Sucks, doesn't it? I know and you know that drunk driving is a BAD THING, especially at the holidays when the amateurs are putting lampshades on their heads. BUT...

I firmly believe that checkpoints are constitutionally wrong, in spirit if not in interpreted Constitutional law.

I also don't like the utter waste of perfectly good, crime-fighting manpower. I would bet the sentiment is the same on their side of the debate. DUI is a crime, certainly, but it is so low on my priority list for the police in modern America as to be indistinguishable from things like 'buying new McGriff the Crime Dog suit.'
