    Check points are not constitutional!! Illegal search and seizure. Libs are too stupid to understand this.

      The Supreme Court disagrees with you, but, you probably don’t care, do you?

    Why when Bar’s let out at 2am do they conclude these at 12am, wasteful & worthless – come to mind..

    Let’s see how many Drivers they attempt to illegally pull over for turning off before their check-point, and end up chasing and killing someone innocent & unaffiliated with any of this.
