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?
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
