    Supreme court rewrites law about vehicle searches

    The United States Supreme Court recently re-wrote the law on search and seizure regarding vehicles. Now, if a police officer pulls you over for a traffic violation and then removes you from your vehicle and handcuffs you, he can not then go back into the car to search for drugs and guns (or any other evidence).

    The general advice I've heard so far is, if a cop does this to you, go ahead and let him.

    Then when you're talking with your attorney, bring the subject up and watch his eyes dance with glee over a slam-dunk dismissal.

    The more often the cops get embarrassed in court, the quicker they'll learn.
