[quote:Anonymous Coward 1131832:MV8xMzg4OTgxXzIyODk3NDIwXzM4QUVCRTZB] It's such a joke. First off, they don't give two shits about people driving drunk and getting into accidents - this isn't for people's protection. They make money off the damn DUI's they issue and they wait outside bars and even mark cars on their headlights so other cops can spot who was at a bar and just pull them over. Then there's the fact that most of the cops drink and drive themselves. Where I live in Illinois (outside Chicago), there's a handful of bars in town that cops frequent and they get trashed. It's just like the seat belt laws...like they really give a shit if you aren't wearing a seat-belt. They just want a reason to pull you over. This is a police state already. [/quote]

'No-refusal' DUI checkpoint in place tonight

URBANA – Champaign County law enforcement officials are going to be tightening the screws on potential drunken drivers Friday night.
State's Attorney Julia Rietz said motorists stopped in a roadside safety check in Urbana who refuse to submit to chemical testing will be given an offer they can't refuse:
A search warrant will be laid on them, forcing them to submit to testing, or they face a felony obstruction of justice charge.
"The goal is to get people to take the breathalyzer test. Ideally, they would agree to take the breathalyzer without the forced blood draw," she said.
Roadside safety checks are nothing new in Champaign County, but the "no-refusal" check is.
"We had discussed doing it for Unofficial St. Patrick's Day, but the law enforcement people said their resources would be stretched because they would be concentrating on campus," Rietz said. Illinois State Police "had already planned to do this roadblock this weekend."
The roadblock starts at 11 p.m. and runs to 4 a.m. Saturday at an undisclosed location. The difference between other safety checks done by police and this one is that prosecutors and a judge will be standing by.
"We have search warrants drafted that are basically fill-in-the blank," Rietz said.
What kind of insanity is this? FOURTH AMENDMENT DOWN THE DRAIN!!
