    Interesting local story: http://lancasteronline.com/news/loca...7a43b2370.html

    Defense attorney Alan Goldberg filed a motion that the traffic stop was unconstitutional and subsequent seizure of drugs was illegal.
    Cullen agreed in his recent opinion and order. The charge was dropped last week.
    Cullen wrote that Jackson was stopped along the turnpike in Bowmansville for well over an hour. Hope continued to ask investigative questions even after the stop was over, Cullen wrote.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    If the trooper didn't return his things first, then Lopez would apply and the questions would need to be suppressed.

    Didn't anyone know this was really a seminar on how to act if you were black? It was not set up for everyone. The presenter actually said to announce the fact that you had a LTCF and were armed.


    I suppose it wasn't PC to announce it was for blacks. But being sponsored by the NAACP might have been a clue.

    Would have been better to have an attorney present this info. Maybe POFOA
    should get on this someday?
