73. For future reference, NEVER give up your fourth amendment rights
When asked by a cop if he can search your car, ALWAYS answer, "I do not consent to unwarranted searches."

ALWAYS do that, regardless of the fact that you know they'll find nothing. In fact, you should refuse consent ESPECIALLY if you know they will find nothing.

Warrants require probable cause. IF the cop goes to the trouble to attempt to get a warrant, and one is granted, you own that cop, the issuing judge, and the entire jurisdiction you are in. You will win in a civil court every time. most likely, the jurisdiction will settle out of court. If the cop searches without a warrant, your settlement will be even larger.
