Eleven Drunks Nailed at DUI Checkpoint While KC-MO Police Run Out of Cars to Run Calls

Firstly- I am totally against drunk drivers.


Secondly however- I'm also totally against random police checkpoints in our so-called "free" country.


The KANSAS CITY STAR reports this Saturday that "11" intoxicated drivers out of nearly 360 citizen-drivers that were stopped at a DUI checkpoint in KC"s Old Northeast area overnight.


Meanwhile- at least two KC-MO Police patrol zones- East and Center- were "blacked out" for more than thirty minutes early Saturday morning.


"Blacked out" means there are no patrol cars in that zone to run ordinary police calls.


This blogger wonders in print how the dozen or so cops at the DUI checkpoint- if dispersed throughout the city if even in 'roving' drunk patrols- could have alleviated backlogged citizen's requests for police attention early this morning.
