OREGON — Police are announcing a blitz of forced ‘no-refusal’ blood-draw warrants for drivers this holiday weekend.
SCHERERVILLE, IN — A federal lawsuit alleges that police officers forged the results of a breath alcohol test and then forcibly penetrated a man’s body with a catheter to extract his bodily fluids.
MILWAUKEE, WI — A young woman had her neck broken in four places after her vehicle was T-boned by a police officer who blew through a stop sign. Even though she was completely sober, the police charged with drunk driving and tried to shift the blame onto her instead of the party at fault. When evidence surfaced that showed her innocence, it was hidden and ignored. The deputy responsible was never punished.
LOS ANGELES, CA — As drivers prove their innocence at warrantless police checkpoints this New Year, they will not only be scrutinized over their potential consumption of alcohol. A new technology will enable the police to detect and arrest drivers for having marijuana, narcotics, and “other drugs” in their bloodstreams.
LA SALLE COUNTY, IL — A woman says she was harshly treated after being detained for a suspected DUI. Surveillance video shows her being forced to the ground by several deputies, carried into a small room, and forcibly stripped naked. Now, the victim is seeking justice, and others are stepping forward claiming that they, too, were forcibly stripped naked by deputies.
TENNESSEE — Labor Day: another holiday, another excuse to push the limits of the police power over citizens. All across the state, Tennessee police will be performing another round of highly-publicized “no refusal” blood-draw DUI checkpoints this weekend. With police armed with a 2012 law that allows them to forcibly extract blood from drivers, its a bad time to be a citizen who does not consent to searches.
