Not a fan of police checkpoints?
Do you recognize that no one, even if they wear a badge, has the right to impede your freedom of movement, or to search your property, when you’ve done nothing wrong?
The use of checkpoints has proliferated in “the land of the free”, especially since 9/11 and the accompanying security theater.
Whether that’s in the form of a DUI checkpoint in your town* or a now-permanent checkpoint on a road that never crosses the border**, more and more people are realizing what checkpoints are really about: control.Educate others about checkpoints and their rights should they encounter one themselves, and you could win an an awesome HD camera that you can carry and/or dash-mount!
