My wife's friend just got pulled over. A mile across the border she got pulled over by a dick cop. She asked why he pulled her over and he was like, uh speeding, and she said, really how fast was I going? (She had cruise set) and he said well you know why I pulled you over and she was like no why. Well do you have any drugs in the car? And she was like no. He said then can I search? She said yea as soon as you get a warrant.
