Don't get me wrong I like to sit in camp and have a few beers or some captain and cokes. But the LEOs this weekend were out for blood. You did not have to be driniking or doing anything wrong for them to mess with you.
On Friday I was pulling into was road and saw two rangers sitting on each side wash road. I pulled by going under the speed limit. One of the LEOs pulled out behind me pulled up next to my drivers window looked over and stopped. He pulled in back behind me and lit me up. I am 27 and drive a 2008 gmc 2500hd and was towing my 40ft toy hauler. He came up and said he pulled me over for tinted tail lights.( which they are barely tinted and legal according to California vehicle code)
Asked for license reg. and insurance. Which I provided. He went back ran me. I've never been arrested period. Came back to my truck and asked me to step out. And asked if I had any guns in the truck cuz a lot of people have been bringing weapons into glamis. I said In my truck there is nothing. HE said well we are going to search it. I asked for probably cause. He informed me that I was on federal land and he does not need cause or a warrant. So they searched my truck. Found nothing. Then he told me that he wanted to search my trailer and once again said that because I am on federal land he can search it. I then told him there is a gun in the cabinet in the trailer. By this time he had 8 officers for back up. They got the dog ran it through and tore up my trailer. All they found was my gun which I told there where it was. They pulled it out ran the numbers finally figured out it is legally my gun. Checked every round I had in the Clip. Gave me a ticket for my tail lights. And said have a good weekend.
Then to top it off. I was pulling out of wash 3 on Monday morning and got pulled over again. Same thing LEO went around my dad who was behind me. Pulled up next to my truck and stopped. When I went by he pulled in behind me and lit me up. Came up to the truck and I asked my he pulled me over. HE said my window tint. Mine are dark, My dads are limo.
Asked for all my info went back to his truck ran me. I came back clear. He then asked if i had any weapons in my truck. I told him I already went through all this on the way in. He went and confirmed and came back said have a good day.
If i was doing anything wrong I could see getting pulled over. But not once but twice in the same weekend. I was profiled. By law enforcement. This is not what my tax dollars and season pass fees are supposed to be going to. They need to be going after criminals. The drunk drivers. Not the people not breaking a single law just want to harass younger people.
Just my experience with the LEOs this weekend and it was not a pleasant one to say the least.
