What is Probable Cause?

so if you're pulled over don't try to

figure out whether or not the officers

probable cause to literally search you

you always have the right to refuse

searches and don't consent to searches

but they're gonna search us anyway

sometimes they will but saying no isn't

just about stopping the search it might

stop the search or at my name cross your

leg point is that refusing the search

can help you later if you end up in

court if the police search you without

consent your lawyer can challenge that

as your attorney I'd be much more likely

to win your case if you said no to the

search if I do not consent when are

police allowed to search my car you

mentioned probable cause what does that


probable cause means police must have

clear facts or evidence to believe

you're involved in criminal activity in

other words an officer's hunch without

evidence of illegal activity is not

enough to search or arrest you but it

doesn't take much most affordable police

search has happened not because police

have probable cause they happen because

people are tricked or intimidated into

consenting so an expired registration

isn't probable cause to search my car no

it's not but you still got to be careful

courts are eager to uphold police

searches so something suspicious about

you and your car could be considered

probable cause I'm not the kind of guy

to tell you how you should express

yourself expressing yourself is one

thing but exposing yourself to police by

being a public nuisance

everybody knows who I wore number six

don't expose yourself
