Film as Accomplice

It's an unfortunate fact that the words "illegal window tint" appear in a large number of police reports nationwide. Polling daily news reports from around the country will provide an exhausting number of incidents. Illegal tint is so closely associated with "suspicious vehicles," that officers frequently admit it is one of their number one tools for identifying potential criminals.

Here's a condensed list of what has surfaced in recent days:

Westport, Conn.-Christopher Sharpe was charged with operation while under the influence and a window tint violation … Denver, Colo.-a man was contacted on U.S. Hwy 36 for having illegal tint on his front windshield. During the investigation it was determined that the man and a woman passenger had marijuana and cocaine in the vehicle. Both were arrested … Cincinatti, Ohio-what began as a traffic stop for a tint violation ended in the use of a taser. When one Mount Healthy police officer pulled over a car for a window tint violation, the driver initially stopped, but then took off. When Cincinnati officers joined the pursuit, the car ended up crashing into a utility pole about a mile away where officers used a taser on the driver before taking him into custody. A basic window tint violation swiftly grew to include charges for failure to comply, reckless operation and driving under suspension … Greeneville, Tenn.-Michael T. Lacik was charged with underage driving while impaired after a traffic stop for violating the window-tint law. Bond was set at $1,000 … Akron, Ohio-officers patrolling Interstate 77 stopped the driver of a vehicle with illegal window tint, but the driver was also found to have an expired temporary license. He was arrested for driving under suspension … the list goes on and on …
