Thirdpower has a post detailing a fairly disturbing program that will be run in DC, that includes deputization of DC police as federal agents
Some days, the unit will employ “high-intensity traffic stops,” pulling over cars for minor offenses to try to establish probable cause to search vehicles. Officers also will use informants to help them secure search warrants for suspected gun holders.
Employ “high-intensity traffic stops?”Â I’d rather call it by its real name. “high-intensity crapping on the fourth amendment.”
