Here’s video taken by a guy who was Hut! Hut! Hutted! by a pair of Virginia armed government workers – forced to submit to a search of his vehicle – triggered by a state sssssssssssssssssssssssafety inspection that was four days out of date.
The man’s real offense, of course, is Failure to Show Deference. The AGW who pulled him over – that is, used the threat of murderous violence to compel the man to stop his vehicle and submit to an interrogation and “papers, pleasing”- is clearly miffed when the man politely inquires as to whether he is legally obliged to answer the AGW’s questions about his destination, where he was coming from, etc.
This results in more AGWs appearing – over an out-of-date inspection sticker (but not really, of course).
The AGW then demands to “run his dog” around the man’s car – this being the performance art used by AGWs who need to create probable cause where it doesn’t exist. This is done by having an animal trot around the car, whine, cock its head or sit – any of which serves as “proof” that there are “drugs” in the car, thus enabling the search of the car.
So the man is obliged – being at the mercy of armed thugs – to let the animal snuff around his vehicle, scratch his car’s paint – and so on – for the performance art to confect the probable cause.
The man is subsequently arrested for “obstruction of justice” for declining to facilitate the searching of his car. He is cuffed and taken to jail.
No “illegal drugs” were found and the man was eventually released.
