It was a DUI check point and for drivers license, so whats up with the vehicle violations? They must have needed some other justifaction for this waste of time and money!!! Oh sir your tail light is out let me write you up for that. Why is it illegal for me to have a tail light out or to have the light that is above my license plate out? It only serves as a reason for the popo to pull you over and really harass you and cause you to question what rights or non rights we really have in this country..

First off, driving a motor vehicle on a public road has NEVER been a right. It's always been a privilege. Once you apply for that privilege, you're obliged to obey all the laws that pertain to that privilege. And one of them is that if you're operating a motor vehicle on a public street you must pull over and stop if you are directed to by a law enforcement officer. At that time if he notices a vehicle equipment violation he is expected to take proper measures, which may consist of a warning or citation or in some circumstances towing of the vehicle. Given your more than obvious attitude I would not be surprised that the decision of the officer might be to cite rather than give a warning. Wouldn't surprise me at all.

Only one arrest. Considering dozens are caught in Pomona, Ontario, etc... looks like Chino Hills overall is a stand out IE city.

7 cities in the West End were doing this... what were results of all. Curious to see how the numbers stack up given multiple cities were doing this at the same time.

The math in a bad economy, all the deputies are paid over time, each deputy making a minimun of $500.00 for the day. one arrest?

The county doesn't have to pay the deputies a dime. It's not financed out of the departments budget. The budget for checkpoints always comes from federal grants. It's offered to the departments on a "use it or lose it" basis. So if they don't take the free money it just goes to some other agency elsewhere. It's already allocated by federal grant, so even if it isn't used it doesn't go back to the people anyway. Same thing when you hear about checkpoints in Pomona, Rialto, San Bernardino or any other city. The cities and counties aren't paying for it.

Then stop whining. The money will be spent whether it's spent on law enforcement in our communities or whether it's spent on a study to see how seagulls react to nude bathers at Blacks Beach. So better that it gets spent here in our area even if it only catches one violator than for it to be spent somewhere else. It doesn't save a dime for us not to take advantage of it because it will just be spent somewhere else anyway. By going to our sheriffs deputies that money circulates into our local economy rather than be circulated somewhere else in the country. And like you said, these bad economic times, we can use all the extra money injected into our local economy that we can get.

Your Federal tax dollars at work (while we all sit in traffic and rot, along with Gas/Water mains breaking from old age, and so on and so on ...).
Do you have any idea how much money we're talking about here? I do...
