    This whole mouth swab, no refusal blood test legislation is getting crazy. Strapping someone down to a gurney who refuses a blood test is insanity. The Bill of Rights were written for a reason.

    What surprised me was the quote in the first article from the ACLU in support of this farce. The one, and only way I'd be remotely ok with these plans is if the warrants were issued with reasonable and articulable suspicion. I.e. poor driving and failing a sobriety test. My fear is that either the officers will make bogus claims to get the warrant, like saying someone failed the sobriety test when they didn't, and judges too quick to issue the warrants without question.

    So some one refused a blood test and gets strapped down to a gurney and has blood drawn. The blood test comes back negative, now what do you do? or the test comes back at .08 and it's a first timer, so he gets a weekend in jail. All that for a weekend in jail? That's insane.

    They'd be better off suspending their license for 5 years or 10 years or whatever if they refuse the test, but we can't be strapping people down to a gurney for refusing a blood test.

    Now that you mention it, I have heard where some municipalities do stuff like that. I think the most popular version is they punish a refusal just as harsh as if you blew way over on a breathalyzer, which can include license suspensions.

    This is the state we live in. It makes you want to drive just erratic enough on the roads to get pulled over, refuse the test, get hauled in for a blood test, have it turn up negative then sue the municipal.

    They do both. Many states have the have an automatic lost of dl if you refuse. That punishment hits the second you say no.
    They get the warrant and draw blood. First time offense still carries a high punishment and if they went threw warrant you will get hit on the side closer to the max.
    If you are under the limit well you still have lost your dl and will be issued a ticket for a dui.
