that ended well for them
Somehow a video camera creates an invisible cloak around it's user.
I'd love for a cop to 'mistake' it for a gun.
Aye, you're under arrest.
i still dont know how DUI check points are legal in this country. Youre forcing people to essentially be searched without probable cause. Has it been challenged in a court of law?
They're legal as long as they're announced and there's an alternate route... so essentially you make the decision to enter the checkpoint, in theory.
I actually googled it after i said that and in 1990 it was brought before the supreme court where in a split decision the winning judges said they were allowed as an exception to the 4th amendment because of the dangers posed to others by a drunk driver. In the dissenting judges opinion they wrote there are no exceptions to an amendment and either everything falls under its protection or it should be repealed so nothing falls under its protection. The winning judges stated because of this each state can make up their own mind on the matter. 11 states (Alaska, Idaho, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming) banned DUI Check points The dissenting judges have it right and they should be declared unconstitutional and banned. I dont know how they fucked up such a clearly cut and dry case of something violating the 4th amendment. Gang bangers pose a greater threat to others than a drunk driver but they receive the protection of the 4th amendment in an instance of if an exception should be made this is were it should be not violating law abiding citizens rights on the off chance someone might of had 1 beer to many. Just another example of how the law protects criminals but fucks the law abiding citizens
That's the way it is in PA but they tend to make the announcement
vague enough to still get people trapped in them.
I've won a few bar bets by calling up police stations and asking where the checkpoint was located exactly... they have to tell you in California.
There's a video of a guy that just pulls up to the checkpoint and states his rights without rolling his window down, cop gets pissed but they eventually let him go without incident.
Yeah they didnt have to though because unless he was in 1 of the 11 states I mentioned in my previous post that banned them then he was incorrect about his rights. My prev post explains it
He was incorrect about his constitutional rights?
Not according to his country/state's elected/appointed 'officials' that determine what rights have exceptions. Checkpoint laws have specific exceptions, so he was correct about his rights. That's why they let him go. They should be banned, but til then it's a rare opportunity to payback cops if they are/were an asshole by being an asshole and get away with it. Just don't flee, have them chase you, and then plead your rights. That's just bitch-style.
Here's one from nevada.
One from california.
Umm isn't the same charge if you refuse? So by running away aren't you adding an elude charge?
So you are against DUI checks?
Are you saying you are "pro" drunk driving?
Note to self- Always read past the first four words of the thread title before whipping your dick out and pressing play.

If you refuse you get stuffed and taken to the hospital where they draw your blood forcibly. It is my understanding they give you an automatic loss of license too...which I don't see how they can do that if you refuse and you have no alcohol in your system.
This is bullshit at 2:45 I have seen people that did turns to avoid the checkpoint and police cars were positioned to give chase and pulled those cars over in NJ.
EEEEEEE! Those videos are scary as fuck. Those guys had big ass balls to exercise there constitutional rights to those savage, jack booted thugs. Mrs. SC asked me why they didn't do whatever the pigs said. I answered, "Because they are Patriots".
Same reason they can't limit pontoon sizes man.
Actually they can and they do.
But she is a patriot.
I see what you did there. Im pro against seach and siezure without probable cause. The fact im behind the wheel is not probal cause.
They can if they have probable cause you're drunk driving. But not if you just pull up and refuse to play their bullshit checkpoint game without having broken any laws.
Yep, motorhead or someone mentioned that cops almost/did cause a big wreck because they scrambled when they saw someone do that. Like whiskeyguy mentioned, technically you can avoid a checkpoint. In theory.
