Probable cause is what? Being outside? Being in public?

Think of the good we could do and how much safer we'd all be if we just did away with the Constitution all together!

These tactics may do some good, but also look like some of what the Constitution was written to protect us from.

I don't think DUI checkpoints are legal, either. Same for random drug testing.

And don't get me started on the TSA pat down and grope.

Fine. If this country was suddenly deluged with a spate of suicide bombers who wore their dynamite vests under coats not plainly observable to the naked eye, and all the people caught with the vests or identified after they blew themselves (and possibly scores of other people) up were determined to be of swarthy-looking-middle-eastern ancestry, would you support stop and frisk on those individuals?

Oh No!! You’ve gone and done it now...never, and I mean never, bring the Constitution into a “discussion” of unwarrented stops, searches, roadblocks etc. What do you want? A bunch of dead children on your hands?

After all, whats a little liberty if we can all just feel a little safer?
