stuckatwork- The wonderful world of the Terry Doctrine!!! This is an exception to the 4th Amendment that allows officers to stop a person for a reasonable amount of time when they have "reasonable suspicion that crime is afoot". Also it allows them to conduct a pat down search "for the officer's safety". Pretty cool huh!?
Medicated One- Tell us why again that the powder posed a "public safety" problem? Also, justify why booby trapping is an indication of insanity. If you speak, you must back up your words.
