People get harassed by Lynwood Sheriffs for warning people of Police Checkpoint

5/7/10 9pm

People warned oncoming drivers of a checkpoint which deterred them from getting their cars "legally" stolen by the state for not having a license.

The police and sheriffs target communities of color for their "sobriety" checkpoints which is an excuse to attack the undocumented community.

The action that people took against it, took signs and warned oncoming drivers, was successful. Many people from that community were thankful. Even though they were harassed by the police, they remained out there for the whole night. The police tried to intimidate, but they even shut down early because of the people that took action.
