"if the officer can demonstrate probable cause"-pffft. Can you say testalying.

Even more appalling but not surprising is that many judges want to or feel obligated to side with the police, some just worrying about that case ignoring the long term implications of their decision.

Pennsylvania and their judges-Cash for kids which did not happen in a vacuum. Many judges even at the national level unnecessarily feel obligated to back the police and/or pro police policy. Some are cop want to bes and live their lives vicariously through administering "justice". Others have biased working relationships with them. Judges should be prioritizing the law and constitution and not judicial activism. Judges shouldn't worry about their "relationship' with police. Nor should police worry about judges who uphold the law even if it favors a criminal. It's about a working relationship which is their job anyway and not personal opinion.

Many judges also back police state policy because they are part of that 'state' and want the police to protect them and their status with in the system.

Just as pointed out in the dissenting opinion a car search won't just be a visual search it could wind up being a digital search including the car's black box or digital technology. This is scary but not surprising in Pennsylvania-home of some of the most corrupt judges and politicians in the country.

Cash for kids tells you more than greed. It tells you the judges in Pennsylvania will back a police state for their own selfish interests and not the law.
