This happened to my son

Article about NJ cop who is tired of being told to profile younger motorists to generate more revenue

My son was profiled by a NYS trooper when he first got his drivers’ license. Although my son had broken no laws, he was stopped by a trooper who accused him of using his cell phone while driving. After my son proved to the officer that he had not in fact used his cell phone, the officer changed his story and issued a ticket to my son anyway for failing to use his directional when changing lanes even though my son DID use his directional.

After reading this article, the whole event makes more sense. The police are being told by their superiors to “raise revenue” by targeting younger drivers who will be too intimidated by the police to challenge their false accusations.

Is this why we have police? To raise revenue? These people should be making license plates.
