In one Georgia county, whether you are guilty of a DUI or not, if you refuse a Breathalyzer Test after being pulled over for suspected DUI, you will be forcibly strapped down, put in a headlock and have blood taken from you. Hard to believe? This video, which is quite shocking, is evidence of a system gone askew.
This is wrong.
I agree - drunk drivers should be jailed. Too many children and adults have been murdered on our streets by people who choose to drive under the influence. Far too many drunk drivers get away with their crime again and again - especially if they have deep cash pockets or a slick attorney who 'knows' the judge.
This goes over the line.
After seeing this video, my thoughts went immediately to the innocent drivers who have been, or will be, wrongly pulled over and put through what appears to be a very unconstitutional and extremely invasive procedure, only to be found innocent after. And what if that innocent person has a medical condition that would cause a physical seizure or trigger post traumatic stress, from being treated so roughly? Going a step farther, as a woman and mother, what about females who will undergo this procedure by male officers. Some male police officers have been known to pull over females on what's called a 'pussy stop' - that's when unscrupulous police officers, to fill their traffic quotas, or just for fun, pull over teenage girls and young women, question and detain them, then let them go. Oh yes, this goes on. Many of us have had it happen one or more times in our lives. Now women can be legally 'manhandled' down onto a padded bed, in a skirt, like the young black woman seen in this video, who is strapped down by FIVE large male police officers, even though she is showing no resistance at all. Not even a sheet over her bare legs? Are you f-cking kidding me?
This needs to be exposed, and this needs to be stopped.No. This needs to be exposed, and this needs to be stopped.
