Tennessee Cops Harass Old Lady After Mistaking Buckeye Bumper Sticker for Pot Leaf Bumper Sticker

courtesy of www.sbx-osu.comcourtesy of www.sbx-osu.comIf you thought the war on drugs couldn't get any dumber, then you aren't using your imagination. Last week, the former president of the Dallas-Fort Worth Ohio State Alumni Club was pulled over in Tennessee while driving from her mother-in-law's funeral in Ohio back to Texas. The reason? Tennessee police mistook the Buckeyes sticker on her ride for a pot leaf sticker, and thought it meant she was trafficking drugs (because people do that). The Columbus Dispatch reports:   

They were in the westbound lanes of I-40, a few miles east of Memphis, when a black police SUV with flashing lights pulled them over, Bonnie Jonas-Boggioni said. A second black SUV soon pulled up behind the first one.

“Knowing I wasn’t speeding, I couldn’t imagine why,” she said.

Two officers approached, one on each side of the car.

“They were very serious,” she said. “They had the body armor and the guns.”

Because the couple’s two schnauzers were barking furiously, one of the officers had Jonas-Boggioni exit the car so he could hear her better.

“What are you doing with a marijuana sticker on your bumper?” he asked her.

She explained that it is actually a Buckeye leaf decal, just like the ones that Ohio State players are given to put on their helmets to mark good plays.

“He looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language,” she said.

At that point, Boggioni got out of the car to show that he was wearing a commemorative sweatshirt from the 2002 national-championship season, complete with a Buckeye leaf.

The officer then explained that someone from outside his jurisdiction — apparently another officer — had spotted the leaf sticker and thought it might indicate that the car was carrying marijuana, Jonas-Boggioni said.

Before they let her go on her way, the officers advised Jonas-Boggioni to remove the decal from her car.

“I said, ‘You mean in Tennessee?’ and he said, ‘No, permanently.’

Jonas-Boggioni refused to take down the sticker, saying, "This little old lady is no drug dealer." Good for her, standing up to those idiots. And if it had been a pot leaf? Turns out that's not reason enough to pull someon over, according to a spokeswoman for the West Tennessee Drug Task Force. Perhaps she should tell her officers?

    I wonder if there are grounds for a First and Fourth Amendment lawsuit?

    Even if it was a cannabis leaf, displaying it is Ms Jonas-Boggioni's right and I do not think doing so constitutes grounds for reasonable search and seizure.

    At least they didn't shoot the schnauzers. (My first thought when I read about the dogs barking was "Oh, oh."

  • From the Tundra||

    Yep, that was the only part of this that didn't get my rage going (again). I think you know the answer to the lawsuit question, though: procedures were followed...

    They have their own internal immigration issues and have had for years.

    There just are not a lot of jobs there, in my field, compared to a lot of other areas in the country.

    As a prank a few years back, I put an OSU license plate frame on a friend's truck, who is a huge Michigan fan. Put it on a few days before the game, and he lived right down the street from the big house.

    I've read this post twice and laughed out loud both times.

  • SIV||

    Back when I was a snot-nosed punk people actually drove around with those fake Florida "Arrive Stoned" plates on the front of their cars. While they were carrying and smoking weed too. Despite the recent progress out West, marijuana sure seemed a lot closer to being legalized in '78-81 than it does most places now.

  • SIV||

    For all you snot-nosed punks today the real FL plates said "Arrive Alive". And for those of you who live in two-plate states your government is slightly more greedy and tyrannical than single-plate states.

  • From the Tundra||

    I agree with you SIV. Early 80s seemed pretty relaxed to me. Cops seemed to get more excited about catching us with beer (funny, it always ended up their trunks).

    Not only does our greedy and tyrannical government here in MN love double plates, we had ridiculously high registration fees (based on the MSRP of the car, naturally) until one Jesse "The Body" came in and instituted a flat fee. He also got rid of inspections, too. I miss that guy.

  • Tulpa (LAOL-PA)||

    What's tyrannical about two plates instead of one? Makes it much easier to ID the vehicle that hit and ran.

  • Virginian||

    Uh, if he hit and run he's probably driving away. I mean don't get me wrong, if we're going to have license plates two isn't substantively more burdensome then one, but I think the rear plate is the one that's most useful.

    I'm in Oklahoma, which is a two plate state (I'm pretty sure), but several little old ladies in my town have "JESUS" on the front. They don't seem to get pulled over for the substitution.

  • Ornithorhynchus||

    Oklahoma is a single-plate state. You must not've been here very long.

    We have a lot of tribal plates here in Oklahoma. The State fought for years to try to force the tribes to stop issuing them. But the tribes kept winning in court. I think the State finally gave up.
    It's always fun to hear State officials cry when they lose one of their monopolies.

  • John C. Randolph||

    C'mon Virginian, havent you ever seen someone flee the scene of an accident in reverse?

    Tulpa....its a fucking scam to make drivers pay 2x for plates. That is all. It doesnt make Id'ing anyone any easier.

    You teach right?

  • Wind Rider||

    Nah, I think it's cause the cops are lazy. As the plates have raised letters and numbers, the concept is to be able to tell who hit someone by the stamp on the victim's ass.

    Unfortunately, the cops' inability to read reverse letters turned out to be a Rumsfeldian "unknown unknown". . .

  • Sevo||

    I guess, but the comment still made me sputter.

    I dunno. I've read a lot of stories about dealers getting pulled over because they're speeding or have a burnt out taillight.........

  • SIV||

    I don't know about just east of Memphis but just west of Nashville on I-40 good luck figuring out who pulls you over. Tennessee municipalities rent out there cops to the jurisdiction that actually encompasses a short stretch of the interstate and they split the civil forfeiture "take".They are driving unmarked, black and obscured-marked vehicles. I think they fight over who gets to pull over westbound Mexicans in nice pickups (they are after cash,not drugs).

  • Aresen||

    You have a choice:

    a) Believe the little old lady.

    b) Believe the police.

  • SIV||

    On the I-40 your "drug interdiction" cops are somewhere between mercenaries and highway robbers.That is no cop-hatin' libertarian hyperbole either.

    I was sitting in the gun shop the other day bemoaning the fact that there are no guns or ammo to be had when in walks a city detective and sits down across from me. The place is always crawling with cops because the owner is politically connected and has run several successful campaigns for local politicians, including the sheriff. Thus, I know most of the upper level cops. This guy was new.

    I had brought in a k98 that still has swastikas all over it and it was laying on the table. The detective struck up a conversation with me about the rifle. It took me all of three seconds to estimate his IQ at about 85. After he left I turned to my buddy, the owner, and opened my mouth to say something to that effect, but he cut me off. " Dont make fun uh him, he caint help it" was all he said. So, I left it alone.

    Yeah, most cops are idiots, but this level of dumbfuckery is hard to believe. Even worse is the case of the 5000 daisies.

Also jumping the starter with a screwdriver......kids always get the pain-in-the-ass chores. These were no small things in Tucson in the summer.

    The irony is that he owned that car because he believed no one would ever break into it or steal it.

    A million, a billion, a trillion. Money means nothing to gamblers. It is just fuel for their addiction, if you want to call it an addiction. It has no value outside of that. Still, a billion dollars??? Wow.

    I had a girlfriend who nagged and nagged for me to take her to a casino. I finally relented. As we walked down the gangway to the boat I waived a 100 in front of her and said " If you walk out of here with more money than you walked in with, I will give you this.".

    She went to a quarter slot machine. She put in a quarter and lost. She put in another one and lost. She put a third in and won 4 quarters back. She scooped them up and said " Lets go."

    I gave her the hundred dollar bill and she took my arm and we walked out both with a big smile. I took her to eat at Robbie G's. Crawfish boil. God I love crawfish.....and her ass. Her ass was a work of art.

    40lbs of steaming hot crawfish, corn and potatoes are poured out on a table and doused with copious amounts of salt and cayenne pepper.

    You dive in and peel by hand as you eat. When I say copious amounts, what I mean is that after peeling a few dozen mudbugs you will have globs of wet cayenne pepper all over your hands. Your hands and mouth will be burning. You will be sweating profusely. Afterwards you can wash and wash and wash all you like, but you still need to use great caution when using the restroom. Sex is kinda out of the question.

    I suppose you could have sex but it would preclude the use of your hands and mouth and.....well that takes 95% of the fun out of it.

    Speaking of peppers, got some jerky drying in the dehydrator right now. It's a spicy teryiaki with thai pepper. One thing I do, when I make jerky is to dry it a bit to much then seal it in a container with some of my quartered homegrown habaneros and ghost chilis. The jerky sucks up the water in the peppers and tenderizes a bit bringing out a fresh pepper flavor and a bit of heat. Shit is awesome.

    "Shit is awesome."

    No kidding. I will be trying that this very weekend. That really sounds good. Thank you very much for that.

    Just pulled the jerky and cut the peppers. I figured the peppers wouldn't be too hot 'cause of the cold window they're in (and it' dark at 5pm). The ghost pepper I cut was fucking hot as shit, my face and hands are still burning a bit *2 hrs later*

    need to go buy beer...

    And if she had made the wrong move she could have been shot.

    and it would have been justified.

    so, serious question who are these officers and why are they still on the street and how long until they get fired?

    because I know if I were the police chief, I wouldn't want officers that dumb working for me.

    You underestimate the value of having idiot underlings who will do anything you command.

    One of the more obscure ones was named Lando. But was in a bad period and he's not all the memorable. Except for building a power station over a gaseous planet.

    Cant sleep and obviously bored cuz I am reading this shit;

    Headline; Man stabbed after refusing to change positions during threesome -
    When one man wouldn't swap positions during a threesome with a female acquaintance, the other man pulled out a butcher knife and stabbed him.

    The first question that popped in my head was " Pulled it out of where?"

    Yeah, a bunch of stone-age buffoons who cant even fake a photograph are gonna build super jets and intercontinental ballistic missles tipped with nuclear warheads. Yeah, I am buying that.

    That looks a lot like the fiberglass F-16 on the go-kart chassis that my kid likes to sit in every year at the California State Fair.

  • John Galt||

    The F-313, so apparently we're to believe they made 312 other fake fighters before this one.

    Cyto told me that if we let Iran's photoshopping skills exceed our own, then the next step will be the invasion of the US by the muslim hordes.

    The average American, if he survived the invasion and subsequent torture, would be turned into a slave for muslim jihadists.

    You better get serious about this shit, man.

    "“He looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language,” she said."

    She was. She was speaking non-retard.

    That's obviously a big pot leaf. And one large blackberry. And a big "O" must mean she voted for Obama or something. Yeah, I'd pull her over. That big "O" is just begging for harassment.

    When I was a truck driver I literally had to hold my nose while driving through certain parts of the South.

    By far the worse smell I've ever smelled while driving was Baltimore.

  • sloopyinca||

    Baltimore stinks like ass, but have you ever been through Covington (VA)? That's one smelly stretch of road.*

    *The upside was that it was the halfway point to Snowshoe when I lived in Roanoke.

  • JW||

    Portland, ME. I was there in the late 80's and the whole fucking city smelled like armpit funk.

    She explained that it is actually a Buckeye leaf decal, just like the ones that Ohio State players are given to put on their helmets to mark good plays.

    “He looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language,” she said.

    At that point, Boggioni got out of the car to show that he was wearing a commemorative sweatshirt from the 2002 national-championship season, complete with a Buckeye leaf.

    In the officer's defense there's no quality football in Tennessee and hasn't been in nearly two decades. Hell, if she'd have had a football sticker on her car, he probably would have mistaken it for a pot brownie.

    IOW, the SEC sucks outside the states of Alabama, Florida (recently) and Louisiana (recently).

    O-H...

    Must have also thought that big "O" was short for "O, that sweet sticky weed which I enjoy and happening to be trafficking right at this very moment."

    When is America going to stop wasting time and money on the drug war? Talk about government failure, I understand that even ex-President Carter calls this an unwinnable war!

    Are there so many government employees and bureaucrats with time on their hands that they have nothing better to do but harass innocent citizens?

  • Redmanfms||

    I'm against the WoD, but Carter is a fucking moron.

  • GankFonk||

    Dude is talking a whole lot of smack over there man.
