The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution makes it impermissible for police or other government agents to seize persons or property, or to conduct searches of them, without a warrant or probable cause. Unfortunately, those due process and privacy guarantees are becoming empty promises as government at every level keeps Americans under constant surveillance -- from the NSA's electronic eavesdropping to the increasing use by local police of license plate readers that scan all vehicles within a targeted area. Warrant-less checkpoints are likewise becoming commonplace -- and a small but growing number of Americans are starting to challenge the assumption that we can be stopped and questioned by police at whim. The phrase "Your papers, please" has no place in a free republic. Joe Draego of Charlottesville, Virginia is among the brave and principled people who have challenged the legitimacy of police checkpoints. In early July, Mr. Draego was stopped at a checkpoint set up near his home and refused to comply when a police officer demanded to see his ID. He joins us today to explain what happened next -- and why he took the stand that he did.Stream: Facebook: #N3About:Next News Network's WHDT World News Program airs daily at 6pm and 11pm Eastern on Comcast, DirecTV and Over-the-Air and Online at World News is available to 6 million viewers from South Beach to Sebastian, Florida and to 2 million viewers in Boston, Massachusetts via WHDN.WHDT broadcasts on RF channel 44 (virtual channel 9) from Palm City and is carried on cable TV channels 44 (SD) and 1044 (HD) by AT&T, on cable channels 17 (SD) and 438 (HD) in West Palm Beach by Comcast, on satellite channel 44 (SD) in West Palm Beach by DIRECTV, and on WHDN-Boston which broadcasts on RF channel 38 (virtual channel 6) from the Government Center district in downtown Boston.More about WHDT:
