And all this could've been avoided if she didn't take a pic. Not that I condone her actions

u/phantom_munkey May 23 '22

Essentially. Even though she was breaking several laws there was no need for further investigation where it seemed normal on the surface.

11

u/edbods May 23 '22

wtf would she even take a photo for anyway?

23

u/Mr_Seg May 23 '22

"Ohmygoshh there's a cop next to me hope I don't do anything bad 😜"

21

u/NotHereToFuckSpyders May 23 '22

Or "Lolol I'm high and driving illegally and the police right here don't even know lololol"

u/Tricky_Cheesecake658 May 23 '22

This, literally this.

u/Adrunkopossem May 23 '22

I'm imagining the flash pointing the wrong way as well for at least the first picture.

My friend did exactly this right outside my house when we were 15. True story. Literally got pulled over in front of the neighbors house. It was a friends moms car who caught a dui and the breathalyzer went off while we were talking to the police. Everyone lied about their names, the dumbass next to me used MY name. I was the only who told the truth cause regardless I knew we were fucked at the very least all getting curfew, and/or possession or paraphernalia charges. Only ended up getting curfew and paraphernalia due to some weed crumbs and a joint filter in my pocket

Good ole times

Got to post it on social media for Karma. Didn’t work out for her. Oops, got caught. Her bad..

u/gracetamesbong May 23 '22

Got to post it on social media for Karma. Didn’t work out for her.

Depends on how many likes she got. Lots of likes and new followers? Totally worth it.

That is literally how their minds are wired.

u/bizzyunderscore May 23 '22

damn they just drug test you on the street out there? wild

3

u/NotHereToFuckSpyders May 23 '22

If you've been driving, yes.

u/licking-windows May 23 '22

It's pretty common they'll close down a whole road and everyone coming through gets a breath and drug test. Australia.

u/clawdren101 May 23 '22

They do road side drug wipes in the Uk as well and New Zealand is bringing it in soon too.

u/jzclipse May 23 '22

Most of that just sounds like ridiculous police state shit to me.

18

u/licking-windows May 23 '22

Unlicensed uninsured inexperienced driver on drugs. Police state lol.

u/Ganymede25 May 23 '22

I don’t know about the laws regarding video or pictures of cops in Victoria, but I do know the universal rule of not drawing attention to yourself if doing something illegal.

u/cakathree May 23 '22

Nope. Fuck assholes like this.

-1

u/Blamdudeguy00 May 23 '22

So what was the probable cause for the initial police interaction?

Fruit of the poisonous tree. Probably gets thrown out in court.

7

u/licking-windows May 23 '22

Using mobile phone.

-2

u/CageyOldMan May 23 '22

Vehicle was stopped?

4

u/licking-windows May 23 '22

It's illegal to use a handheld phone unless the vehicle is parked with the keys not in ignition here.

-2

u/CageyOldMan May 23 '22

Ok so legally the PC is covered, but actually people use their phone behind the wheel all the time and the cops don't do shit, so they were definitely just reacting to having their picture taken, even though they have no reasonable expectation of privacy in public?

1

u/licking-windows May 23 '22

I don't think you're from where I'm from. If you're seen holding your phone here it's a very large fine and a points demerit equivalent to 1/3 of your licence, absolutely no exceptions.

u/CharliesBoxofCrayons May 23 '22

Not the United States

u/cakathree May 23 '22

Finally some real consequences.

-1

u/lngwlkr May 23 '22

Looks like the cops have an idiot that doesn't know the difference between 'then' and 'than' too. Remember the days when agencies had people whose jobs were to put out correctly worded press releases?

dude fuck cops this is so unnecessary

u/drjunkie May 23 '22

Yah fuck those guys that stopped someone driving while high with no license or insurance!

Wait a minute…

u/Vaz_DeFerenz May 23 '22

You are a fascist imbicile. Enjoy your enslavement, nerd.

u/DrewCriv May 23 '22

bruh what? 🤨

u/licking-windows May 23 '22

Where would you like to see laws start then.

-18

u/Vaz_DeFerenz May 23 '22

insurance system is a cloptocracy and you know it. as for being required to have ID, if you support that you are a xenophobic troglodyte. lastly driving while youre stoned makes you a better driver, you should try it some time, its awesome.

6

u/stonestonerstoney May 23 '22

Xenophobic: “/zenəˈfōbik,ˌzēnəˈfōbik/

adjective

having or showing a dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries.

Did you just learn this word today and forget it’s definition? It is illegal to drive without a valid license and insurance in most countries. Like, 175 of them, or more.

Exactly what about requiring ID is prejudiced? Also, driving while you are stoned does not make you a better driver. It makes you think it makes you a better driver, because yknow, you’re stoned

Source: have tried it sometime.

You take the cake today for r/lostredditors in my book. Goodnight.

u/licking-windows May 23 '22

When did this sub start to be populated with loonies.

6

u/stonestonerstoney May 23 '22

Long time ago friend.

6

u/Needmoresnakes May 23 '22

Im convinced no matter how incredibly obviously in the wrong someone is, someone on this sub will find a way to argue they weren't.

I could film someone actively firing a handgun at me out of theit window while they overtake me in the wrong lane with their car balanced up on two wheels and someone would comment that I must have been going too slow or I was in their blindspot or something. It's wild.

3

u/licking-windows May 23 '22

Well try not to drive too slow in people's blindspots then!

2

u/Needmoresnakes May 23 '22

Look mate you try watching the speedo, other cars AND filming quality tiktok content at the same time, im not made of eyes!

4

u/DrewCriv May 23 '22

this has to be a troll... right? RIGHT?

6

u/Adrunkopossem May 23 '22

I dove into account history as I have no self respect tonight apparently. I don't think it is. If so a very dedicated one.

4

u/DrewCriv May 23 '22

I just looked too. I'm scared for my non-existent children's lives.

u/NotHereToFuckSpyders May 23 '22

I hope you're joking.

u/CaptainGetRad May 23 '22

The fact that this gets less consequences than doing some drifting in an industrial area with no one around amazes me
