WATCH: How to Go Through a DUI Checkpoint Like a Pro — in Less than 30 Seconds
March 19, 2017
New Haven, CT — DUI checkpoints are an unfortunate reality in the ostensible land of the free. Luckily, there are still people in this country who choose to assert their rights and challenge this tyrannical and constitutional-violating police state racket.
Michael Picard is a champion of freedom and has no fear when it comes to challenging the police state. On numerous occasions, the Free Thought Project has reported on Picard’s endeavors in flexing his liberties. He’s even been picked up by the ACLU after recording police attempting to falsely charge him.
And now, Picard is at it again in his most recent video of rights flexing. This time, he’s driving through a DUI checkpoint he had just protested.
“We were protesting the checkpoint with signs reading, ‘cops ahead.’” Picard told the Free Thought Project of his activism before going through the checkpoint. Then, Picard and his friends had to drive through the checkpoint they’d just been protesting in order to go home.
“We were heading home and had to go through the checkpoint in order to get onto the highway,” Picard explains.
That’s when the video began.
As the car rolls up to the checkpoint, the officer asks for Picard’s license, to which Picard replies, “Why?”
“This is a DUI checkpoint,” the officer replies. Then, something awesome happens.
When the officer sees the camera coupled with the fact that Picard is not immediately curtseying to his command, he realizes that ‘It’s a trap.’ The officer, choosing not to attempt to have to justify the reason for the unconstitutional stop, then lets the car go.
