    is no excuse for breaking the law.
    Just ask any police officer.

    And can anyone claim not to know that a cavity search on the side of a road is wrong?

    And the excuse "Just following orders" shouldn't get her very far either.

      and the focus should stay on the jerk calling her in.  Frankly, if a cop stops me I'll do as a Chicago cop told his sister to do-- open the window an inch and tell him I'll follow him to the nearest station house.  I am old and over the decades have become downright afraid of cops, and I'm not brown-skinned either.  This Gestapo, swat-team for everything approach of the police in this country badly needs to be stopped.  Between them and the gun nuts it's become an unpredictably dangerous country.
