    I thought I remember seeing some case law on this subject, but cant locate it....

    What are the requirements on rolling your window down more than an inch or two on a stop? Do you have to?

    Could you articulate that you pulled them over for erratic driving ? any odd behavior, smell emanating from gap in window, furtive movement ? maybe OUI or exigent circumstances become an issue..

    You know we are issued automatic window openers that will open all windows from the outside?

    Let me guess the OP is going to drive around committing traffic violations and when the officer comes up to the window the " I know my rights" bullshit will start with the phone recording the entire encounter.

    No, niteowl. I am in disagreement with a friend and I thought there was recent case law on this subject.

    Whichever one of you was in possession of the bong at the time was correct.

    As normal, well-adjusted team players, it is difficult for us to even understand why someone would concern themselves with this minutia of a stop. Sure we know the end game here but as Sun Tzu has taught us, we must examine the types of individuals who debate these sort of non-issues by educating ourselves about who they really are so that we can fully understand the amount of butthurt we're dealing with. (Yes, I understand that the term, "butthurt" hasn't found its way into the DSM yet but they've changed everything else so why not!)
    Of course it's not your fault that their mommies left them in a wet diaper for too long but you're going to pay wither way, authority figure! I highly recommend the following resource for understanding and dealing with the passive aggressive professional victim mentality:

    Passive aggressive behaviors are often used to avoid the direct confrontation of short-term conflict, but in the long-term, these dynamics can be even more destructive than outright aggression.

    Which is why mastering the ability to passive aggressively mind f**k someone is an incredible skill to possess. Just so long as you use it for the greater good.

    Here is the scenario.....

    A co-worker and recent academy graduate thinks its OK not to roll window down more than an inch or two. I thought there was recent (2013+) case law supporting the opposite but I cant locate it.

    So I guess nobody remembers that particular case law? If you guys could stop assuming I am a troll looking to bust balls, I would appreciate it.

    Envision the window as flag, lower it only an inch or two and the cop will think your a butt head. Turn on the dome light and roll the window down and you can have a completely different encounter.
    If you find the link post it please.

    I do know this: In a rainstorm, the amount a drivers window is rolled down is directly proportional to the distance away the license, registration and full boat V are plastered to the outside of the windshield. For example: two inches or less usually means the above listed paperwork covers the inspection sticker.

    Exactly my point.
    It would be far more beneficial than "sensitivity training."

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    In the video from Russia, we couldn't understand what was being said, but I asked a buddy who said that things were going great until the driver mentioned he was a Ukrainian. That's when Officer Sovietsky went on the offensive and took his car. The cop later said, "We took that car like the Crimea."

    In related news, Ukrainians hate it when you refer to them as Russians. ;)

    He must be referring to the R/I academy. There's no way Southie is on the job with that thin skin.
    This nonsense all started with a passive aggressive turd out of FL who seeks out checkpoints with a note about his rights attached to his drivers side window. He's attention whoring in an effort to market his outdated copblock type book.
