Saw this WAFB TV story out of Baton Rouge, La. linked over at The Dead Pelican. It's about the City of Baton Rouge wanting to place red-light cameras at busy intersections. The report states that the cameras will take pictures of license plates of red-light runners and the OWNER will receive a ticket. The owner? What if the owner isn't the one running the light. And what scares me is this portion of the story:
What may come as a surprise is that no Baton Rouge drivers we spoke with are against such a plan.
"It only takes a minute for a light to change and someone can get killed because you don't want to wait a minute," said Maretta Jackson.
Bob Moreano told WAFB 9 News, "Put (in) the cameras, and if it has to be me, then you know what, eh, I violated the law. I gotta pay like everybody else."
Yeah, Baton Rouge and other lawless cities ... bring in the cameras ... put us all under surveillance. We'll be good slaves!!! We promise!!!
