Thanks AGAIN to Tam for yet ANOTHER glimpse into the fucktardery that makes up this nation.
Specifically, the New Jersey state troopers.
Even if they are able to pull this off without people raising hell (because now that it's in the news, you can rest assured that people WILL raise hell), there's a serious flaw in the logic...the same flaw that makes people think that forgoing gasoline for ONE DAY will have any affect on gas prices. *laughs*
If you have a ticket blitz, then a slowdown, you're not "sticking it" to anyone...the blitz in May will likely make up for the deficit in June. Just like if you forego gasoline on May 15th (which is the date slated for the "protest" this year), people are going to make sure to fill up on the 14th or 16th to make up for it. Yeah, smooth move, smart guy. Way to stick it to "the man".
Also, if the troopers slow down too much in June, there might be a backlash on them for not doing their job correctly, in the form of, "Oh, so you did a great job last month, but all of a sudden you're not catching anyone? Losing your touch, eh? What's the matter? Do you need some time off? Maybe you should take a few weeks off without pay and see if you can't get your act together."
Well, if things worked the way they should, that's what would happen.
They'll probably just get a slap on the wrist and continue to act like assholes.
And other than piss people off, their vendetta really isn't going to do any good. So let's all have a cheer for our intelligent, responsible police force...especially those of you in South Jersey. Godspeed to you...though, not TOO much speed, apparently.
