So I suppose now we see if the Judge decides to rule on if the drug charges, weapons violation, and a front side window tint citation will be thrown out. It is looking like it will be. I don't like drugs or serious crime, but it is necessary for a few of the guilty to get off in order to keep the rest of us safe from a perverted government.

Yeah, we won't get into the details of politics/social stuff like a small amount of marijuana like this guy had, but after reading the article, it sounds like a classic cop move: Make up some BS claim in order to pull someone over.

How many thousands of times has this played out over the decades?

And, the one political thing I WILL say is this: we have rights, here in the USA, from the Constitution and Bill of Rights. And it is the nature of government to infringe on those rights; to seek more power. When it comes to driving in our cars, having documentation from a video is so, so important! Whether we agree about this guy having marijuana being bad or good, what matters is that it could be any of us that gets pulled over because a cop makes up a BS claim like not using a blinker, dark tint can't see the driver, failure to fully stop at a stop sign, etc.

I'm not carrying anything illegal in my car with me, but NO, No Sir, you can not stop and search me because you 'felt' like it and made up a BS claim.

There is no mention in the article of a weapons related charge, simply that they found a 9mm Taurus in the search.
AFAWK this man is only guilty of tint and possession of marijuana, neither of which I would call a serious crime. (But thats my opinion)

@Riptide - Here's what I found online.

Defendant was charged in state court with having a weapon under disability, carrying a concealed weapon, improper transportation of a firearm in a motor vehicle, drug paraphernalia, and drug possession. Id. He was also cited for having car window tint in violation of Ohio Revised Code § 4513.241 ("Rules governing materials used in windshields and windows; exceptions; records") and improper change of course in violation of Cincinnati Municipal Code § 506-80 ("Changing Course of or Stopping Vehicle"). Id. While these states charges were pending,1 the Government adopted the case for federal prosecution. Id. On February 13, 2019, a Grand Jury indicted Defendant on one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 922(g)(1). (Doc. 1). Defendant filed the pending Motion to Suppress. (Doc. 18). On September 11, 2019, a Grand Jury returned a single-count superseding indictment against Defendant for violation of the same statute. (Doc. 27).
I'm not a lawyer, so I don't fully understand what it all means. I believe that the Judge's ruling means that all evidence will be suppressed.

In light of the foregoing, it is hereby ORDERED that Defendant's Motion to Suppress (Doc. 18) is GRANTED.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

Looks to me like he just got out of all of the weapons charges.
