Officer Johnson making a fool of herself in court

I did a little Google search and found that, in addition to this site of course, Officer Johnson of the Ames Police Department has one other notable mention. It seems that she found drugs on a guy during an illegal search a while back. Arresting a guy and having the court of appeals decide it was an illegal search must be a good source of embarrassment for a cop.

The original link to the court document is now dead.

The best part is her testimony…
Q: You had suspicion that it was drugs?
Officer Johnson: Yes.
Q: You didn’t have probable cause?
Officer Johnson: Correct.

So she was not only horrible on the stand; she also admitted to some pretty dishonorable police action. It raises the question of why she knowingly conducted an illegal search.
