Allow us to introduce you all to Marvin E. Holmes, Jr. He's a state delegate from Prince Georges County and the latest graphic illustration that you don't have to actually know anything about federal and state law to be elected to craft those laws. To wit: Marv is pimping a bill, which presumably, he crafted with his own hands and brain, that, if adopted, would require anyone under the age of 21 seeking a driver's license in Maryland to first submit to drug and alcohol testing. ... Let's pause here for a moment to ponder Marv's grasp of constitutional law...
Okay, that's long enough.
Marv, Marv, Marv. Where do we begin with you. Oh, I know, how about the Fourth Amendment. You know, that's the one that prohibits search a search of a persons home, papers, effects and person Without A Freaking Warrant. Then let's proceed to the Fifth Amendment, preventing self incrimination..And let's not forget the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
I mean, holy Gawd, can the man really be this ignorant of basic law? We can only hope this piece of crap was written for him by a legislative aide. Then Marv can fire his ignorant ass. But if Marv actually wrote it.... woe is us.
