Well... I am not going to get into a whole immigration debate but I do want to point out a few things...
First- did anyone notice, in both examples linked in this thread, that what these immigrants were pulled over for is pretty lame? Potentially bogus?
1. Improper right turn. How many times have we seen this used as an excuse to pull someone over? Think carefully about the actual charge. How hard it
is to turn right? Did he fail to signal by 300 feet prior to the turn and instead signaled at 10 feet?
2. License plate light out. Is this really a danger to anyone? Is it a danger to other drivers? Again, this is such a bullcrap excuse to pull someone
over much less give them a ticket for. I have had it happen to me a few times, and I can honestly say that this was an excuse used to pull me over
because the cop was simply suspicious of me for whatever made up reason he had in his head.
As far as being an issue of being a threat to public safety because the driver had no license, no insurance etc... I can honestly say, that idea is
There are millions of citizens who drive on the roads who have no insurance, no license. They get to where they have to go with no issues at all. They
are not a threat to public safety. Some may have a license, but no insurance. Others have insurance, but no license. The way the DMV suspends drivers
license's it should not come as a shock. I myself drive with no insurance and no license and I have for 10 years. Why? I cant get insurance cause I
have no license. My license is suspended in another State for reasons they admit are a mistake, but I have to pay the fines anyway. Plus, this State
wants me to take a class I have already taken and paid for a second time over, at my expense. Total cost of fines and class? $1500.00 and I simply can
not afford it. It has also been my experience that drivers who are not legal to drive, actually drive more carefully than people who are legal to
drive. The reason for it is simple, illegal drivers dont want to get pulled over. So they do the speed limit. They use their signal. They come to
complete stops at a stop sign and count to 3 before moving. They are usually in no big hurry and piss off all those legal drivers who are usually
speeding, switching lanes at the last second without signaling, slowing down and rolling through the stop sign instead of stopping, who drive like
complete selfish pricks who think they own the road and you need to get out of their way.
So pardon me if I laugh hysterically at your whole "threat to public safety" argument.
