Police state take 2 - Based on the response from my previous DUI question, it was obvious most did not watch the kindly provided news report at the link in my comments. After watching the clip, please confirm if yesterday's response remains the same.

I say reasonable. When you have watched two innocent people being burned alive next to and in their car because they were broadsided by a drunk driver, then try to tell me how it is unreasonable. Driving is a Privilege not a Right. Don't DUI!

I am not supportive of drinking and driving period. My distaste is that even cooperative individuals are forced to be tied down and a forearm to the head for a blood draw. This is going too far in my book...

Take the license, put them in jail, but if people have issues with kids getting spanked, then this should raise a huge red flag.

I said "consenting" adult. The video stated they strap down even consenting adults.

Looks like they have to get a search warrant to pull the blood. I'm okay with it.
I'm a little biased when it comes to dui's

WATCH THE VIDEO! There's no common sense to the requirement of 6 officers to strap down a person giving consent to the simple blood draw. That's fuching going too far!

They have a search warrant from a judge. I'm okay with that. And I've watched the video. Again, if they get a warrant, I'm good.

6 officers for a consenting adult. Where's your common sense, commonsense?

You are equating an unruly prisoner to police undermining your rights.

If the police have a SEARCH WARRANT, the prisoner can bitch, moan , and fight all they want, but the police have the right.

Same as if police get a warrant to search your home.

I spent my whole summer in a body cast thanks to a drunk driver I have no sympathy for them what so ever. If you have a problem with drinking don't drive. Face the consequences of your actions.

I'll play devil's advocate. Quit drinking and driving and you won't have to get your blood drawn. I say this from someone that was almost killed twice by a drunk driver.

Don't mean to appear as obstinate, but I find it hard to believe the number of folks who had no issues with the procedures implemented by this county.
