    And you'd probably be the first one to cry foul when a drunk driver kills one of your family members when he/she could have been caught at a check-point. Or the criminal wanted in connection with a murder on his way to your house but hey- we're all entitled to our own opinions here.

    well I could say the same thing about the border, our biggest "checkpoint" that doesnt work either! How many illegals have been deported only to come back and kill someone? This whole "what if your family member...." argument is getting old. Its just not a good enough excuse to infringe on a right. Andhow can they really prove these checkpoints make the roads any safer. I believe its nothing more than a cash grab dragnet the reeks of laziness

    "why not? A little something called the 4th ammendment, but it has been twisted of course. I see youre just another person in a hurry to give up your rights to feel "safe"

    Why not? I have no issue with the police checking my license, registration etc. I've got nothing to hide. I'm glad they do it!

    Check Points are legal. If you were a cop you'd know that. I know first hand as a cop I schooled a defense attorney in court and was backed by the judge.

    yea theyre legal and immoral and oughta be banned from any nation that calls its self free. coming from a cop --whose primary function is to put you in jail-- i'll not give your opin much consideration.

    "Yes they are legal here, but the shouldnt be."

    Checkpoints and roadblocks are not illegal. Read G.S. 20-16.3A, it outlines the requirements for checkpoints. Good job LEO's for catching the person and without any harm to the public.

    Check points are illegal, but so are many things law enforcement does.
