NYC Government Starved Of Revenue, NYPD Ordered To Write Tickets
Regulating for Revenue
They need more tickets each day,
to pay the pension outlay.
And more rules, and more regs,
’til each citizen begs,
of his pay.
From the Libertarian Republic- Officers of the NYPD have been ordered to write summonses, with the government of NYC now denying all vacation or sick days until the police get back to their revenue collection schemes.
The lieutenant ordered sector cars from throughout the precinct to converge at Springfield Boulevard and Jamaica Avenue for a driver checkpoint, the officer said.
“To have all the manpower utilized for the sole purpose of writing summonses is a very dangerous way to utilize manpower,” he said. “This is not what we’re out here for.”
You’re wrong, officer. That is exactly what you’re out there for. With their millions of laws, you are out on the street risking your life to add to the emperor’s treasury. I wish it were otherwise, but the politicians have promises to keep. I also have sympathy for the naive police officers who thought they were on the street to protect the citizens from violent crime. Instead, the cops found out they are tax collectors.
Why should I thank a tax collector for his service?
