    Apparently you can't even carry cash on you? The guy basically got robbed by the police! It's funny they want to split it 80/20. Anyways I just posted this cause it kinda tweaked my noodle. WTF.....

    The I-10 corridor that runs along the Gulf coast is also bad for doing this type of robbery.

    Never, never-ever carry cash in the USA. Except small personal sums. Plastic is the way to go. Though I've had police/customs try to steal my credit-cards before as well. It's all from the Federal Forfeiture Act: They take your money. They will give it back as soon as you can prove you have never sold drugs to anyone ever. Think you can? Nope - you can't prove a negative. And you don't have to be charged with any crime - they see money? They take it. Poof!

    I can agree, recently i've heard of corrupt cops actually seizing high end cars in the Louisiana section of I-10 never had any trouble traveling I-10 myself but one needs to stay wary for sure.

    Yes when SWIM would have drugs in the car on the New Jersey Turnpike. He would keep them in a fake can of WD 40 that had a secret compartment. This would be with other junk in the trunk with greese on it. He would also have a doctors bag and a stethoscope on the passanger seat. And a Bible in the car as well. He was just a good Christian doctor.

    When SWIM worked in a clinic in New Jersey he treated a lot of cops. The clinic saw cops for injuries. Well in New Jersey they had these "get out of jail" cards that the cops gave to their friends. They were called "courtesy cards". If you got pulled over when the cop asked for your license you would also give them the card. The card waw signed on the back by the cop that gave it. Now it was best to have one signed by a captain or what ever. aIt usually stopped the cop right in his tracks.

    But the state cops would not be as willing to accept the cards. For them you needed the big gold Naew Jersey State FOP shield on your back window. It was a big metal thing that stuck on with suction cups. It had an ID number on it and you had to have a corresponding ID card. If you did not you could be in trouble legally. It was for police officers families and special friends only. They were rare. A cop gave SWIM one. It worked perfectly. You could speed and you would not get pulled over as the thing was so visible from a long way away. :)

    A friend who i can no longer identify once told me that most money will have traces of cocaine on it for some reason or another, and if that is true then of course having 85,000+ dollars would have easily detectable levels...thats awesome ain't it? Also i like how even though the drug dogs indicated there were drugs in the car, No Drugs were Found....

    we believe criminal activity is going on so we have to take your money, oh no we're not going to arrest you, you're free to go....

    I remember in university my friends chemistry class had an assignment to test bills for cocaine. If I remember correctly some 85% or so tested positive. The professor said this was not a particularly high figure.

    The tests used, I repeat, will show a positive with laundry detergent. And a thousand other things as well. It's a shakedown pure & simple. Bills fresh from a bank will show positive unless they are straight from the printing-presses.

    They've been playing this game since the 1980's.
