There he sits early in the morning, in his big white truck, illegally parked in front of a stop sign and a resident’s driveway at a street that intersects 2200 West, close to the west entrance of Salt Lake Community College.
Finding an easy target is not a challenge. With radar gun in hand and ticket book in pocket, he sits there idling — wasting gas — preying upon the unsuspecting, mostly poor, struggling students and other passersby.
For more than five months now, this peace officer has been writing several tickets per day, at least three times a week. Surely Taylorsville City doesn’t need this revenue, especially revenue that is generated from one of their own who is breaking the law by blocking a stop sign.
Maybe this officer should concentrate his energy on preventing real crime; we all would feel much safer.
