They don't understand their rights nor due process. The argument, "If you have nothing to hide" is easily countered with, "Then you don't mind being recorded, do you?"

A K-9 alert (real or trumped) gives police probable cause. People sometimes say yes to the search because they feel saying no is an admission that their ridin' dirty. Some even think their stuff won't be found. Surprise! Leave it at home. Carry in your car and you will get busted.

Just a minor afterthought, but being 100 miles from the boarder also puts us in a "constitution free zone", which is a bs claim that your constitutional rights are not guaranteed. Just have a camera ready when the situation arises. It may well upset the police, but the right to record police operating in their capacity is a constitutional right as well.

Celina Police Chief Dave Slusser has been put on paid administrative leave for allegations of job-related misconduct. An investigation is under way. A patrolman also has been put on paid leave for allegations of unusual behavior. Officials say the two cases are unrelated.

Hmmmmmmm

IMO the allegations of unusual behavior has got to be something bizarre or really bad. I think so because they worded it so generally. Could be just because its still being investigated but I doubt it. Its because its really bad and they don't want it out there

depending on where you live at in VW that might actually be socially acceptable. So you might be in the clear.

Even if you don't have drugs in the car nor do you use drugs they still say the dog hit on it. So in theory it really don't matter if you say yes or no either way they are going to search you and the car.

Yeah. That's why I said a trumped up hit by the dog. How would we know what a positive hit looks like?

I saw some more about it. It looks like the unusual behavior may have had something to do with gun shots.

I agree with that though I think some of that may depend on the officer themself. If they've got themselves convinced there's something in the car they are gonna likely search it anyways or give a reason of why they have probable cause. Do they put the owner in the cruiser while they run the dog thru?

Usually depends on how many officers make the stop as to how they handle the subjects in the vehicle. Sometimes they cuff "for my safety and yours."

You have the right to be present and with warrant, to provide keys instead of having your property destroyed. Conversely, if they find nothing, you also have the right to make a case out of it against them. Miranda rights are legal trickery.

A police officer usually has multiple weapons. The 'for your safety and mine' argument is weak at best. If they've already frisked for weapons, which they have a right to do, they are more of a danger than you are.
