SLOPD’s stunt

San Luis ObispoJanuary 14, 2014 

I’d like to put in my two cents worth on the SLOPD publicity stunt involving pulling people over to give them a $15 gift certificate for good driving.

Aside from legitimate liability and Fourth Amendment concerns, the mere thought of being pulled over for no good reason by a highly paid public employee while they are on the clock is repugnant.

It also begs the question of whether or not SLOPD is considerably overstaffed, because it seems they have far too much time on their hands.
