Quoting Captain Obvious:" Why not listen to the guy who puts his life on the line for your safety every day? *shrugs*"


I don't see it that way at all. He is a man who was having a power trip.

Of course you don't. But I have a husband and a father who put their lives on the line everyday for assholes. Every night my husband goes to work I have to live with the fact that he might not come home in the morning and I may be raising our children alone. So forgive my bias opinion.

There was no need to be like that, and the way he acted IMP gave him reason to suspect, and my understanding is if they suspect something they can do what they did.

But the person they pretty much violated now doesn't feel safe because of the police? Obviously he has had this issue before which is why he felt the need to video tape it.
Nobodies rights should be violated or taken away for any reason, especially if they are innocent.

No he taped it because he knew he was going to piss the officer off and wanted to put it on youtube.

Check what? that he was in fact within his rights and innocent? They didn't even ask him if he had been drinking. :?



ETA: I would NEVER roll my window down all the way for any man. Police officer or not.

Sobriety checkpoints or roadblocks involve law enforcement officials stopping every vehicle (or more typically, every nth vehicle) on a public roadway and investigating the possibility that the driver might be too impaired to drive. They are often set up late at night or in the very early morning hours and on weekends, at which time the proportion of impaired drivers tends to be the highest. Checkpoints are also often set near the exit points of public events, to prevent large numbers of drunk drivers from being released into traffic simultaneously from the event.[citation needed]
With a portable and quick alcohol breath test, the police can test all drivers (if the law permits), and process the cars one by one as in a conveyor belt. When there is no quick test, a more complicated routine is necessary. Upon suspicion, the stopped driver is required to exit the vehicle and take a roadside sobriety test that requires the demonstration of both mental and balance skills. If the officer determines based on his observations during the tests, the driver is then required to take an alcohol breath test (referred to as a Breathalyzer test in the United States). It is important to note that you can not pass or fail a field sobriety test as they are not "pass-or-fail", they are only meant to aid the officer in determining if you are impaired based on observations of the subjects performance of these tests. Being subjected to perform this test is not prohibited by the fourth amendment of the United States Constitution if the law enforcement entity posts or announces in advance that these checkpoints will occur and at what location; law enforcement agencies often post a sign in a small road or street during the weekdays when it is only seen by local residents and not by those attending a special event or those that only travel in that area of the city during the weekend to patronize local bars and clubs. These announcements are also sometimes printed in news papers. Numerous websites host a database of check points that are to occur based on information found in news papers, the internet and tips from visitors of such sites.
Sobriety checkpoints regularly catch much more than just drunk drivers.[citation needed] The identity checks will catch individuals wanted by the police, and DUI often occurs together with other crimes, such as vehicle inspection and registration violations, vehicle tax avoidance or driving without a license.[citation needed]

Yup. "He's perfectly innocent and he knows his rights. He knows what the constitution says."

We do not need to bow down and allow cops to shove their dicks up our assholes just because they ask, figuratively speaking. Know your rights. Just because they ask, doesn't mean you MUST comply. You should know your rights. Just as you do not need to to allow a cop to come into your home and search without a warrant. Know your rights. My Mom and I were pulled over and were not speeding and did NOTHING wrong. This cop was on a power trip, came up to us and BARKED at us and said "LICENSE AND REGISTRATION!" My Mom said "Okay sir, did I do something wrong?" She went to reach for her purse, which was on the floor by me. I went to get it. He said "HANDS WHERE I CAN SEE THEM!" I said "Sir my Mom is disabled and can't reach that far, may I help her get her purse?" He was telling us to hurry up and get out her license. Then before I could do that, he tells her to get out of the car and takes her to the back. I can't hear what they are saying but hes yelling at her. I have her walled and I try to take her wallet and registration to her and he comes to me and says "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING! DID I SAY YOU COULD COME OUT? GET BACK IN THE CAR AND DO AS I SAY! THERE IS NO NEED FOR YOU OUT HERE!" Now my Mom has a heart condition and I thought she could have a damn near heart attack, so I'm holding her wallet and Id and stuff... now here is the kicker...



So he randomly ran our license plate and sees that my Mom's name was part of an identity theft ages ago that we had cleared up. This woman went on a spending spree and everything, but all he saw was identity theft and went "Aha! I got her!" Didnt see we went to court and saw that IT WAS CLEARED UP AND WASNT HER! My Moms identity was stolen and my Mom has the most uncommon name in the whole freakin world. He just thought he was making a big sting. He ran our license plate for nothing... we werent speeding... I dont know what his damn deal was. So finally he tells my Mom "Okay I guess I can let you go, once I look further into your name it comes back clean." She said "If you took one look at my ID that's in my car you would see that it looks nothing like the picture that is on your computer right now."



My Mom seriously thought she was going to have another heart attack and I was berated for trying to HELP her by giving her the ID that would have stopped the mess in the first place... some people shouldn't be cops.

You can't really abuse your rights. You either use them or you loose them...literally. The reasons these cops are acting like asshats is they are soooo unfamiliar with running into someone who KNOWS and is USING their rights that it now comes off as if the guy is being a dickhead, when in fact he is just USING his rights. You do NOT have any right that you cannot freely use.

Yes, they set up random road blocks, speak to people & give breath checks as they deem warranted. They clearly never thought this kid was drunk.
