There is a clear reasoning behind this for officer safety, which is valid, and for reasonable suspicion, again at the discretion of the officer. The law isn't so much the issue, or the ruling by the court -which I think is unfortunately correct, its the unintended consequences of the law and the abuse that it will harbor in in regard to civil liberties and whittling down of amendments for future generations.
Well said.

To add a little detail here, the probable cause was odd behavior from the passengers (they were turned around in the back seat looking at the cops intently... [rolleyes]) and secondly they were in full blue crips regalia head to toe in a gang dominated territory.
If a cop stops a car that looks like a crip gunship, I wouldn't blame them for searching the passenger too.
