Before he's even received the passed moratorium on his scam-era system, The Almighty Alcalde is telling 770 KKOB that he believes that the scam-vans are important because the stop speeders in school zones saying "if you speed through school zones you ought to get a ticket."
We couldn't agree more, except that the scam-vans are not about punishing evil-doers, it's about making money for Marty to balance the budget with (among other things). It's not like these vans are being used exclusively for school zone enforcement; just ask the 1306 freeway scam-era citation recipients from June 19th.
More importantly, be afraid... be VERY afraid when a politician who's on the ropes, running for senate, and desperate to save an unpopular yet lucrative program starts talking about children. They're usually using the poor unsuspecting innocents to hide something and distract you long enough to change the subject.
You watch; Marty will veto the council bill claiming that he just couldn't allow our children to be in danger without these scam-vans. Meanwhile, he's holding those very children for ransom and getting paid one Redflex citation at a time.
