Cop Speaks Out Against Photo Radar
 
<b>Camera Fraud Article: Cop Speaks Out Against Photo Radar</b><br/><br/><div class='snap_preview'><br /><p>Lets see what the ATS and Redflex lackeys have to say about <a href="http://www.suburbanchicagonews.com/napervillesun/news/mego/1623950,6_4_NA16_MEGOCOLUMN_S1-090616.article" target="_blank">this one</a>: <img class="alignright size-thumbnail wp-image-477" title="postit" src="http://camerafraud.files.wordpress.com/2008/11/postit.jpg?w=150&h=112" alt="postit" width="150" height="112" /></p>
<blockquote><p>Officer Mike Wasilewski, one of Naperville’s finest, writing with wife Althea Olson in this month’s lawofficer.com, put it beautifully:</p>
<p>“The ever-expanding use of cameras as a principal means of locating and citing traffic violators is ultimately harmful to the profession of law enforcement, diminishes public trust in governmental bodies, and fails to recognize potential long-term consequences in favor of short-term gains.”</p>
<p>They continue: “As Americans, a healthy distrust of government is part of our national DNA … We instinctively dislike the idea of cameras following us, recording us, reporting our actions to the authorities for punishment.”</p></blockquote>
<p>Officer Wasilewski is far from alone. Just in Arizona, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio have been vocal critics of automated ticketing. Wasilewski’s comments are reminescent of Babeu’s <a href="http://camerafraud.wordpress.com/2009/01/02/photo-radar-ticketing-ends-in-pinal-county/" target="_self">comments just a few months back</a>:</p>
<blockquote><p>I am against it, not only because I’m a strict Constitutionalist, but I believe… it’s driven to create money for the government. It’s corrupting law enforcement for us to be partnered with a private entity that creates revenue—clearly that’s their interest… I’ve never… seen a photo radar camera arrest a drunk driver or arrest a person with a warrant, see if someone has insurance, or to just simply give directions to somebody…</p></blockquote>
