    Lightbulb "Intelligence-led policing" case thrown out of court by SAO

    • [Using an Intelligence-led policing philosophy], the officer subsequently ran a check on the registered owner of the car and discovered that he had two past drug-related arrests.
    • The officer then stopped the vehicle when it did not come to a complete stop at a stop sign.
    • The driver refused to allow the officer to search the vehicle, so the officer called for a K9 to respond to the scene.
    • The K9 arrived 119 seconds after the officer completed the traffic citation.
    • During an exterior open air sniff, the K9 reportedly alerted, so the officer searched the interior of the vehicle and found rock cocaine (a third-degree felony)

    Journalism can never be silent: that is its greatest virtue and its greatest fault. It must speak, and speak immediately, while the echoes of wonder, the claims of triumph and the signs of horror are still in the air.
