Police state America has found a disturbing new way to forcibly take motorists blood without a warrant.
Law enforcement is using private hospitals to do their dirty work.
Earlier this year, I reported that police in Oregon were forcing hospitals to take motorists’ blood without a warrant.
I thought it would end there and the courts would call the practice illegal, I could not have been more wrong.
Oregon Appeals court sides with law enforcement…
As part of defendant’s medical treatment, hospital staff had drawn a sample of his blood and tested it, ascertaining that his BAC was .333 percent. After defendant refused to consent to a blood draw, Trooper Dunlap did not seek a warrant for a blood draw. Nor did he ask hospital staff for the results of the blood test. However, pursuant to their duty under ORS 676.260, hospital staff verbally disclosed to Dunlap that defendant’s BAC was .333 percent and Dunlap included that information in his police report.
