When I absorbed the context of Dan Christensen’s story (BrowardBulldog.org) Coconut Creek cops won’t be prosecuted for passing law enforcement computer data to friend, it occurred to me that Dan missed the target.
I would think these sort of VIN record requests are done all the time. I also believe the Coconut Creek Police Department wanted to hang Cuddeback out to dry, and to do so, they needed leverage. So, I am guessing, folks in charge ran some blanket database queries (NCIS or the such), stumbled across these VIN inquiries, and thought to themselves, “Bingo!”.
And here’s where Dan (whom I think very highly of) dropped the ball.
Why did the CCPD run these inquiries? At the time, Cuddeback was a private citizen, not under any criminal investigation. What legal reason did CCPD have to run a blanket query? What happened to the 4th Amendment?
That’s what’s confusing … what were the circumstances that flagged Cuddeback?
I could be wrong, but my spidey sense is all amiss.
