Our local "speed trap" just got busted pocketing the money from tickets...

Unreal... This area almost ALWAYS has a speed trap running... On 75 in the Nati.

Arlington Heights Speed Trap History | Scott Sloan - Cincinnati Reds - 700WLW - THE BIG ONE

After this was aired, the radio guy was "visited" after his shift by a few "guys" who threatened to shut him up as police members have families to feed, according to what he is talking about now on 700wlw...

Conceal carry now being discussed as he has a permit but can't carry at his work... Even after being threatened while at work.


Crazy.

Small town with crooked government? Looks like they need to call the A-team.

Crazy.
That's crap. One more +1 for FL imo. While an employer in FL can prohibit CCW while at work, they can't interfere with you having it locked in your vehicle for access during off duty hours.

Then again, to me "concealed carry" means NOBODY knows you're carrying to begin with...

OP, your title is a bit misleading.

I just listened to the interview. The police officers were being used, unwittingly, as agents of theft....the I-team investigator even explained so. It was local, crooked, inbred politicians pocketing the money and cooking the books. If there were any police officials directly involved...then let 'em hang, for tarnishing the badge and public trust. But it doesn't sound it...sounds like the previous two chiefs had contacted the BCI/AG's office about the issue (which might be the reason they are now "previous" chiefs).

I have listened to 12 minutes of this and this is just down right dirty. I hope the guilty culprits get what is coming to them because they deserve every bit of it.

There is lots more...

The guy that aired this on 700 was "visited" by two thugs who told him something to the effect of officers have families to feed and he needs to shut up or something bad will happen to him. The obvious conjecture is they were police officers...

He almost quit his job over it, as he doesn't want to lose his life over a radio show...


This area of highway is a really dangerous place to run speed traps, as it is curving bridges and underpasses, and the cops are almost always there pulling people over (they look for out of town tags, I have heard).

Accidents are pretty common and the cause is often the speed trap or the officers pulling out in front of people. We have even had dump trucks go OFF the bridge because of it. Many fatalities... And yet it has gone on since I moved here in 94.

Here is the crux of the story written.

I-Team: Drivers pay up and put down Arlington Heights


Are there good cops, of course, but conversely there are also bad cops... My cousin is a sergeant with a local police department, and he does a great job.


Course, then we also have officers like Daniel Harless up in Canton, who was allowed to get away with unbelievable acts for YEARS...

Ohio CHL-holder files civil rights suit against Canton officer who threatened to execute him


And now in my town we literally have unmarked vehicles that take pictures of you speeding and mail you a ticket... And the company that sells the secret vehicles actually gets to keep part of the revenue they bring in in "fines"... So they are hidden all over the city, and moved daily...

there was a story about how a bunch of kids got their neighborhood to stop using speeding cameras. i think they have teachers they didn't like, so they find a car that is the same model as the ones owned by the teachers, and then put fake plates on those same models to purposefully speed past the cameras. the cameras were then no longer used due to that unreliability.

ah, here it is:

wow, that is pretty funny. Course, they could really throw the book at those kids too...

Here is the video of the radio guy being confronted after work... Someone had the presence of mind to video it. Clearly that realization from the bald guy caused the situation to neutralize.

wow, there's already a comment, "obviously fake."

i have half a mind to post "obviously one of the thugs in this video got a youtube account to try to dismiss this video by calling it fake." even if i'm wrong he would still be getting a taste of his own medicine.
