    “It’s sad that on a day that is celebrated for freedom and liberty, such a
    grotesque violation of both has occurred,” said Matthew Novak, Vice Chair
    of the Libertarian Party of Tennessee. “The Rutherford County Sheriff’s
    deputy trashing a lawabiding citizen’s constitutional rights on July 4th
    makes it clear that the very meaning of Independence Day has become lost
    on the law enforcement community in Rutherford County,” said Jim Tomasik,
    Chairman of The Libertarian Party of Tennessee.

    At the end of the video, Chris Kalbaugh summarizes his experience:

    I was yelled at, bossed around, my car ransacked without my consent, and had my rights taken away from me. All while not being detained. I broke no laws. Officer Ross told me that my Constitutional rights did not matter at checkpoints. He said it is OK to take away Constitutional rights and civil liberties for reasons of safety. He didn’t even ask me if I had been drinking. This was a DUI checkpoint. Happy 4th of July, America.

    "At no time during the checkpoint were any City of Murfreesboro Police Officers or K-9s present nor were they shown in the video. "

    The Sheriff's had a Facebook page as shown on a Google search.

    Too much vitriol spewed in the comments I reckon.

    P.S.
    They must be a little backward
    They did not conceal the directory structure of their old web site.
    http://www.rutherfordcounty.org/so/

    They did their web site with Frontpage.
    Never cleaned up their server.

    Me and my 15 year old daughter Lisa were taking shelter from rain at Senega Rocks when we met George (and few others) and found out that ADV rally was there...
    Oh well, maybe I should start reading other threads than "best pictures" and "buy gear"??

    We pushed same evening into Monongahela, which must have been a bit calmer than the rally;-) A week later, we had racked up 2542 miles with the old Guzzi Quota.

    I'll try to pay more attention to rally threads from now on....

    She may be 15, but knows the ADV rules;-)

    It was great meeting everyone. I came to ride and network with other riders. I had no idea that I would meet such a diverse mix of interesting characters. I would like to thank Phil for such a great ride. Phil, you are a genius with a map. Fred, you are the best, and we will be getting together soon. Todd, I enjoyed riding with you Saturday, and hope to get to ride some more with you. Bloochdog,:rofl you were a hoot and thanks for the the tip in Davis about Route 72. George, I enjoyed our deep conversations, and hope to have more. You set the bar high.

    I am fond of stating:
    "Be seated on the porch at Yokum's store and after a while a friend will ride in."

    And LEOs can't understand why no one respects or trust them anymore.

    I hope that guy sues the crap out of them.
