Nice to see that he set the whole thing up so that he could get youtube famous! and it seem to have worked.

It is pretty simple, I`m not a cop but if you act suspicious around me I`m going to treat you with suspicion. I stopped coming to this site because most of the commenters are just plain retarded, your the same bunch of dippoos who are screaming for more gun control, but i shouldn`t have to roll my window down at a sobriety check point.

I seem to remember way back when I was first getting me license, one of the first things I was told is that driving on publicly maintained roads was a privilege not right, and because there so many asshats out there who can`t fallow a few simple rules like.

1) Have a valid license.
2) Have valid registration and insurance.
3) Don`t drive impaired.
we have to have check points in the hopes that we can get a few of them off of the road. There is a time and a place to fight "the man" i don`t believe t

I`m a little curious about some of you folks reactions to this.

It it not wrong to know your rights, and exercise your rights. In fact it is your duty as a citizen to uphold your rights. If the constitution says you cannot be subject to unreasonable search and seizure then you cannot be subjected to it, plain and simple.

I cannot see why the driver is being vilified for insisting that the police adhere to his rights. Why would you give them up? Men and women have fought and died to insure that you are protected from abuse of authority.

The officer could have done his job properly speaking through opening in the window. Can anyone honestly say they believe that the situation would have transpired in exactly the same way if he had given up his rights and complied with the officer`s demands? The actions of the police were punitive and an abuse of power.

I`m appalled at the ignorant comments here on IAB. Most people don`t know their rights and/or give them away so freely. If I`m ever stopped at a checkpoint, I`ll do the same as this guy. It`s my duty to uphold my rights. If everyone did, we wouldn`t have these problems.
You are not required (without suspicion of a crime/violation) to:
-roll down your window all the way
-pull over
-get out
-give your age
-give your license
-consent to search

They wouldn`t even answer his question if he was being detained or not. That`s bullpoo.
Also, the root of the problem is this failed drug war. It should be stopped.

Who was being the biggest butthole? The officer of course. The driver did nothing wrong. I hope they are all fired and he wins a big lawsuit.

Most likely the whole thing could have ended if the non-nice individual had just rolled down his window. Cops are dicks -- not just these, but all cops after a few years on the job. But he aggravated a guy who was probably on some kind of punishment duty.

Doesn`t matter MCthslpnts. Where do people draw the line? Listen I`m all for stopping drunk drivers but when they purposely abuse their positions, for instance the dog giving a false positive on the Drug. The officer definitely "led" the dog on. That`s some petty bs. Just look at my posts I`m pretty left leading on most things and even I find this troubling. First off it gives the right wing nuts ammo to spout out about big brother. This type of poo shouldn`t happen. Regardless if they don`t catch a drunk driver every now and then.

These videos of Americans fighting cops about their constitutional rights (whether in cars or in their homes) always makes me wonder: have all of them forgotten about the Patriot Act? It makes me sad that Canada has instituted our version of the same document, too. The cops don`t need warrants any more, they need no reason for anything they do now, they can do whatever the f*ck they want to whomever the f*ck they want... the Patriot Act (and our Canadian version too) has pissed on our so-called rights and thrown them right out the window.
Now we get to have fun dealing with the repercussions that thankfully these people are nice enough to videotape and post for us. (end of rant)...
the driver DID seem like a dick and SEEMED to be asking for trouble for no good reason. Maybe the cop shouldn`t have lost his cool but I bet it wasn`t easy to not freak out at the kid.

randy. As you can clearly see. The officer is using the fact that he is an officer to not only ignore a lawful question, but also to intimidate a driver to get out of his car, without cause, without consent, without warrant. You make me sick. supposed "DUI" checkpoints constitute a violation of Unreasonable Searches and Seizure. You can`t simply PULL EVERYONE OVER that`s going down a particular street. Furthermore, It`s obviously not a dui checkpoint because they have drug sniffing dogs doing open air searches. Dogs cannot and will never be able to determine whether or not a person is under the influence. Police are sworn to protect and to server, Not to look around and act on hunches. You make me sick.

Poke the bear, see what happens. We have our freedoms in this country because they were earned. Little punks like this that want to challenge authority at every turn are not the ones that earned us these freedoms. They are the ones we need to protect...from themselves.
This is not a `roadblock` this is a road side safety checkpoint. The purpose is to deter and eliminate drunk drivers. Police officers do not need this type of attitude and harassment, that`s what makes some cops become jaded and abuse their post.

that kid did a great editing job. I`m amazed at how many people actually believed the cop admitted the kid was innocent. But I guess people will believe anything.

It doesn`t matter if the driver was a jerk, he was within his rights. You Americans can`t even follow your own laws.

@antagonizer,
Wow. That escalated quickly!
I see your point and I`m not entirely opposed to it but I think it`s more like, "I`d rather see an innocent man questioned than have a murderer out on the street."

Even while evidence against the cop piles on, he`ll never need to answer for his actions.

The cop even said "The kids knows his constitutional rights" So he violated them knowingly and willingly. The cop should be fired for that fact alone. Why are people so willing to give away their rights? Once they are gone, you will not get them back...think about your kids!! Do you want them living in that world?

@patchouly "I`d rather have a guy unnecessarily searched then have a drunk driving around on the road."

And where does that end? With "I`d rather have an innocent man go to jail for life than have murderer out on the street..." Slippery slope.

He acted suspicious, right from the beginning. Not rolling down his window? Why? It`s either a way to provoke the cops or he`s hiding something. We know which it was, but the cops don`t.

I`d rather have a guy unnecessarily searched then have a drunk driving around on the road. If something in the situation doesn`t seem right, you check it out. I`ve been though check points many times. They ask how I`m doing. They ask if I`ve been drinking and then they send me on my way. Only takes a few seconds. This guys mistake was being an idiot and not rolling the window down which sent all sorts of red flags to the cops. Make no mistake, he did this on purpose so he could film it.

The police officer hit the nail on the head when he said the kid was completely innocent and knew his rights. He had no reason to blow his lid except to be a total douchebag on a powertrip.
The kid wasn`t rude, his tone was neutral and he was calm. The first thing the officer should have done was tell him the reason for stopping the car.

Cops: Wrong. Kid: Technically correct. That and a dollar will get you a wedding ring when your punk azz goes to jail and Bubba thinks you`re cute. There is a time to be right and a time to STFU. This kid eventually will come up against Office Clyde and he will go to jail, he will be butt raped, and he will win a lawsuit. Is you anal virginity worth being right ALL the time.

Hate this. Driver is a complete jerk. @Runemang is totally correct. He knew the cops were checking for DIU, so why act like you`re hiding something? They`re bound to think you`re drunk. Idiot. Stop wasting time by being a smartass little kid and help them do their job.

"Also, yes, you ARE required to provide ID when asked. You are required to carry and to present ID at all times, even if you`re not driving."

In his state? In mine you aren`t. Unless you`ve been suspected of a crime with reasonable suspicion and are being detained, you are not required to present ID. Unless driving. Even then, a traffic stop requires reasonable suspicion of a crime.

No.

Driving, yes it requires a license. But walking down the street? This isn`t Nazi Germany. I don`t have to "show my papers".

I saw this the other day. It should have gone:
"Could you roll down your window, please?"
"Sure."
"Have you been drinking tonight?"
"No sir."
" *sniff* ... okay, have a good night, sir."
The end.

He just wanted to start poo. Also, yes, you ARE required to provide ID when asked. You are required to carry and to present ID at all times, even if you`re not driving.

The kid was polite and respectful the whole time. Being polite and respectful should NOT necessarily have to include blindly following illegal or unwarranted orders.

Driver did nothing wrong.

The officer needs more training.

It is my belief that any "checkpoints" are unconstitutional.

Last time I went through a DUI checkpoint was New Years Eve 2011. We were going to my girlfriends parents house & stopped to pick her sister up from work at 9pm on the way there. Had to wait 5 or 10 mins then the cop came to window and asked if I`d been drinking. I smiled and said, "Nope, not yet, and this is cutting into my drinking time so I hope it doesn`t take too long!" My girlfriend gave me the evil eye and hit me on the shoulder for being a smarta$$ and to our surprise the cop just laughed and said, "Ok, sorry buddy, you guys have a good night and be safe. I don`t want to see you out here later after you start drinking." That was actually the only pleasant interaction I`ve ever had with a cop.

To clarify, I didn`t mean what they did to the kid. I was talking about the checkpoints. I don`t know that they`re actually effective, but I believe that THEY believe they are helping us.

The kid was not being an ahole. The cop searching his car said it himself "he`s perfectly innocent and knows his rights". The point is the cop is acting on hunches and manufacturing his own reasonable suspicion, precisely what he`s supposed to NOT do. If the kid stepped out of his rights at any point, which many otherwise innocent people do, the cops and law would have been all over it. This turd cop needs to watch more videos.

broisfam - I am very polite to police when I deal with them. I don`t have time to get into a pissing match with a cop over his authority and my rights.

I don`t think these cops are trying to "keep us safe" when they do crap like this. They take it personal when their authority is questioned. We should have unlimited rights to question authority, that is what will keep us free.

turdburglar,
You`re right. They`re doing a job our money pays for and you shouldn`t have to be polite to anyone. BUT, there`s nothing wrong with being polite to everyone either, especially to those who are out there trying to do a job that helps to keep us safe. I have no problem with what that kid decided to do. Clearly, it was intentional, considering he had video aimed and running, but that`s his right to. Me? I`ve offered to get the cops working outside in the winter some coffee - they`ve always said, "no, thank you." I`m sure they`re not allowed to accept it, but they certainly appeared to appreciate the offer and I would have been happy to bring it for them.

The police are on the clock. OUR money. The people they stop are on their own free time. I shouldn`t HAVE to be polite and nice to an officer with the fear they will "teach me a lesson". The cops are on duty, if they don`t like my attitude they need to suck it up. It`s their job.
Nothing makes a cop angrier than knowing and using your rights.

I think the driver was out looking for trouble. Cops on DUI duty have to stand out in all weather, over holidays, and in danger of being hit by drunk drivers. What the screaming hell is the problem with NOT giving them a hard time for protecting you from hammered idiots racing toward you in the wrong lane? I greet roadblock officers in a friendly manner, tell them how much, if any, alcohol I had that day, and say thanks for the job they`re doing - because I know they get SFA in the way of appreciation.
I don`t give a good god-damn WHAT they did to this whiner and his car.

[email protected] the cops and their dui check points. They didn`t even ask him if he had been drinking.

"considering how many cars he has to go through it is understandable."
He doesn`t have to go thru anyone`s car unless they appear impaired. The only reason they went thru this kids car was to teach him a lesson. The lesson is that cops will push the boundary of their authority, and we had better not use our rights, or they will punish us.

1) The kid was in the right.

2) That didn`t stop the cops from f***ing him over.

3) That`s all.

You are at a freaking DUI checkpoint. They are randomly looking for people driving under the influence. You know that you are pulling up to a DUI checkpoint so why would you be an A**hole and give the cops a reason to return the favor.

I have a feeling that he felt like he had the time to f*ck with them. I also think he might want to show this to a lawyer and consider legal action, at least for the purpose of having the cops made aware of just what rights the stopped drivers have. Was notable that the searching cop commented that he was innocent and knew his rights.

Ugh how embarrassing...my state has made it on IAB. Honestly, I think the guy in the car was deliberately being a pain. Just roll down your damn window. Why make a big deal about it?

Granted, the cop did get pissed a little too easily. But considering how many cars he has to go through it is understandable.
