No, they don’t object to testing you for breath alcohol when they pull you over for going 5 miles over the speed limit on I-35. (Example taken from a recent Austin DWI arrest.)

They object to being breath tested themselves.

After they shoot somebody.

The New York City Police Department is moving to require officers to take breath tests for alcohol if they shoot someone…

Four of the five officers involved in the shooting are detectives, and the union that represents them criticized the breath test recommendation, saying such a measure — which would apply to all police officers — was subject to collective bargaining…

Requiring that police officers take breath tests after shootings — whether the officers are on duty or off — is a significant change…

So, if a police officer asks you to take a breath test, should you exercise your right to refuse, or should you do what the police union would have their members do?

Oh wait… either way, you would end up refusing the breath test. And after all, you didn’t even shoot anyone.
