This article below was posted on wcco minneapolis on dec. 6th. It says how the state citation payment service via telephone has reached its 1 millionth call since 2009! Instead of questioning things like, why are so many tickets given out, how many of these “crimes” are victimless (which I’m guessing almost all are because they are no appearance tickets you pay on this phone line) they praise as a “cost saving service”, huh? This article is just another example of how the state generates revenue to pay more cops to hand out more tickets to build more revenue, vicious cycle. Hey if my livelyhood depended on stealing money from hardworking citizens I’m supposed to protect in order get paid more, I guess they don’t have a choice, right?
