Dalton, GA: City will continue to use road blocks

Dalton, GA: City will continue to use road blocks...Concerns from Dalton’s Latino community about roadblocks in the city broadened into a law enforcement civics lesson Wednesday night at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. Police Chief Jason Parker answered questions about why the controversial law enforcement practice will continue -- and what role they play in keeping crime down...“During road blocks, people of all color and ethnicity travel through (them),” he said. “We’re not looking for particular people.”...road checks were helpful for finding suspects with outstanding warrants for robberies, burglaries and thefts, and that traffic concerns ranging from DUIs to seat belt violations and children improperly buckled in or not restrained could be addressed.
