Manassas, VA – This week, the Manassas City Police Department proudly announced on their Facebook page that they would be setting up checkpoints to look for people who are driving with no license, seatbelt or with outdated inspection stickers.

Checkpoints are unconstitutional in a free society yet too many states are in violation. How is this a productive use of a police force? Those are offenses, punishable by fine, not crimes.

Generally, those 3 offenses are often associated with illegal immigrants but if they stopped darker skinned people it would be profiling so maybe this is a cover?

I get around some and one thing I have noticed is there are vary few doughnut shops anymore , with that being said maybe they need something to do .

To serve and protect ya right it looks more like they are terrorizing the citizens .

They want and need revenue. Going after people for petty infractions poses little danger to themselves and nets a wad of cash at the same time. It's easy to stop this kind of thing in small towns if the people get together and say no.
