This past weekend I took a trip through the gold country down to Angels Camp and across to Stockton. We were in my friend's Porsche 911. After a nice cruise through the foothills, we stopped in Sutter Creek for a late lunch and I noticed a guy in a pickup eyeing the car while we ate. Before leaving town we stopped to get gas and the same guy pulled in just behind us. He never came up to the pump island and never got out of the F-150, just watched and talked on a flip up cell phone. About 20 minutes down the road we were pulled over by CHP, the officer announcing on the PA, "Driver, open the door with your right hand and step out of the car. Walk backwards to my car. Passenger, open the door with your left-hand and walk backwards to my car." He proceeded to pat us down, seat us in the back of his SUV and search the Porsche, no consent, no warrant and no articulable suspicion. He never called for back up and refused to tell us why we had been pulled over, beyond, "You guys and the car match the description of a suspicious prowler." My friend is a lawyer and is filling a foia request for all the call logs, but why in the world would a "public servant" risk a fat salary, benefits and pension just to hassle someone with a nice car?
