In a demonstration of brute police state force that would make Hitler proud, the Gwinnett County Police Department (GCPD) in Georgia has adopted a new policy of forcibly drawing blood from suspected drunk drivers that refuse breathalyzer tests. According to FOX 5 News in Atlanta, GCPD officers have already begun aggressively hauling suspected drunk drivers down to the local police station to strap them down like wild animals, against their will, and conduct forced blood draws.
Following the lead of nearby Douglas County, which was the first in the Peach State to adopt the Fourth Amendment-trashing policy, Gwinnett County apparently sees nothing wrong with giving cops the freedom to physically assault and medically inject members of the driving public that they accuse, perhaps falsely, of drinking too much alcohol. No longer are suspects given the option to forego the breathalyzer in exchange for losing their license for a year — if you refuse a breathalyzer, you will get put in a headlock and have a needle injected in your arm.
