Councilwoman Pulled Over Going 105 MPH, Gets Let Off With Warning posted 02/29/2012, 3:35 PM (InformationLiberation)
[Category: Politics/Corruption]
Prince George's Councilwoman Karen Toles was pulled over for allegedly going 105 mph in a 55 mph zone, rather than getting 5 points (out of 8 before getting her license suspended) and a recommended fine of $530, she got let off with a warning.

Via WUSA9:
A police source tells 9News Now that Toles was traveling more 105 mph on the Capital Beltway when she was pulled over by police on February 22.

The traffic stop happened around Noon that day, near Branch Avenue, police said.

Toles was cited for an unsafe lane-change, a $90 fine and was given a warning for excessive speed, police said in a news release Tuesday.

Sources told 9News Now Toles was going almost 50 miles per hour faster than the posted speed limit when she was spotted by police.

"The issuance of a warning citation for the speed is consistent with the typical discretion applied by police officers to speeding motorists. The traffic violations were captured on the police officer's in-car camera, and the incident will be subject to command review. At the moment, the video is evidence in a pending District Court traffic case, and will not be released," police said in a news release.
The Councilwoman later issued a statement saying she was "late for an appointment."

Whoever said "crime doesn't pay" clearly never worked for the government.

It’s made very difficult to do, and the attempt can get you arrested. You will be intimidated and asked for your papers merely for asking for a form. This is where the state is closest to the people—the local police—and yet some people still think government is more responsive to the people than business.

Do you think that you are free?  Most Americans would still probably answer "yes" to that question, but is that really the case?  In the film Edge of Darkness, Mel Gibson stated that "everything is illegal in Massachusetts".  Well, the same could pretty much be said for the United States as a whole.  Our lives are governed by millions of laws, rules and regulations and more are being piled on all the time.  In fact, posted 02/29/2012, 3:35 PM (ZeroHedge)

The Dow has closed above 13,000 for the first time since 2008, and the mainstream media is declaring that a strong economic recovery is underway.  Barack Obama is telling anyone who will listen that his economic policies are a huge success, and U.S. consumers are piling up astounding amounts of new debt.  Unfortunately, this euphoria about the economy will be short-lived.  None of the long-term problems that are destroying the U.S. economy have been solved.  In fact, there are dozens of statisti...

WASHINGYON, DC—Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is blocking legislation from proceeding in the Senate that would escalate the failed war on drugs, distract law enforcement from dealing with violent crimes, and subject more nonviolent Americans to long prison sentences at taxpayer expense.

First of all, discount all the TV pictures of Iranian missiles being fired and troops marching in review. They are designed to boost civilian morale at home. Ironically, Western media has used them to trumpet Iran’s alleged military threat. One major US TV network, NBC, even has a fixed logo on its reports from Iran: "Iran T

Wouldn’t it be great to have a national debate between liberals and libertarians over whose philosophy and policies help the poor?

For decades liberals have claimed that the welfare-state/regulated-economy way of life helps the poor. That has been the major rationale for the statist way of life under which we have all been born and raised.

Libertarians, on the other hand, hold the exact opposite. We hold that economic statism is the very worst thing for the poor. Co
