Dirty car? Pull over there for the unconstitutional extra search

U.S. Border Patrol Agent Eric Morehead (sp?), apparently working at an internal I-19 checkpoint (that is, not at the border), asking to search a motorist's trunk because his "car is dirty":

We can clearly observe a calm and polite citizen whose simple exercising of his 4th Amendment rights manages to fluster several agents (who seem to be at a complete loss as to how to proceed once their "request" is flatly denied).

"Don't take my picture, man. What's wrong with you?"

Photographing law enforcement officers in the public performance of their duties now makes one a weirdo worthy of chastisement, at least according to these particular cops.

Smile and say "cheese", sir.
