I checked the story again, and if this quote is right:



"So this month, U.S. Chief District Court Judge Graham Mullen changed the law, allowing rangers to write speeders up a $500 ticket per offense on the spot."



This means a Judge, not an elected official change the punishment allowed by law. I thought a judge could interpret the law but not impose a law.

I might be spliting hairs, but it seams that a rich speeder could have this overturned. Buz get out there and get a ticket to save us all, you can fleece some Fallwell faithfull to pay for the attorney.

Here's a tip:



Put a giant chrome luggage rack on your bike. The cops won't even notice you. It's the pocket protector of motorcycledom. The cloak of invisibility.



You can be doing a stand-up 120 mph wheelie, and all the man will see is that luggage rack, glinting in the sun.



"Blink.Blink. Probably just goin' to pick up some groceries, Joe."



"I need a doughnut, Bill. Let's roll over to Winchells. See if they've got some of those double glaze crullers."



See? Because of the "Luggage Rack" effect, they didn't even see you. All they saw was a shiney-sparkley thing fly by, going way too fast, and it short-circuited their already overloaded senses.



I've got a few for sale, if anyone wants one.

I live in Cal where judges make new laws every day.



Rich? Me? The gov't took all my money.

You aren't splitting hairs. The Imperial Judiciary is a direct result of the inaction of cowardly State and Federal Legislatures which have bought into the fiction that only a judge can have an opinion on what the law intends or means. The refusal of these bodies to reign in the judiciary has resulted in totalitarian-like rule by these arrogant dictators in black robes.



He'll do this because the State Legislature doesn't have the b@lls to impeach his @ss.

If they'd left you with that money, you would just have spent it on exotic two-wheeled moto-porn, Buz.



The government is saving you from yourself!
