The change would let unlicensed drivers summon someone with a license, who would then be allowed to drive the car away. Chief Charlie Beck calls it a fairness issue.

I would think citizens could sue for discrimination.

It's like that here, only citizens are expected to show proof of insurance, drivers licenses. The police do all they can never to pull over an illegal no matter how falling apart the vehicle, no matter that the car lacks license plates, or is some old beater from 1983 and has a paper dealer plate. If they accidently pull over an illegal, all the rules are changed. The cops just give them a warning, no ticket.

Yet the pro-illegals claim that they and their citizen counterparts are being pulled over based simply on their looks (racial profiling). Well what's all the fuss about if they are just being let go anyway while being in violation of the law?

I like the comparison that one person posted in the comments section of the link said,

" A convicted felon gets caught with a gun. The police confiscate the gun. The felon shows up at the police station with somebody who can legally own the gun and they give it to that person who immediately gives it back to the felon."

With policies like this in effect we are fast approaching a world similar to the one depicted in the movie, Idiocracy.

Why bother to pull anyone over? It is just not "fair". I. Think there will be "racial profiling" now, and only blondes will get pulled over, to avoid being accused of racism for pulling over blacks and Hispanics. And that is, in and of itself, "racial profiling".
