Response to Atypical Liberal (Reply #22)

24. Random checks?

Goodness no, there are far more important things out there than random checkpoints that rarely accomplish anything that good police work couldn't do better. I must say that when I have worked check points I usually do the "Your papers, please." in my best Major Hochstetter voice on priciple.



I despise checkpoints. The only time I ever thought one was appropriate was when the Klan came to town and we were trying to keep the bigots and the protesters from killing one another.

If a person comes into contact with the police on a complaint of intoxication it's perfectly reasonable and legal for me to conduct a "Terry" search prior to determining whether the individual is indeed intoxicated. Then things either go down hill from there or not. Since most people are clear headed and sane enough to get through the day without getting turned in it's a reasonable and rational approach that guards your Civil Liberties while keeping the public relatively safe.
