My earlier analogy was weak, but it kind of applies a little……If you have a green light and you see a speeding bus coming, would you pull out in just because you had “the right of way”….?
I am just asking, are there any limits to our support, because I think this one may be getting close to that edge,,,,
Thanks, this is what I needed to hear today.
Your example of the right of way is a little weak too, because it is dependent upon bad action of the bus driver. I think the question you want answered is Bill's hypothetical of driving around with a dead hooker in your trunk, whether you would still be legally okay.
And I would say (and am sure you will think I am out of my mind) that if someone was pulled over driving around with a dead hooker in the trunk, (or 10 kilos of cocaine, or a duffle bag full of robbery loot.) that the legally configured semi-automatic rifle in plain view in the back seat is not searchable beyond conducting a 12031 loaded inspection and certainly not seizable absent evidence of any other crime.
