For years the local media has carped about not being able to get arrest information from the police, but now the State Police have opened the flood gates and are releasing the names of every piddly ticket written...
In my youth the WDT used to print the names of traffic violators. They stopped for some reason, perhaps choosing to limit public shamings to DWI's of which there is no shortage.
The public must be humbled...not only by fines but by public humiliation...It is essential for a virtuous and orderly society.
Of course the list of tickets provides great insight into quotas.
