    Default Money, Money, Money! TN I-40

    This is whats going on with Tennessee law enforcement. Not to mention the TSA stops already in TN.

    This is beyond crazy, and I see both sides, but competing for the money or they lose their jobs? These people have lost their minds.

    Tennessee To Start ‘More Cops, More Stops' Campaign

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee is one of two states that get to test out a new federal plan to make the roads safer.
    The Tennessee Governor's Highway Safety Office is partnering with the U.S. Department of Transportation, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Tennessee law enforcement agencies for the plan.
    The new campaign, called "More Cops, More Stops", will work to reduce drunk driving, boost seat belt use, and crack down on speeding and distracted driving.
    Officers will target more roads by creating extra DUI check-points and beefing up staff. There will be extra officers on the roads patrolling through Thanksgiving.
    More details will be released at a press conference at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park. It starts at 1:00 p.m. Friday.
    Nearly one-third of those killed on Tennessee's highways during 2009 involved drunk drivers. Sixty percent of people killed in crashes in Tennessee during 2009 were not wearing their seatbelts.

    Well in the video, they are going to be taking large amounts of cash, period. Not citing for anything, just taking it, and you have to get legal counsel to get it back. Nothing illegal, they just want your money.

    Then they have cops who are fighting over different sections of road that are known to be good paying.

    This is how it was in the bad ol days of corruption and graft. Southern States in particular were hazardous...I guess the 'culture' has migrated all over.

    When the fate of so many rests in the hands of so few, can the failure to be accountable ever be forgiven?

    That's a pretty clear-cut case of corruption. The idea that anybody really supports a program like that is evidence that they just don't get it.

    "follow the money" - pretty much shows you how this works.
