‘What Country Is This!?’: DUI Suspects Strapped Down To Have Blood Drawn By Force

June 28, 2013 by  

Many States have had longstanding policies that allow police to obtain a warrant to forcibly draw the blood of people suspected of drunk driving if they refuse to submit to a breathalyzer test.

While many Americans likely support efforts to convict drunk drivers, a recent report from Fox 5 Atlanta illustrates just how intrusive the policies are.

Here is the Fox 5 report.

And here is footage of a similar incident in Gillette, Wyoming on May 22, 2012 when police drew blood from a DUI suspect after getting a warrant.

In 2005, the Supreme Court ruled that procedures like the one highlighted in the videos above hold up to Constitutional muster.

    Excuse me but how does this “pass constitutional muster”? I truly do not recognize this country anymore. Apathy has killed our republic. Apathy. Not my problem. Nothing to see here, move along. Go back to your self absorbed lives. Stand for nothing. Dont make any waves. Not my job.
    It took the blood of millions of our ancestors to buy us the freedom to look the other way, to decide to not get invoved.
    I am ashamed.

    Just for the record, I am a conservative republican who wants Obumer impeached. I’m a nurse and I find this perfectly ok. If this guy was arrested for DUI , and he clearly refuses to give a blood sample then as a nurse I know that people can get pretty violent when they are “High” on what ever drug is in their system. Spend sometime inside of an ER and this will become very obvious. Their mood can escalate at any time. The mask put on his head is a spit mask. He is placed in a chair with restraints so he can’t start ‘swinging’ at the officers or the nurse and try to hurt someone. This isn’t any different than what we would do at the hospital for an uncooperative patient who is baker acted. Just listen to what this guy is saying that doesn’t make any sense; he says, “You can’t draw any blood because I haven’t signed the warrant”, “I want you to draw 4 vials of blood and put 2 in my pocket”. For anyone who has a problem with this then you tell me how you would get blood from an uncooperative person. The only humane way is restraints because the alternative is someone sitting on him. This goes on everyday in hospitals nationwide. I’m just glad that they got him off the road before he killed someone and MADD had to get involved.

    Where I am from. If you refuse the breathalyzer you automatically lose your license. It keeps this very thing from happening

        Then please Sir surrender your drivers license because if you think that it is OK to let intoxicated people drive then we don’t need you on the road either. By the way , they do restrain dogs at the Vet to get blood because no one wants to get bit , and they use muzzles too. There is no reasoning with intoxicated/High difficult people, I have tried multiple times, you just go round and round with them and they still think that they can get drunk, get behind the wheel putting you and me at risk of death by their hands and they believe they have no responsibility to be responsible. THAT is what is unacceptable. Everyone has rights ,but they also have responsibilities to not endangers others lives on purpose. You have a right to drive knowing that others are serious about not purposely endangering you or your family. If someone tried to HIT you would you hit them back or would you say “Oh, that’s ok you have that right because it was what you wanted to do. “? I’m not trying to argue, just trying to explain from another point of view. Have a nice day.

          There are other ways to handle situations. Maybe he dont believe in medicine, has a phobia of needles. Could be any number of reasons he mite have refused. They could have submitted a statement to the judge, did he have a leagal council. Theres another view for you
