  • FHP Troopers Told To Write At Least 2 Citations Per Hour

    Florida Highway Patrol troopers have been told by a top official that they have to write more speeding tickets. FHP Major Mark Welch told troopers under his command in an email that “the patrol wants to see two citations each hour” during their shift. He added that the directive was not a quota. “The FHP’s top priority is saving lives on Florida’s roadways. To achieve this, FHP conducts education and enforcement efforts aimed at curbing dangerous driving behavior. The FHP absolutely does not establish quotas for its members, however, an interaction with an FHP Trooper, whether it is through a...

    You Tube video uploaded onto liveleak ^ | March 1, 2015 | The Free Thought Project
    Video has emerged showing a Newaygo County Sheriff deputy admitting his department breaks federal and state laws. Each Newaygo County Board of Commissioners meeting is recorded as a matter of record. The videos of the commissioners’ meetings are public domain. In the video, recorded in January, the Newaygo deputy knowingly admits to breaking federal and state laws that prohibit quota policies in police departments. Not only does he admit to breaking the law, but after he does so, the entire board of commissioners votes to enact his measure of breaking the law. According to the Michigan Vehicle Code, it is...
  • Dan Patrick handily wins over Van de Putte (Wise Latina Quota Queen)

    Voters handed control of the Texas Senate to its most conservative member Tuesday, punctuating the state's rightward shift by choosing Houston tea party darling Dan Patrick for the powerful post of lieutenant governor. The flamboyant radio show host, who was once considered too extreme for higher office even in deeply red Texas, scored a smaller victory than other statewide Republicans but still easily defeated fellow senator Leticia Van de Putte of San Antonio in a race that never became as competitive as Democrats hoped.
  • Red light cameras shut down: South SF downs devices four years after controversy over admin errors

    San Mateo Daily Journal ^ | September 10, 2014 | Angela Swartz
    After pleas to remove red light cameras back in 2010, they are finally coming down in South San Francisco. Although the South San Francisco City Council voted 4-1 back in March to not continue its red light camera program, the cameras didn’t become inoperable until early August. In 2010, the city fronted $1.5 million in refunds for the almost $500 tickets after an administrative error nullified tickets generated from cameras at two locations. The dismantling of the cameras should happen very shortly, said Mayor Karyl Matsumoto. Matsumoto was the one vote in favor of keeping the cameras.SnipI personally think they...

    San Francisco Examiner ^ | September 22, 2014 | Jessica Kwong
    Two San Francisco residents, one of whom is disabled, are furious with what they see as an unjust parking ticket, and they have taken their complaint to federal court. The lawsuit -- which was served Sept. 12 to The City, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and one of its citation review officers, and the Police Department, its chief and the officer who issued the citation -- claims the Feb. 16 parking ticket was unlawful. Although the fine has been greatly reduced, the plaintiffs have decided to press on with their complaint.

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- A new study by the University of Central Florida's Diversity and Ethics in Sport released Thursday shows that the top leadership positions at Football Bowl Subdivision schools and conferences remain mostly white and male. [...] Study author Richard Lapchick called those numbers "unacceptable" and said part of the problem with getting more diversity throughout the system falls on the lack of penalties or sanctions for institutions that aren't more diverse.
  • WSDOT wants to end white women quotas (Wash. DOT)

    SEATTLE — The Washington Transportation Department said small businesses owned by white women are winning enough state highway contracts and no longer need a quota. The department proposed this week to drop white women from the program that sets aside a percentage of contacts for ethnic minorities and women. The Seattle Times reported public hearings will be held in Seattle, Tacoma and Spokane in January before the plan is submitted to the Federal Highway Administration. By removing white women, the Transportation Department could reduce its goal for disadvantaged business enterprises from 16 to 12 percent.

    Michelle’s back, and she’s madder than ever. She was already pretty angry, seemingly unhappy with just about everything. As her husband wrapped up the Democratic nomination in 2008, she let fly her real feelings: “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country.” A few months into her job as first lady, her French counterpart asked how she liked the gig: “Don’t ask!” she reportedly spat. “It’s hell. I can’t stand it!” She even seems to be mad at her silver-tongued husband. When the two were to set off on a luxurious 10-day vacation to...

    A female juror in a high-profile American mafia murder trial was sentenced to indefinite jury duty after giving racist answers to a court questionnaire. The Asian woman in her 20s was asked along with hundreds of others to provide answers to the survey prior to serving on the jury for the trial of crime boss Vincent Basciano. But the woman enraged a Federal Court judge in New York by answering the question, 'Name three people you least admire', with the answer: 'African-Americans, Hispanics and Haitians.' When asked by a judge at Brooklyn Federal Court to explain her answer, she replied:...

    Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.’s obsession with racial grievance-mongering could get Americans burnt to a crisp in their own homes. That’s because his Justice Department is trying to force the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) to hire flunkies who got 70 percent wrong on a basic, fire-related multiple-choice, open-book test. The exam was used to screen applicants to the fire academy. More than 90 percent of black and Hispanic test-takers passed, which isn’t enough for liberals addicted to affirmative action. At Justice’s urging, federal district Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis threw out FDNY’s test results - blocking admittance to...

    Virginia Sen. Jim Webb called for ending government-run diversity programs in a newspaper column Friday, saying they have disadvantaged struggling whites and hurt the cause of racial harmony. Webb wrote an op-ed column in Friday’s Wall Street Journal that said a “plethora of government-enforced diversity policies have marginalized many white workers. The time has come to cease the false arguments and allow every American the benefit of a fair chance at the future.” Webb’s press secretary, Jessica Smith, said Friday that the senator felt the column speaks for itself and that he would not comment further. As an author, Webb...

    What one finds when reading congressional legislation is invariably surprising. Take the Dodd-Frank financial regulation bill, for instance, which was created by merging Senate and House bills. When the Senate returns from recess one of its first actions will be to vote on the bill, which passed the House on June 30. I was searching the bill for a provision about derivatives. What did I find but Section 342, which declares that race and gender employment ratios, if not quotas, must be observed by private financial institutions that do business with the government. In a major power grab, the new...

    Auburn, NY -- Three days before Christmas, Auburn Police Chief Gary Giannotta laid down the law for his command staff. At the closed meeting Dec. 22 in the department basement, Giannotta gave this ultimatum: Tell your patrol officers to write more vehicle and traffic tickets — at least one each per shift — or there will be repercussions for those who don’t.... Threatening to punish employees who fail to make a ticket quota violates state labor law. Tuesday, the Auburn police union took Giannotta to task for his proclamation, and two college criminal justice experts questioned the ethics of his...

    Canada's arts community is pondering another swell idea. The folks that brought you compulsory Canadian content on Canadian TV channels at night, and "Can-Con" on radio, are kicking around a new concept, according to a recent news story. Canadian filmgoers aren't going to art theaters and film festivals in large enough numbers to help the Canadian film industry. So, some in the industry are suggesting that one remedy would be to force your local multiplex to devote one or two screens to Canadian films.

    Reverse Discrimination By George Neumayr Published 3/12/2008 Left-wing paternalists regard themselves as architects of racial progress, guarding and guiding blacks along the path of success -- a role in which they assume to stand forever at the head of the march. But what happens when blacks overtake their enlightened white helpers? All hell breaks loose and the mask of progress drops to reveal the stricken faces of the white avant-garde . Geraldine Ferraro's remarks confirm that beneath left-wing paternalism lurks considerable racism. "If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position," she said to the Daily...

    A year after the city's racial quotas kept their daughter out of an elite public school, an Indian couple from Brooklyn is filing a class-action lawsuit to make sure it doesn't happen again to her or any child. "Children should be judged on the content of their character, not on the color of their skin," said Dr. Anjan Rau, the girl's dad, about the quotas at Mark Twain School in Coney Island. "The selection process should be colorblind," Rau said. For decades, the school has enforced racial double standards on its tests to maintain a 6-4 white-to-minority ratio to comply...
