cops searching you

Postby narcoze on Sun Feb 17, 2008 12:29 pm

I was wondering if a cop could just go through say, your backpack if you're just out on the street even if they don't have proof of you having done anything?

If they have a reason to suspect that you got something you shouldn't have then yes.

Example 1: You're riding a bike around at night with a bag on your back and you get stopped by the fuzz. The copper says that they received a call saying that someone had seen you catching some tags. They now have reason to believe you might have graffiti tools in your bag therefore enabling them to search you.

Example 2: You're riding a bike around at night with a bag on your back and you get stopped by the fuzz. They stop you because it's late out and for the most part no one else is out so they ask you what you're still doing out. You make up some bullsh*t excuse and then he proceeds to lecture you about how "only cops, drunks and criminals are out at this time of night". "I know you don't fall under the first category and I hope you aren't one of the other two." He then tells you to go home and drives off. You didn't give the po-po any reason to assume you had anything in your bag that should concern him so he couldn't search you.

Cops LOVE searching you basic on the "just cuz" rule.

"why are you searching me?"
"just cuz" :D

if your in NYC they have the "not so random search" law that basicly means you can get searched for steping with your left foot first

1st, if ur not undr age, no cops cant search u unless they have u n cuffs. Thats only if ur walking, riding a bike, etc... if ur n a car, they can search u whether u consent 2 it or not...check out this site on how 2 deal wit cops...its got vids & basic laws, how 2 act on the street, @ the station, court...

So what if I'm riding my bike at night with a backpack, and a cop rolls up and says ''We had someone call in this neighborhood that there are some people out around here doing (insert any crime here besides graff), so I need to search you."

So he searches you and finds paint, caps, respirator you know the usual stuff. At that point can he turn his suspision into one of graffiti and start a topic about that? (Now that i think of it this question seems kind of dumb.. but just making sure)
A nice sunny day to go bombin'.

If he does suspect you of bombing, couldn't you deny it and get away since he has no proof it was you?
