Perhaps sensitive is not the correct term.  We were told that blood testing would detect marijuana usage for about 6 months prior while a urine test would not do so.

Traffic accidents are the leading cause of death for cops these days. Not exactly surprising given the amount of driving they do, but I'm sure the absolute asshole driving practices many cops routinely demonstrate in non-emergency situations doesn't help.

Hair tests would provide a pretty long window as well.

I think it's the opposite but not 6 months. THC is stored in your fat and is slowly release as metabolites. That comes out in urine. Blood test will tell if you're high at the moment.

If I can channel gibonious for a minute, you don't know he looked before he started crossing the street. It's pure speculation! On a more serious note, I'd think that he if saw the car beforehand and knew he was trying to beat it, he would have been looking at it as he ran across.

And I don't know about you, but I never assume incoming traffic is going the speed limit, given how people drive.

Btw, I agree with 'Turk the order to step out of the car was lawful. I just don't like cops shouting that all the time as I believe it's a tactic to coerce compliance when the order is not lawful. Shout at someone ten times, "OBEY MY LAWFUL ORDER!!!, " get compliance, then ask if they can search the car. The person's will has been broken and they will then agree to what would have otherwise been an unlawful search.

If it's anything like the police around here, he probably took full disability for a strained ankle and then went out and got another job.

At least half the news reports about this have made Breaking Bad references. It's wonderful.
