Fascist Washington DC Police Chief Calls Ticket Avoiders Cowards

The Fascist Cathy Lanier said people who use their iPhones to track check points, radar traps and traffic cameras: "the technology is a "cowardly tactic" and "people who overly rely on those and break the law anyway are going to get caught" in one way or another".

Of course this is the same dim wit that opposes the second amendment and this is the same police force that took 7+ years to find the alleged killer of Chandra Levy.

How about people are tired of paying your oppressive doughnut tax, Cathy? It's an educated public trying to adapt to negative market forces. Speed traps and the such are really ways to generate income. So what quotas do you issue to your officers? May be it is something in the drinking water, or the proximity to all the power robbing and self-serving politicians in the capital as Baltimore Police like to arrest people for asking directions. Is Natalie Preston your protegé?

Thank you for reading this blog.

Oppressive donut tax--that's funny. I like your take on it. I know I am tired of hearing that cops must meet monthly quotas, which means they are looking to pull you over. I don't see how that is necessarily fair since there is obviously pressure on them to meet numbers just like salesmen must meet each month.

25 years ago I dated a NYC cop. She told me that every morning when they had roll call, the sergeant would tell then exactly how many tickets of each type to write, in other words, 7 speeding tickets, 10 stop signs, 20 parking tickets, etc. If they didn't do it, they'd find themselves in the worst part of the precinct in a motor scooter or on foot instead of in a patrol car. Any police officer that says cops don't get quotas is at best only talking for themselves. What is egregious about this is that it is a priori: It's assumed that someone is guilty so lets pin the tail on the donkey. It's all about the money.

Ahh... The "cowardice" of avoiding police attempts at extortion versus the "bravery" involved in installing hidden cameras.

What douchebags.

Well, Chuck, the next step is FLIR used to peek inside places to find crime...Oops, they already do that. Well, I am sure they will come up with something more intrusive. It's amazing how many cameras are out there and my favorite line of the neo-con boot lickers are "well, I am not doing anything wrong, so what do I have to worry about". Guess again. I am sure all of us that post on LR and such sites as well as our own are tracked by the Obamadministration. Then using the high technology is a matter of which type. Thanks for posting. The shame of it is that I sure there are a lot of good people that are cops, but they are just tools for those at the top who use them for political ends.
