Narcotics Interdiction Checkpoints

• 420 Tribune

I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.  They were going to shut down the entire interstate to check for suspicious vehicles and persons, as if crossing into Louisiana were crossing the Mexican border?  Bienvenue en Louisiane, indeed.

After snapping a few shots of the sign, I pulled back onto the highway, ready to take additional pictures once I arrived at the checkpoint.  However, the checkpoint never surfaced.  Now I understand why:

The local sheriff’s office had established the signs as a “ruse” to direct motorists to exit off the highway after viewing the warning of the upcoming DUI/Narcotics checkpoint.  In fact, there was no checkpoint further down I-40.  Instead, the sheriff set up a checkpoint at the end of the ramp of the first exit available to motorists after the posted signs, an exit not frequently used since no services were offered at the exit.

No warrant needed.  The dog "alerted."  Google: "Pastor Steven Anderson".   This is America---You got no Rights, meat!

It has been reported numerous times that 50% of illegal drug cartel proceeds are spent bribing police and Politicians. Considering those reports, someone would be stupid to agree to police searching their vehicle at a drug inspection check point with or without a warrant. It is so easy for police to plant drugs to ruin someone's life.
