Gone Fishing: These Cops Have Setup a Revenue Collection Trap Like No Other

This is the new frontier in revenue generation, they're doing the same all over "the land of the free," including here in The People's Republic of Maryland.

Of course, by encouraging pedestrians to walk out into traffic you're pushing people to risk their lives for no reason, but the point is revenue, so that's irrelevant. - Chris, InfoLib
A video uploaded to facebook Monday shows what low levels police will sink to in order to generate revenue.

The Somerville Police Department has devised an ingenious method for catching dangerous criminals.

It is against the law to enter a crosswalk while there is someone crossing the road.

Obviously a driver can drive through a crosswalk while simultaneously remaining cautious and being aware of pedestrians. But where would all this extra revenue come from?

Somerville police are using undercover crosswalkers to set up questionable traps at crosswalks throughout the town.

The undercover just walks back and forth in the crosswalk all day long, while the unit pulls over the unsuspecting “criminals” to issue a citation.

What do you think? Is this really protecting and serving?

68255 First of all, nobody says they are "criminals", traffic violation is not a crime. Second, yes, protecting pedestrians from the drivers who don't care to stop and yield to the pedestrian on the crosswalk, which is not unusual at all.

10842 A cops job is to protect and serve the STATE, and, uphold the STATE'S LAW. I don't know why people think cops are there to protect them. Cops tend to aid the middle-class, more so, than they do the poor, because the middle-class are the government's cash cows.

The officers in the video will probably be commended for this setup. Clearly, they've been paying attention to how their employer shakes down the citizenry.

10842 @68255, odd to see your kind here. Glenn Beck must be playing reruns.

68116 I would think that hiring someone to 'impede' traffic all day long would be a crime would it not?

75145 @10842, if you think the goal of this website is thoughtless bashing the police on every opportunity, maybe you are in a wrong place.

75145 @68116, careful (yes, the cop in the video is very careful every time he crosses the road) crossing the road using clearly marked crosswalk is impeding traffic?

10842 @75145, laws for pedestrians differ from state-to-state.

"if you think the goal of this website is thoughtless bashing the police on every opportunity, maybe you are in the wrong place." - @nonymous 75145

My contempt is for the government who legislates statutory laws, ("ideas," they call: "law"), not so-much the police; the reason I attributed their actions in this video, to their "employer." However, if you were referring to comment directed at @nonymous 68255....

Other than, the number: "68255," which isn't always a good indicator), there's nothing in his/her post, that suggest he/she is web police. My so-called "bashing," was in regard, to his/her programmed response. Perhaps, my response was a bit rude, by society's standards.... Albeit, what I truly wanted my post to convey, was the fact that anonymous 68255, doesn't own his/her own mind.
