DEA wants to shoot every car passing through SW corner of Utah

If DEA calls it a 'drug corridor,' is that good enough reason to eliminate the 4th Amendment?


This idea should go back in the DEA's little medical bag of tricks to wait for a time when the Constitution is no longer relevant, or when everyone in Utah, Massachusetts and every other state are so upstanding they could never be embarrassed, never caught in flagrante and never, never need to exercise their right not to be searched and seized in public for no reason other than that people they don't know sometimes smuggle drugs down the same road.

Not a good enough excuse to consider everyone a bad apple, DEA; go back to the drawing board and try again. On the plan, not the rationalizations.
