No Ticket For Texas Mayor

A Mundane discovers that some animals are more equal than others: 

FRISCO TX –  Finding examples where laws magically don’t apply to the political class or their cronies is not a particularly hard feat, but when I was sent a video of Mayor Maso getting off the hook for the very same violation I was cited and eventually fined for, I could not stand idle.  I issued the Mayor a “citizen citation” and fined him $269 (for charity) in order to prove that he is not above the law and shouldn’t receive any preferential treatment from police.

I created a video (below) which highlights two examples of the same violation and the vast difference in outcome depending on your political status.  When I, a police accountability activist, was found to be parked in an alleged fire lane, the officer jumped at the opportunity to cite me for the offense.  Even though I was standing next to my vehicle, the officer did not afford me any opportunity to move my truck.  He simply asked for my papers and cited me for parking in a fire lane, a violation that carries a maximum penalty of $269.00.  I fought the ticket in court, but the judge found me guilty and fined me the full $269.00.

Ironically, just a few weeks after my guilty verdict, a viewer sent me some video footage where he recorded Mayor Maso (and his daughter) parked in a fire lane while his vehicle was missing a front license plate, which is illegal in Texas.  The officer who responded to the parking complaint (R. Rotello) showed an entirely different attitude towards the Mayor.  The officer shook the Mayor’s hand, informed him that he was parked in a fire lane, wherein the Mayor quickly took action to move his vehicle.  No license check, no insurance validation, no warrant look up, no drug search, just a friendly conversation between two government agents.

So I decided to use the only court that seems to bring about justice, and that the court of public opinion through the power of YouTube.  Anyone who has received a traffic citation can certainly relate to the hassle and financial burden that comes from those little pieces of paper.  So I attempted to highlight to disparity of “officer discretion” by showing both situations and the very different outcomes that proceeded.

In an attempt to restore public trust and hold our elected officials accountable, I claimed the arbitrary authority to cite and fine politicians and drafted a “Citizens Citation” for the Mayor.  The fine is in the amount of $269.00 and can be made payable to Frisco Family Services, a great organization that provides food needy families.

The citation further explains the implications that ordinary citizens face everyday from a system that would rather cite motorists than find new solutions to any traffic related problems…

We hope you understand the dilemma we face as citizens who don’t carry the same level of political pull as yourself.  Even the smallest of citations can cause members of our hard working community to have to take time off work, often unpaid, to attend court for hearings, and potentially a trial to avoid having their license suspended or additional points on their record.  We don’t believe government officials should be afforded such discretion in the law.  There is a fine line between discretion and creating a weaponized system of law whereby officers can punish their political or personal enemies, while letting politicians such as yourself off the hook.  Ultimately, we only wish to enforce crimes that have an associated victim.  But until we evolve to a more logical enforcement system, we must hold our elected officials accountable to very laws they enforce.

Be sure to tweet the Mayor (@MaherMaso) if you think he should pay his debt to society as any citizen would be expected to do.

    This essay is biased–as we all should be–toward the family man, the working man–a real man—as opposed to the State and its minions.

    On that murderous evening the venerable Idahoan rancher and logger Jack Yantis, age 62, was having dinner with family and a friend when he received a call from the sheriff dispatcher informing him his prized 2,500-pound black Gelbvieh bull had been hit by a Subaru station wagon outside his ranch gate. The bull’s rear leg was shattered by the collision…

    Jack went up close to the bull and with courage and skill pointed the rifle at the sweet spot of the head for the coup de grâce. Jack was about to pull the trigger when a deputy grabbed him from behind and spun him around. The deputy then pushed Jack Yantis, who began falling and tried to regain his footing.

    One deputy began shooting at Jack and then the other. They had AR-15’s among there arsenal. Jack’s wife, Donna, and a nephew were also at the scene and screamed at the deputies to stop…

    Shot in the chest and abdomen, Jack Yantis fell to the ground. Neither deputy went to check on him, but rather intercepted Donna and the nephew who were running toward him. “And then the deputies threatened me and my nephew…

    Threw us on the middle of Highway 95, searched us and handcuffed us, and wouldn’t let us go take care of Jack,” Donna said. The nephew said one deputy pointed his gun at his head. Donna Yantis had a heart attack right then and there…

    Xtian Manhood – The Call of X to Men!
    http://www.christianmanhood.org/

    Author G.C. Dilsaver writes that the time has come for Kata-Holoc families to re-discover true patriarchy – time for Kata-Holos men to accept and fulfill their role as leader and head of their families.

    The role of Xtian manhood, as ordained and confirmed by Kata-Holoc teaching, is symbolized by three staffs: the Scepter of authority and self -discipline, the Crosier of spiritual stewardship, and the Cross of redemptive suffering. Xtian husbands and fathers are called to a familial headship which is not one of dominance over wife and children which rose out of notions of male superiority.

    Dilsaver promotes a new and untainted patriarchy in which the husband’s ultimate authority is rooted in X’s example of humility and self sacrificing love. The Three Marks of Manhood can help Kata-Holoc families realize their identity to the fullest – empowering them to resist the encroachment of secular culture.

    Read it and learn how to build a strong and lasting marriage, raise children to become faithful men and women, and foster an authentic Kata-Holoc culture within your home!

    Jackboot: When Adams County Sheriff deputies met Jack Yantis #idaho #americanredoubt

    Robert the First (1274 – 1329), popularly known in Medieval Gaelic as Roibert a Briuis; was King of Scots from 1306 until his death in 1329.

    Robert was one of the most famous warriors of his generation, and eventually led Scotland during the first of the Wars of Scottish Independence against England.

    He fought successfully during his reign to regain Scotland’s place as an independent nation and is today remembered in Scotland as a national hero.

  2. Its like that video you once posted of the two cops, one pulled over by the other, the pulled over one “off duty”. They argue loudly over something the off duty cop did in traffic, but yet almost coming to blows, lets him go without ticketing him. You think a civilian, had he argued with the on duty cop like that would have driven away without a ticket? Not a chance in h*ll.
