These have gone too far. The Escondido Police usually get one or sometimes even 0 DUI arrests during the checkpoints. Why? Because that is not what these are about. These are about letting everyone know that the government can, and will ruin you if you don't have your "papers" in order. This is the real issue.. Need proof?
If anyone else did what the police and the state are doing if you haven't paid them their extortion money for your papers; extortion of thousands of dollars, theft of property, harassment, kidnapping, fear of imprisonment they would be labeled a terrorist organization (hi NSA you privacy invading losers) and everyone would be angry.
This isn't what happens. Everyone is still delusional, thinking government is god. Allowing theft, kidnapping, extortion and murder, all under the guise of protecting us from those same things. It's no surprise though, after graduating from the "education system" many have this same delusion
