  • Research Dothard v. Rawlinson and discuss the decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.  Do you agree with their reasoning?  Why or Why not?

  • A citizen who is complaining about speeders on her street has just contacted you.  She wants something done.  You are still talking to her when you see a car traveling at a high rate of speed past you.  You follow and initiate a traffic stop.  When you make contact with the driver, she tells you her gas pedal was stuck, and she was trying to loosen it.  After you obtain her license and check with dispatch on its status, you see that she has no previous violations.  What do you do and why?
