'As TFTP has reported on numerous occasions, motorists in police state USA are snagging DUI charges for being stone-cold sober. Roadside extortionists with badges calling themselves “experts” are the main culprits, according to several sources. Now, it seems, mainstream news media outlets are catching up on the sanctioned extortion and bravely reporting on the phenomena.
According to ABC 15 Arizona, stone-cold sober drivers in Phoenix, AZ are getting DUIs and have to spend thousands of dollars proving their innocence. It seems the source of the misunderstandings and illegitimate arrests, once again, come from Drug Recognition Experts (DRE), cops with badges and fancy titles who claim they can look at a motorist and on observation alone determine if someone is impaired.
You’d have to be God to know if someone is under the influence by simply looking at them. With that being the issue, worse still is the fact the DRE’s testimony often holds up in court without so much as a failed breathalyzer or a dirty toxicology report showing alcohol and drugs in someone’s system.
One Phoenix cop in particular, Officer David Morris, has made 56 DUI arrests since April 2018. In a state which annually doles out over 21,000 DUIs per year, Morris’ numbers are not all that astounding. It’s just that several of his alleged perpetrators whom he arrested for DUI were absolutely, completely, 100 percent, sober.
Tasha McConnell said her DUI was traumatizing. She said she was pulled over for failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign but that Morris wanted to dig into her drug history immediately asking her what drugs she was taking, prescription or otherwise. He told her that “eye tremors” were giving her away and his supposed DRE experience made an expert at determining impairment. McConnell told the press:
It was quite embarrassing…I knew I did nothing wrong…They just kept sticking to asking me what drugs I was on…He asked me if I was on marijuana. He insisted I was on harder drugs.
