D.C. Police discontinue checkpoint program

AP reports:

The District of Columbia has decided not to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court over a federal appeals court decision that its police checkpoints were unconstitutional.

In a court filing Monday, D.C. Attorney General Peter J. Nickles said D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier has canceled the special order authorizing the Neighborhood Safety Zone program.

GLAA objected to the checkpoints last year. This is good news. We can protect the public safety without trampling on basic civil liberties.
