Top comment on YT:

 

Breaking into the wrong house = paid administrative leave.

Hitting a bystander = paid administrative leave.

Killing someone's pet in cold blood = paid administrative leave.

Not making enough arrests = FIRED.

Ah, that's fine then. Perfectly justified, they've been around for a long time.

Tickets essentially help fund the municipal governments they are paid in. And lets be honest, there are more then enough rule breakers out there to fill your quota.

The trick is NOT picking on innocent people to fill said quota.

PS3 had better deals. Now X1 priced dropped in UK, has constant sales and free game giveaways. PS4....raised prices in Canada. ;)

So the cops should decide people are innocent or guilty, than proceed to ticket them to fill the coffers of the government? sounds like equal treatment

Federal law says quotas are illegal. State law might have discrepancies on how they enable a quota by calling it different things. Conservatively speaking, it is the state's right to make the call, n'est pas?

You use your judgement and act accordingly.

Picking on someone who is driving slightly over the limit to make your quota, that I don't agree with.

It's impossible to not pick on innocent people. You watched the video, right? They were having quotas that exceeded the population of Auburn.

Also, it's pretty much impossible to be innocent. A police car can follow you for a couple of blocks, and you WILL break some kind of traffic violation, probably without realising 1. That's the way the laws are structured. You also, on average, break 3 federal laws a day in your financial dealings (not including state or local) 2, and just about every person is guilty of incorrect tax filings 3.

Small businesses also have to deal with contradictory regulations: one federal regulation dictates that floors must be kept clean in kitchens, and washed at least three times a day, another regulation states that floors must be kept dry at all times, for employee safety. Whether or not your breaking the law, depends on which agency is knocking on your door that day. 4
