Not a fan of police checkpoints?

Do you recognize that no one, even if they wear a badge, has the right to impede your freedom of movement, or to search your property, when you’ve done nothing wrong?

The use of checkpoints has proliferated in “the land of the free”, especially since 9/11 and the accompanying security theater.

Whether that’s in the form of a DUI checkpoint in your town* or a now-permanent checkpoint on a road that never crosses the border**, more and more people are realizing what checkpoints are really about: control.

Educate others about checkpoints and their rights should they encounter one themselves, and you could win an an awesome HD camera that you can carry and/or dash-mount!

The Veho Muvi 3000 Gumball is an excellent in-vehicle camera as it can be set to record in a loop and powered via your cigarette outlet

* funded by a grant from the feds – remember, the coin provided via the grant was first stolen from someone via taxation, or printed out of thin air due to the fiat nature of federal reserve notes

** the border – an arbitrary political boundary used by criminal gangs to define their turf, and with it, people over whom they claim authority – has, according to the ACLU, has been turned into a “constitution-free zone”

*** the camera to be awarded is exactly the same as that pictured but unopened

    My first encounter with check points was in North Carolina. First of all the cops near Columbia, NC are dumb as a box of rocks.

    I come from a place where:

    a) Checkpoints are expressly forbidden by a court ruling based on the state constitution.

    b) When you’re attempting to pull someone over you don’t wave your flashlight back and forth.

    I had that cop so flustered he just looked at my ID and then let us go on.

    Nice report, guys! I have been saying for years that the key to exposing police corruption is documentation, the the pathological fear of cameras that most police have. I am really interested in that Muvi device, but I hope it can attach to a motorcycle helmet.

    POLICE OFFICER RAPES A THREE MONTH OLD INFANT AND A ONE YEAR OLD CHILD!

    When you see common sense, t., underoath, psosgt and all the other shills spew their boot-licking propaganda here on Cop Block, remember, THIS IS WHO THEY ARE, THIS IS WHAT THEY STAND FOR, AND THIS IS WHAT THEY DEFEND!

    Wichita KS police officer Officer Joseph T. McGill, 28, was convicted today of committing a sexual act on a 3-month-old child and a 1-year-old child. Officer McGill pleaded guilty in January 2012 in an unrelated case to sexual battery while on duty as a police officer and was sentenced to three years probation. Those charges stemmed from separate incidents in November 2010 and February 2011. The judge set sentencing for March 1.

    Glenn, now you can discount everything “Common Sense” says.

    “Now, you want my badge number to prove I’m a cop. I’ve never posted that I was, in fact, a cop.” A proud member of Team Blue would never deny his membership. A moment of unguarded thruth and it all tumbles down.

    So all of that copious BS about contacts per year and estimates of 3 negative encounters per billion-trillion contacts is shown for what it is. Garbage.

  • Lakewood_in_Afghanistan

    Not that anyone ever took him seriously in the first place. But now it is clear we have a badgelicker who is embarrased about his job as a “sandwich artisan” or guy who keeps the ketchup dispensers full. “t” must be so proud to be his spooning companion.

    If fantasizing about being an 85 IQ doofus make his days more tolerable, more power to him. But everyone here knows if there is a more degraded creature than a cop, then it is someone who wants to be a cop, but didn’t make the shamefully low cut. Like the guy who watches the cameras in Target who says he is in “Law Enforcement”.

    Really just sad.

    @Lakewood_in_Afghanistan, It is my opinion that common sense does a pretty fine a fine job of discounting himself, and like Napoleon said, never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake. And all the rats, shills, boot-lickers, and backstabbers that infest this webpage are exactly what we need to show the people what cops are all about.

    You see, the average reader that passes through Cop Block will see a massive amount of trolls defending the indefensible. And the people also see large amounts of resources spent hogging up the comments section, when that manpower could better be utilized elsewhere. Getting rid of the 35 million illegal immigrants, for example.

    In the end, readers have to ask “is there nothing better cops could be doing?”. The answer of course is no, because cops are almost always up to no good. And that is the best lesson Cop Block can teach, and a lesson the resident shills help up get across to the public.

    Deeply amusing to see him try to backtrack. But he is not very bright. His answers keep digging the hole deeper.

    I am surprised he let it go he is a badgelicker. Kind of punctures the whole “in my experience” thing he was pushing. Now he just seems sad and pathetic.

  • Lil Freeman

    Its a Violation of the Fourth all the way. Unless they have a warrant for a specific person or specific car or truck. Other than that those cops who participate in those check points need to be arrested for treason BOOYAH plain black and white simple . Cops get a clue you serve a Nazi driven FED .

  • Lil Freeman

    @ Glenn t , common, underoath, are the same dude posing as three names hes a troll based idiot whos been schooled by Centurion, myself and others many times and shut him down every time hes a lowlife scumbag and is not worth paying any attention to LOL hes a joke on the fifth level …

  • http://www.policemisconduct.net Glenn

    @Lil Freeman, yeah I have long suspected the three stooges were actually one nitwit. The syntax of all postings are very similar.

    Also, bear in mind there is no point in trying to warn the police that they are evil fascists, as they are quite well aware of that fact. They have no concern for the public, our culture, or our nation. They want only power for themselves and their fellow gang members, but what else can we expect from brownshirts?

    Hi CopBlock:

    I just found your site, and I love what your doing. I wish I had the ability to spend more time on Police accountability.

    My father is serving a prison sentence right now. His fiance had an affair with a city cop in East Providence, RI. The cop divorced his wife and was living on a junk boat for almost a year. One day, he influenced my father’s fiance to get a restraining order on my father, resulting in my father being removed from his house. That same day, the cop moved into my fathers house. Get the picture?

    The restraining order was eventually reduced to allow my father to operate his business from his yard. Allowing him access to the yard. The cop hated this. the cop and my father’s fiance exaggerated & crafted police reports, suggesting that my father broke the restraining order on multiple occasions. They were successful at prosecuting my father because 1) the cop knew exactly how to accuse my father. and 2) my father decided to defend himself in court.

    However, things didn’t go well and my father is now serving a 5 year prison term. During this process, my father was arrested 5 times, because of the accusations the police officer made to his own police department (in rhode island). He defended himself all 5 times and was dismissed with “no crime committed”.

    The cop hated this, then he took the same accusation to Massachusetts. Massachusetts convicted my father on charges that Rhode Island already confirmed as “no crime committed.”

    I just wanted to write this story.

    The officer is SGT. Mark Norton of East Providence Police Department in Rhode Island.

    East Providence is notorious for violating peoples civil rights.

    You guys she travel down to East Providence, you will have more video footage then any other city in the US.
