I guess with the thousands of hours of manpower wasted, they had to come up with something...

Chicken droppings say I.

Poor people would be naturally more likely to be unable to pay traffic fines, that is not racially dependent.

They need to show more than just "too many" minorities got tickets if they want to make something of this.

Local agency got tagged by ACLU, population was 10% black, but way more than 10% of tickets went to blacks. Was in all the local papers.

Trouble is, the city borders Detroit, and so traffic on the border between them is way more than 10% black because, you guessed it, Detroiters, population mostly black, drive on the main road between them, and into and out of the city. Who would have thunk that????!!!!

So the traffic does not reflect the 10% black demographics of the city that got called out in the press, thus tickets don't either.

But of course, the news media never publicizes their "DOH!!!" moments. They just never speak of it again when they end up looking foolish, as if it never happened.

He's got to come up with something to appease the mob.

So this is what my tax dollars are going towards? For one public department to attack another and pay out fees to lawyers?
