So I've stated in several past postings how I feel about our boys in blue. I have also stated how I feel about the excessive amount of checkpoints
and speed traps. I have to say its been some what effective in slowing down traffic however I do not feel this was the goal.
Since it has worked you think you would see a drop in tickets so it would also mean a drop in revenue for the county. I dont see that as a
possible outcome since they would have to do more with less which we all know governments are incapable of doing.
So what comes next? do people drive safer meaning less cash for our local governments and they lay of the 4, 000 cops they just hired. Does the local
governments pass stricter laws to insure revenue growth and keep hiring new police officers?
If its the latter is this how our government plans to survive the fiscal nightmare we are in. How strict will it become?
I had a thougt once how lucky criminals were in the 50s-60s no internet primitive camera's primitive csi back then blood was blood. You really
could get away with murder but with that came greater freedom you were not spied on as much or so capably. Then the 80's came and police upgraded
capabilities at the same pace as the public then exceded them in the 90's and laws became stricter quickly generating revenue to pay for them. It
only got worse from there bigger fines, stricter laws, longer prison tearms, pay to stay prisons. It became a buisness not a service and we are the
products or sheep that are bartered for either in time or money.
So for every expansion we sacrifice liberty for more saftey and pay dearly or I am getting this wrong?
What say you ATS?
