Does anyone think that this is no coincidence that this is being done while the economic crises is going on? Seems like good cover for them to pass all sorts of laws. And someone made an excellent point above... Most places won't allow this for illegal aliens, why is this OK? Its really starting to get scary out there...

Jesse Jackson ought to be down there playing the race card. Bet it would stop in a heart beat. The ACLU could take it to court but it could take years to resolve and by then the cops will find a different reason to do the checkpoints and it would have to be taken to court once again.. Now if people were to do a protest it could help too. Problem is that most people aren't willing.

I'm on your side amigo but I am curious why do you believe the above statement is correct ? To the best of my understanding, unless the person being stopped is so intimidated he/she spills their guts. Not answering a question is not probable suspicion that a crime has been committed. Has this happened to you ?

oh yeah, its part of a revenue generating scheme.. more of which is included here.

ALBANY - Gov. Paterson yesterday socked New Yorkers with a mind-boggling 137 proposed new and hiked taxes on everything from beer to cab rides to iTunes downloads and movie tickets.

The doomsday, $121.1 billion plan represents the biggest tax hike in state history and slashes services across the board - while still increasing spending by $1.4 billion...

The Draconian plan calls for:

* An "iTunes tax" of 4 percent on videos, music or pictures downloaded from the Internet.

* A 4 percent tax on taxi, limo and bus rides. That means a $10 cab ride would cost 40 cents more.

* A 4 percent entertainment tax on tickets to movies, concerts and sporting events. That would add nearly 50 cents to a $12 movie ticket or $1.80 to the cheapest $44.50 seat at a Knicks game.

* The tax on beer increases 24 cents per gallon, or more than double the current rate, which means about 30 cents a case.

* An 18 percent tax on nondiet soft drinks, which aims to reduce child obesity. A $1.50 can of Pepsi would then cost at least 25 cents more.

* A 4 percent tax on cable TV and satellite services, raising a $100 bill by $4.

* Hiking the cost of "personal" services - including haircuts, manicures, pedicures, massages and gym memberships - by 4 percent.

* A 4 percent sales tax on clothing and shoes under $500, except for two weeks out of the year.

* Elimination of the law that caps the state sales tax on gasoline at 8 cents per gallon.

these "checkpoints" are cheap revenue generators and nothing more.
