A while back we had some discussion about in country ICE checkpoints being real or not. I explained that at real checkpoints the officer would be in full tac gear with their M4 in a tactical sling and any hesitation would be met with a comply or else attitude. I missed the uniform, but I got most of the rest of it right. Here's a photo of a checkpoint set up where cops were trying to flush out a gunman the other day. See the difference between the pretend ICE checkpoints where they can only ask you to comply and a for real LE checkpoint where the full weight of law is right outside your car door? I get the hardware, but trained on someone for no other reason than the had the bad luck to be in a certain area at a certain time. Too much for me.
