How is this not an illegal search and seizure? Where is due process? Where do I apply for a job with the secret police?
Sorry for you

Think with your head and not your emotions.... any time someone reads a post like yours they immediately think, "Well, you must have some reason to not want the police to stop you!" Remember, if you aren't doing anything wrong, it shouldn't bother you! The safety of our communities and citizens is worth a couple of minutes out of your day!

You make a very good point. Since only the guilty object to being searched, we can save a bunch of money on courts, trials, and lawyers. When we stop someone, just look for signs of displeasure, and convict them on the spot. Or give them a lie detector test: "Do you object to this?"
And if I can stop every car on the road, why can't I go door to door to look for marijuana? For unregistered firearms? For radical literature?
You are quite right, I have a reason not to want the police to stop me. I want to be the one doing the stopping. For others, maybe that fourth amendment stuff colonials fought the war with England over means something.
Now that that's passe', I could go beyond cars, making the house-to-house searches, stopping people on the sidewalks, and finding out who is a proper citizen. I'm all for tight government control, as long as I make sure I get to be the controller. There's a good living to be made searching peoples cars persons, and homes.
