There are standards and laws regulating how long it must be yellow. Many areas have been caught breaking those laws to increase their ticket revenue.
We have the countdown timers on most lights with a crosswalk in the tampa bay area. Soon as it hits 0, light goes yellow. They really are a great way to help reduce accidents.
The response to "Yes, we are conducting an investigation" is what are the charges?
They can't detain you without cause, and they can't fingerprint/take dna without charging you.
Remember: It's only being done in red states by state police.
I'd refuse, and I don't drive drunk or stoned. The government already has my DNA from my time in the military, but it sure as hell doesn't mean I'm giving it to some podunk cops who abuse their power at every turn.
Bitcoin is valued at what it is because people say it is. Nothing more. It's still entirely fiat.
Same with gold. Same with silver, same with every other "backing" that people assume will fix the world and usher in a libertarian utopia that mirrors that of Somalia.
It's a scam, and your the sucker.
And that means a very vocal and visible dissident, or a high profile business refusing to comply. It's not like china hasn't had many of those cases.
Oh I know, I'm just expecting a news report that china executes someone for BTC use within the next year or so. After all, it is china.
You should realize by now all currency is fiat, including BTC, and especially included gold/precious metal backed. There is no value except what we decide it's worth. The gold is inherently not worth a specified amount, but has been decided to be worth an amount based on what someone thinks they can sell it for. This rage against nationalized currency is a fraud perpetuated by those attempting to rob the blind ignorant sheep who continue to buy their lies wholesale. Those same people bought up tons of gold when it was cheap, then told you to buy it because FIAT CURRENCY RAGE. Now their offloading all that gold onto you, where they take your money at 15x what they paid for the exact same product 5 years ago and you get stuck with a metal that you can't spend.
It is china, where they execute people for bankrupting a company. I doubt they'd just throw them in jail because of that.
The bitcoin bubble gets inflated and bursts monthly. When silkroad closed the same thing happened.
The concept is neat, but the chance of it ever becoming more has always been nil.
We've got extremely good evidence fusion is a great energy source too, unless you deny the existence of the sun.
You sir have obviously never known the horror of a boot filled with icy water on a cold day.
The real question is how many boots of water will it contain.
Yeah just like the ones who created a nonexistent no filming law, arresting people for having cameras pointed in the vicinity of cops.
Or maybe they are just corrupt. I'll go with they are corrupt.
