Automated Ticketing: Exactly Like Rape

I didn’t have any hope for Tucker Carlson’s conservative HuffPost, but I could hardly have imagined it would trivialize rape in its very first day of existence.

Legalized rape. What’s that you say? Rape isn’t sanctioned in this country? Then you must not live in a city with red-light or speed cameras, where it happens every day. Forget for a second that in one-fourth of all automated ticket cases, the ticketed  car owner wasn’t the one actually driving the vehicle at the time of the infraction (what other crime-fighting technology do we consider reliable that nabs the wrong person 25 percent of the time?) Just as heinous is that every year, more and more municipal governments pretend that they plant these all-seeing menaces in the interest of “safety.” Yet every year, their revenues tend to  increase from the very same technology. Meaning that the only deterrent effect the technology has is deterring your government from being honest about raping its own citizenry. If you’re going to slide me a roofie, Government, at least take me to dinner and a movie first.

Yes, automated ticketing: exactly like rape, says douchey male writer. Oh and ha ha he called Rachel Maddow mannish. I can’t wait for Matt Labash’s next column about how stupid whores and the faggots that support them can’t take a joke. This is a wit that won’t quit!
