I just find it interesting. I thought the police accessed more on a traffic stop than what they apparently do.Why is it "interesting"? One's criminal history rarely ever establishes probable cause for current incidents. Knowledge of one's past can - in some instances - be used to contribute to reasonable suspicion under the right circumstances. But, knowledge of said past criminal history usually comes from personal knowledge of involved officers, or a readback or display (on a MCT) of local contacts. Running a criminal history in the field is uncommon, and in many/most cases (like ours out here) generally verboten per law and policy. Local contacts and records are not the same as state or federal CORI/III files (criminal histories).
