Officer Jeremy Walker of the Crenshaw County sheriffs department in lower Alabama, was attacking fellow members on Facebook who had posted about a DUI checkpoint. He called them “ignorant” and stated
“To me, you are no better than the drunks, crackheads, crack dealers, burglars, armed robbers etc. that are out there.”
After it was pointed out to him that the Fourth Amendment specifically forbids stopping a citizen without probably cause, he let loose with this gem:
“If you are doing nothing wrong… we ask you prove it by showing your papers.”
It is rare to see one be so open about their intolerance for the Bill of Rights or their dedication to fascism.

While this particular incident is extremely minor, I thought it did a wonderful job of showcasing exactly what is wrong with the mindset of the police in this country.
