PROPAGANDA: DEAD TREE MEDIA TOUTS ILLEGAL KANSAS CITY RED LIGHT CAMERA SURVEILLANCE DATA!!!
Here's yet another sign that Kansas City dead tree media is working in the interests of local government rather than readers or residents of this cowtown.
MISSOURI HAS RULED TIME AND TIME AGAIN AGAINST ILLEGAL KANSAS CITY RED LIGHT CAMERAS AND NOW THE NEWSPAPER IS TOUTING DATA FROM THE ILLEGAL SYSTEM!!!
Yes, traffic is moving much more smoothly now that the red light cameras are off . . . Here's the Dead Tree Media headline that echoes ATS talking points:
Kansas City's red-light cameras show big uptick in red-light running
Of course Yael wants a Kansas City Red Light Camera revival despite rulings of Missouri courts:
Turn KC's red-light cameras back on
But instead . . .
KANSAS CITY RESIDENTS SHOULD ENCOURAGE CITY HALL TO TURN THE RED LIGHT SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS COMPLETELY OFF SO THAT THIS COMPANY DOESN'T KEEP LOBBYING FOR THEIR CONTRACT!!!
THIS ISN'T ABOUT SAFETY, IT'S ABOUT REVENUE AND KANSAS CITY DESPERATELY NEEDS RED LIGHT CAMERA CASH FOR THIS YEAR'S BUSTED BUDGET!!!
Don't take TKC's word for it . . . Go and ask anybody who has been the victim of this illegal transit surveillance system and see if they want the red light cameras turned back on . . .
Sadly, once again Kansas City is going to be forced to have this safety vs. surveillance debate when the reality is that it's MONEY and the lack thereof from the City's broke-ass budget that's really pushing this discussion to the forefront as politicos and pundits are all to eager to violate the rights of residents in order to justify their misguided priorities and rampant spending.
