Don't miss Declan McCullagh on the Gilpin County (Colorado) Sheriff's Office waylaying people at highway checkpoints so that the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation could gather breath, blood, and saliva samples.
I saw this blogged about here and there, yesterday. I've seen no considerable legal commentary on the thing, yet. Aside from the obvious general political principles of the matter (which would call for the entire Sheriff's department to be summarily driven off the nearest cliff), it seems equally obvious that this violates Title 18, U.S.C., Sections 241 and 242. Good luck even getting that case into court, though.
