    Yes you should be free to drink or use any drug but if you put others in jeopardy, you should be imprisoned.

    If they don't want to be arrested they shouldn't drink and drive in the first place. I think it keeps them on their toes.

    Randomly stopping people for no reason and forcing them to take a sobriety test? No. That is not a good idea.

    If you mean I can be stopped for no apparent reason and breathalyzed, absolutely not. If cops are stopping people randomly (checkpoint at a state line on New Year's Eve or something), and I get stopped, they could breathalzye me if I appeared high.

    I think they should be able to set up random sobriety checkpoints anytime they wish.

    Me too, that's what I was getting at. A checkpoint is one thing, stopping me alone for no apparent reason and wanting a breathalyzer is another.

    You said it better. :)

    Random checkpoints here were effective.

    Really I think it wouldn't hurt...but it would just be another thing for the people to be yelling about being picked on about.....FYI police officers are randomly tested for alcohol and drugs..but yeah I know..thats different!!!

    But only if you throw out the Fourth Amendment, then and only then.

    Can you show me in the fourth amendment where it says that you have the right to be free of random sobriety checkpoints?
  • Dale Assassi... 2012/04/09 13:17:02
    Dale
    And I quote the Fourth Amendment...

    "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

    And I home on the key word "random." I am not a lawyer, nor have I ever wanted to be, but it is my opinion that a random search is quite unreasonable. Probable cause..? Then go for it, but to pull someone over(or pass through a checkpoint) randomly then the next question would be, "What other police measure can be done randomly?"

    That relates to search of a persons personal property. Also I don't see the word Random in your quote. You are driving on the road, they are not coming to your home. The two things are completely unrelated. A Road is not your private property.

    Aaah, but my vehicle is my personal property. And in my case, I am insured as a full time RV'er. If I, or anyone else, is weaving down the road, going 60mph in a 25mph zone, going 25 in a 70mph, or some other stupid thing, that might be cause. But to pull someone through a checkpoint randomly is, in my unschooled opinion, unreasonable. I am sure that SCOTUS has made some type of decision on cases like these, but...

    No, it'd be bs and an unnecessary disruption of traffic.

    I don't believe it is unnecessary.

    I believe it is.
