‘Speed trap’ sign lands Houston pedestrian in jail | Newswatch | a Chron.com blog

When did HPD become the Gestapo? I guess we no longer have the freedom of speech in this city. Hey mayor parker I know you're too busy pushing your gay agenda to care, but why don't you try cleaning up your crooked police force. I hope this lady sues the city of houston.

Great story to post. Unfortunately, ruined by your bigotry and hate.

Yes, Annisse Parker sure is pushing her gay agenda.

Because of her, I have lost 40 lbs, gotten man facials to make my face look nice, bought nicer clothes and now only go to bars where Michael Berry hangs out.

Oh, and my income went up about 25 percent.

As for the freedom of speech issue, it is against the law to do that. Did the cops overreact? Sure they did. But just as the cops have the right to not ticket the hottie in the convertible for going 90, they have the right to go overboard as they did in this case. Not saying it's right or wrong, but that's the way it is.

Perhaps a gay police chief would help alleviate these issues?

Has the mayor not used her office to push her gay agenda? It is NOT agaisnt the law to warn people about speed traps, maybe if we had a mayor who knew the laws to actually reign in her corrupt police force. But most people are too stupid or apathetic to care.

It IS illegal to interfere with a police officer's work. That's the issue.

This is why it is illegal to feed meters.

Again it is NOT illegal to warn people about speed traps, too bad most people in this country are just a bunch of sheep.

What part of "It is illegal to interfere with police business" is so hard to understand?

This is not a free speech issue.

First off, putting down the mayor based on her sexual preference is just wrong!

Second off, it is a crime to alert drivers to a speed trap or oncoming police officer. You can get a ticket for flashing your lights at other drivers after passing a speed trap on the highway and being out in the open with a sign saying 'speed trap' is just one of the stupidest things I have ever heard of. This lady obviously doesn't know the law very well. Law abidding citizens don't stand on the street with a sign saying 'speed trap!' That's like saying to bank robbers "Don't rob this bank; there are cops in it!!!"

Third, have a nice day.

What does a ruling in Florida have to do with Texas?

Flashing lights is one thing...but standing in the street with a sign? I guess it would be okay to warn people that are robbing a store to hurry up becase the police are coming too?
