Kentucky 715 near entrance into park at Red River Gorge

Campton, KentuckyJun 01, 2002

The police at this roadblock carry out an operation they call "playing the game." They immediately accuse you of having drugs on you, and inform you that if you don’t fork them over everyone in the car is going to jail (an obvious bluff). They are notorious for searching teenagers and young adults, and if you have long hair, dreadlocks, or are wearing a bandana, you can count on being searched. They wasted a good forty-five minutes of our time trashing our car and letting dogs trample all over it. They seemed to be making a lot of arrests. Since my experience, it has come to my attention that there are frequently roadblocks in this exact area.
