Mitch Seabaugh must be loosing his mind along with his hair!

He's introduced a bill trying to prohibit local cops from patroling the interstates. What a stupid idea. I'm betting the State Patrol would like to see him tarred and feathered.
With no local cops on the interstate there's no one to watch troopers backs, help them with traffic,WORK WRECKS THEY CAN'T GET TO WITHIN AN HOUR!
Then there is the issue of drug money seized on the interstate. Alot of that is being done by local cops. The money goes back to the small towns and lowers the towns people's tax burden. Not to mention the fact that it takes literally millions of drug dollars out of the hands of drug dealers.
Most people I talked to today thought Seabaugh's motivation was transparently political and shallow. Some rich kid's dad didn't like the ticket he had to pay. I worry that it's worse than that. Why is a State Senator trying to create a situation where so many drug dollars would remain in the hands of thugs and drug cartels? Who's guiding your puppet strings on this Seabaugh?

Seabaugh/Westmoreland faux anti-tax antics will never cease. They are always up to something underhanded. In this case it is just a way of getting more revenue for the state. These clowns will then turn around and pound their chests in front of the Tea Party crowds saying that they don't raise taxes. They do. Seabaugh has porked Georgians with a number of added user fees to raise revenues that don't make sense just so he can get more revenue and falsely claim he hasn't raised taxes. Westmoreland is an even bigger fraud. He and the Republican majority took a budget surplus and spent us in to a huge deficit on the way to bailing out all the fat cats on Wall Street.

Mitch---- you're not fooling everybody.

Are you talking about the Senate Bill that would prohibit cops from using radar on the interstates? I read nothing where they would be prohibited from patroling or otherwise doing their job.

will even get on the interstate if they are stripped of their power to enforce speeding laws there. Would you go there if you had been sent such as message as to lead you to believe you weren't wanted there? I'm like R W Morgan, I just want to hear his rational. And don't feed me the baloney that the police are needed in their cities, their in their cities. Something is obviously behing this and I think we should be told what's up. I heard Mitch got a ticket in East Point. Is it something that superficial?

There is no logic to this proposal as written by lifeinptc. We must be missing something or perhaps a huge typo or something out of context.

Help us understand what is behind this. You have always been sensible, Mitch. Help us understand.

Good ole Mitch must have gotten nailed by the East Point or Union City PD on his way home driving down I-85. Join the club. But I agree, the Troopers need all the back up they can get.
