what are you talking about?! what cities actually bought the cameras? as i clearly stated, they are run by private firms that paid for the whole system and installation.what cities installed and ran the system by themselves? what cities were you referring to in your statement?
Boca Raton may become the first city in southern Palm Beach County to install red-light traffic-enforcement cameras.

The City Council voted 3-2 on Tuesday to approve a contract with American Traffic Solutions, LLC to install and operate the cameras, with Council Members Susan Haynie and Anthony Majhess dissenting.

The city will pay $600,000 a year for eight cameras at five of its busiest intersections within 90 days, Assistant City Manager Mike Woika said.

Boca Raton expects to make $800,000 a year from the cameras.

All cities must approve the installation of these cameras; not all of them have.

pretty sure most of those folks on the 'draw' voted for Mitt.
Why would someone vote against their best interest to keep government entitlement programs? Wrong guess

If we think of states as voters -- and they are in presidential elections due to the Electoral College -- then the Moocher Myth is backward. Starting with the 2000 election, the states that have benefited the most from federal spending have voted Republican.
We have shown repeatedly that the payments to the states involve more than entitlement payments and you are lacking in excuses for repeating this.

I guess. I doubt they were involved the first couple of days.
The FBI got involved on August 11, when they opened their "parallel civil rights investigation" into the incident, and Holder instructed the Justice Department's staff to monitor the developments. It wasn't until August 13 that US Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Richard G. Callahan announced a civil rights investigation into the case.
my original entry onto this topic was when someone said the feds were involved when they clearly were not...

<quoted text>You misread her post__the cameras are approved by the municipalities and then the $ are shared on some predetermined split.
There is a cost to the communities insofar as installation, maintenance of traffic, enforcement etc. etc.
The cameras are not worth the hassle in most places they've been installed and some states, Ohio or instance are no longer enforcing the fines leaving the municipalities in a bind.
what is the cost to any city? show me that. again, all of the sytems i know were set up to be run by private companies that paid the cost of the hardware and installation and running of the system. the municipalities just got a cut of the profits.

show me where this wasn't the case, as you stated...

That's exactly what they are. They have been discovering that the cost of the cameras doesn't justify the revenue and the clogging up the courts with this nonsense. Smells of kickbacks to municipal governments; you know, those elections that have piddling turnouts of 15%? I don't understand why people don't seem to care about this and then they cry about stuff like this.
I'll probably just pay it, but I am against them, totally. In my case, it's not as if I ran a red light.
We have right turn on red here, but there may be a matter of if my tire was touching the line or something stupid like that. Seriously?
Again there are three lines in the road. Each line causes the camera to take a picture. The time it takes the wheel to cross all three lines calculates the speed of the vehicle. I have been told the car needs to be doing over 20 mph to trip the camera. The speed you were doing is on the ticket.

If Perry had vetoed funding for the "public integrity unit" without first threatening Ms. Lehmberg with that action in an attempt to coerce her to resign, he wouldn't find himself indicted on felony counts of abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant. This should knock him down a few pegs.
I don't think the penal code he was indicted (36.03) with will hold.

It looks like the influencing pertains to coercion to perform a specific favorable service or look the other way and do nothing.

The ethically challenged DA continues to show her poor judgment. Even Axelrod disagrees with her. Actually anyone with wits says this is a no go.

Here is the video again. It was an empty box that he put on the counter the cigars fell on the floor. He has them in his hand as he walks out the door. Why do you think the store clerk was trying to make him stop?
In my expert opinion__it seemed to me that Big Mike was trying to get a few cigars on credit and a different clerk, perhaps the store keeper said no at which time Mike grabbed the display box out of the first clerks hand causing some to spill on the floor. Those things are about 3 for a dollar so a handful is not a huge deal, except to the fkr that owns the store and gets screwed dozens of time every day.by brokazz mutts.
