I know it's probably over with now, but I'm sure they'll do it again.
So how does this work?

If they suspect you are under the influence, they're going to give you a blood test right then and there?

I'm mean can a trooper draw blood? They're not doctors. What about HIV being spread around? I don't use needles on myself, I sure ain't going to let some cop stick me with a needle. Sounds like some constitutional rights are being abused. Time to breakout the lawsuits.

I think they should give "Drinking Drivers" a certain time that they can drive home without being harassed. Say you've been drinking and you have to drive home, then between 3 & 4am you can drive home.

If non-drinkers are worried, then stay off the roads between that time and your safe. If a drunk driver wrecks and kills himself that was his choice to drive and most of the hypocrite people in this town would be happier anyways.

What if they run through my house and kill me while I'm sleeping? That happens.

I'd like to get a no refusal law put into effect for our bedroom. I tell her she's just going to feel a little prick but she still says no.

Why dont we just have the law go in front of you and make sure the roads are clear???? You cant be stupid enuf to honestly think this way.I never understood why they tell everybody on the news where the check point are gonna be,seems counterproductive.

Communists are slowly chipping away at our freedoms every chance they get. The 5th amendment clearly says you can not be forced to incriminate yourself. They already had a law that says if you refused to take a test, then you are guilty by refusal. You get the same punishment as if you pled guilty. So why do we need this law that forces you to give up your blood, thus incriminating yourself against your will if you do not consent? Somewhere down the road I see a civil rights lawyer getting a lot of money out of the state. That means as a taxpayer, it comes out of my pocket.

There has never been a law that made you "guilty by refusal". If you refused to take the test, you could be found guilty of violation of implied consent. This is completely independant of the DUI. Not that I completely support it, but I think that the intent of this law is to balance the "rights" of those drinking and driving versus those motorists who are not under the influence. If you have a Tennessee driver's license, then you have already given consent to submit to tests for impairment while operating a vehicle. The general idea appears to be deterence. I'm not certain how you paying taxes leaves you subject to pay for a civil rights lawyer unless you are directly involved in the case.

There has never been a law that made you "guilty by refusal" How dumb can you be? Obamacare is one such law. Refuse to buy it and see what they will come down on you with.
