Can You Say

4th Amendment lawsuit and big-ass monetary award?

“Asked about Constitutional concerns, and the need for probable cause, Parks says the recent wave of crime is the probable cause and justifies the extreme new measures.”

“Vehicles that are moving will be stopped and searched for guns, weapons, drugs, and open alcohol and any other violations that are taking place,” Parks later told KMOX’s Mark Reardon. “People who are walking, people who are bicycling, can be stopped and searched for the same and, when it comes to state IDs, we’re going to be confirming that state IDs are in place for everyone involved.”

Parks noted the legal questions surrounding his new policies but said “most importantly, we have to do something.”

“We have desperate times, they call for desperate measures and they call for extreme measures, things that we may not have done before, to get the desired results.”

Good luck with that. I’m thinking your city attorneys are going to shut you down, hard.

It seems they made a whopping 4 arrests for curfew violations over the weekend, and the mayor has admitted that trying to ban specific color was maybe not the brightest idea he has ever had.

H/T to Chris.
