Rare occurrence, I'm sure, but technically in MN, you CAN be stopped for something hanging from your mirror -- I know this is also the law in CA. My white mother was stopped in CA for this exact reason after failing to remove her handicap hang tag from her mirror. The cop only gave her a verbal warning and since she did not have any arrest warrants nor tried to resist arrest, she was not shot. But yes, the whole air freshener allegation has got faaaar to much play in this instance... observe:The air freshener thing is a red herring. Fake news.
Outright lie republished unquestionably by the reflexive woke media Pavlovian microaggression dog whistle crowd.
