Good news for San Marcos drivers.

Sheriff’s deputies did one of their DUI “check points” in San Marcos last night, and out of 4,797 drivers who were counted and passed through the inspection spot, only 4 persons were arrested for DUI.

Between 7 p.m. and 1:30 a.m., Friday night through early Saturday morning, deputies sent 23 cars to “secondary for evaluation,” according to spokeswoman Stephanie Guerra. There were 15 citations issued for “various violations.”

Deputies did tow away one vehicle that “the driver abandoned in the roadway just east of the checkpoint,” located in the 1300 block of West San Marcos Boulevard. Three other vehicles also got towed away last night.

If this does not prove how oppressive these warrantless liberty schemes are, nothing will. If it were not for the grant funding of these repress-o-matic devices, agencies would not hold them, because they are costly, they produce little results, and the few constitutionalists still working in police forces realize they are a sign of tyranny. But that is the real motive for these things - the cops can showing the motoring public who is in charge around here - they can stop your forward movement, grill you, look into your faces and cars, smell your breath, and then let you pass or not. As Justice Thomas observed, the Framers would not have tolerated this sort of suspicionless liberty invasion, but we are, of course, a long way from the small-government/big-liberty America the Framers envisioned, and we are rushing farher with every tolerated liberty invasion by government.
