What To Do When The K9 Comes

What To Do When The K9 Comes

Dozens of citizens have reported this method worked and it has also worked for me on one occasion.

Anytime a K-9 is deployed to search your auto, announce loudly and boldly that you are aware police can make their K-9 false alert and you know what a true alert looks like. This scares the officer and after hearing your stance, he will usually walk his dog around the auto and then leave.

To learn the difference in a false alert and true alert, watch the two, ten second videos here. One is a true alert and one is a false alert.

About Barry Cooper

"You may have seen him on the pages of Maxim, or during one of his many appearances on CNN, Fox News and Spike TV. He’s the cop who turned against the drug war. In American pop culture right now, there’s nobody quite like him. As one of the former top drug cops working the Texas highways, he was ferocious, bringing down hundreds of people for possessing even tiny amounts of an illegal substance. In his new life as a humanitarian crusader and activist filmmaker, he’s just as ferocious. Cooper is on a mission to free America’s pot prisoners. In the terminology of war, Barry is an insurgent, lobbing bombs into the fourth estate as his form of penance for all the people he put behind bars on drug offenses.”—True/Slant Barry recently starred with Woody Harrelson, 50 Cent, Eminem and Susan Sarandon in the anti drug war documentary, “How To Make Money Selling Drugs.” His internet fame via his website has received global attention by being reported in Rolling Stones, High Times, a feature in Maxim Magazine and a front cover feature in Cannabis Culture and the Texas Observer. His story was picked as a feature on NPR’s, This American Life. He has been a guest on scores of cable news channels discussing the Drug War. He has also appeared as a drug and legal expert in five episodes of SPIKE TV’s reality show, MANSWERS.

    Interesting blog Barry. Was wondering if you could answer a question for me. Can K-9s smell drugs inside a person?

    The only problem with that is, here in Lake City, FL (Columbia County) the law enforcement is so corrupt (and I am a former Police Officer from up North) that if you say that to a Officer here in this County they will then arrest you for resisting an officer and then even if you don’t have Marijuana on you they will plant it. This has happen on numerous occasions to many people I know. Here in Lake City, FL Columbia County if you do not corporate 100% you will be tased and you will be arrested.
