Activists protest Manchester sobriety checkpoint
MANCHESTER- More than a dozen activists gathered to protest a sobriety checkpoint put on by Manchester police.
The checkpoint has been planned for weeks in an effort to crack down on impaired drivers.
The protesters say stopping drivers without reasonable suspicion violates our Fourth Amendment rights. They are also protesting the federal government's involvement in local policing through federal grants used to fund the checkpoint.
Manchester police received a federal grant for this checkpoint after noticing an uptick in drinking and driving incidents.
