Default DPS: “Critics’ Vocalness” led to Redflex Shooting

Camera Fraud Article: DPS: “Critics’ Vocalness” led to Redflex Shooting

TASTELESS: DPS' Lt. James Warriner

TASTELESS: DPS' Lt. James Warriner

Are you a critic of automated ticketing? Have you engaged in expressing disapproval of the State of Arizona’s lucrative photo enforcement boondoggle? Would you consider yourself a “vocal” citizen, expressing your opinions and views on a regular basis?

If you answered “yes” to these questions, Lt. James Warriner at the Department of Public Safety insists that YOU may have helped lead to last week’s deadly shooting of a Redflex van operator. The incredulous comments were made to the Associated Press when Warriner, a DPS PR lackey and photo radar apologist, tried in vain to use a senseless tragedy as political ammunition against those who dare oppose his department’s will:

“Because of (critics’) vocalness, you could almost say they’ve led to this, too - because of their protests, the encouragement of people to strike out,” he said.

During a press conference last week, Warriner blurted out that “photo enforcement [is] not going away,” ignoring the multiple 800-lb gorillas in the room including challenges in the form of citizens ballot efforts (that’s plural) and a smattering of bills introduced by frenzied state lawmakers trying rapidly to end or curtail automated ticketing.

Automated ticketing has never survived a public vote.

Memo to DPS: the “vocal criticism” of government you so loathe and fear is an established right in any true, free society. The lack of such public input would be indicative of at best a banana republic, or at worst a demoralized police state.

James: The gig is up. The Cameras are Coming Down. But by all means keep rearranging the deck chairs on that sinking boat you call Photo Enforcement.
