I was at a friends birthday party last night in the top level of a bar in Civic that looks out over one of the back alleys. About halfway through the night I noticed a group of people gathered around the window, so I moseyed on over to see what was so interesting.
In the alley were about 8 police officers opening and searching cars at random. They were even opening the boots and rummaging through there as well. When they looked up and noticed about 15 faces watching them, the head honcho, in what I can only assume was an attempt to shoo us away, shined the torch at us and gave us all a bit of a scowl.
(“Quick sarge, hit ’em with the torch!” “No, not the torch! Arrrrrrrrrgh!” etc.)
So anyhow, is that legal or what?
