"911 … What is your emergency … ???

"[sobbing uncontrollably] … Somebody just came speeding through the school cross walk and ran over my little child … !!!"

"I'm sorry to hear that, Ma'am … But the police and courts have now been instructed by the community that they no longer want speeding laws enforced … So you are on your own … Tough luck … Oh … But if your child is now dead, our local police do provide a funeral escort to the cemetery … And if you wish, we can dispatch a fire truck to wash your child's blood off the pavement ..."

I also bet he was there because of complaints from the parents about speeding vehicles in a school zone.

If you watched the long version of the video you could see that there were no kids present to get run over. She can't endanger kids, that aren't there.

If the cop really wanted people to slow down in the school zone, he wouldn't be out there in an unmarked car. He would be there in a fully marked car with a light bar on top. Everybody would be slamming on their brakes the second they would see him. But the gutless coward cop was hiding in an unmarked car, because he didn't want people to slow down. He wanted to write out as many $600 tickets as possible. He was just doing what he was trained to do. Policing for profit. Police are nothing but revenue agents for the government.

And what would people learn? That they only have to slow down in a school zone when police are present?

It's very sad that no matter how legit a pull over is or action a cop may do he/she will never get through to people like you. You'll always find something to disagree with.

If a driver will slow down upon seeing a "marked police cruiser" at a marked school cross walk, (s)he can/should also slow down at a marked school cross walk

(duh)

But, really ???
Drivers should feel free to drive at any speed they like, run red lights, drive the wrong way on a one way street, etc., if and when there are no cops in sight ???

But quite apart from what that particular cop wanted on that certain day, the entire community wants -- DEMANDS -- that drivers slow down in a school zone, yes ??? That is why such things are codified in law, signs are posted, and COPS are specifically ORDERED to enforce those laws STRICTLY ...

Anybody who objects to such reasonable social contractual obligations is *free* to go live as a hermit on a deserted island somewhere AWAY from my children and grandchildren ...
