I-80 Nevada Random Drug Searches!

I80RandomCheckpoint 300x200 I 80 Nevada Random Drug Searches!

Nevada Police are setting up checkpoints on I-80 in order to randomly stop and harass out of state drivers.

There are about ten unmarked police cars west of Battle Mountain Nv. on I-80 doing illegal random drug searches. They stop you if you have out of state license plates. Be careful! These thugs are out to get us. This is the second time this month (November 2012) they have done this. I will try and get footage next time they do it and post it up.

What are your thoughts on these kind of stops? Do you feel these types of violations of everyone’s rights are warranted in order to potentially catch a small minority of people that might be breaking a law? Do you even feel drug prohibitions should exist considering the inherent Constitutional/personal liberty issues, abuses of authority, and other unintended negative consequences that accompany them?

Feel free to add your answers and/or any other reactions to the comments.

    So does everyone get pulled over? What do you do?

      I’m actually not sure that there is a lot you can do outside of trying to avoid the area if possible. If you do get stopped, I would suggest filming your encounter so there is a record of what exactly happened.
