    My question is why is Homeland Security involved in the violation of a state law ?

    The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security is taking a new approach to DUI patrols with a "No Refusal" campaign.

    This means that people pulled over who are suspected of driving under the influence must take a blood test if asked to by the officer. Previously, a DUI driver could refuse to submit to the blood test. The "No Refusal" law passed this year changing that law.
    Hmmmm, interesting law. From implied consent to forced compliance. Don't get me wrong. I am against any kind of impaired driving. Its just that laws of this type make me nervous. Someone will always come up with a new novel way to apply them for other purposes.

    Hmm...

    Has anyone seen the 4th amendment laying around ???

    The Tennessee Dept. of Safety and Homeland Security seems to have misplaced it somewhere...

    If seen, please notify the proper elected officials by kicking them out of office this November.

    Thanx.

    The only thing that makes sense to me, is a DNA data base?

    What a novel tool to use solving crimes with DNA evidence left behind and cold case files.

    One way or another, big brother is going to get your biometric information in the future.

    I just saw that in an X-Files re-run the other day. Funny how what seemed so absurd and horrific just a decade ago could be so close to normalcy.

    In Tipton County, traffic fatalities are up and officials hope this new law will bring those numbers back down.
    "Already in Tipton County, we've had 726 crashes and six fatalities and we want to do what we can to prevent this," added Tipton County Sheriff Pancho Chumley.
    I see LEO's/officials quoting numbers all the time....but seldom do they say if those numbers are alcohol related.

    Officials say keeping drivers safe is their top priority
    Wrong answer. Their priority is obey the Constitution. If they see someone weaving or behaving erratically stop them. That is like saying we are going to go into everyone's house to see if it is a meth lab and claiming that their top priority is public safety.

    This ain't all that good an idea me thinks.........

    Thats next. There is vast support for this among folks who think it will only happen to the other guy.

    Big Brother already has my DNA, Panorex, fingerprints, and more than their pound of flesh. I just try to keep my CCW Badge and Tinfoil Hat handy and pray all will be ok.

    I didn't see any mention of DHS. Did I miss something?
