    Had to go to baptist hospital at 2:00 am because of a staph infection. Drove back home around 4:00 am down E street and a cop pulls me over for a broken tag light. He proceeds to give me the third degree and makes me empty out my car. He realizes he’s wasting his time (and mine) and tells me to shove off. He didn’t care less about the tag light.

    I’m not advocating for criminals here, I’m advocating for calling things as they are- cops don’t care about broken tag lights. It’s just an excuse to perform a search of your property.

    Generally, the ones complaining about searches are the ones who have something to hide. Go figure. Maybe perhaps if the alleged perps tag light was working, it would not have caught the eye of the law. But again I say, darkness tends to hide from light.

    John Doe “Sure, let’s just let our right to refuse illegal search and seizure erode away. I could care less about the spice guy, but I don’t want cops rummaging through my car because they “think” I’m a criminal. I have better things to do than waste my time being harassed by the cops.”

    That’s just what a criminal would think. The cops arent going to waste their time for those who arent carrying drugs or are known to carry drugs or illegal substances. For you it seems it’s not about losing your rights but getting caught doing the same thing this guy was busted doing. It boils down to this…dont be a terd and you wont be treated like one.

    Why spice, isnt medical weed legal in florida ? Such a strange thing with marijuana easily available now that people still want to smoke this random chemical fake weed from china

    Brandon, you’ve got babies man. You’ve got kids. Is this the life you want them to live? Is this how you want them to see you? You’ve got to do better.

    Brandon Joshua Mathis pull your head out of your keister, quit poisoning yourself, and get on with your life in a responsible way. This kind of life also hurts the ones who love you, and you are too young to be wasting your life this way…

    @ John Doe: Never Mind the illegal substance they found. Never Mind the non functional tag light (motor vehicle violation) Poor little guy!

    no tag light = excuse for cops to search your car. they could care less about the light.

    Always make sure that Tag Lite is working.

    Where is spice coming from nowadays? It used to be legal to sell before we realized how highly addictive this junk is.
    I recall years ago when a North Escambia convenience store owner was killed by a young guy who was after “spice” he sold in his store. Most comments at that time mourned this nice man who sold potpourri and was only trying to make a living.
