You have zero idea how the justice system works. Leaving a suspected "drug house" is not probable cause for a search nor stop. Get your facts down before posting such rubbish.

Sounds like a constitutional tort to me.

Can you say "I smell something that stinks in this situation"? The story does not add up. Some details must be missing or swept under the rug. When I came across this story I thought "Really!?" And now the chief is 'stepping down'????

The X-Chief, Mr. Bailey, is caught up in so much crap that he knew it was eventually going to come out. And it will........ ;)
