Default Blood, spit and cops: Nationwide drug roadblocks raise eyebrows

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."

If this was completely voluntary, how is this relating to a police state?
