Atlanta cops are waging one of the most ambitious revenue extraction campaigns in the world, nearly doubling the amount of tickets they wrote and revenue they collected over two years.
Park Atlanta wrote 141,000 tickets in 2010 and two years later, wrote 221,000, according to documents obtained by Channel 2 Action News. The city received thousands of dollars in ticket revenue, but Mayor Kasim Reed said money was not the motivation for the increase.
Police all over the nation are going on mad-dash ticketing sprees to extract revenue from a destitute population hesitant to fund their voracious appetite for never ending budget increases. Rather than "sacrifice" themselves to help the people claim to serve, police agencies have responded with hysterical fits, outright stealing through asset-forfeiture, and mass-ticketing blitzkriegs like this one and many others. In Rhode Island, police went on a mass ticketing blitz against the wards of councilmen who voted against giving them more taxpayer cash. A town in Oklahoma had to ban police outright from writing tickets because they were looting passers-through of obscene amounts of cash relative to their neighbors. If that's not enough, the next frontier in revenue collection is to have computers read your license plate and automatically send tickets to your home. Similar to the red light camera shakedown, it would be fully automated revenue extraction. As to the claim these ticketing schemes are about "safety," studies have shown speed limits have no positive effect on safety, only a negative effect to make the roads more dangerous if they're set too low. In towns where all the street signs are covered up, rather than chaos breaking out, traffic moves faster, and the road becomes safer.
