It used to not only be OK to do this, it was recommended if you 
didn't want the cops messing around inside your car.

Since then, the value of a police officer's life has been elevated to 
a more important status than that of everyday citizens.

After all, it's MUCH more important to find that contraband you're
hiding in your car than it is for you to continue enjoying the fruits
of life and liberty.
