Um- before I welcome you to the board, nbk, let me be sure I'm understanding you correctly. It sounds like you are saying that LEO in any situation they are not comfortable in, have the right to search an unoffending citizen? Surely I misunderstand? (I certainly have before.) I know you could not be suggesting wholesale abrogation of our Constitionally guaranteed 4th amendment right, could you? No. Sorry I even thought that was what you meant. I mean, if you had meant that, any Law officer, anywhere, could stop and search whoever was near him, "for his safety".

If I have somehow misunderstood what you meant by No need for a warrant or probable cause, let me welcome you to the board. If I have not misunderstood, you are not my friend, though I respect even enemies who are forthright.
