Haha welcome to Killer City baby. Where the hype is thick and the bullshit roams. Nice place to live if you enjoy the business of screwing over people or being screwed over by people.

Enjoy! Keep it Frosty!

That article from KCTV5 sure leaves out a LOT of information. It implies she got a ticket from eye problems, but she initially got pulled over for speeding. Did any of the newsies think to check her story? Does the ticket say anything about the eye issue or is it just speeding. For the life of me I cannot believe that a cop would ask those questions, hear her answer about lasik and not cut a break and let her know she has to get that fixed. But, before that: I've literally never been asked nor heard about anyone else being asked about corrective sunglasses or contacts. Seems very improbable. My guess is there's probably a lot of attitude on the woman's part and the cop wasn't keen on it and did what he could to drive that point home.
