Of course, you have to pay for that somehow. . .
Enter that great bastion of legendary crime fighting known as "speed traps" and "rolling through a stop sign."
The last ticket I got was less than a hundred yards from my house in our little suburb. The barely-old-enough-to-shave officer accused me of "rolling through a stop sign" as I was turning left heading to my cul-de-sac. I'm pretty sure I didn't roll through it, but his word against mine, you know?
I went down to City Hall and raised pure effing hell with the city manager. I shouted that we must have ALL CRIMES SOLVED, CLOSED AND THE CRIMINALS CONVICTED AND LOCKED AWAY since we had so much time and resources to sit on our asses at 2:00 in the afternoon in dead-end streets waiting on a traffic violation.
And that is my point. During my time in law enforcement, I never met a good cop that wanted to be relegated to traffic enforcement. If they caught you busting a read light or scorching through a four-way stop sign or something of the such, they'd certainly pull you over and ticket you.
But these dipdunk city managers and useless "chiefs of police" of these three-person departments who can only exist on traffic fines. . . That's not police work.
That's revenue collecting.
This guy had the right idea how to handle his fine and it's a work of pure art.
