Re: Traffic Stop Turned Into a Canine, Drug Search
I realize it is difficult for you to have a non-cop perspective sometimes because you are a cop but if a cop comes up, with a dog, and opens the door, most people are not going to go "get the Hell out of my car". They either fear or respect the police and do not object because of that. That doesn't mean they are willingly giving permission to the search.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
