    This LEO's 11 yrs as a cop should have recognized donut reside .. but instead

    http://www.miamiherald.com/news/stat...e92320667.html

    "I recognized through my 11 years of training and experience as a law enforcement officer the substance to be some sort of narcotic," the officer wrote in her report.

    And, of course, it was donut reside ....

    Doughnut glaze mistaken for meth prompts arrested Orlando LAC to weigh lawsuit

    Mr. Rushing, 64, was exiting the parking lot of an Orlando convenience store on the afternoon of Dec. 11 when he was pulled over for failing to make a complete stop and driving over the speed limit, according to arrest documents obtained by the newspaper.
    Cpl. Shelby Riggs-Hopkins asked Mr. Rushing to exit the vehicle after learning he was carrying a licensed and concealed firearm, removed the weapon and then questioned him about “a rock like substance on the floor board where his feet were,” the documents read. “I recognized, through my eleven years of training and experience as a law enforcement officer, the substance to be some sort of narcotic,” she wrote.

    Uhhh, a cop failed to recognize doughnut glaze?

    What's really bad, is that if the state lab would have incorrectly found it positive for drugs this guy would be in prison.

    I am now examining my state's crime lab test methods ... it does not look good for the lab.

    Though I feel sympathy for this person he obviously is not aware of how to avoid jail.

    1. He didn't stop completely. Hope he fixes that.
    2. He did not obey the speed limits. Hope he drives more carefully.
    3. He did not do a proper traffic stop where he opens his window just enough to get the documents exchanged.
    3a. He did not keep his mouth shut.
    3b. He volunteered to have the vehicle searched.
    3c. He did not have a dash cam running.
    3d. He did not keep the receipt for his donuts.
    4. He did not have a lawyer on speed dial
    5. He did not call for a sergeant to be brought to the scene when there was a request to search (everyone has this option).

    Had he done those simple things, or even just item 3-5 he would not have been jailed and he would not have created work for the crime lab and he would not have called into question the actions of an 11 year veteran LEO.

    Shame on him. I think he should give up the idea of suing, he brought this on himself and he should apologize to the officer and he should try to learn some lessons from this.

    maverick, sure the driver wasn't stopped cuz dispatch threw out an open call looking for OLDE drug dealers?

    strip searching a 64 yo alleged drug dealer...ya i see where an 11 year veteran believes that is necessary...

    nothing in the story does it say what happened to the driver's lawfully carried firearm...

    I thought that crime labs where the places that evidence was manufactured.

    Well, I have not seen a test method that can be relied upon yet (in my state).

    Some cops sure do love them some "based on my training and experience" testifyin'. It reminds me of Officer Friendly who couldn't tell a cheap .22 caliber carbine from a rare and expensive 9mm H&K sub-machinegun.

    So what exactly is the "roadside test" that gave the hall monitors the "evidence" of meth possession so they could arrest him?

    These two and the stop would (should?) not have happened.

    That's a simple list of things everyone should know and do.

    Unless you're saying the female cop raped him, lol.

    Let's keep in mind the same officer who claimed doughnut residue was drug residue claimed the two traffic offenses. She may very well have lied about the roadside test results, if so she is a liar. I hope in court his attorneys demand a drug test using the same testing she used is performed before the judge. IF the tests come back that doughnut icing is not drugs she needs to go to jail.
