CITY COUNCILMEMBER CHALLENGES EXCESSIVE POLICE CHECKPOINT

INLAND DAILY BULLETIN, CA Councilwoman Cristina Carrizosa isn't opposed to police checkpoints, but she does have problems with a May 3 checkpoint at Mission Boulevard and San Antonio Avenue of which vehicles were stopped by officers in all four directions. The matter exploded on yet another level at Monday's City Council meeting when she described police efforts at the checkpoint as reminding her of the Gestapo.

"There was an excess of personnel, an excess of equipment, an excess of outside police forces and an excess of hours," Carrizosa said. . . . In her comments Carrizosa said: ". . . the situation that I saw that frankly reminded me of what I had seen (and) what I have watched in movies that were portraying the situations during the occupation of European countries by the Gestapo and from military or paramilitary organizations."
