(NW Florida Daily News)   Remember: If you've got stolen cash in your purse and a cop asks if he can search your purse to see if the stolen money is in there, you don't have to let him. Especially if you have marijuana and cocaine in it as well   (nwfdailynews.com) divider line 6

smallerGov: DNRTFA,

But can't they search you anyway if there is probable cause. I have no idea if this even applies to this story, but...don't they always find a way to 'presuade' you in to letting them look.


I once refused to open my trunk for a cop who was called to investigate me when one of the dudes I was with started panhandling outside Albertsons. As he plied me and I argued with my Jay Z defense (trunk is locked, Ill need to see a search warrant) his curiosity intensified 10x. He eventually cuffed and sat me on the curb until his buddy cop got there, and they cased the car until they saw a medical cannabis bottle in the trash on the floor. Probable cause found (no med license yet), the cops are practically drooling over the prospect of digging in my trunk, they gazed intently as they threw it open... To the sight of a nearly polished fifth. They were expecting a dead body or a few pounds or something, the disappointment was clearly evident on their faces. lol. Ive had other cops react similarly upon refusal.

I do not consent to a search officer.
Why, what are you trying to hide?
Nothing, I just decline to consent to a search. Whats the next step?
If you really have nothing to hide, why do you need to be so secretive? Etc.

I learned an important rule in my 20s as a lead foot who also used to hang around shady places. If you dont give them a reason to pull you over you wont have to deal with dickhead cops in the first place.


//no officer, I do not consent to a search

readbot42: I'm guessing if she said, "no" she would have been arrested anyway.

....So how long until the courts rule that denying a cop permission to search your person/car/purse/house/etc. without a search warrant is in and of itself probable cause for the cop to conduct the search sans warrant?

akula: Here's a good rule of thumb:

If the police ask, they don't have probable cause. If they have PC, they don't need to ask. Therefore, when they ask, decline. They may have a good idea that you done did the deed, but they need actual evidence. There's no need to volunteer it.


"Oh, you're declining the search? Better call in the drug sniffing dogs."

Here's something a lot of drug addicts don't know:

We can tell you're a drug addict. You usually have an idiotic look on your face and act strangely. You are automatically a suspect, even if no crime has occurred. And that's unreasonable.
