Though Mieses is a Massachusetts resident, he has never had a valid Massachusetts driver’s license for a passenger vehicle and has never applied for a motorcycle license, the Registry of Motor Vehicles said.

Registry records show that Mieses applied for a learner’s permit in 1999 and 2000, but that he never obtained a full license because he failed to pay fines imposed after he was ticketed for speeding in Lawrence in 1999. His last contact with the Registry was in 2001, when he obtained an identification card, registry records show.

Since 1999, he has been ticketed by police 16 times, in Lawrence, Methuen, Roxbury, Andover, and New Hampshire, according to registry records.

In June, the Registry notified the National Driver Register that Mieses was a habitual traffic offender whose right to drive in Massachusetts was revoked until 2017, records show

Rights can be revoked now?

Something all you statists out there need to get through your heads is there are no privileges or duties in a free society

End of exchange

Greg Roberts sounds good on paper but the truth of the matter is that in my lifetime, I have watched security on every front ramped up in direct relationship to the increase of irresponsibility exhibited by abusive people.

When I was a teenager I could go to the corner drug store and cash a personal check with no I.D. for spending money on a Saturday night out.
Try doing that today.

Every attack on our personal liberties is not some one sided assault.
The populace has given the so called 'authorities' plenty of justification to do what they do.

And now responsible gun owners are overwhelmed by a flood of assaults on their right to defend themselves.

Responsible drivers are paying the price for the abusers.

Responsible business owners pay the price of the cheats.

Every area of trust has been violated to the point that even responsible people are welcoming increased security which always leads to tyrannical power abuse.
