol pulls you over and "allegedly" get's your consent to search your vehicle, not only will your drug case get thrown out, so will all the drug cases they've ever worked on.

"civil liberties"... not "civil rights." Search and seizure laws fall under liberties. :-)
