For all of you who don't like the posting of names Jason Kidd's name is all over the News and the Web for DWI. Another supposed PROFESSIONAL sports figure and idol of small children.

Unfortunately for you police state advocates out there, we have a thing called the Constitution in the United States, which is supposed to protect us from unreasonable searches and seizures carried out by all governmental agencies that lack probable cause. I'm sure that doesn't concern the rest of you though, as you seem to justify the erosion of the constitutional rights of all Americans in the name of saving individual lives. It's a shame that you'll sacrifice constitutional rights that the founders of this nation fought and died for in order to feel a little more safe.
