Covington, LA Police Give Drivers $100 Bills Instead Of Traffic Citations Thanks To ‘Secret Santa’

Ridiculous. Their job is to enforce the law, not arbitrarily punish or reward law-breaking based on whatever mood they’re in or PR message they’re trying to send. That’s the whim-based behaviour of dictators,  not public servants.

If parking offences are serious, don’t reward them. If they’re harmless and cute, as this silly campaign obviously implies, then why are they illegal at all?

These $100 bills are gifts from an “anonymous donor”, and I’m guessing his names are John and Q.

Are we all in kindergarten forever now?

    You know what?
    I’d much rather get a voucher for one free moving violation.
    Maybe even I could save them up, and through the magic of coupon-stacking, I could trade in in on a “free” DWI.
