Are the cops trying to slow speeders down
Are they collecting revenue?
If they are trying to slow people down, then Mr. Goad is helping them.
If they feel he is not helping them, then they are nothing more than revenue collectors, trying to fleece the people.

“...and that attempting to get belligerent with a police officer might have some negative effects.”
....and yes the police have to understand that they are sworn to uphold the constitution, even the constitutional rights of “uppity pawnshop owners.” The police are in a hard place, but common sense and politeness to the taxpayers who pay their salary is still part of the job, even if one is a “reserve officer.”

Another reason for people not to trust the police and view them as an enemy.

I love that this guy’s name is “Goad.”
They left out the middle letter....”N” in his name!
Actually, Officer, Mr. Gonad does own the police department.

With the way cops are nowadays, that sounds like a death threat.
Every tax payer has a right to discuss with others how tax dollar being spent. If Mr. Goad wants to discuss a speed trap with other taxpayers, he can do so with a sign.

That is a pretty piece of kharma!
I'm not certain of the exact number of unmarked police cars in my county, but if even one of them followed me on my daily commute to and from work one day a month, I'm certain they could achieve their departments monthly ticket quota...that supposedly do not exist!
That big grey F250 riding a foot off my bumper at 45mph in a 45mph construction zone, 4 lane road, right hand lane, in the rain at rush hour traffic today...left lane clear...
yeah that aggressive driver needs an expensive wake up call ticket.

There is the problem. The officer should be fired immediately.
