Police State Madness: Cops In DUI Vans Drawing Motorists’ Blood

Halloween is less than six months away but that has not stopped law enforcement from taking people’s blood. In fact, police officers want our blood so bad that they are purchasing blood draw vans, sorry I meant DUI vans like the one pictured above.

Last year, I wrote an article about police officers forcing hospitals to draw a drunk or drugged suspect’s blood. But what I could never have imagined is that within a year, police officers would be physically drawing motorists’ blood.

A recent article in Pew Charitable Trusts revealed that police DUI vans in Arizona and California are drawing people’s blood.

“A DUI police van equipped with a special chair and table for blood testing pulled up. The man refused to submit to a blood draw. So Phoenix Police Det. Kemp Layden grabbed his laptop and filled out an electronic warrant, or e-warrant, which was transmitted directly to a judge.”

What makes this story so disturbing is that typically a person must be a certified phlebotomist or healthcare professional who is trained to draw blood from a patient in a safe and sanitary manner. But as you can imagine that is not what is happening.

“Within 10 minutes, Layden had a search warrant. Another officer drew the man’s blood. A lab report later confirmed he had active THC and a sedative in his blood.”

I will eat my hat, if law enforcement claims their vans and police departments are sanitary. Alleging that police officers should be treated like healthcare professionals and be allowed to physically draw blood from a person is obscene.

As the article reveals, the real reason why police officers want our blood is to “save money because they don’t need to pay phlebotomists and hospitals for blood draws.”

I cannot possibly discuss all the different things that could go wrong with police officers drawing blood, so I will only focus on two.

When a police officer calls a DUI blood van to forcibly draw a person’s blood based on a hunch that they might be on drugs or drunk, we no longer have a Bill of Rights to protect us.

As attorney John Whitehead said, forced blood draws make a mockery of the Fourth Amendment. The act of merely driving on state owned roads should not mean that we give up our rights.
