Proving once again, that Republicans can be as moronic and ignorant as Democrats
Don’t ever let your kids or the dog drive your car.
That might be a good idea if the ‘bi-farcian’ sponsors of HB5272 have their way, anyhow. On Tuesday at 9am, the Michigan House Judiciary Committee will take up testimony on House Bill 5272, which would authorize state and local police to use un-manned “photo radar” machines to issue speeding tickets on Michigan roads. Language in the bill actually says you are presumed guilty until proven innocent:
(4) In a prosecution for a violation of this section, prima facie evidence that the vehicle described in the citation issued was operated in violation of this section, together with proof that the defendant was at the time of the violation the registered owner of the vehicle, creates a rebuttable presumption that the registered owner of the vehicle was the individual who committed the violation. The presumption is rebutted if the registered owner of the vehicle files an affidavit by regular mail with the clerk of the court that he or she was not the operator of the vehicle at the time of the alleged violation or testifies in open court under oath that he or she was not the operator of the vehicle at the time of the alleged violation. The presumption also is rebutted if a certified copy of a police report, showing that the vehicle had been reported to the police as stolen before the time of the alleged violation of this section, is presented before the appearance date established on the citation. For purposes of this subsection, the owner of a leased or rented vehicle shall provide the name and address of the individual to whom the vehicle was leased or rented at the time of the violation.
Those are a couple of iffy “if” statements there comrades.
Perhaps these losers: Gary Eisen (district 81) Joseph Bellino, Gregory Markkanen, David Martin, Ben Frederick, Robert Bezotte, Pat Outman, Beth Griffin, David LaGrand, Julie Brixie might get a call or a letter from their misrepresented constituents?
Any GOP member in that list should be ashamed of themselves. They should also discover that if not term limited, that their services are no longer desired. Primary challengers could certainly use ‘ignorance of the constitution’ as cause for such challenges.
As for the The Dems? We expect liberty crushing anti constitutional garbage from them on so many levels, that it is hardly noteworthy.
Adam DeAngeli from Rescue Michigan sent out an alert on this round of steaming hot mess, and will talk about it tonight. This was from a blast sent out today.
And in the meantime, please plan to attend the hearing on HB 5272, the traffic RoboCop bill, if you can, Tuesday at 9am before the House Judiciary Committee. Rescue Michigan will be testifying, of course.
And tonight at 10pm, we’re hosting a very special livestream. We’ll be going through this bill in all its gory details.
And in addition to breaking down House Bill 5272, we’ll be addressing some of the craziest grassroots garbage drama we’ve seen yet.
If you know what I mean, you know why you should tune in.
If you don’t, lucky you. But you should probably know about it, because it’s affecting several races and the overall disposition of the grassroots in Michigan.
Either way, you should tune in. We’ll have a vital analysis of this latest ill-conceived legislation, and then a surely-controversial discussion about some high-profile yammerheads.
Tonight, 10pm, multistreamed on our YouTube, Facebook, and Rumble channels!
We will go live on all three, tonight at 10pm!
This is will no be pleasant, but it will be a necessary discussion.
We’ll answer any questions in the the chat from all three channels, so be sure to watch live and join the conversation.
Probably worth a watch.
The manufacturers of these cameras, ply your weak minded legislators with a couple drinks and who knows what else at the bars just down from the Capitol. This stuff pops up about every few years. The last legislative effort was pushed 8 years ago, nearly identical in the assumption of guilt, and the presumption that the constitution is a thing of the past.
You know what to do.
