Just try to search Darnell Dockett's car without a warrant -- we dare you.
Darnell Dockett, the Arizona Cardinals oft out-tweeted defensive lineman, apparently was pulled over by police this morning. It seems they wanted to search his car. They must not have known that cops never search Darnell Dockett's car without a warrant. Never.

Dockett, well-known for landing himself in trouble in Twitter-town (lest we forget the scandalous shower pics), "tweeted" 11 times during the traffic stop, the majority of which were 140-character vignettes about how he feels about warrant-less police searches.

We'll reiterate: Darnell Dockett never lets cops search his car without a warrant. Never.

See Dockett's Twitter rant below.

 Yesooo, I am proud of my natural black lace wigs, but there is no way that I am ready to spend 3 hours or more of my life through the rigors of making it presentable. My hair is natural all the way (I do relax my front wigsand never have) but there is not much I can do with natural hair shoulder length without looking like a woman parading newly disturbed "Ahiaeke. " I give kudos to thoes who have no qualms to relax their hair extensions or thoes who spend up to 6 hours braiding wigs and keep for months without washing every week.

Yeah, but if they arrest you for DUI they can search your car w/o a warrant, they did that to me. BTW my blood alcohol 0.0,   later they dismissed all charges. I don't fear the criminals, I fear the cops

I'm a Florida Gator fan and despise Dockett, but he is totally right about this. Never let the cops search your car. If you are not allowed to leave, ask them to explain why you are under arrest, and for what? Ask if you can leave if you are not under arrest. Never let them into your trunk or car. Never.

Good for you, Darnell.  There is absolutely no reason to talk to the cops, ever.  Nothing you say can help - it's considered hearsay and not admissible - and "anything you say can and will be used against you."  Same applies here.  Screw them.  They either get a warrant, or let you go about your business.  

The only thing Dockett could have done is not drive while black.

who?
who?

Good for you. Doesn't matter how many it only takes ONE....1 incident where they lie and do you wrong to not trust'em any more......

Someone remind this idiot NFL player that you don't always need a warrant to search a vehicle. Another moron that thinks he knows everything about the law.

In 2001 My INS ex, her Bored-Her Patrol Boyfriend, DPS and MCSO illegally searched my car. I don't have Darnell Dockett Millions to sue so they cuffed and locked me in the back of a MCSO cruiser with the windows up, a criminal offense if done to an animal or child; fair play when detaining a DWB motorist. The boyfriend pulled a gun on me in the process, and the four police agencies got together and cooked up a story of how these heavily armed and backed up officers were threatened by a unarmed guy who was just picking up his kid for the weekend. Glad but sad to see that I am not the only victim of Arizona Law Enforcement profiling.

Of course, there's no evidence (yet, 6pm Monday) that this really happened -- it could just be DD having fun with us or his cop neighbor next door.

I agree with Darnell on this issue. I was wrongfully arrested in 2006 for a crime I didn't commit and the fucking cops lied on the report, it was a great piece of fiction.

Also in 2008, my wife was arrested by Coolidge Police for a DUI that never even occurred because she never started the car, never moved the car and never left the parking lot. When I got to her location the car was cold. When we got the report the Coolidge PD said she was speeding 55 in a 35, failing to stop at a stop sign and DUI. So yeah the cops lie alot.

Social media hasn't encouraged Mr. Dockett to improve his professional image, I'm afraid.

Someone posted that cops don't allow cops to search without a warrant. Very true. I wouldn't let a cop search my car and I have no contraband of any sort in any of my vehicles. It's just one of those things that when a cop has probable cause, they don't have to ask to search, if contraband is in plain sight, or a K9 has alerted on the smell of drugs or explosives.

If asked, "Do you mind if I take a look inside your car?", my answer would be "Yes, I do mind. Please feel free to obtain a search warrant if you like to look inside my car, and bring a video camera with you to record the search, please".

I ain't passed the bar but I know a little bit, enough that you want to illegally search my shit.  See the glove box's locked and so's the trunk in back, and I know my rights, so you gonna need a warrant for that. 

Well we'll see how smart you are when the K-9 comes.I got 99 Problems But a Bitch Ain't One!

Who said you couldn't learn your rights from a Jay-Z song?

Good for Darnell.  Everyone who stands up for his Constitutional rights makes it easier for the rest of us to do so.

There are seven ways to search a car without a warrant.  Think you're hot shit, james, please list them for us.

This "idiot" got it right - never give permission.

NEVER NEVER NEVER give permission to search your car.

He didn't, and you know what - the police didn't search his car.

Good on you, Darnell Dockett, for standing up to the police.

You need to brush up on the definition of "Probable Cause", obviously they did not have it in this case.

you know!

They obviously did this time because they didn't. You look more like an idiot and are probably a moron cop or have a brother, uncle or boyfriend that is one.

So, your 6th grade reading competency has failed you, and the part where he was detained for an hour, no citation issued and no detainment whatsoever is not an indication that Mr. Dockett has committed no crime and that ARIZONA LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS ONCE AGAIN ABUSED THEIR POWER.

Pity, that is. While trying to find fault with Mr. Dockett's exercising his constitutional rights you too have made a fool of yourself, just like the officers you so vehemently defend. Forgive my amusement at your ignorance....

because they don't know how to look. They love to tear peoples stuff up and put stuff you didn't have in your car, in there. They are crooked @$...les. to top it off, there was no need, write a ticket and as Darnell said get the ....outta here........

Fuck that, "big fella." Don't let them have a look because they have no right to have a look. Are you so tired of your rights that you're eager to give them away?

I hide everything from the police on general principles. Why should I want to help out someone who's trying to mess up my day?

Look at every officer who has ever had legal trouble, guilty or not they will not do or say anything without an attorney present.  Darnell was well within his rights to deny a search of his vehicle.

Because they can plant something or lie on their police report. I have had the police outright lie on police reports on two different occasions, so I know it happens. Fortunately my paralegal college courses paid off and I found the law that stated my actions were perfectly legal. I also do not have anything to hide but why invite problems into your life because of over zealous cops that do not know the law as well as they think they do. I also read a report that had evidence that police agencies do not hire police recruits with IQs that were too high, the report stating that a 130 IQ would disqualify one from police service. Sad to know that with my 140 IQ that I am smarter than the cops and add to that my streetwise knowledge that I really have them trumped when it comes to thinking intelligently.

Thank you, but I didn't make it to the 6th grade. Perhaps you need to read my post again, or have someone explain it to you. I wasn't defending cops in any way, shape or form. But thanks for jumping to the gun....

IQ 140 and you went to Paralegal College?

Under-achieve much?

Just teasing - good on you to take up the fight.

The police are often our heroes, but sometimes they are our worst enemies. You never know who's a good cop (most are) and who's bad (enough are to be cautious.)

Treat them all with courtesy and respect, but ALWAYS decline to be interviewed, ALWAYS decline to give consent FOR ANYTHING.

you know!
you know!

Great point. Wonder what would happen if they searched police officers cars? probably find all kinds of illegal shit they use to plant on people............if you think I'm lieing, look up several cases the NEWTIMES published. it shows you clear video of a male and female officer laughing and going in the trunk for a pipe..........just dirty....don't trust em
