This is an outrage! He was ethnically profiled and pulled over for D-W-I, Driving While Italian! We will march thru the streets of New Lenox and shut this town down!(Unless, of course you are willing to make a generous donation to my foundation and pay my expenses.)

It's not profiling, it's being monitored for making a mistake in your past and they can do it if they want. I got a DUI 7 years ago and I am randomly pulled over and subjected to a breathalyzer at least 6 times a year since than. The cops do it because I have a record and a second offense is a felony charge, which is good for them. I have not had a sip of alcohol since my arrest 7 years ago so they will never catch me, but all they have to do is run your plates, and if you have a past you are subject to investigation if they so choose. I know it would be more satisfying to refuse the test and claim harassment, however that refusal would mean 3 years of a suspended license automatically.
It's not one cop either. Off the top of my head it's been New Lenox, Frankfort, Mokena, Joliet, Oak Forest, Tinley Park, Orland Park, Illinois State, Indiana State, Monee, Manhattan, Chicago Ridge, Bridgeview, Bradley, Kankakee, Aurora, Lisle, Homewood, Park Forest, Plainfield, and a few others I cannot remember.
It's just a friendly warning, if you think about doing something stupid, don't. It can haunt you for the rest of your life. As I said, I have not had a drink or a ticket since my arrest, but that does not stop them from checking, with good reason too. An incredible amount of DUI's come from repeat offenders.

Wow....I never thought about the long lasting repercussions even after someone had learned the lesson. I'll bet you have done some good by sharing your story. Congrats on your lesson learned and the attitude you have chosen.

If someone was pulled over just because of his past and found to be drunk would the arrest stand up in court? I don't think so. The police need probable cause to pull you over. Of course, the cop will just say you were weaving and that was the reason for the stop.

Yea, you're right. Cops can never find "probable cause" to pull you over once they run your plates. That doesn't happen ever.

Just be careful and do not drink and drive, please!

Having a past. Actually, you have nailed the heart of the matter. However, your profiler may also have a past, but because of his uniform and his cronies, he gets a pass from his past. When laws are implimented over existing laws and layers and layers of laws build up; but no law is ever removed for being outdated or unnecessary, then the weight of it all, combined with the abuse of power by the profilers and you have a net result of a quagmire of injustice. So was it justice that a car was pulled over, or was it an injustice that the car was pulled over. A proper society can not operate and thrive when the norm is the end is justified by the means. Bush went after Hussein in that manner and now that place is in chaos. Obama wants to pursue the Syrian leader under the same guise. What do you think will happen next? And the police officer who may, or may not have stretched and overreached with his authority; will he do it again for the glory and recognition? Just so he may falsley rise above his peers. Good and sound judgment by a person is a hard quality to find. In this instance, from the driver, to the officer, to the persons posting here on this site. It is all too easy to call for an eye for an eye form of justice when as an internet spectator bloviating will bring no scorn or punishment for fueling an outcry. Beleive me, you're next if this was an improper traffic stop. Are you ready? And no one wins.

Sounds like blue island bob is the cop. He probably wants people to drive drunk for his own ticket writing glory.

The more I thought about this, the more I think you are making this up. I know someone who had a dui (brother-in-law) back in 2005 and he is not constantly being pulled over.
