On August 23, 2014 my friend and I went through a checkpoint in Napa, California. They have these checkpoints listed as DUI / Driver license checkpoints, which, as Copblockers, we all know is not legal. We went through it and proceeded to inform the officers that we do not have to present any form of ID.
It was amazing how uninformed these officers were when it came to this issue. A highway patrol officer even had the audacity to say he could pretty much make us do whatever he wanted with or without reasonable suspicion.
It is sad that those who are paid to uphold the law do not know the law. There were many other problems with this checkpoint but I feel this video speaks for itself.
Get informed and hold police accountable. Contrary to popular belief, and the belief of the officer in this video, they can’t do whatever they want.
