30JUN2014: Oregon police plan ‘no refusal’ blood-draws for drivers Celebrate Independence Day with forcible DNA collection by police


(Police State USA) –

Field sobriety test

OREGON — Police are announcing a blitz of forced ‘no-refusal’ blood-draw warrants for drivers this holiday weekend.

In Oregon, and many other states, drivers that are suspected by police of driving under the influence are presented with a choice: submit to a Breathalyzer search or lose your driver’s license for a year.

From a driver’s perspective, however, submitting to a Breathalyzer presents some problems. One is that the machines inherently present the possibility of error, and could provide an incorrect measurement incriminate an innocent person. There is the argument that people should not be forced to prove their innocence or provide police with self-incriminating evidence.

The policy of revoking licenses is not without faults, but for the most part it balances the forces calling for safe roads and protects people’s individual rights.

However, in Oregon, that’s not good enough. Judges are teaming up with police to sign warrants on-demand for the forcible confiscation of blood. The intention is to collect the evidence necessary to lock people in prison.

In some cases, this involves hustling a suspect back to the police station, strapping them to a table, putting them in a headlock, and penetrating them with a needle, despite their protests.

It does not paint a pretty picture for innocent people who philosophically choose to stand their ground and refuse to submit to police searches.

31DEC2013: St.Louis becomes tyrannical DUI Blood Test “No Refusal Zone” New Years Eve


(thegatewaypundit) – In September 2008 top Democratic prosecutors in St. Louis announced that they would threaten and prosecute critics of Barack Obama.


St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce and St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch threatened to bring libel charges against those who spoke out falsely against Barack Obama. The Obama goon squads were formed.

Now this…
City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce is establishing a DUI “no refusal zone” inside the city limits of St. Louis. Starting today, drivers may face a blood test without consent if they are suspected of driving under the influence.
FOX 2 News reported:

If an officer suspects you are driving in St. Louis City under the influence of alcohol, you can refuse a breath test. But, you might face a blood test whether you consent or not.

City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Police Chief Sam Dotson and Fire Chief Dennis Jenkerson planned a press conference Monday afternoon to announce a “No Refusal Zone” across St. Louis.
This issue has already been through the U.S. Supreme Court.

Missouri law says you can refuse to give a breath test, if police pull you over and suspect that you are driving drunk. But, the law does not protect you from certain consequences. Neither does a recent ruling by the nation’s highest court.

In Cape Girardeau County, an officer arrested Tyler McNeely in October 2010 for suspicion of DUI. McNeely refused to take a breath test. An officer took McNeely to the hospital and had his blood drawn, without a warrant.

Eight of the nine Supreme Court justices said that action violated the suspect’s fourth amendment protection from unnecessary search and seizure. Justice Sonya Sotomayor stated that police must first seek a search warrant for that blood. It looks like city officials plan to do that, each and every time a suspect refuses a breath test.

20NOV2013: Texans pulled over randomly, told to turn over blood, saliva samples


Editorial Comment – BY GOVERNMENT CONTRACTORS & PEOPLE DRESSED UP IN COSTUMES?  – OMG GET A BACKBONE…

(RT) – Dozens of Texas drivers have been stopped at a police road block, where they were then directed into a parking lot and forced into surrendering blood, saliva and breath samples in a study that has upset civil liberties advocates.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration admitted it was attempting to conduct a government study meant to determine the number of drunk or drug-impaired drivers on the road at any given time.

It just doesn’t seem right that you can be forced off the road when you’re not doing anything wrong,” Kim Cope, who said she was forced to the side of the road while making her way to lunch, told NBCDFW.com. “I gestured to the guy in front that I just wanted to go straight, but he wouldn’t let me and forced me into the parking spot.”

The tests were made even more mysterious when reporters, alerted to the situation by concerned drivers, were unable to find any officers in the Fort Worth Police Department who had been involved. The NHTSA only admitted its involvement after local media sought answers.

The department, which says its mission is to “save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce vehicle-related crashes,” maintains that participation in the research was completely voluntary. But Ms. Cope said she felt trapped during what seemed to be an investigation.

“I finally did the breathalyzer test just because I thought it would be the easiest way to leave,” she said. “It just doesn’t seem right that they should be able to do any of it. If it’s voluntary, it’s voluntary, and none of it felt voluntary.”

When pressed, the FWPD said it was “reviewing the actions of all police personnel involved to ensure that FWPD policies and procedures were followed.” The NBC affiliate was able to determine that the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, a government contractor, was hired to conduct the check.

An NHTSA spokesperson admitted similar programs were being conducted in 30 other cities throughout the US.
But civil liberties attorney Frank Colosi does not accept the rationale.

You can’t just be pulled over randomly or for no reason,” he said. “They’re essentially lying to you when they say it’s completely voluntary, because they’re testing you at that moment.”

He added that drivers who refused may have been targeted by police for inadvertently giving the impression they were operating a vehicle under the influence. He also told NBC that fine print on the form told drivers their breath was being tested by “passive alcohol sensor readings before the consent process has been completed.”

This oddity comes just months after Texas state troopers were caught on video conducting vaginal and cavity searches on female drivers at the side of the road. The videos quickly went viral, and attorneys for the women filed federal lawsuits against the troopers.

It’s ridiculous,” Peter Schulte, a former Texas police officer and prosecutor, told the New York Daily News earlier this year. “I was a law enforcement officer for 16 years and I never saw anything like it.
