got arrested for the first time tonight
So stupid i always disliked the law and now i dislike it far more. I was driving to my gf's house (literally two miles away in distance). Turned right from a one lane road to a two lane road, my turn after is like maybe 300 feet away so i skipped the first lane. I do this all the time and see lots of people do it. Bam pulled over. I get nervous when i get pulled over so my hands were shaking a little cop thought i was under the influence of something gave me a sobriety test. I Failed somehow and he searched my car finding my weed stash which had less than 3 grams.

I get arrested because of that and possible dui. I passed the doctors test at the jail but still got slammed with two tickets. one for the traffic violation 300$. the other for possesion of weed 1000$. My car got towed so all in all i owe 1500$. wtf?

I dont sell (never did) , i dont steal, dont do anything i would consider bad especially in the eyes of the law. Why must good people get in trouble for something so small and have to pay big? I mean if i sold drugs i would understand but no.. What you guys think?

Doesn't really matter what we think -- possession is against the law in most states - and obviously wreckless driving is too.

Where I live - if you're caught with even a roach in a vehicle - you get locked up until you post bond or a court date is set. If you're driving wreckless on top of it - you're going to be in there probably until the case is closed.

I've known people to spend a few weeks in jail over nothing but a one-hitter - already cashed..

Don't feel bad, traffic and drug infractions are the only things that the police can actually do.
Its like this, if one person is carrying drugs and another person has stolen goods the only guaranteed conviction is the drugs.
It is easier to get away with murder than carrying drugs.

Re: got arrested for the first time tonight
Yaahhhh I hear you. Listen, don't harbor any grudges or bad feelings. Think about it more like this. It was a 1500 dollar learning experience. It was paid training. This wasn't the first lesson like this you'll have, they'll be more yet.

The challenge that I see is that the justice system is a far cry from what it use to be. The cops justification is "they're trying to do their job". But on the other hand what that job has turned into to a large degree is revenue generating. Like I use to think nothing of when I see a cop somewhere. I don't fear them, but knowing there job is to revenue generate to some degree makes me nervious so I try and stay away from them. But they don't hate you, they're just doing there job. They don't understand the big picture of the system, and even if they did they still have to put food on there kitchen table so they're not gonna quit there job. I don't think I've ever met a really bad cop. Last time the guy apologised for giving me a speeding ticket. So they're good people deep down, but their job dicates they try and generate revenue.

The problem is like this....

Lets say a cop let everything slide. And many do infact. The problem is they're never giving out tickets and say they're always lettting the bad guy go with a warning. Then you have to ask yourself "what am I paying them to do?". So they write up tickets, and arrests. That shows that theyre doing there job of getting "the bad guy". The problem happens though that often a normal decent guy will get busted for something minor and then there left screaming "where's the justice in that!" etc etc.

But that's sort of collateral damage.

but again that's just one of the many many things in the world that are out there. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. So again don't have bad feelings. That's life. Just be more careful next time. Like if you didn't have the weed and were not driving iradically then you might have not been pulled over or arrested. so you have to take personal responsiblity for that. now be a good little sheeple and you can reserve your right to be a bonnified free range chicken okay!

 Quoting: The Loophole


pretty much sums it up. It is just another tool to extract resources from the people. If the cop could have he would have seized your car to auction away.

Hard lesson to learn, but if you are doing something the cops will arrest you for, always follow every letter of the law.

Or as it was stated in Gangs of New York.
"The appearance of the law must be maintained, especially when one is breaking it."

Sorry you have to endure this lesson in freedom. :(

Exactly, as we all feel the economic stress, we all look to find extra income. The police do this by creating criminals and therefore fine money revenue.

My friend got pulled over last night for driving in the passing lane. Not speeding, but driving in the left lane when no other cars were around. Me thinks the police are really getting scummier and scummier by the minute.

The legal system is so economically regressive.
A rich man can pay the $1,300 in fines and not even feel it, while a poor man can easily be financially ruined and find it extremely difficult to get a job subsequently.

OP... you are your own worst enemy.

I'm not a fan of the current weed laws or law enforcement, but you set yourself up for failure what with drugs in your car and driving improperly.

But no worries... you can always blame the cop, the law, politicians or the Universe as a whole. You seem to be a victim of your own apathy/stupidity/arrogance, but it is okay to blame anything other than yourself. After all, liberals do it all the time!

Time to legalize weed already. Sadly I see lots of bad dangerous drivers never getting pulled over, when someone does its often a technicality. Cops are never there when some speed crazed fucktard almost runs you off the road, but will appear from nowhere ten seconds if a tail light burns out.

That was legality not law. Learn the law and shit like that cant happen to you. But if you dont know the law and are foolish enough to think mans legal system is law then you get treated like a slave. Learn the law dont complain about your lack of understanding the law. The legal system is a fiction. It is not law. It is not a lawful system.
