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 Gumball 3000 comes with everything you need – dashcam mount, carrying case, remote control, straps, mounts, 8GB mini SD card, USB cord, etc.

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
