It's called "Law Enforcement", retard.
Retard, eh? That's a good one. Haven't heard it for a long time. Were you on
the debate team in school? Or maybe still are??
But back to what we were discussing. I say the proper term is "speed trap".
You say it's "law enforcement". While I agree that speed traps ARE a form of
law enforcement, that's too vague a term to concisely describe the specific
type of law enforcement. Surely you must have something better than that.
It's okay, I understand that you've painted yourself into a corner on this
one, giving me crap for using "speed trap" in the first place. And now
you've come to realize what the rest of us have known from the start, that
you don't actually have a legitimate argument.
Or maybe you misunderstood from the start. Maybe you thought I didn't
believe speed traps were a form of law enforcement, that they were instead
some type of scam endorsed by the government. If that's what you thought, it
would help explain your responses thus far: you telling me I'm playing a
"victim" role (victim of the scam); you telling me that it's called "law
Of course it's law enforcement. And of course the police have a duty to
enforce the law. I still think it's a shakedown racket, and I don't think
speed enforcement is the best way to make our roads safer. Traffic cops
should be cracking down on reckless and dangerous drivers, regardless of
speed. Writing speeding tickets is simply the easiest way for traffic cops
to enforce any of the traffic laws. They can sit there with a radar gun and
issue citations all day long. Does it make anyone safer? I truly doubt it.
Look up what happened in Montana after they imposed the national speed limit
and began enforcing it. Fatalities and accident rates went up, not down.
So yes, it is legitimate law enforcement, according to current laws, but
it's not an effective way to make highway travel safer.
Not a bad argument for a retard, eh?
