April 14, 2005 Homeland Security Checkpoint Stop

The first time I was stopped at a Homeland Security Checkpoint was on April 14, 2005. Having been stopped and arrested at an illegal joint task force roadblock conducted by tribal police, U.S. Customs, and the Border Patrol several years earlier - merely for asking a few questions, I always make sure to carry a camera with me when traveling along this road.

After the 2002 arrest, I fought the charges in court and had them dismissed 'with prejudice'. I then sued the tribal police for malicious prosecution and civil rights violations in federal court. That case is currently in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals with details available at:

On the day of this video, I wasn't expecting to be stopped at a checkpoint but my camera allowed me to record the details of the stop. A complete write-up of the 2005 incident is available at:

  • You must live in southern Arizona.
    So you must know of the MASSIVE amount of illegal immigrants and drug traffickers that pass through southern Arizona.

    You must work in Arizona so you HAD to have seen the MASSIVE number of illegal workers here in various businesses. You would have seen the change in the construction workforce these past 20 years and the wages barely move. Try being a contractor. The amount of illegal workers was absurd. Nor is there any draw from our youth for apprenticeship f More..

  • As an American, you are an Idiot. First of all if you have nothing to hide then let them ask and answer the questions. You came off as an asshole in this video. Poeple like u deserve the full border patrol treatment, because you think that the security of the rest of the citizens of America is a joke. You wouldnt give a F*ck when Americans are killed and you would site the Constitution for your own benefit when it serves u best.
    What a LMOH!!

    • How are they providing "security" by asking everyone that pulls up they're a US citizen? That proves what? Absolutely nothing.

      My main problem is that this is 40 miles into the US not on the US border where you'd expect them to ask these questions.

      You state he sites the constitution for his own benefit. GMAN that's what it's there for.

      From my own experience, about 10 years ago I was in South Padre Island off the the coast of Texas. I hit one of these so called Immigratio More..

  • My friend you are a ******* full bred ass hole. Get a life. As a matter of fact why don't you pack your bags and buy a one way ticket out of this country. You ******* liberals make me sick. Actually I hope some of the heroin that makes it to the US gets into your kids arm. Better yet I hope that illegal alien that made it through that checkpoint slaughters your whole family for a plasma TV and gameboy. If we're lucky maybe Muhammad can sneak an explosive device through that checkpoint and blow i More..
