Default CameraFRAUD’s “Worst Person In the World”

Camera Fraud Article: CameraFRAUD’s “Worst Person In the World”

What do you call people who talk tough when it comes to a boycott over Arizona’s SB1070 but can’t seem to get enough of the stolen money they procure through automated ticketing?

The entire Los Angeles City Council.

Today we shamelessly borrow from MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann “Worst Persons” segment in nominating Councilman Richard Alarcon as the “Worst of the Worst” for his comments regarding the city’s contract with beseiged scam provider American Traffic Solutions:

Councilman Tom LaBonge strongly backed the LAPD, citing a report that there have been no deaths from red-light-running accidents at affected intersections since cameras were installed. Councilman Richard Alarcon warned that if the cameras were shutdown and someone was killed at one of those intersections, “the media would have a field day.

Of course, lets not let statistical fact get in the way of Alarcon waving the “safety” flag. From the same article:

The LAPD’s statistics show that about half of the 32 photo-enforced intersections have either had no change in accidents or an increase, said Councilwoman Janice Hahn.

Being as bold to make up a meaningless uncorrelated statistic such as “no deaths at red light camera intersections” while ignoring the data of their own police department showing that red light cameras have actually had a negative effect on safety is classic intellectual dishonesty.
