Re: “Report says red-light cameras effective at reducing accidents, violations

I don't have a real big problem wit the red light camera's. It's clearly a money grab, but just don't run the light and they can't grab the money. As someone who drives in the city everyday, I am definately more conservative on deciding whether to "run the yellow".

However, I do have problems with how this is being operated.

1) City employees are allowed to run red lights if on city business. Why has no one commented on this? This is much more offensive than fining someone who has actually run a redlight.

2) If you get caught by the camera, you are assumed guitly until proven innocent, The only recourse is to go to court during the workday to fight the ticket. I have a big issue with this. I have recieved 1 red light ticket. The video evidence provided by the camera shows my car coming to a complete stop, sitting at the light during the entire red light, and then making a left turn after the light turns green.. I have to take time off work to fight this? These should go through a cursury review prior to issuing the ticket. I know this will cost some admin money, but it also avoid the economic loss of ne taking off work, taking more court time, and making everyone else wait longer in court.

If this is can be run better, just let it be. The city will get money from the guilty and the streets might be safer.

Re: “The D&C's new newsroom

A constitutional originalist: It is so frustrating that we have lost the most basic and reasonable ability to focus/debate on the important issues at hand. Do you want the presidents birth certificate as well? How about his marriage license and kindergarden attendance records? Persoanlly, I find it a travesty that we do not know who he sat with during lunch in high school! I have heard they are socialists, communists, and the founders of ISIS. Its a great medial coverup!

Instead of worring about the great media conspiracy and irrelevant "facts", why don't we debate issues with real facts and analysis.

Re: “The D&C's new newsroom

OK, lets think people!

To constituonal originalist: Thanks to god that our constituional originalists (those that actually wrote the constitution) were actually smart and forward thinking vs. those that claim to defend the constituon now. If yo don't like the current administation, you are free to focus on thier stances, accomplishements, or lack of accomplishments. I woudl like your boss to go back ane review your high school trnascripts and/or SAT scores and decide if you should remian employed.

Muzenews: Yes, it is sad what happens when old, comfortable insititutions wither and fall by the wayside. However, what is Gannet to do? Paper news is failing and hemmoraghing money. They have been passed by like pony express and rotary phones. everyone reading this (including you) are partially to blame. Would you prefer to give up your tablet or smart phone used to read this story and share this opinion? Should we ban the internet to save printed news? Dinosaur businesses waiting to long to react to technology disruption will fail (i.e. see Kodak as another example). Yes, it is a shame that good, talented people pay the price for this but anyone who has not seen this coming for at least the last decade has either in denial or not paying attention.
