Both are routes to east Valinda but everyone knows it,what a failure they may get a few dummies but the real targets (thugs)just go around.

What a waste of scarce resources: communist-style checkpoints! Whatever happened to the concept of "probable cause"? Whatever happened to that thing called the Fourth Amendment? Whatever happened to our so-called "Land of the Free"?

All those police units would be better used by patrolling local businesses that seem to be getting robbed on a daily basis.

The biggest gang around is your local law enforcement agency.

Sobriety check in La Puente? I how they have extra cops on hand to bust all the Budweiser drinkers!

Here's an idea: How about have ICE on location too?

Where is the usual "why do they announce these checkpoints? Any potential drunk driver will now know and just take another route" post?

How about a railroad crossing checkpoint?

There are usually 4 locations in La Puente where these check points occur.
1. Hacienda and Temple.
2. Amar between Unruh and Hacienda.
3. Temple between Del Valle and Valinda.
4. Valley between Stimson and Ferrero.

Don't say you weren't warned!

Yet one more violation of the constitution. When they started this BS years ago, and the courts approved, it was said that they would only be checking for DUI, and it wasn't the slippery slope people feared it would be. Well now look. They don't just check for beer breath. If you have some minor thing wrong, like your registration expired 2 days ago, they get you. No front plate? They get you. Something suspicious looking as they peer across your front seat? They pull you out and check it. No slippery slope my but. These things should be banned.

Let me start off with the good part about checkpoints. The good parts are that they are pulling drunk drivers off the road that will increase the probability of killing another human life. The bad part about this is that some but not all people that get pulled over are illegally here which means that they picked on by the racist cops. Some of these immigrantes are not even looking for trouble, they are good abiding citizens that are hard-working. In short, yes there are alot of checkpoints in LA PUENTE due to its crime history that stems from GOVERNMENT FLAWS so these checkpoints are inevitable.

What they failed to tell the public, is that this checkpoint is going on now, Friday evening 10:00 P.M. at Amar Road and Unruh. So if you just bought a vehicle and the front plate is not on or your back license plate light does not work, I would strongly advise you to park the vehicle, like I just did and wait till the morning.
