    Questions to an Officer at a Police Road Block

    I want to share this. Please Comment.

    A few months ago I drove up on a license check, Cary PD road block in a Cary, NC neighborhood. It was morning and I think they were training some rookies. I stopped for the Officer, my doors were locked and driver window down a few inches, hands on the wheel. All weapons were under lock. I was asked for my license. I responded only by asking the Officer the following questions in rotation each time he spoke to me.

    1. What is the reason for this stop?
    2. Am I free to go?
    3. Am I being detained?
    4. Am I required to answer your questions?
    5. Am I under investigation?
    6. Have I violated the law?

    After about five or six tries, the Officer asked if I would like to speak to the Supervisor and he called another Officer to the car. The new Officer ask if he could help me. I asked "Am I free to go." He said "You are free to go".

    I drove away.

    I've heard it said that "the one asking questions is Master and the one answering questions is Servant." If this is true then at any time we each can decide if we will ask or answer. It may change the conditions at hand. If you are not under "detention" then all responses are voluntary and may be used against you. I don't expect cops to know what the law allows, I expect to have to show them. This may require having to endure Due Process and going up the ladder of authority to show them what the law allows.

    Later I addressed the issue of unconstitutional road block stops with Town Officials but they defend the policy by virtue of the NC Statues that "authorize" the practice.

    I don't have this encounter on record but I now carry a DVR, digital voice recorder, 24/7. It runs even while I sleep in case I need a record of events after hours. If you are a target they may come at night.
    Get a DVR, a Digital Voice Recorder, carry it 24/7. It's cheap, easy and makes a good witness in Court.

    Uhm what?

    Almost 200 views and no comments. I'm surprised. I wish I knew why that may be?

    Thanks. We agree. YouTube channel CheckpointUSA is great. He was one of my early teachers. I give him and his videos much credit.

    Please tell me more about illegal in WA.

    I love that Avatar!! HeHe

    To the topic, I find checkpoints to be the pratice of Natzi's who are just looking to arrest people for anything they possibly can. Im sure if you hold people in one place long enough, you'll find some sort of reason to arrest them.
    I try to respect LE anytime im in contact with them. If I see something illegal happen I try to provide them with all the info I can. If im pulled over I still maintain my respect, but I dont volunteer information. If they want to see ID I will show it to them, other than that im not answering any questions. If I broke the law then prove it!

    since 1988 DUI and Sobriety Checkpoints have been illegal in the State of Washington. In*Seattle v. Mesiani,*110 Wn.2d 454, 458, 755 P.2d 775 (1988)**the Washington State Supreme Court said "that stopping all vehicles at mandatory*checkpoints*to check whether drivers were intoxicated constituted an unreasonable intrusion into a person's private affairs".*

    And just think If you were an Illegal Alien it would be unconstitutional.
