Police in Aurora, Colo., searching for suspected bank robbers stopped every car at an intersection, handcuffed all the adults and searched the cars, one of which they believed was carrying the suspect.No description - at ALL.
“We didn’t have a description, didn’t know race or gender or anything, so a split-second decision was made to stop all the cars at that intersection, and search for the armed robber,” Aurora police Officer Frank Fania told ABC News.
“Most of the adults were handcuffed, then were told what was going on and were asked for permission to search the car,” Fania said. “They all granted permission, and once nothing was found in their cars, they were un-handcuffed.” The search lasted between an hour and a half and two hours, and it wasn’t until the final car was searched that police apprehended the suspect.
I have just pegged the rage-o-meter. If that had been me, they'd have found at LEAST one loaded gun, several boxes of various ammo, and all the other detritus that accumulates in my truck. And as soon as I was out of cuffs, the first call would be the slimiest greediest lawyer I could find, and the second would be the press.
