Tonijean613 there are plenty of people who call 911 and lie and many who say they can see a gun or that they are being pointed at them. The sad fact is we live in a society where not everyone has any life skills. People do.fly off the handle maybe even with a gun. However more commonly people haven't learned to be patient so when they learned saying gun means police arrive faster. With that said I won't go and say this did or did not happen. As I don't know either party I will say I find we all should work on getting others the ability to deal each other and also to learn a little common sense.

I'm not falling for any theories its more that I don't prefer to see camera pointing my way whenever I leave my house its too 1984 lol. I simply think the cameras cast too wide of a net without any human interaction. No questions asked no chance for an individual to be considered and maybe get a warning if its their first time. And pleading not guilty and going to court requires way more time, time off work and effort then talking with an officer at the time if you are pulled over for a mistake or in a emergency. This on top of the limited results and cost to the city, I just don't think a city our size needs these cameras.

The system pays at the start then once the area is used to the camera location revenue drops.... Good luck with making a contract that makes sense.... Of course I want responsible people to drive my car but I still do not want to be fined if someone else makes a bad choice or honest mistake.... And plate tracking technology in the cameras along with other cameras in the city can very easily plot your daily activity ..... Also have fun explaining your emergency to the court than paying their fines and surcharge anyway

Because long term studies do not show a reduction in injuries or fatalities and I have been reading about these systems costing more then they bring in with fines. Also private companies set up and run the systems while the local government pays for them and the tax payers end up on the losing end of a contract. Plus why should the owner of a car get fined if their friend family member borrows the car...what if you are rushing to the hospital stop and look both ways then go because of a life or death situation. Do we really want cameras and photos of every move we make ?

Yes skody54 I have the attitude that a loud noise complaint would be a non emergency and that riggi should call the non emergency line and deal with it through the proper channels like all the little people have to. I just read an about the police chief arresting an arsonist while investigating a shooting....so yea he has better stuff to do then listen to vince cry about loud noise.
