What is Criminal Interdiction? Part II:

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.
