1/12/2011 South Carolina Legislature Takes Aim at Renegade Mayor
Ridgeland, South Carolina faces $2 million sanction from legislature for defying speed camera ban.
The mayor of a tiny town in South Carolina ignored a state law passed specifically to prevent automated speed traps on Interstate 95. Now powerful legislators want to make Ridgeland and its mayor, Gary W. Hodges, pay for setting up photo radar vans on the side of the road in defiance of clear legislative intent. Yesterday, Senate Transportation Committee Larry Grooms wasted no time, introducing a bill remedy the situation on the first meeting of the 119th session of the General Assembly.

It's headlines like that that causes people to go nuts and commit mass murder. Don't the people at this newspaper watch the news.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

This popular cop blogger has been following the Ridgeland traffic camera issue and is certainly not a fan of their tactics. Good reading and analysis.

Basically, Most of Ridgelands police budget comes from drug busts, etc on I-95. Otherwise, the town,emphasis, Town, would have a night watchman driving a golf cart
