Yeah, they got burned on the red-light camera scam. Spent a bunch of money on them with promises of big revenue. The revenue is a fraction of what they expected, but they're on the hook to the camera company for 50% of the forcast revenue.

Thomas Jefferson wrote that the 1st Amendment erected a "wall of separation" between the church and the state (James Madison said it "drew a line," but it is Jefferson's term that sticks with us today). The phrase is commonly thought to mean that the government should not establish, support, or otherwise involve itself in any religion.

Its.......A FACT!

+1. The militarization of America's police is the biggest problem that nobody seems to care about.
