SPEED TRAP CRASHER!
For years in the state of Florida LEO's have been ticketing motorist who warn others of speed traps by flashing their high beams. This is despite the fact that flashing high beams to warn of speed traps is not illegal. A judge even issued a court order back in 2005 telling the Florida Highway Patrol to stop ticketing motorist for flashing high beams to warn of speed traps because it is a form of communication,thus it is an activity protected by the first amendment. Despite and in defiance of the court order FHP records show that over 10,000 citizens have been illegally cited for flashing their highbeams since 2005. As a result of this illegal behavior there is a class action lawsuit against the FHP,and other law enforcement agencies. Apparently the word has gotten out to LEO"S to stop illegally ticketing motorist for flashing their highbeams. Not taking the word of law enforcement P.R.O.'s I decided to go see if LEO's are still engaging in this illegal behavior for myself in what I call SPEED TRAP CRASHER! I was stopped by Officer Valerio of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. At first contact Officer Valerio is quick on his feet and does fine. However, when Officer Valerio returns after running my ID, things get a little sketchy.

Hampton Florida. The Most Corrupt Town In America.
Hampton the Most Corrupt Town in America http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/09/us/hampton-florida-corruption/ Hampton, Florida (CNN) -- How off-the-charts corrupt do you have to be to capture somebody's attention in the Sunshine State? You can lay claim to a 1,260-foot stretch of busy highway a mile outside of town and set up one of the nation's most notorious speed traps. You can use the ticket money to build up a mighty police force -- an officer for every 25 people in town -- and, residents say, let drugs run rampant while your cops sit out by the highway on lawn chairs, pointing radar guns at everybody who passes by. Of course, none of those things are illegal. But when you lose track of the money and the mayor gets caught up in an oxy-dealing sting, that's when the politicians at the state Capitol in Tallahassee take notice. Now they want this city gone, and the sooner the better. A state audit of Hampton's books, released last month, reads like a primer on municipal malfeasance. It found 31 instances in which local rules or state or federal laws were violated in ways large and small. Read the audit (PDF) Somewhere along the way, the place became more than just a speed trap. Some say the ticket money corrupted Hampton, making it the dirtiest little town in Florida. That's saying something, because Florida has seen enough civic shenanigans to lead the nation in federal corruption prosecutions and convictions, according to a watchdog organization called Integrity Florida. The group's 2012 study revealed that more than 1,760 of Florida's public officials had been convicted of corruption since 1976.
