If a Tree Falls in the Forest and Nobody Is There to See It…

Posted by PintofStout on December 21, 2007

…Can it still get a speeding ticket?  In the City of Cleveland the answer is yes.  In an increasing number of places cameras and remote detection systems are becoming more and more common.

The feeling of seeing the police car pull out behind you or pull a risky stunt-like, smokey u-turn in the road to follow behind you is a bad feeling, but at least you get to look the asshole in the eye (can a brown-eye have eyes?).  When you receive the ticket in the mail, on the other hand, the feeling is that much worse because there is no readily identifiable prick behind the act.  I recently had the anti-joy of experiencing “traffic safety” from afar compliments of the City of Cleveland – as if people needed any more reason not to go there.

The thought that there may now be less police on traffic duty is comforting, especially since I firmly believe them to be more of a hazard- even just sitting on the side of the road, accentuated by a parade of red lights from the sudden braking – than anything resembling helpful.  But the need for police personnel hasn’t diminished.  Like every other bastard agency of the pathetic philosophy of government, police forces are perpetually crying for more money.  So where are all these policemen needed?  Why at your local neighborhood random checkpoint, of course!  You know, those places these perversions of justice like to gather and bukkake all over our human dignity (nevermind rights) like spider monkeys.

Fuck them all.

    “bukkake”… nice. That would be a scrabble word, but I don’t think there are enough K’s in the game.

    Anyway, good vitriol on this one Pint.

    Merry Christmas.

  3. Apparently, I still need to listen to the master on the vitriol front!

  4. At least the police in Cleveland actually have some crimes to deal with (assuming they are on patrol and not at a random check point as mentioned above) – I got one of those tickets for daring to go over 25 mph on a street filled with 5 million dollar mansions in Bethesda…
