Well well, it seems the bangers in blue have a new twist on an old tactic. The next time you come up to a stop light, and panhandlers are around, you might want to double-check your seatbelt and put your phone down.

Nevada-Supreme-Court-b

Back in March, Nevada Supreme Court Justice James Hardesty warned state legislators that the NV Supreme Court coffers were bare, due to a drop in revenue from traffic tickets.

Cops: Eating Out The Substance Of Their Own Countrymen

jefferson on cops

Every government employee is morally suspect, this is true. Funded by violent expropriation (taxation), government workers add no net gain to society as they simply confiscate resources from one group to give to another.

Cops Generate Revenue

We have claimed on many occasions that the duty of police is rarely to serve and protect average citizens as much as it is to create fear, protect the rich and collect revenue. The going-ons of one small town in Colorado, where a single cop has written tickets earning 93% of the towns revenue, illustrate […]

A story out of Montreal Canada has two interesting angles. First being, that police officers decided to dress up like homeless people in order to catch people, who were texting while driving, not wearing seat belts, or committing other minor vehicle infractions (basically revenue generation at its finest).

The disproportionate targeting of African Americans by police has been a controversial issue for decades. While primarily relegated to the black community itself, the issue has been projected into the mainstream consciousness over the last year as more and more questionable police killings gain national attention.
