Squawk of the day - May 24, 2012

"We continue to have armed robberies, murders, break-ins, assaults and auto thefts daily, yet local and state leaders and law enforcement will again waste resources on Click-It or Ticket and 100 Days of Heat. While these may be productive ways to enforce traffic codes, for the most part these are not violent offenders. Solve the real crime problems before we nab the little lady with no proof of insurance, or the working stiff that forgot the fasten the seatbelt."

By law they don't have to, Thats why there have been more Second Chance (Bullet Proof Vests) saves in accidents than shootings.

How about the DUI they pull off the streets before an innocent gets killed? How about those driving on Suspended License's that are placing the Public at risk? How about the uninsured that cause a wreck, but don't have anyway to pay reparations? How about the occasional criminal with warrents that gets caught? These so called minor infractions you quote many times open the door to a good bust. So let them do their job. If we all did ours, there would be a lot less crime, but the don't snitch mentallity hinders many investigations.

The 'problem' starts well before the police become involved.

You mad ‘Bro? I agree, about the moderation here. Moderator: Euphemism for someone with an agenda that supports the status quo.

They could care less about your "safety".....they just need an excuse to pull you over to search your car and try to get as much money out of your pocket as possible. Its a legal scam.
