    You have the right to remain silent. So very true. And the police have the duty to arrest you if they perceive that you have broken the law or pose a threat to another person or yourself.

    Now anyone who refuses to co-operate with the legal authorities probably is a douche bag.

    What did this joker accomplish?

    He wasted 2 hours of his own time.

    He wasted the money it cost the highway patrol to send a patrolman.

    And he is fortunate that he didn't get a free ride to a holding area until he could talk to a lawyer and be sent on his way from there.

    All in all, an idiot. I'll bet he is also against closing the borders.

    What law could have been perceived to have been broken?

    What threat could have been perceived to have been construed?

    If I read this right it was an internal boarder patrol checkpoint. They have some that are fixed and some that they move around. I remember getting stopped at one half way between Corpus Christi and Laredo.

    No biggy are you American? Yes, from me my wife and her mother. (Remember the Mrs is American of Mexican decent)

    Where do you live?

    Corpus Christie.

    And where are you coming from?

    My father in laws grave in Laredo.

    Thank you sir have a pleasant day.


    Simple and we were on our way in less than a minute.

    Why were they there? I hope to look for illegals.

    Did it infringe upon my rights? I don't think so.

    They didn't infringe upon your rights because you chose to voulentarily give them information.

    That's fine if you're okay with the exponential expansion of DHS internal checkpoints.

    Now if you had gotten a bad vibe from the agents and had decided to not answer their questions for any reason that is fine as well according to the constitution anyway...

    And how, exactly, are the cops supposed to know who these 'REAL' crooks are? Do they have labels or some identifying mark?

    "Indefinite Detention"? Say what? The last time the United States revoked "habius corpus" was during which administration? No, it wasn't Nixon. It was Abe Lincoln.

    Funny thing is you have no problem with a person exercising their 2nd Amendment rights, yet you oppose them exercising their 5th Amendment rights. Rights are rights, and the more people assert the ones you don't like, like remaining silent, the easier it is for you to assert the ones you do. I would be willing to bet that if a police officer wanted to take away your guns the guy you just called a joker would be right there saying you have every right under the constitution to have them.
