Drive the speed limit and problem solved. It is not rocket science.
Will people driving the speed limit be run off the road by those who try to advoid the Cornersville Cops going the wrong way out of the rest area chasing speeders?

Is it called a speed traps or just shake downs of out of state motorests who can't or won't come back to fight those tickets in Court?

How many have stopped buying anything in Cornersville or even going through that town just because of those speed traps on the I-65 interstate?

Do when any local city officials run a town that way to pray on out of state motorests they for sure run those towns business away?

Just stay away from Cornersville and let the rest of the businesses dry up. Then maybe the good folks living there will speak up against the insanity. Policing to just run a courthouse and city hall that is ten times bigger that the city will keep the community in the shape it's in.

Great comparison brainiac. NOT! This is not a police state or even close to it. Just obey the simple laws we have and you won't have to worry about the police. What they are doing always has to be within their jurisdiction.
If you read the article it is clear, Rep. Billy Spivey is against it, Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security on Tuesday approved Cornersville's application for interstate authority in I-65's one-mile section, Nov. 28, CPD Chief Todd Bone sought renewal of the authority. Jan. 4, THP Col. Tracy Trott replied: I-65 between Exits 22 and 27 isn't in the town, so renewal was DENIED.
So between Spivey and the State of Tennessee, it would be unwise for the city to get caught writing tickets outside their jurisdiction. I you see them speed checking outside their jurisdiction, report it to Rep. Spivey.
Believe me, I will and so will anyone else. He is the one that exposed they have been outside their jurisdiction for years. That suit will soon hit the courts and the lies exposed then. You will have to defend your lies then. Bottom line is it's wrong to be there, miles away from the people they serve, to just take money to fatten the city hall budget and pay. WRONG IS WRONG! The jurisdiction didn't change. It just had to be spelled out to them because they have been outside them the whole time. I bet there never has been a ticket inside the city limits on 65. I cant wait to see the whole scam hit the courts and the crooks and lies forced to pay up. Poor folks trying to operate at exit 22 are suffering because people on 65 wont stop with Barney and Andy shaking everybody down.

And for your information, officer, I am not worried about the cops. I just hate to see them shaking down people they have no jurisdiction over. That's why the mention was made of a police state. That's how they start. Simple over-stepping of bounds and tell the public lies that it is to help them. LIES! It's to grab money. Nothing more. Nothing less. If it were to slow people down they do that by just sitting there. You never have to write a ticket to get people to hit the brakes. It's not benevolence. It's extortion!

Sad part is the citizens have drank the kool aid lies those pin heads have sold. Fact is, get off the interstate (which will lessen the court load), police what the citizens can afford, get the salaries and number of employees what they should be, the taxes won't have to be raised for the fat city hall. Then businesses will thrive and sales tax revenue will go up. Much better than shaking down people passing through. The city manager is finishing off the town after the last one got it started.

Wonder if it was explained do Cornersville Police set at the bottom of that I-65 hill in the upper end of a on coming rest area trafic, shooting radar, facing on coming 70 mile hour south bound on coming trafic and pull out into on coming 70 milies per hour trafic crossing 2 lines of trafic to give chase of speeders coming down a I-65 hill just below a blind curve?
For is it not a danger to the police themselves and unsuppecting traveling public, that is the city of Cornersville creating a danger to others who are not even speeding? If they pull into on coming south bound 70 mile per hour trafic from a dead stop?
Will some day there be a major wreck because of how that speed trap or radar is set up?
Why is that polic car not facing south to go with the flow of trafic, rather than north pulling out into 70 milies per hour south bound trafic?
Does Small Town Aggressive Radar

2. Hurts Small Town Business
Just ask the tourist and truck drivers if some are now not stopping at exit 22 or anywhere in the State of Tennessee to gas up, eat or rest just because of small towns aggressive police radar traps, and police looking for to give out tickets?
Who would want to travel through Tennessee much less stop there if ever small town was allowed to play Boss Hogs, and his gangs? Running radar traps on every down hill and blind curve on I-65 when the main parts of those towns were miles from, and not even a red light or town building close to those Down Hill Traps?
So how can any small town's police, police speed limits that were not set by those towns themselves?
Why don't every small town from the KY line to the Ala line get its revenue off I-65 and see how many people from the North, South, East , West travel or even stop in Tennessee?

How much business would those small towns and the State of Tennessee lose in gas sales, food, hotels and other revenues?
How many have heard people from Giles County, Lincoln, Marshall County, Ala and others say they Don't even go through Cornersville any more, just because of that town’s aggressive police, radar traps, how that town is allowed to operative what looks like to them Boss Hog and his Gang ways of running that Town?

The residents of Cornersville are not bothered by any of this. If they were, they would have made themselves heard long ago at the polls and at city hall. When it comes to playing Robin Hood, the people of Cornersville are every bit as guilty as the town's leaders. The state legislature should mercy-kill Cornersville by revoking its charter and making it an unincorporated area. If Representative Spivey wants to put an end to these shenanigans, that would be the best route to take. The city doesn't provide any services that would be missed. The only thing that would be required would be for the sheriff to start answering calls in the area, and those are incredibly rare. The only function the Cornersville city government fulfills is robbing people on the roads.

We, as citizens of Cornersvile, have been lied to about the reason for being out there policing. I am disgusted. Now we should all write letters to city hall and copy Rep. Spivey and let our disappointment be known. The state should stop letting extortion rings be operated by podunk city halls to generate revenue for inflated salaries and police forces.

You moron. Have you read one single complaint on here from anyone getting a ticket? Speeding? Cops? I'll save you some reading. No, there is no one complaining because they got a ticket.

The complaint is a city overstepping its boundaries and extorting money from folks to raise their own salaries.

Pay the tickets you want, speed all you want. All we want is for the cops that pull you over to be the ones that have jurisdiction. Not some podunk city court with fat salaries and big government ideas being forced on people passing by miles away.

Pay attention to the point officer.

Look at this audit. The chart for revenue shows that fines and fees are the biggest source of income the city has.\\\\
The next chart,expenses, shows the only expenses they have is government and police. That means they are only policing interstate to pay themselves.
Do away with the police patrol, you won't need that fat court system and city hall salaries, police force is too big, and the property tax won't go up a penny because there are no services provided by Cornersville except government you then won't need. Wake up citizens. Brangenburg (sp?) stole from you and hid it form you. This guy is doing it, telling you about it and you are doing nothing about it. Ask the mayor and manager why there is no business left in the city, why only the salaries of the employees are inflated while taxpayers are depressed. Take action now folks. Make them answer the questions now. Time for an old fashioned town hall meeting and I would ask them to show up and anyone else that might be able to do something about it.
Well said! Cornersville is totally mismanaged. They need to cut police force in half and get rid of one person in city hall.Get rid of public works guy too. Crazy! Town has grown very little and they have three times the employees they had ten years ago, also no water/sewer dept to manage and maintain but still more employees??
