Your body does, but not your speech. Bad call, judge.

On the video you can see the officer first took several looks under the stall then got a stool to look over it.

I agree, but I dont mind giving the 4th amendment a lot of latitude either.

Police Bathroom Probing

I prefer Indian Chief bathroom probing.

The officer found him in the bathroom and said he overheard Boykin on the phone saying, "He's going to arrest me for DWI."

Absent the phone conversation the window tint were probable cause for an interview and the evident alcohol on the breath would have likely led to the sobriety test and failed breathalyzer.

I agree. It's not as if the police officer stopped to use the bathroom and then overheard the conversation, although I'm not so sure that wouldn't be probably cause either.

In this particular case, it was convenient that there was a stool handy, but please remember to flush anyway.

The police report from that night said the officer wanted to talk to Boykin about his car's dark windows.

So they followed him into the bathroom and did what now?

basemetal: The dude better sell that car, it's marked.


This, my daughter had to sell her car several years ago after she made a local police department IWebster, TX) look bad in Court. She was getting pulled over at least once a week and harassed. The original charges stemmed from her getting pulled over and spurning a cop when he tried to flirt with her. He pulled her over three weeks later and arrested her for having rolling papers in her car that a passenger threw on the floorboard.

They evidently thought we were stupid enough not to look up the law on the books to see that papers werent an arrestable offense if theres no dope around.

I even got pulled over twice while driving it as well.

Since we used to have very strict window tint laws (none on driver's and front passenger's side windows) in IL, some people had to get waivers because they were sensitive to sunlight. I'm not sure if those people were vampires or not.

Came in to say something similar. If I DO have a right to privacy on the crapper, that's one right upon which no one with working ears and olfactory receptors will want to infringe.

hell that likely would have allowed the officer to use the overheard conversation.

If a cop stood on a stool and looked over the top of the stall at me taking a crap I would have said "See anything you like piggy?" and waved my wiener at him.

uh oh. those guys are bastards and will completely make up what they have to to justify their actions. tread softly.

Assholes busted into my hotel rm (for my safety) "because the door was wide open". The farking door closes automatically, it just didnt close all the way cause a sock was in the way. The cops busted in, searched the rm, questioned me about my meds (hypertension) and tried to get me to say I hired a farking hooker.

I thought about demonstrating why they were full of shiat, but you know what? here in the farking Houston area, the police literally kill people every day. It doesn't matter if the guy is armed...if he just looks like he is that seems to be sufficient. So I shut the hell up and let em finish.

"The 4th Amendment protects all citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures,"

unless of course, you want to get on a plane, walk down a NYC street while not white and well dressed, walk through a NYC subway with a backpack, or leave a wal mart.

They stop that shiat if you keep a little notebook in your car and when he asks for your info say. Absolutely. Also can i have your reason for pulling me over and badge number please? Write it in the notebook and file a suit against the cops for harrassment.

After which you would have been arrested for solicitation or indecent exposure.

I don't get why the cop had to look under and over the stall walls/door. It's not like the guy is going to leave without being seen.

Well, if you're going to hire a hooker, that is the best kind.

How is standing on a piece of shiat going to enable a cop to see over the stall?

BizarreMan: I don't get why the cop had to look under and over the stall walls/door. It's not like the guy is going to leave without being seen.


This. After confirming that there were no other exits from the room, the cop should have simply waited for the guy to come out.

That said, this is the only problem I find with the officer's conduct here.

It does help knowing you have some privacy in the john, helps loosen up the sphincter muscle.

That's a great idea on paper, until the cop takes your notebook, pulls you out of the car and beats you into a coma for resisting arrest.

Some people do have sensitivity to bright sunlight. Mine used to be so bad that my eyes would get watery in normal sunlight with dark sunglasses on. Never bothered with the tint-waiver, though, since you'd still get pulled over by every bored cop you drive by.

And at the beginning of the day, too. I have no idea why I picked that idiom.
