Okay, I'll copy and paste my facebook status. At least it'll be something to yap about, I guess...

An incident happened a while ago that somehow appears to me as one of those, "oh hell, this is a sign, or something..." scenarios.

Earlier, I found laying atop a Herald-News rack an entire Herald-News that looked like someone bought it and sat the thing on top of the machine. Although it had rained quite a bit today, the newspaper wasn't wet. As I placed my Mo-Mo to-go order (great BBQ btw) I walked over and glanced down at the newspaper and saw the words..."Graysville approves Speed Cameras". Those words, my friends caught my attention. Again, those that know me know my direct opposition to "red light cameras". To make a long story short, I will never pay a camera ticket, period. Whatever these Graysville decision/policy makers are doing, fine, just will not happen to me. What everyone else does is their business. Just saying what I'd do, or not do in this case. It would almost be worth getting a ticket to prove a point. However, they say high blood pressure is a result of climbing those mountains of MOLEHILLS.

Folks, what we have now in Graysville is essentially RED LIGHT cameras in a town with no red lights. They can call them "Mobile Photo Enforcement" cameras if they want to but either way, they rely upon case law essentially governing "traffic cameras" in general. This is not rocket science. We have a CHIEF a LT. a SGT or two and a police department that is somehow trying to function as the NYPD. My God, Graysville absolutely has no tax base, virtually none. Sorry if that stings but show me the businesses, show me a red light. Show me the legality of this "mobile photo crap". Some semi-educated person may offer up what it feel like to blow out 50 grand defending the indefensable. Who knows. Next thing you know you will need a Graysville issued ID and have papers just to get in or out of that place.

Each of these commissioners should REPEAL and resend their votes BEFORE the ink is dry on that "contract" they signed on behalf of the Graysville Residents and have the city attorney file for a complete remission of any contract signed if the PRIVATE company argues.

Then again, I suppose this doesn't concern me. So easy to say, isn't it?

Anyway, I picked up the newspaper and took it along with my Mo-Mo BBQ order of food (good btw) and came home. Once I walked in the door Kim instantly asked me, "oh lord, what's wrong". She knows me really good :)

Any of you peeps that get a ticket from this Graysville "government organized camera gig" please feel free to let me know.

I read this in the newspaper and from what I take from it you will have a graysville cop off duty sitting in a regular car getting paid by the city by the hour. He will be sitting in his regular vehicle off duty and will photo video record you for speeding and somehow you will be issued a ticket in the mail for $50. Graysville will pay the wages for this off duty cop and the company will reimburse the town and take half the ticket money. If the ticket is 50 then the town gets 25 for there cut. So for the private company and the town to even make any money for the town as the chief said it would then the off duty cop would need to at least write 1 ticket per hour. Subtracting the hourly wage from the 25 then only a few dollars is actually made. I think the cops would target that little section of highway they annexed and target people that are not graysville residents which will keep those people quite. Sounds like a nice money making scam to me.

If I read the article correctly, when the video camera is operation, there will be a sign warning you of what lies ahead, and there will also be another sign posting your current speed, all before you get to the camera.

If we all just obeyed the law we wouldn't need police at all and they would be out of business. Same concept.
