    Reason to never allow a traffic-stop search.

    Florida cop arrested for planting drugs during traffic-stop searches. I'm glad that got this one. Bury him under the jail.

    Violation of oath. Violation of civil liberties. Frustration of justice. False reporting. Lying. "Official" acts under the color of law. Civil damages for wanton infliction of pain/suffering/etc. Well, well.

    A good example of the potential utility of in-car recording, too. Perhaps that's what the intended interior camera is for on the new Tesla vehicles. Hmm ...

    What kind of jerk would do that?

    Messing up innocent citizens lives through use of state issued authority should get that guy a long prison term.

    Not all that unusal that it's done, just unusal it makes the news .

    And one of the main reasons I strongly oppose banning freed felons from gun ownership as in reality they may not have committed a crime at all
    to begin with.

    The affidavit describes it like a magician’s sleight of hand: “Without putting on the glove, Deputy Wester’s left hand dropped out of view, down toward the front of the driver’s seat, and after a brief pause, reappeared empty.”

    Shortly thereafter, Wester pulls a tiny plastic bag out of Odom’s purse: “Oh, Ms. Odom, how about this?” Wester asked, confronting Odom with the drugs.
    The former deputy is in it, up to his eyeballs, and it looks like he is going down. Prison will be a hard thing for him to adapt to, so I guess he will get solitary, to protect his life.
    That dolt has ruined his future, because he doesn't have one anymore.

    This guy needs life behind bars with no chance of parole. Also, he needs to be forced to wear a baby bonnet with a pacifier in his mouth and a diaper everyday in the prison compound. I am not against unusual punishment in situations like this.

    Isn't it normal and customary to vacate every single similar arrest such a person ever had a hand in? Since there's a good bet all similar cases are tainted in the same way.

    Unless there's a severe underlying crime associated with someone who got "nabbed" by this guy, where the only real reason he/she is stuck behind bars or stuck with the blemish on the record is the likely planting of evidence, I'd think it's worth vacating every such case and record. And if the DA wants to go after those people again, it can track down appropriate evidence this time around. One case at a time.

    Nope. If they have the money and inclination to go back to court it could be introduced in appeal or re-trial, but not many people can afford that. And the way the courts work, it's not always enough to overturn a conviction.

    Besides, with our current "prisons for profit" system, where corporations are paid per inmate, some politically connected fatcat would lose a little if innocents were released.

    Another of the reasons the USA now holds the proud title of "the world's jailer" with the largest prison population on earth.

    Guess what organizations lobby for mandatory sentencing guidelines?

    Did you ever notice how many crimes that used to be misdemeanors are now felonies? The prisons sell inmate labor for profit; they're always hurting for moderately-educated, non-violent, middle-class inmates in the 25-45 age group.

    Who uses inmate labor? Whole Foods, Wal-Mart, MacDonalds, Victoria's Secret, AT&T, Dell, Mary Kay, Starbucks, UPS, Motorola, Johnson&Johnson, Costco, Microsoft, PepsiCo... some of them don't do it now, but they didn't change until after it became a media liability.

    Prisoners! Even cheaper than illegals! And legal too! Such a deal!
