It's not illegal to ride a bike on a sidewalk, is it?

Under Z, the discovery of the heroin syringe may be inadmissible in court due to an illegal stop.

Not sure, but the needle in the neck story is N-A-S-T-Y.

"Stopped driver with defective brake light and arrested him for possession of narcotics"... Really? Sounds like the 4th amendment isn't doing so well. I'm sure us taxpayers don't mind footing the bill for some violation of the constitution, anyway. Thanks Shoreline PD!
