Basic Weapons Search
    #4085796 - 04/22/05 07:02 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

When a cop pulls you over and pats you down, and feels something that could be a baggie of drugs, are you required by law to pull it out and show it? Hence it's a weapons search, a soft squeazable bag would not constitute for one, would it?

You're talking about a Terry search, which is merely a search for weapons to ensure an officers safety. In theory and according to the law, if a cop finds drugs on you while patting you down for weapons he can use that against you because he was merely looking for weapons, not drugs. However, in real life the cop could feel that and then say he smells pot or something and they search you with probably cause and find your weed and bust you. So, are you required by law, no, but does that matter, no a cop will do whatever he wants. It's best to stash he drugs in your car somewhere that is out of plain sight and not in an obvious place (like glove box, or under the seat) and refuse to let him search your car if he asks.

Always refuse a searchh.
If they give you the patdown, and find a bag or pipe, they tend to ask what it is.
respond:" I don't know, but it's not a weapon"
If they do seaarch you, state, "I object to this search" but comply.

ALWAYS REFUSE A SEARCH. IT IS YOUR RIGHT.

Well you were right about everything, except from my understanding of the law and Supreme Court rulings, during a Terry pat, technically the officer can ONLY search for weapons. He cannot legally take out anything unless it feels like a weapon. A plastic baggie should not feel like a weapon, but since it might feel like a bag, you can bet the cop will ask you what it is. Don't worry, and don't tell him anything. If you have no highly-plausible excuse, then just remain silent, it is your right to do so. Some officers are less inclined to go by the books however, and will just empty out your pockets as he pleases, and if he finds drugs, then you're going to get arrested. If you do, REMAIN SILENT! Your lawyer should be able to get you off because of unreasonable search and seizure.

I think I should add that if an officer empties your pockets or asks you to empty them then tell the officer that you do not authorize any search of your person or property. State this repeatedly, but if an officer orders you to comply then comply. Many police officers carry wirless mics on them that record traffic (or other) stops. This always helps a judge decide in court.

On a side note, I know this doesn't have to do with weapons but...

In the state of Pennsylvania, you go out, have a few drinks, get behind the wheel of your car. You're not drunk but you've had say... 2 beers.

Cop pulls you over and wants to give you a breathilizer test... you take it, and the results aren't accurate.

The cop then says, "Well I want to take you back to the station and draw blood"..

If you refuse to let the cop do this, your drivers license will be taken away on the spot and you'll loose your license for a full year.

This ALMOST happened to a very close friend of mine. He allowed the cops to draw blood becasue for his job he absolutely needs to drive.

My point is... before you comply or deny, know all of the repercussions.

it's basically the law everywhere if you refuse any part of the sobriety test you loose your license.

what you can do..... if you've really only had 2 drinks, is tell the cop you just had two drinks, and you wish to wait a moment to blow again.

This would apply to you if you came strait from dinner and you had a sip of your drink directly before you drove, this would make the Breathalyzer register a high score.
But you're obviously not impaired, so if you're a polite the cop will be cool about it. usually.

and if you do get taken in you can request another test, to show that the first test was inaccurate.


if they take blood you can be fucked because they can test for drugs, possibly complicating the issue.



and quite frankly,

denying a search is terrible advice!!!!

because we all know cops will search you anyways, and usually they don't ask in the first place.

And in my experience acting like you can deny them things or like you know laws they don't is a sure fire way to get a taste of back end of a mag-light.

i seen first hand cops beat down women like they were men, because they acted in a disrespectful " I KNOW MY RIGHTS " kinda way. Then BASH!!

It's good to act savvy but not arrogant.

And,
put soft squeezable bags in your crotch,
hard to tell it from other soft squeezable bags.

no. not true. the cop is testing your knowledge. if he sees that you are going to let him search you, he will. if you consent to the search you fucked yourself.

Fuck no man, one thing is knowing your rights, another thing is being a smartass. You can say the same thing a whole new way without making the cop feel like you're the one in authority. As long as the cop thinks he's the one in control, it's unlikely that he'll try to bust you. Case in point:

"No officer, I do not consent any searches"
"Im sorry sir, My girlfiend is having her period and is all out of tampons, thats why I was speeding. She's bleeding all over the place."

Same thing said, only the latter would much more likely get you off the hook and get the dogs called on.

fact: they are passing laws that stipulate that if pulled over FOR ANY REASON ones car can be searched with a drug dog. period.

and I've never been asked before my right were violated.

consent isn't important at all.

cops do shit without consent every second!!
just cause you know your being fucked doesn't mean anything.


you guy's are talking about the factual law, while I'm talking about what will actually happen.

maybe the cops in your area are more understanding of personal freedoms and rights.

Thats called an illegal search and seizure.

Drug dogs can be called down upon probable cause, this isnt anything new.

Cops aren't always right, nor does the judge always rule in favour of, by giving consent you are giving up all your rights, by saying no to a search you may be saving your entire future.

your not grasping the shittieness of this NEW( within the last year )

if you get pulled over, cracked windshield, busted tail lamp, speeding, doing anything worthy of a stop, they can instigate a entire search, not just a general look. drug dogs, detaining you, the works.

and before they did need probable cause to instigate the full search; funny smell, glassy eyes, erratic stories, more realistic PC.


This NEW law has changed the way people work, and people have had to rethink their travel.


and now that i think back i have been patted down before in a general weapon search, and i had a pocket knife, 2.5 inch blade or so, and i told the cop ," that's my knife." and he didn't care, because i wasn't acting all crazy.

just my 2

I disagree. "I'm sorry sir, but I am already late for a staff meeting and would hate to loose my job on top of this speeding ticket."

> What's this new law you keep talking about?

It isn't a law, but a ruling by the supreme court. Basically, they said that a cop can use a dog trained to detect illegal drugs to search a car even though there is no probable cause that any crime has been commited. This isn't really anything new... cops have always been making illegal searches... but now they have "permission" to ignore the constitution and do what they have always been doing anyway.
