I don't like your handling of it... you let them run you through the system on a random pullover without cause? If your going to be baiting them, get a video camera and put it on YOUR dash pointing at the drivers window.
I had my issues with a city cop that was pulling me over after I closed the shop I was running several weekends in a row. I had a Pacer with a bashed in left rear and there was a Pub right behind our shop, so he thought he had a winner when I made my left turn out of the parking lot on a friday or saturday night...
After the third time (second had me wondering..) I laid into him when he sauntered up with the same "Do you know why I pulled you over". "Yeah, you think I've been drinking from the looks of my car and I'm filing a complaint if you ever pull me over again... NO you can't search my car and if you want my driver's license and insurance that you've seen the last two weekends, get your supervisor out here... I want to talk to him."
The last two excuses were "an unsafe lane change" (I made the left turn out of the parking lot onto an empty road... nothing unusual), and "you have a taillight out" (NOT... and BIG hesitation when I asked which one and verified they were all working). I had fun with them the night I drove one of my employees down the street from the pub to another bar and got pulled over there with a couple of cases of ammunition plainly visible in the back seat. NO, I don't have any weapons on me 'tonight', not that it matters and NO you may not search my car, and it's none of your business where I'm going. Cop was shining flashlight into backseat with cases of 12 gauge, 9mm and .45 ammo laid out on seat... but I was telling the truth, I had no weapon on me even though I have a concealed carry permit. Just happened that a local gun shop had a killer sale that day and I'd bought a bunch of ammo at lunch.
I used to street race and never got a ticket doing it... car was 100% clean and legal always, and they didn't have laws making being there illegal like they have now. When everyone else would take off as the cops showed up, I'd just get out and start cleaning my windsheild. Bugged the hell out of them and kept them from following the rest of the group while they tried to scare me into leaving... "But officer I parked to clean my windsheild, I don't want to be caught running around with an obstructed view!".
They'd be looking over my car with a fine tooth comb, but it was 100% stock and legal looking on the exterior (66 mustang coupe).
I haven't played young and dumb in a decade or so and only time I've been pulled over in a years was a motorcycle cop that pulled me over for having my front plate set up in the windsheild because the mount on the bumper was ripped out. He insisted on writing me a ticket which I got dismissed inside of an hour (fixed it and went straight to courthouse to see judge).
