- it completely ignores the 4th amendment, and you can't not go through it in other words take another route in efforts to not go through it.
- it doesn't save money....in fact it's a giant waste of money and resources.
- out of the entire night of stopping and harrassing hundreds and hundreds of people depending on where it's at, only a handful or 2 are generally arrested, and sometimes it's on something else other than alcohol like a warrant or driving on a suspended license.
- No evidence?? All the evidence you need is to just take a trip down to your local 7/11 and look at the clowns that hang around the store at night. Let's not be stupid here. The reason why some people are below the poverty level is because they're stupid and made bad decisions growing up. Some may be technically out of their hands...tough shit it's not my problem and I don't think I should have to pay for someone else's food unless I choose to.
