If It’s Not About Money – LewRockwell.com

If it gets people to “slow down,” isn’t that enough?

The fact is, cops hide behind bushes with their radar guns at the ready in order to make sure you don’t slow down – not before they can issue you a ticket, that is. In a very real sense, they want you to speed – so that they can catch you doing it and make you pay for having done it. Hence all the sneaking around. The unmarked cars. The cops riding incognito in big rigs. The artfully designed cut-outs along almost every Interstate designed specifically to obscure the presence of a cop from approaching traffic.

It it’s about safety, why do the cops hide in the bushes and play gotcha?

Why do they arrest the guys that warn oncoming motorists about a speed trap ahead?

Why do they make radar detectors illegal?
