    These cops get lucky they stop people for minor traffic infractions

    Tango blast isnt recognized as an actual street gang due to the fact that there is no hierarchy to it. It's also only represented in prison/jail and doesnt mean anything outside of the pen.

    Easy stop. Just cooperate. Save your "rights" thing for a rainy day. Yes, he was polite and honest. I have more respect for him than those in the usual dramatic stops.

    Honestly asking, why did the cop take the dude out the car when he was not driving and this was just a routine stop? Is that illegal? And then he took pictures of his tats and stuff. Could the dude have refused all of this and went home just fine? This just looked fishy to me.

    • Blake Killion
      Blake Killion 5 days ago

      Playyvh why would he take pictures and document that he is a gang member, so they can discriminate him if he ever runs into law enforcement again, even if he calls the police, they will be thinking, oh this is a violent gang member, for the rest of his life he will be watched by the police, even after admitting to not be in the gang anymore

    Passenger of car isn't legally required to provide name or identification. Nor are they required by law to pose for a photo shoot.

    Nice civilian, good police officer. I like seeing stuff like this. Honesty, and some trust. The cop could have pressed him more, or trying to make up BS like other cops to get a dog there and try to search. But no, he ran his name and let them on their way.

    Never ID yourself in the passenger seat. The US Supreme Court has ruled that you do not have to. People need to learn their rights...

    It's literally this easy to not get searched or escalate a traffic stop yet so many idiots get caught with stuff simply because they act like idiots.

    I don't know mannn... She was driving so why card him a passenger? Tattoos? Cop wasn't aggressive but I don't think thats legal. I guess its different in every state. I'm just saying if we are free, we got rights. Just saying.

    • Desert Hugh Freeman

      You got to give me more then that. I don’t think it is.

    • NerdBash2020
      NerdBash2020 14 days ago

      Desert Hugh Freeman it is legal. On a traffic stop he can ask for identification of anyone in the vehicle. He clearly saw tats affiliated with a gang. This goes for every state
