Here in New Mexico, this is kind of how we deal with speed traps. This is a guy taking care of a photo enforcement vehicle they park all around Santa Fe here.
Gunman in nightshirt blasts speed van: Video
SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) - The shooter dressed in a flowing nightshirt who opened fire on a Santa Fe, N.M., speed-enforcement van in the middle of the night likely won’t get away with it because the van’s video camera recorded the entire episode.
Last week the gunman shot up the speed van while parked on Bishop’s Lodge Road near Fort Marcy Park in Santa Fe.
“He walks toward the speed van and he actually begins to fire rounds into the windshield and toward the top portion of the vehicle,” said Santa Fe Police Capt. Aric Wheeler.
The man fired off five bullets from a revolver.
He may not have put much thought into his outfit. He was barefoot and wearing only a night shirt, but police said knew exactly what he wanted to do.
Officers got their first look at the video Friday, too.
“I didn’t expect somebody to be slowly, methodically walking up and taking shots at the vehicle,” Wheeler said.
They did catch the guy later but IMO... he's a goddamn hero fighting facism. Photo enforcement vans here are actually just a private company out of Pheonix, AZ who paint their vehicles the same exact paint scheme as the local police (but their plates are private... not government plates) and then park the vans in blatantly obvious speed trap zone... (like a really wide five lane road that is marked 35mph or where the speed changes on an open road for no apparent reason) then that private company uses the government database to track down your address from your license plate and then split the proceeds with the city.
Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.
