Confrontation Clause

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

A discussion was brought up at a local motorcycle forum about speed cameras in construction zones. After reading several dozen posts I was inspired to create and post this:
I think one of the underlying problems inherent with speed cameras-or any sort of traffic camera-is that as Americans we have a right to face our accusers.
 
 
In this case, its a camera. How do you argue with a camera? The evidence it provides may be right. Then again, it may be wrong. How can you possibly cross-examine this witness? You can't, which automatically tips the scale of justice to favor the camera's owner.

Right on, Don. We need to break out the spray paint and block these surveillance cameras.
