Literally all that happens at a check point is the police drop by your car, peek in, and say hi. If they suspect alcohol, then they pull you aside.

I like how people are all anti-checkpoint, but when it came to terrorist searching and stuff "IF YOU'RE NOT GUILTY YOU HAVE NOTHING TO FEARRRRRRRR"

Well I don't get it myself. I mean, if you're not drunk, then what's the problem?

The courts have ruled the checkpoints are NOT unconstitutional.

I'm in agreement with those rulings.

Above is the Supreme Court decision on this issue. Note who wrote what.

I shall return tomorrow morning and we will discuss the decision, and the exact ruling of the Court.

The courts ruled they are only a slight infringement on our rights so they stand. The courts basically said bend over and grab your ankles. Liberals of course are in that position from the time they are born so are used to it.

My opinion (and yours) doesn't matter.

I'm confident the practice will continue.

When you're arrested, feel free to take your case to the supreme court, though.

Keep us informed of your progress.

So you don't mind drunks on the road. Perhaps you're one of them?

I can't help but think the ones screaming the loudest are the most guilty.

Tell that to the IRS lady pleading the 5th. She claims, and now her lawyer claims, she's not guilty of anything yet.............

Aren't they akin to stopping people at the airport check-in, or at border crossings?
