DHS checkpoint refusals

Papers, please

Does my heart good to see people do this:

The guy at the end is kind of pathetic, though.

    I love the look on the supervisor’s face when he realizes he it is checkmate.

    I love the pushy mexican asshole towards the beginning. The phrase that finally got through to him was “I don’t wish to be questioned without a lawyer present.” And suddenly he was like “oh crap, I remember this one.”

    If everybody would do this this BS would stop

  3. Patrick H Says:

    Our society and its laws are predicated on the idea that most people will comply. Once people stop complying, and start causing a ruckus, this will stop.

    Great vid.

  5. Joat Says:

    I liked the guy at the end asking the border agent if he is a citizen.

  6. Hartley Says:

    Funny – I’ve been through a bunch of these and they have NEVER asked me if I was a citizen. They say something like “How are you?” and when I say “fine” in english, it’s “have a nice day..” Must be I don’t look even remotely hispanic which, if you think about it, SHOULD piss you off.

  7. NJDave Says:

    Thanks for posting, this actually made me laugh out loud!

  8. milquetoast Says:

    @3:44 “Where’s the border at?”

    DHS guy points down the road and says they are 30 miles away from the border. Close enough, eh?

    For the government the choice is probably pretty easy : Patrolling the actual border would be difficult and away from an air conditioned office with a box of donuts so why not inconvenience everyone else so the government guys won’t be inconvenienced.

    Technically, everyone is near the border – it is just a matter how relativity near they are. How far will they push it? 100 miles, 200 miles, 500 miles? Will the coasts be considered borders?

  9. Corey Says:

    My personal favourite was the repeated “Am I being detained?”.

    Like others have said above, if everyone responded in this fashion, the nonsense would stop.

  10. Weer'd Beard Says:

    The guy at the end asking the border agent for ID and where he’d been today got me laughing.

    I think the agent got the joke too. Too bad it cut so early.

    Great video.

  11. Bryan S. Says:

    How many of these stops go through because the person is afraid or the “yes you are being detained” line is understood and they dont assert their rights?

  12. wizardpc Says:

    Man, my blood pressure is about 180/140 right now.

    I do have a question, though, since I’m not in that area of the country:

    How many times a week are people like this pepper-sprayed and “extracted” from the vehicle?

  13. wastme Says:

    It started with the DUI checkpoints and now this. People think its ok to stop thousands of cars fishing for someone who will blow over the magic number, doesn’t matter if they are actually impaired or not. Now DHS is fishing too. I don’t know for what because if they wanted to keep illegals out you would think they would secure the border.

  14. wizardpc Says:

    They “fixed” the DUI checkpoint issue with implied consent laws. My guess is we’ve got a little less than two years before we get implied consent laws for this, too.

  15. Rob Crawford Says:

    “DHS guy points down the road and says they are 30 miles away from the border. Close enough, eh?”

    That places the entire city of Detroit under the authority of the DHS. I say we let them have it. Could they make it any worse?

  16. nk Says:

    You guys do know that while these conversations were going on the automated cameras were running the license plate, right? And that the computer brought up the registered owner’s information, complete with address and driver’s license photo?

  17. Reno Sepulveda Says:

    Obama certainly has fundamentally changed America. He has turned a huge segment of the populace that was once enthusiastically pro Law Enforcement into… well I don’t know what yet. #TheTimesTheyAreAChangin

  18. Boyd Says:

    It’s refreshing to see resistance. On the other hand, because we do still have a vote and we continue to elect (or by inaction allow to be elected) Statists we are to some degree resisting ourselves.

    Putting your finger in their eye is fun. I would prefer getting their eye out of the way. We need to stop re electing (or through inaction allowing to be re elected) Statists who for any given question think that government is the answer. Legislators and Governors enact agriculture stops and provide ongoing funding for their continuance. We are responsible for handing power to those legislators. http://www.nraila.org/get-involved-locally.aspx

    When I first saw this a couple of days ago, I thought the local citizens should convoy up their cars and make these officers apparatchiks lives “interesting” for a while. Either that, or set up cameras on tripods all around their perimeter. Just a little monkey business.

  20. wizardpc Says:

    firecapt:

    I’d fly in for that.

  21. Hank Says:

    wizardpc: I’d fly in for that.

    I’d maybe drive over. Thanks to these very same asshats, I don’t fly unless I absolutely have to in order to remain employed.

    Patrick H: Our society and its laws are predicated on the idea that most people will comply. Once people stop complying, and start causing a ruckus, this will stop.

    Or the law will be changed. They are ignoring so much of the constitution now, what’s a little more?

  22. TigerStripe Says:

    Those stopping points aren’t new. They’ve been there for at least fifteen years.

  23. wastme Says:

    I’m unaware of any implied consent laws for a DUI checkpoint in Colorado. As far as I know it is legal to flip u turn to avoid the checkpoint. Of course if you did that you will more than likely have company even though you didn’t technically break the law.

  24. TS Says:

    Unfortunately, several of them let it slip and inadvertently answered the question by saying something along the lines of, “I know my rights as an American”.

    Officer: “thank you for answering my question, off you go.”

    (damit)

  25. Mike Says:

    Yeah, yeah: it’s all fun-n-games until somebody gets tasered, slammed onto the pavement, bitten by a K-9, and beaten to a bloody pulp.

    I seem to recall the case of a pastor that went through just such a — er — muscular encounter with a group of heroic law enforcement officers.

    Ah, yes, here it is:

    Do what you gotta do, but don’t expect YOUR case to go as well as those portrayed in the video.

  26. Lyle Says:

    I like ‘em all. God bless ‘em. That’s what you call courage right there, and if we had more of that courage in this country, we wouldn’t be in this mess right now.

  27. Phil Says:

    Actually, the last guy had it right. He realized to his satisfaction the dude was a US citizen without contraband and released him without needing to get in a dick measuring contest.

  28. Ron W Says:

    Like the “war on drugs”, the “war on terror” and DUI checkpoints, these immigration checkpoints (while our border is allowed to be invaded) is a psy ops pretext to condition Americans to accept the police-state.

  29. Leatherwing Says:

    Mike, the video of the Arizona pastor you linked to, he is the first person on the video that Uncle posted. He’s had several encounters with them.

  30. snoopycomputer Says:

    Someone tell these guys we want to see a video of them answering, “Yes, I am an American Citizen” in spanish.

  31. Rivrdog Says:

    @snoopycompter: “Herr truppen, ischt bin ein Amerikaner, jawohl” or, “Bien certes, je suis nee Americain, et vous?”

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
