Buffalo Police pull a vehicle over. The license plate is out of state. Officers approach and inform three African Americans inside a turn signal was missed. The driver has a prominent neck tattoo. He presents his Learner's Permit. The front-seat passenger, his girlfriend, presents her driver's license and paperwork for the just-purchased, out-of-state vehicle. The officers walk back to their patrol car. On a body camera, one officer can be heard saying, "They have a gun. I just know it. We need a reason to search." Quickly, an officer realizes that the young lady's driver's license is expired, making the learner's permit insufficient. "Yes, we got 'em," exclaims an officer. "We have our reason to search."
