R.I.P. 4th Amendment: Federal Judge Says Police Were Justified In Stopping, Searching 25 Cars At Gunpoint, In Search For Suspect

Posted on October 27, 2012


Colorado (Alan Gathright-The Denver Channel) – A federal judge has ruled that Aurora police didn’t violate the law when they stopped 25 cars, detaining dozens of drivers and passengers at gunpoint, until they caught a suspected bank robber in a SUV last June.

The June traffic stop at East Iliff Avenue and South Buckley Road triggered a barrage of criticism from innocent motorists who said police  blocked their cars while officers with shotguns and rifles went car-by-car, pulling out people at gunpoint and handcuffing them.

“Cops came in from every direction and just threw their car in front of my car,” said Sonya Romero, who was one of the drivers handcuffed, told 7NEWS at the time. “We all got cuffed until they figured out who did what.”

“We didn’t know if we were in the line of fire or what the hell was happening,” Romero said.
