Will Grigg?s Liberty Minute

What will it take for prosecutors and police to understand that the Bill of Rights is not optional?
In anticipation of Memorial Day Weekend, San Antonio District Attorney Susan Reed announced the imposition of a policy called ?No Refusal Accepted.?

The San Antonio Express-News explains: ?Any [motorist] who refuses to submit to a blood alcohol breath test this weekend will be required to have his or her blood drawn?. A registered nurse will be on duty both at the San Antonio Magistrate?s office and the detention center to draw blood from anyone arrested on suspicion of drunken driving who refused at the scene to take a breath test.?

Compelling a motorist to submit to a test is an obvious violation of the 4th and 5th Amendments. Forcing a driver who refuses that indignity to supply a blood sample is a policy worthy of Communist East Germany. The same can be said, apparently, of many of our police and prosecutors.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
