If you mean you have no proof they pulled you over you're wrong. All stops are recorded video/audio as long as the lights are on. And if you ever get pulled over for no reason feel free to complain to the chief. If there's an officer doing that and multiple reports show up it will catch up to them.

Well, you'd better get used to that one: The woman slapping the hell outta the man and him going to jail for deflecting the blows. Not to say this is always, or even often the case, but it's worth considering.

In one case, they were stepping off the curb out into the street to look into my window. Seemed a little hazardous at the time. I'm just glad I was wearing pants.

And by your reasoning, the police should use any excuse they can come up with to detain and question you, on the off chance that statistically you will be a dangerous criminal. After all, in your minds, the ends justify the means. In fact, if the police want to pull you over and question you, they pretty much have carte blanche. They can claim you crossed the center line, were weaving, taillight out,…

Ill. Supreme Court won't hear term limits appeal

2 months ago Associated Press

Proponents will seek a hearing with Appellate Court

From Associated Press:

The Illinois Supreme Court decided Thursday not to immediately consider whether voters should get a chance to limit terms for state legislators.

Without comment, the court took a pass on an appeal of a circuit court's June ruling that barred the question from appearing on election ballots, along with a second proposal that would have asked voters if they wanted an independent way of drawing political boundaries.

But Mark Campbell, executive director of Term Limits and Reform, said proponents would file Friday for a hearing with a state appellate court.

Constitutional questions decided in circuit courts go directly to the Supreme Court. Campbell said the high court's decision Thursday simply indicates that justices want the matter to wend its way through the typical process.

The appeal will seek an expedited hearing, with deadlines approaching for printing ballots for the Nov. 4 election, Campbell said.

"No matter who wins or loses at the appellate level, it's going to wind up in front of the Supreme Court anyway," Campbell said.

The decision appears to be a setback, at least momentarily, for the gubernatorial campaign of Republican Bruce Rauner. He has made term limits a touchstone in his campaign to "shake up Springfield."

The Winnetka businessman's group, the Committee for Legislative Reform and Term Limits, proposed sending legislators home after 8 years in office. It would also change the sizes of the House and Senate and make it more difficult for the General Assembly to override a governor's veto.

A Rauner spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
