(NaturalNews) In a demonstration of brute police state force that would make Hitler proud, the Gwinnett County Police Department (GCPD) in Georgia has adopted a new policy of forcibly drawing blood from suspected drunk drivers that refuse breathalyzer tests. According to FOX 5 News in Atlanta, GCPD officers have already begun aggressively hauling suspected drunk drivers down to the local police station to strap them down like wild animals, against their will, and conduct forced blood draws.

Following the lead of nearby Douglas County, which was the first in the Peach State to adopt the Fourth Amendment-trashing policy, Gwinnett County apparently sees nothing wrong with giving cops the freedom to physically assault and medically inject members of the driving public that they accuse, perhaps falsely, of drinking too much alcohol. No longer are suspects given the option to forego the breathalyzer in exchange for losing their license for a year -- if you refuse a breathalyzer, you will get put in a headlock and have a needle injected in your arm.

You can see for yourself the horrors of the new procedure in this shocking video posted by MyFoxAtlanta.com:

"Holding down and forcing someone to submit to this is really intrusive," explained defense attorney David Boyle to FOX 5 News in Atlanta about the blood draws. Boyle used to work as a Gwinnett prosecutor. "That level of invasive procedure into someone's body is ridiculous for investigating a misdemeanor. The practical application of that, in terms of forcing people down and holding them to stick a needle in their arm to get it, I think is just an unreasonable search of those people."

Forced blood draw policy threatens to extinguish protections against unreasonable searches

This is especially true in cases where police abuse comes into play, which is becoming increasingly common here in the "land of the free." If a disturbed or particularly aggressive cop decides he has a personal vendetta against someone he pulls over in Gwinnett, for instance, that person can be falsely accused of being drunk and towed down to the police station to be treated like a Guantanamo Bay prisoner.

"I don't think the practice of forced blood draws is how our society believes the problem of drunk driving should be handled," wrote one commenter in the MyFoxAtlanta.com comment section. "I do not remember authorizing, either implicitly or explicitly, the police to use force to make me comply. I do remember agreeing to forfeit my right to a drivers license should I choose not to submit."

But Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller disagrees, holding the position that forced blood draws are the "best way" to prove whether or not someone has been driving drunk. Forget any and all presumption of innocence -- the new American police state now believes it has the right to forcibly detain you and pierce your skin with a needle to verify your innocence. And sheriffs like Miller are pushing other police departments to adopt the same policy.

The Supreme Court previously ruled against forced blood draws following traffic stops in the case of Missouri v. McNeely. But the one exception to this ruling is when a warrant is obtained, which officers in Douglas County are now using to their advantage for every single suspected driver they pull over that they believe to be under the influence of alcohol. And as can be expected, conviction rates have increased in both counties since the new policy was enacted.
