The real shame is that "Freedom Fighter" brings up a good point only to bury it under an avalanche of unsubstantiated claims. Why should we be forced to submit to a search when we aren't even accused of doing anything wrong?
...stepping up to the soapbox
This same kind of thing also happens on a daily basis at checkpoints like the one on the I-5 between San Clemente and Oceanside. People are stopped and thier cars searched based solely on how they look or the car they are driving. Stopping illegal immigration, drug traffic, and terrorism are all noble causes, but not at the cost of my freedom. By the same token, protecting our state resources and ensuring thier continued viability is noble, but I resent any gun-toting, jack-booted thug stopping me without having even the slightest cause to suspect me of a crime.
If there's any truth to "Freedom Fighter's" courtroom victories, I'd like to hear about it.
