“You Should Be Happy That We’re Doing a Checkpoint”

The name of the St. Lawrence Sheriff’s Outfit employee who demanded a ransom of Mike for his window tint being darker than is decreed, is Michael Schryve


When at PorcFest in Lancester, in the ‘shire, I ran into Mike, who’d just had a run-in with some folks who, despite claiming to protect and serve him, hindered his freedom of movement and now claim that he owes them money, or else.

Props to Mike for speaking out about the rights-violation he was subjected to – after all, he’d done nothing wrong. He’d not harmed another person or their property. There was no victim making claims against him. What there was though, was a thief (someone who subsists on wealth stolen from others), who proclaimed that the windows on Mike’s truck were too dark.

What a joke.

Would you feel safer living having to cross a checkpoint multiple times a week when going to work, or to the store, or to visit friends? Do you think it will be easier, and more effective, to speak out and take (non-initiatory of force) action against the bad ideas that support the police state apparatus today, or next year?

    Don’t you think it’s about terrorizing American citizen’s only and yet the boarders are now wide open, as Obama the tyrant has made happen…. so the truth is these cops are terrorists.

    In a perfect world there would be a checkpoint at every drive way and you would have to be checked out every time you leave the house and go to work….But we do what we can within our budget….your welcome

  • why u crying?

    these sites sure do draw the crazies ..who by the way have no grip on the concept!…go cry and rant on the crybaby website

  • Truthspew

    I live in a state that in the 1980’s declared check points to be, wait for it, Unconstitutional. Yeah, Rhode Island.

    So I was sort of surprised while driving near Columbia, NC that I ran into not one but two check points in the space of 2 miles.

    I had the first cop flustered. Dumb ass is waving the flashlight in a motion that indicates “move on”. So when I finally do stop I tell dumbass that where I come from that move with the flashlight means move on and where I come from shit like that is UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

    ‘Federal Grant’ Money + Salary + Overtime + ‘Citations’. Cops seem to get paid four times for each hour on the clock. Maybe they can get ‘hazard pay’ too?

  • Ernie Menard

    In a perfect world, a citizen proving that he necessarily had to use deadly force against a police officer wouldn’t be all that newsworthy.

  • Ernie Menard

    Wow. For years I’ve been weighing the pro’s and con’s of moving back to Rhode Island, where I was born and raised. This single fact of a determination that checkpoints are unconstitutional is almost enough to make me pack my bags for good. Then again, prior to 9/11 the security agents at TF Green were Nazi-like, they’re probably much worse now.

    You sound like a statist dumbfuck. Go look for the pig bootlicking site, fagot.

  • keepitreal

    Rodney King – example of bad police in action. Belongs on Cop Block. Kelly Thomas – example of bad police in action. Belongs on Cop Block. Numerous other wrongful police killings, beatings, framing, lying and other criminal ass behavior – all actions of bad police who need to be exposed. This guy – tinted his windows beyond what the law allows, placing everybody else on the road at a higher level of risk. Doesn’t belong on Cop Block.

  • keepitreal

    So if I understand what you’re saying, a perfect world would be one in which police took wrongful violent action against citizens, and were subsequently killed, so often that nobody would even bat an eye when it happened. OK, well you can have that for your perfect world, mine will be one it which cops don’t act that way at all, so if one did and were subsequently killed, it would be in the news for the next 5 years or so.

    If you are looking for freedom, move to Iraq or Afghanistan.

  • Ernie Menard

    How does having windows tinted darker than the law allows place everybody else on the road at a higher level of risk? That’s a ludicrous statement.

  • t

    I can’t really figure what which is dumber…
    Mike because he allows himself to be so easily used by those on this site that are clueless
    Pete when he edits into the video to tell an out right lie.

  • t

    I’m so flattered.

  • t

    Wow. That’s really dumb. You are on the right site with that level of thinking.
    Dark tint puts other motorists and pedestrians at great risk. During the day time hours….when there is bright sunshine…that risk may be lessened. But during night time hours….and on days when it’s raining…that dark tint can make it nearly impossible to see other vehicles and pedestrians.
    And that’s not even touching on the reflective nature if said tint on the inside of the vehicle. At night….the dash lights or heavens a cell phone, reflect so much inside a heavily tinted vehicle that almost everything to the sides of the vehicle are rendered basically invisible.

    So….feeling like a dumb ass now? Good.

  • t

    Wow….you told him huh.

  • Ernie Menard

    Of course I don’t feel dumb. If darker than legal tint on the windows put everyone else on the road at a greater level of risk then no cops would have extremely dark tint on the windows of their vehicle. I see that often.
    Moreover, the laws against extremely dark tint were legislated due in part to a concern about ‘officer safety.’

  • t

    Really? See it often do you? I only see it on K-9 vehicles. But like most CBers…you likely live a lifestyle that brings you into more contact with cops than me. And I am one and work with them everyday.

    Keep thinking that you’re thinking

  • Jonny Vegas

    Post one pick of an in use cop car with tinted windows that isn’t an SUV.

  • Jonny Vegas

    The guy talking in the second half of the video is an ignorant person. Our police are like the ones in Nazi Germany? Give me a break, that guy probably hasn’t been out of the country because he would know actual oppression and not just perceived oppression that seems to be rampant on this site. Just another criminal harassing hard working Americans.

  • bobby

    I think he was just hoping to find drugs because he had dreads. Why pass the car three times with the dog if you don’t EXPECT to find drugs. Most likely a case of profiling.
