If this doesn't frighten you, you're an idiot. Off duty cops volunteering for such an endeavor are a waste of oxygen.

Uhm idiots... YOUR DNA IS BETTER IDENTIFICATION THAN A FINGERPRINT!? Wow, so much stupidity in the average human.

Okay, Einstein, explain to us "idiots" how you can take a few hundred DNA samples in a box with no labels or other identifying information and figure out the names of the people they came from.

in the end the data really isn't that reliable. It was stated in someones comment only people that volunteer'd it's completely negating anyone that didn't volunteer. Seems like an odd way to run a study

If I had seen one of these roadblocks, I would have gladly done it.

$60 and no ties to me. Oh hell yeah!

sheeple, here meaning idiots that need to wake the f uck up. People who are not sheeple, here meaning, the people who are concerned for the rights and wellbeing of sheeple. Jeez, all sheeple have to do is a bit of reading/ watching/thinking, and bingo,they are not sheeple anymore!

Carmium,
Of COURSE it was a roadblock! Every lane was slowed while drivers were asked to participate, slowing *all* the traffic, not just those willing to participate. Also, this kind of test can't possibly determine what pecentage of drivers had used drugs or alcohol; it can only tell what percentage of the people willing to be tested had used drugs or alcohol. Assuming that most people who had been using drugs or alcohol would choose not to be tested (a fair assumption, I think) the only information that can be reliably gathered from this testing is what percentage of the drivers was willing to be tested. One more thing - if you're being paid, it isn't volunteering. It wasn't mandatory but it still wasn't volunteering.

I can't think of a single comment to make here that won't outrageously offend somebody so... um, neat post.

Voluntary or not this is absolutely positively UNETHICAL!

I stopped watching after "sheeple" - I don't trust arrogant mean persons in the government who think they're smarter than everyone to give me valid information, and I don't trust arrogant mean persons on the internet who think they're smarter than everyone to give me valid information.

I'll take reptilian overlords over paranoid narcissists any day.

Also, my brother has been through this - They take DNA, Blood, but not your identification. The worst they could do is link it to your license plate, but there are no cameras on the spot and they aren't taking notes.

Apparently the survey went very well, with a high proportion of drivers volunteering. It was not a roadblock, NO DNA was collected, and there weren't even releases to sign in order to preserve anonymity. The suggestion that lab-coated techs should have been out there is insane; people would not stop for anyone dressed like that. You need some indication this wasn't a college prank, for Pete's sake. (All the officers were off-duty volunteers.) The tests were merely to see what percentage of drivers had any alcohol or drugs in their systems, and many were happy to make a quick $60.

I might do it for $60 as long as they didn't ask for any identification to tie the samples to me individually.
