Activists showing support for a man pulled over for honking in support of them.
DUI checkpoints have become a normal way of life across America. The violation of the fourth amendment is common place where people have become domesticated to the idea that police have the authority to stop and search you for simply traveling under the guise of “safety”. In New Hampshire, it has become common place for dozens upon dozens of activists to take out cameras and show their opposition to the police. On the night of 7-25-14, roughly 30 plus activists took part in warning motorists of the check point and confronting police about their illegal activity. By yourself in any other part of America, this would be considered crazy and unsafe. In New Hampshire, showing resistance and opposition to the police state is just a normal night.
Last night there was a DUI checkpoint in Manchester. This is a federally-funded program. Some activists held signs to warn drivers of the impending stop so that they could avoid it. One man who appreciated this honked his horn in support, and he was arrested. Here is the video of that arrest:

Last night there was a DUI checkpoint in Manchester, NH. Some activists caught wind about the event and created signs to warn drivers to divert their paths. Dozens of activists participated, and probably hundreds of drivers were saved from unwanted interactions with police. Some people handed out “Know Your Rights” cards to passers-by on the street. I took video throughout the night to document this effective activism. One of the highlights of my night was rolling through the traffic stop with James “Robin Hood” Cleaveland. The checkpoint begins 5 minutes into the video. Here’s how it went:
