On I-80 in Nebraska we passed temporary signs of the “road construction ahead” sort, but these said “drug dog in operation” and “police drug check point ahead.”
As it turned out, there were no cops or dogs ahead. But if Nebraska is using its limited resources to stop traffic on the interstate to randomly search for drugs, then I think the state has forfeited any claim to being fiscally conservative. And Nebraska’s conservatives might want to give some thought to what constitutionalism means.
Unsurprisingly, I’m not the only one bothered by this.
