Evolution of a ticket (or one of many reasons I hate the police…and sheriff). 5/1/13 Fat pig and Sheriff Heier pulls me over at a crowded stop light at rush hour for looking at my cell phone. I wasn’t talking or texting and I was stopped at a red light. Heavy construction going on. Nothing moving. 7/8/13 Fine due date. Fine is $161 plus non-refundable $10 e-Public Access Service Fee. Total due: $171. 6/17/13 Paid $171. Requested trial by written declaration. Sent phone bill showing I wasn’t on the phone at the time. Sent photos of intersection at rush hour with Metro construction going on (yes, I went back there at rush hour to take a picture). Told them I was probably checking the time. I was probably checking email and Facebook, but who gives a fuck? I was stopped at a jammed up red light that probably took 3 greens to get through. Asshole Sherriff Heier moves court from WLA to Beverly Hills for some reason. 12/23/13 I hear nothing until December. You cannot call the court to find out what’s going on. You get a recording that tells you nothing about the status of your ticket. Anyways, finally I get a notice: Not guilty. You’ll get your $161 back within 60 days. 2/21/14 Finally get my $161 back in the mail. 10 months from ticket date. $171 is a lot of money…especially if you’re poor. This seems to be about the average amount for fines these days. Who has time to fight a ticket? even by writing? Most people just pay the fine. Present day law enforcement is not concerned with your safety, they are more interested in generating revenue. I am the 99%.

2014.It’s twenty-fourteen, not two thousand fourteen. For example, the year 1914, is nineteen-fourteen, not one thousand nine hundred and fourteen.  Stop saying two thousand fourteen. It’s twenty-fourteen. Let’s get this right, people. There isn’t much time left. Happy TWENTY-FOURTEEN. 2014.
