Obama's police state marches on....


The roadblocks went up on a Friday at several points in two Alabama towns, about 40 miles on either side of Birmingham.

For the next two days, off-duty sheriff's deputies in St. Clair County, to the east, and Bibb County, to the southwest, flagged down motorists and steered them toward federal highway safety researchers. The researchers asked them a few questions about drinking and drug use and asked them for breath, saliva and blood samples -- offering them $10 for saliva and $50 to give blood.

It's not just in Alabama. The roadblocks are part of a national study led by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is trying to determine how many drivers are on the road with drugs or alcohol in their systems.

Similar roadblocks will be erected in dozens of communities across the nation this year, according to the agency.

So what happens when motorists refuse? I haven't read the article yet, I'm in the middle of making dinner.

"It was all voluntary. Nobody was made to participate or anything like that," Lawrence said. "They could just answer the little 10 survey questions and then leave, or they could answer the questions and give the mouth sample, or they could do it all."

Deputies were told they were not to make arrests, he said. If a breath sample indicated that a driver was legally intoxicated, "The organization would handle them as far as a ride home."



"How voluntary is it when you have a police officer in uniform flagging you down?" "Are you going to stop? Yes, you're going to stop."

Are you on drugs? I happen to think for myself, not according to some "party line" bullshit spewed by either Democrats or Republicans. Anyone following either of those two parties in our country are the real lemmings being led to their death over a cliff. But hey, keep votin' for them rootin' tootin' shootin' elephants like a good little Ditto Head, Killer. I'm sure they are the answer to all of our problems. :jerkit:

It is nice out here. No joke.

All of this "crap" always happens in other parts of this country. There is basically zero racism, and even better, there is essentially no feuding between classes and political parties.

I've been to a BBQ where a flaming (his words) homosexual was sitting next to a Marine, discussing the pros & cons of (insert topic: gay rights, military spending) in a CIVIL manner.

Maybe it was something in the bacon... :wink02:

Good job, Killer. You compare me to a Nazi sympathizer for pointing out what you posted in an article that debunks your claim of a "police state", and here you are using racial slurs openly. Oh, the irony.

As someone of asian-americant decent, as well as a former US military soldier, well, I don't even know what to say about that, other than you better watch what you're saying. Another post like this and I'm sending you on a vacation, and I'm not playing either.

It's cool to have your own opinions about things, and I won't stop that. Throwing racist comments like that around is where I'll draw the line however. And yes like Bayz said, they were our enemy then, it doesn't make it ok to say that, especially 40 years later.
