In my first post I started off with a definition of criminal interdiction but I didn’t really elaborate much beyond that definition. That’s in part because it’s not a topic that lends itself to a short explanation. On the Iowa Criminal Defense Blog I have posted written descriptions (here and here) of what typically happens during an interdiction stop. Instead of simply blogging about what happens during a criminal interdiction stop, I thought I’d show you one. The video below was shot in Illinois by an amateur film maker. It is humorous and disconcerting. I will break down the officer’s actions in subsequent posts. For now watch the video and let me know what you think.
