Respect, many don't.

Have you ever used the line, "You don't mind if I search your car do you?"

I doubt that many officers would even have the credentials or knowledge to give legal lessons anyways.

Sadly many can't but get the backing of the DA. Even if the individual is innocent they still feel the pain and sometimes for a very long and expensive time.

I would still like to know from my fist question to you, have you read the constitution and bill of rights?
I would add the follow on, do you believe local laws take precedence over constitutional law were you work?
I have used that line, but most of the time I just give an order and search when I have the legal justification to do so.

I read the Constitution and Bill of Rights in high school, and touched on and/or reviewed certain aspects of it while attending college. I'm sure that's the case for most people.

Give me an example of what you mean by local laws superseding constitutional rights.
