Welcome To The Police State

Isn’t it great that we live in a free country? Imagine living in one of those commie police states where the cops can stop you and demand to see your papers for no reason.

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

DUI checkpoints are problematic for civil libertarians. The courts have given them their approval, but what the courts say is permissible and what really happens at the side of the road are two different things.

This guy has got brass balls. I would not have done it. Cops tend to dislike people who assert their constitutional rights. People like that often find themselves being charged with “obstructing, resisting or delaying” the po-po. You could even get tazed, bro. You might eventually beat the rap but you’ll still take the ride and spend the night in jail.

You can try suing but it’s gonna be your word against the word of all those fine, upstanding officers who have no reason to lie.

Verdict: Bad cop, no donut!

    In some states this kid could have been arrested for video recording the cops without their consent.

    Sultan Knish:

    If Trayvon Martin had been the clean cut innocent kid that the media tried to pretend he is, the reaction might have been different. But he wasn’t. The gap between Martin and Zimmerman wasn’t race, in other circumstances most liberals would have called both men members of minority groups, it was aspiration.

    George Zimmerman wanted to to be a cop. Trayvon Martin wanted to be a hood. It’s quite possible that Martin got no closer to his ambition than Zimmerman got to his. Both men were just going through the motions on the edge of a game of cops-and-robbers that suddenly turned deadly real. And even in a country where the thug tops the entertainment heap, the vulnerable parts of the middle class have more sympathy for aspiring cops than for aspiring thugs.


    Everyone is the hero in their own story, but George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin were living out different stories. George Zimmerman was looking out for his neighbors while Trayvon Martin was looking to live the thug life. Martin’s story ended with him realizing that sometimes attitude isn’t enough and Zimmerman’s story ended with him realizing that sometimes even when you try to be the hero, you’re going to be drawn as a villain.

  3. IMO DUI checkpoints go a step too far, even though the state has a duty to keep public roads safe. It is a cheaper way of achieving their goals, but the cost to personal rights is too high. That said, if they are going to run checkpoints they’ve got to screen out their bullies better. This one needs to find a new job.
    Once a cop hears that those questions he needs to make a decision. Right then. And unfortunately for some, the decision could be an immediate arrest based on the thinnest of probable causes, and then allowing it to sort itself out 12 hours later with an OR release and an eventual no-file. As long as the cop keeps cool and professional, complaints usually fall on deaf ears .

      The problem is that SOP for the cops is to make requests sound like commands and when a driver treats them as requests, the cops can’t handle it. That’s because checkpoints are a gray area. They have to have cause to pull you over, and refusing to pull over is not a reason. Some people just get let go because the police don’t know how to get them to comply without arresting them. Then again, you could end up being arrested like the guy who lost his home to some cops trying to stake out another house.

      • 49erDweet says:

        It all started out over 50 years ago with one well-publicized checkpoint per year on New Years Eve to cut back on the number of fatalities usually occurring that night. That was the camel’s-nose-under-or-tent moment. Since then the practice has gone to university and had a brilliant career.

    • Why not? Make the other party spend all that money and live even deeper in the minds of the progs. Win-win. And good for popcorn sales, too.

    Well, it took a while, but my bush is trimmed.

    I’m gonna go lay down and rest now.

      I am not in the least bit worried, because I live in an ARMED “whitey’s suburb”, and the NBP are huge bullying cowards who never in a milion years will have the balls to go anywhere that white people will fight back. If you live somewhere where the govt has disarmed you, maybe you might want to be concerned. Me? I laugh at their asses.

      They tried to pull their BS in TX once, showing up to initmidate and yell on camera about the Joe Horn case (a guy here who shot a burglar in his neighbor’s yard.) They came to his front yard with a fawning camera crew. The local citizens of TX showed up, HARLEY DAVIDSONS and all, and proceeded to drown out their attempted media circus. They left in defeat.

      Watch it. It’s a thing of beauty. They are not accustomed to resistance.

      • wmcb says:

        BTW, the local news interviewed many of those involved later. They were pissed. They knew the history and violence of the NBP. And they knew that TX law had decided the shooting was justified. They were furious that these out of state turds wanted to make national racial hay out of a local matter in THEIR community.

        No one was attacked. No one was harmed. But they made it their mission that these assholes would NOT succeed in staging their usual media circus. Joe Horn never even came out of his house. His neighbors drove of the NBP.

        • myiq2xu says:

          Their most recent claim to fame was having two guys show up and look tough outside a voting precinct in Philly ghetto. Two black guys scowling and looking tough in a black neighborhood.

          It wasn’t like they were gonna draw a hostile crowd of skinheads.

        • wmcb says:

          Yep. The guy who organized the Joe Horn thing here in TX, Quanell X, is a known shyster and hatemonger. He’s also a misogynist Muslim. He was all in support of the Taliban after 9/11. He did some lovely victim-blaming of an 11 year old little girl who was gang raped by 18 men (he lobbied in support of the men.)

          Those people were NOT having that asshole speaking in their neighborhood. He’s scum.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Great video ! We’re a well armed neighborhood too, even our next door neighbor is the regional NRA grand pooh-bah or something shiny like that 😀

      • DandyTiger says:

        Guess I better get out the M2 and set it up. Did I just say that out loud?

      • Anthony says:

        Great video – thanks!

      • swanspirit says:

        That video is inspirational !

    • Internal Exile says:

      If they’re typical of radical organizations in the United Stasi of Fubarica, half the members are government moles. 😛

      *dons Wrap Cap (Reynolds Wrap, that is)*

      Speaking of which, I wonder if way back when, the prosecution didn’t deliberately bungle the case against Bill Ayers because he was, and remains, a govt. mole. Hmmm… 😉

    “…Isn’t it great that we live in a free country?..”

    We do live in a free country. It will remain free as long as we have brave souls like this guy willing to push the boundaries.

    If this wasn’t a free country, they probably would have just shot him for being a pain in the ass and no one would ever have seen the video.

    Speaking of cops, the guy who was rejected as a cop for scoring too HIGH on his IQ test, lost his case today. The theory is, they don’t want anybody too smart because they might get bored with being a cop. S-u-r-e.

    • 1539days says:

      I’m not all that impressed with people who score high on IQ tests. We have enough people in COngress who are creative with the law. I’d rather have a cop with good grades than a high IQ. Studiers are better than geniuses.

      • 49erDweet says:

        There are at least two types of geniuses. Functional and dysfunctional. Functional types (like Myiq) are mutli-talented operational mavens who usually make fantastic leaders. Dysfunctional ones like the absentminded professor type, and others you’re thinking of, might be brilliant but can’t pour urine out of a boot. I’ve worked with both types, and the latter drive everyone around them nuts.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Applicants should RUN from every agency with a “too high” rule. C-r-o-o-k-e-d.

    Speaking as an outsider, I have to say that sometimes I wanna tell you guys (US guys that is) to stop being so precious. Nobody has the right to get behind the wheel of a car drunk and incapacitated. Nobody has the right to kill someone under the influence. And if stopping a drunk bastard murdering someone with a car means you have to stop and take a breathalyser test now and again, so be it. We do it all the time here in Oz and all it’s done is save lives and maybe add a couple of minutes to a car journey now and then. You’re not being invaded, you’re not being manhandled. You’re helping to save lives.

    • DandyTiger says:

      But we like being precious. We’re princesses here in the US. And we’re armed to keep it that way. 🙂

    • Jadzia says:

      They actually had checkpoints here last summer, in my village of about 1,000 people, in the middle of the damn day. And that’s what got me serious about getting my French drivers’ license. Not that 72 hours or so in prison wouldn’t be a nice little vacation.

    I thought the Dems didn’t like greedy Super Pacs funded by 1%ers?


    I wonder how this makes Biden feel ? 😉
