Don't worry, I did a double-take when I heard the man say it too. Yes, you just heard a federal agent tell an American citizen he was unlawfully detained because of the Constitution. Talk about arrogance!
Keep in mind a few pertinent facts.
This checkpoint sits well within the borders of the United States.
"This isn't a border crossing. That's different," Seim said. "I'm all for reasonable protection of our borders. This is an inland checkpoint in violation of the Constitution."
And no probable cause existed to warrant stopping and detaining Seim.
Consider the words of the Fourth Amendment.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Homeland Security is understandably a concern for many Americans. Watch this video and then tell us if you think people should be more concerned with preserving Constitutional rights in America.
Share if you think others need to question such intrusions by big government also.
