Default Kansas City Robbery Botched

Camera Fraud Article: Kansas City Robbery Botched

Artists's rendition of a recent 1.7 million dollar heist. Suspects may be armed and up for re-election.


Stupid Criminals – Municipal authorities in Kansas City, MO have failed at a recent robbery attempt.


The city officials used red light cameras to extort over 1.7 million dollars out of their constituent’s pockets. The cost to install the cameras? 1.7 million dollars.


“The city expected more revenue,” said KMBC reporter Micheal Mahoney. “The program that was designed to make money for the city may end up costing [them] money.”


Proving there’s no honor among thieves, scam cam vendor American Traffic Solutions has pocketed most of the dough:


The city budget director, Troy Schulte, said that most of the income from the fines are going to the vendor, American Traffic Solutions.


No charges have been filed against Kansas City by Kansas City in the failed robbery, although over 3,000 people have decided to fight back by requesting a hearing. The unexpected battle took the attackers off-guard:


There are 3,000 cases waiting to be heard at the (Kansas City) Municipal Court, which means the (Kansas City) police need overtime workers to re-examine the red-light pictures.


Other recent failed ticketing robberies include beleaguered Redflex Group’s statewide Arizona effort.
