Manassas, VA – This week, the Manassas City Police Department proudly announced on their Facebook page that they would be setting up checkpoints to look for people who are driving with no license, seatbelt or with outdated inspection stickers. This type of checkpoint is a new low in police overreach, and the program seems to have very little public support from the community.

The department posted a photo of a police checkpoint on their Facebook page last night with the following message:

MCPD will be conducting a Traffic Safety Checkpoint in ‪#‎Weems‬ in the area of Liberia Ave & Stonewall Rd from 7pm-11pm this Sat, 11/14. Officers will be inspecting vehicles for compliance with traffic and safety regulations (operator’s licenses, safety inspections, state registrations, child car seats, seat belts, and general traffic enforcement). For helpful information on vehicle inspections, registrations and more, visit http://www.dmv.state.va.us/.

The post quickly generated a large number of comments, and not one of them were in support of the idea.

The very first comment reads: They did this sort of thing in Germany in the late 1930’s…jus checking papers…police are blatantly overstepping their boundaries with these types of checkpoints…remember, no injury, no crime…statutes and ordinances are not laws and require your CONSENT! citizens need to be exercising their rights and not allow this invasion of privacy under the guise of “keeping people safe”
