Your 4th Amendment rights _should_ allow you to say no to the bored, profiling highway cop when he wants to tear apart your car looking for god-knows-what, but some states have loopholes these assholes can use. If you're not doing anything wrong, you don't need to be submissive to their whims and attitudes.
