      According to the Supreme Court a police officer can make a traffic stop if he has, “Reasonable suspicion a crime is afoot”.

      Obviously his training and experience has worked as it’s supposed to as his suspicion was correct.

      Although it’s funny. Instead of bashing the criminal that was illegally carrying a firearm you jumped right in on questioning the police officer. The police don’t try their cases in the media they do it in court. Of course the news isn’t going to have all the details.

    Need more enforcement of the law and less of SR’s viewpoint,that anything goes in the ghetto.Drug dealing,prostitution,robbery and murder that goes unchecked,leads to more of it…and it spreads to other areas as well.Good job GR Police.
