    Seems the population is similar....
    For those who didn't know, "Last Man Standing" was a remake of Clint Eastwoods "A Fist Full of Dollars". Not really as good a movie either, IMHO.

    Not really suprising considering that Bill & Hillary were once Gov and 1st lady of the great state of Ar Kansas, as they pronounce it around here.

    There was a deal similar to this in KS that I heard about in law school. Small town cops funded everything with speed traps. They all got thrown out by the judge when the pressure came on from the state police investigation. The state revoked the cops' jurisdiction to write speeding tickets soon after or some crazy thing. Only state patrol could do it from then on. Nobody got shot though, as far as I know.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    Ya' think that this cop was under some pressure?

    He certainly made his point of disagreement known, now he'll be able to think about in for a long time while sitting in a small cubical.
    The guy was definitely a 'dufus'...pretty dumb.

    No judge throwing them out in this case, but that reminds me of one of my uncle's hissy fit when the State built I-95 and he had to start paying local taxes. His town had funded everything with speed traps on US 1 for years -- one of those places organizations like AAA warned about when you got a trip map from from somewhere up north through Virginia.

    BTW-- the scenes in the video clip, also remind be a a small town I was caught in once in the early '60s. The local officer hauled a bunch of servicemen heading back to base late Sunday night/early Monday morning into the JP. He required a bond for appearance. As a "service"/"convenience" to the servicemen returning with empty pockets his brother's pawn shop (w/ connecting doors to the JP's office) would pawn anything you had, including your spare tire.

    But only the police should have guns!
    And the JUDGE resigned? What about the officer with the itchy trigger?

    This really sounds like the judge had had enough of the town's attitude towards tickets (reading some of the other articles).

    It reminds me of an old army friend who had been training at a base near some small town. The local police preyed on them knowing they wouldn't be around long enough to protest much, using our enlisted men to boost their town coffers. He claimed his court case went about like:
    "You're charged with going 35 in a 35 zone with an inhibiting factor of darkness. How do you plead?"
    "Not guilty"
    *gavel bang* "Guilty. Pay the fine to the bailiff. Next case"

    Perhaps this judge was just finally pushing back on junk like this.

    We have a small town court that meets in an office once a month. In our case, I think the judge would be shooting the place up if something like this happened. The last election, nobody ran for judge. I wrote in the name of the long serving judge and he is back at it. The rule in our town is you have to find a replacement for your (almost)volunteer job, or keep it until you die.
