Crackdown! Georgia Cops Issue 205 Tickets In 2.5 Hours. Threaten even more! (VIDEO)

“It never troubles the wolf, how many the sheep may be.” -Virgil

CHATHAM CO., GA –  Police officers in Chatham County, Georgia have been cracking down on motorists harder than ever, recently issuing over 205 tickets in just 2.5 hours. Authorities are threatening even more restrictive enforcement as the summer heats up.

GOHS Special Operations Division Director Powell Harrelson claims the public needs to learn their lesson.

“Unfortunately, we educate them by giving them a citation, and that usually gets their attention,” Harrelson said. “And when that gets their attention, it gets their neighbor’s attention, and they’re going to be talking about it at Walmart, and they’re going to be talking about it at the beauty store next week.” Harrelson added, “We’re going to be all over the place. You may see us at six in the morning one day, and you may see us at nine o’clock the next night.”

    Sounds like a police state to me. Does this really accomplish anything other than making the public lose all respect for the police?

    When the drug war turned law enforcement into a business rather than a public service we have all payed the price. End the war on drugs and all the incentives that promote growth over justice and we might stand a chance. If people know they are not going to get a green light to abuse people we will get people in law enforcement that really do want to help.

    I’ve become increasingly convinced that the traffic and drug laws are just tools to generate money for the city/county/state. Since the speed laws are not followed by most people, they can fine them at will. The blood alcohol level is so low a person who’s been out to dinner could blow over the limit, even though very few accidents are at the low end of the scale. Cars get confiscated and sold even before a trial for any evidence of drug use. Public safety is the excuse for the laws, but not how they are used.

    Lol. Yuh think? All traffic violations are unconstitutional. If there is no victim, there is no crime.
