A member of the Charlotte city council wants to END drunk driving checkpoints.
BECAUSE THEY MAKE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS NERVOUS.
Getting busted for drunk driving or being here illegally is just too darned stressful, y’all!
“Democrats On City Council Want CMPD To Back Off In Immigrant Neighborhoods”
People are understandably incredulous:
Well, but… it’s FINE if CITIZENS are nervous. Just not illegal immigrants.
We’re trying to protect the ILLEGAL immigrants here. Duh.
DUHHH. Illegal immigrant-heavy communities are now drive-drunk-free zones!
We’ve gone off the deep end.
I have certain thoughts on drunk driving checkpoints anyway. The general legal argument is that the benefits to public safety outweigh the inconvenience of the stop. Nevertheless, the constitutionality of the whole thing is …hazy. But purposely stopping them in one neighborhood to spare the feelings of illegal immigrants, while continuing them in OTHER neighborhoods?
Yeah. That’s DISCRIMINATION against CITIZENS… and that’s not going to fly in my book.
