Police Stop, Handcuff Every Adult at Intersection in Search for Bank Robber

Practicing for Martial Law. I just hope it doesn't come out that those Russian troops were "helping" in this illegal activity.
Not seeing the issue here. They had no description other than a tip that he was at the stoplight so nobody was handcuffed for very long. Just a precaution while they figured out who he was.

When I worked security at a casino and we had a lost child we locked everyone in until we found the kid.

Looking for a bank robber, not to find stuff on anyone there. A bit of a difference as the bank robber presents a public threat.
Oh really? You handcuff adults for some up to two hours to peek in the window? This is what is wrong with this country, people are idiots and will except anything.

They were unhandcuffed as soon as their car was searched. The entire event took an hour and a half.

“Most of the adults were handcuffed, then were told what was going on and were asked for permission to search the car,” Fania said. “They all granted permission, and once nothing was found in their cars, they were un-handcuffed.”

So you think the cops should have just let em all pass and let the bank robber get away? Or not handcuff them and let the bank robber take a few free shots at the cops possibly hitting a kid?

Hey dude this is America, you do not hand cuff innocent people. I wouldn't have stood for it, then what bright guy? I guess I am a nut because I refuse to be handcuffed, and we don't know the severity of the searches.

Like I said, people are becoming cowardly little idiots that will except anything.

The problem is that they didn't know who was innocent and who was guilty. In that case you detain everyone till you figure it out. Its either that or let them all go which leaves the possibility open that this guy will rob somewhere else possibly killing someone.

Cops made the right call and you'd be in jail for assault.
