Martial Law Cannot Be Far Away Now! Massive Car To Car Warrantless Search In DC Region

Sunday, March 16, 2014 5:13



(Before It's News)

The ‘Police State’ in America officially exploded into the DC Capitol Region as hundreds of cars were stopped in a massive roadblock and a warrantless car to car search ensued for alleged bank robbers and drivers were met by the likes of what we see below. One woman had to vomit and was ordered to close her door. The story unfolds below. Live cell phone video of ‘the event’ is also below.





As described, these searches were in no way consensual and were performed with the motorists under duress.   Nothing ordered at gunpoint can ever be considered voluntary.  Not surprisingly, we have not seen a report of anyone brave enough to refuse the hostile violation of the 4th amendment.



Is THIS really what we want our country and our society to be like? If so, this is proof that the terrorists won…America has turned into a police state.

 

ROCKVILLE, MD — Thousands of motorists were brought to a standstill when police conducted a massive roadblock to find three crime suspects.  Twelve lanes of traffic were shut down and swarms of armed government agents combed through a giant traffic jam performing warrantless vehicle-to-vehicle searches.

 

The busy Tuesday morning commute was abruptly halted just after 10:00 a.m. on March 11th.  One driver told ABC News that traffic stopped and he witnessed 30 police cars pass on the shoulders of I-270 near Rockville.  “Then, when I saw a wall of police officers with automatic weapons approaching our cars, it was apparent that something serious was taking place.”



Miles of cars were stranded and motorists were confined to their vehicles, with no explanation, for over an hour.  Confused people exiting their vehicles were met with hostility from the police.   WTOP reported that one woman leaned out her door to vomit, she was shouted at by cops to close her door.

 

“It’s just awful,” motorist Carmel Desroche to WJLA, describing the traffic jam.  “I’ve never seen both directions of 270 like this before.  It was painful.”

 

While stuck in traffic, motorists were approached by armed agents and ordered at gunpoint to submit to warrantless searches of the interior of their vehicles.  The Washington Post interviewed an innocent driver named Don Troop who experienced the ordeal.

 


A group of officers made its way to his car and other cars around him. “They were just walking along saying: ‘Pop the trunk! Pop the trunk!’”

He overheard a man in a truck next to him call out to another motorist: The police are looking for bank robbers. A short time later, about nine officers approached his car — including state police in tan uniforms, county police in dark uniforms and at least one plainclothes officer wearing a yellow tie.

Among their commands to motorists that Troop heard:

“Stay in your car.”

“Pop the trunk.”

“Get your hands on the steering wheel. Get you hands up where we can see them.”

The wife and I are going to D.C. next month and then on to see our son get his Master's at Penn State.  Since I have a "Viet Nam Veteran" license plate, I wonder if I'll get "extra attention" from the Gestapo? :shrug:

Hey ranger. Good article thank for posting. Please fix the articles title to say 'Martial' Law.  :laugh: you scared me for a sec I thought Obama created a new law or reg.

After the invasion of residential neighborhoods with armored vehicles clamoring down the streets and storm troopers sweeping people in their home windows with rifles while others were ordered out of their homes at gun point, nothing will surprise me. All in the name of security, anything goes.

not to excuse or justify anything, but they were in hot pursuit, if you will.

Like you said, it doesn't excuse or justify it....and that's using a pretty lax definition of hot pursuit. It was actually a search, not a pursuit

Let's not forget to point something out here.  Elected Republicans are extinct in Montgomery County, Maryland. 

It's an ant farm for anybody studying one-party rule in the current social and political environment.

Congrats to your son! What's he getting his Masters in?

I have a Gadsden plate on my truck with "IMPEACH OBAMA" and "9MM BEATS 9-1-1 EVERY TIME" bumper stickers and USMC & OATH KEEPERS decals on the rear window. Think I might get some added attention?   :patriot: :beer:

Oh, is there a sliding scale with definitions for the various classifications now? Help me out, at what point does a hot pursuit become a cold pursuit become a search? If somebody thinks they heard somebody else say they saw someone....maybe....will that satisfy the justification for an in between, kind of hot pursuit

Watch any Black&White gangster movie from the 1950's and you will see the same thing. Cops have been doing this forever. I think the title is misleading. I doubt the Cops were 'searching' the vehicles. It is much more likely that they were 'identifying' occupants, looking for the bank robbers. That is why they were asking people to pop the trunk.
 
That is a bit different than searching your car. JMHO

Troopers ordering people to pop the trunk at gunpoint is a bit different from asking also.

True.
 
Law enforcement today on all levels is much more beligerent and unnecessarily confrontational than it used to be. Instead of being viewed as citizens, today average Americans seemed to be viewed as eniemies by policemen, and everybody is a threat. And they tend to draw weapons on the slightest perceived provocation. That is agreed.
 
But I have had my car searched by the police and if this happens, you will definitely know it. Your glove box will be empty and most likely ripped out, and everything that was in the car will be strewn everywhere.
 
It is not the kind of thing where you have to guess, Oh my, I think they searched my car. They leave no doubt about it when they are done. I can't imagine they would have the time to do this to hundreds of vehicles, no matter how many Cops were there.

A search is a search regardless how thorough or not. The bigger issue is the way the citizenry is treated by ever more belligerent police forces that feel free to suspend/ignore constitutional rights and treat people like convicted felons with apparent impunity. Personally I find this incredibly troubling

Great point!

I do believe that my "9MM BEATS 9-1-1 EVERY TIME" sticker may have a "calming effect" on some people. (Sometimes the 9MM is a .45, but that's my little secret)

No, it's more like being aware of the different areas in the world and the natural resources available, transportation, geo-political knowledge, etc.

Where's the outrage?  Was anything done about this abuse of power by the police?  No one filed a compliant or did they all just accept that this is the way it is?  That's the part that's troubling.
