    Suspicionless stops - Las Vegas's turn

    Tonight (Friday night), there will be a DUI roadblock at Flamingo & Boulder Hwy. Last time they had one there, it was the southbound lanes of Boulder Highway just north of Flamingo. No promises it'll be in the exact same location.

    I'll be there, OC, protesting the erosion of our freedoms. I may also hold up some home made signs warning motorists of the roadblock.

    Whether you support my position or not, take this opportunity to come out (OC, CC, or neither, your call) and witness what a police state looks like, and decide for yourself whether you feel safer having all those officers stopping thousands of innocent people in the name of "safety".

    This will be the 6th DUI checkpoint I've been to in the last year, and in 100% of the cases, OCing has never been an issue.

    Good Roadblock, I like how we got them to measure it out and spraypaint each 100" marker on the road, thanks greengum and flagellum and crew (not mentioned) for showing up, was it more fun than you thought? ?

    I had a good time. For those who didn't join us, it's a great demonstration that Metro is well aware of your right to carry openly. Surrounded by cops and doing something they hate, we weren't bothered or harassed. In fact, police were polite and professional.

    You have to continuously check the newspaper. The STOP DUI organization seems to know about them, so I'm trying to figure out how to "get on the mailing list".

    Cool

    My sister and her friend had a blast as did I. I think they didn't really care about the checkpoint but they sure did love trolling the cops when we warned people of the upcoming checkpoint. I highly recommend everyone do this at least once.

    I'm going to try my hardest to make the next one. Sounds like a blast. I love the pic of Tread holding up the sign.

    From the RJ

    There was a little blurb in the paper today stating the roadblock had 3k+ vehicles pass through, 24 drivers tested, 14 arrested for "possible" DUI.

    Yes we have pics and vids, we are going to post the bulk of them on Guerrillalawfare.com but will put some good ones on here as well. Our first priority is to sort the footage for the IA complaint.

    14 arrested; 2986 denied the constitutional right of peaceful passage. Good tradeoff.

    Don't view late at night...

    I think I woke up everyone in the house with a "Yeah!!!!!" that I couldn't contain. Thanks.

    Edit:

    ALso, I know this seems obvious, but I should state it anyway:

    It's video like this that helps the rest of us know exactly how to act, and how to handle such situations. Oh, and I thought your timing on when to pick up the camera was epic. Deer in headlights. You seized the moment that the interogater overstepped, and made them aware that it was just captured. Very nice. I gotta put the video-record button on the front page of my phone.

    I actually don't like this guys attitude...but that is just me...and I understand it is your right to object to the stops...

    On a lighter note, it is actually really neat to watch the exact moment when you can see the Sarg give up...all of a sudden there is a look of defeat in her eyes and she knows she is getting nowhere...she asks one more time still...it is interesting to watch.

    Are you talking about the cop that made the initial stop or the the one he called over to help him?

    The supervisor coming up has a pretty good look on her face when he busts out the camera, right after she told him he had to answer the question... Legal gold!
