THE JEENYUS CORNER

Police in North Carolina are using the excuse of cracking down on drunk drivers this Saint Patrick’s Day weekend to set up constitutional check points without a warrant.

Performing warrant-less searches a Saturday night checkpoint along Sharon Amity Road netted slew of people. Thirteen were charged with driving while impaired.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police charged 48 people with driving without a license.

Authorities said 43 people are facing charges for a variety of charges including having an open container of alcohol and not wearing a seat belt.

Holidays like St. Patrick’s Day are routinely exploited by law enforcement agencies nation-wide.  Typically, the majority of the offenses are not what the intended purpose of the checkpoint is (alcohol) and more times than not the local government rakes in a lot of cash from the fines issued.
