Traffic Cops = Revenue Generators

I was having thoughts along this line when I saw the county sheriff in our very tiny four corners town this morning. The sheriff or the state police years ago used to regularly hang out in an abandoned parking lot for a speed trap in this 25 mile per hour zone. Then for years they gave this up. They have only this summer started coming back again. When I saw them this morning I just thought "We do NOT need you here!" While they were gone, people may have more often gone up to 35 miles per hour or so, but no one blasted through town, everyone that I saw always slowed down from the 55 MPH zone, and no one was hurt or killed. They are generating revenue for themselves and harassing us, nothing else.
