Kingsport Joins Knoxville in Unconstitutional Red-light Program

We all know that the Knoxville City Council is against the U.S. Constitution. After all, they don't believe in the confrontation clause, instead believing that it's OK to farm out police duties to cameras in an ill-conceived attempt to raise revenue.

(As an aside, I don't care what political party you belong to - you won't get my vote as an incumbent running for Knoxville City Council. Heck, I'll donate money to your opponents, incumbents.)

Now it seems that the oh-so-knowledgeable politicians in Kingsport have also decided to sell their citizens and their safety down the road to RedFlex in an attempt to tax their residents in the name of filling the city coffers.

One can only hope that the citizenry rises up and ends this ridiculous program. Perhaps it's time to start digging into the contracts of these cities with RedFlex, the financing of RedFlex, and even the personal finances of the councilmen and councilwomen who push these programs against the will of their constituents.
