Can you say “revenue generation”? No, I’m sorry, this is “catching dangerous criminals” (by first creating a dangerous situation so you can predictably label someone a criminal first).
Apparently the profession of police officer in America now amounts to little more than, well… What exactly is the word for this?
Entrapment much? Well, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…
Via The Free Thought Project:
Residents of a New Jersey town are disputing a recent trap that police set up for drivers this past Halloween. Last week, an undercover officer was dressed in a giant Donald Duck costume and paced back and forth on the sidewalk and street on a busy road.
Officers would then pull over drivers who failed to yield for the duck, and hit them with $230 traffic tickets. Police issued a whopping 130 tickets that day for a total take of $29,900.00.
