It was a joke...

This is not the only time that TLC has asserted his/her opinion about OPD and I have addressed it before. OPD is small and have a lot on their plate. All you have to do is listen to their radio traffic. As I said to TLC before, I believe it was stemming from a car dealership break-in, no police department in this world can possibly stop every crime. This is why we have investigators. People who are speeding, driving without headlights on after dark, parked on sidewalks, running red lights, etc. are a big threat to the safety of us all and issuing tickets is a punishment for their inconsideration of the law. And, yes, OPD benefits from the revenue from that. Imagine if they were only investigating break-ins and letting all the scofflaws on the streets go. Then, there would be no OPD. Just like you and I, we have to work for our money. If I ever get a ticket for OPD because I was breaking the law, I would say "thanks" to the officer. That is because I deserved it. I do agree that the seat belt tickets are a little absurd since I cannot remember the last time I had to swerve out of the way of an unbelted driver. But even with that, they are able to identify much worse offenses, like DUI or Warrants. Things that would affect the safety of you and I and it will prevent future break-ins, etc. So, Mr. or Mrs. TLC. Open your mind and look at the big picture.

Good points, Erik! Unfortunately, our society prefers to blame the police whenever we do something wrong. It's as if it's THEIR fault because WE got caught doing something wrong. I'm not saying TLC thinks this way, I'm saying it's a general trend in our society recently. Also, people need to realize that the police don't get the money from the tickets they write. That money goes, I believe, into the General Fund of the Village to be shared with all Village departments.

And, if people would lock their cars and keep valuables out of plain view, then the police would be freed up as well. Or maybe if everyone would ensure that they had a valid DL before they went out to drive etcetera, etcetera. None of the theft crimes listed above would have been prevented unless an officer was standing right there. But, as I see it, in several cases my life as well as yours could have been saved by taking some of these scofflaws off the street. It is not just the OPD's responsibility to protect your merchandise and personal valuables from opportunists, citizens need to take ownership and protect themselves as well.
