How to Go Through a DUI Checkpoint Like a Pro — in Less than 30 Seconds – The Free Thought Project
New Haven, CT — DUI checkpoints are an unfortunate reality in the ostensible land of the free. Luckily, there are still people in this country who choose to assert their rights and challenge this tyrannical and constitution-violating police state racket.
Michael Picard is a champion of freedom and has no fear when it comes to challenging the police state. On numerous occasions, the Free Thought Project has reported on Picard’s endeavors in flexing his liberties. He’s even been picked up by the ACLU after recording police attempting to falsely charge him.
“We were protesting the checkpoint with signs reading, ‘cops ahead.’” Picard told the Free Thought Project of his activism before going through the checkpoint. Then, Picard and his friends had to drive through the checkpoint they’d just been protesting in order to go home.
“We were heading home and had to go through the checkpoint in order to get onto the highway,” Picard explains.
That’s when the video began.
As the car rolls up to the checkpoint, the officer asks for Picard’s license, to which Picard replies, “Why?”
“This is a DUI checkpoint,” the officer replies. Then, something awesome happens.
When the officer sees the camera coupled with the fact that Picard is not immediately curtsying to his command, he realizes that ‘It’s a trap.’ The officer, choosing not to attempt to have to justify the reason for the unconstitutional stop, then lets the car go.
Just like that, they were let through a DUI checkpoint with no search, seizure, or otherwise any inconvenience. Rights = Flexed.
Sobriety checkpoints — also known as DUI checkpoints — are the most common roadblocks you might encounter. They function as a general purpose investigatory tactic where police can get a close look at passing motorists by detaining them briefly. A roadblock stop is quick, but it gives police a chance to check tags and licenses, while also giving officers a quick whiff of the driver’s breath and a chance to peer into the vehicle for a moment.
