Buckeye confusion

Yahoo! Sports frames this story of an older couple getting pulled over by hyperactive cops acting out their SWAT team fantasies as just a humorous anecdote, which I suppose it is on some level.

At the same time, it is not illegal to have a sticker of a marijuana leaf on your car, and such a sticker surely does not constitute probable cause for pulling someone over. It is also very illegal for the police to suggest that the people remove the sticker from the car when they have every right to display it, whether it be buckeye or weed. If the poor buckeyes could remember which police department pulled them over, they could probably make some well-deserved money in a lawsuit, while also teaching the locals a lesson or two.

Scary, sad and stupid, all at once.
