Cyclist busted for carrying cocaine

Original post made on Sep 15, 2008

Police arrested a man riding a bicycle under the influence of drugs or alcohol at a sobriety checkpoint in Palo Alto late Friday night. The checkpoint, at Alma Street and Churchill Avenue, was being manned by Palo Alto, Mountain View and Los Altos police. Just before midnight, a bicyclist crossed the railroad tracks, ran a red light, and was almost struck by a car, all in full view of surprised officers, said Palo Alto Police Agent Dan Ryan.

What is the probable cause for stopping someone at a 'sobriety checkpoint'? Wrong place, wrong time?

The war on terror has now merged with the war on drugs, heroin funds the Taliban, cocaine funds FARC, meth and grass fund the Mexican/FARC terrorists.
We need to destroy their business by legalization or ruthless prosecution, I am neutral on the means but the job must be done.
