    Cops who made this traffic stop are one short of a six pack in the head. They're driving a rental car, and I'm sure the driver spoke with a German accent and said "I left my passport and license at the hotel…" Cops should have use diplomacy, followed the company official (who provides jobs for Alabama) to the hotel to retrieve his passport and license, and let him go from there. But ooh no, I'm a robot cop who makes no exception, even if it means Mercedes Benz might close their assembly plant and move to another state.

    You are suggesting preferential treatment.

    Carry your driver's license. Period.

    @Lance... You already have the same requirement in this country. Any law enforcement officer can ask you for identification, and if you can't produce any, you're going to jail, if for no other reason to be fingerprinted, so they can positively identify you.

    @Mr. Nuts - How did this become an issue involving Rush Limbaugh ???

    If there was a 'national identification card' that every CITIZEN AND LEGAL ALIEN had, it would make it very easy to figure out who was here illegally, and as a side benefit, it would make voter fraud much more difficult to commit. Yes, I see the correlation to '1984' by George Orwell. But you have that now, with every entity in the country feeling they have to use your social security no. as ID.

    He was driving a car and should have had a drivers license with him. Do you think that Americans are allowed to drive around in Germany without an international drivers license?

    The story said He had no ID, if he would have had His Drivers License on him he would not have had A problem. And His company understood that and also advised out of towners to always carry their ID. We have to do what it takes to these ILLEGAL INVADERS OF OUR COUNTRY OUT, if you don't like it LEAVE

    We need to E-Verify the nation and then fix U.S. trade so Americans can go back to work at good jobs again.

  • cfmurray avatar cfmurray Posted: 1/5/2012 8:07am PST

    Mr. Armstrong, I agree. But the only way you're going to fix U.S. trade, (e.g., the auto industry)is by repealing at least 1/2 of the safety and emissions regs put on by congress. By doing that, you make the car less expensive, and make it more attractive for the manufacturer to produce here. Also, either take away corporate taxes, or make the dividends they pay non-taxable income, as it's already been taxed. These idiots who decry the 'big, evil companies', 99 times out of 100, don't have a financial stake in the company. for which they work. If it weren't for these companies, these idiots would be on welfare, since they don't have the initiative or guts to try to go into business for themselves. Just my two cents...

    As a German, he should understand the NEED to have IDENTIFICATION with him at all times!

    So I'd need to carry my passport with me, even if I'm an American, and I'm travelling from one US state to another? This is one stupid law. All the foreign companies need to stop investing in these racist states.

  • fb_1491948054 avatar Kurt Posted: 11/24/2011 10:31am PST

    @Rafi, as an American, all you'd need is a driver's license. My comment about always keeping a passport with you applies to traveling in foreign countries only.

  • fb_715312342 avatar fb_715312342 Posted: 11/23/2011 12:05pm PST

    But do we really want to be a nanny state like Europe, where we have to show papers everywhere we go? Isn't the government too intrusive as it is?

  • fb_100002468488984 avatar fb_100002468488984 Posted: 11/30/2011 4:14pm PST

    It's easier to simply implement E-Verify nationwide so Americans are working jobs here and not the illegals. Problem mostly solved.

  • Mr. Nuts avatar Mr. Nuts Posted: 11/25/2011 1:59pm PST

    If you're stupid enough to go out without proper identification -- you're stupid enough to have something like this happen to you. What happens if you're incapacitated and wind up in a hospital? What will let your family know? How will medical staff get access to your records? Nanny state. Geez, turn off Limbaugh and try thinking for yourself.

  • fb_715312342 avatar fb_715312342 Posted: 11/27/2011 6:19am PST

    No need for a personal attack, Mr. Nuts. In response to your question, there's a difference between carrying contact or medical information in your wallet, and being legally required to carry state-issued papers with you whenever you're outside. And for the record, I can't stand that lying druggie.
