In the past 5 days, we have brought you several stories about police roadblocks. Over that period of time, we have received emails questioning the need to host a sobriety checkpoint or a drivers license checkpoint. In the previous newscast we aired, we told our listeners about checkpoints that will be set up in Rutherford County on Friday and Saturday. The Rutherford County Libertarians are against the idea, suggesting that the checkpoints are an infringement of your rights.

Several months ago, a member of the Rutherford County Libertarians drove through a drivers license checkpoint and refused to roll his window down all the way when a Sheriff Deputy approached his vehicle. The incident was caught on camera and later posted to YouTube. The driver of the car claimed that his vehicle was wrongfully searched, which is a point that was highlighted by Axl David. The video garnished over 4-million views within one week. Comments posted below the video suggest that a high number of people are against the idea of checkpoints by law enforcement (see the video below).

Scott Walker interviewed Axl David. Hear the entire interview below (10min and 53sec):
