If people wouldn't break the law there would be no need for such stops, but we are unable to control ourselves and follow a predefined set of general guidelines, hence the necessity to protect the law abiding public from law breakers. Good job BCSO!

Typical BCSO east moutain tactics...like runnubg radar @ 5:00a.m. with lights off. You'd think more citizens would be unhappy. Enforcement YES...ENTRAPMENT...NO!!! When I inquired if this was " Agency Policy?" I was told "no...it's just what we do".

When I called last time they wasted valuable assets on an afternoon sting....no-one from the DUI "Resource Center" to the East Mountain BCSO commander would accept a call, nor did they call back. Folks we have to remember...not about
enforcement...ALL ABOUT REVENUE ENHANCEMENT.

Oh...& by the way..( and have for many years )I hold a "virgin" CDL w/all endorsements...not even a parking ticket. I see on a daily basis how much ENFORCEMENT is NOT being done.
