Sheriff takes tough stand, firmly believes roadblocks are unconstitutional, except in this case:
The Summit County, Ohio sheriff believes roadblocks are unconstitutional and ineffective in fighting drunk driving -- except when the roadblocks come with cash. Sheriff Drew Alexander will accept $175,000 in state grants, usually paid for with federal gas tax dollars, that the state will only offer to law enforcement agencies that agree to set up roadblocks. The Akron Beacon Journal newspaper asked Alexander if he thought roadblocks violated the Fourth Amendment.So we can book him for perjury now, right? Violating his oath and all.
"I do," Sheriff Alexander responded.
