Reading like this makes me want to be become a lawyer. The intentions are good: get drunk drivers off the road, but the methodology just seems so wrong to me. I'm not comfortable with a templated, faxed, and quickly rubberstamped search warrant giving a police officer permission to invade my body either.

I am currently discussing this with my lawyer. I am all for cleaning up the roads but, turning over the right to the state to invade my body with out my doctors permission or the doctor controlling the environment is horrifying to me. I also wonder what type of situations this lends for people who have physical and psychological issues with needles.

OK is that way. Its ridiculous because you know the judge isn't taking any time to actually READ the warrant. only knows what he's giving the police permission to blood test for. I could envision a scenario where someone gets pulled over for DWI, has blood drawn, isn't drunk.......and then gets charged with possession of narcotics because he popped a loritab the day before. The judge didn't bother to check the warrant to make sure he was giving the police permission to ONLY check for alcohol.

I think we all agree that Driving while Intoxicated is bad.

Having said that, tossing your "right to remain silent" out the window is another matter. I think this a politically motivated "gestapo-esque" tactic for someone looking to further thier political career, period.
