Forced blood draws in Georgia by COPS (DUI Stops)!
Last comment by gacpl 10 months, 2 weeks ago.

DUI suspects face forced blood draws in some Ga. counties-. I believe DUI suspects should be punished but this may be a violation of their rights.

Suspected drunk drivers in some metro counties are getting a rude surprise when they refuse a breathalyzer test.

Instead of taking no for an answer, officers now obtain a search warrant to forcibly draw blood and get evidence for the case.


My concern is they strap you down by your head, neck arms and legs-even if you consent!


The key word: forcibly.

If your are accused of driving impaired and have nothing to hide; you should have no qualms providing proof that you are good to go.

I venture to say that if you ask a Family that has lost a loved one to the CRIME of drunk/impaired driving; they would laud the fact that more is trying to be done to eradicate drunk driving.

Ironically it seems most people worried about their "rights" being infringed upon in a lot of cases, DO have something to hide.

Anything that can be done to prevent/deter people from driving impaired saves lives. Once again at the end of the day if you have nothing to hide, then you would think you would be willing to do whatever you needed to do to prove it.

@HMJC-Don't complain if your driving home from Walmart and an over zealous cop thinks you've been drinking-arrest you- strap your neck -hands- legs-arms and feet to a bed even though you agree to allow them to test your blood-they strap you down whether you agree to the test or not. Let's talk about it after that experience.

Once again, you would think one would submit willingly in order to exonerate themselves. Someone that has nothing to hide one would surmise that someone with nothing to hide ,would have no issue with a field sobriety test or breathalyzer test alleviating the need for a blood test all together.
If you are getting strapped to a gurney to obtain a blood specimen you are either guilty or have something to hide period.

This is another example of hiding behind the constitution stating ones "rights" If you are in fact of driving impaired to a certain extent you have waived some of these protections due to actions of your own consequence.

The flip side being if an officer blatantly abusing a citizens right without probably cause; that is a different discussion.

To be frank,, any personal negative encounters with Johnny Law have directly correlated with my actions. And you know what? I was wrong... my fault, not the system or the man, all me...

I've never been in trouble with the law but I value my right not to have a foreign object stuck in my body because they think I'm drunk. I'm reading and listening with a third ear.

Sister, I'm reading you loudly and clearly on this issue.

I agree with you also.

Thanks

We're rapidly becoming a police state.

And our para-military law enforcement agencies all over the country are being reported to enforce with heavy hands.

Just for the record one reason the blood test is even an issue is the high percentage of suspected drunk drivers that consistently refuse the field tests. I still try to have faith and hope that this would only be used in a "reasonable" suspicion circumstance. Drunk driving destroys lives and Families at a catastrophic rate. If you put yourself in that position you should expect to be subject to the consequences of your own actions. This is a moot point for those that do not drink and drive impaired. It is only an issue if you cross that line.

its a cause and effect action. because lawyers have successfully argued that their client wasn't drunk due to a video of them falling all over the place doesn't "legally" make them drunk. all they would get is a one year licence suspension with no DUI on their records. a few have gone on to kill people later on. if they would have been allowed to count the DUI test video seen they refused a breathalyzer some people would not have been killed by a drunk driver later. it would not have came to this if the law was kept the way it was, if you turned down a breathalyzer test you were then legally drunk, you had to sign a paper refusing the test and it said you would be considered drunk for refusing.
