Will all great Neptune’s ocean wash this blood clean from his hand?

Bill Seitz is, apparently, able to see into the hearts of municipal legislators & see them for the greedy liars that they truly are.
After Columbus stripped cities of funding used to cover police & fire departments, they now want to put further burdens on them by outlawing technology that frees up police & cuts down on emergency runs by the fire departments.
And what will the costs to society be when the cameras with proven track records of improved safety be?
In 2007, 90 crashes occurred at the 10 intersections with red light cameras. In 2012, the number dropped to 48 crashes.
The legislation would cost cities across Ohio about $77 million to keep their programs operational.
Mr Seitz - the blood and carnage will be all yours.

From the Frogtown Noose Son
“We’re not sneaking them up on people,” [Springfield City Manager] Bodenmiller said. “We have signage that announces where they are. We’re not moving them around. We haven’t placed them all over town, just placed them at the intersections where we’ve had the most crashes.
“I’ve said it before, but if it were all about a money grab, we’d put them all over the place and we wouldn’t announce that they were here,” he said. “We’re doing the exact opposite.”
