I was on my way to a dunkin donuts one day. 4 mile drive on a straight main street.I have watched cops turn on their lights to run through lights and speed down this road. Initially I didn't think anything about it, until a couple minutes later I saw the same unit (the numbers on the car, and the same officer) at the dunkin donuts I was going into. Was he taking a police report, or catching a thief? No. He was standing there with 3 boxes of doughnuts, waiting on the boxes of coffee, flirting with the girl behind the counter
Nice work boys, Nice f***ing work!
Not to mention that their checkpoints are jamming up traffic for the rest of us. Don't you dare let them see you turning around either.

After the cop left I asked what he was doing there, she said he came to get the food and coffee. No tickets, no crime being committed, he was just in a hurry. If you are asking how I identified his unit number and the officer, that's easy. It was daylight and I am observant. I also worked for 3 years at a gas station, before all the pay at the pump stuff started. If I couldn'd give them accurate descriptions of drivers, cars, and plates, the stolen gas came out of my check.
Not everyone is ignorant nor arrogant.
You know I've gone through the same thing you have countless of times. I use to work for a gas station also and I would get whatever was stolen deducted from my check simply because my boss couldn't upgrade her pumps and it was easy to fill up and drive away with it. And even her cameras aren't all that up to par. So I had to make sure that they came up to me and paid in cash first. Problem was they could pay for a specific amount and fill it up with more if they wanted to. I couldn't stop it from inside. And even if I tried it would go over 20 dollars more. I hated it. Nonetheless I'm half and half on this issue. I know some cops are doing their jobs but as you've mentioned there are some who make cops look bad.

Turning around to avoid the roadblock is signaling POPO that you're doing something suspicious,come get me,and they do! Around here at Christmas,New Years Eve,Memorial Day,July 4th,and Labor Day, the newspapers and TV stations give the known locations for late night roadblocks, and people are still stupid enough to drink and drive and not have their registration,or insurance papers. POPO hauls rthem in by the dozens.

Seems you did not learn your lesson if they docked your pay. The weak minded cannot learn and react. If you observe a impaired driver write the DL# and call law enforcement. It's your responsibility.

Take a look at Oklahoma Statute Title 21 O.S. 540(B). Link provided below:

It looks to me like Oklahoma has a statute in place that makes sobriety checkpoints illegal. This statute is similar to a Wyoming statute that outlaws Sobriety Checkpoints in Wyoming.
It is nazi germany all over.

<quoted text>There is no probable cause that can be associated with stopping every vehicle. Probable cause to stop a vehicle is supposed to be based on individualized reasonable suspicion. I think the Oklahoma Legislature passed a law back in 1980 to limit law enforcement to establishing roadblocks only for the reasons stated in this statute. I am sure that law enforcement is aware of this statute and have taken advantage of citizens lack of knowledge about this statute. They have established roadblocks at their leizure even though our state government intented to protect the citizens from roadblocks that are not allowed by this statute.

I believe law enforcement can establish roadblocks for someone eluding the police, an escapee or a known felon. Probable cause has to already be established for the person they are looking for in order for them to establish a roadblock.

Wyoming's statute is very similar to our statute. Below is Wyoming's statute:

7&#8209;17&#8209;102. Authority to establish.
"Peace officers may establish, in their respective or adjacent jurisdictions, temporary roadblocks upon the highways within this state for the purpose of apprehending persons reasonably believed by the officers to be wanted for violation of the laws of this or any other state, or of the United States, and who are using any highway within the state."

Wyoming don't allow roadblocks not based on probable cause. Texas don't allow them either because they don't have a statute in place that defines roadblocks. You can find most of this information on the national highway traffic and safety administration website under saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints.

Educate yourself!! The more knowledge we have as citizens, the less they will be able to infringe on our individual liberties.

Three simple things will gt you through a roadblock quickly, your license,your registration, and your proof of insurance. Why do people have a problem with that? If your license hasn't been revoked,the car is legally registered, and the driver has the STATE MANDATED insurance required by all drivers,no problem. I'm tired of people driving without insurance,having wrecks and expecting the injured party to pay. If you don't have basic insurance,you don't have the privilege to drive on the same streets as those who do! The second part is when the driver rolls down the window to hand the officer the requested paperwork and the clouds of alcohol vapors and MJ smoke come rolling out. THEN THATS PROBABLE CAUSE REMOVE THAT DRIVER FROM THE ROAD!! Whether you like it or not,that's what the law abiding public wants.

Not if the person in front of me doesn't have their license, registration etc. I'm not saying people should be allowed to drive drunk, or high, I just don't think road blocks are an effective way of getting them off the road...

Well in never never land everyone would comply with the laws on the books but I know that "jus ain't gonna happen" but until everyone wises up to that fact,the streets won't be safe for the public. Now look into the real reason people don't like roadblocks, Do you go out every now and then and have a drink at the local watering hole and drive home? Do you have a valid drivers license? Is your driving record so bad from wrecks and tickets that you can't afford insurance? People don't understand that driving is a privilege not a right. That privilege is earned by convincing the state that you know how to operate the vehicle at the time of your test and having a means to financially cover any mistakes you make with insurance. Now,through your lifetime if you abuse that privilege with bad habits and careless driving, the state takes it away and your insurance fades out too. At that point you have lost your privilege and have no right to drive. Could any of the above be the reason you don't like the idea of roadblocks?

Look this isn't even worth my time arguing over. I just said I don't think they work. That's my personal opinion, you don't have to agree with me. I honestly don't even care.

Our insdurance rates are based on habits of the general public so you should be all for any means possible to rid our streets and highways of irresponsible drivers. You or a familly member may be the next victim. Peace!

i agree just like they give drug tests to welfare recipients they should do the same to drivers who have a known record and take away the privilege of driving.

Because there is something called the Constitution. We should not have to submit to illegal search and seizure without a warrant. It is called due process of law. It isn't about whether one is guilty or not. It is a very slippery slope if you allow the government to override your Constitutional rights.

You're so right, few are dumb enough to have to work
at gas stations as you were. It's awful to see penis
envy so blatantly displayed too. Don't stare at the
uniform so intently.

You attempting to confuse working inside a gas station
and hanging around outside to pick up clients.

Having the Men's Room as an office, doesn't make

Businesses are in the business of making money and they couldn't care less about how overweight one is.
