Rockin’Rick wrote an article this morning on our sister station US 103.3. A sobriety checkpoint has been introduced SOMEWHERE this Friday in Burleigh County, between the hours of seven pm and 9 pm. That is all we all know. An extended 3 day weekend (Memorial Day) is simply forward, and sadly – individuals will head out to the river, drink means an excessive amount of, make a foul determination, and get behind the wheel. I want we had a roadblock EVERY night time. There are lots of individuals I do know who really feel that DUI checkpoints are unconstitutional. I learn some feedback simply the opposite day on Fb that floored me. “These so-called checkpoints are easy intrusions designed to entice us all – provides the police an opportunity to ship extra harassment” Kyle in Mandan mentioned. One other girl right here in Bismarck tried to vent – saying that the police are “violating her 4th modification rights”. Undecided what that proper is? Right here it’s from constitutioncenter.org
The suitable of the individuals to be safe of their individuals, homes, papers, and results, towards unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall difficulty, however upon possible trigger, supported by Oath or affirmation, and significantly describing the place to be searched, and the individuals or issues to be seized.
I am all about having your rights protected, however the second you begin complaining about having to roll via a checkpoint, that it is a “HUGE inconvenience for you” and that it is fully unwarranted, you’ve got misplaced me. Attempt telling that to somebody who misplaced their entire household in a head-on drunk driving accident. A few issues, police are skilled to search for these which are impaired, PERIOD. Additionally, if you’re fully sober, and you might be driving, WHY must you really feel threatened? Does not make any sense to me. Checkpoints SAVE LIVES – Drive protected – Drive Grateful – ALWAYS.
