Dahnkster: Selective enforcement at best, knowingly trying to suppress free speech much more likely. When these private stoplight camera companies approach city councils and commissioners, they KNOW they would NEVER get approval if the matter was left up to voters. Instead their tactic has always been to bribe and schmooze local politicians with the promise of yet another stream of revenues to separate citizens from their money.  This is EXACTLY the kind of shiat that these politicians HATE. Informing the public that they can make the cameras go away is REALLY frowned upon. Most all voters are lazy and unwilling to get involved. When somebody is willing to put out the effort and fight city hall, don't expect city hall to just roll over. I fought a law in Destin Florida that would have placed Waste Management Garbage services on the municipal tax rolls by means of an ad valorem tax. I had to go door to door to collect signatures and get the matter placed on the ballot. Waste Management hired a county commissioner as their 'political liaison' for a salary of over $100K per year to attempt this same tactic in several local cities. They also invited city council members and their families to their Orlando Recycling Center. (In other words, FREE vacation to Disneyworld for a week). They also hosted huge expensive parties and luncheons where council members were given invites.  I received no help from the press and had to jump through hoops to overcome the  mountain of red tape the council placed in my way. I had to threaten subpoena to get access to emails and private meetings between city manager and Waste Management employees. Two other companies offered lower contract proposals to city, but were never even considered for garbage service. This is EXACTLY the same shiat that ALEC and Chambers of Commerce pull each and every day. Then they get Barney Fife to arrest the people working to make a difference to changing the status quo. Sitting around protesting does nothing to elicit c ...

You all make jokes, but I'm glad this guy was arrested. He should have been tazed.  Clearly he was presenting a traffic hazard, not to mention trying to steal from the citizens of the county by opposing lawful traffic light cameras.

I only wish he had decided to resist arrest so he could have been shot while escaping.  Bastard.

Nah, just farking with you. The cop's a douche.

"Other protestors across the street began heckling me for making a bad arrest," Officer Campbell wrote. "This information was added to show the demeanor of the group the arrested male was with."

Oh, whaaaah.

scottydoesntknow: feckingmorons: He was also convicted of jury tampering as he was giving stuff to jurors, but that is still on appeal.

Wait, is that the guy who was handing out leaflets informing potential jurors about jury nullification?

My favorite Depression Era story that is probably fake:  Poor guy is starving and steals a rich guy's cow.  Makes it to trail.  Jury comes up with:  Not Guilty, but he has to give the cow back.

Judge calls bullshiat, and tells them they can't do that.  Jury goes back to delibs.  Jury comes up with with:  Not Guilty, and he can keep the cow.

GoldSpider: I was under the impression that requiring citizens to be properly registered/licensed before they be allowed to exercise their constitutional rights was called "common sense".

Stop quoting our new hero Vladimir Putin.

That's what was said about those uppity folks in the south that used to do peaceful sit-ins.

I used to ride in the back of the bus with black people, when that was a thing.

Or, you know, maybe he wants to inform people of their rights, as is his right. But yeah, your uninformed opinion is probably right.
