I saw this video floating around Facebook and quite frankly it outraged me to no end.
I have no issue with the guy recording the checkpoint stop. I do however have an issue with him giving the Border Patrol officer a hard time for doing her job. He should have been thanking her, not making her job more difficult.
Law enforcement has the right to conduct these stops/checkpoints. If you have an issue with them, take them up with your Congressman and the SCOTUS. As long as they are conducted uniformly, without ‘profiling’ or singling one individual out, then they are completely constitutional. The SCOTUS ruled long ago that an individual is obligated to identify themselves to a law enforcement officer. A roadway is public property and operating a vehicle on them is a privilege (not a right) subject to public laws and regulations. Law enforcement is charged with enforcing those laws and regulations in a uniform manner and a person’s ability to use those roads is conditional.
We give the Border Patrol guys a hard time for people crossing the border illegally and not doing their jobs. Then when they are doing their jobs, idiots like this give them a hard time. So the next time you have an issue with a law enforcement officer doing their job, take the time to thank them for doing it. Then contact your local elected officials and give them a hard time about it.
Law enforcement simply enforces the laws created by our elected officials and courts. They cannot change the laws and/or enforcement policies. As long as they are professional and apply the law uniformly, we can ask no more of them.
Times are tough all over …
Just weeks before forces are hit by expected £2.4bn budget cuts, some have taken to punting various items – including underwear – on an auction website specially tailored for cops to sell off lost or stolen property. – UK Telegraph
So if you are needing some ‘new’ underwear and don’t mind that they are slightly used, here is a deal for you. But then again, it does beg the question why the British cops have such things in the first place?
Today is my day ….
The International Day of Older Persons is being observed all across the world today. The Day is observed on October 1 each year – Pakistan News
It was nice of the UN to set aside a day for us older folks.
Pirates on the border …
ZAPATA, Texas — An American tourist was shot in the back of the head in Mexican waters on Thursday after being ambushed by armed boaters, a Texas sheriff said. It happened on a lake where run-ins with pirates had already put fishermen and Texas officials on alert.
Laredo, TX has become a war zone yet the Obama administration seems more interested in protecting illegal aliens than Americans.
