Interesting. First thing they do is cover the van with a tarp.

God forbid that people would see it is covered with stickers for trump and other right wing paraphernalia.
We dont want to ruffle the feathers of these trump voters.

After all Rush Limbaugh said that people on the right would not plant bombs...

1. As much as I would love to see the stickers, this is about protecting evidence.

It's not politically motivated.

8. Is it Standard Operating Procedure to cover a suspects vehicle

Where the tarps evidence retention prepared (I don't know the word for it) like other evidence collection tools. For example was the San Diego terrorist couple's vehicle covered?

If it was any old tarp then they actually destroyed evidence.

9. What exactly does it protect ?

Those stickers have been on this van parked outside for a while. It's not like they are going to disappear when they tow than van out.

15. tv cameras show the van is covered with MAGA paraphernalia

Florida cops don't want to expose Mr. Rightie. Evidence, yes. But Trump must be protected.

2. How often is this done?

I bet the FBI agents will be asked about this decision in Congressional testimony.

Kind of like the police officer who wiped the chalk marks off the wall next to one of Jack the Ripper's murders.

10. CNN guy said that's SOP for confiscating a vehicle

because they need to preserve all evidence (and there could be evidence on the outside as well as the inside).

12. The only time I've seen vehicles covered in a tarp by authorites has been

where someone in the vehicle died! I've seen that in both motorsports and highway accidents.

14. Probably to cover the license plate more than the stickers

You don't want to prejudice a potential jury by letting armchair sleuths track down the owner via license plate info. I wouldn't ascribe any sinister motives to the agents on this.

22. Haha so much for evidence preserving..

The damm tarp blew off the van. They had to stop and try to.put it back on.. so much for the theory about carefully wrapping it for evidence preservation.
