    Yes Chris, a lot of people think it's aggravating, including myself, but everybody should also realize that the officer has to do all this, and they should realize it's for the purpose of public safety. Way to go Washington Police! Keep this raper behind bars and away from children.

    No matter what state the law is in they should all be able to speak with each other more so than what they can do. A person that has done something in one state and with in hours can be more than just a few states away. So by them having better communication with each other more thugs will be off the street's. I know of one person who just because of tickets spent 180 days in prison just because he did not pay one. They caught up to him when he was riding with another person and done a check. Just think how many crimes could be cleaned up with a simple stop. Good job for the law keep it up.

    Maybe Rufus Huggins will call a meeting for this fine young man and explain how he is just a victim and it's not his fault!

    Maybe some more people should read this story.. This is the reason when you are stopped for a simple traffic law violation that you have to produce drivers license, etc.. I know no one likes to be stopped by the police, and think that laws like seatbelts, registration, etc are all "BS". One less bad guy on the streets for now, good work guys!
