Former Alabama cop claims he was fired after blowing whistle on ticket quotas.

What, I thought everybody knew they had ticket quotas? It's just a money making operation.

Clearly you have a problem with police. They are not catching enough thieves in one thread, but you act as though they are the Gestapo in this one. I think you may be a bit misguided, however. What is dead and gone is a society that takes responsibility for its own actions. Society now wants to look to the government as the only source of the problem, but it just isn't that simple. People rely on the paternalistic paradigm to the point that all responsibility for one's actions become lost. Really, do we need to be told what size drink we can order (the bill nearly passed in New York)? The control the government has is the control we give them. Some of it is up to you, though. If you don't like tickets, slow down. Exercise the rights you have- vote, contact your congressman, file complaints; but take responsibility and be proactive. There is not yet a law against common sense or liberty of thought.

I have no problem with the police (the truth is the truth) and I don't speed. I'm probably the one everybody complains about driving to slow. I just read this on Fox news today and couldn't believe that people didn't know about tickets quotas. Duh Also I don't need anyone to help me, I have the means to protect my property while the government wants to take my gun away so I can't. A lot of people can't protect their stuff.

Police Fatally Shot 72-Year-Old Man in His Garage, Blame 'Poor Lighting'

Acquitted of rape in a clear case of his partner covering his ass.

Acquitted of the murder of his own wife. Reading the details, it is clear what happened.

The FBI has launched a criminal probe into a January incident where Tennessee police stripped a man naked, then kicked and beat him while he lay handcuffed in the snow.

The incident, recorded by a patrol car's dashboard camera, also reveals police repeatedly shocking the man, Darrin T. Ring, of New Johnsonville, Tenn., with a Taser and spraying him with pepper spray.

For nearly ten minutes, the video shows Ring writhing and screaming in pain as a gaggle of officers shout contradictory demands at him.

"If he even flinches, shoot his ass," one officer declares on the tape.

"Roll over on your belly!" another officer then yells.

I have a problem with the police as a whole. Respect me and I will respect you. The problem is that there are too many control freaks who are put behind a gun and badge.
