Reader: People who don't like red-light cameras drive like inconsiderate a$$bags

Our post about the latest effort by one state senator to ban red-light cameras inspired numerous readers to share their dislike of the devices. But not everyone thinks they're such a bad thing. Here's a case in point.

The only people who don't like the red light cameras are the ones who drive like inconsiderate self-centered assbags and don't follow basic traffic laws. Bunch of whiny c*nts because they get caught running lights or blowing through them at high speed. I guess the next motherfucker that blows a light and hits someone or kills them gets followed, beaten or shot....
