as for ashley, she might not be a household name outside of pittsburgh but what she did was certainly HUGE national news.

Ashley Todd mugging hoax - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

i brought her up cause this story sounds kind of fishy (especially considering that someone has already said they heard the same story last week). plus she used to work for paul's campaign apparently and slashed her own tires, claiming that someone did it because of her paul stickers and signs.

People in the C4L/RP cluster have been questioned. Fortunately, one of those guys spied on big daddy gubmint like a good patriot should! I'm inclined to believe this story based on previous events, and will be more inclined to believe when someone records one of these folks harassing a driver.

Now I believe I'll order as many Gadsden and Ron Paul bumper stickers as my car will fit Whatever will increase my chances of getting one of these guys on camera!

honestly, i could see a cop hassling someone about their sticker, and that is totally wrong.

i just doubt that he was pulled over for the writing on the sticker alone.

if this happened at all - again, someone said they heard the exact same story last week.

LEOs profile people all the time. He's a link to an article discussing profiling of possible militia members:

I would accept., that I was pulled over for the excuse that it was "obstructing me view" because its on my truck window lower left side. But really its not obstructing my view at all. But the questions I was asked for completely unfair and unamerican and what I think we all know what is going on in this country.
NJ State Cop asks?

Dont you think you should take down those stickers the 08 election is over?
Are you in a militia?
Do you own guns?
Can I search your vechile?


All this from the NJ state police over my stickers obstruction of my view?
Wasnt speeding had seatbelt I was pulled over for my Ron Paul sticker and the cop told me so as a follow up to those who have them on their automobiles.

Free speech is under attack and any political view for that matter.
Stickers? As in plural?

Today would've been a GREAT day to have Ron Paul stuff on your bumper as Obama is supposed to be in Raleigh. A TON of cops stationed at each exit along the beltline. Plenty of opportunity to record some bad behavior and get some goooooood media coverage, perhaps get a few officers fired.

When I see this on the news, I might believe it.
Why not report the guy?

The police officer knows who you are. If you're in a small town, he/she might make your life a living hell.
