Title: Cops Fail at Window Tint Stop After Man Calls Them Out for Being ‘Above the Law’

Baton Rouge, LA — If ever you think that all traffic laws are for your safety, one thing can change that view—window tint. In the land of the free, if police feel that your window tint is too dark, they will claim the right to extort money from you. If you resist this extortion, police will claim the right to kidnap or kill you. Unfortunately, in the land of the free, these instances happen so frequently that they are often caught on video too. While many of the instances over window tint TFTP reports on end badly, the following case has a far better outcome.

In an exclusive interview with the Free Thought Project, Emanuel Armstrong Jr. tells us that he was on his way to work last week when two cops — who never identified what department they are with or anything else — approached him and told him his window tint was too dark.

“We are stopping you today for your window tint,” the unidentified officer, dressed in plainclothes says.

“They are pulling me over for my tint,” Armstrong says before calling out their hypocrisy “look at his tint.”

Armstrong then zooms in on the unmarked police car which has the entire front window tinted so dark, you cannot even see the dashboard.

Armstrong then proceeds to call the officers out for their hypocrisy, noting that they think they are above the law.

“His tint is the same darkness as mine, and he’s pulling me over for it, like he’s above the law,” Armstrong says in the video.

“The law applies to everybody, correct?” he adds.

The officer then asks Armstrong if he has a tint exemption to which Armstrong answers, “no I don’t have a tint exemption, do you?”

The officer says they do but then fails to produce it.

The stop, which started over claims of dark tint then turns into a fishing expedition as cops detain Armstrong for over ten minutes trying their damnedest to find something on this innocent man.

However, Armstrong stood his ground, knowing full well he had no warrants and nothing that the cops could hold him on.

When the other cop comes back after trying to find something on Armstrong, he tells him that his license is suspended, but his commercial driver’s license is just fine. The deputy with the West Baton Rouge sheriff’s office seemed entirely confused on what he was trying to say.

However, Armstrong tells us that he checked with the DMV after the incident and there was no such suspended license, it was all incorrect.

After Armstrong continued to call out their hypocrisy, he was eventually let go—with no citations. Rights flexed.

Armstrong says he feels like these were undercover cops on a fishing expedition for drugs and since he was squeaky clean, they struck out when harassing him.

While one of the deputies had a badge on identifying him as a deputy with the West Baton Rouge sheriff’s department, they both had on other badges that said “secret squirrel.”

Exactly what this entirely unprofessional patch these officers had on their vests meant is a mystery. However, the term secret squirrel can have multiple definitions, including: one who acts sly or does sneaky things or someone that is working on covert operations or has secret, confidential knowledge.

Why some covert team of undercover cops would want anything to do with window tint is a mystery. However, the outcome was a victory for Armstrong. Now, if we can just get cops to stop arbitrarily extorting people for protecting themselves from the sun, that would be a great start.

I bet those cops speed, run red lights, and double-park, too. Why can't we do that? Waaaah!

Attaboy!

How many people have been killed by cops driving drunk or recklessly?

Here's another example of "Blue Privelege".

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.
