I had a horrible experience on hwy 35 about 30 miles south of Purcell. I was driving North, obeying all the laws, when some redneck deputy pulled me over for a tail light out. Next thing you know it, 3 or 4 other deputies pulled up and were flashing there lights. OMG what in the world are they doing? Next thing you know it, I was told that I was to be searched. (No warrant), and just like the gastopo, they started going thru my stuff. They would not let me view what they were doing. I was sure they were going to plant something. They said based on my eyes, they would search my car for Narcotics. They then brought a dog to search my vehical. The dog found nothing, but the cop made it sound like the dog did. I used to handle drug dogs in the Navy, so I know when a dog has found something. The dog had NO INTEREST in my car at all. Next thing you know they were crawling all over my front seat, once again with out my permission. The older ulgy deputy said they found white powder on my seat. They asked me to explain it, I thought it might have food or somthing. The deputy then pulled out a test of somekind (I never was allowed to see what the heck they were doing) Bingo, as you guessed it, the cop said it tested positive for Cocaine (big suprise). They tried to bully me into a confession. When I denied it they told me that they were going to take to to jail unless I was straight with them, and that if I just admitted it, they would let me go. Finally after 40 or so minutes, I was left to gather my stuff, which they had all over the road. I was finally allowed to leave. They made nasty comments about how I got lucky tonight. I said, I don't know how this could be lucky, the only mistake I made was driving thru your county. The dumb jerk said "Welcome to Oklahoma". and laughed. Some of my stuff was missing. When I got home I had a neighbor who worked for the sheriff test the white poweder and it was not cocaine. Turns out, it was residue for a stick of deorderant. I am now in touch with a lawyer for damages. I called the Undersherif and he told me he would investigate. Who knows what that will yeild. I would like to know if anybody has had the same experiences.

OMG I'm sorry that happened to you. Thanks for the warning I hope that I never get stopped in Garvin County. I live in Oklahoma County and I have never really had an experience like that before. Is there anything you can do now?

If you do get stopped in Galvin make sure you don't give them permission to search your car. You may have nothing to hide but THEY DO. The Undersheriff was supposed to call me today to tell me about the investigation and I have not heard. Im sure the Good ol boy system is in full force. No, avioid hwy 35 in Galvin County at all costs. Imagine if I were a minority.....It sort of opens my eyes to police harrassment and the feeling of helplessness that must occure to them.

what you gonna do, what you gonna do when they come for YOU!

I-35 is a drug corridor that is closely watched. Wasn't this the same bunch that put a sign on I-35 years ago that said "Prepare to stop--drug dog checkpoint ahead" or something like that. Then they waited at the nearby exit and stopped all the cars that took that exit?

If it is a drug corridor I can see how easily it can happen. It is a shame that they took it out on sber though. I think the police get harded by doing this type of job and so others suffer for it. They all need to take classes on how to treat people, how to handle stress, etc.

They sure do, Jessaka. I have been yelled at by so many police & sheriff deputies. Then they give me a warning lately but I have had plenty of tickets. They do have a lot of stress so I forgive them. I sometimes meet very nice cops though. The sheriff and deputies in Hughes Co. are very nice, but we don't have the roads to qualify as a drug corridor.

Yes I35 is a drug Corridor. No doubt about it. But I want to warn you folks, these cops weren't just "doing there job", they were violating the Constitution, and they were having quite a good time at it. They were laughing at my expense, searching my car with out a warrant, or cause. They were threatening me, trying to get me to confess. Told me if I would be stright with them, they would let me go, as if this would work in any situation, guilty or not. As mentioned they claimed they found traces of cocaine that turned out to be smeared deodorant. They drilled me about the two cans of Red bull in my car. What the heck is illegal about redbull.....The under sheriff told me on the phone a couple of days ago that energy drinks in a car set off a suspicion that the driver might be a drug runner. Well I'm here to tell the Sheriffs office of Garvin that energy drinks are also used by people who are trying to stay alert late at night. I had a 15 hour drive. Oh they were having a great time. Its my opinion that these guys were the bullies in the yard at grade school. They were enjoying the thrill of the kill, and like my cat with a rodent, sometimes he just likes to toy with the prey before he kills it. I have been stopped by police before for speeding, and generally I would say that they have been very professional and courteous. The ticket sucks, but I have always been guilty of what ever they have written the ticket for. These Garvin County thugs were unorganized, unprofessional, and corrupt.
