      I can see what you’re saying, but I’d rather have DUI checkpoints than have someone I love killed by a dunk driver.

      Why, 4th Amendment reason?

      These kind of DUI Checkpoints have been ruled Constitutional by both the US and CA Supreme Courts, so what part of Liberty is dead?

      The Liberty for you to get s*&t faced and drive your car?
      The Liberty for unlicensed drivers to cruse our streets free and clear?

      What Liberty is RIP?

      Are you kidding me? All that money and resources for one D.U.I arrest?

      These so called protectors are just padding their already fat paychecks.

          ‘Concered’ says: “If it saves one life……’s all worth it!”

          Is it really? Is there a line to be drawn where our government is using too much of our tax dollars to ‘save just one life?’
