SHOCK!!! KANSAS 'NO REFUSAL WEEKEND' DEMANDS BLOOD FROM DRIVERS!!!
Tone deaf authorities in the Sunflower State threaten the townsfolk with a vampiric crackdown in an otherwise important effort to keep streets safe.
Take a look:
Fox4KC: New effort to crack down on drunk drivers in Kansas has law enforcement launching “No Refusal Weekend”
If a suspected impaired driver refuses a breath test -- law enforcement will get a warrant for a blood test.
Many impaired drivers refuse the breath test in an attempt to avoid a conviction. Authorities believe "No Refusal Weekend" is one way to help combat that and help cut down on deadly crashes.
However . . .
DON'T FORGET THAT CONGRESSMAN YODER ONCE REJECTED POLICE!!!

Moreover . . .
The reality of this crackdown is that Kansas law enforcement is basically telling drivers that they'll be out on the street in full force demanding the blood of anyone who dares to stand up for their Constitutional rights.
Don't get it twisted . . . Drunk driving is wrong, dangerous and irresponsible but law enforcement out for blood also threatens the freedom and liberty of our communities while sending the wrong message about DUI prevention that hopes to keep everyone safe.
