Any day in which people debate the Constitution is a good day. Today is a very good day.
On the heels of the St. Charles high school decision to force students to take breathalyzers, comes this story from Aurora, Colorado in which a bank robber was believed to be making his escape by car.
So the police stopped cars at an intersection, handcuffed everyone (at least the adults) and searched their cars. They got the bank robber in the last car they searched, according to ABC.
“It’s hard to say what normal is in a situation like this when you haven’t dealt with a situation like this,” a police officer said. “The result of the whole ordeal is that it paid off. We have arrested and charged a suspect.”
The police chief says none of the 40 or so people handcuffed has complained.
