This is a pretty important court decision by the 9th Court of Appeals. The gist of the case is that Tribal Police, along with Immigration and the Border Patrol, had a checkpoint on Arizona SH-86 (which I've been on). When pulled into the checkpoint by Tribal Police, the plantiff declined to show his papers to the Tribal officer. Read the link, but as I read it, the Tribal officer didn't have the legal right to hold (and later arrest) the non-Tribal member. Now, why the Border Patrol or Immigration didn't just come over and ask for the drivers license remains a mystery.
This blog is for me (Joe) to keep in contact with my friends and family who I don't see too much of because I work nights. If you're wandering by checking out the blog from the Internet, well, you're welcome too, I'm 50 years old and live in California. I'm married with two bonus daughters and three grandchildren. I write about sports, scooters, vacations in the RV, my atheism, funny pictures, and pretty much anything else I can think of. I welcome all opposing views as long as you can keep it civil, my mom does come by on occasion. And, as always, the true focus of my life is my marriage to Sandra and fulfilling The Plan. Though the blog is in the top 5.
