It is probable cause if the dog detects something, not so probable if handler signals the dog to detect something. Do I believe your story, yes I do, I also believe the officer was just trying to prove a point. Do I believe it should be reported, yes I do, but I also believe nothing would happen and next time you might sit for 3 hours while a search is conducted.

if you feel that violated, call a lawyer. i often think the mods on this board act to quick and shut down a thread. in this case they have acted to slow. this is a gsd forum, not a cotus forum.

you and your friends cocky attitudes probably led to the officers action.

long story short cop asks to search the car. friend laughs and basically says **** no. you have no probable cause what so ever (his car is clean, no trash anywhere). cop says he'll call the k9. friend says go ahead. im actually excited as i want to see the dog and see what the dog does as i know for a fact there are no drugs in the car. not even residue because he would rather drink ice tea over a beer much less do drugs (same with me). the k9 very clearly indicated because the officer pointed and was speaking to it in a high pitched excited voice. the officer had the most SMUG look on his face. now i'm upset too. couple more officers come and they search the car (mostly front passenger side). they find nothing and eventually let us go. as we leave both me and my friend now have the most SMUG looks on our faces and wave bye to the officer with the hurt ego.

its not really about what happened to us. its about how can an officer search your car for any reason he chooses? all he has to do is get the dog to indicate and thats easy to do with crappy training. if i look at an officer wrong he has the right to search my car? if i piss him off he can search my car and take my cash (aka drug money)?? i can glare at an officer from my house and he has no right to search my house. yet he can do so to my car? my point is its so easy for a cop to abuse the use of a k9 to do whatever he wants.

This thread contains too many elements that mods and admins consider to be political in nature and thus against board rules. Thread is locked with some edits.
