People in high places to ordinary people who live and work there know the truth and they are grateful for the video evidence in this case.

    Councilwoman Dorothy “Dot” Williams, who has been serving for 24 years, said she gets the same recurring complaint from constituents. They were pulled over for not signaling, for a registration tag that wasn’t visible or for a broken taillight – then asked to consent to a search.
