@pzmyers FWIW I got pulled over for "obstruction of view" (the legal term for having anything hanging from the rear view mirror of a car) when borrowing my friend/roommate's SUV back in 2008 while passing Bettendorf, Iowa on I-80. He'd hung a lei on the rear view mirror and I never took it off. Just like Daunte Wright, they stopped me for that as justification for searching the car for drugs.

The difference: I'm white so I didn't get shot. In fact I got off with a warning when it was all over.
