I don't like being called a hillbilly or poor dumb fool. I also pay a pretty penny for my health insurance and work in the government!

If this were really about generating revenue, they wouldn't announce it beforehand They would simply be out there issuing tickets.

ya lets just harass the people that are trying to get to work everyday so that they can support thier families. How about the police concentrate on more important things like drug dealers or rapists or child abusers . If they are so concerned about our safety those are the people that they should be focused on.

How about everybody just quit complaining about the police doing their job. Simply allow more than the time you might need to get to where you're going, obey the speed limits, wear your seat belts, no cell calls/texts. I think those who generally think that the laws don't apply to them are the ones doing the most whining because they won't be able to possibly "get away" with it when law enforcement shows a greater presence.

The nice thing about Plainfield is that the rape and child abuse is so infrequent, the smug little citizens have time to complain about seatbelt enforcement. But if you know where all this rape and child abuse is occurring, by all means, lend them a hand.
