Sheriff’s Office Won’t Participate In Future ‘No Refusal’ OVI Checkpoints

Here we have a case of the Sheriff’s Department responding to the outrage of the community. It seems an Infowars’ article on this OVI Checkpoint, caused a big reaction from residents of Ohio.  (There is a video on the News-Sun website page of a local TV newscast.) – Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor

SPRINGFIELD —

Clark County’s sheriff said his department will not participate in another “no refusal” OVI checkpoint like the one held Friday because of the amount of negative feedback from the community.

“If this is not a positive event then we need to find another way to do our job and create an environment of public safety, and I’m intending to do that,” Clark County Sheriff Gene Kelly said.

The Clark County OVI Task Force, made up of 13 area agencies, had 464 drivers go through its first “no refusal” OVI checkpoint Friday at the intersection of U.S. 40 and 68.

“No refusal” means that a magistrate, prosecutor and nurse are readily available to request, sign and carry out a search warrant compelling a blood test from suspected drunk drivers who refuse a breathalyzer test.

The new type of OVI checkpoint drew protesters from around the state who warned drivers about the approaching checkpoint.

“It’s a fourth amendment thing,” protester Hans Oak said.

One person who admitted to drinking that night was taken out of the checkpoint line and given a field sobriety test.

He passed and was released.

However, two drivers who tried to avoid the checkpoint by turning off before it, were arrested for OVIs by cruisers in the area. There were five opportunities to turn off before the checkpoint after signs let drivers know it was coming.

One of those drivers agreed to a breathalyzer test and the other, who was suspected of being on drugs, agreed to a blood test.

No search warrants were needed Friday night.

Springfield Police Division Lieutenant Tom Zawata said he does not know if there will be another “no refusal” checkpoint this year, but this first one was done to help educate the public.

“We chose to use it at this checkpoint as a way to make the public aware there is an opportunity and existing ability to attain a search warrant,” Zawata said.

Anita Biles, a health educator with the Clark County Combined Health District, said the idea for the no refusal checkpoint came from the prosecutor’s office. She said they had recently attended a training seminar and presented the idea to the task force.

Meanwhile, Clark County got a decrease in grant money from the federal government for its OVI checkpoints this coming year. It averaged about one a month last year, Biles said, and will only have five more until next October.

  1. Resist Tyranny.
    I personally will be KIA before I will allow ANYONE to stick a needle in my body.
    I’m not a career military man Primarily because I saw first hand what “vaccinations” did to Gulf War Vets.
    Forced vaccinations upon all in military service. NO CHOICE. Needle or that damn air injector.

    Ever seen someone with “gulf war syndrome”? It is terrible.
    Maybe it was the vaccines?
    Maybe it was the bad water supplied by sub standard contractors?
    Maybe it was the depleted uranium?
    Any of above could have made people ill.
    But I saw how the Military Leadership, Medical, and VA, treated brothers with issues due to Gulf War Syndrome?
    Ignore. Dismiss. Sweep under rug. Deny. Lie. Discredit those men with problems.
    After witnessing Leadership, Medical, VA, behavior. I decided HELL NO. I will Not work for you.

    No one has the Right to Inject me with Anything.
    No one has a Right to take my DNA with that blood sample and catalog it on a damn database.
    No one has a Right to put a needle in my arm and STEAL my blood. It is mine.

    No Forced vaccinations. No forced medication. No forced blood draw.
    I will be KIA on the spot before that occurs. So help me God.
    I will protect myself with Any and All means Available.
    The Police Thugs will be required to beat me beyond Recognition, Kill me.

    My blood is my own. My Liberty is Granted by God. Not by a roadside kangaroo court/judge.
    This is America? No. “Amerika under Treasonous TYRANTS.”

  2. Looks like the tyrants didn’t get the message we sent them back in 1776. Now they have come back for more. This time I hear they amassed a fortune of over $500 TRILLION. This time we take it all.
