Think..not drink…and drive

A few days ago on the way home, I was stopped and breathalysed at a checkpoint. Being a man with more than two braincells to rub together, I was stone cold sober..the cop greeted me, pointed a device at me, asked me to count to ten aloud..the machine beeped.

Blood alcohol content: ZERO.

He smiled, told me to “drive on safely” and turned his back on me…as his partner sharply ordered the fuckwit in the 4WD following that had been tailgating me, out of his car.

I’ve been told by one stupid American woman that “you have the right to drive drunk”.

Do you?

Watch the following, and remember.

It is not for the faint hearted, it pulls no punches. I dont give a living fuck if you think it is “socialism” as this lamebrained moron also said to me.

I make no apologies for what you are about to see.

Think. Drive. Survive.

    Okay, plain view it is for being caught in the act. However, the probable cause is one that smacks of ‘thought police’ to most people just because of the appearance of evil aspect.

    if you’re worried about the checkpoints now just wait until they “improve” the electronic control units to include remote access data loggers. the police will be able to read you

    …and Bush will suspend the Constitution, suspend elections, order cats and dogs to live together, tax you all at 200%, take away all your guns and paint your loungerooms purple…

    Hey, Brendan…

    given what you were wailing about last night about Joe Arpaio in AZ, you’re going to turn around and say that abuse of the system -isnt- going to happen?

    which one is it? either abuse wont happen, and Arpaio is a figment of your imagination, or it can, and -is- happening, and we have every right to be concerned.

    “wailing?”

    Funny, I thought I was pointing out that the man has literally gotten away with murder

    No it isnt…as opposed to the dozens of very REAL dead bodies left by the man you agreed was corrupt.?

    Difference is, one IS a figment of the imagination, and one isn’t.

    Glad we’ve settled it. roadblocks -in the US- are bad, and heavily subject to abuse, and it’s also clear we have plenty of officers ( at least in maricopa county ) who are willing to abuse it.

    gotcha.

    This thread went waaaay beyond where Brendan started.

    Deej – exactamondo. Amd despite all the hype, the right against warrantless search and seizure is much more defined and protected then it has ever been. Starting with the Warren Court, whole new levels of protection have been granted. And in NYS (where I unfortunately reside) the NYS Supremes have added additional levels above and beyond the restraints of the federal courts. As Brendon so eloquently stated – For Fuck’s Sake – prior to the rewrite of the NYS Penal Code in 1968, cops were able to hold you for 72 hours (3 DAYS) for purposes of conducting an investigation. Didn’t even need probable cause, any reason – locked up just because they didn’t like the color of your socks. People could be shot for fleeing a felony – any felony, like stealing over $500 worth of dime store candy or joy riding in a stolen car. I came on after that change (1974) but worked with cops who were weened on those obsolete guidelines regulating the use of deadly physical force. Every chase sounded like a freaking war… Hell, I was involved in one of those only five days out of the academy.

    Worried about some cop peering into your window? Sheeesh. One way or the other I’ve been in the business 35 years – you have absolutely no idea what cops used to be able to do. If you hate it now, be thankful you weren’t around back in the 50’s and 60’s.

    I’m not worried.

    I’m just going to wrap my truck in aluminum foil.

    It seems to work for these folks :em01:
