    I don't live in that #### hole, so doesn't apply to me. However the us constitution still applies....well in theory maybe.

    Amendment IV
    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    I don’t think it applies if someone is in commission of a felony.

    I never said that the weapons charges were felonies.
    Nonetheless he was still brought up on felony evading-and state laws are clear on the matter!

    Some other parts of the country are just as strict or even worse!
    In California the City of Rialto has an ordinance in the books that allows the city to seize and CRUSH an offending vehicle if it is caught street racing! Similar communities in California have ordinances that prohibit being a SPECTATOR to an illegal street race(San Bernardino and Riverside especially come to mind).

    Us constitution applies to all "US Citizens"

    Speeding isn't a felony.

    Evading vs felony evading is just a way to escalate charges

    I was under the impression that TX passed permitless carry so unless he was prohibited from carrying a firearm (convicted felon) he would have been legally allowed to have a firearm.
    That was my point for QUOTE the article for misdemeanor weapon charges.
    Having possession of weapon under disability(Prohibited Person) would be felony gun charges.

    My main issue with all of this is forfeiture is illegal and the government way of puffing their chest out and saying we will do as we want, you must comply tough ####.

    But evading the police after the fact that they caught you is.
    If he hadn’t ran then maybe they would’ve just given him a fine,possibly a date with a judge to determine what if any further sanctions!

    I guess its different by state. Usually here they will not pursue, they already have your plate make model etc. Will just mail you a ticket etc.

    Felony evading Usually involves other factors than speeding. Bank robbery, murder suspect, officer involved shooting etc.

    But rioting, looting, and burning stores down, that is totally acceptable.

    This is the reason why the Texas street racing forfeiture laws were put into place. If you think this activity in a community is ok. That is your right.


    I street raced back in the 90’s. We never did this gangland style crap.
     
    kemosabi49, PoleCrusher and mjd4277 Thank this.
