Could they legally search his car without a warrant when he refuses?
Yes, the government agents can search his car if they want to because they have superior numbers and firepower. 'Legal' is a term that doesn't mean anything in the real world.
The video doesn't make it clear, but I'm guessing the K-9 "officer" signaled that it smelled drugs. Police-trained dogs have a habit of alerting whenever their handlers want them to, oddly enough, and craven courts have upheld this as justification for a more intrusive search.I'd like to see cops punished severely for lying about people's right to record them while they're on duty. These particular nasty cops also deserve a pie (or some other substance) in the face.
'Legal' is a term that doesn't mean anything in the real world.'When I showed my wife your post, she said "justice belong only to those who have power."You guys know the real world.
Can the K-9 officer stand up to a cross-examination in a court of law?
If the office objects to being filmed, just ask him "You don't have anything to hide, do you?".
That is a great question to ask.
Why was he approached? Is it policy to harass uber drivers?
