The officer was justified in pulling the vehicle over. If you have a crack in the windshield, a tail light or head light out, loud muffler are all legal reasons to be pulled over. If you don't want to be pulled over, make sure everything on your vehicle is in proper working order and fixed! Don't we all feel profiled any time any of us are pulled over. My brother was always harassed by our city police for the type of vehicle he drove, one day my mom was driving the car and got pulled over. They saw it wasn't my brother and walked away...talk about profiling! But did we file a federal law suit over it?! Right now the caucasians are the minorities...we should be screaming profiling and racism. But we don't.
The only time a person feels they are being profiled is if they are doing something wrong or illegal. If you aren't guilty of anything it shouldn't be a problem to show your drivers license like everyone has to do when pulled over, heaven forbid, and as for the officer asking if you speak English, I think that is a courtesy thing since you live in a highly spanish speaking community. I'm sure he wanted to speak in a language you could understand.
Thank God for "profiling" that's what keeps us all safe! The lawsuit filers would be crying if a member of their family was raped, killed or robbed because the police did not stop someone who fit the "profile" of a particular criminal. So stop whining! Obviously you were feeling guilty about doing something wrong if you are whining!!
