WTF?!?! Did you agree to the search? They legally aren't allowed to without cause unless you consent (and they know most people think they don't have a choice)
No, I gave no consent. Luckily I am extremely educated in the subject so I don't think I will have any problems in court. They charged me with possession of 4 different substances including a 0.2 of Marijuana which was not even in a baggy, but on the floor. The supposed "GHB" that was found was actually just water... the officer looked through over 15 water bottles and was somehow SURE that the last one he picked was half full with GHB.. I seriously could not believe my eyes. I am awaiting the lab results to clear that specific charge before it gets to court.
What angers me the most is that they knew I was coming from zone, and mentioned it several times in the interview. I was profiled plain and simple, and I honestly wish I had the time and money to take this case further but all I want is for this to be cleared and my life to move on. What they did was 100% against the law, I had no drugs visible nor did I give them ANY reason to instigate a search. They never asked before or after if my vehicle could be searched, and all the drugs were found inside of it. My lawyer says I am in a good situation but regardless I can't help feel like an idiot for leaving zone with illegal substances. I've taken this as a huge life lesson and will definitely smarten up when it comes to what I do and where I go.
Hope to see some of you guys back at zone after my breach is done.. until than, have fun and be safe everyone. I'll still be @ Guv every sat!
The Comfort Zone is a behavioral state within which a person operates in an anxiety-neutral condition, using a limited set of behaviors to deliver a steady level of performance, usually without a sense of risk. A person's personality can be described by his or her comfort zones. Highly successful persons may routinely step outside their comfort zones, to accomplish what they wish. A comfort zone is a type of mental conditioning that causes a person to create and operate mental boundaries. Such boundaries create an unfounded sense of security. Like inertia, a person who has established a comfort zone in a particular axis of his or her life, will tend to stay within that zone without stepping outside of it. To step outside a person's comfort zone, they must experiment with new and different behaviors, and then experience the new and different responses that then occur within their environment.
