4th of July DUI Checkpoint refusal goes viral. What do you think?
(Type: video | Published: 2013-07-07T17:27:10+0000)
[david buzzard] - I think it's complete bullshit. No probable cause, no need to stop innocent people. Unconstitutional and WRONG
[joshua strunk] - Dumbshit went looking for trouble and found it.
[kevin rott] - It would just be easier to roll the fucking window down. This guy is a tool.
[nathan cragg] - Video doesn't give 100% of the facts and can never be trusted no matter how bad it looks. Anybody who's deployed has probably experienced bad AJ media pushes, nothing different here
[ed sells] - Kid was a turd that was checking the system. It's a DUI checkpoint. So in my opinion, any bit of non cooperative actions or smart ass remarks is going to raise flags to a lawman. If the shit head would have just cooperated accordingly..
[nathan peterson] - I think the kid could have just rolled down the window and they never would have asked him to pull over and step out. What the officer did after that was questionable but clearly by the video this kid was trying to see what problems he could create by being a complete tool.
[ed sells] - AMEN NATHAN CRAGG
[dennis rooney] - It's a DUI check point. Anything other than that, you need probable cause
[adam levy] - While stationed at Schofield Barracks Hawaii.. I was on Staff Duty (obviously in uniform.) I was stopped at a checkpoint on my way to go pick up soldiers. I was asked to pull over, show I.D., and questioned while I was out driving so late. I was 30 min late to picking up the soldiers. Pissed me off...
[terrance watson] - more Nazi tactics
[james l. hynes] - The more we give in, the more they will take.
[joshua strunk] - My dad always said "don't start nothing, won't be nothing"
[eric foster] - Clearly an abuse of authority if the video represents all the facts.
[chuck snyder] - How hard is it to roll down the window?
[joshua strunk] - This stupid assed kid got what he deserved.
[ralph messer] - an innocent person would normally comply. if he had complied at the beginning the entire event would have lasted less than a minute rather than the +5 it did. to a police officer someone refusing to comply or who resists in any way is suspicious and gives them reason to believe the person is hiding something or is generally guilty of committing a crime.
[sean laney] - I know you got those WMD's in there somewhere boy
[bob cook iii] - Those cops should be fired, I'm tired of these guys running around like they are judge and jury and never follow the laws themselves. How many laws did these cops break during all of this? Doesn't matter because nobody will do anything about it anyway.
[jeremy montanez] - Looks like he was starting shit to see how far he could go. Plus it's a checkpoint, and is established for a reason. it's not a regular traffic stop.
[traci ward-miller] - It is a DUI checkpoint. That being said, this kid was being incredibly disrespectful. He he would have done what was asked of him and not copped an attitude, this would not have happened. Instead, he gave the officer PC for what he did. Also, we are only getting part of the story here. I'm interested in what we didn't see prior to the start of this video.
[michael ogle] - It's important for the public to see what they are paying for, I'm glad the video is out there.
[freddy canales] - This guy was being a dick so of course they will be ass holes
[terry cobbs] - Where was this at?
[dan walker] - Lovin at about 5:32.....Oh SHit Hes recording this lol
[paul paquette] - cops out of control
[richard ferrero] - @Kevin Rott, just because it would be easier doesn't mean that you have to do it. "The government is right, they will take care of you" isn't always the right answer.
[danny gonzo] - i think people who act like an asshole at a dwi checkpoint shoul be ripped out of the car. tryin to be a liberal "i have my rights" type of person just to try and look cool makes yourself look like a perp. what are you proving. that if you act suspicious you dont deserve to be question like your suspicious. good luck not opening your window all the way down on me either. you want to see if you can fit through a 4 inch opening be my guest. stop being a street lawyer you loser
[tommy mcz] - He is proving a point, that we live in an occupied country and are not free!
[terri christofalos burl] - The "quality" of the video is terrible so it's hard to tell but aren't we all used to DUI checkpoints on holiday weekends? If the guy rolled down his window and talked to the cop, NOTHING would have happened and he would have been on his merry way. But when you want to purposely be difficult so you can make a video (?), then wtf do you expect will happen? The cops will push back. DUH.
[aaron fisher] - I think regardless of how much bullshit people say it is its going to happen so why not just not give the police a reason to be a dick its unconstitutional so what if you haven't relized it yet wether its right or wrong that's not how this country works we have a bully complex big bad america with our freedoms that aren't really clear so the grey area can be filled in by the gov. Yes we have it lucky we have a lot of freedoms that other country's don't so if one like this one gets tampered with because maby this town has a problem with drunk driver's or maby this town has a high drunk driver casualty rate and there trying to lower it get over it there keeping your ass from getting hit by a drunk
[jason hargraves] - This guy is a cock sucker, end of story. I propose all piece of shit hippy liberals defending this dickhead, not get help the next time they need it from cops.
This guy is giving the cop a hard time for no damn reason, and everyone behind him, is being held up because of his douchebaggery. Fuck this guy, and fuck all of you who think this guy is in the right. DUI Check-point, not random pull over.
[wayne collins] - Shit like this happens all the time. As you can see, officers like being in charge of the situation and don't like hearing the word no....or having their authority challenged.
[gina marie] - There's a difference between enforcing laws and being a dick on a power trip!
[lam santos] - Don't be a dick and go along with check point retard
[eric henderson] - Last I checked, driving is a privilege, not a right.
[ana maria plasencia] - Kid was intentionally trying to piss off the cop cause he was recording it! Stupid asking for trouble!
[manuel cuellar] - It seems like some people clearly don't care about our rights.
[michael hassell] - Yea cause innocent people should NEVER question police or authority in general. WTF
[jim culler] - I think every American should do this at checkpoints if they know everything is ok on their end.
[seth resler] - It's not about him being a dick or not... Asshole or not your constitutional rights cannot be taken
[alex hatfield] - Fuck yeah, dude. Kudos to that kid.
[preston d miller] - instead of being an ASSHOLE he had just rolled down the window and answered the questions that might not have happend
[scott duvall] - Just another smart ass "legally educated" jack ass kid who does shit like this with intentions of being legally defiant, and hopes of getting people in trouble. If you aren't guilty, simply comply with the officers and be on your marry little way in under 30 seconds tops... If you give them a reason to search your vehicle, they will!
[chip boothe] - "Let me see your papers"..... just like a bad spy movie.... 4th amendment violation, the government is out of control at all levels
[matthew vincent blackstock] - DWI checkpoints have been ruled constitutional by the supreme court. I do think they searched his vehicle because they thought he was being a dick. For more research on this issue: Michigan Dept. of State Police v. Sitz, 496 U.S. 444
[jose tomas] - Roll your windows down, be nice and comply and you'll be on your way but no you have a camera and want to be a dick so for their safety they detained you because you all of a sudden need to tell them of your rights. Ok. Here's a deal; next time you're in trouble do NOT call 911 because since they violate rights they can't possibly help as righrs violators huh?
[tim-jory hardman] - This guy is a tool. Do what they say and if you didnt do anything wrong then you go home. What a cry little baby? If you dont like america then move to Mexico or somewhere else.
[brian hambright] - Comply? They are CPUs not the Gestapo, if we can heat eachother that's rolled down far enuf. He works for me a taxpayer not the other way around. If he want drunk then move on. Should know better
[billy ricioppo] - They should have beat the SHIT out of this little punk pussy.
[seth resler] - Everyone saying just comply with the orders. Sheeple!
11 Bravos: 4th of July DUI Checkpoint refusal goes viral. What do you think? - 50th Comments
[caren depreo] - DUI check points are good to an extent. This situation could have obviously been handled in a different manner. I understand both sides and alot of this (on both sides) was unnecessary.
[steven wesley wantz] - I think that the passenger could have handled this differently. The police risk their lives in bad situations everyday. This person could have been a wanted criminal for all they knew. It's a simple request to roll down his window so the officer could see the person driving completely. The man could have rolled his window down and gently reminded the officer that although he is doing so, he is not required to do so... Could have avoided the entire situation. The driver was being cocky and pretentious.
[william green] - It's not about how hard it is to roll down his window, or if he has nothing to hide what is the problem. The Officer could have done his job through the more than sufficiently open window. This is PART of what we swore an oath to protect; Amendment IV
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
[christopher myth] - i had almost the same thing happen a couple weeks ago i was already on the side of the road texting then fell asleep cops woke me up tol me to move so i did i pulled off to send a text message they pulled me for no reason ran my ID said i had felonies on my record no convictions and stated i was a danger to myself and everyone around me after seeing my concealed weapons permit and searched my car
[eric west] - Yeah FTP Tony Janssen, Robert Forrester, Jerry Gore
[jay call] - Prime example that kids today have ZERO respect for authority...SHAME ON THE STUPID KID.
[rob hammond] - Doesn't matter if u give consent to search or not, if I have that little thing called PC then I don't need your consent
[justin green] - Its pussy sheeples om here is why the govt has the power it does. Go walk off a cliff sheeples
[adrian velazquez] - It's simple....... You were acting like an ass and they treated you like one. Cooperation goes a long way guys. I'm a police officer. Our job it's tough at it is. They were out there looking for drunk drivers. People who can cause harm to the public. The last thing we need is a smart ass. Just talk to the officer and go on your merry way. It's as simple as that.
[jacob sones] - Haha, if you have to try *that* hard to get your rights violated then I think its safe to say we're not living in the police state that people like to make it out to be.
[doug mills] - all he had to do is roll the window down and let them ask him the questions if he was doing no wrong he would have been on his way. but he had to be a smart ass be cause he is 21 and knows hes constitutional rights
[kevin dunham] - This happened in my county. Murfreesboro TN.
[scott baer] - All this kid did was cause himself a lot of hassle. If had just complied, (YES I said complied) it all would of been over. Let say it was reverse and you were trying to keep the streets safe from drunk drivers and this tool bag came through. He possibly could have caused a real drunk to be over looked because they were dealing with this douche bag.
[andrew dickinson] - I'm not a cop or an lawyer didnt see him do anything wrong but def was a punk
[nahbahe vice] - the kid is a tool, just roll the window down. tool wanted to be famous like most other tools who do this. too bad he didn't get pistol whipped then this video would have been worth watching.
[steve bork] - Last I checked, you have the legal right to deny to any illegal search and seizure...
[michael thompson] - So in otherwords, you're saying he should just let the officer take his rights away? The officer broke the law and was an ass hole. And before you decide to say I don't know what I'm talking about, I am a cop
[troy graves] - When the cop says "the kid knows his right!" That was all I needed to hear. There are some great men and women that wear the uniform but there are a whole lot of asshole cops out there too.
[james ritchey] - While I agree to a point with the kid He should have just done what the cop asked him and then be on his way
[christopher myth] - Your getting the whole story trust me these videos are all over YouTube they are well documented look up dui checkpoints and know your rights
[seraph abaddon] - Videos like this are exposing the pigs abuse of their badge. You all forget that you are free and that cops are PUBLIC SERVANTS. But I guess you all prefer to be slaves of the system.
[francie garcia] - I went through something very similar omw to camp lejune. I got pulled over for "swirving". I was 8 months pregnant and had my children and my exhusband (Hispanic) in my nice new SUV with out of state tags. They asked for permission to search my vehicle. Not wanting to have my kids get out along a major highway, I refused. They then brought in their canine who "alerted" to drugs. Of course there was NO DRUGS..and after they searched my vehicle we were free to go. Its been 5years and it still pisses me off every time i think of it.
[matt estrada] - This is ridiculous. You can't hear or see anything past the two minute marker. It also shows absolutely nothing other than the "film maker" trying to cause trouble.
And what is with the captions/storytelling? I want to see the whole video. The parts where it shows furtive movements on the driver's side before he pulls over. And the parts where it actually shows the kid "being yelled at". And the parts where the Sheriff tells him his rights don't matter.
This video is bogus.
[james ezzell] - Should not have gotten out of the car. First mistake...
[alexx garcia] - This guy is pretty cool fuck all yall bitches
[scott womack] - Your not a smart ass for stating your rights, your a dumb ass if you don't.
[laurie stewart] - While the kid was perfectly within his rights, why be a jerk and make the cops job harder? They risk their lives for us everyday.
[johnathan ritter] - Its not about being an asshole or not. Its about allowing someone to NOT take the freedoms we have worked so hard for. America was not founded to be a police state, yet people ALLOW it to be. The kid has rights, and he's all of a sudden an asshole because he knows those rights, and refuses to willingly let them be trampled? Give me a break. You people that allow it to happen are what's wrong with America. And you have the definition of liberal pretty damn backwards. What you are referring to as liberal, is libertarian. A liberal sees what the cops are doing as OK, and should be allowed. Its NOT ok.
[doug hammond] - Young punk wanted to be a smart ass, got what he wanted - attention
[tom adrahtas] - Dumbass begged and baited the Officers to check him out 100%. I run into these turds all the time. Here in Oklahoma anything they do to hinder the cop from performing his job can be charged as "Obstructing an Officer in the performance of their duties". DUI checkpoints (in Oklahoma) aren't just randomly put up. They are published /or announced on TV news. If you chose to travel upon State/Fed funded highways you are subject to safety checks as you do so. We elect the politicians who enact these laws, so we as a people have/do allow these check points. And NOWHERE in the US Constitution does it state that you only need to crack a window at a DUI check point.
[erik wilson] - The police state is getting worse and closer to totalitarianism!
[shawna michael allen] - I could be wrong, but I thought vehicles COULD be searched with probable cause, and that the same rules of search seizure that apply to your home do not apply to motor vehicles. And of course, probable cause, being a subjective and vague term, is open to interpretation by law enforcement.
[shawn connolly] - Why do people troll guys just trying to do there jobs. The guy got upset because the kid refuse a simple request. The cop was still wrong and abusing his power but the kids a fucking shithead too just let the guy do his job and get on your way
[sammy e. gutierrez] - I understand what he is trying to do but was it worth all the BS that went along with it. I am the first person to question the authority of the law but did you out right go looking to piss off these officers and just bring trouble on yourself? This was a STUPID move TOOL!
[matthew vincent blackstock] - There are no DWI checkpoints in Texas. Mainly because the Texas Department of Public Safety has not instituted a policy on this issue yet. I wouldn't want to be stuck dealing with this all night.
[robert forrester] - Hey Tony Janssen,Jerry Gore,A.g. Edwards, and Eric West...these people are straight bitches!!! Lmao
[nickolai kalashnikov volasqui] - I'd arrest him for being a jackass anyway
[jason hargraves] - Oh, shit, forgot they had cars back then ... wait, retard.
[keith green] - I torn on this. had a few run in's with nation park police when I was stationed at ft. myer,Va.I complied and came away bleeding anyway.
[kelly mcgerr] - All you ppl are stupid. FUCK THE POLICE!!! SHEEPLE!!! Off to slaughter! !!
[justin leon] - lol well then they will just bring a K9
[jason deroo] - I am blown away by a majority of the comments here chastising the guy in the car. He exerted his rights as an AMERICAN and did not back down from the Police. They had ZERO right to do anything to him. These fucking criminal cops are abusing the very same Constitution they took an oath to UPHOLD. Make their job easier? Fuck them! DUI Checkpoints? A pathway to illegal search and seizure, invasion of privacy! Immigration checkpoints on the MIDDLE OF THE STATE! Not even on a border! A "FREE" country but I have to have my "papers" checked on occasion? FUCK YOU!
Some people need to rethink on how many RIGHTS we are losing every single day in the name of "Security" and "Safety". We are being STRIPPED of all rights right under our nose and WE are letting them do it!
[julian galeote] - No - we have rights! The cops and authorities have to respect our rights! Have you seen people being hog tied dragged out of their cars and had blood drawn at DUI stops? If you refuse to do the sobriety test, you get hauled to jail, I am ok with that. I am not anti cop! Many (as your brother) are fine officers; but really sister! its not ok to violate anyones constitutional rights. Not ours, not the officers and not that young mans. Respectfully - J
[a.j. mcguffin] - This kid is the reason why police officers have such a hard time protecting the public. This kid brought all of this himself. Had this kid not acted like an ass none of this would be on the Internet. Police officers have a very dangerous job and are grossly under paid. I'm all about freedom and I have had my run-in's with police but this kid got everything he deserved.
[mark currier] - I'm throwing the bullshit flag...this fucking douche canoe is writing an op-ed and his vag hurts because he was stopped...I'll bet he "occupied"something too.
[brian bashaw] - This kid's a tool that probably drove through checkpoints just to make this f-ing video. Friking kids have no respect and need a good slap in the f-ing head.
[ryan lefty cahill] - DUI checkpoints are clear violations of the 4th, 5th and probably 9th amendments. You don't have to answer a cop when he asks you if you have had anything to drink or what you have been doing late at night. The dragnet of a check point also violates your right to travel and subverts probable cause by inspecting everyone. While they are well intentioned, it is a gross violation of the letter of the bill of rights but also the spirit those words inspire. Good on this kid! Police will never grant you your rights willingly you have to assert them.
[efrain hector muñoz] - Hell yeah, fuck the police because the police always fuck the public.
[eric dalton-taylor wessling] - I agree, but I don't recall any smartass remarks, the young man, simply knew that he didnt have to concent to searches. normally It's not an issue and I agree that you should just cooperate, but at the same time there are many cops that use their power beyond what is needed.
Furthermore, You actually are not required to go through a DUI checkpoint, if you can legally get away from one, you should.
[corey j rose] - I think its hilarious
11 Bravos: 4th of July DUI Checkpoint refusal goes viral. What do you think? - 100th Comments
[jason hargraves] - Based on the way you put that, not sure who's side you're on.
[jimmy garner] - Fuck that shit, DUI checkpoints are bullshit and just an excuse to harass people and flex their authority over us. More bullshit that keeps becoming more and more accepted. If I'm not doing anything wrong then I shouldn't even be having this conversation on the side of a public road much less ordered to roll down my windows. That cops a dick and him and the rest of the gang probably fucked up that kids car for absolutely nothing all because he didn't comply with their bullshit threats. Eat a dick
[scott womack] - As a soldier I fight for the Bill of Right.... That's what makes America great, that's what make her worth defending
[joe cosentino] - All the kid had to do was roll the window down...the glair from the window makes it hard to see into the vehicle.(remember night time check points?) This kid is a asshole and the officers returned the favor ...
Constitutional rights, if you in danger my family by drinking and driving you will only have the right for me to stomp your sissy ass... kid got what he deserved .
[jason babylon] - I love it. This is a great example for all u idiots out there that think cops r the good guys. Hes not a stupid kid nor does he have no respect for authority. Hes informed n knows what his rights are, something cops dont count on us to be. Who polices the police? Nobody n thats why they get away with shit like this more often than we think. Get informed on ur rights people. This country has been n is a police state 9 outta 10 times they operate without any conciquences for their actions in violating our rights just to show their power n make up for the few inches their missing between their legs. Get informed before its too late
[jason garris] - This individual is an idiot. Just because it is a DUI checkpoint, does not mean they do not have justification to investigate and detain anything suspicious due to probable cause. By refusing to roll down the window (though well within his rights), he immediately came off as being resistant and combative. He dug his own grave. He could have resisted or informed in a more tactful manner. You gave them probable cause, they exercised it. Well done at showing the world that, you sir, are an idiot.
[billy ricioppo] - Retard, the law says you have to comply with a law enforecement officer performing their job of upholding the law and public safety. This kid is a little douche. They should have beaten the shit out of him.
[joe jackson] - Fortunately for me, my brushes with the law, have been good ones. The LEO's I encountered have been polite professional and have never requested anything that would come close to relinquishing my Constitutional rights.
[brian connelly] - DUI checkpoints save lives. Simply comply with the cops and you're on the way. Acting like this just to be a dick on a big holiday like the 4th is un called for. A lot of innocent people fall victim to drunk driving on Americas roads.
[a.j. mcguffin] - If my son ever made a video like this and I saw it, he would be begging for that same cop to show up to my address as I was whipping his ass....just sayin
[jason hargraves] - Michael, you're a retard. Volunteer firefighter, isn't a cop nor is MP, So, shut the fuck up, and quit making yourself look like a dumbass.
[mark kuras] - I hope there is going to be a lawsuit
[shawn armstrong] - Probably cause, if they believe you're drunk, you don't want to cooperate, they can legally, haul you down to the station and draw blood. You intentionally acted suspiciously. See the officer look in the window, plain view doctrine, if he sees something suspicious, probably cause to search the vehicle. Not to mention, I wouldn't take this assholes word that he's never had pot, or some other substance in his car. Hey, he didn't get that stupid naturally.
[troy graves] - Fuck the police! This isn't about doing what the cop said cause he's a cop it's about that mans rights being violated by the cop. The law applies to everyone including the people that enforce it.
[dan walker] - Ok ,we all can tell this guy intentionally did this. I wouldn't be surprised if he went through the check point on purpose to film the scenario. OK, Yes DUI Checkpoints are necessary, if ya don't think so you are an idiot, people killed by drunk drivers during the holidays are greatly increased, as they are greatly reduced by DUI Checkpoints. So yea if he'd have rolled down his window and showed his license reg and insurance he'd have gone on his merry way. NOW lets consider the reality here, h wanted to show how if you are not compliant to the request of the law they will do whatever they want, innocent or not, infringed rights or not. Id like to see the outcome of all this, if there is any further actions.
[ken mcknight] - WOW! Maybe I have just gotten too old, I never thought I would see the day a bunch of grunts would say things like you are a liberal if you stand up for the Constitution, I fought for the Constitution does that make me a liberal hippie trouble maker too? YES the kid could have just rolled the window down further, the point is he dd not have to. Rosa Parks could have just gotten up and went to the back of the bus, the founding fathers could have just taken the oppression from England. There was a time when the government was afraid of it's citizens... now we should be afraid of it. "If you have nothing to hide just cooperate" WOW sounds like the response we got from our current administration over all the recent electronic eavesdropping, maybe you are the liberal and just don't know it.
[missy maria] - I always comply with officer because I know that I have nothing to hide or have committed a crime, and guess what, LEOs have always treated me respectfully. DUI check points are to prevent some drunk asshole from killing your family, I bet that if a drunk driver killed one of your loved ones you'd be screaming at local official for more DUI check points. Both the kid and the officers were assholes, and if you think that these checkpoints are unconstitutional you obviously didn't read the fine print when you sign your drivers license. Driving is a privilege not a right.
[david dills] - All of their tactics are just ways of entrapment. Going along with something to make.it easier on yourself doesn't make it right. He's just showing everyone the true America and people just don't like what they see. They'd rather live with their blinders on bc they think they'll be happy in their ignorance. Perhaps they are right, but ignorance isn't for me. Let it go viral
[ben blair] - Power tripping jerk cops.
[jason hargraves] - DUI check-point, on the fourth. Maybe we shouldn't have them? And everyone getting pulled over by a cop to protect you and your family, should be fucked with?
[jason hargraves] - Congrats, you're a retard, choke on a dick.
[lawrence smith] - The cops are not ABOVE the law They should not bully under the color of authority.
[patrick curry] - It shows what not to do dumbass
[john johnson] - Glad to know so many of my brothers on here hate police so much. This is a setup video, a DUI checkpoint is constitutional, the reason for the window down is so the driver can pass the smell test and be right on down the road. Also most states have statutes requiring you to identify either by ID or DOB yourself when asked to.
[ana maria plasencia] - I thinkl it's just easier to roll down the window and give him your license. As for taking the sobriety test and the search that's a different story. This officer, yes, copped an attitude and was a "dick", but the kid kind of provoked him. Also respectfully, A. :)
[marc schumacher] - typical bullshit
[brian burlingame] - Simple case of Asshole VS. Asshole
[scott womack] - Grunts not standing up for the Bill of Rights!! Wow!
[pat maison] - I believe in rights and not giving the cops a hard time but if the police did not have a reason other than the guy stating his rights under the constitution then they were totally in the wrong. I know the police have a hard job to do but they need to know the law from top to bottom and inside to out just for reasons like this. Really if this was to go to court it would be considered harassment.
[stephen bogan] - Where is this from
[douglas bawden] - DUI check points can save lives, the kid here could of saved himself a lot of time by just answering a few questions. But the cops took it to far by using the police dog on his hood. The police never put their hands on the kid, they did their job, protect and serve. Only smart assets and criminals would give them a hard time. I served this country 22 years in the Army and I respect those guys that do the job right. And yes their are a lot of crooked cops out their but not all. If you speed your guilty.
[benjamin honer] - But when a drunk wipes out a whole family, people blame the cops for not doing enough...
[mark spearman] - That and the, "He's innocent and he knows what the Constitution says.".
[julian galeote] - XOXOXO - :-) J
[anthony jones] - Jason has a chip on his fucking shoulder. Cop had no right to do what he did regardless of his position. If you can't see that he is violating his rights than maybe you should go back to middle school
[missy maria] - Everyone is like "Fuck the police" until they need one.
[alex mendoza] - I think its BS we do have rights in our own country and we are watching them erode
[rj watters] - I love that half have the "it's ok, the police are just looking out for us" mentality, and half of you realize how fucked up these dick heads are. I don't hate cops, I hate abuses of power. These dickheads are power-drunk And love the idea of controlling other people, regardless of the rules
[thomas h braden] - I think both are wrong the kids an ass for not doing something as simple as rolling down his window and that triggered the cops "now i gotta be a super douche" complex and it escaladed from there.
[roy hernandez] - Good thing he didn't have his dog with him... They would have shot it too...
[joe pitts] - I think cops should stop doing DUI check points then we could have more drunks on the road killing off idiots like this. But I am sure this same guy would be furious at the cops if one of his friends or family were killed by a drunk driver , then he would say that they were not doing the job they are paid to do.
[joseph hammock] - I think if that fucking college queer were to listen and respect the officer, he woulda just went right through with no issue.
[ryan lefty cahill] - Average national response time for a officer is over 5 min. Average response time of my S&W is 1.3 seconds from concealment and .8 seconds from open carry.
[jimmy garner] - Jason if you're talking to me I'm on the side of a free society not a Nazi run society that feels they can do whatever they want whenever they want to the public. Drunk driving is dangerous and illegal I agree but you have to do police work and pull them over as you suspect the crime. Not a blanket harassment of citizens that may not appreciate you wasting their time and then wanting them to bow down like dogs in the process. This isn't North Korea
[matt estrada] - Furthermore, Ed never said that the kid made "any smartass remarks". Simply that through a DUI checkpoint, suspicions are high and anything uncooperative will raise flags.
I'd also like to meet the guy or gal who can "legally" get away from a DUI checkpoint just because he or she doesn't want to go through it.
[brent agee] - This pisses me off so bad! Anytime a citizen wants to protect their rights suddenly you have no rights. This isn't like the idiot on YouTube walking down the street with a ar. So sick of this bully mentality that police officers have theses days. I think bubba and a whole lot of officers need a refresher course on public laws and the constitution. Hey let's just make them up as we go. Land of the free not anymore. More like land of the new policed and spied on nation. Done out
[ralph messer] - but, the kid had the camera rolling BEFORE the stop. his intent seemed to be to create a confrontation and put it on youtube. and did he have the cop's permission to film them? many cops have been killed by felons who were more co-operative than this kid. and it may not necessarily be illegal to refuse to answer a cop's questions, it may not be wise. the cops have a reasonable right to ensure the person they are talking to isn't going to kill them or has, or intends to commit a crime. answering a cop's questions may be "inconvenient" for you, but answering them won't take that much time and would only be an issue for someone who has something to hide.
[michael w. spielman] - This kid was an idiot who just wanted to act like he knew everything. All he had to do was roll down his window and it's over but no... Kids today are stupid and think they can do whatever they want. DUI checkpoints help keep ppl safe and this kid wasted these officers time just to prove a point...fuck off
[richard watrous] - Officer: The fact that you consider a person a "smart "ass" because they know their rights and exercise them proves that you are in the wrong profession.
[jj nahoun] - This kid is a douche bag. It could've all been avoided from the get-go when he refused to roll his window down. He is the kind of person to know a little of the law, and try to give cops a hard time; but then he's the first to scream for help on 911 when he's getting his ass beat for... Yup, being a douche bag.
11 Bravos: 4th of July DUI Checkpoint refusal goes viral. What do you think? - 150th Comments
[douglas bawden] - The cops had the law behind them, it was a lawful DUI checkpoint, plan and simple. For all those who dislike this, I hope a DUI takes out someone you care about and then you will complain that the cops were not out there doing those job. Your the ones dragging this country down.
[tommy mitchell] - Just to throw this out, most people think DUI and DWI is for alcohol but it also includes drugs.
[brian morgan] - Its called being punished for excercising your rights. The police should not have this kind of authority. Sure its inconvenient for the police but they are still in the wrong. Its the same story with tasing people, its way over abused, and it CAN kill people. This kid knew what he was getting into bu excersising his rights and it is important to see what we take for granted being taken away.
[ernie sheets] - kid wasn't out of line. we do have rights. soldiers know this. respect it!!!
[dan walker] - How is it that simple when The Officer clearly admitted the guys innocence and violation of his rights? The kid clearly did this on purpose to prove a point. Would I give an officer a hard time at a check point, no. I get it, lookin for bad guys. But this shows the average citizen isnt permitted to exercise his rights. Once he was out of the car they knew he wasn't drunk. Exercising your rights does not equate guilt.
[bret patrick] - Know your rights. He was making a point. They are suppose to by police officers not the SS. All you idiots that said this kid is stupid go fuck yourself. You fight for the constitution but get mad when a kid exercises his rights? Get real morons!
[steve morris] - The kid has rights and he used them he wasn't being rude and the cops violated them anyway
[jesse knott] - This guy was a duche nozzle... the officer is doing his job to ensure that people are not driving drunk and endangering other peoples lives and this dick needs to give him shit...
[darlene surles honaker] - If you have nothing to hide; what's the big deal? You just made yourself a number on some list some where.
[ragtop rider] - That was an edit. Cut out the first part of the statement. Show what you want to show.
[douglas bawden] - I wish I was this kids parent, he would not be a happy camper even if he is 21
[othoniel cruz] - That's fuck up!!! I swear to god I will make them fix the paint of my car and sue them...
[mark bergman] - Well said man! Theses are a bunch of narrow sighted Fucktards! Welcomr to the Police States of America!
[ragtop rider] - BTW what he did was a felony in Massachusetts
[robby carlson] - If he would have done as he was asked there would be no other issues. But because he had to be a pain in the ass, they made is life miserable.
[steve levitt] - This kid is no lawyer and several of his points were just wrong. The police are conducting an investigation and certain things need to be complied with. No need to show ID? How about that car you're driving? How is the officer to know you're legally driving if you don't show a license. Fuck this kid and everyone like him.
[matt estrada] - I don't think beating the kid would have been a suitable way to go.
In either case, where exactly do we (as an audience) hear or see that his rights were taken from him? I only ask because I never saw that part in the video... unless you count the captions/story that was narrated by the kid who shot the video, in which case I don't. I could tell you I'm the Prince of Brazil, but that doesn't make it real!
[danny hunter] - More people need to exercise their rights. It may seem confrontational to the cop, but only because most people don't know or use their rights within the law. If more people did, they would be more understanding. The problem is that the authority wants compliance nothing else. Your rights are only a hinderance to them.
[jeff cuttell] - It's not liberals that are taking the side of the kid. It's conservatives.
[saa aldrete] - Most drivers licenses have written in them words to the effect that acceptance of such driver license you will "consent" to sobriety exercises. Operating a motor vehicle in a public roadway is not a right.
[jay onekill] - Joseph you 110 % right these lol college pussy are always challenging police there just trying to do there job and if you doin nothing wrong then cooperate and be on your way if your a real grunt then you know that liberal fucks destroyed this nation and its only going to get worst
[jason hargraves] - Eitherway, a bunch of fucking idiots.
[andrew funston] - ok, so because a person decided to exercise their rights of the Constitution they are an ass? I appears to me that many of you, if not any at all have read the Constitution or work in the criminal justice system. This kid was well within his rights to do what he did. The officers were assholes and I would have sued the shit out of them. I am all for law enforcement and I even plan on working for a law enforcement agency in the near future. I have a degree in Criminal Justice and I definitely see this kid was right. The Constitution does include cars and any other property. It appears that some of you are just going to roll over and let the government take your rights away. Rights that I myself as well as many others have fought and many have died to defend. These cops were just pissed because he was right.
[phil carlson] - So those who think this kid bought it on himself will have to face the fact that what he brought on himself is was the willful abuse of authority by the officers involved. The constitution restrains government authority for a reason. Police do not have to like it and it does make their job more difficult but they are our rights.
[rob bob] - He was doing his job, if you weren't such a dick right off the bat you would have been on your way. It's assholes like this that make cops the way they are. Really, video camera rolling to provoke a response on a guy trying to provide for his family. Pretty funny, you video and audio without his knowledge but when Obama phone taps you, you complain
[blake crochet] - Fucking drones.If you think this kids a douche you're retarded and you should self terminate yourself we need more civvies like this instead of the mass majority of pussified sheep we have here
[wayne collins] - Lol, liberal? STFU Jason you ignorant ass hat, I'm as conservative as they come. First off, I think the kid is a smart ass and could have avoided this whole thing by just rolling down the window and been done with it. He wanted a confrontation and he got it. But what I have a problem with is when the police over step the law and trample on people's rights while "doing their job". Because if this happened to you, you'd be crying like a little bitch!
[austin ellis] - They knew what was what when the camera was found can you sue for something like that?
[andrew funston] - so Scott Duvall, when the government wants you to allow you to search your home and take your guns, are you going to let them do that? I would hope not....dumbshit
[jeremy olson] - That kid needs to be smacked
[michael goetz] - yeah funny thing about the constitution is that its still the constitution regardless of what technology they had back then because it was a document that set the stage for how humans treat each other the world over. NO ONE can take away those rights, and if they do you should do everything within the law to ensure they are brought to justice. The kid was not being a "little douche" he was simply stating facts. In no way is the fact that they were looking for drunk drivers so that the public would be safer an excuse to infringe on anyone's rights. This is America a land that was founded by people who believed in personal responsibility, accountability, and the right to self govern. Oh and if they had "beaten the shit out of him." me and every infantryman i have ever served with would gladly "violently restrain" the aggressive police officer.
[larry garner] - you made it hard on a officer to do his job, thats why alot of people get roughed up
[terry shelton] - You acted by a jerk, like a barracks lawyer. Gro.
[douglas bawden] - I am an infantryman and the kid was wrong
[harry j. richards] - fukkin cops--Hman--an they wonder why they have adversity. My father was a Sgt detective in a big city--long before Miranda was the law. Just being around him was a constant source of interrogation.
[brent agee] - See this is the problem with what I'm reading. Just go along with bubba and his gang. When they say jump you say how high sir. I could care less if this guy is a liberal or conservative. Too many officers are coloring outside the lines these days. We are given rights and laws to protect us for this kind of conduct but too many sheep theses days just do not care. Stand your freaking ground. Once a bully bullies you the bully will always do this until you fucking knock their teeth out. Out
[tim giles] - Seems familiar some how?! Ummmm let me think, 1938... Germany perhaps?
[henry cadett iii] - As.a cop.. This cop performed his job poorly.. No pc, no search. Period. On to the next car.
[jimmy garner] - Real grunts also know we fought for freedoms that will not be violated no matter who you are. Government is eroding our country and turning into a place that punishes freedom of thought and encourages mass stupidity and fear.
[douglas may] - I would like to know where this kid got his constitutional law degree from.
[matt estrada] - Richard, whatever you decide to call someone is entirely within your right to do so. How does that prove anything to anybody, except how you think?
Dan, how do YOU know the officers here could tell this kid wasn't drunk as soon as he stepped out of the car? Were you there? Because if you were, I definitely have some follow up questions.
[jesse murphy] - I do not care for most cops because they have a tendency to abuse their power!!! The reason a lot of them are cops is because they could not gain respect when they were younger and now demand it. Regardless of how pissed off they get, should do things by protocol and if one gets away, there will always be a time for the one that got away. Good cops know that they do not need to be hasty and abusive because they will eventually always get their criminal. Because criminals do not stop being criminals until they pay enough consequences. enough said
[jay onekill] - Memo: police have the right to search the lungable areas in your car without a warrant which includes under seat side panels backseat
[ben sauriol] - The ends don't justify the means. Checkpoints are bad and according to stats do not reduce drunk driving deaths or incidents. All checkpoints do is restrict people from traveling as people have the freedom to do. We might as well just get rid of the constitution and live in a police state and have checkpoints every where like E. Germany or the old U.S.S.R.
The police are supposed to uphold the 4th Amendment not erode it.
[seraph abaddon] - Eat a dick asshole. It is illegal. Fucking tool!
[harry j. richards] - Oh Boo Hoo-I'm a smart ass--arrest me, detain me,, beat me-Hman
[mike liebig] - F those hillbilly redneck cops
[matt dasilva] - To many mouth breathing booger eaters on here, I bet not one person has took the time to check the legality and each state stance and policy on sobriety checkpoints before they opened their cock holster. The Supreme Court has deemed them constitutional but actions within are dictated by state and department policy and procedure. So before any judgement is made on the kid or the cops do some fucking research.
[jeff cuttell] - By being a douche, the kid raised red flags with the police at an established DUI checkpoint. He was looking for trouble and made it on his own. When someone is that stupid, any cop would think the person was high or drunk. He deserved everything he got. Cooperate by rolling down the window and answering the questions honestly instead of being a tool and that wouldn't have happened.
[shawn beasley] - Murica! Now pull over right dare boah!
11 Bravos: 4th of July DUI Checkpoint refusal goes viral. What do you think? - 200th Comments
[melissa catherine lewallen] - What ignorant rude asshole cops. The boy did nothing wrong you idiots.... Why don't you actually watch the video and see how his right were taken away the boy was completely in his rights and doing nothing illegal the WHOLE time.
[todd sedlak] - DUI checkpoints are illegal. Period.
[aaron steven parker] - So lets see here folks... We defend the constitution with our lives out blood out time.. We sacrifice our families our rights and then when a person exercises sai rights you call him a ass? So what are you defending against ?
[matt estrada] - How you define someone only defines who you are as well.
[ben sauriol] - The cops here should not be fired. They should be made to go through a Constitutional info class and learn what the 4th Amendment means and learn why we have the Bill of Rights. Maybe if they were educated they would have a different view and not act like this again. Ignorance can be corrected.
[john johnson] - All this talk about people (officers) violating rights is a joke, that guy is obviously a sovereign citizen type, I actually agree on several points, that being said:
1. DUI checkpoints pass constitutional muster
2. Not rolling a window down all the way on a stop is an officer safety issue, and also the first indicator that a driver is intoxicated and they know it.
3. During a stop, almost all states require DRIVERS to present DL and insurance to an officer. Walking down the street, no need to identify, or even speak to an officer if you don't want.
4. Sov citizen types call driving " traveling" like the author did, they often say that traveling does not require licensing, insurance, tags etc.
This was a setup, I'm embarrassed that so many of y'all THINK you know what your rights are, if an officer violates your rights, sue that ass! But so many cops are combat vets nowadays that be careful what you call a fascist. Educate yourself and learn to recognize a video designed to attempt to goad cops and bad cops doing bad things.
[brandon roberts] - Inbred cop fucks.
[josh artrip] - can we say lawsuit
[shane cox] - That's how fucked up cops r in Tennessee
[jay onekill] - Jimmy that the excuse perps use when the commit a crime and get caught I'm a true tower of power grunt 11 if you know what that means but this country is being destroyed by liberal asshole that want to say your free to do what ever you want there has to be a limit somewhere
[jose cardoso] - Saw this one..... Driver guy is a jack ass.
[sam gardner] - Boss hog and crew
[chris harrison] - reminds me of NAZI germany!
[jerry gullo] - 1. Kid was a little prick
2. You can tell a lot about a cop by the way he acts when angry
3. Cops need to understand that cameras are everywhere
4. Cops need to follow the constitution.
5. If that were my kid i would be proud that he understood the constitution.. Then i would have cracked him with a backhand for being disrespectful and instigating!
[jay onekill] - Just to put this out here to there are a lot of infantry men in the police dept
[callie-ann hughes] - If u had nothing to hide then just roll the window down farther your car wouldn't have been scratched or ransacked.... But on the other hand the cop should have answered your questions as well!
[carly cox] - It could have all been avoided if the guy just did what he was asked. He went out looking for a fight.
[charles robel] - cops don't protect they just serve they don't care about our civil rights..
[dan walker] - Where did this video come from? Can w follow it or have a sitrep on the outcome if any. Im interested to see if the kid was ticketed or if he filed a complaint.
[ben sauriol] - I don't understand how people who are against the TSA can be for checkpoints. To be detained with no cause or suspicion is not right. Should we allow cops to stop cars for no reason simply by how someone looks or because of a car they drive? No. Imagine if the police started doing that and the out cry from the public. That's EXACTLY what a checkpoint is. Stopping people for no reason at all. I'm surprise the Supreme Court of the U.S. has not dealt with this issue yet.
[herman benson] - New World Order :coming to you soon
[jay onekill] - Playstation generation smh
[walter west ii] - He was begging for that response. Good video of how to piss off cops and waste their energy. I hope a real drunk didn't get through and kill someone that night. He's right though, but he could have avoided the whole thing by respecting the fact that some of us are tired of drunks complaining about their contitutionsl rights, while families are burying their loved ones, or racking up hospital debt. Kid(butthole)+Cop(butthole for good reason)= Crappy time by all.
[airam magallanes] - Way a good kid!!!
[frank fee] - Cops should be shot in the face with a sawed off shotgun when they act this way.
[jesse murphy] - it is usually pretty obvious when someone has been drinking, And it was pretty obvious that this kid was not drunk. So, you really do not know what you are saying. And to wish harm on another persons family is just as wrong as standing up for disrespectful Officers that let their emotions get the best of themselves!
[matthew armstrong] - DUI checkpoint..not a do as we say and throw away yourrights checkpoint
[benjamin ferry] - Honestly, to the people who think the kid is stupid. What you're saying actually scares me.
I'm APPALLED at some of your remarks. "If he was doing no wrong, he should have complied and it would have been no big deal!"
You can't be serious. So when Hitler disarmed the Jews, if they were well intended they should just comply and hand over the guns blindly and it'll be okay. When the Jews were forced to move they should just cooperate and help prevent any confrontation too I suppose. When they were moved to concentration camps they shouldn't question authority then either, just comply to prevent confrontation.
I'm completely against the concept of checkpoints. They tell you it's a public safety thing. And it is. But what ELSE is it? It's the government t stopping everybody and treating everybody like they're guilty, conducting unlawful searches of your vehicle with no grounds for suspicion.
Maybe they should start conducting neighborhood searches too. Enter all your homes (people who don't like this kid) and just name sure you're all being safe with the crap in your house.
[david fitzgerald] - If he didn't do anything wrong, he should have helped out and cooperated so maybe the police could stop a dui that could have hit any head-on.
[anthony walker] - The guy was being a complete dick. It's real simple....on a checkpoint just answer all the questions without being a smartass. AND you do have to ID yourself to us when asked. And you can be detained for reasonable suspicion such as refusing to ID yourself. Refusing to ID yourself is a form of resisting. He could have just been polite and nothing else would have take place.
[tom keating] - Conform to the 'man', get in line... baa baa! Not a fan of freedom? Move to North Korea! Wow, guess I should`nt be shocked at the number of pathetic responses on here. Clearly ignorant of your rights, they are not allowed to do this, IT`S ILLEGAL! No wonder this country is in trouble, so many citizens are willing to lay down and surrender to this insanity. Careful what you wish for, sheeple...DUI checkpoints are NOT LEGAL and they never asked if he was drinking or did you miss that, because you were too busy just being a troll with zero to say.
[matt estrada] - You're right. You have every right to never answer any of these questions. You have every right to refuse doing any sort of field sobriety tests. You have every right to exercise every right you own.
DUI checkpoints are just that... checkpoints. Any movement or non cooperative statements will raise a flag or two.
I can only hope next time somebody decides to drive drunk, they don't hit anybody or anything, including you. I can only hope they're apprehended and given appropriate punishment. I can only hope they never decide to do it again.
[david rossetti] - well some of us live and die by our constitution, so if u have a tough job quick, being a police officer doesn't allow u to do whatever u like, their been a lot of stories when police officers go way beyond what there suppose to do, and yes I am vereran
[justin hawkins] - This is stupid if you do as asked when you pulled up and rolled the window down nothing further happens I am a 11b soldier vet and respect my brothers also have many 11b cops and this cop actually was very toliterable he could have beat your ass and arrested you for refusal and for obstruction to justic resisting arrest you go lucky for it to go as long as it did
[donald junko sauter] - What rights??? We have rights ??? Oh yea that must have been years ago...
[jeff walker] - Cop seemed to have thought of one foot out the door n to retirement make n him tired pissed n burnt out!! Yeah guy has a right to react way he did meaning make cops follow the rules but guy was a dick to pull your rights card when needed sure but don't need to pick the fight either
