Another FXU DWI Lottery!!!!!!
Posted by: Radiophile ()
Date: June 21, 2009 10:05AM

Since June 20th last night there was a DWI checkpoint in the Sully district, I figured time for another DWI checkpoint lottery. Here are the rules. Please predict

Number of people stopped
Number of DWI/DUI
Number of other MISC charges - everything from seat belt violations to outstanding warrants

Whoever is closest to the actual results without going over on any one of the three categories wins.

In case of no one winning, we will add the total number of all three categories and whoever is closest without going over, wins!

Winner will be announced after the FCPD press release which should come out by Monday afternoon.

Responses edited within one hour of the press release will be voided.

Did you ever think that the tiny number of arrests might mnean these fucking things WORK?

As big a deal as you assholes make about sobriety checkpoints is another indicator...that maybe they are a deterrent.

Anyway, get over it...the Supreme Court has ruled they are legal. Call a cab.

But y'all are right...we lost a lot of our rights during the reign of the chimp and I fear they're gone forever. The tur'ists won. Murca lost.

You should win a free pass through a checkpoint.

See the majority opinion of Justice Antonin Scalia in Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts. The print editon of The Washington Post had the details yesterday.

Basically, an analyst must show to testify or the case can be tossed.
