    Overpaid, under performing, unionized, Professional Babysitters, spending their days as Tax Collectors, all the while a Corrupt out of Control Govt that employs them no longer has the consent of the Governed. Using “safety” is the same lame excuse that ALL tyrannical Govts eventually resort too.

    The terrorists now drive and fly CHP colors.

    This is what we get when the electorate votes and believes in Liberalism/Progressivism. To them this has a great benefit on the economy. The “Broken Glass” theory on Steroids.

    About 20K in fines brought in, about 50K in spending on Bureaucratic BS in Courts and Paperwork… Who needs productive capitalists when we have this???

    Don’t forget the 4-5 he let go cause they had a badge or a Govt license.
