YouTube user PurpleHat1991 uploaded video of a police DUI checkpoint he went through on July 4, he had this to say:
“The officer orders me to pull over and get out of my car, demands me to give identification (it is only lawful for him to ask), gets the drug sniffing K-9, lies about me having “Illegal Drugs” in the car, searches without consent, and tells me that it is okay to take away Constitutional rights for safety. All while not being detained. All this because my window was not lowered enough to his preference. I broke no laws whatsoever. On a day that we are supposed to be celebrating freedom and liberty. At the end of the encounter, the officer did not want to give me his name when I asked him. After I repeatedly asked him, he finally gave it to me.”
Do you think the driver was being disrespectful of civil authority or simply exercising his 4th Amendment rights?
