Video of incident added: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAUCIBNA ... r_embedded You can hear the officer mention something about his "Georgia right to carry sticker on his car." Does anyone know how to enhance the video and take away some of the loud radio traffic that muffles what the officer was saying? If anyone does, please message me or let me know. This is a good example of how to deal with a LEO stop, but I keep my pistol on my side so I don't think this would have helped me much. I guess this just goes to show that having a GCO sticker on your car can get you taken out of a car and patted down for weapons. Of course, I don't know what he would have done had he found a weapon or seen it in plain sight. This was written to me by a friend who is a GCO member, but doesn't post here. I thought I'd post it for all to see here. Just to help us out, and let everyone know that LEOs know what GCO is, and also that you may be asked to step out of your car and patted down if the officer notices your sticker. I also have a sticker on the outside of my car. I don't know if he's going to get the dashcam video, but if he gets it and posts it on the internet, I'll post it as soon as I get it. He also should have said, "Sir, I do not consent to any searches." He didn't put this in the email, so I'm assuming he didn't say it Updated: GCO didn't see anything that was too serious with a questionable pat down, even though the officer specifically mentioned the GCO sticker was the reason he asked about weapons, asked him to step out of the car, and patted him down. This coming from the GCO member themselves. I'm still going to try to persuade him to get the Dashcam video just for his records, and plus I'd like to see and hear everything that went down. I'm still going to try and persuade him to talk to the chief officer about this situation. He told me that he would like to do something, but just doesn't know what to do. He definitely told me that a lawsuit is out of the question, because of his finances. Someone would have to do it pro bono. He would have to find an attorney that thought he even had a case, and according to one, they don't think he has a case. If anybody knows of an attorney who is willing to look at the case, and may think about pro bono, let me know. Other than that, this is just about stopped in its tracks. I believe the case law already mentioned has to do with a deep full search of the automobile for firearms, which the officer did not do in this situation. Just a patdown. I'm not saying what the officer did was perfect, but I think officers can do a pat down for weapons just because of the ole' "officer safety." Don't quote me on that, though. The officer in this instance did not do a full and deep search of his car. Only a plain view search, which is of course, legal. Maybe I can persuade him to at least get the video for it. I would like to see it, and I'm sure others here would like to as well. Let me know what all of you guys think about this. Thanks for all of the support everyone.
