Yeah, it’s hardly unusual to have a car in one person’s name that is driven almost exclusively by another person. It’s not the same situation. thought is that the amendment was written before modern technology, so how do Assume the following: You are a licensed driver, age 17. The underlying premise behind this practice in Kansas is that the following copper makes the assumption that the owner of the vehicle is a lawbreaker.
It’s stressful and a waste of time and could lead to all kinds of unpleasantness if the cop decides to go that way.
During my internship with the Boone PD I had the opportunity to see and learn how a law enforcement agency operates. Should the evidence from that search have been allowed to be the basis for a search warrant that resulted in Greenwood's conviction?
If the computer is wrong, oh well. Just a bit over 0.8 I would think. You know, ignoring the fact that the cop knows who owns the car, which absolutely IS relevant information. This idjit is going to cause the Supremes to give the gov’t a big win, and carve out a huge exception to the 4th Amendment that could easily go the other way with a more deserving case. Clearly this method of creating Probable Cause is wrong…a lot. The case is Kansas v. Glover. Cop stops you for speeding on interstate.
This is the underlying problem that needs to be fixed. With your version of “probable cause”, the police can just walk into a mosque and arrest everyone, since, statistically, Muslims are terrorists. We lost the protection of a warrant a loooooooong time ago with vehicles.

Again, constitutional violations abound when a cop doesn’t know something.
As a general proposition I’ll agree with that.
Maybe like the Concurring Opinion in the case Illinois v. Perkins some jurisdiction (in this instance Florida) will be influenced by the dissent and it will become part of that State’s case law (the Florida Case is Voltaire v. State (1997)), but for now the rule stands that a vehicle within the curtilage is covered under the Curtilage Rule and not the Vehicle Exception. The 4th Amendment protects our general presumption regarding our expectations of both privacy and autonomy regarding our own bodies.

What exactly do you think “probable” cause is about, if not probability and statistics? Doesn’t seem that unreasonable to assume the owner is the driver.
Probable Cause: n. sufficient reason based upon known facts to believe a crime has been committed or that certain property is connected with a crime.
Right? No necessarily. Although, officers have the I considered myself well educated, but it wasn’t until I started reading on my own that I really grasped the problem with General Warrants and the Writs of Assistance. True, I was being far too generous with the term “criminal”. body cameras?
Katz was subsequently convicted of eight counts of transmitting wagering information by telephone-in other words, gambling. but statistics are at the heart of ‘probable cause’.

The cops in my town do that routinely.
