    Supposedly these pigs have been "trained" to draw blood. Probably in about the same number of hours the academy spends on constitutional rights.

    Umm that's a no go situation, bigtime as I'm a hard enough stick as is for trained personel, let alone cops who have stamen a "course".

    Same reason why I won't have a cop with a unholstered weapon or tazer in hand near me or use the excuse "just incase they get out of control"... I'm yeah this won't end well.

    Seriously, drawing blood is not an easy thing to do.

    They think cops are going to be able to do it on the side of the road? That's nutz!

    In Texas, when they did this, they had the appropriate trained personnel on hand to do the blood draws, with a judge at the location, I believe, to rubber stamp the warrant. The cops were there to supply the muscle, hold the victim down, or tase them, or failing that, I guess shoot them in the back of the head. The issue isn't with the personnel. It's the violence of the act. This is an awful thing.

    Arizona gets away with it and cops do the draws in their cars!

    What is it about the Super Bowl that bring out the criminally insane in power-crazed authoritarians?

    I'm boycotting every aspect of the event on principle. Nothing, nada, zip that is in any way associated with this commercial event will touch my household.

    The Super Bowl is bloodlust for the masses. Gladiatorial combat for a modern age. (As is football in general.)

    As for this forced blood-drawing, it's just so obscene I don't know where to begin.

    Back in my Cogblog days, I mentioned once the fact that these portable DNA scanners were being developed and would soon be deployed. I didn't comment on it, I simply left it up to people's imaginations as to the uses to which they could be put, both good and bad. I got creamed. Absolutely hammered. My never-met-a-police-state-tactic-they-didn't-like-as-long-as-it's-in-a-Democratic-administration co-bloggers jumped down my throat. I did only one more post after that, then left for good. Here's the thread, if you have the stomach for it:
