Happy fourth of July: 4th of July DUI Checkpoint - Drug Dogs, Searched without Consent

 

I was once told that if you can say you live in a Fascist state on Sunday and still be alive or ‘free’ on Monday you do not live in a fascist state.  So then what is America?  It is a totalitarian police state run by the military dictatorship.  We have not crossed over from manipulation to full spectrum repression, but we will soon.  For the one percent know that too many of us will never accept this life.  Their life.  Snowden knows this; Julian Assange does too.  You will as well if you don’t already.

When the next big false flag crisis hits be ready.  For then the lines will blur and manipulation will not work for the one percent — only repression.

Watch the video of the coming fascist state.  Close to four million viewers.

The purpose of this video is to show that having certain rights counts to many police officers as being suspicious nowadays. This video was not meant to go after anybody’s job or to sue anyone. In the end, I was let go with no charges. This video is not saying that all cops are bad or that all cops want to use their power to take away Constitutional rights from citizens. Cops are also not “pigs.” I very much respect law enforcement. All that I want is for citizens to have respect from police.

Here are the numbers from the checkpoint that night:
» 250 vehicles passed through the checkpoint
» 20 vehicles were detained that required further investigation
» Three vehicles were searched
» One misdemeanor arrest was made
» 32 citations were issued: Two child restraint device citations, one DUI, 10 citations for violations of the registration law, four citations for violation of the light law, one revoked/suspended driver’s license, six financial responsibility (no insurance), six other driver’s license law violations, and two safety belt law violations.

Only one DUI arrest was made. One out of 250. That’s less than one percent. It seems to me that these police checkpoints are nothing more than just fund raisers for themselves. http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/10/1… At a DUI stop, the police are only supposed to stop people for a short period of time to see if they are driving impaired. They are NOT supposed to be issuing citations to people.
Another reason why I disagree with checkpoints: In America, you are innocent until proven guilty. At checkpoints, that is pretty much reversed. In the future, I recommend that all motorists record their encounters with law enforcement.
