Yeah, it’s real | “Black teenagers experience daily racial discrimination — most often online—that can lead to negative mental health effects, a study finds.” – Futurity.org

Money driven | “Exeter Twp. accused of pressuring cops to issue tickets, age discrimination, and retaliation. This is why they CANNOT be given radar guns. Money is too much of a corrupting force. Low speed limits, short yellow lights, and stop signs on every block make this happen. Proper engineering, only ticketing the really bad drivers, and making tickets only points would help. Take the money out. Radar is on the PA House calendar now, as SB 607. This is ALL about the money. No 85th percentile speed limits in this bill.  As the above shows, giving the munis radar surely would be abused. The money is too much to ignore.” – email news release
